Lesson Policies 2023-2024
Missed Lesson Policy – Enrolling in lessons is a purchase of teacher and studio time and as a courtesy to the teacher 24-hour’s notice should be given when a student is unable to attend their lesson time as courtesy to the teacher if possible. If a student is sick, lessons can be taken online for their regular scheduled lesson time otherwise a student forfeits their lesson. Online links are sent out in case needed at the beginning of student registration.
Lessons that are cancelled for purpose of travel, other conflicts of other activities during the school calendar time and regular lesson time is not eligible for any makeup lessons. You pay for the time of the teacher to keep the spot open solely for that purpose. As the same in sports or dance, there are no refunds made if lessons are missed and the student not being able to attend a lesson. Make-up lessons are not given.
If a teacher needs to cancel, that lesson will be made up at the earliest convenience of both teacher and student. Make-up lessons can take place in the studio or online and at times, if suitable, with a different teacher.
Supplies fee – There will be a fee of $35.00 non-refundable supplies fee for all vocal students to be paid the first lesson of the school year. This covers music photocopying costs, and print outs of music given to vocal students as well as backing tracks of piano accompaniments I record during lesson time (or for online students recorded in my own time). For each accompaniment track requested outside of lesson time and in the teachers own time for auditions, competitions, home use etc there will be a cost of $10 each backing track added to your invoice.
The yearly registration fee is $25 and this is due upon registration payment for July 1st.
