Terms & Conditions

Cancellation Policy:

* If a student misses or cancels a lesson/class or removes him/herself from tuition, regrettably Voiceworks Studio cannot refund or reschedule to a later date. If a teacher needs to cancel a lesson, students will be provided with a substitute teacher or the lesson/class will be rescheduled to a later date. The teacher will endeavour to agree the alternative date and time for any missed lesson directly with the student where possible but the decision of the teacher as to when the re-scheduled lessons and classes will take place is final.

*Students are expected to attend classes punctually. Teachers are not obliged to make up time in the event that a student is late for class.

Fee payment:

* Tuition fees MUST be paid on a full or half term basis and must be paid in advance of the first lesson. The failure to ensure that tuition fees are paid prior to commencement of the first lesson may result in suspension of classes and tuition until the account has been settled.
