Stopping lessons Lessons continue throughout your child’s school career, our teachers often work with children through primary, secondary and sixth form. Lessons do not stop automatically at the end of the school year or if your child moves school e.g. to secondary school. If you wish to stop your child’s lessons please let the Music Service teacher and Durham Music Service know in writing (letter or email). Notice of termination of tuition/hire must be received at the 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.
