Terms and Conditions


We provide lessons on the T&C which take effect at the time of booking. If you book more than one lesson at the same time, the T&C at the time of booking will apply to each lesson booked at that time. In return for the payment of the lesson cost and booking fee

we provide you with a lesson by the Instructor notified at the time of booking unless otherwise notified by us.

The T&C may be varied at any time subject to giving you reasonable notice via the website.

If you continue to book lessons after the date on which any changes to the T&C take effect, you will be deemed to have agreed to such changes.


You must book all Lessons through the Booking Agent either via the Call Centre on 04 8899 1684, or by email using the form in contact page.

Any bookings made directly with an Instructor will be of no effect until you have notified the call center and the booking agent has confirmed that booking.

If an Instructor provides you with a lesson which has not been booked through the booking agent, you agree that the T&C apply to that lesson as if you had booked the lesson through the booking agent.

Cancellation, non-attendance or the rescheduling of a booking will incur the following charges:

Refunds in this circumstance will be assessed on a case by case scenario.
