Lesson Policies at Hub Guitar

Revised September 4 2017

Monthly Tuition Plan

Monthly Fees. 30-minute lessons are $75 each, or students may pay a monthly fee of $159 for four 30-minute lessons per month (a 47% savings). Monthly lessons are contingent upon the makeup policies.

Monthly Tuition. Payment for monthly tuition payment is due 7 days prior to the first day of the month where lessons will take place. On the first day of each month, the tuition charges for that month will be debited automatically from the credit or debit card provided by the student.

Pay-As-You-Go Option

Pay-as-you-go. Students may use our private lesson scheduling to pay for and book a 30-minute lesson at any time. The current rate per 30-minute lesson is $75, or $99 for a 60-minute lesson. The same cancellation/makeup policy applies; students are responsible for attending the lesson.

Missed lessons, canceled lesson, and unenrolling

Makeup Lessons. Because requests for makeup lessons impose a substantial burden on a teachers' ability to make good use of their teaching hours, limit time available for other students and (in many cases) require that the teacher work extra hours, makeup lessons must be strictly limited. Hower, makeups are sometimes available within the following circumstances:

Notice required:

  • Lesson cancelled with less than 24 hours notice: no makeup will be offered.
  • Notice given between 24 hours - 14 days: You may attempt to find a makeup on hubguitar.fullslate.com from 7 days before the lesson until 24 hours before. If you are able to find a time, you may reschedule it once. If no time is available (or no time suits you), you will forfeit the lesson.
  • More than 14 days notice given in writing via our easy online form. A makeup will be provided.

Teacher cancellation. If your teacher cancels, we will attempt to provide a substitute. If we are unable to provide a substitute, you are entitled to partial monthly credit or a makeup.

Un-enrolling. Monthly students may cancel enrollment at any time; however, no refunds can be issued for any unattended lessons, and the notice to cancel must be made at least 7 days prior to the beginning of the month. Please let us know if you will stop taking lessons; if you do not provide 7 days notice, you will be billed for the upcoming month. This cancellation can be done any time by filling out a 2-minute form at this page.

Special scheduling circumstances

5-week months. Tuition rate is for four lessons per month. Since some months have an “extra” day, occasionally there will be a “no lessons” day. Check the calendar or ask your teacher for details.

Holidays. We will attempt to schedule around public holidays, preferably by using the 5-week month trick (see above); if not possible, a makeup will be offered if your lesson falls on a holiday.

Snow days. If a state of emergency is declared or if public transportation is closed due to weather, we may cancel lessons to ensure the safety of our students and teachers. Lessons canceled due to weather are subject to the aforementioned makeup policy; makeup lessons are offered by the discretion of the instructor and are not guaranteed. Of course, in the event that this happens we will make every possible good-faith effort to ensure a makeup.


Tuition increases. Each January, we will reassess whether to raise tuition rates and make adjustments as necessary, increasing tuition by either the 12-month CPI change, or 5%.

Parents of children under 18. The safety of your child is important to us. We choose our instructors using a rigorous selection process including a criminal background check. In order for us all to feel safe & comfortable, please accompany your child into the lesson room during the lesson.

Information Privacy Policy: Photos, videos or recordings that we take of you may be used for educational purposes and/or promotional purposes on the web. Your privacy is very important to us, and we will honor all requests to keep the aforementioned information private.
