Lessons throughout school life Lessons can carry on all through 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 want to stop hiring an instrument e.g. if your child now has their own, please let the Music Service teacher and Durham Music Service know by emailing [email protected] If you want to stop your child’s lessons, please let the Music Service teacher and Durham Music Service know by emailing [email protected] You need to tell us that your child wants to stop lessons or that you no longer need to hire an instrument before we send you the invoice for the term. You will get 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). If you don't tell us you want to stop lessons in time you might still have to pay the fees. If you stop lessons/hire part way through a term you will still need to pay the normal fee for lessons for the whole term.
