The school year runs from September to June and contains 36 lessons. The total is paid in equal monthly payments at a prorated price regardless of how many lessons happen per month up to a maximum of 36 for the year. Should a student sign up part way through the year or need to end earlier than June, the total number of lessons and the monthly fee will be calculated on an individual basis from the start date to June or specified end date.
Payment is due at the beginning of each month and reserves a weekly lesson time. A delinquent account (two missed payments) will result in lesson time being forfeited until the account returns to good standing. Should the original lesson time not be available, the student/parent will have to arrange a new time slot.
Summer lessons run through July and August on a weekly basis. Payment is due at the beginning of each month for the desired number of lessons, and reserves a weekly lesson time.
Students taking summer vacation are requested to provide the dates at the beginning of the month so schedules can be adapted and invoices modified.
Lessons can be paid by Credit Card, E-Transfer, Cash, and Cheque.

Cancellation and Missed Lessons
A weekly time is held for each student and it is expected that both teacher and student will make the lesson time. If a student cancels a lesson it is up to the student or parent to log in and find an open, available spot in their teacher's schedule for a rescheduling. Maximum of two make-up credits will be issued per student, per year for a completely cancelled lesson.
*Group Lesson students will not be issued any make-up credits*.
A one month notice must be given to drop/cancel ongoing lessons.
Make-up Lesson Policy
- Any lessons missed by the teacher will be made up. If this isn’t possible during the time allowed, the missed lessons will be credited or refunded.
- There are NO refunds on unused or canceled lessons.
- For convenience, we can keep your credit card number on our secure server and run the lesson fees when they come due. Receipts and email reminders will be sent out to let you know when the fees are due.
- Cheques should be made out to Acoustic Blend Cafe.
