- Guarantee Policy Enroll your son/daughter when they have time to do homework, and study between classes. If a student copies from the answer book or is too busy to memorize and complete practice sheets, the guarantee does not apply. Eligibility and suitability of the student to repeat the class is at the discretion of the teacher. Children with learning disabilities will require private lessons to supplement the classes. We recommend supplemental private theory lessons for students who have forgotten their rudiments and harmony.
