Attendance Policy
Payment must be made for all classes, whether taken or missed. Classes will not be made up in the case of student absence. As a courtesy to the teacher, we ask that the school of music be notified before class time if a student is to be absent . If the teacher is unable to give a class, the school will endeavour to organise a substitute teacher. If this is not possible, a make-up lesson will be arranged.

Dun Laoghaire School of Music reserves the right to discontinue the enrolment of any student who misses three consecutive lessons without notification, who has a pattern of absence or who is constantly late.

No refunds are given
