Terms and conditions

My terms and conditions are all about making the studio sustainable, but I’m a pretty reasonable person and if, for whatever reason, something here doesn’t work for you – let me know.

You can choose your lesson frequency, a.k.a. “block”

A “block” is a number of lessons per week over a chosen number of weeks. For example, the most common lesson frequency is one half hour lesson per week during school terms. Other examples include:
– a one hour lesson per week, agreed for 4 weeks at a time;
– a half hour lesson twice a week, agreed for 4 weeks at a time… etc.
There is no obligation to continue lessons after each block.

You will need to pay in advance

Lessons are paid in advance of each block or at the first lesson of a block. Payment can be made by cash or direct deposit.

Missing lessons and arriving after our agreed time

Once paid, there is is no mandate to attend all lessons in a block. The payment reserves the lesson time for you, and of course I hope that you come!
I ask that as a general courtesy you give as much notice as possible if you can’t make a lesson, or are running late.  If you arrive late to your lesson, the agreed
finishing time still applies.

Your fee reserves your time for you

I don’t refund missed lessons and I don’t provide make-up lessons.  If I am sick or unable to teach, I will return the lesson’s payment to you via bank transfer.
