SCHEDULING AND PAYMENT Students must commit to a regular weekly or every-other week time slot. Payment for the first two lessons can be made at time of the lessons, but from then on payment is due in advance for the month's lessons, payable at the first lesson of each month. In light of current circumstances, payment can also be arranged on a strictly lesson-by-lesson basis. Any legitimate cancellations from a previous month will be credited forward to the next month's payment, but the balance is still due at the first lesson of the month. Payment is handled via Venmo or PayPal.
CANCELLATIONS Students will be charged for lessons cancelled within 48 hours of the scheduled time. If the student isn’t online more than 20 minutes past the scheduled time, the lesson will be considered cancelled. Should the need to cancel arise, it is the student's responsibility to reschedule within the week of the missed lesson. Students may give notice of schedule changes by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a week's notice. Cancellations within a week should be done by phone at (413)387-7419.
DISCONTINUATION OF LESSONS Students must give a week's notice before the last lesson, or will still be charged for the lesson.
