Entertainment Books – Fundraising

This year we are fundraising by selling The Entertainment Books. You will be given a book to look through at the beginning of term. The book features many of the area’s best restaurants, cafes, hotel accommodation, attractions and activities … all with valuable 25% to 50% off and 2 for 1 offers. All funds raised will go towards the cost of various events and concerts we run throughout the year. Last year the money we raised went towards the cost of our enormous gathering drum and has brought a smile to the face of many children.

Purchase an Entertainment Book for just $65.00 and receive over $15,000 worth of valuable offers that you and your family can use all year until June, 2016! We receive $13 for every book sold.

If you don’t want the book or would prefer the digital copy please return the book to me, make sure it is in the envelope with your name on it or attach a note with your name.

Cancellation and Absentee Policy

Missed lessons will not be refunded, but a make up lesson may be done on another day if there is availability in a different class. All make up lessons must be taken within the term with a maximum of 3 make up lessons each term. If you are in one of the keyboard or guitar classes you can e-mail me to find out which pages of the book we covered.

If lessons are cancelled within the first two weeks of booking, no cancellation fee applies, but those two lessons must be paid for. However, after this period, a booking and administration fee of $30 will be incurred in addition to the fees for lessons up to the time of cancellation. All cancellations must be to me either in person, by phone or e-mail.

If you ever have any questions or worries please let me know. In the meantime take heart in knowing that early childhood music is one of the most beneficial things you can do with your child.
