  • Lessons are time booked with an instructor each week in advance for the duration of each term, and are payable at the beginning of each term unless billing to a MLC Family Account (MLC students only).
  •  In general eight lessons are billed per term. Exceptions to this are Group Classes and short school terms. The Music Academy office must be notified a term in advance for any lesson dates a student is unavailable. Billing of reduced lessons will be at the discretion of the Instructor and the Music Academy. No adjustments will be considered once the term has commenced.
  • Failure to pay lesson fees after 14 days may result in lessons being suspended or terminated, or a late fee applied.
