20% Sibling Discount – Siblings attending Primo Piano receive a discount of 20% off the normal lesson price (not applicable to Shared Lessons and Individual Lessons).
Weekly prices until Sept ’18 (please note group lesson fees are paid in half term blocks in advance)
40 minute Group Lesson: £13
30 minute Shared Lesson: £13 (per child, no sibling discount available)
30 minute Individual Lesson: £17 (for advanced students or beginner’s who are not suited to learning in a group environment, no sibling discount available)
Payment – Fees for all lessons are paid in half term ‘blocks’ in advance usually no later than the last session of the previous half term block. Depending on the length of the term, this is typically six or seven lessons.
‘Period of Notice’ – When a student leaves Primo Piano we require half a term’s notice or payment of half a term’s fees in lieu of notice. This period of notice is to enable us to efficiently plan our group activities to the convenience of all our parents.
‘Catch Up’ lessons (Group Lessons, Shared Lessons and Private Lessons) – We are unable to offer refunds or credits for missed lessons. If a child misses a lesson, a practice update is sent out by text or email. If a child misses two sessions in a half term block a ‘catch up’ lesson will be offered. This will be scheduled at a mutually convenient time during the subsequent holiday break. Typically, two day are put aside in each holiday break for this purpose.
Additional costs -Your child will need a piano or piano keyboard to practice on. Please see our advice on choosing a suitable instrument.
Music books – Typically around £10-15 a year
Assessments (group sessions) – We have an in-house assessment system. There are around two assessments each year and there is a £10 assessment fee which covers the cost of administration, report writing and the special assessment badge awarded to each student.
