Policy

 

INSTRUMENT

Piano students must own a piano or keyboard to use for regular practice. Violin and cello students must own an instrument or can hire one from various places including KBB Music Store, Rock Shop, or the Stringed Instrument Company. Instrument hire is not included in our services but the teachers can assist in finding an instrument for the student.

CANCELLATION

If the student cancels a lesson, fees must be paid in full if less than 12 hours notice is given before the arranged lesson time. Teachers reserve the right to cancel lessons, and will try to organise a make-up session for the student.

LEARNING RESOURCES

Students must purchase resources such as learning books, music stands, rosin and whatever else may be necessary for the student’s learning. Please discuss with the teacher at the start of lessons.

PRACTICE

We expect our students to practice on a regular basis (recommended everyday) as this is vital in the student’s progress in their instrument. Younger students are given specific practice routines in their homework book, and older students are expected to complete a certain amount of practice every week.

CONTRACT

We reserve the right to dismiss students if they do not attend lessons regularly, fail to practice to a certain standard, or misbehave significantly in lessons.
