Make-Up Days

Life happens. Things come up. Your private lesson is a set scheduled time each week with your professional teacher. If you cannot make your lesson, please mark yourself Absent in the MyMusicStaff Portal or let our Front Desk team know. There are 8 days set aside in our School Year for Make-Up Days: Early January, Early May and end of June. During those times (see our School Year Calendar), students can sign up for any missed lessons due to illness, vacation, etc. This is an added value of being part of the Joyful Sounds Family. Most music studios do not offer make-ups for missed lessons on student reason. The are no financial credits issues for student absence.

If a teacher has to cancel due to illness or other reason, the studio will do everything possible to create a make-up option, or financial credit will be applied to the family.

Kindermusik Make-Ups:

While you are an enrolled Kindermusik Family, you have access to unlimited make-ups. Having a sick day? Away? Simply log into and choose from the Make-Up options that are age appropriate for your child. Unsure? Give our front desk team a call – we’re happy to help!

Note: this option is for actively enrolled families only. Once your enrollment ends, you cannot access make-ups, so do not let them pile up.

There are no Make-Up options for other Group Classes at this time.


Snow/Weather Closure Days will move to a virtual format to avoid the need to take up scheduled makeup days and to keep the schedule and learning opportunities consistent. Families should prepare a virtual space at home to prepare for a snow day class or lesson.
