THE SMALL PRINT

24 hours of cancellation of private lessons must be given otherwise the lesson fee is applied.

1 taster lesson at regular price, thereafter, lessons must be paid for in advance in blocks of 5 or 10.

The student must have a keyboard or piano at home to practice on for piano lessons.

Regular practice in between lessons is assumed as progress cannot happen without this.
