These terms and conditions supersede all previous terms and will commence from 1st September 2018 until further notice. The music school will remain open for 45 weeks a year.
AS Music School Terms and Conditions from September 2018
There are 42 teaching weeks in the year and three catch-up weeks / weeks for extra lessons.
All direct debit students will be entitled to 42 lessons per year to be taken during the weeks when we are open.
If centre students require extra lessons at any point they will be able to buy a “3- Lesson Bundle” by arrangement with their tutor.
Where appropriate, lessons may be taken in advance; for example in the run up to exams, or before a long, scheduled absence and time taken off in lieu afterwards.
If lessons are missed without us receiving at least 24 hours’ notice they will be charged for.
Where we receive more than 24 hours’ notice, the tutor will rearrange the lesson wherever possible in order to catch up as soon as possible. This will be at the tutor's convenience and is subject to their availability.
Rearranged lessons may be arranged with the student’s usual tutor or with another available tutor.
Please note that tutors will do what they can to help students catch up lessons but in the case of a student falling more than 3 lessons behind it will probably not be possible to catch every lesson up.
Add-on lessons such as band classes, musicianship etc. will also run for 42 lessons of the year.
It is not normally possible to rearrange these lessons and lack of attendance of these, or of any other group classes, will not be reimbursed.
Fortnightly students will be eligible to receive 21 lessons during the year with the same terms.
In the event of a direct debit student wishing to leave AS Music School we require one month’s written notice by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We must be informed of your intentions to leave the music school by 1st of the previous month to the month in which you wish to leave. [For example; if a student wishes to leave from the beginning of October, we must be told in writing by 1st September.]
Blocks of lessons are purchased in advance in 10 week blocks.
Block payers will receive a reminder in advance telling them their renewal date. Failure to renew by the due date may result in their lesson slot being lost.
Block Payments are not eligible for any discounts or refunds if a student decides to leave part way through a block of lessons.
Lessons may be rearranged with 24+ hours’ notice, lessons with -24 hours’ notice will be charged for.
