Terms and Conditions

Singing lessons

Terms and Conditions

You can either:

(a) Book a regular slot, weekly or fortnightly.

(b) Arrange lessons on an ad-hoc basis.

Option (a):

I would ask you to commit to attending (or paying for) a minimum number of lessons in the term. I would advise term dates in advance, which would usually encompass 14-15 weeks. I would therefore require a commitment for a minimum of 12 sessions for a weekly session and 6 sessions for a fortnightly session. This gives some flexibility for missing sessions, e.g for holiday, half-term, illness etc. In some circumstances I may be able to rearrange a regular lesson slot, but only if I can easily accommodate it into my schedule and it doesn’t inconvenience another singer. If you do need to miss a session, I would appreciate a full weeks’ notice however as long as you pay for the minimum number of sessions in the term then I can accommodate short notice cancellations, e.g due to illness, without needing to charge. Any non-attendance without notice, ie due to forgetting, will be charged.

Within option (a) you can pay for twelve (if weekly) or six (if fortnightly) sessions in advance at the beginning of the term, for the reduced rate of £38 per hour or alternatively you can pay £40 per hour each lesson. Any additional sessions within the term, or outside of term time, can be paid at £38 at the time of the lesson. For 45 minute lessons, the discounted rate would be £28.50 and the standard rate would be £30. I am unable to offer a discount for 30 minute lessons.

In the event that you are not able to attend the minimum specified lessons per term at your regular slot and it is not mutually convenient to catch up missed sessions, then the missed sessions will still be charged.

In the event that I need to cancel any sessions, this will be subtracted from your minimum commitment and refunds will be given where necessary.

Option (b):

There will be some lesson times available for ad-hoc bookings, which will be payable at £40 per hour, £30 for 45 minutes or £20 for 30 minutes. No discounted rates available for this arrangement.

Cancellation terms would apply as follows:

  • Cancellation with 7 days’ notice or more – no charge applies.
  • Cancellation between 7 days’ notice and 2 days’ notice (48 hours) – a £10 cancellation charge will apply.
  • Cancellation between 48 hours’ notice and 24 hours’ notice – 50% lesson fee payable
  • Cancellation with less than 24 hours’ notice – 100% lesson fee is payable.

Unfortunately, cancellation charges will apply in all circumstances, including illness, losing singing voice etc.

Thank you for your understanding.

I will email ahead of each term to define the ‘term dates’ – however, I may well be available for lessons outside the term dates, e.g in summer holidays. If so, the discount given in Option (a) would be extendable to additional sessions booked outside of the core lessons. However, the standard cancellation terms would apply.
