We have a cancellation policy for therapy sessions and lessons. We feel that your time as well as ours is valuable. Because of this, we see clients only on an appointment basis, so that we can minimize the amount of time spent in the waiting area. Missed appointments interfere with our ability to see clients in a timely manner. We have worked out the following guidelines to minimize the problem. We request 24 hour notice when appointments are changed or cancelled. We recognize unexpected problems arise, but most scheduling conflicts are resolved with one day's advanced notice. A charge will be made for broken appointments without 24 hour notice. You will be billed for the fee to cover your missed appointment. Unfortunately the bill cannot be sent to an outside provider. You will be directly responsible for the $35 fee. In case of inclement weather you can call 610-344-7030 PA or 973-661-2060 NJ and listen to a recorded message or check our Facebook Page.

Tempo! believes that quality standards must be established, monitored, and evaluated to insure quality services are provided and standards are met and/or exceeded. We accomplish this by periodically asking clients to complete client satisfaction surveys as well as monitoring treatment standards against the CBMT (Certification Board for Music Therapists) and the AMTA (American Music Therapy Association) standards and code of ethics. Tempo's staff participates in clinical staff meetings and supervision as well as regularly attending and presenting at conferences.

If you are aware that you or your child has symptoms of a communicable illness virus, or if you are aware that you or your child has been exposed to a communicable illness or virus, we err on the side of caution and ask that you do not bring them into our studios. We err on the side of caution to keep our instruments and our environment clean and safe for all, including the staff. If you or your child has had a fever or diarrhea, please be symptom free for 24 hours before returning to class. If you or your child are not feeling quite like normal, PLEASE reschedule your class or session. We have children in class who are at many different stages of oral development and taste testing is what they do. Please help us keep the germs out as best we can. Thanks in advance understanding!
P.S. Feel free to use the hand sanitizer in our studios!
If a check is returned for any reason there will be a $10 fee.
