Starting Piano Lessons at the SE22 Piano School in East Dulwich

Welcome to the SE22 Piano School.

We are delighted to have you on board! Please watch our welcome video from our Head Teacher Lorraine:

At your first lesson your teacher will go through the Terms and Conditions for lessons with you. Your lesson includes time to discuss progress with the teacher so please ask any queries you have at the beginning of the lesson, not the end.

Covid Update for Reopening on April 19th 2021 —-Only the student will be admitted to the building. Parents must remain outside . Hands to be washed on arrival. Students age 11+ to wear masks during the lesson unless exempt.

We are located at 85 Pellatt Road SE229JD. 

Please sign up to our mailing list and agree to the terms and conditions for lessons before attending your first lesson. You will also then receive all the group emails so it’s vital all students opt-in to the mailing list as we cannot add you to it for GDPR data consent reasons. (Mailing list link provided by email).

Term Dates are listed on your invoice and on our website. We are unable to respond to emails asking for term dates. Please check the web site first.

Nb. We cannot swap or refund missed lessons as our timetable is heavily booked without any breaks and your teacher only works set days. Your lesson time is your weekly slot and cannot be altered so please look after it carefully! 

Late payments incur an admin fee of £10. This is automatically added to your next invoice should you pay late. For the smooth running of the piano school, we rely on your cooperation to settle all invoices no later than 5pm on the last Monday of each half term.

How to Contact The Piano School

Please note we do not have a full-time administrator and your teacher will be able to answer all questions about progress, purchasing books, exams and any other music-related queries you may have. Our administrator primarily focusses on issuing invoices and chasing late payments. If you have asked your teacher a question and they cannot answer they will ask our administrator to assist you. The only way to contact the Administrator is the se22pianoschool [ at] address. Remove the [at]. Some of the teachers use a different email to send you the weekly teaching notes. Please do not reply this email as the inbox is not monitored.
