Sorry really just need to get my frustration out on this but due to the local council budget cuts music lessons in schools are suffering my lesson costs have basically been doubled a year which means that I'll probably no longer be able to take lessons in violin
I don't see why music should have to suffer in schools because of these budget cuts they've already gotten rid of all percussion lessons in the area due to cuts what's next no lessons at all?
Don't forget that this is precisely why private teachers exist.
You don't have to have lessons in school, you can have them privately.
Of course, what you may well find is that the new school lesson prices still undercut private teachers massively.
In which case they're still a bargain, just not the massively huge bargain that they were.
And if they don't undercut, then go private, you'll get personal attention and probably a much nicer learning room than a school cupboard...
You have choice over and above throwing it all away.
Look at the options
