Our Advanced level classes are helpful in making a substantial progress in syllabus

Attendance Policy:

DK film music school has had years of experience teaching, and we’ve come to find that missing classes is a no-no. We plan to push you to great lengths for you to achieve your goals in this course. We also understand that you may have some extenuating circumstances that causes you to miss school. Hence, we will allow up to 3 missed classes in the entire course – but not in the same week. We already are short on time and if you were to miss classes in the same week, you might miss the opportunity to learn a major skillset. In order to maintain the pace of the class, we will not offer any make up classesFees:


Fee structure will be discussed at the time of Audition
