SCHOOL CLOSINGS

In the event of inclement weather, we will post the official school status on our social media. When in doubt, call the school office at (703) 828-9494 ​for information. ​Check out our school calendar.

SCHEDULE CHANGE

Once a student’s lesson time is scheduled, it will stay the same for the entire semester. Schedule change is only allowed when a new semester begins.

SAFETY

MSM faculty and staff are not responsible for supervising children outside of teaching time. To ensure your child’s safety, please be sure to pick him/her up promptly after lesson time. Parents, legal guardians of minor students and adult students waive the right to any legal action for injury sustained on school property from normal lesson activity.

PARKING

Parking is available in the building garage in the visitor parking spaces only.

TOUCH POLICY

Touch is to identify tension, correct alignment, and help students develop their own kinesthetic awareness. This work is crucial for beginners, and essential where players have developed habits which require somatic (movement) retraining.

MEDIA RELEASE

Unless MSM is given advance written notice to the contrary, students, upon registration, give consent to MSM or outside media to photograph or record (video or audio) lessons, classes, and concerts.  Please be aware that these photos or recordings will used for promotional purposes including print, website, and social media.  All photographs and recordings are taken and used in a professional manner only.
