If a student must miss a weekly lesson due to illness or other circumstance there are two options for making up your lesson.  If there is a lesson time open due to another student's cancellation, you may be able to fill it. But if there is nothing available it is your responsibility to attend one of the two Saturday make-up days to avoid losing your missed lesson. Please limit your make-ups to no more than two missed lessons per semester.
