Policy and Other Information

Policy - Piano lessons


  • COST PER LESSON $36 for half an hour, $50 for 45 minutes, and $62 for one hour. These rates are current as of January 1, 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.

  • WHEN DO I PAY? Payments 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.

  • HOW DO I PAY? Payment is by direct bank transfer.

  • LESSON CANCELLATION DUE TO COLD/FLU-LIKE SYMPTOMS - If the student has any cold/flu-like symptoms, DO NOT COME TO THE LESSON. Please notify me as soon as possible. I will reschedule within the same term, or credit to next term, one lesson per term in these circumstances.

  • LESSON CANCELLATION WITH 24 HOURS NOTICE GIVEN - If a lesson needs to be cancelled by the student, please let me know at least 24 hours in advance. If this notice is given, I will endeavour to reschedule within the same term one lesson per term if a convenient timeslot can be found. If less than 24 hours notice is given, the lesson is forfeited.

  • WHAT IF THE TEACHER IS UNAVAILABLE FOR A LESSON? If for any reason the teacher needs to cancel a lesson, a refund, reschedule or future credit for that lesson will be given, so long as the student has pre-paid.

  • COVID-19 ARRANGEMENTS - It is preferable that only the student comes into the studio room and social distancing will be observed. If necessary, one adult/parent may attend as well. Please ensure that children are not left unattended before or after the lesson.

  • 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.

  • WHAT IF I DECIDE TO DISCONTINUE LESSONS? After having been notified of the discontinuation, all but one of the remaining term's lessons will be refunded. 


Other Information


  • WHAT ABOUT BOOKS? Piano tutor books, other sheet music or theory books are normally 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 feel free to discuss any issues or concerns with me via mobile or email. If I am teaching students when you call, I may not answer, but will get back to you ASAP.

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

    • I am a Blue Card holder.
