- Changes in family circumstances that occur after a course has started (such as redundancy) are always looked on very sympathetically and fees may be adjusted via Music for Life.
- Significant fee reductions may be available to families facing hardship. Please ask for details BEFORE booking lessons.
- As already stated, some course fees may be considerably lower due to subsidies available in particular schools. As you complete the booking form, you will see the correct course fee for your school.
Subsidised lessons are available to support students with qualifying circumstances, for example, if you are in receipt of free school meals or have been within the past six years. This will be allocated in line with national guidelines. If no place is available when applied for, students will be placed on a waiting list and allocated a place as soon as one becomes available.
