  1. Pay by Credit/Debit Card

You may pay using PayPal (PayPal account or credit card), or by credit/debit card (using Square). You may use these payment methods to pay directly from your invoice which will be enabled to take your payment.


  1. Pay by Bank Transfer

Name of Account: HMDT Music

Account Number:  00005992

Sort Code:  40-52-40

Please make the payment reference your invoice number. It is ESSENTIAL you do this, as we have no other way of identifying payments made this way.


  1. Pay by Direct Debit

HMDT Music offers two ways to pay your Saturday Programme fees by Direct Debit. You can either:a) pay your fees once per term at the end of the current term for the following term – this is a similar pattern to paying your fees any other way, but means that you don’t have to remember to do it at the end of each term because they will be taken from your bank account automatically OR b) pay your fees in three monthly instalments per term, starting at the end of the previous term –  For example, to pay a full ICS! Minis 1 fee (e.g. £231.00) for the Summer Term in this way, would mean that you paid in the following instalments:


March    £77.00 (end of Spring Term)

April       £77.00

May        £77.00


Payments are usually taken on the first working day on or after the 16th of each month, and you will receive a letter detailing your collection schedule each term.

  • If you would like to set up a Direct Debit, please contact the office on 020 8882 8825 or saturday.programme@hmdtmusic.org.uk
  • Please be aware that Direct Debits need to be set up well in advance of the payment deadline, and a whole term in advance if you want to pay in three instalments, so if you need to pay your fees for the following term soon, please use an alternative payment method to make the payment.


  1. Paying by Cash

Unfortunately we cannot accept payment by cash except under special circumstances, please contact the office if you do not have a valid bank account or other means of payment.


We cannot take childcare vouchers as payment, and please do not make payment through a personal Paypal Account unless you go through the Payment form above first.



Membership must be paid in three instalments for the year by the indicated due dates for you to retain your membership

You may receive an invoice for your fees as a courtesy, but please note that you must pay your fees by the deadline whether or not you have received an invoice.
  • If you miss this deadline, you will be liable for either a late fee if your child is continuing at the Saturday Programme, or a percentage of the fees (determined by when you make the payment) if your child is not continuing at the Saturday Programme. Full details of our payment policies can be found in our online handbook HERE.
  • If you know that you are going to have difficulty paying, please contact us IN ADVANCE rather than leaving it until you have missed the deadline. Financial Aid is available to help those in need of assistance with the fees.
