Cancellation Policy

You have reserved a time slot for the weekly lesson so it is extremely important to honor your commitment.  I plan my day around my teaching and, therefore, can only provide makeup lessons in the case of an emergency.  Any lessons missed by the teacher will be rescheduled within 30 days.  There are no refunds offered for missed lessons.
