1. Fees & Booking

Lesson fees are subject to annual review. Where Lesson fees are increased as a result of such a review, the

Teacher shall endeavour to give the Student at least one month's notice of such increase. The Student shall

have the right to terminate this agreement immediately on written notice to the Teacher without liability to

pay for any further Lessons (and to receive a refund in respect of any Lessons for which the Student has paid

in advance) in the event that the applicable Lesson fees increase.

Lessons are booked one calendar month in advance and are charged on a month by month basis

depending on how many weekly lessons are due in that month. Online payments are mandatory

and clients are required to setup a payment card which will be automatically charged 3 days

before the 1st of the month. You will receive an invoice which will detail exactly what you have

been charged based on what is scheduled for the coming month. Any changes to the schedule

must be updated in the student portal 48hrs before invoices are sent out (five days before the last

day of the month). Clients are responsible for their own schedule and all invoices are final.
