What's your trick to not losing picks? ๐Ÿ‘ฝ Or is it simply inevitable? Let us know in the comments! ๐Ÿ’ฌ

It's that time of the year! Where I say thank you and good luck to my students who will be moving on to college or university in just a few weeks time!

It means that in September I'll have spaces and spare times to fill!

If you are looking for music lessons to start when the schools go back (or even before!), why not drop me a line and get that job out of the way?

I offer lessons for Guitar, Drums or Saxophone.

**PLEASE SHARE!! I rely on word of mouth and recommendations instead of high levels of paid advertising. This way it keeps my costs (and lesson prices down!). If you know someone who might be interested, give them a shout!**

***POLITE NOTICE TO ALL CUSTOMERS***

"What does a missed lesson really matter?"

Actually, a lot! And as we are now back into the swing of things after lockdowns, I will be implementing my short notice cancellation (or even worse no show) policy.

Over the last year I have been relaxed with this policy, but now is the time I must bring it back into force.

For any lesson booked that is cancelled with less than 24 hours notice, payment in FULL will be required before any further booking will be made. This applies to new and existing customers.

"That's a bit harsh isn't it? Things happen!"

Yes, they do! You might get stuck after hours at work, have an appointment, decided to go out for the day (now the weather is nice). Any number of reasons; but...

..please take the time to read on and see it from the opposite side of the fence.

I take your booking seriously. As a consequence, I may have to arrange child care, turn down another booking, or make arrangements to make sure I can fulfil my obligation to you at that time.

It may be the case that I leave home earlier to get to the studio, or taking time out of the day to make a trip just for your lesson. Either way, there is a family at home without daddy for the time I invest into the trip.

For the booking, I will also make sure I have the room ready (following COVID policy with cleaning), and have equipment ready for you to use, with any music ready to go. This takes time.

Not only am I out of pocket the cost of a lesson, in many cases it has cost me money to get here that I didn't need to spend, either on petrol or child care, and results in wasted trips and time.

So while an instrument might be a bit of fun, no big deal, learning for a bit of a laugh and nothing serious for you or your child - please be mindful what effect cancelling at the last minute, or not showing up, has.

Thank you for reading!

Tom

From Monday 12th April I will be able to take bookings for face to face lessons at the studio.

If you'd like to pick up where you left off, or if you're a new customer, give me a shout and I'll get you booked in!
