CANCELATION POLICY - Group Lessons, Private Lessons or Ensembles

Please read the information below carefully. The information may be slightly different, depending on whether you are taking music lessons or are a member of a community ensemble for which you have paid to participate. All fees are expected to be paid in full IN ADVANCE before your first lesson or rehearsal. Refunds will be issued in full or in part according to the following conditions. Otherwise, assume there will be no refund.

If YOU need to cancel your registration:

  • You have one week prior to the first session to cancel, so that your seat can be given to another student.
  • If you cancel one week prior to the first session, you will be given a full refund of any fees paid.
  • Cancelations after one week before the first session will not be refunded.
  • If you are sick and cannot attend a session, please notify your teacher/ensemble director by email. But there will not be a refund.

If WE cancel a session due to inclement weather or for any other reason:

  • Lessons or rehearsals/performances will be cancelled only if the University of Toledo is closed for any reason or cancels classes during the time the event should have taken place. Please visit the UT home page or tune to local media for closing information.
  • If we cancel a music lesson, a refund of the value of 1 lesson will be issued for that lesson. No refunds will be issued for rehearsals. Any ensemble performances we cancel will be rescheduled.
  • If the teacher is unable to be at the lesson, we will provide a substitute teacher. If this cannot be done, a refund for the lesson will be issued for that class. 
  • If an ensemble director is unable to be present, the rehearsal will be cancelled for that date. No refunds.


A parental permission & emergency medical treatment consent is required. Please complete this form, and fax/mail with the participant's parent or guardian’s signature. Students under age 18 will NOT be admitted to the lesson or ensemble without a signed form.
