These services entirely depends up on the availability of guitars in inventory, availability of additional conveyance, additional person to deliver etc and at the sole discretion of Guitarmonk. These service needs are served on the allotted days of class only with seven days advanced request.
- COURSE TENURE POLICY – Guitarmonk’s trainers are qualified and professional to complete the program in stipulated time always. They have also undergone stringent training (guitar teacher training) so that they teach you content/topic within required time.
- TENURE EXTENSION POLICY – However, considering yearly festivals, national, gazette holidays or any unavoidable reason by guitarmonk as mentioned/informed to you by guitarmonk, students are allowed with some laxity and extensions (varies program to program). You can also ask for the updated/prevailing extensions to a program (if any) for the current year. Students are advised to complete their program in the given tenure via regular presence. No extension is allowed nor should be assumed for any program unless specifically mentioned (as in written by the guitarmonk). Even if in case the management approves privilege of extension then student has to pay the fee for the additional number of months/classes (as lump-sum) plus batch transfer fee applicable at that time (refer below).
- COURSE COMPLETION – by the teacher is based on the student’s capacity to go along with the program.
- TRANSFER TO ONLINE LEARNING – Guitarmonk charges subsidized fee from students in batch learning unlike one-o-one learning. There are also some certain cases where batches don’t get formed or breaks in between due to any circumstance beyond our control. In such case, guitarmonk doesn’t charge high fee from remaining student/s so as to meet the cost rather provide the same learning under the same fee as Live Interactive Online Learning wherein the teacher is teaching to the student as Live. Although it costs us minimum Rs. 1000 to Rs. 2500 per class but no extra fee will be chargeable from the student in this case. This practice is ensured for the benefit of the student so as to initiate the learning without delay.
- EXTENSION OF PROGRAM’S POLICY ABOVE LAXITY PERIOD | EXTRA CHARGES – If a student is extending the program after laxity period due to absence or any other reason (as for maintaining the touch-base with the environment or want to revise the topic/s) then student will have to pay extra fee for the months above their tenure (as per the program & the fee applicable at that time).
- BATCH/BRANCH SHIFT POLICY – As per the policy, batch shift is limited to only under critical circumstance/emergency situation (sickness, accident etc where a person is psychologically or physically unfit to attend/perceive the class). In case of batch shifting student is offered to choose from the ongoing and preceding batches from a particular session happening at other centers in the city. The decision of a particular batch is decided with the guidance of the mentor and is the sole discretion of guitarmonk. The batch shift will be provided based on the student’s technical gap, any missed topic/s, concept/s or re-start his/her entire sessions.
Batch/Branch Shift Application (Form) & Extension Charges – Student needs to fill the batch shift application form and pay Rs. 3600/- as the batch shifting charge. (Download Batch Shift application form from website or ask it through email from email@example.com).
In addition to the above charges, In case the batch shift is giving additional sessions/classes to the students or is crossing the assigned tenure of the program student registered at, then student need to pay the additional fee as lump-sum calculated based on the total number of additional months/sessions.
Philosophy of Batch Shifting – is an additional support facility and not a mandatory service of guitarmonk – Dear student, it is vital for you to understand the importance of this facility. Guitarmonk as one of India’s leading guitar specialty brand, was able to bring this solution & took this unique step to push & help sincere students who lose their opportunity & time due to any reasonable reason. Batch shift is an optional/courtesy service of guitarmonk to help its sincere students. Please note that this is not a part of your program & must not be understood as a formal/official duty/contract of guitarmonk nor Guitarmonk is accountable to guarantee the batch shift for every student. Guitarmonk reserves the right to discontinue this service, as per the discretion, at any point of time, without any prior notice.
