Enrolment & Lesson Policies

Lesson Program Plans
Lessons are booked automatically for every week of the year, however you have the flexibility to choose not to have lessons in holiday periods.

Consistent WEEKLY lessons however provide the maximum motivation, achieve maximum progress and reduce the possibility of boredom or bad habits developing.

All Lessons are paid via a WEEKLY Direct debit from a credit card, through a secure online Banking service.

  • Payments are made  in advance of each lesson.
  • Students can “Reschedule” their lessons online if a minimum of 24 hours notice is given.
  • If an appropriate day and time cannot be found at the time of requesting a reschedule Students can ask their teacher to”Bank” their lessons for them if a minimum of 24 hours notice is given. There is no limit on lesson reschedule or Banking requests although Banked lessons must be used within 90 days.
  • Lessons can be “Cancelled” if the minimum of 24 hours notice is given. Cancellation given with less than 24 hours notice will mean the lesson fee will still be charged as if a lesson was given.
