Annual Music Lessons Booking Info

Booking Process for Annual lesson bookings:

This booking option ensures regular and committed lessons with more flexibility for eventual changes. The fee will be slightly lower to reflect the longer commitment and less administration time on my part. Also, monthly payment may be easier to budget than the termly lump sum requested for termly payments.

 

The Financial Set-Up

  • The contract is in linked to the dates of the academic year, from September until August the following year. For other starting dates the contract of the first year will be r adapted to finish in the following August. 

  • A usual contract will start in September each year, the start of the academic year and run until August. The average number of lessons is 34 for weekly lessons - this will be negotiated individually.

  • The total fee will be divided into 12 equal payments, taken via 11 direct debit regularly once a month, the first payment consists of two shares, as deposit in case of a cancellation.

  • A discount of approximately 3% will be applied to the total amount payable.

  • If you need to cancel the contract early, a 5-week notice period will be required. Also, an administration fee of £10 will be charged and the discount of approximately 3% has to be refunded.

 

Lesson Management:

  • A regular day and time for lessons will be agreed in advance as before. Individual classes can be changed, or cancelled and made up later and this applies to both the student and teacher.

  • For any changes made a minimum period of 24 hour notice will be required, except in the case of illness when a cancellation can be made on the same day. All changes must be in writing via SMS/WhatsApp or email, even if already agreed over the phone.

  • If a student does not turn up to a class without apology or an agreed change, the class will be marked as completed and be lost.

  • Teaching will still take place during term time on a weekly basis. The number of classes included in the contract will be one or two less than most students have each year allowing a little more flexibility. At the end of each term a statement of the completed lessons will be sent out.

  • In addition, there will be a shared google doc with lesson notes and completed dates.

  • Outstanding lessons can be made up at any time during the year including holidays periods and on occasion as online lessons.

  • Lessons must be completed within the duration of the contract and cannot be transferred to the following year. Both teacher and student have the responsibility to plan ahead accordingly and ensure that all lessons are completed.
