At the commencement of your services with us you are agreeing to abide by the following policies.
#1 - You will provide 30 days notice subsequent to the billing cycle for any membership changes or cancellations by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
For example, if you need a change for August 15th, you’ll want to let us know by July 1st.
This is a sign of respect for your coach and staff and ensures we as a community can plan accordingly.
#2 - Any private lessons cancelled less than 24 hours result in that lesson credit being forfeited.
Your coach needs your commitment to show up during the time you reserve with them so they can deliver as promised.
#3 - Any group classes cancelled less than 4 hours in advance will result in a $10 fee.
This is to ensure it’s easy for those who are serious about taking a class to get a spot and that the coach has adequate time to program for those who will be coming.
#4 - If an additional lesson is taken, you’ll be billed for that lesson separately and in addition to your normal membership rate.
Whether it’s a month with 5 weeks or you’re inspired to try out a new instrument, feel free to go where your interests flow. Just know if it falls outside of your prepaid services, it may be extra.
