50% OFF your First Trial Consultation
All new students begin with 50% off their first trial class, preferably in the same time slot as they will prospectively continue in. During this time they will meet their teacher and fellow students and have a chance to gain the full class experience. This helps us to find out more about your child and enables them to get a good feel for what they can expect if they begin singing lessons with us. At the conclusion of the class, the student will be provided with an information and enrolment package to take home and read with their parents before deciding if they’d like to continue.
