Fluteland.com offers a range of copyrighted online material that includes video lesson material, text and multimedia learning content and tools.

Fluteland.com also enables the connection between consumers seeking instruction or teaching ("Students") and Teachers offering to provide music instruction services ("Teachers"). Fluteland.com provides a database of Teachers through the Site from which the Student can seek instruction in all areas of music education covered by Fluteland.com Teachers.

Student agrees not to hold Fluteland.com (or Fluteland.com's agents or employees) liable for any instruction, advice or services delivered which originated through the Site.

Online Transactions

Once Student has accepted the terms of the advice or service and payment has been made to Fluteland.com, there is a binding contract implicit between the Student and Fluteland.com. Fluteland.com reserves the right to suspend privileges to any Teacher or Student not adhering to the policies of the Site.

Billing and Payment Policy

Students are obligated to pay the Fluteland.com membership fee in full prior to using Fluteland.com services. This fee is non-refundable and covers the period specified.

Students are obligated to pay the teacher's lesson in full upon registering for that music lesson. Teacher's minimum billing rate is $50 per hour. Fluteland.com will charge Student's credit card according to the agreed upon fee between Student and Teacher, and Fluteland.com will accept payment on behalf of the Teacher. Fluteland.com will notify Student of the amount designated by Fluteland.com to be charged to Student's credit card.

Refund and Cancellation Policy and Rescheduling Policy

There are no refunds issued for the membership fee. Once payment is accepted, the student gains access to Fluteland.com services for the specified time period. Due to the nature of material (downloadable video material and lesson plans), we are not able to offer any refunds. The student will continue to have access to Fluteland.com resources until the expiration of the paid period/contract.

Student is allowed to make up to three changes to each of his/her scheduled private lessons up to 48 hours before the actual lesson. The changes may be either to reschedule or to cancel the lesson. Upon rescheduling, no credit card transaction will occur. Upon cancellation, the entire amount charged will be refunded to the Student's credit card. The processing of the refund will take between 2 and 4 weeks.
