Terms & Conditions For Student Lessons
Private Vocal Lessons focus on freeing the natural voice, vocal technique, and performance styles. Our ultimate goal is the ability to express confidently without limitations! Songwriting one on, one is an intensive on the craft of songwriting, utilizing Music, Melody, Lyrics, and a final recording session. Our goal is to write a complete song within the 4 sessions. Lessons are offered to individuals committed to their personal development. Curriculum from each program is customized for each individual artist.
Arriving on time is a trademark of a true professional. Be on time, be prepared, and focused. This time is your investment in your goals, and is all about building productive habits. I do not have the flexibility in my schedule to push back time if you are late to your lesson. Minutes late will be deducted from your lesson time. Please anticipate travel time and make arrangements to arrive to your lesson on time.
In order to take advantage of the bulk lesson savings, you must sign up for the automatic billing service. Your payment information will be securely stored through PayPal. Your credit card will only be charged on the first lesson of the month. Your monthly tuition charge will appear on your billing statement as “Voice lessons.” Once your payment has been completed, you will receive an emailed receipt from PayPal. I encourage each student to enroll in the automatic billing, so they can simply come and enjoy their lessons, without worrying about processing payment each week, or missing a lesson if they forget.
You are welcome to process payment week to week if you choose at the regular rate of $100 / lesson. Your payment must be made 24 hours prior to your scheduled lesson. Once your payment is completed 24 hours in advance, your lesson will be confirmed on the schedule. If payment is not received 24 hours prior to your lesson, your name will not be included on the daily lesson roster. Payments will not be accepted on the day of the lesson. If you choose to pay lesson to lesson, it is your responsibility to remember to process payment. 24 hours prior to your scheduled lesson.

There is no such thing as a missed lesson! I understand that sometimes, events occur that keep us from attending our lesson. (Weather, family emergency, personal illness, etc.) Due to the nature of how the lessons are organized, you won’t miss out on what you would have learned during our time together! I will utilize our lesson time, and create a video for you focusing on the lesson plan created for your lesson that day. I will cover the specifics of each exercise in full for you to practice at home. I will also deconstruct the song we have been working on, highlighting the areas of focus for your at home rehearsals. This is not a substitute for continued attendance. Keep all missed lessons to a minimum.
- To receive a video lesson in place of a schedule lesson, call or email a minimum of 24 hours prior to your schedule lesson day and time. Cancellation requests submitted by text message, Facebook Messenger, Skype Messenger, or similar means will not be accepted as a cancellation request. Clients must call to cancel. A no call no show will forfeit the cost of his or her scheduled lesson and will not receive a video lesson.
- 3 consecutive lessons missed will forfeit your lesson slot.
- The following holidays are observed and lessons will not be held on these weeks; Thanksgiving, Christmas, July 4th. Lessons that fall on these weeks will roll over into the following week, and will not be charged.
- We encourage you to invest this time in yourself. The lessons are focused on you and your dream. Make being at your lessons a priority. In encourages professionalism in the way you commit to your goals, and the working relationships with others.
An adequate lesson schedule is one lesson per week. Lesson time/day are contingent on availability. Should you need to change your lesson day/time, 7-business days notice is required. Should your ideal lesson time be unavailable, you will be included on a waiting list until that time opens.
Lesson Video Recordings
Students who take advantage of the Private Voice lesson, Skype lessons, and Songwriting 1 on 1 will be video recorded. The video from the lesson will be uploaded to Dropbox, and an email with the link will be emailed to the student to retrieve their video file. Video files will stay active in the Drop box account for 7 days. If you do not retrieve the video file within that time, the video is deleted. The content within the lesson is copy written and owned by Madeleine Harvey.
