Terms and conditions

If I offer a free trial lesson it will be for beginner students only. I’m happy to accept a second lesson pay as you go. Other initial lessons are to be paid at my normal rates.

If you are happy to commit after these initial 2 lessons, payment for each half term period is to be made in advance at the start of that half term to ensure the continuity of classes.  This will reserve your time/s for that half term period.

24 hours’ notice is required for a missed class or that lesson’s credit will be lost – this will be at my discretion in exceptional circumstances.   I will do my best but cannot guarantee to reschedule a missed class within the present half term period.

If any pupil has any symptoms of a cold – coughing, sneezing, nose-blowing or sore throat please cancel the lesson and you will not be charged. 

Spring term dates 2020

Tuesday 7th January – Friday February 14th

24th February – April 3rd

Summer term dates 2020

Tuesday 21st April – May 22nd

June 1st – July 21st


I often teach during half term and school holiday periods at mutual convenience but not through Christmas or Easter. 

I cannot accept cancellations at less than one half term’s notice under normal circumstances.

Pupils should be of 6 years and above though I will consider teaching children under 6 years depending on suitability.

If on the rare occasion I need to cancel a class, I will give as much notice as possible. I will give a full refund for that class if it cannot be rescheduled within the present half term period at mutual convenience.

Parents are welcome to observe lessons and I recommend parents to encourage their children to practise at home every day.
