What You Pay For:
You pay for 30 music lessons per year, and we in turn provide you with up to 35 lessons. This is to ensure that incidents such as teacher absence will not affect your value for money or your child’s music tuition.
You will receive an invoice each term via post to remind you of your next payment.
