Instrumental Contract 2017/18

1. If you are studying a music course with a performance module:

  • A Level Music
  • BTEC Extended Diploma in Music Technology
  • BTEC Jazz
  • BTEC Rock & Popular Music
  • BTEC Extended Diploma in Performing Arts

You will be provided with half price instrumental lessons on one instrument. The College undertakes to provide 22 instrumental half-hour lessons over the course of the year.

Payment is as follows:

Either £240 in one advance payment due by 18th September 2017 or two instalment payments of £120 to be paid by 18th September 2017 for the Autumn Term and 30th November 2017 for the Spring and Summer terms. Please note you are signing up for 22 lessons and will not be entitled to a refund if you decide to stop attending lessons mid-year. 

2. If you are a non-music student, or if you wish to study more than one instrument, you will need to pay. 

Payment is as follows:

Either £480 in one advance payment due by 18th September 2017 or two instalment payments of £240 to be paid by 18th September 2017 for the Autumn Term and 30th November 2017 for the Spring and Summer terms. Please note you are signing up for 22 lessons and will not be entitled to a refund if you decide to stop attending lessons mid-year. 

3. Instrumental lessons will not start unless payment is received in advance.

4. The instrumental lessons are part of your academic timetable and any absence from these lessons will be treated equally as seriously as absence from any other lessons. An absence note or phone call will be expected in case of illness. 
If you are a Music student and in receipt of free lessons  the College may charge you if absences are unauthorised.
Re-arrangement of lessons because of absence is a matter between you and your instrumental teacher.

5. If you miss three consecutive lessons (without authorisation), your instrumental tuition will be cancelled.

If you have paid for lessons and this occurs, you will be charged for the remainder of the year. In exceptional circumstances an appeal can be made to the Head of Music.

6. In cases of genuine hardship students may apply to the College Fund or to the Alton College Foundation who award bursaries, as part of their ongoing commitment to supporting students in achieving high standards
