What should I do if my student needs to stop taking lessons?

Find out whether they’re just taking a break.

Some students pause their lessons and intend to resume after a break. Other students may want to stop taking lessons entirely. When you learn your student wants to stop taking lessons, chat with them about whether they plan to resume their lessons later.

If your student is just taking a break...  

If a student is taking a temporary break, keep them on your roster, but remove their future scheduled lessons from the calendar.

  • Your student won’t be billed while they are away
  • Their time slot will be open for another student
  • Any remaining unused credits will be held on their account, to schedule when they are ready to start lessons again.

 Cancel future scheduled lessons

  1. To cancel lessons from your computer, Log in to your teacher account at TakeLessons.com, and open your Calendar tab.


  1. Scroll to the date that your student’s break will begin. Click on the first lesson that should be canceled.

  1. Click Cancel Lesson.


  1. Click This and all following lessons to remove all lessons in this timeslot.

(If your student has more than one recurring schedule, you will have to repeat this process for each one. See: What is a Recurring Schedule?)


If your student wants to stop lessons entirely...

If your student would like to discontinue lessons and does not plan to resume at a future date, remove them from your roster and notify TakeLessons to follow up regarding any remaining unused lesson credits.
