Studio POLICIES

Scheduling

The studio operates on a quadrimester schedule.in much the same manner as study at a college, or university school of music. 

Weekly 1-hour lessons scheduled for the same day/time ensures your steady progress as a singer. 

 

Tuition 

Your paid tuition guarantees your 1-hour lesson time is reserved for you each week.  Quality education is never inexpensive.  You can undoubtedly find cheaper lessons, if that's your priority.  But, if you are serious about becoming the best singer you can be you won't find better training than I will provide.  Guaranteed!

Tuition is $1,200 per quadrimester.  Tuition may be paid in full, or in four automatic monthly installments of $300. 

Note: Under no circumstances is tuition refundable, or transferable.

Attendance

Select your lesson time thoughtfully to avoid conflicts as no credit, make up, or rescheduling of any kind is given for lessons missed, or canceled by you for any reason.  No exceptions.

If a bonafide emergency, or contagious illness arises, you may request to be put on a 3-week cancellation list. If a fellow student cancels during that time period, you will be notified of the opportunity to take their time. First come, first served. No guarantee is implied, or given..

If I am unable to teach, or must cancel a normally scheduled lesson, it will be made up.

The 2020 quadrimesters are:

  • January 1st - April 30th  (Spring Break April 13 - 19)

  • May 1st - August 31st (Closed July 4 - 10)

  • September 1st - December 31st (Thanksgiving Break Nov. 20 - 26, & Christmas Dec. 24 - 25)  

Swap List Guidelines:

For those who wish to participate and agree to the dissemination of their contact information to fellow students, a Swap List is available on the secure Student Resources page.

If you know you are going to miss a scheduled lesson you may try to arrange a swap with a fellow student. It is your sole responsibility to negotiate the swap and to notify me by email if you arrange a swap.

 

All swaps must be arranged between parents if either student is a minor.

If there is confusion, and two students show up for the same lesson, I will teach the student whose lesson is normally at that time. The other student will not receive consideration of any kind.
