Rules and Guidelines
The Conservatory is an institution of higher learning, in which the classical method of music instruction (proven over decades and centuries) is emphasized. The Conservatory is the ONLY Founding School of the Royal Conservatory of MusicDevelopment Program (MDP) in the entire greater Houston area. The Conservatory has now been voted the “BEST in KATY” and is the most awarded school of music.Please understand you are securing a lesson time slot, “not” a particular instructor. ALL instructors who teach at The Conservatory are professionals and are very capable of teaching you or your child. In the extremely rare instance that your preferred instructor is out or no longer available, The Conservatory reserves the right to assign another professional instructor to your chosen time slot tocontinue with your lessons. Having a substitute instructor does NOT relieve the student of their responsibility to attend their lesson.

Another very important facet to a child’s learning is the involvement of the parent during the student’s practice time at home. Therefore, it is expected that a parent(s) will assist their child with their studies, especially up to the age of seven (7), and hopefully beyond. However, the early formative years are most critical and is where the parent(s) MUST commit to working with their child for proper age-related musical development.
__ I have read the above and agree.
ALL matters dealing with the student’s lesson shall be addressed to the front office, and NOT to the individual instructors. Instructors only teach. The office staff is there for any help you may need with sudden or permanent changes to the class, day, and time.

To participate in our recitals, a student must have a minimum of 6 months of lessons with The Conservatory. A student must also be an “active” student to participate in our recitals. A withdrawal of the students prior to their scheduled recital will disqualify them from being able to participate in the recital. Please note that, at present, there is a $5.00, per child, fee to participate in the recital.

Tuition payments are NON-REFUNDABLE. Withdrawals require a 30-day notice AND the completion of our withdrawal form or submission of a withdrawal notice via email. Any withdrawal with less than the required notice, or conducted via telephone, will incur a $35.00 drop fee.

Please note that consistent lesson attendance is CRITICAL to achieving maximum benefits of the lessons provided. Therefore, The Conservatory will allow a maximum of four (4) makeup lessons within the school calendar year (September 1 st – May 31 st ), conditioned on the request being received at least 24 hours in advance via email or phone call. We urge you to leave a voicemail in case of any sudden situation and you will miss the following day and we are closed. Should an absence occur due to illness or medical emergency on the date of the lesson, we will reschedule the lesson. Due to an overwhelming number of rescheduled lessons, makeups will need to be completed within 90 days of the requested missed lesson date or will be forfeited. As has been our policy, there will be NO makeup given for missed or cancelled makeup lessons. Please keep in mind rescheduled lessons are not guaranteed to be completed or credited to the account. Conservatory administrators will advise the eligible families of the dates available from which to choose their makeup depending on the availability of the teacher’s schedule. If the school must cancel lessons due to circumstances outside of our control, the missed lessons will be rescheduled as quickly as possible but may warrant the lesson to be conducted on a day other than your normal lesson day.
