Eccleston (PR7) Lesson Fees
Fees are about to increase. Please watch this space.
INCREASE in FEES:
Lesson fees from 1st September 2021:
online (eg Skype or FaceTime):
£14.50 up to 3.30pm.
£15.50 from 3.30pm onwards.
Bradley Lane, Eccleston (offered once again)
£15.50 up to 3.30pm weekdays.
£16.50 from 3.30pm onwards & Saturdays.
Other lesson lengths [eg 40 minutes] by negotiation.
Exam fees are set by the various exam bodies and not myself.
Currently I do not charge extra for exam preparation.
Exam fees (whether for theory, piano or keyboard exams) are payable by the applicant (ie the teacher normally; pupils are referred to as 'candidates') to whichever exam boards are involved. If a teacher has 5 entrants, it makes admin easier (and cheaper) for the exam board if it receives just one cheque/online payment from that teacher instead of 5 separate payments. This keeps exam fees down a bit, which is good news!
If theory is studied in addition to practical, I do not charge extra. My policy is to charge for time. If more time is required, only then do I charge extra.

The ISM has released the result of their survey of UK music teachers and their fees - you will see that I remain highly competitive; probably too competitive!
