Welcome To Our Eighth Newsletter!
1st January 2015
Happy New Year! Hope you all enjoyed the Christmas and New Year holidays – we did! Thank you also to those who gave us Christmas presents, it’s really lovely to feel appreciated.
We’re looking forward to seeing you all as we return to our usual teaching timetable the week beginning Monday 5th January 2015.
- We now have our new Skype timetable available to take on new pupils and to transfer old pupils onto Skype. This will give all pupils the opportunity not to miss their weekly lessons due to bad weather or ill health. The advantages far outweigh the disadvantages for online music tuition – especially when it comes to avoiding colds, flu or sickness bugs going around!
- We will still teach the few pupils who attend our house who might find Skype difficult, especially those with special needs.
- For those who would like to try our Skype lessons, why not try alternating with your regular lesson? This is a very useful and a helpful way to let you iron out any teething problems regarding the internet etc.
Price of Skype Lessons
Skype lesson prices are the same as you already pay for your lessons at our house, so no extra charges, no driving through traffic and no petrol costs too, saving you time and money! It’s simple, quick and easy to book and pay online – at least 24 hours before please. We can even send you a text reminder a few hours before your Skype lesson is due to start!
Remember you pay the same price on Skype as you do now.
