A FULL SERVICE AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE

pricing

At the Academy we have designed an outstanding performing arts program that gives parents a full service yet remains affordable with our weekly payment methods. The major association for instrumental and vocal teachers, the Tasmanian Music Teachers Association, recommends an individual lesson is $70 an hour per week.

By packaging our pricing, we can offer a 2-hour performance class and 30 minute solo lesson for just $59 per week. Not only does this make our program affordable, but we go above and beyond by supplying sheet music, practice recordings and costumes when appropriate. We don’t charge for extra rehearsals or performances and we provide a huge variety of performance opportunities in front of ‘real’ audiences.

One of the questions parents often ask is whether its possible to do a trial class before commencing at ExitLeft.

We don’t generally offer trial sessions, as students cannot get a feel for our performing arts program after just one week. It takes at least three weeks for kids to feel comfortable with their classmates, teachers, and to develop enough confidence to join in. If forced to make a decision after just one or two contact hours, you may find your son or daughter decides not to give the class another go.

Instead, we have a generous cancellation policy, which requires just two weeks’ notice in writing for withdrawal from the Academy. We believe that learning performing arts and music is something that takes time and our students will often study with us for many years. Trialling a class for four or five weeks is a great way to determine if we are the perfect place for your child.
