Terms Of Business

  • Fees should be paid half-termly in advance by internet banking - please ask for details.  Parents will be billed at the beginning of each half-term and payment is due by the second week of the session.
     

  • Lessons are available during school term time only.  Specific dates for the year can be found on the home page of my website.
     

  • The first half-term is regarded as a trial period at the end of which lessons may be discontinued by either party without notice.  After this trial period however, a minimum of four weeks notice is required, or payment thereof in lieu.

  • Fees must be paid when pupils are absent for any reason, including illness.
    The only exception to this is when taking annual holidays with parents, when adequate notice should be given.  If there is a prolonged period of absence due to illness, the fee for two weeks only will be charged, however long the period may be.
     

  • If a pupil is already receiving lessons from another teacher on the same instrument, i.e. at school, these must cease before lessons commence with me.  This is to avoid any confusion or frustration caused by having two teachers for the same instrument at the same time.  It does not exclude pupils from taking part in any group activities at school or elsewhere such as orchestras etc.
