WHAT YOU WILL NEED FOR THE LESSONS des_isabelle
Amps, leads and guitars are provided during the lesson but if you do want to bring your own guitar (if you are left naded for example) please use a soft case instead of a hard case thanks!
If you'd like to learn a particular song, from 60's Rock 'n' Roll to 90's heavy metal, feel free to bring a CD in and I will work the music out for you and teach you how to play it in the lesson.
Also remember to bring your mobile phone and make sure it has enough memory to record videos of me playing your song or exercise.

TUITION AGREEMENT:
You will be asked to sign a form which reads:
PAYMENT TERMS
• First and last lessons are paid for together on the first lesson.(£52 for hour lessons, £28 for half hour lessons) Other lessons are paid for as taken, with no fee due for the last lesson.
Sorry, no refunds for the pre paid lesson.
• Payment should be by cash only please and you can pay weekly or monthly.
MISSED LESSONS
• Lessons can be canceled by the student providing 48 hours notice is given without a charge being made.
• If 48 hours notice of cancellation is not received, and the student is unable to attend the lesson for any reason whatsoever, (car failure, illness, bad weather etc etc) a 50% charge (£13 for hour lessons, £7 for half hour lessons) will be made no matter what the circumstance. I will try and reschedule for another time during that same week without charging the fee but if no spaces are available, the cancellation fee will be due on the next lesson. Thank you.
Lessons will always begin and end at the arranged time regardless of the student's arrival time. If the student arrives late for a lesson the full lesson fee will still be due.
• If the teacher cancels a lesson, the lesson will be rescheduled at a mutually convenient date.
PLEASE NOTE:

Anyone who doesn't attend a booked lesson and fails to contact me within 48 hours could loose the lesson slot.

Parents of young children are more than welcome to sit in on the lessons but students are asked kindly to not bring friends to the lessons.
Thank you.


Mobile phones!

mobileIt's always a great idea to bring your mobile so you can video me playing the things we have done during the lesson. That way you can play it back at home and be reminded of exactly how to play what we have been working on.

Make sure your phone is charged before the lesson and make sure you have enough memory on your phone to take videos;-)

 

 


Compilation CD's!

cdrom Another good idea is to create an audio CD (not an MP3 CD) of songs you would like to learn. Put as many on there as you can, bring the CD to the lesson and I will work the songs out for you and show them to you during the lesson.
