Private Lessons & Courses Policies:

Lessons Time Policy: Lesson time begins typically within 5 minutes of my arrival and once we are set up.

Lesson Cancellation/ Rescheduling Policy: I try to be extremely flexible with all of my students. For this reason I only ask you give me at least 1 hour notice if you are in need of canceling or rescheduling a lesson. If you are unable to do so please be aware that your lesson time may be reduced accordingly resulting in some projects not being completed before the end of your course.

Lesson Packages: Please note, if you purchased a course or lesson package and wish to discontinue lessons before using your full lesson credit you will be refunded the unused portion based off the regular hourly rate, not the course or package rate. Purchased Courses & Lesson Time Packages expire 6 months after the purchase date.
