Terms and conditions for private music lessons



I issue contracts for teaching, a standard agreement prepared by the Incorporated Society of Musicians. Students sign up for a series of lessons, to which both they and I are committed. Cheques should be made payable to Fergus Black within ten days. Exam and Competition fees, purchase of music, and the provision of pencils and rubbers, are additional.

Missed Lessons

Please try not to miss lessons: if you are ill or working, please give me notice if you can. I would prefer to re-arrange missed lessons, but if we can’t agree a mutually convenient time, I reserve the right to charge.

Singers Exams

If I accompany singers in exams and auditions, I will charge for it, as if it were a lesson.


I teach during Peterborough school terms. If I take other breaks, I’ll let you know as far in advance as I can.


Parents must accompany children 16 and under, and wait through the lesson.
