    • Finally, let Schultz Strings know of your plans to discontinue
      • Payment will be required for next full payment due after lessons have discontinued
      • There will be no refunds of lessons paid in full
  • Tuition entitles a student to scheduled lessons. The full fee is paid whether or not the student attends all lessons and no credits or refunds will be given for student absences. Notification of inability to attend a lesson is appreciated but does not excuse payment for contracted lessons.
  • Inclement Weather: Individual lessons may be held depending on the ability of the teacher and the student to reach the Studio. Call Schultz Strings to be sure your teacher is available or to cancel your lesson if you cannot arrive safely. If you have properly notified your teacher, every attempt will be made to make up individual lessons missed due to weather.
  • If the teacher is absent, the lesson will be made up.
