Tuition Rates

Music tuition at merri bell music costs $30 per half hour. Forty-five minute lessons are also offered at a cost of $45.

Tuition is charged by the school term, paid in full at the beginning of each term and is non-refundable.

Each term payment is calculated according to the number of weeks in the term as per the NSW Board of Studies term dates. This is usually 10 or 11 weeks and occasionally only nine weeks.

School terms for 2017 are as follows:

Term 1 Monday 30 January 2017 Saturday 08 April 2017
Term 2 Monday 24 April 2017 Saturday 01 July 2017
Term 3 Monday 17 July 2017 Saturday 24 September 2017
Term 4 Monday 09 October 2017 Saturday 16 December 2017

The studio operates as normal on public holidays.

Should you commence lessons part-way through the term, you can pay for a block of lessons (calculated individually according to remainder of term).

Payment for full terms or blocks of lessons can be made either by cheque or direct deposit (details available on request).

Try to choose a lesson time to which you are confident you can commit on a regular basis. Please understand that the tuition you pay reserves an exclusive weekly time in my schedule for you (or your child). Unlike a doctor or a hairdresser, I cannot resell that time (and therefore cannot refund) but I will attempt to reschedule a lesson if you cannot attend.

The studio shall not assume any financial responsibility for a student’s absence.

Similarly, should I need to cancel a lesson for any reason, every effort will be made to schedule a replacement lesson at a time that best suits you.

All replacement lessons must be scheduled within two weeks from the lesson missed.

Please contact me with any queries or for further information.