- ABSENTEEISM BY THE TEACHER & NON-REPORTING TO GUITARMONK BY THE STUDENT IMPLIES STUDENT’S ACCEPTANCE TO THE SLOWER PACE & LESSER CLASSES – Sometimes student and teacher maintain personal understanding with each other and adjust schedule of classes as per their convenience and priorities. They commit holidays on mutual understanding and don’t report to guitarmonk about their absenteeism and keep guitarmonk out of touch about the weekly pace of the classes. In such a case the course moves slower than the actual pace of learning. Student later come to guitarmonk to adjust the missed classes by the teacher, of previous months. In such a case, guitarmonk will not be responsible to deliver those classes which were not reported on time (on or before the day of the class) by the student. When a student ignores or don’t report the absenteeism of a particular session by the teacher (either on their mutual understanding or otherwise), it means the student is comfortable and agree to the lost session, in such a case that session will be counted. It is important to note that guitarmonk cannot deliver more than allotted sessions per month and cannot extend the tenure beyond the extension period.
- NO PERSONAL, VERBAL, INDIVIDUAL ACCOUNTABILITY IS VALID FOR YOUR PROGRAM OTHER THAN OFFICIAL COMMITMENTS – Guitarmonk will only entertain commitment served in written (i.e. through email/prints).

The installment cheques are considered as ‘deferred’ payment. The student is admitted on the grounds of his 100% interest, commitment and agreement of payment for the relative program whether he/she continues or not.Late payment/delay in Installment – It is the student’s duty to inform guitarmonk for any late date payment which will be accompanied by a late payment charge of Rs. 1000 and maximum extension time limit of 14 days. Failure to pay installment after 14 days will automatically cancel your registration and hence all schemes/discounts/gifts/offers/customizations (if any) offered to the student need to be returned/given back to guitarmonk on an immediate basis.

- MUSICAL CONCEPTS VS PLAYING TUNES – Technical concept and grammar is the foundation of any musical phrase/melody and this is what the right musical education tries to deliver. Guitarmonk education also tries to edify the same musical concept through various tunes. It is not the quantity of musical tunes that matters but the music concepts. The teacher sets the foundation to make you adaptive of plethora of tunes of same level. It is the student’s responsibility to must cover all these remaining tunes as their home-work/ assignments and show to their teacher. Furthermore, the understanding given to students are their life-time content and repertoire which they have to build and keep developing through these concepts, on their own, in subsequent years.
Please note that not all tunes need to be covered by the teacher. The tunes are meant for your personal practice, your performance repertoire for any platform or stage be it School, College or Office. The overall objective of these tunes is to establish concept of scales (or particular scale) on guitar.

- MORE CONTENT FOR BRILLIANT STUDENTS – Teacher will help with more content and additional tunes to good practiced students to quench their knowledge thirst & enrich their musical joy.
BATCH GUIDELINES FOR STUDENTS
- STUDENT TEACHER RELATIONSHIP – See it as Student & Teacher rather Customer & Company/Business relationship – Customer can decide what he knows but not a student or client as they don’t know the subject, that’s why Mentor is your judge. Trust and surrender for best outcome. Maintain respect, value and trust.
- OBEY TEACHER’S DIRECTION – Let the mentor drive you as he is the best for your growth decision. Give him freedom and space to bring you on the task, listen to him/her & let them indulge you in Guitar.
- AVOID ABSENTEEISM – Avoid Absence in class and if in case you are absent, discuss notes with class mates. Also refer Guitarmonk’s Forum to fine-tune some of the base-building topics.
- AVOID REPETITION (ASK YOUR BATCH-MATES) – Don’t discuss repetitive topics with teacher to hinder class momentum. In case you have problem with any of the topics then discuss it with your batch mates or request teacher to conduct a problem-solving session for the batch.
- BATCH OBJECTIVE OVER INDIVIDUAL OBJECTIVE – Please note that a specific content learning is not possible in a batch but only module learning as we have to maintain batch ethics and respect every student playing. So go along with content of the class
- INDEPENDENT CHOICE REPERTOIRE PROGRAM – Don’t expect it as a Personal Song/Repertoire Program else you will hinder your growth.
