Fees for all lessons are charged on a ‘per term’ basis unless the student starts late in the term. Invoices are issued prior to the commencement of term (where possible) and are payable by the due date on the invoice. Fees may be paid via cash, cheque, credit card (by phone and in-person), or by direct deposit to our bank account. Please DO NOT give money to the tutor or leave it at the school office. Lessons may be cancelled by the Conservatorium if fees are in arrears with an administrative charge of $10 (minimum) being applied to outstanding accounts.
NO REFUNDS will be given for missed lessons. Lessons missed by the tutor will be made up or credited to your account. The Conservatorium’s tutors reserve the right to discontinue lessons where a student’s behaviour or attitude is deemed inappropriate. In this situation, the tutor will contact the student’s parent or guardian.
Terms are generally the same as those of the public schools. Lessons are not held on public or school holidays. All students are encouraged to perform at in‐house concerts, or at public functions. Many tutors encourage their students to undertake exams and enter eisteddfods but this is always in consultation between the tutors, parents and student.
Parents are encouraged to discuss their child’s progress with his/her tutor, but this should be during their child’s lesson. Lessons begin and end promptly at the designated time, so your punctuality would be appreciated.
Parents are reminded that students are expected to purchase their own music books as needed as our staff will not contravene the Copyright Act NSW with regard to photocopying. Our staff have been trained in child protection issues and will always endeavour to provide a safe and happy environment for your child. For more details of Terms and Conditions see student diaries.
