Pricing & Payments

Payment for NMPAT activities is due at the start of each school term (September, January, April) and our preferred method of payment is ParentPay.  For those in financial need, support is available to help with the cost of membership of County Ensembles and Saturday Centres.  We also offer bursaries, administered by the Gordon Robinson Memorial Trust, and additional subsidies dependent on need and funds available.

More information on how to apply for support can be found further down this page.

Payment is due at the start of each term (September, January, April) or on the day of the first lesson.

We do not issue invoices as standard practice but you will receive a reminder email during the month that payment is due (September, January and April).  Any subsequent reminder emails will be treated as an invoice and incur a £20 administration fee.

Payments for the 2023-2024 academic year can be accepted from Monday 14th August.

In order to keep costs down, our preferred method of payment is by ParentPay.

For County Ensemble membership and individual tuition, an account will be created, and login details sent to you.  If you also attend a Saturday Centre and would like payment for this to be added to your account, please contact the main office with the name of the student and the Centre they attend:

For all other payments please use the ParentPay Shop.  It is also possible to purchase concert tickets and pay for exams (where the entry has been made by an NMPAT teacher) using the ParentPay Shop.

We can accept card payments in the office or over the phone, and standing orders are available to those with annual costs of over £350. Please contact the office for an application form:

As a registered charity, NMPAT is able to benefit from Gift Aid on subscriptions for County Ensembles and Saturday Centres. For parents agreeing to this, we can reclaim Gift Aid relief on subscriptions for these activities.

We will have asked you to do this at the time of registration, but if you did not sign a form, you can complete the online form linked below.  Members of County Ensembles can also opt in on your iPresto account.

Please note that the person signing the Gift Aid declaration needs to be the person who makes the payments for the subscriptions.  If at any time you cease to be a UK Taxpayer, change your name or address, or no longer wish to participate in the scheme, please contact the NMPAT Office:

Some schools have asked us to operate a Direct Billing of Parents Scheme, which means that payment for lessons is made, by parents, directly to NMPAT.

Payment is due in advance of each 11-week payment period and can be made via our online system, iPresto, where your card payment will be processed by WorldPay – please use the link below:

If you need to discuss potential arrangements for payment terms, please contact the NMPAT office:

Please ensure you have read and agree to the terms and conditions between NMPAT and parents of children receiving music lessons billed directly by NMPAT, available on our policies page.

The terms state that:

  • in the event of wishing to discontinue lessons, you will give a minimum of five weeks’ notice, in writing, to NMPAT, using the email address above
  • no refund of fees will be due to you for notice given within term
