Weekly Lesson Commitments

All students are encouraged to take weekly lessons in order to achieve greater success with their musical development. Students taking private lessons have a weekly time reserved for them. If a student needs to cancel a lesson, he/she is still responsible for paying for that weekly time reserved. The cancellation and makeup policies are listed below.

Cancellation Policy

In the event that a student needs to cancel his/her regularly scheduled lesson, a 24 hour notice needs to be given to be eligible for a makeup lesson. 24 hour notice can be given either by an email to or by voice mail at Marchwood Music (610-363-6520). In the event of a last minute cancellation, please contact Rick on his cell phone at 610-405-6672. Cancellations due to WEATHER are handled by scheduling makeup lessons.

Makeup Lessons

If a student cancels a lesson and is eligible for a makeup, it is the student’s responsibility to contact Marchwood Music to schedule that makeup lesson by phone (610-363-6520) or email to Makeup lessons do not have to be done within the same week as the cancelled lesson. Depending on the instructor’s schedule, time can be added on to the regular lesson time, or a separate lesson can be scheduled. Please be aware that makeup lessons cannot be applied as credit towards upcoming tuition due and cannot be used in place of payment. We make every effort to be flexible with scheduling makeup lessons given the tight schedules we all keep.

Group lessons can be made up as per the established group lesson schedule. If there is a circumstance where an instructor needs to cancel a lesson and cannot reschedule a convenient makeup time, the student will not be charged for the missed lesson.
