There are no scholarships for private lessons. Applications are available in the MTC office or click here.
Make-Up Classes and Lessons
A make-up class will only be held if a class was cancelled due to teacher unavailability or inclement weather. This make-up will be scheduled for the week following the final week of classes. Students cannot make-up their class in another section of the same class.
There is ONE private lesson make-up provided per term. The day and time is determined by the teacher’s availability. Make-up lessons canceled or missed by a student will be considered made up. A second chance for a make-up lesson is determined solely by the teacher. In addition, lessons canceled due to inclement weather or teacher unavailability will be made up at the end of the term or -based on the teacher’s availability- during the semester at a mutually-agreed upon time.
MTC offers ONE Trial Class per student. A Trial Class may be attended so long as the class is not full. After trialing a class, the parent has twenty-four hours to register their child or the space will be forfeited. Other than these twenty-four hours, a slot will NEVER be held for a Trial Class student. If a student is registered for a class they have trialed then the parent must pay for the Trial Class as well as all future classes, plus the $30 annual registration fee (if this applies). A student who is registered for the class after a Trial Class gets ONE additional Trial Class that can be used in the future. A student who does not register for the class after a Trial Class gets no additional Trial Classes.
Students are expected to attend all classes and lessons regularly and punctually, and are expected to notify MTC if they must miss a class or lesson at least twenty-four hours in advance. If a student misses two consecutive classes and has not contacted MTC, the instructor will contact the parent. Three unexcused absences are grounds for termination with no refund or credit. Students must pay for all classes or lessons whether taken or missed.
Musicals and Performance Classes
Once a student has auditioned for a musical or performance class and tuition has been paid, should the student drop out, there will be no refund or credit. If a student drops out after the rehearsal process has begun, the student will not be eligible to audition for another MTC musical or performance class for one year.
