TRIAL LESSON and BLOCK DISCOUNT 

A student can arrange an INITIAL TRIAL LESSON at full rate before booking a block.

If a block is purchased (prepaid in full) WITHIN TWO WEEKS of the initial trial lesson, the trial lesson is considered the first lesson of that block and its fee is deducted from the total discounted cost of the lesson block.
