Terms & Conditions
Coda Music Centre Terms and Conditions

Coda Music Trust is a registered charity and is non-profit making. It provides a wide range of services and is reliant upon its customers, clients and users to pay their invoices promptly in order to safeguard Coda’s operations. It is managed by a very small, busy and committed administrative team. It does not hold cash reserves; any requirement to chase unpaid debts does put a strain on the organisation. We would really appreciate all our customers therefore settling their bills swiftly. Do get in touch early if you wish to discuss payment issues.

The following clearly sets out our terms and conditions:

Classes start promptly. Please arrive in sufficient time to settle whilst not encroaching too early on other classes taking place. There is a small waiting area where you can make a drink and buy something from the tuck shop.

Practice. Please recognise that regular practice between classes is a key part of learning music and an integral part of your time here. Parents are invited to join the last few minutes of a child’s lesson in order to support their practice.

Smoking. Coda does not permit smoking in the building or on the immediate premises.

Your property. The Trust does not accept liability for loss or damage to any personal possessions. Please ensure you keep all valuables with you. The Centre is a public place – please have regard for your property.

Special needs. Everyone is welcome at Coda regardless of ability. It is a condition of registration that Coda is made aware of any special needs, requirements or medical conditions that may affect your attendance. This includes allergies (such as to nuts).

Car Parking. Vehicles and their contents are left at Coda at the owner’s risk.

Children. Please do not leave children on the Coda site unsupervised at any time.

Photography and Video. From time to time Coda will take photographs or video during classes and activities. These may be used in our publicity and at our website. If you do not wish for your image or your child’s image to be used in this way please tell us.


Payment. Fees are payable on receipt of your invoice. If payment is not received, Coda reserves the right to fill the space with another student from the waiting list. Any fees or deposits paid are non-refundable unless the Centre cancels a course or lesson, except when notice is given (see below).

Invoices for the forthcoming term are issued automatically unless written notice is received of your wish to discontinue lessons. (Please contact the Centre Administrator by the end of half-term if you wish to change your lesson time/day for the new term.)

Payment Types. We accept most payment cards. Cheques should be made payable to Coda Music Trust with name and class details on the back. If paying in cash, please obtain a receipt. This receipt must be produced should there be any query with regard to cash payments. Online payments can be made to the bank details on your invoice.

Notice. Four weeks notice must be given in writing if for any reason you do not wish to continue with your lessons. If notice is not given in writing, a sum equivalent to four weeks fee is charged.

Cancellation. In the unlikely event of the tutor having to cancel your lesson an alternative time may be offered at the tutor’s discretion or the missed lessons will be credited back to you. If for any reason you are unable to attend a lesson, please inform the Centre with as much notice as possible. Missed lessons due to student’s absence are payable at the normal rate.                     


Bursary Scheme. In order to support students who may have difficulty in affording the full cost of lessons or music therapy sessions, Coda Music Trust has set aside limited funds for a bursary scheme. Contact the administrator at Coda, who will give confidential advice on applying for a bursary.
