Lessons of 40 minutes duration are given weekly on a cycle of 30 throughout the academic year, charged as 13, 9 and 8 lessons in the Michaelmas, Lent and Summer terms respectively. Occasionally it may not be possible to fit in the full allocation of lessons exactly as above in each individual term but the full 30 will be given during the course of the academic year or an appropriate refund given.
Owing to the Fifth and Sixth Form pupils undergoing public examinations and study leave in the Summer term the overall number of lessons given is 24 (27 for Lower Sixth Form). Extra lessons beyond the standard number will be billed separately.
Lesson charges will be included on the termly bill.
If at any point you wish tuition to cease, ONE FULL TERM’S NOTICE IS REQUIRED IN WRITING TO THE DIRECTOR OF MUSIC.
In practice, this means that if notice is received after the first day of term, you will be charged for that term and the following term.
For instrumental tuition you will receive written reports of your son/daughter's progress at the end of each term via the School's standard reporting procedures.
Please do not hesitate to contact Sarah Searle, Music Administrator if you wish to discuss any aspect of the provision of music tuition at Stowe.
