It is not our responsibility if you fail to attend any class
Make-up classes are not arranged
Out of our observance to candidate conditions (such as travel, test, etc.), a temporary postponement is allowed for long periods ONLY after notification by the candidate at least 4 days in advance. In such case, the candidate’s name is dropped off from the schedule until renewal of registration with the probability of change in class timing and instructor.
In case of absence by the instructor for emergencies, the management immediately provides a replacement without influencing the educational process. We all follow the standardized books and methods of ABRSM under the supervision of Dr. Mohamed El Tobgy who follows up all classes.
Out of our keenness of the educational process, candidates MAY NOT be accompanied into the rooms except if two persons are enrolled together.
