  • a relief teacher may give the lesson, or
  • lessons will be made up by the teacher.

The scheduled lesson will only be changed by the teacher or the Music School in extenuating circumstances (e.g. teacher illness, teacher, university timetable change, professional development/performance)

In the case of student absence, a teacher is not obliged to offer a make-up lesson; however, the teacher may offer a make-up if a suitable time slot is available. Please discuss the possibility of a make-up lesson with your teacher.

Please note: if attending at any external school venue:

In the case of teacher illness/absence:

  • a relief teacher may give the lesson, or
