Technique & Artistry provides a personalized subscription service that allows members to access piano pedagogy videos, images, and musical scores (“Technique & Artistry content”) streamed over the Internet to certain Internet-connected computers and other devices (“Technique & Artistry ready devices”).
- Your Technique & Artistry membership will continue month-to-month or year-to-year, depending on your billing choice, and automatically renew until terminated. To use the Technique & Artistry service you must have Internet access and a Technique & Artistry ready device and provide us with one or more Payment Methods. “Payment Method” means a current, valid, accepted method of payment, as may be updated from time to time. You must cancel your membership before it renews each month in order to avoid billing of the next month’s membership fees to your Payment Method (see “Cancellation” below).

- Members invited to the Technique & Artistry through the StudentLink™ feature are not eligible for a free trial.
- All Technique & Artistry membership trials beginning before August 1st, 2018 will enjoy extended trial access until August 15th.
- Free trial eligibility is determined by Dovetree at its sole discretion and we may limit eligibility or duration to prevent free trial abuse. We reserve the right to revoke the free trial and put your account on hold in the event that we determine that you are not eligible. Members of households with an existing or recent Technique & Artistry membership are not eligible. We may use information such as device ID, method of payment or an account email address used with an existing or recent Technique & Artistry membership to determine eligibility. For combinations with other offers, restrictions may apply.
- We will charge your Payment Method for your monthly or annual membership fee, depending on your billing choice, at the end of the free trial period and your membership will automatically renew monthly or annually unless you cancel your membership prior to the end of the free trial period.
