Our Private Lesson Cancellation Policy ...
Students are permitted to cancel 1 lesson per session that will be eligible for a make up lesson by their teacher before the end of the school year. As well, during March, if you cancel the March Break week, we allow for a second cancellation the week before or after that March Break week to accommodate for 2 week vacations.
In order to cancel a lesson, students must notify our front counter staff either in person, by phone or by email no later then 10am the day of the lesson to be cancelled. Lessons cancelled after the 10am deadline or any missed lessons will not be eligible for a make up lesson. As well, any lesson cancelled beyond the 1 per session limit will not be eligible for a make up lesson.
At the end of our school year, we offer a week of make up opportunities for any outstanding make up lessons. If a make up lesson remains outstanding at that point, a student has 2 options: (a) they can opt for a refund of 50% of the value of the lesson(s) (refunded Aug 1 2018). (b) they can apply 70% of the outstanding lesson(s) value towards the following years registration. All outstanding make up lessons must be either made up or credited by the end of the current school or when a student withdraws from our schedule.
Adult guitar classes, Yamaha Junior Music programs, Rock Choir and Rock Band programs are all group activities and therefore unfortunately do not offer any cancellation/makeup type facility for missed lessons, cancelled or not.
Our Group Lesson Cancellation Policy ...
For any of our group programs which include the Yamaha Music Education courses for kids, our adult guitar classes and any of our band or choir programs our cancellation policy is quite different then our private lessons. For the Yamaha course, we do not offer any make up opportunities for missed classes. If you miss a class, your teacher will be happy to send you the assigned work for that week but no make up class is offered. For our adult guitar classes, we do not offer make up classes for a missed class but we do have class videos that would be made available to you in the event of a missed class. For our band programs, we unfortunately do not offer any make ups for missed rehearsals.
