1. It is agreed that the Music Tutor shall teach the named instrument to the student for one lesson per
week. The number of lessons can range from 8 to 11 per term at the discretion of the tutor.
2. This agreement shall continue from term to term and must be renewed at the beginning of each year.
3. Accounts will be sent at the beginning of the term and must be paid by the due date. The number of
lessons billed are not negotiable or to be altered, unless advanced notice has been given by the parent
to the tutor. St John’s Grammar School has no involvement or responsibility for handling payment from
parent to tutor.
4. If a student is ill on the day of their instrumental lesson the tutor should be notified by the parent directly
on mobile phone as early as possible and before 7.30am of that day. If a student is to be absent from
their lesson for any other reason (including official school reasons such as excursions, camps,
academic tests) music tutors should be given as much notice as possible before the day.
5. It cannot be assumed that because the school has been contacted of the student’s absence the
instrumental tutor will receive the message. The tutor is under no obligation to make up the lesson if
due notice has not been received.
6. If a student forgets to bring their instrument, forgets to attend the lesson or no prior notification has
been given to the tutor, the lesson will not be made up but still charged.
7. If the instrumental tutor is to be absent from school, the school will be informed by 7.30am and the
school will pass on this information to the student. The tutor will arrange a makeup lesson time with the
student or credit to the next term’s account.
1. Notice of discontinuance must be given no later than Week 7 of the previous term. If lessons are
discontinued later than Week 7, one term’s fee will be payable. The parent/guardian must inform their
child’s Instrumental Tutor and Secondary School students must complete a Discontinuation Form and
return to the Jr School Music Co-ordinator. In general, students who wish to discontinue lessons must
maintain their commitment until the end of the term. If they do not wish to continue, no refund will be
given. In the event of a prolonged illness or incapacity of the student or tutor, either party may terminate
the agreement, without further liability thereafter.
8. The student and/or tutor reserves the right to request movement to another tutor for lessons if possible.
Such a move must be discussed with the Co-ordinator of Music to determine whether the move should
occur.
9. The tutor must have the student’s consent before entering that student for examination or competitions.
It is the tutor’s decision as to which examinations or competitions are suitable. The tutor reserves the
right to withdraw a student from any examination or performance.
10. Every endeavour will be made to produce excellence in music skills and standards according to the
student’s abilities. However, advancement and success depend not only on the tutor’s input but also on
the support and encouragement of parents/guardians and on the student’s own initiative, enthusiasm
and commitment.
