Tuition Rates

Music tuition at merri bell music costs $33 per half hour. Forty-five  and sixty minute lessons are also offered at a cost of $49.50 and $66 respectively.

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 2019 are as follows:

Term 1 Monday 28 January 2018 Friday 12 April 2018
Term 2 Monday 29 April 2018 Friday 05 July 2018
Term 3 Monday 22 July 2018 Friday 27 September 2018
Term 4 Monday 14 October 2018 Friday 20 December 2018

The studio operates as normal on public holidays.

Should you commence lessons part-way through the term, payment is required for the remainder of the term.

Payment for full terms or blocks of lessons are to be made by 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) nor can I create extra teaching time. I will attempt to reschedule a lesson if you cannot attend, although this cannot be guaranteed due to both teacher and student schedules.

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, or a credit will be offered.

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

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