Are my online transactions secure?
Yes - all financial information (credit card number, bank information, etc) is processed and stored by Paypal, not Musical Collaborations.
What is the cancellation policy?
Cancellations are possible up until 24 hours before the start of a lesson. There is no cancellation fee as long as the lesson is cancelled at least 24 hours in advance. If the lesson is cancelled less than 24 hours before the start of a lesson or the student misses a lesson without cancelling, the lesson fee is forfeited.
