Terms and Conditions for taking lessons with Matt Hurt Music
I understand that by booking online, without contacting Matt Hurt Music first, appointment times are subject to availability and may need to be rescheduled due to conflict.
Students partaking in private lessons are entitled to rearrange one lesson per teaching period (invoiced set of lessons) without charge, subject to availability, provided a minimum 24 hours notice is given.
24 hours notice is required if you wish to cancel a lesson without being charged for the lesson.
Students partaking in shared or group lessons may not rearrange their lesson for an individual lesson without being charged for the new lesson at private lesson rates. If you cannot make your shared lesson a minimum of 24 hours notice must be provided or your lesson fee will be forfeited.
The teacher reserves the right to forfeit your lesson if you are running more than 10 minutes late and you have not attempted to get in contact.
Lessons must be paid in full before the completion of the lesson
Invoices for multiple lessons must be paid in full no later than 2 weeks from the invoice date.
Payment methods are listed on the invoice. I accept bank transfer as a primary method, cash and credit card payments are also accepted. Credit card payments can be made through the scheduling app I use for appointments and will incur the extra cost for using this service.
When paying by bank transfer please quote the student’s name and invoice number.
As a performing musician Matt Hurt Music reserves the right to rearrange lessons if, on the rare occasion, a performance clashes with your arranged lesson. You will be credited the appropriate time missed and the lesson will be rearranged at no extra charge.
If you attend a regular weekly/fortnightly lesson it is your responsibility to inform me of any lessons you will not be attending. I endeavour to send invoices and confirmations more than 24 hours in advance of your lesson, however as a busy self employed sole trader this is not always possible. Please be vigilant with your cancellations and expect to be charged/forfeit a lesson if the previously mentioned terms are not adhered to.
If the teacher is unable to teach due to sickness Matt Hurt Music will endeavour to inform you, the student or parent/guardian, with as much notice as possible. Credit will be provided for the missed lesson and Matt Hurt Music will rearrange the lesson at no extra charge.
Matt Hurt Music reserves the right to provide a stand in teacher, without notice, if your regular teacher is unable to make a lesson for any reason.
