Policies at Gabrielle Johnson Music

  • Term classes are a commitment of 9 weeks on a specific start and end date that run during school terms.
  • No refunds are given once term classes commence.
  • Please check your calendars and plans carefully before agreeing to commit to a term with us.
  • Part-term payments are not available.
  • A full refund will be given if a class does not go ahead and there's no suitable replacement class.

Bookings and make-up lessons

  • Students are given first priority to re-book their term spot but must do so by the due date.
  • Due dates are notified before the end of each term to book for next term.
  • After the due date, all class spots are open for anyone to book.
  • Class spots are confirmed by your term payment only - a verbal request will not secure your spot.
  • Make-up classes are possible  if a similar group class or free private spot available.
  • You may transfer to a different group class to the same value if your current class no longer suits you and there is a vacancy.

Commitment to Home Practice

  • Home practice is a requirement of learning a new skill and will be expected each week.
  • This website has a dedicated page for both vocal and guitar practice and is a great resource!
  • Lesson notes will be emailed with reminders on what each student should be practising each week.
  • We encourage parents and students to discuss a home practice routine together - much like school homework.
  • My YouTube Channel has many video tutorials and playlists that will relate to their lessons.

Solos and Performances

  • All group students will have an end of term class recital which usually occur at their final class.
  • Recitals are difficult for private students as they don't all meet at the same time
  • Private students are invited to participate in the whole school concert along with the group students.
  • Parents are very welcome to sit in on their first and final class of term.
  • We encourage our students to perform in community events and are always on the lookout for ways to showcase their talents!

Thank you for taking the time to read our policies.
