It is a busy world we live in! However, regular attendance and practice is necessary to reap the benefits of vocal instruction. Regular payment is necessary to keep lesson fees reasonable, and to keep the studio open. Therefore lessons are paid in advance and there are no refunds for missed lessons. Please consider that there is a great deal beyond the scheduled lesson that goes into each students’ instruction, so I assure my singers and their families that they will always receive what they pay for and more, even if missing a lesson is unavoidable.

  • Studio space and time is limited, so makeup times for missed lessons are not guaranteed. Many studios enforce a no-makeup lesson policy; I will make efforts to be flexible if necessary, but it is expected that voice lessons will be a priority for students as they are for me. We will work together to schedule make up lessons within a week or two of the original lesson date.

  • Per diem lessons must each be booked in advance; the same weekly time is not guaranteed.

  • Students are encouraged to trade times with each other to work around scheduling conflicts.

  • No-shows will not be made up and will not be refunded.


I appreciate student and family referrals. These recommendations are some of the best compliments I can receive, and they are a powerful way to bring new students into the studio. Therefore I am pleased to offer current students $10 off their next lesson each time their referral results in a new student sign-up!
