FEES & ATTENDANCE
Course Fees paid by courses are non-transferable and abide by our own Cancellation & Refund Policy. Should there be any dispute, the language in our policy shall prevail. It can be found here. It is not normal policy for Sol Passion Music to initiate courses until full payment has been received.
It is the students’ responsibility to be on time and attend all scheduled sessions at Sol Passion Music. If the student is late, the teacher is not obligated to make up the extra time. Absence from a booked or otherwise scheduled session (or the number of sessions) will not give rise to any right of rescheduling or refund. If you are unable to attend a session for any reason, please let us know as far as possible in advance and if practicable we will use reasonable endeavours to provide to you the missed information.
LOCATION OF COURSES
Sol Passion Music courses are delivered in the Sol Passion Music Studio, 211/F, EIB Tower, 4-6 Morrison Hill Rd, Wan Chai Hong Kong, unless specifically stated otherwise (e.g. recording and mastering studios, visits offsite to places of interest, live sound venues etc). Please refer to individual course details on the website at the time of booking and ensure you confirm again shortly before the start of your course. Students must ensure that they have confirmed the location of their course in advance.
All premises are no smoking, and only students who are enrolled in a class are to be present to practice (Parents/Guardians excepted for students 16 and under at the request of the Parent/Guardian).
Any extra time required in the studios for practising purposes will always be confirmed by the General Manager of Sol Passion Music prior to completion, either as per a recommendation by the Students’ teacher or through the hiring of the room/equipment.
USE OF SOL PASSION MUSIC EQUIPMENT
Each student is responsible for ensuring that no Sol Passion Music equipment or property is damaged, lost or stolen as a direct or indirect result of their own action or failure to act appropriately. Each student is also responsible for the actions and omissions of any guests they invite on to the Sol Passion Music premises. In the event that any Sol Passion Music equipment or property is damaged, lost or stolen as a direct or indirect result of negligent action or failure to act appropriately by any student or guest, the student agrees to pay all reasonable costs in full (including without limitation for replacement or reparation) and Sol Passion Music has the right to terminate their enrollment without refunds.
For the avoidance of doubt, no Sol Passion Music property may be removed from the premises without the express prior consent of Sol Passion Music in every case.

Sol Passion Music reserves the right to suspend or expel any student deemed (by Sol Passion Music in its sole discretion) to be unsuitable and/or unacceptable through the students’ (or, where relevant, the student’s guests) conduct or attitude. In such cases, the student/s will not be entitled to any form of partial or full refund for lessons missed.
You may be required to verify your identification upon entry.
