This is different for all children and teachers. We make sure we do the 36 lessons per year. When you’re going on holiday, you can let the teacher know as soon as possible. The teachers also let you know when they are having their holidays.

Do I need to pay during the holidays, or if my child is sick/not able to make the lesson?

No, you only pay for the given lessons, also if your child is sick (or not able to make it). Please let us know at least 48 hours before the lesson starts and you don’t have to pay for your lesson.

When can I have my lessons?

This will be coordinated in consultation with you and the teacher. Due to the large time differences between the different parts of the world, there are daytime, evening, and weekend classes. When you apply for a trial lesson is desirable if you mention a number of available days and times on which you are available to have the lesson.

Which days can I choose for my lessons?

You can choose every day of the week.

You can make a proposal for a day and time on which you would like to have lessons. It is advisable to mail a few suggestions for days and times because of our availability.
