Important Private Music Lesson Policies

Lesson Commitment
By enrolling in the Private Music Lesson Program, a student (of any age) is agreeing to attend lessons throughout from the date they start until the end of May. Please take this commitment into consideration before signing up.

Student absences & Make-Up Lessons
Each student is permitted one excused absence per school year. The Private Music Lesson Program must be notified by phone or by email by 9 AM or as soon as possible on the lesson day for any absence. The Lifelong Music Academy office can be reached by telephone at 508-613-1481 or by email at  To be respectful of the music faculty member’s schedule, we ask that you provide 24-hour notification when you know you must cancel a lesson for reasons other than illness (vacation, scheduling conflicts, etc.). For all student absences after the first excused absence, subsequent missed lessons will not be made-up and no refunds will be issued.

Teacher Absences
All teacher absences will be made-up or a refund will be issued.

Withdrawals & Refunds
Refunds for private lessons may be requested only within the first three lessons.

Holiday or Weather Cancellations
If the Franklin Public Schools are closed (i.e. holidays, school vacations) Private Music Lessons will not be held. The exact lesson schedule can be found on the menu to the right.  If the Franklin Public Schools are closed due to a weather emergency, music lessons will not be held and a make-up will be scheduled.

Professional Development Days
Please note that Private Music lessons are held on Professional Development Days.  The exact lesson schedule can be found on the menu to the right.

Lessons are held at Franklin High School.  Enter through the Community Doors (panther above) on the left end of the building near the gym.  Press the buzzer in the far left corner.  We will buzz you in.  Enter the hallway and turn right.  The Lifelong Music Academy / Lifelong Community Learning Office is the first office on the right, Room 137.  Each student will then be shown to the room where their lesson will be.

Attendance Sheets
Attendance sheets are posted on the entry desk in the Lifelong Music Academy / Lifelong Community Learning Office. All students are required to sign in prior to each lesson.  Students who are in grade 6 or below must be signed in and out by a parent/guardian.
