Ann Dudding Music - Terms and conditions for music lessons.

1. Lessons
The Teacher will give tuition during the school day as in agreement with London Mead.

2. Payment of fees
The Pupil (or the Pupil's parent or carer) will pay the fees for each half term in full before the first lesson of the half term. Any lessons missed due to late payment shall not be replaced unless in exceptional circumstances as determined by the Teacher.

3. Lesson timetable
Before the first lesson of each half term, the Teacher will give the Pupil (or the Pupil's parent or carer) written confirmation of the dates and times of all lessons during that half term. These times could be subject to change at short notice, and the Teacher shall give written notice of any changes.

4. Missed lessons
The Teacher will charge for any scheduled lessons which the Pupil does not attend unless the Teacher chooses not to do so because of exceptional circumstances. If the Teacher cancels a scheduled lesson, the Pupil (or the Pupil's parent or carer) may choose between (i) carrying the lesson forward; (ii) receiving a replacement lesson; or (iii) receiving a refund of the lesson fee.

5. Progression
It is important to note that whilst the Teacher will use their best endeavours to ensure high quality lessons for the Pupil, this cannot guarantee satisfactory progress. Careful regular practice as advised by the Teacher is a prerequisite of success on any musical instrument or in any musical endeavour.

6. Termination of tuition
(a) This Agreement may be ended by mutual consent at any time by both signatories to it signing and dating a written statement to that effect.
(b) Where fees are not paid on time, the Teacher reserves the right, entirely at the Teacher's discretion, to terminate this Agreement with immediate effect by giving written notice of termination to the Pupil or Pupil's parent or carer. This right to terminate is without prejudice to any other rights the Teacher may have.
(c) Either signatory to this Agreement may terminate the Agreement by giving notice in writing to the other signatory no later than the end of the half term preceding the termination date. Such termination will take effect at the end of a term only and not at any other time.
(d) If the Teacher gives notice to terminate tuition at the end of a half term in accordance with this Agreement, the Teacher will continue to provide lessons until the end of that half term. The Teacher must give notice of no less than one half term.

7. Changes
Any changes to the terms of this Agreement must be confirmed in writing and signed and dated by both the Teacher and the Pupil (or the Pupil's parent or carer).
