-Lessons are to be paid in full before your first lesson. Payment for the following month is expected by the last lesson of the previous month. For example: If you plan to take lessons in July, your July payment will be due on the final lesson day in June.
EVEN FOR DAYS THAT ARE PLANNED ABSENCES IT IS REQUIRED TO PAY FOR THE FULL MONTH. THIS RESERVES YOUR TIME AND DAY.
-Any lessons that are missed by the instructor will either be rescheduled or substituted by a qualified lesson instructor. If none is possible you will be refunded for that specific lesson.
-If the student is late for their scheduled lesson they will not receive the full 30 minutes. Their lesson time will be decreased by the amount of time in minutes they are late.
-Any lessons missed or canceled by the student can be made-up on the 5th lesson of a given month that has 5 lesson days if applicable. It is possible, however not guaranteed, that lessons missed or canceled by the student can be rescheduled. This will be subject to our lesson instructor and schedule availability. Lessons missed or canceled by the student will not be credited and will not be refunded, and unless available by JAMS to be rescheduled, you will lose that lesson for the week. For rescheduled lessons a substitute teacher may be provided based on scheduling and availability. Again, unless otherwise communicated by a JAMS representative in writing, any lesson missed by the student will be considered forfeited for that week.
-In the case of inclement weather, as determined by school cancellation of Jackson R-II School District, the lesson will be cancelled with either an option to reschedule or a refund/credit for that specific lesson. If you have not been contacted by a JAMS representative, consider the lesson to be scheduled as normal.
