Terms & Conditions of Service

At-School Lessons

The following Terms and Conditions of Erick Gerber Guitar Lessons apply to all education-based services provided by the guitar teacher (hereinafter referred to as the “Teacher”). The Agreement is between the Teacher and the person responsible for the guitar student’s account, identified hereinafter as the “Client”.

Guitar Lessons

  • Guitar lessons occur once every week for the allocated lesson length 30 minutes per lesson.

  • Guitar lessons occur throughout the year, except during school holiday periods.

  • The recurring day & time of the guitar lessons must be agreed to in writing by both parties.

  • The guitar lessons shall occur weekly on the same day and time until the Client or Teacher specifically requests, in writing, for the lesson day and time to change and this change is approved by the other party.

  • There will be no guitar lesson on a particular week where the guitar lesson falls on an official New Zealand public holiday. This includes public holidays specific to the Northland region.


  • The Client agrees to pay for a full school term (10 weeks) of lessons at a time. Payments must be made before this school term begins.

  • Payments are made for the school term ahead. (E.g. Term 2’s guitar lessons shall be paid before the first day that Term 2 begins.)

  • If a student wishes to start guitar lessons after the school term has already commenced, they will be invoice pro-rata. In this case, lessons will only commence once payment has been made and Proof of Payment has been sent to the Teacher.

  • The Client has no obligation to continue guitar lessons after the end of a school term and the Teacher shall send the Client an invoice for each new school term before the term commences.

  • If an invoice has not been paid by the starting day of the term, the Teacher shall not be liable to carry out any guitar lessons until the payment has been made and Proof of Payment has been sent to the Teacher.

  • The Client may discontinue guitar lessons at any time but shall not receive a refund for any invoice which has already been paid. E.g. if a Client wishes to discontinue halfway through any school term, they may choose to finish attending guitar lessons or not, but shall not receive a refund either way. (Please see “Lesson Cancellations” below for more.)

  • All payments are made in NZD (New Zealand Dollars).

Lesson Cancellations

  • If the student cannot attend any given week’s guitar lesson for any reason, more than 48 hours’ notice must be given by the Client to the Teacher. Genuine medical emergencies, nationwide emergencies, region-wide emergencies, or natural disasters are exceptions to this rule.

  • If the Client fails to notify the Teacher of non-attendance less than 48 hours in advance, the Client shall not be entitled to a refund nor credit of the lesson.

  • If the lesson cancellation notice is less than 48 hours, the Teacher may, at his sole discretion, choose to arrange a catch-up lesson with the student.

  • If a lesson cancellation notice is given more than 48 hours in advance, the Teacher is required to either arrange a catch-up lesson with the student or to partially refund the Client if no catch-up lesson was possible. The refund amount shall be equal to the value of 1 guitar lesson (e.g. $37.50 refundable per lesson for 30-minute lessons).

  • If the Teacher himself cancels a lesson, the above point also applies.

By selecting “I accept the Terms & Conditions of using this service” on any of the Application Forms found at the URLs below, (or by written confirmation via email or text) the Client hereby agrees to these Terms & Conditions of Service.
