>TIME & PLACE OF LESSONS:
The timetables are scheduled by the school's 表演艺术 administrator, Mrs Pearce. Lessons are strategically timetabled to ensure that all students' lessons work around their prior commitments such as trips, exams/tests and appointments. In return, we request 最低 的1周通知 任何 这就需要改变以课次进行。紧急请求，该部门要求 48小时 notice. Failure to comply with these terms could result in us being unable to reschedule or refund the lesson. All timetables clearly state the room the lesson is held in; this may vary from week to week according to the rota system and it is important to note that lessons may fall outside of school hours. Our rotation system enables a fair system for all students and we endeavour to avoid students missing the same curriculum lessons each week.
We endeavour to avoid using after school slots however, due to numbers of students, early closures and peripatetic teacher availability, occasionally lessons may have to fall outside of the school day. If your child is already committed to something after school, they 将 either have to forfeit their lesson or their other commitment.

If payment is not received by this date we cannot guarantee lesson availability and we are unable to refund the amount for the number of weeks missed.
>NOTICE TO INCREASE FEES:
The fees 将 be reviewed from time to time by the governors and may be increased by a reasonable amount, taking into consideration financial demands on the school as necessary. We shall give notice of 任何 amendments to the tuition fees in advance of the next term.
The School is concerned that families who are genuinely experiencing financial difficulty should not be denied access to music tuition. The governors charging policy allows free lessons for those who are eligible for pupil premium. If this applies, please indicate this on the online tuition application form. 学费 is restricted to one skill for a 15 minute lesson.

学习 a musical instrument is a long process which takes time, discipline and dedication. Whilst our teachers make every reasonable effort to improve the knowledge and ability of the students, they are expected to cooperate with the teacher and to adhere to the sessions of practice advised by the teacher. 父母/Carers are asked to take on a supportive, encouraging role in the long journey of learning to play a musical instrument.
Students will be recommended by their teachers to be put forward for a public examination. Entry 将 be made once the consent and payment have been returned by parents or carers. 学生们 are strongly recommended to attend aural lessons provided by our staff prior to an examination, in order to meet the demands of the examination.
All candidates (with the exception of pianists and percussionists) will require an accompanist in the examination, for which there is an individual fee. The fee covers a rehearsal and the exam time itself. Some teachers like to accomp任何 their own pupils or we can arrange the services of the school's accompanist; the fee payable is the same regardless. Details of the fees 将 be issued on the application.
