A.J.'S DRUM SCHOOL
Each student is allowed (2) cancellations per quarter. Quarters
are concurrent with the calendar year; January-March, April-June,
July-September, October-December. These two cancellations
may be used for any reason. Monies paid in advance will
be credited towards future lessons. If your two cancellations
have been used for any given quarter there is a charge equal
to one lesson fee for each additional cancellation. Unused
cancellations are NOT rolled over into the next quarter.
You may cancel up to one hour before the lesson time. You
MUST contact the instructor in order to use your cancellation
allowance. If you neglect to call or if you do not give
at least one hour’s notice you will be considered
a NO SHOW. NO SHOWS will forfeit any monies paid in advance
for that lesson even if you have not used up your cancellation
allowance for the quarter. If you have not paid for the
lesson in advance you must pay the cancellation fee when
you come for your next lesson. One cancellation equals one
lesson not a group of lessons.
EXTENDED LEAVE. Extended leave for vacations
and holidays can be arranged with your instructor with proper
advance notice (at least one week). However it is up to
you to work this out with the instructor and any temporary
deviation from the Cancellation Policy will be at the instructor’s
CANCELLATION BY INSTRUCTOR. We are also
professional musicians and may from time to time have to
cancel or reschedule a lesson. The student will of course
not be charged and any prepaid amount will be credited to
A FINAL NOTE. We have adopted this policy
as a means of fairly dealing with the inevitable events
that necessitate cancellation of a lesson. Kids and adults
get sick, cars break down, and people have to work late.
We understand that these things happen. A student shouldn’t
have to pay for a lesson he or she doesn’t get to
take. The other side of the coin is that the teacher has
committed his time for you, the student, and can’t
stay in business if people don’t keep their appointments.
We realize the need to be flexible and are willing to do
so within reason.
