You must have attained at least a Grade 8 from either the Associated Board of the Royal School of Music (ABRSM) or Trinity College London (TCL) for both Theory and Practical.

Lesson Fee

100% of the first month’s fee from the client/student will be paid to The Company as commission through internet banking or ATM transfer before the first lesson commence. Hence, teachers will only receive the lessons fees payments on the 2nd month directly from the client/student.

Teachers will be held responsible in providing an advance notice of 2 days, prior to their first lesson, to The Company should they decide to forgo the appointed assignment.

The lesson fee to The Company will also stand even if the client/student decides to prematurely terminate the assignment before the end of the first month.

The lesson fee will still be payable by the teacher if the premature termination by the client/student is discovered to be due to improper conduct by the teacher such as being late frequently. If the client/student request for a change of teacher after the first lesson, the teacher will only be entitled to 50% of the first lesson.

Verification of Qualifications

Teachers will be required to bring all their necessary certificates for verification purposes by the client/student on the very first lesson, should the client request for it.

Disclaimer
