I wonder if I could put a general question to you teachers (and any others, of course):

1) Student goes to new (piano) teacher and teacher agrees to give a block of 4 weekly lessons to see how things progress.

2) Student pays teacher for all the lessons in advance.

3) After 2 lessons the student decides this is not the teacher that he wants and gives notice that he wants to leave straight away (ie only having 2 lessons).

4) But according to the teachers terms and conditions (which student has agreed to) a "notice to discontinue tuition is required in lieu of fees prior to 4 lessons remaining."

5) But also in the terms and conditions the teacher "reserves the right to cease to offer tuition without notice."

So it would appear that if the student stops after 2 lessons then he cannot ask for a refund BUT the teacher may stop tuition at any time (I assume that if the teacher stops tuition after the 2nd lesson then a refund of 2 lesson will be payable.)

Is this correct ? As the teacher can discontinue at any time, why can't the student ? Is the student entitled to a refund of 2 lessons as he only has had 2 and paid for 4?

Thanks for any comments....
