Terms and Conditions: Virtual Lessons

Cancellation Policy for Virtual Lessons

Cancellations are not unlimited and per semester (14-18 lessons) we allow:

  • One 24+ hrs notice cancellation = no fees — This counts as anything booked off with more than 24hrs notice which could be weeks or even months in advance.
  • One emergency/sick cancellation = 50% fees — Sickness anytime under the 6hr notice all of the way up to 30mins prior to the lesson time. This includes suspected COVID symptoms, positive tests or related COVID isolations.


Any cancellations over and above the emergency/sick cancel or the one-time 24hr cancel will carry a 100% fee. The same policy will apply to our teachers via our “reverse cancellation policy”.

Our unique “reverse cancellation” policy:

In the rare event that a teacher needs to cancel a lesson, we will also be held to the same above fees. Clients will not pay for the lesson that was cancelled and on top of that, they will receive either a 50% or a 100% payment depending on how much notice was given.



Reschedules for in-home lessons are subject to availability and will also carry a 25% fee when done with less than 12hrs notice. Reschedules with more than 24hrs notice will not have a fee but will still be subject to availability. 

Tech Issues Policy

Virtual lessons can work very well and we have come up with some great techniques to be very effective with this method. However, we do need to have a good video and audio connection in order to conduct an effective lesson. It will be the responsibility of all students/clients to ensure they have a solid wifi or hardline connection. 


How to Cancel/Reschedule

We do not allow verbal cancellations or schedule changes. All cancellations must be done via:

  1. Email to: francis@goguitarlessons.com

  3. Texting our admin (Francis O’Keefe) at 613-315-9662  (more than 6hrs notice)

Last min Cancellations

For last-minute cancellations (under 6hrs) you will need to contact your teacher directly.
