Students are required to purchase their own instruments and music tutors can provide advice where required.


If a student cannot attend his/her lesson due to illness, school excursions, extra-curricular activities, or medical appointments, tutors require at least 48 hours' notice via text message or email in order to reschedule the lesson or offer a ‘make-up lesson'. Otherwise, the lesson will be forfeited. It is not sufficient for the student to mention that they may be absent for a lesson the previous week.


To discontinue lessons, parents must request the withdrawal of their child by Week 8 of the previous term, otherwise, the full tuition fee for the term must be paid.
