Important Information

How our music school runs & all the information you need for lessons

Terms & Conditions

  • There is an initial interview between teacher, prospective student, and parent/guardian, where terms and conditions of lessons are explained. The student will then have a musical experience assessment.

  • For following lessons, parents are asked to wait outside once they have dropped their child off for their lesson. Children tend to not be so self-conscious, if they are not performing in front of their parents. This also enables the student and teacher to progress well with learning outcomes when there is less distraction in the room.

  • At Songlines Music Studio we teach during the Public School’s Term Calendar, so effectively we also have 4 Terms per year. This is convenient for most of our students and also allows them some much needed time with family and other activities over the school holidays.

  • Each term usually consists of a total of 10 Lessons. When you book a lesson time, you are making a commitment for the term for that slot.

  • All Lessons are to be paid in full by the start of term(first week), unless paying weekly and then we require the fee to be paid prior to the commencement of the lesson. Please send a screenshot of your payment to your teacher.

  • If you are unable to attend your lesson, please give 24 hrs notice, as someone else may be able to use that spot.

  • Missed lessons are to be paid for regardless of attendance, as it is a time we specifically set aside and factor into our timetable for you. If your teacher decides to make that lesson up, that is at their own discretion and according to the time they have available in their schedules.

  • Alternatively if the teacher cancels lessons due to unforeseen circumstances, they will make up that lesson at their discretion at a mutually agreed time.

  • In our experience we have found that weekly lessons of ½ an hour, provide the best learning outcomes for our junior students. The consistent approach of checking in at these intervals guarantee they are learning at a good pace and achieving their goals and outcomes. Of course everyone differs and we adapt as we go along.

  • Some Adult students may choose to attend lessons during the day and this allows more opportunities for ¾ hour and 1 hr lessons with our teachers. In this we are quite flexible.

  • Please ensure that all music books, folders and a USB drive are brought to lessons. Also water to hydrate.

  • We offer to record our lessons for students so they may get the most out of their lessons. We require permission for this so if your interested please inform us.

  • At Songlines Music Studio, when entering our wonderful space, we require all students, parents, guardians and siblings, to be considerate and respectful of the equipment, the teachers, and others in attendance. 

  • If you need to approach a teacher in regard to lessons or things pertaining to our studio please do so in writing in an e-mail to your teacher. We don’t encourage communication about our students in front of them or during changeover between lessons. That way we get the most out of lesson times and all things of concern can be covered and not missed or misconstrued.
