Payment – Fees for all lessons are paid termly in advance usually no later than the last session of the previous half term block. Parents paying for two children are welcome to ‘stagger’ the payment paying for the older child in the usual way and the younger sibling no later than the half term break.
‘Period of Notice’ – When a student leaves Primo Piano we respectfully ask for half a term’s notice no later than the week of half term in the term they leave (or pay half a term’s fees in lieu of notice).
‘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 with links to learning videos relevant to the missed lesson. 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.
