We’re sorry to see you go! If for any reason a student must stop lessons, 30 days' notice is required to allow enough time to adjust schedules. At that time, the date of the last lesson will be determined and the final tuition payment will be prorated to reflect the number of lesson weeks that will have passed by the last lesson date.
Since the total cost of lessons each year is divided into equal payments for convenience, the monthly tuition payments don't exactly cover the number of lessons taken each month. When stopping lessons in the middle of the year, the monthly payments that have been received are totaled and compared to the total cost of lessons that will be completed by the last scheduled lesson date. The difference is either discounted or billed on the final invoice depending on the individual circumstances.
If a student needs to discontinue lessons just for the summer, there is no guarantee that a spot will be available when returning in the fall.
