Cancellations require a minimum of 24 hours notification prior to the starting time of the lesson, or no make up lesson will be given. (This policy does not apply in case of evident emergencies).
Only one missed lesson by the student can be made-up during that month. The student needs to arrange an alternative time with the teacher within the same month in order for this to happen. No make-up lesson will be given outside of the same month and also if the teacher has no availability.
The student is responsible for arriving on time for the lesson, tardiness will result in the lesson ending on the time it was originally scheduled.
Tuition is due at the first lesson of the month (bi-monthly/quarterly tuition also acceptable) and it is not refundable.
If a student misses one or more lessons without notice, parents will be notified. Students who chronically miss lessons or cancel on short notice may be asked to leave the studio.
The time of your lesson and date may change from one month to another. This change will be a mutual agreement between the student and the teacher.
If you are too sick to go to school, then you are too sick to attend a voice lesson, so as a courtesy to the teacher, please give plenty of notice if you are unable to attend your regular lesson.
Understanding that your teacher is also a performing artist and may have to reschedule your lesson due to a performance or professional commitment.
Depends on your path and track, students are expected to practice regularly. More information on practicing is listed under FAQ.
It is recommended and to the singer’s advantage to work with a vocal accompanist (pianist), so they can run through their repertoire before a specific performance. This maybe myself or I will give you recommendations.
Parents who are concerned about a student’s practice are encouraged to speak with the teacher. Non-judgmental positive comments like “I like hearing you sing/play” are preferable to comments about the quality of the singing/playing. If necessary, parents may attend some lessons to better understand what the students are learning. For younger piano students, parents are encouraged to attend lessons so they can better assist the students’ practice at home.
Please give four weeks notice before the termination of your lessons, to allow scheduling of other students.
