Terms & Conditions

Please take a moment to review our Terms & conditions of service

Lesson Cancellation Policy

Our Lessons run year-round, and the continued progress of our students and invested time of our instructors is very important to Rockingham Music Academy.

If you need to cancel a lesson, please give at least 24 hours notice before the session start time to our booking team.  With 24 hours notice, you are eligible for a makeup lesson (see the definition of a makeup lesson below).

Students with a weekly booking are allowed 2 cancellations per twelve week cycle (term). One of which can be “last minute” (before 11am on the lesson day, or before 7am for Saturday morning bookings) and the other requires a minimum 24 hours notice.

Rock Band and Ensemble members must provide at least 24 hours notice for a cancellation and a makeup will only be provided if the rehearsal does not happen due to members absence.

Notice of a Cancellation must be made directly to a member of our Bookings Team at the reception desk or by phone/text at 0458 256 055 – please note that telling your instructor is NOT sufficient.

If Rockingham Music Academy cancels a lesson for any reason, for example if your instructor is sick and unable to be substituted, we will notify you as soon as possible and you will be eligible for a makeup lesson.

Makeup lessons

1. Lessons cancelled at least 24 hours ahead will receive a makeup lesson.
Typically, makeup lessons take place at an alternate time or day within a fortnight or during the week after the term ends.

2. You can not reschedule a make up lesson.

3. Makeup lessons will be scheduled to suit the teacher’s timetables.

4. Only 2 makeup lessons can be given in every 12 week block.

5. If your instructor is not able to make a lesson:
     a) We will makeup the lesson or organize another teacher
     b) Makeup lessons are treated as regular lessons

6. Lesson fees are not refundable so please make sure you are able to complete lessons you have paid for.


General Conditions
