Policies

AUTOMATIC BILLING
We require automatic billing. By signing this document, you are authorizing the use of your credit card to be charged on the 1st of the month or upon the 1st visit (for Prorated/PAYG lessons).

MAKE – UPS
Our teachers have reserved a time-frame for your lessons. Our teachers generally have a full schedule, which makes it very difficult for them to accommodate changes to your reserved time period. We want you to be the best musicians you can be! Please make every effort to be at your lessons, as attendance can directly influence your musical progress. Students can make up 4 lessons per year per instrument as the schedule allows. All others missed lessons will be forfeited. However, if a teacher is out, they are required to make up the missed lessons on either a makeup day or at another designated time. Teacher makeups are additional to your 4 makeup lessons a year. Our scheduling coordinators will work to accommodate a time that works for you.

For 2017, we will NOT have lessons on the following days:

  • March 13th-18th (Spring Break)

We may cancel lessons if weather conditions are severe. This is for the safety of staff, teachers, and students. There will be no makeup lessons for these events.

COMMUNICATION-REMIND.COM
Our Text Messaging System is our primary source of communication about pertinent information concerning lessons. Please text “@woodshed” to the number “81010.” Other forms of communication are emails, announcements on the homepage of the website, Facebook, Twitter, and store signs. Please check these mediums for the latest lesson news.

TERMINATING LESSONS
Tuition is NONREFUNDABLE. If you terminate your lesson mid-month, you will still be charged for the ENTIRE MONTH of lessons. We require that you notify us in writing by the 3rd week of the month if you are terminating your lessons for the following month. If you have remaining lessons, you can make them up as the schedule allows. Please fill out Termination Form online or REQUEST in PERSON at the scheduling desk.

STUDENT PERKS
