When you enroll in a course, you are getting a permission to view the online course via our web site: www.learndarbuka.sonikapercussion.com.

However, we reserve the right to revoke any access and use courses at any point in time in the event where we decide or are obligated to disable access to a course at any point in time due to legal or commercial reasons.


You agree to pay the fees for courses that you purchase, and you authorize us to charge your debit or credit card or process other means of payment for those fees. Sonika Percussion works with third party payment processing partners to offer you the most convenient payment methods and to keep your payment information secure.
