Private Music Tuition External
Policies for Learning an Instrument at MLC School
Students electing to have private Music lessons are committing to the full year of tuition (ie up until the end of Term 4). Should a student withdraw from private music lessons, the balance of the year’s tuition fees must be paid. Changes to a student’s tuition must be approved in advance by the Director of Music.
The full yearly tuition fee is divided into four payments and must be paid in advance at the beginning of each term on enrolment.
External students (those not currently attending MLC School) must pay an additional 10% GST.
As Private Music Tuition is available to MLC School families and external students, the information is available on the MLC School Public Website accessible to the wider community
Organisation of Lessons
Private Music Tuition is given on the basis of 32 lessons per year, or the equivalent of 8 lessons per term.
Students are assigned to a teacher by the Head of Strings, Head of Keyboard or Head of Bands. It is expected that parents liaise with the student’s teacher to ensure that clear lines of communication are established to inform the teacher about any absences for excursions, exams or sickness.
Cancellation of Lessons
If students or teachers need to cancel a lesson, 48 hours’ notice must be given. Please note that lessons missed without prior notification may not be made up by the teacher. This includes lessons missed due to equipment/instruments being forgotten, as well as lessons that need to be changed due to exams/tests, excursions/incursions, sports carnivals, etc., as well as Music teachers having to change due to other extraordinary professional commitments. Extra lessons can be given (and are charged separately) after the 32 designated lessons have been given.
