WHAT LEVEL DO I TEACH? I teach from BEGINNERS to ADVANCED players with an emphasis on technique to give faster results.
• LESSONS for CHILDREN aged 4 years and above; I’m a parent of a 13 year old and teaching children is something I love to do. Also, I encourage a parent/guardian to attend the lesson so they can assist the student with their daily practice.
• LESSONS for ADULTS: around half of my students are teenagers or working adults. Adults actually learn the violin much faster than most children. What adults lack in time, they make up for in motivation and disciplined regular practice.

FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions about LESSONS:
1. MONTHLY PAYMENT is made in advance on the last week of the previous month.
2. REPLACEMENT/MAKEUP LESSONS are offered when you can’t come to your normal lesson time IF:
(a) you notify me 24 HOURS BEFORE your scheduled lesson that you will be absent.
(b) IF the makeup lesson is in the SAME CALENDAR MONTH as the lesson that was missed. Please arrange your replacement lesson a.s.a.p. as refunds are not given and the following month fees are not reduced.
(c) IF you arrange the makeup lessons by sending me an sms of your selected day and time from the list of AVAILABLE TIMES ABOVE. I can’t suggest times to you as I don’t know when you are free. PLEASE NOTE: If the replacement lesson is not arranged it won’t be transferred or forwarded to the following month.
(a) Public Holidays: unlike some schools, I do not charge for lessons that fall on Public Holidays. As no lesson is given on Public Holidays, no lesson fee is charged for that day.
(b) School Holidays: Most school holidays I am teaching. If you will be away for a week or more, you can notify me when advance payment is made at the end of the month. If I am told of this when fees are paid, the fees will be reduced for these weeks. Please tell me in advance as unused lessons are not refunded and unused lessons are not transferred to the following month.
I don’t teach on the last two weeks of December (i.e. 14th-31st December) so no lesson fees are charged for these weeks.
(c) The 5th week of the month: lessons will not be given on one of the 5 weeks as notified by the teacher, so please ask when fees are paid.
