FREE TRIAL LESSONS

  • We offer one free trial per child in a class of their choosing, providing there is availability in the class.

  • Parents must provide us with contact, identification and health details as requested so that we can assume responsibility for their child during the lesson.

  • If a child refuses to take part in the lesson, one further free trial lesson may be arranged at our discretion.

 

FEES AND PAYMENT
