If you are unable to attend your scheduled lesson then the lesson will be done by video. Vera will send you a video of the things you will be practicing during the week and you will send a video back to show the work you have done. That way you keep your regular time slot and your progress.
Discontinuation of Lessons
When you want to come off the weekly lesson schedule then you just give one billing cycle’s notice.
Once you have made payment for your upcoming month, no refunds can be given. The commitment and preparation for those lessons have already been made by the teacher.
Vacations and breaks
There are no lessons for 2 weeks over Christmas and New Year. In addition, students are able to take another 4 weeks at any time during the year and still maintain their place.
