All pupils begin with a trial lesson (normal fee applies). If, following this lesson, you and your child are happy, arrangements for a regular weekly lesson timecan be made.At busy times during the year, pupils waiting for a weekly lesson time to become available are kept on a list. They are then notified as soon as a lesson time becomes available, including any cancellations.
You are not committed to having any number of lessons. You may be looking for some long or short-term help, depending on your child's needs. Your only commitment is to try and keep the lesson time that has been agreed each week. With children often waiting for lessons at busy times during the year, as much notice as possible is requested should you need to cancel a lesson in order that another child can have your lesson time.
