Private Lesson Policies

Attendance Policy

Our attendance policy is NO-HASSLE! Simply call, text or email us up to 30-minutes before your lesson and we will gladly reschedule, NO-HASSLES! All make up lessons expire at the end of the calendar month in which they were originally scheduled. Lessons canceled in the last week of the month will receive a one-week courtesy extension.

Billing Policy

All students are required to enroll in a monthly auto-debit program to pay for ongoing lessons. Payments are deducted on the 25th day of every month for the upcoming month. Payments continue deducting automatically every month until cancelled. VTMA requires a 30-day notice to cancel lessons indefinitely. To cancel lessons for an indefinite amount of time or terminate them completely, you must do so by filling out the Lesson Termination Form located on our website. Payments will continue deducting automatically until 30 days after the lesson termination form is received. There are no refunds for students wishing to cancel lessons after payment has been received. All students must attend or forfeit the remainder of lessons paid for.
