Studio Policies

Payment:

For students whose Lesson times and days are held for as regularly scheduled, Payment is requested in advance for the month.  Exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis, but payment must be received in advance of each lesson. 


Cancellations:

I will offer future makeup dates and times for student-cancelled 24 hrs or more in advance lessons.

If I have to cancel a lesson, then I will do my best to offer accommodating makeup dates or offer a credit toward a future lesson. 

As always, I will continue to try to offer alternative time slots the same week, but as time slots fill up, this is not always possible.


Practicing:  

Consistent daily practice is essential to success when you are developing your voice. To help develop self-discipline and good work habits, a regular time for practice should be set aside each day.
 
Recording Lessons:
I encourage every student to record their lessons. This is a wonderful way to evaluate your progress and organize your weekly practice sessions. I will make practice tapes for students, as necessary, in order to facilitate daily practice.
 
Waiting List:  
I have set up a waiting list for those of you who have not yet been able to secure a regular time slot. As time slots become available I will refer to the waiting list, and schedule lessons accordingly. If you are currently on the waiting list and unable to secure a regular time slot please consider joining the studio Voice Class. The class is a great introduction to vocal technique and performance opportunities and will prepare you for a time slot as they becomes available.

Dismissal: 
Students will be dismissed from the studio for nonpayment, lack of preparation, perpetual cancelations and practice, or behavior unbecoming a professional artist.
 
Scheduling: 
Lessons will be scheduled by the semester. There will be three semesters in the year; Fall, Spring and Summer. Please make sure that your schedule is able to accommodate the studios semester schedule.

Arrivals and Departures: 
Please plan to arrive and enter the studio on the hour of your designated time slot. Please do not knock early. Lessons are often scheduled back-to-back both in person and virtually. It is distracting when students enter while another student is taking their lesson. 

Waiting Area: 
Feel free to wait on the front porch or in your car. If your are interested in the using the internet I will provide you with the password.
