2021 - 2022 Rates and Studio Policies
Due to Co-Vid 19, lessons are now available remotely via Zoom, Skype or WhatsApp in addition to in person lessons. Please be sure to have a quiet space (room) where you are able to connect securely (good internet strength) through video conference.
The rates for lessons for this year are as follows:
Payment can be remitted by Venmo, cash or check prior to or at the time of the lesson.
Students may enroll during either of the following seasons for lessons: the school year (August - May) or the summer (June - July). Students enroll for 36 lessons during the school year and any number during the Summer. Lessons can be paid one of two ways: per year (August - May) or per month. A per lesson option is also available without an enrollment commitment. Lessons from August - May can be paid in full. Payments received by the second week of August will receive a 5% discount.
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 time slot. Students who cancel a 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!
