Studio Policy

Before acceptance into the studio, students may request a 15 minute get to know you session.  This is a time for teacher and student to get to know one another and ask any questions that each may have.  This interview is free to the student and is beneficial for all parties.  Upon registering for a regular spot in the studio, there is a one-time Registration fee per family of $40.

Summer 2021 Tuition is as follows: 

25 minute lessons - $160 per month

50 minute lessons - $320 per month

Cost includes 4 lessons per month, a virtual recital (participation is optional) at the end of the semester and all associated administrative costs.  Currently, due to precautions related to Covid-19, all lessons are offered in a remote format, either via FaceTime or Zoom.  I am open to discussing the safety and possibility of in person lessons for beginning students, since I am now fully vaccinated. Each student is responsible for the cost of an accompanist if one is needed for their performance in the end of semester recital.

Students may choose to pay for the entire semester at once or monthly.  Monthly payments are due on the first lesson of each month via Paypal or Venmo.  Even if you pay monthly, lessons are based on a semester system.  If you chose to discontinue lessons in the middle of the semester, you will still be responsible for payment in remaining months.  Payments more than 5 days late will be assessed a charge of $15.00. 

Only lessons canceled with 24 hours advanced notice will be offered a makeup lesson.  Makeup lessons are offered once per month on a date which will be announced at the beginning of the month.  Lessons may only be made up within the semester that the absence occurs.  Lessons canceled within 24 hours will not be made up and no refund will be given.  If you must cancel a lesson within 24 hours, please give me as much notice as possible.

Summer Semester 2021 tuition includes lessons on Mondays or Tuesdays of the following weeks at a mutually agreed upon time:

May 10, 17, 24, 31
June 7, 14, 21, 28
July 5, 19, 26

Recital: Sunday, August 1 @ 3pm Via Zoom

Please come prepared to your lesson each week with a pencil, blank spiral notebook for assignments, any lesson books and a bottle of water for voice lessons.  It is important that you spend time equal to your lesson practicing at least 5 days each week.  If practicing for the full length of time is too much, consider breaking the time up in to smaller chunks throughout the day.

Please check the studio website for updates and account information.  This will be our main mode of communication.  I look forward to working with you this semester!
