How do we stop taking lessons? If you wish to stop your child's lessons please contact us via email or write a letter to Durham Music Service. Notice of termination of tuition/hire must be received by Durham Music Service before the invoice for the following term is issued. You will receive an invoice in September, December and April so you must let us know by the last day of the month before (i.e. August, November, March) or the fees for the following term will be payable. If you discontinue lessons/hire part way through a term you will still be required to pay the remaining payments on your issued invoice.
