Berkshire Maestros Job Opportunities Berkshire Music Hub

Term Dates 2018 - 2019

Over the academic year we will offer 33 instrumental/vocal lessons to tuition students. Members of music centre ensembles will attend up to 30 ensemble sessions throughout the year. Where Berkshire Maestros needs to cancel a lesson individual teachers will arrange a catch up lesson (under our terms and conditions), usually towards the end of term. Please check lesson and music centre ensemble timetables for exact dates specific to your teacher and/or ensemble. For county ensemble and Academy sessions please see your specific schedule.

Missed lessons

Lessons missed by pupils due to short term sickness, school trips/activities, revision leave, exams etc. will not be made up or credited. When 5 or more consecutive sessions are missed in the same term due to illness/injury we will credit a maximum of 5 lessons. A medical certificate may be required. When staff miss a session due to illness or travel delay they will do their best to make the session up (e.g. through an extra lesson or a double lesson). Credits cannot be given for termly membership fees.
When a school cancels a lesson we will endeavour to make up the lesson provided that a minimum of 48 hours notice has been received from the school. In the event of an emergency or closure of a school (full or partial) or music centre due to an event outside Maestros control (e.g. a pandemic, flooding, heavy snow or industrial action) sessions will not be made up or credited.
