Guitar Lesson Agreement between Simply Guitar and _
This agreement outlines the terms and conditions for school students participating in [School Guitar Lessons] with Simply Guitar. By enrolling in our school-based guitar lessons, you agree to the following:
Payment for your child’s lessons is required via monthly direct debit.
Group lessons = £12 per lesson billed £33 p/m (2 Students = 20 Minutes, 3 Students = 30 Mins)
20-minute individual lessons = £20 per lesson billed £54.95 p/m
30-minute individual lessons = £30 per lesson billed £79.95 p/m
Sibling discount is available at 20% for the second child only.
Lesson Schedule: Students will be provided with  lessons over the duration of the school year. The start and end dates of the year are as follows: [04/SEP/23] to [24/JUL/24]. To account for potential teacher absences or school-related events, a buffer of  weeks will be included throughout the year. These buffer weeks may be utilised to catch up to our planned lessons compared to the  week school year. An example of where these may be used are inset days, SATS week, end of year Christmas performances.
Payment for lessons will be due on 1st day of the month via DD. We bill over 12 months which means if you complete the entire school year you will be billed in August (when no lessons take place). If you prefer to pay over 11 months with slightly higher monthly cost or for August in advance (same total cost) we can accommodate. If you are joining part way through the year, this will be noted and adjusted to reflect this with an extra balancing payment requested if necessary. If this is the case, a full breakdown will be sent to you at the time.
Unless the teacher is absent, all missed lessons will be charged for. Lessons will not be refunded or rearranged in the case of short-term illness, school trips or planned/unplanned absence (including non-emergency closures with less that 48 hours’ notice).
Should one of our teachers not be able to take a lesson a suitable cover teacher will be provided who will be notified of current material. If we can’t find one due to time constraints we will rearrange at a time suitable with your school unless we use one of our buffer weeks.
School Holidays: Lessons will not be conducted during the following school holidays:
FEBRUARY HALF TERM (1 week)
EASTER HOLIDAYS (2 weeks)
MAY HALF TERM (1 week)
SUMMER HOLIDAYS (6 weeks)
OCTOBER HALF TERM (1 week)
CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS (2 weeks)
Lesson Materials: Students are required to bring their own guitar, books and any necessary accessories, such as picks or capos, to each lesson. Extra lesson materials and resources will be provided by the instructor online on the Simply Guitar LMS and will be communicated by your tutor
Parental Communication: Parents will be kept informed of their child's progress throughout the term. Periodic updates may be provided via email or other agreed-upon communication methods.
Conduct and Behaviour: Students are expected to conduct themselves in a respectful manner during lessons and within the school environment. Disruptive behaviour will not be tolerated on any level.
Lesson Termination Policy: In the event of a student wishing to leave Simply Guitar require a full terms notice by email to email@example.com. This must be received within the first two weeks of the beginning of term. Lessons will then cease at the end of that term.
After we receive your notice, we will schedule your final payment before cancelling the subscription. Because the payments are taken as equal monthly amounts throughout the year there may be unused lessons which you can use up before you leave us or a payment due if you have had more lessons than paid for. We will request a payment then close the subscription.
School Policies and Collaborations: Simply Guitar may collaborate with the school administration to align guitar lessons with the school's music curriculum. Such collaborations will enhance the students' musical development and enrich their overall learning experience. Students will be encouraged to join in with these events and we appreciate your support as parents and guardians!
By participating in our school-based guitar lessons, you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to the terms and conditions outlined in this agreement. Simply Guitar is committed to providing an enjoyable and enriching musical journey for all students.
