Will I get a refund if there was bad Internet connection and I was unable to have a successful lesson?

Yes, if it's your first lesson and you have a bad experience for any reason, we will refund your money. We do encourage you to test your set-up before each music lesson, in the interest of saving your teacher any difficulty in the case of a bad connection. We find that tutors and students are typically very willing to reschedule and try it again as that's always an option.
