Lesson Policies



We believe that learning to play a musical instrument is one of the most enriching experiences you can have. Policies have been put in place to maximize the lessons' enjoyment for you and your instructor:


Each lesson is a half-hour, on the same day and time every week with the same teacher.

All scheduling or changes to your scheduled lesson are done through an Allegro Music front desk team member via phone or email. Changes CANNOT be made directly with your teacher.

Lesson Rates

For current rates, see our Lessons home page. No taxes. No registration fee.

One hour lessons can be arranged for intermediate and advanced students.


We bill at the end of the month for lessons taken during that month. You may pay by debit or credit card. For your convenience, we can keep your credit card on file and automatically process your monthly payment.

Student Cancellations

When you sign up for lessons, you are reserving the teacher’s time. Please understand that our cancellation policy is in place to ensure that your instructor can maintain a consistent schedule.

We require 24 HOURS NOTICE to cancel for ANY reason. Failure to notify us within 24 hours is a late cancellation, and you are expected to pay for the lesson.

There are no in-store lessons on New Year’s Day (Jan 1), Family Day (Feb), Good Friday and Easter Sunday (Apr), Victoria Day (May), Canada Day (July 1), Terry Fox Day (Aug), Labour Day (Sep), Thanksgiving (Oct), Christmas Day (Dec 25).

We respect major religious holidays. If you observe religious holidays resulting in a missed lesson, please inform us when signing up for lessons.

Stopping Lessons

If you decide to terminate lessons, we require one week’s notice.

Teacher Absences

If your teacher is unable to attend a lesson, one of our qualified instructors will substitute.

Student Responsibilities

  • Attendance is crucial to learn to play an instrument successfully. Commit to your weekly lesson.

  • Bring your own instrument to the lesson (except for keyboard and drums).

  • Bring your method book(s) and dictation book.

  • Arrive at your lesson on time. Students who arrive late do not receive the benefits of an entire lesson.

  • Do NOT eat, drink, or chew gum in the in-store lesson waiting room or studios.

  • Have fun making music. Keep a positive attitude.

  • Practice daily! Eventually, you will no longer feel like you are "practicing" -- you'll be playing because you love it!

Parent Responsibilities

The parent’s attitude and involvement are vital to a child’s success in music.

  • Your child must practise without interruption and attend lessons regularly. Good habits encourage success, and well-placed praise helps them continue.

  • Children learn valuable lessons in perseverance, self-discipline, and time management. If your child encounters difficulties learning or practicing, please let your instructor know. Communication is essential, and the instructors are committed to helping their students and parents.

  • Encourage your child to participate in music classes, choir, band, or orchestra at school. These are wonderful opportunities for them to sharpen their musical skills and learn teamwork.

  • Expose your child to a variety of musical experiences. Listen to music together at home, attend concerts, music festivals, and participate in community music events.

  • Provide your child with regular opportunities to play music with and for family and friends in a relaxed setting.
