Cancellations

It is the student’s responsibility to contact the teacher and the office if a lesson is to be missed. If a student must cancel a lesson, this must be done more than 24 hours before the lesson time or the lesson will be forfeited. The one exception to this rule is in the case of serious illness. If your student is ill, please do not bring them to lesson. Please call or email the office to let us know and a make up lesson will be scheduled.

If the teacher must cancel a lesson for any reason, a make up lesson time will be scheduled. Outside of illness, only one student-initiated make up lesson will be arranged per session. This will take place during the make up lesson week as needed. There are no make up lessons for group classes.

Withdrawal

Families who decide to withdraw from Selah private lessons mid-session are free to do so with a two week written notice. Notice must be made in writing to the Selah office. After the two week notice period passes, Selah will reimburse the family for the remainder of the session tuition on a prorated basis. The registration fee is non-refundable.

Group classes and ensembles are non-refundable after the third class.

Drop Off

Students under the age of 12 must be signed in at each lesson by a parent or guardian. Students must be picked up within 5 minutes of their lesson ending. Due to the tight schedule of each of our teachers, arriving late will shorten lessons. The teacher must end on time in order to begin the next lesson.
