  2. Lessons need to be paid by the due date indicated on the invoice otherwise they are suspended, a necessary precaution to protect the teacher’s financial security. 
  3. The teacher requires 24 hour notice for lesson cancellation. Unfortunately due to the busy timetable of the teacher, replacement lessons aren’t always available.
