PLEASE NOTE: you are responsible for the monthly/quarterly charges until you decide to cancel your membership. This is regardless of how much or how little you use or access HarmonicaLessons.com. Your monthly/quarterly membership may be cancelled at any time before the end of the current billing period, but it is your responsibility to do so. If you do not cancel before the beginning of the next billing period, you will be charged for the next month or quarter billing. You can cancel your membership at anytime by logging into the Members Area and then visiting your personal "Manage Your Membership" page. If you have any problems with cancellation, please contact us before the next billing period and we will be glad to help.

  • There are NO refunds for recurring subscriptions or yearly memberships- Regardless of how much that you do or don't use your monthly or quarterly or year membership, there are NO refunds or partial refunds for current or past subscription periods.

As stated in the paragraph above, you are responsible for payments until you cancel your subscription.
