Lesson Structure

We provide private lessons at Northern Music School. (One student at a time) At this stage, we do not offer group lessons. But if enough people ask, we will introduce them.

Most students come for a weekly 30 minute lesson.  They book in for a set time and come at the same time each week. Some students prefer a 45 minute lesson or two 30 minute lessons per week. If you have longer lessons or more frequent lessons, you will learn faster.

We can also teach 45 minute lessons to two students at a time. We call these duo lessons.

 

Pricing

We take bookings by the term (like school terms) and the length of term varies between 10-13 weeks.

We have standard prices and senior teacher (Leon) prices. The senior teacher is an extra $1 per lesson.

We offer 3 pricing options for your convenience:

$29 per lesson ($30 for senior teacher) up front payment.

$29 per lesson ($30 for senior teacher) is our direct debit price.

$34 per lesson ($35 for senior teacher) if you don’t choose one of the above options.

Up Front price

To get the Up Front price you need to pay the total term fees at your first lesson

Direct Debit price.

Our direct debit payments are managed by IntegraPay and makes budgeting a breeze. Payments are simply debited from your bank account every week. Please note credit cards incur a charge. To cancel the direct debit arrangement or if you are going on holidays you need to give 4 weeks notice.You will not be charged for school holidays which if we do not teach on them. Please note we teach on some school holidays.

If you would like to pay by direct debit, please email the school and we will help set it up for you.

 

 

 

 

Discounts

We understand the expense of raising a family. So we offer discounts for families with more than one child at the music school. The family receives a free lesson each term for the second child and every additional child enrolled.

I f you want book in for 2 or more lessons per week, you will also receive a discount of $1.50 per lesson for second and subsequent lessons.

Our 45 minute lessons are also discounted. Instead of $51 for a 45 minute lesson, we charge $50. This also applies to duo lessons. And you can also get up front or direct debit discounts as well.

Missed Lessons

Missed Lessons need to be paid for, but provided you give the teacher 24 hours notice that you will be missing the lesson, we will provide a make up lesson. We will do that up to 2 times per term.

Rescheduled Lessons

Sometimes your teacher may be unable to attend lessons and will need to re-schedule. If the teacher reschedules it is like a make up lesson, but does not count in the two lesson cap. Obviously, you do not need to pay twice for a re-scheduled lesson.
