Rates & Policies
My teaching year is divided into two semesters. A monthly payment reserves your spot in my studio and covers other items such as lesson preparation, repertoire research, and recital preparation.
|Semester 1 – Fall 2022||Semester 2 - Spring 2023|
|11 Weeks (September – December)||20 weeks (January – June)|
|2 Flex weeks||3 Flex weeks|
|Monthly payments (4)||Monthly payments (6)|
|Limit of 2 lesson credits||Limit of 3 lesson credits|
For most students, I strongly recommend a weekly lesson as the best way to make consistent progress. For more advanced students and professional singers or where a weekly lesson isn’t possible, occasional lessons can be booked when my schedule allows.
No refunds will be given for missed or cancelled lessons.
If you find yourself unable to attend a lesson, you may be issued lesson credits at the discretion of the instructor. Lesson credits can be redeemed in the flex weeks at the end of each semester. Lesson credits will only be issued if I am notified of the absence at least 24 hours in advance. No credits will be given for lessons missed with less than 24 hours notice.
An exception to the 24 hour policy will be made in the case of illness, provided the student notifies us by 9am the day of the lesson. Lessons cancelled due to illness still count toward the limits on lesson credits outlined above. No Lesson credit will be issued if the student is unable to attend because a parent or sibling of the student is ill.
No lesson credit will be issued for lessons missed due to bad weather. If you are unable to attend your lesson because of the weather, I can arrange to do the lesson at your usual time via Zoom, or arrange a phone call to discuss your progress.
In addition to teaching, I maintain an active performing schedule. Although I try to keep conflicts to a minimum, this may mean I have to reschedule your lesson from time to time. We will try my best to find another time that works for you. If no suitable time can be found, a lesson credit will be issued to be redeemed during the flex weeks. This credit will not count toward your limit for the semester.
