To avail of this discount, please drop by the school office or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, the concert that you would like to attend, and the subject, day and time of your lesson or course. We will give you a discount code, which you should then provide when booking online, by phone or in person. A maximum of four tickets per student per concert may be purchased under this scheme.
