The agreement is valid for at least one year. When cancelled within this period the full amount has to be payed, unless unforeseen circumstances make this not fair (moving, lengthy illness and other circumstances, to judgement of the teacher).
In between cancellation is only possible in special circumstances. In between cancelation by the teacher is possible when it becomes evident that the pupil has to little talent to succesfully participate in the educational program and because of that on advice of the teacher no longer goes through taking lessons.
Lessons that end in the summer holidays, must be said to end at least one week after the annual Pupil's concert in juli. This has to be done in writing. When the teacher concerned has not received a cancellation one week after the Pupil's concert, the teaching contract is autonatically prolonged untill the end of the next course year.

When the teacher is longer than two weeks ill a substitute teacher will be asked to take over the lessons.
When lessons cannot be given due to illness or absency of the pupil or due to illness of the teacher they are not given at some other time. Lessons that cannot be given due to absency of the teacher, other than mentioned in 5) are given at another time.
