Terms & Conditions

Individual Music Tuition is offered on the following terms and conditions:

Time & Place of Lessons

All lessons will take place at the LES Music School and will be at a time agreed with the teacher and school; this may vary from week to week according to the rota system.

Fees & Charges

Fees will be charged at the current rate for 10 lessons in the autumn and spring terms, and are to be paid in arrears and will appear as part of the school fees bill. Fees for the summer term will be adjusted according to the number of lessons actually scheduled as there will be between 24 and 34 lessons delivered during the course of the year depending on how the teacher’s timetable has fitted into the schools’ schedules.  Additional costs (e.g. sheet music ordered on behalf of your son/daughter, accompanist’s charges, etc) will also be added to your school fees bill.  The schools reserve the right to suspend lessons in the event of non-payment by the due date.

Lessons Missed

Lessons missed through a pupil’s non-attendance will be charged.  Should a lesson have to be cancelled by the teacher, the school will arrange to carry that lesson forward to a later date or to credit the appropriate fee.

Notice to Increase Fees

The fees will be reviewed from time to time and may be increased by such amount as the governors consider necessary and reasonable.  We shall endeavour to give at least a term’s notice of any increases in the fees due for a particular term and in any event shall give you notice of any such increases not later than the final day of the preceding term.

Practice between lessons

Whilst the teacher will make every reasonable effort to improve the knowledge and ability of the pupil, pupils are expected to cooperate with the teacher and to adhere to the sessions of practice advised by the teacher. Parents/Guardians are asked to assist in this by signing the Practice Book (where appropriate), and to take on a supportive, encouraging role in the long process of learning to play a musical instrument.

Examinations

The pupil will be entered for public music examinations only with the consent of the teacher and parent/guardian.  Pupils are strongly recommended to attend aural lessons during the two terms prior to an examination.  These are currently available in the Music School.

Notice to Discontinue

Lessons may only be stopped at the end of a term.  Notice to discontinue lessons must be given in writing (which includes email) to the Music Manager by the beginning of the half-term holiday of the term at the end of which you wish the lessons to cease.  Notice given any later than this will be deemed to apply to the following term.

For example, to stop lessons at the end of the autumn term, written notice must have reached the Music School office no later than Friday 13 October 2017 otherwise notice must be served until end of the Spring term 2018. You will receive written confirmation to acknowledge when music lessons will cease. If you do not receive a letter within 2 weeks of giving notice, please contact the Music School.

During Study Leave, when pupils are not required on site, we will assume that they will not attend instrumental lessons. However, pupils may opt in for lessons as and when they can attend.
