Monthly Lesson Program:

Once you are signed up for lessons online you will be scheduled for a regular weekly lesson. Lessons are once a week. Bi-weekly lessons are no longer offered after 2:30pm due to the demand of those lesson times. It is your responsibility to show up on time and prepared.

FAME follows the CCSD School Calendar for closures. Our office remains open M-Th 3-6pm except on bank holidays. Monthly students are not offered lessons when school is closed. Lesson rate remains the same each month, you are not charged more when there are 5 lessons, you are not charged less when there are 3 lessons, etc.

Please note that in the event of a teacher emergency, the studio has the right to bring a sub in for your lesson at no notice to you. Make-ups are not guaranteed for student absences, so please work with your teacher to schedule a time that works for you. If you give up your monthly lesson time, we cannot guarantee the same time when you return. If you miss a lesson, your teacher will send you lesson materials. 

Weather: In the event that the studio closes for severe weather, video lessons will be uploaded to your Teacher Zone account. 

A la carte: Your weekly lesson time is not guaranteed and must be scheduled each week based on teacher’s availability. Payment is due at booking. You are allowed one reschedule if given 24 hours notice.


PLEASE TAKE NOTE Your lesson time is your lesson time whether you are there or not, so please respect the appointment time. If you are unable to commit to a monthly lesson time/payment, please consider our a la carte option and schedule your lesson each week.

Payment is due at booking. A 24-hour cancellation notice is required for all lessons. If notice is not give with that time, no makeup lesson will be given. Any time a scheduled lesson doesn't occur (holiday, teacher absence, student absence) and notice is provided, teachers will provide either a live or recorded video lesson for the student.  Refunds will not be offered.

Two or more unexcused lesson cancellations within 6 months may result in loss of guaranteed lesson time. Please take your lesson time seriously. Cancellations must be received via e-mail.​


Studio communication will go through e-mail or Teacher Zone. It is important for us to have everything written down so we can always reference any changes in schedule or cancellations.
