Ending lessons or taking a break, notification must be given in writing to the office on or before the 4th lesson to ensure no charges/late fees are applied. CREDITED In the event of taking a break after the drum session has been paid, payment can only be credited to a future drum session upon the students return within a Full Session ONLY(8 weeks). This can only be applied to a complete drum session and if no lessons were rendered(if you have not had a lesson of the new session). We cannot split up a 4 week drum session, Taking a break midway through the session will result in forfeited lessons and no credit can be given.
Lesson "Absence" *
LESSON “ABSENCE”: Out of courtesy, students/parents should notify the office of any absence for any reason. However, this does not exempt the student from payment. There will be no makeup lessons for any drummers absence. DSA is committed to pay the instructor for the time you have scheduled; therefore this policy is strictly enforced. // We are working hard at obtaining DSA Drum Lesson Videos for missed lessons.
Communication *
