Please read our lesson policies and FAQ’s below.  Then print, sign and return our Student Autopay Form before your lesson.

When Do I Pay My Lesson Fees?
All lessons are pre-paid on a monthly basis with payment being due at your last paid lesson of the month. (The
first month’s payment is due at the time of registration.)
If you have a credit due to illness your next month’s lesson fees will be prorated but payment will still be due at
the end of the current month.
Important Note: Teachers will not be present if the lesson is not prepaid.
How Do I Pay For Lessons?
We offer two ways to pay:
– Automatic debit, where the monthly fees are charged automatically to your credit card on the 1st day of each
month. Automatic debit requires a 7-day cancellation notice if you decide to discontinue lessons.
– We have a drop-box in our waiting room where students can leave a check for the next month’s lessons.

Can I Pay Per-Lesson?
Yes. However, students who prefer to pay per lesson will not be able to have a regular time slot and must
schedule and pay for appointment at least 7 days in advance.
What if I Need to Miss A Lesson?
– As long as you give the store 24 hours notice you can schedule a makeup or receive a credit if a make-up is
not available.
– Only one credit is allowed per month. Credits are only good for 30 days from the original paid date.
– If you cancel the same day as your lesson or do not show for any reason no refunds or credits will be
given.(In case of emergency or sudden illness, one same-day notification is allowed in an 8 week period)
What about vacations and holidays?
If a student knows they will be absent for a lesson, that month’s fees will be pro-rated at the time payment is
due. Please see our lesson calendar for holiday closings. Lesson fees for months that have a holiday will be
prorated.
What if there is bad weather?
If lessons are cancelled due to inclement weather your payment will carry over to the following week. Stacy’s
does not always close when schools are closed and will notify students only if lessons are canceled. Students
who are unable to attend scheduled lessons due to inclement weather may request a make-up lesson if they
notify the store at least one hour before their lesson time.
Who do I talk to about all of the above?
Please call Stacy’s at (434) 974-1555 with any questions about your lessons. Do not ask your teacher about
scheduling, payment or other administrative issues. They love to teach and that’s all we can ask of them.
Liability Waiver
Stacy’s is not responsible for supervising students at any time. Young students should not be left alone at the
store for extended periods of time before or after their lesson. We cannot be held responsible for items left in
the lesson rooms.

 Frequently Asked Questions

Can I pay for my lessons in the store?

We only accept in-store payments at the time of registration.

 

What if there are 5 lesson times in a month?

Some months there are five lesson times.  This lesson is a free lesson and is not part of our monthly tuition. You will be scheduled to show up at your regular time.  Because our tuition is based on a 4 week month this lesson time will not be prorated or rescheduled in months where it falls on a holiday or a teacher absence.  We only prorate tuition if you will be receiving less than 4 lessons in any given month.

 

What if I know I am going to miss some lessons?

That’s ok, just let us know and we can either reschedule them for you, or you can pay our “Per Lesson” fee of $35 for the weeks you are able to come.  This will reserve your slot even for the weeks you will miss.

 

What if my lesson time falls on a holiday?

If your lesson time falls on a holiday, and it is not a 5 week month, we will pro-rate the month for you.

 

Can I pay per-lesson or come every other week?

Yes. However, the lessons still need to be prepaid by a week and the rate for this is $35 per lesson.  You will also not be able to reserve a regular time slot. 

 

Who do I call to cancel or schedule my lesson?

Always, always, always contact the store.  You can call us 7 days a week or email us 24 hours a day.  Never notify your teacher.  If you notify your teacher and they fail to tell us you could lose the ability to schedule a make-up.

 

Do you give refunds for missed lessons?

Stacy’s does not give refunds for missed lessons.

 

What if I want to stop lessons?

If you just want to stop for a little while please let us know and we can sometimes put your lessons on hold.  If you plan to stop for an extended period of time please try to give us at least 2 weeks notice so we can notify the teacher and make sure you are not billed for the next month.
