Twang Music Academy's Terms & Conditions
All students must complete the Twang Music Academy Ltd enrolment form and pay an enrolment fee of £25.00 to join the academy. No lessons can be arranged without paying an enrolment fee.
The enrolment fee reserves your preferred time slot and provides you with benefits such as:
Regular lessons with our experienced teachers.
For those who are learning guitar, you are entitled to a free restring every three months. For those learning Violin you are entitled to a free restring every 6 months and for those learning Cello or Bass Guitar once a year.
Students who do not play stringed instruments, we offer to pay for one exam a year. Please speak to your teachers and admin staff for more information.
Once you have submitted your form and paid your enrolment fee you will be contacted by a teacher to arrange your first lesson.
When enrolling online, there is not an an option to purchase a taster lesson. If you pay our enrolment fee online, we can use this to cover the cost of the taster lesson. If you choose to come for another lesson after this, you will need to pay the enrolment fee.
If we get no response from you in 90 days, your enrolment is no longer valid. If you wish to take a break please communicate this with your teacher or the admin staff and we can take a note of this, so your enrolment is still valid.
When signing up with us you are automatically signing up for weekly lessons, unless you have otherwise organised this with your teacher. For example, you may choose to have lessons fortnightly or monthly, but you must confirm this with your allocated tutor.
Lessons are conducted throughout the year and do not stop during the school holidays unless specified by your tutor. Twang Music Academy closes on national bank holidays and Christmas unless you have alternative arrangements organised with your tutor. Please inform us, with as much advance notice as possible, if you are planning to be absent from any lesson or away for more than two weeks at a time.
Should a student miss a lesson without the appropriate 24 hours notice (during business hours - 10am - 6pm Monday - Saturday, 10am - 4pm on Sunday's) being given, the missed lesson must be paid for at or before the next lesson to enable us to pay the teacher for their time.
If you wish to cancel your lesson, students must give as much advance notice as possible, but no less than 24 hours during business hours. To cancel a lesson you must contact your tutor or another member of staff at Twang Guitars between 10am-6pm on 0208 676 0926. If proper notice is not given the lesson will be charged at the full normal rate.
If any student cancels frequently or they display unsatisfactory or inappropriate behaviour, their place at Twang Music Academy may be withdrawn. For more information on our behaviour policy please download the document below.
