FAQs – SESSION BOOKINGS

Private sessions must be paid for in advance to reserve your time session and teacher. This means BEFORE the day of your session. Not on the day of your session). Payment for the month must be paid for on or by the 1st of the month. For example, for your sessions to be reserved for the month of November, the month's payment must be paid in full before or on the 1st of November. Depending on the day of your session, some months have 4 weeks of lessons, and some have 5 weeks.
Due to the different number of days in the months, in some months you will have 5 sessions. In other months you will have 4.
Your invoice will contain either 4 or 5 lessons for the following month.
If you start midmonth, a prorata amount is used. Example, if there are 2 sessions left in the month, the invoice will be for 2 sessions.

Generally as early as 5 years old is best, however children younger than this (3-4yo) may have excellent focus when learning music. For children younger than 3, the best parents can do is expose children to classical music daily (from 15 minutes to 3 hours). If your child is exposed to music before 5 years of age, the chances of the child having perfect pitch is significantly greater.
If you would like to start lessons for a child younger than 5, contact us for a trial lesson for 30 minutes. Also see Giving Your Baby an Early Advantage.
Yes I recommend this. You may like to take notes throughout to help your child when they do their own practice in their own time.
A common question asked is whether a child should still pursue singing lessons when their voice is breaking (male voice), and how long it will take until the child's voice becomes stable.
It is better to stop training while your child’s voice is breaking because it is like training with an inconsistent instrument. The results are unpredictable and it is frustrating and disheartening. Either have a break, or we can focus on things like music theory and/or sight reading that will help him in the future. We can still do solfeggios which will teach sight singing and pitch.
In terms of how long it takes for a child’s voice to become stable, I can’t answer this. For myself, it took approximately 3 months, but every person is different.
Yes and No. Singing is something you can train. It depends on how much someone has been exposed to music (any genre) and their interests in it, however there are situations where children do not have the ear or ability to sing, no matter how much time and money you throw at the quest. In this case, I do not want to take your hard earned money for a goal that may not be achievable and I will let you know if we think that energy and money should be spent elsewhere.
Unfortunately there are music schools that provide singing lessons for any children and are happy to put a child on stage or in public to sing when they are not ready, or with a song that does not match their vocal range. This is unfair.
Music must build a child or adult’s confidence and they must feel good about singing and feel good about making progress every week. Confidence is priceless and will carry over into everything else the student puts their mind on in life.
Yes this is the most efficient use of your time. I’ll schedule the children one after another.
Yes. It is mandatory when teaching children to have a valid Working With Children Check Number at all times. Additional to this our school requires all teachers must have completed the NSW Office of the Children's Guardian Child Safe eLearning packages and have a police check.
