Cancellation, Withdrawal, & Refund Policy

STUDENT CANCELLATIONS

The Sonanta School of Guitar has a strict 24-hour cancellation policy. Lessons cancelled within 24 hours will be forfeited and no refund will be issued for the missed lesson. Exceptions will be made for emergencies & holidays. Excused lessons that are not made up within 30 days will be forfeited and may not be refunded. Students prepaying for 5-week sessions who withdraw will be refunded for any lessons not attended so long as the withdrawal occurs more than 24 hours prior to a lesson.

 

TEACHER CANCELLATIONS

Sonanta instructors are active performers and may have to cancel a lesson in order to perform. Students are usually given at least 48 hours notice if a teacher needs to cancel, but, on rare occasion a cancellation may occur within 24-hours. If your teacher cancels your lesson you may reschedule that lesson at your earliest convenience. 

Improvement Expectations

The Sonanta School of Guitar and its affiliated teachers teach effective practice strategies so that students can improve quickly and correctly. Recommended practice times vary per student (e.g., 30 minutes/day to 4 hours/day for 3-6 days/wk) but the most important element for improvement is consistency in practice (i.e., 3-6 days/wk). Improvement is not an overnight process nor will it happen if you only practice once or twice a week. Guitar is a challenging instrument that requires patience, consistent practice, precision, relaxation, and a lot of concentration. The Sonanta School of Guitar cannot guarantee results if proper practice strategies are not followed.

Injury Policy

The Sonanta School of Guitar and its affiliated teachers stress practice strategies and techniques focused on preventing injury. We cannot stress enough how important it is to play with as much relaxation as possible in your hands, fingers, arms, wrists, body, etc.. We stress maintaining the most natural posture possible while practicing and performing, taking frequent breaks, and NOT over-practicing. Pushing your body far beyond its natural limits almost always guarantees injuries. It is of utmost importance that each student listen to his or her body for signs of stress, pain, and/or fatigue when playing/practicing and to stop playing immediately at any of these signs even if the recommended or desired practice time has not been reached. It is the student's responsibility to listen to his or her own body and to follow the Sonanta teacher's instruction regarding injury prevention and relaxation strategies. Neither the Sonanta School of Guitar nor its teachers shall be held responsible for any student's repetitive stress or guitar related injuries.

Anti-Discrimination & Anti-Hate Policy

It is the policy of the Sonanta School of Guitar and its teachers not to engage in discrimination, hate, bigotry, or harassment against any person because of race, color, religion, sex, pregnancy, disability, national origin, citizenship status, ancestry, age, genetic information, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or status as a protected veteran, and to comply with all federal and state nondiscrimination actions, orders, and regulations.

The Sonanta School of Guitar and its affiliated teachers reserve the right to discontinue lessons immediately and permanently with any and all students who promote, attempt to promote, or are suspected of promoting, discriminatory and/or hate messages as stated above.
