By Student

Lesson fees include ALL lessons, even in the case of cancellation, illness, forgotten lessons, all “no-shows” and P.D. Days. This missed lesson policy is standard and in conformity with the guidelines prescribed by the Ontario Registered Music Teachers Association.

Students are allowed one (1) cancellation make-up lesson per semester. Teachers are not obligated to make up any additional cancellations during that semester.

Make-up lessons must be made up within 14 days of the cancellation. The lesson is forfeited if student doesn't show up for the make-up lesson. Please note that we do not apply credit towards future tuition.

If a student is late for his/her lesson, the lost time will not be made up or refunded.

By Teacher
Lesson(s) that are missed due to a teacher's illness or professional obligations will either be taught by a qualified substitute or rescheduled by the teacher.

Missed Group Lessons
Homework assignments will be made available to parents and students from the teacher for missed group lessons. Missed group lessons will not be refunded or rescheduled unless the school or the instructor cancelled the class. KW School of Music reserves the right to cancel any group classes that do not have sufficient enrolment. A full refund will be issued in that event (two students can continue with “semi-private” lessons).
