as detailed on the registration

or uncollected checks is $30.

lesson will be at the schools discretion. Regular
attendance is expected. As soon as possible the
student should notify the management office in writing
(e-mail preferred) of any absence.

* Make-up lessons are only added to the end of the program

Students are considered registered for an assigned program
until the management office receives and approves a written
request to withdraw. Notification of withdrawal
from lessons or classes must be received in writing by
the management office and is effective from the date the
written withdrawal is received, not the date of the last
lesson attended. Teacher notification is not considered
formal notice of withdrawal. A students program
will be canceled if two or more lessons are missed without
written notification and the remainder of the tuition
fees will not be refunded.
If a student discontinues the program before the third
lesson of a program, a refund will be given for 50% of
the remaining tuition. Refunds will not be issued
after the third lesson except under extraordinary circumstances
with written request. Registration fees are non-refundable.
In the event of prolonged absence due to an emergency,
written requests for refunds will be considered on a case
by case basis by the management office.
