There are no refunds for missed lessons, however, two make up lessons are given per year. Makeup lessons must be arranged within one month. Switching time slots with other students is fine, but please confirm with the teacher before the lesson occurs. Lessons can usually be maintained in the instance of a hand/arm/finger injury.
If driving is hazardous, lessons will be canceled and parents notified before noon on lesson day.
Tuition is payable in 12 equal monthly installments, payable on or before the FIRST lesson of each month. Please respect this payment deadline.
