updatedMar 4: Due to our busy schedules, we can longer accept wedding couples with weddings prior to Apr 4, 2014.

Cancellation Policy: Once you've booked a private lesson, you must cancel by 2:00pm two business days before your lesson to avoid a cancellation charge. For example, if you lesson is booked on Sat, you must cancel by Thurs 2pm. If you cancel after the time limit or don't show up, you must pay a $25 cancellation charge. Even if you booked a lesson for the next day, it is too late to cancel so you are obligated to show up or pay $25. Because of this policy, you must pay an additional $25 that will be used as credit toward your next/final lesson. If you decide not to continue with additional lessons, that $25 will be returned to you.
