The little details

Parent / Family Involvement

Parents are very welcome to join us for our lessons and enjoy the music making, however, students often feel more comfortable and relaxed without an audience in the room. Students who learn without a parent in the lesson, benefit from taking responsibility for their own independent learning, mastering a new skill and having the confidence and openness to play the piano and perform.

Parents are welcome to make use of the waiting room during the lesson where we have a selection of magazines and books.

Catch-Up Lessons

To be eligible for a catch-up lesson you must record your absence online via the family portal or via text (0408 865 262) or email to Leonie.

  • For weekday lessons, you need to record your absence before 10am. After this time, you will not be eligible for a catch-up lesson.
  • For Saturday lessons, you need to record your absence before 7:30am. After this time, you will not be eligible for a catch-up lesson.
  • Please arrange catch-up lessons using the online family portal. Otherwise, you are welcome to arrange lessons directly with Leonie. Your Studio Teacher does not have the ability to arrange catch up lessons.
  • Catch-up lessons must be used within the calendar year; i.e. they cannot be transferred to 2020.
  • At the end of the calendar year, any unused lessons will be forfeited.
  • If you book a catch-up lesson and are unable to attend that lesson (for any reason), another catch-up will not be offered and that catch-up will be deemed to be taken.
  • Refunds for postponed lessons are not possible.

Termination of Lessons

If a student wishes to cease lessons, a minimum of two weeks’ notice is required.  For example, if a student decides in Term 1 that they do not wish to continue in Term 2, notice must be given at least two weeks prior to the end of Term 1.
