School Policy 


Private lessons consist of weekly, 30-minute or 60-minute sessions, and are given at Mike’s Guitar World (MGW), located at 2264 E. Route 66 Glendora, CA 91740. More than one lesson a week can be scheduled and may be beneficial for students, especially during summer or other school breaks. Discuss availability of additional lessons with your instructor. Group lessons and camps are periodically available


Payment is due the last week of each month for the upcoming month, regardless of whether a lesson is scheduled that week. A one-time registration fee of $10.00 will be charged for all new students joining MGW. The registration fee will be waived with enrollment in autopay. All tuition matters should be dealt with through the MGW office, not your instructor.


All checks must be made to Mike’s Guitar World. There will be a $30.00 fee for returned checks. Tuition payments not received the last week of each month for the upcoming month will be subject to a late fee of $10.00 each past due week. If tuition is still past due by the second week, lessons will be temporarily suspended until tuition is paid in full. All tuition is non-refundable. Opportunities for make-up lessons and substitutions are available (see attendance).

* There are no refunds on tuition.

Attendance & Make-up Lessons

All payments must be received, regardless of student attendance. This is necessary because the instructor reserves the student’s time slot each week. If a student cannot attend a lesson, the instructor will arrange a make-up lesson.


The student should contact the instructor directly, a minimum of 48 hours in advance of their scheduled lesson time. If proper notice is not given, a make-up cannot be guaranteed. Please consult your instructor directly for any lesson date/time changes. Make-up lessons will be offered during times the instructor has available and must be completed within 3 months of cancellation or will be forfeited.

Instructors have the right to send students home if they arrive sick to their lesson. If your child is sick, please inform your instructor as soon as possible and request a make-up lesson. Make-up lessons with less than 48 hour notice are up to instructor’s discretion. If a student cancels a scheduled make-up lesson, that lesson will be forfeited. There are no make-ups for cancelled make-up lessons.

A minimum of 2 weeks’ notice and signed withdrawal form is required to stop lessons. If proper notice is not given, Mike’s Guitar World reserves the right to invoice and/or process payment for the month in question.

Late Arrivals

Lessons begin promptly at the scheduled lesson time. Students should arrive a few minutes early if possible. Late arrivals will result in the student losing part of their lesson time, due to the fact that many instructors have lessons booked back to back.


The following holidays are observed by all instructors and Mike’s Guitar World will be closed on the following days: Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Halloween, and Thanksgiving Weekend (Thurs-Sun). MGW will also be closed December 24th through January 1st for winter break. Lessons that fall on any of these dates/holidays will not be made-up by your instructors since tuition is not increased on 5 week months.
