Rates & Policies
2013-2014 Rates and Studio Policies
The rates for lessons for this year are as follows:
Payment can be remitted by cash or check prior to or at the time of the lesson.
Regular and flexible lesson plans are available. If you opt for a flexible lesson schedule, you must schedule at least 72 hours prior to the lesson. If there is a special circumstance and you need to schedule a lesson after this deadline, please call me at the studio number (813.263.2673).
If for any reason you wish to cancel an already scheduled lesson, you must email or call me at least 48 hours in advance. Students who habitually "no-show" to a regularly scheduled lesson may lose their timeslot. Students who cancel a flex-plan OR regularly-scheduled lesson with less than 48 hours notice three times in one calendar year will have their registration with me revoked and will no longer be able to schedule lessons at my studio nor be refunded for any pre-paid lessons. The exception to this rule is illness. Please see below.
It is neither productive nor healthy to sing while sick and it is irresponsible to knowingly expose your colleagues to illness. In cold and flu season, a professional vocalist can lose very important opportunities due to a cough and sore throat. Out of consideration to myself and everyone else in the studio, if you feel ill please let me know and stay home to recover. Likewise, if you come to a lesson hoarse or if I have reason to believe you are ill and putting other students at risk, I will send you home immediately. Singing on a hoarse throat is potentially damaging and it's just not a risk we need to take!
