Can I get a refund or transfer into a different course?

All refund requests must be made via email to [email protected]. All refunds are subject to a fifty dollar USD ($50.00 USD) processing fee, and all refunds can take up to thirty (30) days to process.

Requests made anytime after registration and before 7 days of the start of the first class will receive a 75% refund of the total cost of the course or program.

Requests made within 7 days prior to the beginning of the first class and before the beginning of the second class will receive a 50% refund of the total cost of the course or program.

Any and all refund requests made after the beginning of the first class for a particular course are non-refundable.

Due to small class sizes and a limited amount of space we are unable to offer transfers or holds on any courses or workshops.


SCHEDULING

What is your Holiday schedule?

We are closed for Memorial Day, Veterans Day, Labor Day, Independence Day, Thanksgiving weekend (Thurs-Sun), and from Christmas Eve through New Years Day.

What if I need to change my schedule once I enroll?

Please notify our Admissions office ([email protected]) to discuss possible transfers or holds on any courses.


What if my schedule changes after my course starts?

Please notify our Admissions office to discuss possible transfers or holds on any courses.


What happens if I miss a class?

We recommend you do your best to make all of our classes. That said, you can always catch up on the in-class material through a private, make-up lesson for a discounted $75 per hour (we recommend a 2 hour lesson). We will need to make arrangements to have your lesson before next day’s class so you can stay on track. 

If you cancel, change or miss your appointment with less than 24 hours notice for a private lesson or a makeup class, you will be charged the full amount for the missed appointment or class.
