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.  You 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.


We take bookings by the term (like school terms) and the length of term varies between 10-12 weeks.

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

We offer 3 pricing options for your convenience:

$33 per lesson ($34 for senior teacher) up front payment.

$30 per lesson ($31 for senior teacher) is our auto debit price.

$42 per lesson ($43 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 or before 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 need to give 2 weeks written notice by email to info@northernmusic.com.au. You will not be charged for school holidays at the end of term if we do not teach. Please note we teach on public holidays.

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

Early Bird Special

Our popular earlybird special will open again in December for first term 2019 lessons. Book and pay online at trybooking.com.au and you will only pay $30 per lesson ($31 for a senior teacher) plus site booking fees


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 discounted of $1.50 per lesson for the second child and every additional child enrolled.

If 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 $61 for a 45 minute lesson, we charge $60. 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 notify the teacher before 9.00am, we will provide a make up lesson. We will do that up to 2 times per term.

But you must notify the teacher not the school.

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.
