Missed Lessons, Cancellations, Withdrawals, and Refunds

Group classes: There are NO REFUNDS for group classes, unless the class is cancelled by the Academy.

Missed private lessons: The Academy and its faculty are under no obligation to give refunds or make up lessons for lessons missed by students.

Cancelled private lessons: Lessons cancelled by faculty will be made up at a mutually convenient time or the student’s account will be credited.

Private lesson withdrawal: To discontinue private lessons and suspend automatic charges, please notify the office in writing one full month prior to the first of the month. Notice given to the instructor only (verbally or otherwise) and non-attendance does not constitute withdrawal from lessons. For example, if you plan to discontinue/suspend lessons in May, then we will need to receive your written notice by the first lesson in April. If no notice is given by the first lesson of the month before lessons are being discontinued/suspended, the student/parent will be responsible for the next full month’s tuition.
