Policies

Payment

 

The cost of a voice lesson is $30 for 30 minutes, $45 for 45 minutes, and $60 for 60 minutes.  

Lessons are to be paid a month in advance on the last lesson of the previous month.  A Payment can be made by cash, check or a direct invoice from me, which can then be paid by credit card.

What to Bring- Students please bring any music, music books and theory books to all of your lessons.  

 

Payment Policy- 

Lessons are to be paid a month in advance on the last lesson of the previous month.  A Payment can be made by cash, check or a by direct invoice from me, which can then be paid by credit card online. You will receive a monthly invoice and you are paying and reserving your time slot for the month. 

I really appreciate everyone who has been diligent paying on time!  Moving forward I will no longer be able to teach a lesson that has not been paid for.  

 

Scheduling- In fairness to everyone's time and schedule, I must strictly enforce the policies below. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

 

Conflicts should be kept to a minimum as we have specifically reserved this time for your student.  You will be receiving email and/or text reminders for your upcoming voice lessons.

 

Cancellations & Rescheduling: 

As with any other type of lessons (dance/gymnastics) once you are accepted as a student and have been given a time slot, you are agreeing to pay for your time slot even if you are not able to attend a lesson.  This includes performances, rehearsals for shows, vacations, etc.

If you are unable to make it to your scheduled lesson, a 24-hour notice is required. Notice may be given by sending an email or you may call or text: (917)-533-8089. A make up lesson can be scheduled. **Please understand that Jessica cannot always guarantee a rescheduled time for that week.  All make up lessons need to be made up within the month they were in.  After that they will expire.**

 

If less than 24-hour notice is given, the student will be charged for that lesson.

The only time you will be credited for a lesson is if Jessica cancels or in the case of inclement weather

 

If a student is ill, I wish to be notified as soon as possible so that a make-up lesson can be scheduled. 

 

Sickness

If you are sick, it does not mean you should not come to your lesson.  As long as you are not contagious, there is still a lot to study when you are not 100% vocally. You will learn how to safely sing through the sickness as well as breathing, posture, harmony, memorization techniques, theory, etc. There is still so much to learn when not at your peak performance vocally.

 

No Show

If a lesson is missed two weeks in a row without contacting Jessica, you will have forfeited your time slot and will no longer be considered a student:

Jessica’s Cancellations: If Jessica must cancel a lesson, you will be notified, when possible, 24 hours prior to the start of the lesson, if it can not be rescheduled that week, you will receive a full refund or credit- your choice.

 

Thank you for respecting these policies. 

 

Visitors

 

Parents/Guardians are welcome to observe a lesson anytime with advanced notice to both the student and teacher. Please understand that with some students this will be an unnatural situation and they will not be as relaxed and responsive as they usually are. You may feel free to call or email me to discuss the vocal progress of the student at any time.
