Lesson Policies


Students are expected to attend their lesson(s) each week. If you cannot attend a lesson, you must notify us at least 24 HOURS before the lesson begins. If you need to cancel a lesson on the same day it is scheduled we cannot give a make-up lesson, as we must still pay the teacher for their time. This includes cancellations for sickness, traffic, or other unexpected events. Short notice, or no notice, prevents instructors from scheduling students who are able to show.



All scheduling and changes must be made through the staff at the front counter of the store or via MindBody Online (NOT with your teacher). If the cancellation is received before the 24 HOUR deadline, you will receive a make-up lesson. Due to our limited space, make-up lessons for cancellations must be rescheduled within 90 days of the original cancellation. If Island Music cancels your lesson, you will receive a make-up lesson.



Island Music will not refund tuition for lessons cancelled by the student. Make-up lessons due to student cancellation CANNOT be used towards future tuition payments.



Contracts will automatically renew each month and will remain in effect until notice is given that the student no longer wishes to continue lessons. We require notice to be given before the 1st of the month.
