2019 Instrumental Program Conditions:

  • There are 8 lessons per term and fees are payable in advance. There is an early bird discount of $5 per student if payment is received within 7 days and this will be credited to the following terms tuition. An immediate $5 per student discount is also available to those who choose to pay by direct debit.
  • If tuition fees have not been paid 7 days prior to the start of each term a $10 late fee will be charged. Students will also not be allowed to attend lessons if payment is not received by the end of the 2nd week of each term.
  • All enrolments are automatically continued from one term to the next and from year to year. If you wish your child to withdraw from the program, written notice is required at least 2 weeks prior to the end of the term. If official notification is not received by this time, you will forfeit your initial holding bond of $25. (Please note that the holding bond will be credited to a nominated bank account if the required notice is given and bank details are supplied). All students who continue with music lessons until the end of grade 6 will automatically be credited the $25 holding deposit in their final term of music lessons.
  • If your child misses any lessons due to illness or personal leave, you will still be required to pay the full term’s tuition. Once the term fees have been paid no refunds will be given.
  • AAll students are entitled to 2 make-up lessons per term if they miss a lesson, regardless of the reason. In order for make-up lessons to be applicable parents need to personally inform their child’s music teacher either by text or email no later than 8am on the day of the missed lesson. Your child’s music teacher will then be in touch with you to arrange a make up lesson time (see teacher contact details below). Advance notice is also required for lessons missed for school reasons ie. swimming, excursions etc. as we are not always informed of all events happening within the school. If advanced notice is not received by this time the lesson will still be charged for and no lesson credits or refunds will be given. The only exception to this is when parents have no prior knowledge of a school event which may prevent their child from attending their music lesson. If this occurs please inform me personally.
  • Some schools charge a room usage fee. If this fee applies to your school it will appear on your term invoice and parents only pay part of the room usage fee charged. Please contact the office if you would like to find out which schools this fee applies to. The room usage fee will apply from term 1 2019. For all new enrolments this fee will be charged from the 2nd term of enrolment.

Testimonials

After one year of keyboard, we were pleasantly surprised how well Christy performed as part of a group in a lovely end of year concert. Christy found further motivation when I finally made time to squeeze in a few private lessons so that she could measure her progress by completing exams. The group and private lessons provide complementary outcomes, by creating a musician who wants to improve and who can play as part of a group. Cath has a caring approach, and there is no pressure to take on private lessons.

My daughter has been attending Kids on Key through our school for the last 4 years. In this time she has developed a love of music and fostered a wonderful relationship with her music teacher. Kids on Key has provided my daughter with a positive, fun and challenging music program. My daughter is excited to be partaking in her next ANZCA exam for piano this year and I am positive that her love of music and piano is because of the fantastic environment provided by Kids on Key.

Kylie Kibsgaard

My children have been learning keyboard for about 4 years with Kids on Key. I think it is a fantastic program, especially as these classes can be done around school times. My children have learned to read music as well as learn keyboard, both of which I truly believe helps to expand our children’s mind for many other areas of their life, similar to the benefits of learning another language, and Susan is just a wonderful teacher. The opportunity to further the education with exams and grading is there for the students that wish to pursue their instruments further.
