PRICING & POLICIES
A MESSAGE FROM JUSTIN
“I care more about LMC than any career, job, or gig I’ve ever had. This is my priority in life. This is my pride. I’m not generally a person who is hard headed about rules and regulations, but I do understand what can be lost from carelessness and gained from attention to detail. I view this as a guide to providing the safest and best experience from LMC and I ask that you do too. Keep learning, keep sharing."
~Justin Hucker (Owner/Operator)

NO DRUGS OR ALCOHOL
This may sound obvious, but it is the most important policy and applies to everyone, including students, family, friends, teachers, etc. While attending LMC, our students are expected to be safe, learn, and act appropriately. Use of drugs and/or alcohol is prohibited and may result in immediate expulsion.
Whether at the school, performing a gig, or attending an LMC event, we teach and expect our students to treat LMC staff, students, and audience members with respect. Each student has a responsibility to represent LMC, their families, and themselves to the best of their ability.
SOCIAL MEDIA & ADVERTISING
LMC assumes permission to use images of the students and their first names on Social Media, YouTube and the LMC website. If you do not wish for LMC to use your (or your child’s) image for promotion and/or advertising please contact Justin we'll make sure not to. *This is non-negotiable for bands as it's a necessity for bands to promote.
EXPLICIT LYRICAL CONTENT
As everyone knows, music is about expression. Though LMC is very careful about letting students pick songs that are age appropriate, some songs chosen may contain questionable lyrics. In these instances, LMC teaches the students to be creative and alter the lyrics to fit the environment & audience. Every now and then we ask that our students be allowed to bend the rules of appropriate societal views and express themselves or stay true to the original meaning of the song. If you wish for any lyrics to be altered let us know ahead of time and we will do our best to adhere.
COMMITMENTS OF BEING IN A BAND
When joining a band the student and the parents should take a moment to consider the commitments of being in a group. It’s important to realize that the choices you make and how you may handle situations can and will affect, not only LMC or the venue, but more importantly the other kids in the band. If the student is unable to fulfill his duties as a band member, he/she/they may have to be removed from their band. LMC does not prefer to take this route so please consider and discuss this before joining a band. These commitments include but are not limited to:
· Being at rehearsals & gigs on time and ready to play
· Learning songs in full and to the best of your ability
· Positive representation of the band and LMC
· Giving proper notice before any absenteeism
· Accepting other personalities, beliefs, and life structures
MISUSE OF EQUIPMENT
LMC is aware that wear & tear is a very normal thing for music gear used by multiple students on a daily basis. We understand that accidents happen and that blame cannot rest solely on the last person using gear when it breaks. We will not expect restitution for accidents, however, we expect all students to treat the equipment with respect. If something breaks due to misuse / abuse (ie – hitting drums in a destructive manner, turning knobs past their stopping point, yanking wires or cables, throwing gear, etc) you will immediately be asked to leave the studio. Food and drinks are not allowed on or around the equipment.
REFUNDS, HOLIDAYS, & MAKEUP LESSONS
LMC does have a “No Refunds” Policy, however we will always provide a makeup lesson for any missed lessons as long as they fit the criteria. Any exceptions to this policy will be addressed on a case by case basis by Justin. Rehearsals will not be made up and will not receive makeup lessons unless it’s canceled by LMC. Though the school is open for most holidays with a few exceptions, there will be makeups for them. The holidays LMC will be closed are Easter, Independence Day, Thanksgiving & Christmas. Below are examples of what warrants a makeup and what does not.
Students will receive makeups if:
· 24 hour notice is given prior to the lesson
· The lesson or rehearsal was canceled by LMC
· With some notice, it’s a special circumstance or an emergency
Students will not receive makeups if:
· They are a “no call / no show”
· They give less than 24 hours notice of absence
· They have to leave early / arrive late
