Students who withdraw from the program may be entitled to a refund of a percentage of their tuition if such notice is submitted in writing one month in advance.

Missed Lessons

Since your payment secures your time slot for the year, missed lessons will not be refunded for any reason. If the teacher must cancel a lesson, a make-up lesson will be offered. There is no guarantee of make-ups for student absences. Private lessons missed by the student because of an illness or an emergency may be made up pending a vacancy in a teacher’s schedule; however, as our teachers’ schedules tend to be full, this cannot be guaranteed. Group lessons and/or classes missed by the student cannot be made up.
