Cancellation Policy

Rivington Music (also referred to on this page as RMRS) operates on a 48 hour notice for all cancellations or reschedules. RMRS does not issue monetary refunds (see bellow for booking errors or mistakes).

Requests for cancellation or booking changes with more than 48 hours notice will be issued a house credit for the same value, so the client can rebook their rehearsal at their convenience. *Credits expire 180 days from date of issue.*

For cancellation made with less than 48 hours notice no credit will be issued, and there will be no possibility of reschedule, including rehearsals booked on the same day.

Credits are redeemed on our BOOK A STUDIO page. No credit will be issued for a session booked using a credit.
