Cancellation Procedures for new students as of August 2015:
At Musicians In Motion, we value both teachers and students, and make every attempt to be fair to everyone involved in the lessons. Some students allow for unlimited make up lessons and/or credits for missed lessons, but we feel this is not fair to the teacher's time, and it usually is a hinderance to the student's progress. When a student misses a lesson, they tend to not practice as they should. It's just human nature. When they return to their lesson the next week, they will just be reviewing the lesson from two week's prior. They will not get new material until the third week, which means they've basically lost three weeks. We feel this is not conducive to a continual learning experience that you are expecting and paying for. The solution? Lessonmate. This is a program that allows the teacher to send you an assignment with video included during the normal lesson time that you are missing. If you are out of the country or sick that day, you will get an assignment so that the student continues progressing until their next lesson because they have something new to work towards rather than just reviewing the old assignment. If ever you can't make a lesson for any reason, you can cancel ANY time for ANY reason, and get your Lessonmate lesson assignment sent to you on the lesson day. Lessonmate is free to you and easy to use. Alternatively, Skype can also be used so long as the student is over 18 or a parent is sitting in on the lesson. If you have any questions, let us know and we'd be happy to help.
We do require all new students to be put on auto-draft which saves you from forgetting to pay and incurring a late fee. We require 30-days notice to stop lessons at which time we would take you off the auto-bill. To sign up, please call us at 704-315-5261 or click the link below.
