Terms Of Business

Updated 24th September 2020

At Musical Allsorts we aim to provide all of our students with the highest quality music tuition, delivered in a fun, inspiring and enjoyable way. The terms of business have been developed to help the continued smooth running of our schools and to allow us to protect everyone that attends our lessons, our staff and the company.

Musical Allsorts is a limited company, registered to No1 Priestner Buildings, Helsby, United Kingdom. WA6 OAD. Its company registration number is 12903362

It is expected that all students will arrive promptly for their lessons with all necessary tuition books and material required for each lesson.

It is expected that all books and sheet music recommended to the students by the tutor should be bought within an agreed time scale. 

Food and drinks are not permitted in the teaching studios other than for Vocal sessions where we advise all student to bring a sealed bottle of water.

Smoking is not allowed anywhere on the premises.

All Parents/Carers must agree to our Covid19 consent form which will be made available to them via an online link and on the day of their 1st lesson.

All mobile phones must be on silent and placed away during lessons.

Musical Allsorts staff are not responsible for the safety of any student before or after their allocated class time or during any period of time where the student is absent from the class (e.g toilet visits). 

It is expected that the parents or carers of all junior students will escort them to the sign in desk and wait outside the building till the lesson is completed, unless it is essential for the child’s wellbeing and has been agreed in advance with a member of the Musical Allsorts management team.

To avoid distraction to students any parent/carer that is waiting will be asked to remain quiet during the lesson.

In order to promote independence, avoid unnecessary disturbance to classes and allow teaching staff to create a highly effective and quality educational experience, parents and carers of junior students are requested to encourage their child to attend unattended.


Your child’s teacher will provide plenty of opportunity for you to observe progress at our regular performance events, assessments and “open class” demonstrations.


All students will be given homebased development tasks by their tutor during each class. It is expected that students will endeavour to complete all practice and work set in each lesson prior to their next lesson to avoid disruption to lesson plans.

When the lesson has finished, tutor will bring the child to the sign in desk when the lesson is completed. If the parents or carers are running late for collection the child may stay in the sign in area.

Parents and Carers are expected to provide a suitable instrument and /or additional equipment appropriate for their child’s level at home. Please ask a member of staff should you require any advice or assistance in this area.
