Fees, Terms & Conditions 2018




A signed Enrolment Form is required before the first lesson. These can be either emailed to hello@samaramarinelli.com, posted, or returned in person.


  • From January 2018, lessons bought in blocks of 5 or 10 will be charged at $70.00 for a 55 minute hour.

  • For 25 minute lessons bought in blocks of 5 or 10, the fee will be $35.00.

  • For irregular consultations only, the fee will be $80.00 per hour, and $40.00 for 30 minutes. Those who pay cash on the day are considered irregular consults and will be charged accordingly.

  • Fees are set in line with the 2018 recommended rates of the Music Teachers’ Association of Queensland – www.mtaq.org.au


Lessons are stated as a 55 minute hour and 25 minute half hour to enable time to swap over between students and to allow time to talk to parents and students about what was covered in the lesson and what needs to be prepared for the next week.


  • Fees are set at the commencement of the calendar year, with notice given of any fee rise before the conclusion of the final term of the previous year.


  • No GST is charged as of 2018, but this may change at any time. One term’s notice will be given of any GST charges added to the bill.


  • Lessons are invoiced in 5 week blocks, with the exception of occasional lessons, which are charged per session. Payment plans will be discussed with the individual at time of consultation.


  • A student will not be permitted to attend lessons without full payment of fees by the due date on the invoice.


  • Fees are not refundable. Lessons can be transferred to another person.


  • In the event that default of payment of an account occurs, and action is taken to recover the debt, the person responsible for the account shall pay all costs incurred in recovering the debt.


  • Fees may be paid in cash; by personal or bank cheques; or by direct bank deposit. Direct bank deposit is the preferred method. Personal cheques must be cleared before student may commence lessons. Credit card and EFTPOS facilities are not available.


  • For those involved in concert, exam, audition or eisteddfod preparation, rehearsal, exam, entry, accompanist and concert fees are payable separately. These fees will vary depending on the event and the student’s involvement. Fees will be advised prior to each event. Some of these fees are paid directly to Samara Marinelli, and some are paid to a third party.





Please understand that lessons are paid for in advance to reserve a regular spot in my teaching schedule. Unlike people working in other professions I cannot resell that time nor can I create extra teaching time in which to give lessons.


  • In the event that a student is unable to attend a lesson and due notice (see below) has been given, the lesson fee will be carried over to the next week, or an alternative time may be offered if there is a vacancy at a mutually convenient time.


  • If you are unable to attend a lesson for ANY reason, including illness, a minimum of 24 hours notice must be given.


  • Any student cancelling a lesson without a minimum of 24 hours notice will forfeit that lesson and the lesson will be deemed as being taken and fees charged accordingly.


  • A student is only able to postpone/cancel a lesson with notice a maximum of 1 time per term (i.e. school camp). Any more than 1 lesson per term postponed/cancelled outside 24 hours notice will still be charged for. You are booking your time slot over the duration of the term, and this is to ensure that your booked lesson time is kept available for you.


  • Non-attendance at any lesson will be deemed to be an attendance and will be charged accordingly. In the case of late arrival at a lesson, the remainder of the lesson time will be given, but the missed time will not be made up or carried forward.


  • Lessons cancelled or postponed for any and all circumstances by Samara Marinelli will be made up, or carried forward.




  • It is student/parent responsibility to submit any and all entry forms and fees for any extra activities a student may wish to participate. This includes but is not restricted to competitions, exams, eisteddfods, talent quests etc.


  • A student is required to provide all resources for private use outside lessons e.g. instruments, accessories, original sheet music, original songbooks, CDs or recordings for backing music. It is required that all students also supply a music diary, display folder, pencil and eraser which are to be brought to every lesson.



All lessons are by appointment only. Please get in touch to secure a time.
