Overview
Musician Makers provides in-home and online music lessons facilitated by professionally trained instructors. Our administrative team is dedicated to ensuring a seamless lesson experience and top-notch customer service.

 

Communication
Please direct all inquiries to our administrative team. Contact us via email at hello@musicianmakerslessons.com, or by calling or texting (904) 373-8646.

 

Email Policy
Email is our primary method for communication and billing. By signing up for lessons, you agree to receive and open emails from Musician Makers to stay updated on lesson schedules and important announcements. 

Invoicing

Invoices are issued at the start of each month as a prepayment for scheduled lessons. Payments are made through the student portal, where you can save your payment method to streamline monthly payments or enable auto-pay to ensure timely payments and avoid late fees. Please note that the total amount due each month may vary due to holidays, teacher cancellations, and months with five weeks. You are charged based on the number of lessons scheduled for that month, not a flat monthly rate.

Teachers & Lessons in the Home
All teachers undergo a rigorous background check and training. An adult over 18 must be present during in-home lessons. If the teacher arrives and no adult is present, the lesson will not be given, and you will be charged in full. Our teachers will wait up to 10 minutes for an adult to arrive or for the student to arrive if you are tardy. After 10 minutes they will leave, and you will be charged in full. 

Lesson length

Lessons are 30 minutes or 60 minutes. You can stack multiple 30 minute or 60 minute lessons in the same home. We do not offer 45 minute lessons.

Cancellation and Makeup Lesson Policy

Cancellation Policy

  • Lessons cancelled with correct notice will receive a makeup credit for a makeup lesson. A minimum of 2 hours notice is required to receive a makeup credit. If you do not provide 2 + hours notice for cancelling your lesson, you will not receive a makeup credit unless it is an emergency *See Below * 

    • What defines an emergency? Read our FAQ here ... ​

  • If you cancel a lesson due to sickness with less than 2 hours notice, you will receive a makeup credit. 

  • Teacher Cancellations: If a teacher cancels a lesson, your account will be credited with a discount equal to the monetary value of that lesson. This effectively serves as a refund and will carry forward as a positive balance, reducing your next bill.

  • Studio Cancellations: Studio closures follow the St. Johns County school schedule. When the school is closed due to holidays or other reasons, we are also closed. You will not be charged for these canceled lessons, and your account will be credited with a discount equal to the value of the lesson. For up-to-date information, please check our calendar: Musician Makers Calendar.

  • If you cancel a makeup lesson, you do not receive a makeup credit back. If you cancel it due to an emergency, you will receive a refund. 

Makeup Lesson Policy

  • Issuance of Makeup Credits: Makeup credits are issued when a lesson is canceled with 2+hours notice of the lesson or in case of emergency on the day of the lesson. This can be done through the student portal or if you inform our admin team via email or text, who will then mark it off.

  • Use of Makeup Credits: Credits can be used on designated makeup days within 30 days from the date of issuance. The 30-day validity period starts from the moment the lesson is canceled. You can view your total number of makeup credits by logging into your account and visiting the attendance and notes section to track how many days remain for each credit. 

  • Make up slots are added to the calendar weeks ahead in the future, and we update that weekly so it is always 30 days ahead. This way, there are always plenty of make up slots for you to use your credits before they expire. During summer months, we will extend the make up days even further out. 

  • Makeup lessons must be scheduled at least 72 hours in advance. 

  • Expiration of Credits: Unused credits expire 30 days after issuance and will not be refunded or applied to future lessons.

  • Teacher Makeup Cancellation: If a teacher cancels a scheduled makeup lesson, your account will be credited with the monetary value of that lesson or lessons, ensuring you are refunded rather than issued a new makeup credit.

  • Please note that makeup lessons may be subject to cancellation or time changes due to drive times and logistical considerations. In the event that we need to cancel a makeup lesson for these reasons, you will receive a refund for the lesson, as we will add a monetary discount to your account equal to the value of the lesson. 

 

Payment Methods
Auto-pay is recommended to streamline the payment process. Manual credit card payments can be made through the student portal.

Late Fees
Invoices are due upon receipt. Payments delayed by more than 14 days will incur a $15 late fee

Subscription Cancellation Policy

If you decide to cancel your subscription with Musician Makers, you have two options:

Cancel Immediately:

You will receive a refund for any prepaid positive balance, which includes future regular lessons or credits from previous studio or teacher cancellations.
Any scheduled makeup lessons will be removed from the schedule, and you will not receive a credit or redeem the value for those makeups.
All makeup credits will be forfeited.


Finish the Month:

You can continue your lessons and use any saved-up makeup credits within the remaining time of the current month.
You can take any scheduled makeup lessons during the current month, thereby redeeming their value.
At the end of the month, all remaining makeup credits will be forfeited, and any future makeup lessons will be canceled.
If you still have a positive balance from teacher cancellations at the end of the month, you will be refunded that amount.
Important Note: To prevent misuse, if you schedule makeup lessons beyond the current month after deciding to cancel, we will manually remove those lessons from the schedule and notify you via email that this is not allowed under the cancellation policy.

Refunds

Refunds are available upon request. If you cancel your subscription and have a remaining balance, you have two options:

 

1. Retain Balance: Keep the balance on your account for future lessons.

2. Request a Refund: Submit a refund request within 90 days of your subscription ending.

 

Please note that refund requests made after 90 days from the end of your subscription cannot be processed.
