Studio Policies

Students​ ​are​ ​allotted​ ​one​ ​lesson​ ​per​ ​week​. ​​ Lesson​ ​fees​ ​will​ ​not​ ​cover​ ​the​ ​cost​ ​of​ ​materials​ ​such​ ​as​ ​books​ ​and​ ​accompanists.​ ​​ ​Additional​ ​fees​ ​are​ ​to​ ​be​ ​determined​ ​each start of the vocal studio year (September).​ ​​ ​LR Voice Studio​​ ​reserves​ ​the​ ​right​ ​to raise​ ​lesson ​fee​ ​rates​ ​at​ ​any​ ​time,​ ​but​ ​rates​ ​will​ ​not​ ​change​ ​within​ ​the​ calendar year.​ ​New​ ​fee​ ​rates​ ​will​ ​apply​ ​to the​ ​following​ ​vocal studio year (September).


Students​ ​are​ ​expected​ ​to​ ​be​ ​prepared​ ​for​ ​each​ ​lesson​ ​by​ ​practicing​ ​outside​ ​of​ ​the​ ​lesson​ ​period.​ ​​ ​It​ ​is​ ​the​ ​student’s responsibility​ ​to​ ​learn​ ​the​ ​music​ ​provided​ ​by​ ​the​ ​teacher,​ ​as​ ​the​ ​teacher​ ​is​ ​simply​ ​a​ ​facilitator​ ​of​ ​learning.​ ​​ ​Students​ ​who​ ​show little​ ​growth​ ​due​ ​to​ ​lack​ ​of​ ​practice​ ​outside​ ​of​ ​lessons​ ​may​ ​be​ ​dropped​ ​from​ ​the​ ​studio​. Specific​ ​practice​ ​expectations​ ​will​ ​vary​ ​from​ ​student​ ​to​ ​student​ ​as​ ​determined​ ​by​ ​the​ ​teacher.  

Payment Policy

Payment​ ​is​ ​due​ ​in full at​ ​the start of each lesson. Failure to have payment upon start of lesson will result in an additional late fee of $10. If the student does not remit payment as mentioned upon the next lesson, an additional late fee of $20 will be added to the total missed fees (i.e. $75 + $10 + $75 + $20 = $180). Students who have two lessons unpaid will be immediately dropped from the studio and an invoice will be sent. The​ ​student​ ​is​ ​responsible​ ​for​ ​purchasing​ ​all​ ​books​ ​requested​ ​by​ ​instructor​ ​and paying​ ​other miscellaneous fees (i.e. recital, singing competitions). 

Cancellation Policy

Cancellation​ ​of​ ​lessons​ ​must​ ​be​ ​done​ ​at​ ​least​ ​24​ ​hours​ ​before​ ​the​ ​scheduled​ ​lesson​ ​time excluding illness.​ ​​Failure​ ​to cancel​ ​within​ ​24​ ​hours​ ​will​ ​result​ ​in​ ​forfeiture​ ​of​ ​lesson​, charge for missed lesson ($75/$100), and will incur a late fee of $10.​​ ​If​ ​the​ ​teacher​ ​cancels​ ​the​ ​lesson without 24 hours notice,​ lesson fees will be refunded and/or can be utilized for the next scheduled lesson (if prepaid).​ ​​​If​ ​the teacher​ ​is​ ​unable​ ​to​ ​reschedule​ ​the​ ​lesson​ within a weeks time ​due​ ​to​ ​scheduling​ ​conflicts,​ ​the​ ​fees​ ​associated​ ​with​ ​the​ ​lesson​ ​will​ ​be​ ​returned​ ​to the​ ​student (if prepaid).​​ ​Students will not be allowed more than three makeup lessons during the vocal studio year unless otherwise stated by the instructor prior to the vocal studio start (September). To​ ​cancel​ ​a​ ​lesson,​ ​please​ ​call​ ​​(414)​ ​303-7155 or email Jarathmann@gmail​.com.

No-Show Policy

A student is considered a no-show if they have not arrived within the first 7 minutes of their lesson.  If the student is deemed a no-show, the student will be charged for that lesson with an additional late fee of $10 for the first no-show and $20 for the second. If you are delayed arriving at your lesson due to traffic, inclement weather, or unforeseen circumstances, it is expected you contact the instructor so you are not deemed a no-show.  Without communication, any absence will be marked as a no-show.  If the student incurs three or more no-show lessons, the student may be dropped from the studio.

Refund Policy

If lesson(s) has been prepaid,​ ​the​ ​student​ ​has​ ​two​ ​weeks​ ​to​ ​remove​ ​themselves​ ​from​ ​lessons​ ​to​ ​get​ ​a full​ ​refund.​ ​​ ​After​ ​the​ ​two​ ​week​ ​period,​ ​if​ ​the​ ​student​ ​removes​ ​themselves​ ​from​ ​the​ ​lessons​ ​they​ ​will​ ​forfeit​ ​their​ ​prepaid fees.​ ​​ ​In​ ​issuing​ ​refunds,​ ​the​ ​teacher​ ​will​ ​return​ ​funds​ ​in​ ​the​ ​form​ ​of​ ​a​ ​check​ ​or​ ​via​ ​digital payment source (i.e. PayPal, Venmo, etc)​ ​within​ ​two​ ​weeks​ ​of​ ​removal​ ​from lessons.​ ​​ ​Please​ ​see​ ​the​ ​cancellation​ ​policy​ ​for​ ​refunds​ ​regarding​ ​cancelled​ ​lessons.
