My fees are monthly, per student and are due to be paid at the first lesson of every month.These fees are billed by adding up the number of sessions that would occur in a month, taking into account longer and shorter weeks, and any holidays where my studio would be closed. (I accept cash, check, or Venmo.)
Tuition Late Fee:
It is imperative that I am paid on time and in full. Should your payment be any later than 11:59 pm on the day of your lesson, you will incur a late fee of $35.00, due upon final receipt of your tuition for the month in question.
What Does My Tuition Cover?
It is always important to know where your money is going when you take on new investments. Please know that I am completely invested in helping my students to realize their full potential lesson over lesson, resulting in performance excellence and confidence building that crosses over into all aspects of their lives. Additionally, your tuition will be going toward the purchase of yours/your child's sheet music as well as any and all music theory books, piano technique books, and classical song books. Lastly, my business model provides my coming to your location for each lesson.
Cancellation/ Rescheduling Policy:
We all have things going on in our lives and sometimes we have to cancel even our most favourite activities. Should that be the case, I ask that you provide to me a cancellation notice of at least 48 hours in advance of the lesson date. This applies to any last minute rescheduling. Since I travel to you, your consideration in this way would be greatly appreciated.
Due to my expanding studio, I am only able to allow make-up lessons between June 1st and August 31st. Should the student cancel a lesson not during that time period, the student will not be reimbursed in any form for their missed lesson. Should the teacher miss a lesson, the student will be prorated in the following month's tuition.
Termination and Withdrawal:
I never like to say goodbye to any of my students, however, should it become necessary, I request at least one month's notice of termination. If, for example, you have already paid tuition for a given month and you withdraw the following week, you will not receive a refund.
Lauren's Vocal Studio will be closed on the following holidays:
The week of Thanksgiving
The week between Christmas and New Year's Day starting back up on January 2nd.
Fourth of July
Mother's Day/Father's Day
There will be three major studio performances per year in Lauren's Vocal Studio.
These performances will appear:
In an effort to provide my students with the best performance venues as possible, I am instituting a recital fee of $40.00 that will be payable at the beginning of the month prior to the recital date. For example, if the recital is in December, your fee will be included with your November tuition.
It is my philosophy as a teacher to provide students with opportunities to apply what they learn in lessons to a stage in front of an audience. This not only teaches them preparedness, but also builds confidence in ways that nothing else can. Each performance will vary in theme in an effort to enhance skills and teach new concepts. These include, but are not limited to, harmonizing in groups as well as counting and harmonizing while singing with live bands. Most importantly, it teaches them to learn how to sing, under pressure, all the while implementing proper singing technique. These performances are fun and memorable while also proving to be incredibly important to my student's growth as not only vocalists, but as people.
