Policy and Other Information

Policy - Piano lessons


  • COST PER LESSON $37 for half an hour, $52 for 45 minutes, and $65 for one hour. These rates apply from July 11,2021.

  • LESSONS and SCHOOL TERMS Lessons generally follow the school term, but this can vary depending on the student. I sometimes teach during school holidays and give details of this prior to the relevant period.

  • PAYMENT OF FEES Fees are pre-paid and usually cover a school term. Monies are to be paid, and in my account, by time of the first lesson of the term, or first lesson covered by the payment.

  • PAYMENT METHOD Payment is by direct bank transfer.

  • CANCELLATION OF LESSONS BY THE STUDENT FOR ANY REASON In these circumstances, I will provide one (1) makeup lesson per term at a suitable time, either during term or during the following school holidays.

  • CANCELLATION OF LESSON BY THE TEACHER If for any reason the teacher needs to cancel a lesson, a refund, makeup lesson, or future credit for that lesson will be given, so long as the student has pre-paid for that lesson.

  • SOCIAL DISTANCING - Social distancing will be observed. A parent or other adult is welcome to sit in on the lesson but it's preferable that only one other person attends with the student.

  • LESSON STARTING TIME Please arrive promptly at the arranged lesson time, as a full lesson’s duration cannot be guaranteed if you are late. However, if you are running late, please let me know.

  • IF A STUDENT DECIDES TO DISCONTINUE LESSONS All pre-paid lessons are non-refundable.


Other Information


  • BOOKS/TEACHING RESOURCES Various resources such as piano tutor books, other sheet music, theory books and computer files are usually required in lessons. The student or parent bears the cost of these resources. I may be able to provide assistance in purchasing these resources.

  • OTHER:

    • Please ensure that children are not left unattended before or after the lesson.

    • If the student is not well enough to come to the lesson, please notify me as soon as possible. I will be available for an online lesson using Zoom or similar during that lesson timeslot.

    • If you have any allergies or medical conditions I should be aware of, please let me know.

    • I am a Blue Card holder.