- Follow content of the program as guided to you by the teacher. It will teach you many tunes but it primarily focus on your development at that level. You should ask guitarmonk for Independent Choice Repertoire Programs separately or register for next level program if you are passionate and sincere for more learning as Ragas on Guitar, Bollywood Guitaring, Diploma in Guitar, Launch Me etc
- DO YOU HAVE HIGH LEVEL & PROFESSIONAL TARGETS? – Complete Guitar Knowledge Program (a constructive and complete development) is a logical development of several levels. You should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to know more about it.
YOUR GUITAR LEARNING IS IN YOUR HANDS | BLUNDERS THAT MAKE STUDENT FAIL
- WHAT DISTURBS THE CLASS SPEED?
- MISSING NOTES/NOTATIONS – Many Students take snap shots of class content in their mobile but they don’t ever write their notes. They are looking for other’s copies during classes and are completely oblivion of previous class/s contents.
- MISSING PRACTICE – Not referring or practicing what’s done in their last class and expecting teacher to either repeat or not extend the class, stops the Module completion. Many students don’t touch guitar for a week time after their previous class.
- COMPLETELY FORGETFUL OF TOPICS – Keeping no summary and no revision of topics. Keeping no practice and memory/record of same tunes they themselves practiced in last class/es.
- NOT ATTENDING CLASSES – And expecting complete module’s knowledge in remaining classes and time, is impossible.
EXPECTING A HIGHER LEVEL REPERTOIRE THAT DOESN’T FORM PART OF YOUR MODULE OR LEVEL – is expecting to make sentences without complete Alphabets Knowledge. Students who are unable to perform or render Prelude & Grade -1 tune cannot go for any Repertoire Module.
- NOT ATTENDING CLASSES – And expecting complete module’s knowledge in remaining classes and time, is impossible.
- LACK OF PATIENCE AND CONSISTENCY – Not able to withstand exercises or technical development part but focusing on final entertainment/result is expecting to eat good food without enough cooking effort.
- SEEING CLASS AS AN ENTERTAINMENT RATHER PARTICIPATION & LEARNING – Student should participate mentally and physically in
the class. Don’t think your teacher as a mere entertainer. Participation is a student’s responsibility. Please don’t see your guitar class as watching movies or seeing guitar performance or any spa activity.
- SEEING CLASS AS AN ENTERTAINMENT RATHER PARTICIPATION & LEARNING – Student should participate mentally and physically in
- SEE PROGRAM AS DEVELOPMENT OF MUSIC MATURITY – Clearly see program as a development of music maturity and not collection of
tunes, exercises and theory. It’s a practice and stamina game just like swimming, workouts and it’s also a mental development just like Chess.
You have to be in the process. You have to work as a participant, as a performer and not audience. You have to learn it, do it and not just see it as an attendant. Comprehend things rather just take note of it in copy. Do practice, confirm doubts. Have fun and relish. This is all music about..!
- NOT PRACTICING AS PER THE PRACTICING CHART – Students should practice as per the practice schedule given by the teacher which includes balancing warm ups + chords + leads as per teacher’s guidance.
- DON’T INDULGE TEACHER IN TUNING YOUR GUITAR OR CHANGING YOUR STRING SET – You should Get Your Personal Tuner – Don’t ask teacher before or after the class to tune your guitar. Teacher can always show courtesy but this is not a proper and right way to do as it consumes lot of time of the quality class (for e.g. if a student takes 3-5 minutes of teacher for tuning a guitar then for 10 students it would waste at least half an hour of the class).
- STRING SET CHANGE – If you want to get your guitar strings changed then contact email@example.com. Guitarmonk guitar doctors will assist you to the best in doing this.
Guitarmonk reserves the right to change any of its terms, policies, fees, content, structure, any service etc as per its discretion i.e. without giving any prior information. By applying to any of our program/service you acknowledge & agree to the corresponding terms & guidelines to that service.
In case you don’t agree to any of the aforesaid terms please don’t register for the program.
We wish you all the best in your learning.
Love and Regards
