Piano Books for Young Beginners
Your teacher is your first point of contact for all queries. The admin email is only used to enrol new students. Going forwards, please discuss any issues with your teacher at the start of the lesson. They will contact us if they cannot assist with your enquiry.
Terms and Conditions for Lessons:
- We do not reschedule or refund missed lessons as we operate the same terms as a private school
- Your lesson time remains the same for the academic year
- A supply teacher will be used if your teacher is not available
- In the case of lockdown, lessons will be online. No refund or carrying over of lessons is allowed so please ensure you are able to attend Zoom lessons before you enrol for lessons.
- Late payment of an invoice incurs a £10 administration charge. We reserve the right to give away your space if payment is not received after issuing one reminder.
- Your teacher is the first point of contact for all queries. They will contact our admin team on your behalf if they are unable to assist you.
Your teacher is always your first point of contact for all queries about piano lessons, scholarships, exams etc. Most parents see their teacher every week but if you do not drop your child to lessons, then please use the school Gmail account below.
If you have any personal contact details for your teacher, please do not use these as the only contact method is se22pianoschool @ gmail.com. We aim to answer all emails within 3 working days or at your next lesson, whichever comes sooner.
This week one of the teachers was abroad at a family funeral and one parent was contacting her and our head teacher multiple times by all sorts of different methods (email and phone) just because they forgot to ask something non-urgent that could easily have waited until next week’s lesson.
Please respect that we all have the need for personal space and time away from work especially during a time of bereavement.
We are a small team of teachers that work part-time at the school and we all have other jobs, family commitments and a long commute to East Dulwich for our shift as none of us live in the area.
We thank you in advance for helping with the smooth running of the piano school.
