Please note that you will be required to pay 50% of the total amount of your first lesson upon the day of booking. This is something I have had to introduce due to new clients booking and not turning up for their session.

A discount will be applied for anyone booking lessons during weekdays between the hours of 9:30am and 6pm. Group lessons or workshops can also be arranged – please feel free to discuss this with me, or contact me for a quote.

If you book a block of ten lessons you will receive a 10% discount (so that’s one lesson free)! This can be arranged for any length of lesson (30 minutes, 60 minutes, 90 minutes or 2 hours). If you do not complete the course of ten lessons then no refund will be given for missed or cancelled lessons.

Lessons can be arranged weekly, fortnightly or on an ad hoc basis to suit your schedule. I try to remain flexible and, where requested, will aim to keep the same, convenient slot available for you each time you would like a lesson.

Payment should be made, in full, by cash or cheque during your lesson or by BACS on the morning of your lesson. To obtain your 10% discount, full payment must be made during the first of your block of 10 lessons.

Gift vouchers may also be purchased for any duration of lesson as well as for block bookings.

Cancellations

I have to ask that you provide at least 24 hours notice if you need to cancel a previously booked lesson.

Lessons cancelled with less that 24 hours notice will be charged at the full rate and will be payable by BACS on the day of the cancelled lesson. (Where a block of lessons have been booked, one lesson will be deducted from the block of ten.) Similarly, missed lessons will be charged at the full rate and will be payable by BACS on the day of the missed lesson.

If you have a bad cold, throat infection, a severe hayfever attack or any other breathing related illness you should not attend your lesson. Instead you should call me by 9am on the morning of your lesson to let me know that you will not be well enough to attend your lesson. No cancellation fee will be charged under these circumstances, Similarly, if I am ill I will contact you to let you know and to re-arrange.

If you need to cancel a lesson, please contact me as soon as possible.
