Regular attendance is a critical part of the learning process at Mullins Music. Please make every effort to attend your scheduled lesson time. If you cannot attend a lesson for any reason, please notify Mullins Music as far in advance as possible by calling 727.856.0263. Prior notification does not exempt students from payment. Students are charged for all the lessons for which they register, including those missed through student absence. If a teacher is absent, the lesson will be made up at a mutually convenient time before the end of the semester or term. If the teacher is unable to make up the lesson, the student's account will be credited.
Make Up Lessons
A total of 2 makeup lessons are allowed per semester or term. Makeups must be scheduled during the semester or term in which they occur; make-up credit may not be carried into the following semester or term. If you need to cancel or reschedule a lesson, please make sure to provide 24 hours notice to receive credit for the lesson. Families are expected to pay for the entire semester or term in which they are enrolled.
Payments for lessons, classes, or ensembles carry an automatic $15 late charge if not paid within 5 days following the due date.
