Frequently Asked Questions About Our Lesson Program

Q: Do you offer make-ups for missed lessons?
A: Lessons cancelled with at least 24 hours’ notice are able to be rescheduled, subject to the instructor’s availability. (1 Make-up per calendar month)

Q: What if my teacher is absent?
A: If your instructor cancels a lesson (meaning the lesson is totally cancelled for the week, and not re-scheduled) you are not liable for the lesson fee. You will receive a credit for that lesson in the tuition for the following month.

Q: If I miss a lesson, do I still have to pay?
A: Because we have committed to reserving a specific time slot for you, that appointment time cannot be otherwise filled, and therefore payment cannot be refunded.

Q: How do I change my day or time?
A: Permanent lesson change forms are available at the rental counter and have to be turned in to our Lesson Manager.

Q: How do I withdraw from lessons?
A: In order to withdraw from lessons permanently, please let your instructor know when your last lesson date will be. A minimum 14-Day notice is required. No refunds will be given for early withdrawal.

Q: If I want to pull out of lessons, can you guarantee that my day, time and teacher will still be available when I return?
A: Keep in mind that if you choose to pull out of lessons, that spot is now available to other students to book into. We will do our best to work with your schedule and your request for specific teachers, but we cannot guarantee that there will be a spot for you when you return. If you are extremely inflexible with your day, time and teacher choice, then we suggest you stay in lessons even if you are going to miss a few classes. Remember that make-up lessons can be arranged for classes you miss. Throughout the year, those few lessons that you miss will not hinder your learning to play as much as it would to stop your lessons entirely.
