Cancellation/Reschedule/Make Up policy


All the teachers here at The Music Box NY value our time spent teaching and respect your child's time spent learning. We kindly ask that you do the same as we take great pride in preparing for your child’s classes to ensure they receive the best quality lessons possible.


  • Reschedule fee for in-studio lessons (within 24 hours): $30

  • Cancellation more than 24 hours in advance: no fee. You will receive a make up credit to be used within that month. You may be assigned an alternative instructor if your original instructor is not available. In the event that make ups cannot be done, the lesson credit will be rolled over to the next month.

  • Cancellations within 24 hours/no shows: Full fee.

    • We understand that emergencies occur. To avoid the cancellation fee, you may schedule a makeup class, depending on the discretion and availability of your instructor. Repeated cancellations and last minute rescheduling may result in forfeiture of the full fee.

  • Make ups for in-person lessons can be done online.

  • If anyone in your household has been exposed to COVID-19, please inform us and lessons will be made up online.

The Music Box NY holds recitals twice a year in June and December as a way to showcase our students’ progress, and provide them a chance to further develop their confidence and musicianship. Pre-COVID19, our recitals were held in-person at The Alchemical Studios by Union Square, Manhattan. Since the start of 2020, we have held 3 virtual recitals. In December 2021, we are planning an online recital for our non-NY based students, and are hoping to resume in-person recitals.


For in-person recitals, each performer may receive a trophy, certificate and gift bag. This may vary depending on the recital. Tickets are available to audience members. Performers are not required to pay a fee.


For online recitals, performers may receive a gift that will be mailed to them. Each participant is required to pay a participation fee.
