Park Street Piano Studio Policy

2. Yearly Tuition Package

Tuition is based on a 'yearly package' which is averaged per month. If you join the studio mid-way through the teaching year, the package will be adjusted accordingly. Parents are expected to make regular monthly payments regardless of the number of weeks in the month. If you cease piano lessons mid-way through the teaching year, a final invoice will be adjusted accordingly.

Invoicing

Invoices are emailed 30 days prior to the due date. Tuition invoices fall due on the 8th of each month (except January). Invoices for Music books are due within seven (7) days as they have been purchased and already paid for on your behalf.

When piano tuition is being cancelled, 30 days notice is required in order to prepare your final invoice. Payment of this final invoice is due by the last scheduled piano lesson.

Late Payments

If your payment is 7 days late, an Invoice reminders will be emailed to you.

If your payment is 10 days late, I will ring you to confirm payment arrangements.

If your payment is 14 days late, piano lessons will be suspended until payment is received. Lessons missed during this time will not be rescheduled. In order to avoid this, please contact me beforehand if your payment is going to be delayed so that alternative payment arrangements can be made. My mobile is 0438-521-341.

The tuition is calculated for the year and paid by eleven equal monthly instalments. Each instalment is due by the 8th of each month (except January). There are 38 piano lessons in the year, from the second week of February to the second week of December. The current Tuition rates are as follows:
