School Aged Students

Fees are payable per term in advance. Mid-term enrolments are billed for the lessons remaining in the term. A registration fee of $10 is due each term.

Adult Students

Adult students are required to pay for each lesson attended, in advance. 24 hours notice is required for all cancellations; full lesson fees will be charged for cancellations outside this time frame.


Payment

 

Lessons and services can be paid by direct deposit, cash or card (surcharge applies). Payments are non refundable.


Lateness,
Absence &
Cancellation

 

Upon enrolment with the studio, an exclusive lesson time is reserved. When a student does not attend a lesson, with or without notice, this causes direct financial loss to the teacher. The Music Teachers' Association of Queensland recommends that accredited members charge for such missed lessons, unless the circumstances, in the teacher’s opinion, warrant some special concession.

In the unlikely event that I cannot attend a lesson, students will be notified as soon as possible, and the lesson rescheduled to a mutually agreeable time.

To discontinue lessons, written notice is required no later than the last lesson of the current term. Failure to provide the required notice will result in a cancellation fee (50% of the following term account).


General Information

 

Music study requires a commitment from students and parents alike. Students are encouraged to regularly complete quality practice, commensurate to their age and level of experience, and to arrived prepared for their lessons. 

I have a zero tolerance policy for uncooperative or disrespectful behaviour from students.

Please be mindful that I am not able to hold responsibility for your child outside their allotted lesson time. As such, also respecting the time of the student prior and subsequent, students should not be dropped off early or collected late from lessons.

The reproduction of sheet music (hard and digital copies) and audio recordings is strictly prohibited by Australian Copyright Law. The purchase of all required lesson materials is at the expense of the student.

Singers are encouraged to bring a recording device (i.e. iPhone/iPod) to record each lesson for at-home practice.

I have an open door policy and will happily address any questions or concerns that arise. Please feel free to ask questions during lesson time, or via phone/text/email. Parents of children and teens will receive periodic updates from me, so we can track progress and any other needs. At all times, respectful correspondence between all parties is required.

In accordance with the requirements of the Commission for Children and Young Pople, and as a business regulated by the Commission's Act, I, Courtney Feldman, have a current Blue Suitability Card and Risk Management Strategy in place, showing a commitment to maintaining the safety and wellbeing of all clients. These can be sighted upon request.
