Welcome to Rising Tones Music School. Please read these Terms and Conditions ("Terms", "Terms and Conditions") carefully before using the https://risingtonesmusic.com website ("Service") operated by Rising Tones Music School ("us", "we", or "our").

    Lesson Cancellation Policy

    Important Notification Method: To ensure efficient processing and to minimize administrative workload, all cancellations must be reported exclusively through our online form. Please use the following link for all cancellation notifications: RisingTonesMusic.com/notify. We do not accept cancellation notices via email, SMS, or any other communication method. Failure to use the designated form may result in the loss of eligibility for makeup lessons or credits.

    Cancellation by the Student:

    1. Notice Requirement: Cancellations must be notified at least 2 hours in advance via the designated "/notify" form to be eligible for a credit.
    2. Limit of Makeup Lessons: Students are entitled to up to TWO makeup lessons or equivalent credits within any 12-week period, provided cancellations are reported exclusively through the designated form.
    3. Mutual Exclusivity: Makeup lessons or credits are mutually exclusive. You can receive either a makeup lesson or a credit for a specific missed lesson when eligible, but not both.
    4. Excess Cancellations and No-Shows: More than two cancellations or any no-shows within a 12-week period, or notifications made less than 2 hours prior to the lesson time, will not be eligible for a credit or a makeup lesson.

    Cancellation by the Teacher:

    1. Teacher Unavailability: If a lesson is canceled due to the teacher's unavailability, students will be offered a makeup lesson or credit, which will not count against their two-credit quota.
    2. Public Holidays: Lessons canceled due to public holidays will be eligible for makeup lessons or credits and will not affect the student's credit quota.

    Extended Absences: If you anticipate being unavailable for more than 2 consecutive weeks (e.g., going overseas), please pause your membership at RisingTonesMusic.com/pause and specify the start and end dates. Note that 15 days written notice is required to pause your membership.

    Enforcement: Please note, using the designated "/notify" form is crucial for efficient processing and to ensure you receive the appropriate credits or makeup lessons. This method allows direct communication with teachers and accurate tracking of cancellations.
