Fee Structure and Policies

Fees

The lesson fee is $32 per 30 minutes. Lessons will be charged by the term, which is eight weeks. (The total cost for lessons for an eight week term is $256.) New students will be billed on the day the application form is received. Continuing students will be billed for the subsequent term on their last lesson of the current term. Payment is by the term, and is requested within seven days of billing. A late fee of $32 will be charged if payment is not received within seven days. Payments later than 21 days will result in discontinuation. This information was last updated on January 10, 2019.

Through the Creative Kids program of the NSW government, parents can apply for a voucher with a value of up to $100 per calendar year for each student aged 4.5 to 18 years old enrolled in school (including children who are registered for home education.) The voucher may be used towards tuition costs for music lessons with Rebecca Stewart, a registered activity provider with Creative Kids. The voucher can be used at any time during the calendar year it was issued. https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/transaction/apply-creative-kids-voucher

Additional costs

Parents can plan to spend around $50 per year on books and materials which the teacher will ask you to buy from a store or online. Please note, photocopied materials are not permitted due to copyright.

Student Absence

There are no reimbursements for lessons missed by a student. Students are permitted to ask another family at the piano studio to swap a lesson with them in the case of family holidays, school events etc. The lesson swap would need to take place within that school term. You may wish to consider swapping with the student before or after your scheduled lesson, so they can have a 60 minute lesson one week and you can have a 60 minute lesson the following week. If you wish to make this available, please make sure you share your contact details directly with other families. Lesson swaps will not be arranged by the teacher. Any other discussion regarding rescheduling a lesson will be at the teacher’s discretion.

Teacher Absence

A make-up lesson time will be offered by the teacher for a lesson missed due to teacher illness. If the teacher is unable to fulfil the required number of lessons in a term, tuition charges may be adjusted.

Discontinuation

Please give three weeks written notice in the case of lesson discontinuation.
