2014 03 05 keyboard and clef iStock_000002846481SmallWe give comprehensive piano tuition for an annual fee. We expect students to pay 1/12 of this each month on the date of their first lesson (so if the first lesson is 7th May fees are due 7th May, 7 June, 7 July and so on)

We would expect to give 45 lessons in the year, subject to your availability.

Below are the fees based on weekly 30 minute lessons. Longer lesson times are calculated pro-rata.

Currently the annual fee is £840. ( which works out at £18.67/ lesson)

From January 2022 fees are as shown below

Lessons with Alex Radu £900 per year paid by £75 per month (which works out at £20 per lesson)

Lessons with Lester Hough

  • for all  existing students (as of Dec 2021) the fees will be £936 per year paid by £78 per month (which works out at £20.80 per lesson)
  • for all new students starting after 01/01/2022 students  £1260 per year paid by £105 per month (which works out at £28 per lesson)

Opening schedule

In a normal year, Hull Piano School will close for

  • 2 weeks over Christmas
  • 1 week over Easter
  • and 2 weeks in the summer

leaving a potential 47 weeks when normal teaching will be available.

This allows for a student to take a further two weeks off in the year.

Missed lessons

If clients miss more lessons than this, extra lessons to make up the difference will be at the discretion of the Music School. And, while they cannot be guaranteed, every effort will be made to put in replacement lessons. Due to the tightness of the timetable in term time, these extra lessons will be usually be slotted into school holiday periods.

If students go away for a longer period, their lesson slot will only be kept open for their return with the continuation of the monthly fee. In this situation, it cannot be guaranteed that all the missing lessons will be able to be scheduled in.


Extras may include fees for exams, competition entries or the cost of books.  For exams and competitions, payment must be made before the submission dates.
