Welcome back! I hope you’ve had a wonderful summer.
We’ve had so many student wins, even just over the summer, it’s so inspiring!
We’ve also welcomed new students into our community, and I feel so lucky to have met these incredibly talented young singers and to welcome you in September!
Below are all of the studio policies for the 2023-2024 school year including dates the studio is closed, and everything you need to know about music, billing, make-up lessons, cancellations, transferring lessons, and anything else policies-wise.
If you’re returning, everything is basically the same as last year. The only change is that this fall I’m including one makeup lesson. Most people didn’t need or want to schedule a makeup lesson, and our studio is more full than last year, so I need to be mindful of being able to actually find a time in both yours and my schedule for a makeup lesson. If you prefer to simply skip the week if something comes up, please know that’s completely fine. Lots of families choose that route.
