Payment will be accepted at prior or at time of lesson, according to the student’s preference. If payment is not received at time of lesson, the student will be charged a $10 late fee. Checks are preferred, however PayPal is also available. There will be a $15 charge for returned checks, plus bank fees. You are paying for a time slot, therefore it is important to be early and prepared at your lesson. Lesson times will not be extended if you run late.
If a lesson is cancelled by the student, I must receive 24 hours notice to reschedule the lesson. If less notice is received, I am not obligated to make up that lesson and the student will still require payment for the missed lesson. All lessons canceled by myself (ample notice will be given) will be made up by the end of that month.
Weather Policy: I follow the educational system as far as canceling lessons. Therefore if we are expecting 5-7inches of snow or have -30 degree weather and the schools are closing I will cancel lessons. You will receive a email and text at least 4 hours or more of your scheduled lesson if it is canceled. I will be creating a contact list of all phone numbers, therefore please provide me you phone number. If you have not done so already, please add my number your phone. It's 704-661-3175.
Sick Policy: It is cold and flu season so be on guard. If you wake up with a stomach virus, loss of voice, or fever please let me know ASAP to cancel lessons. If you have a common cold, you can still attend lessons.
All other lessons that need to be canceled, need to be prearranged at least a week in advance.

Interview Lesson - An interview lesson is a chance for us to get to know each other, for me to hear your voice, and for you to ask as many questions as you like. It is also a chance to see if it will be a good fit both for the teacher and the student. A one-time 30 min interview lesson will be offered at $25. Prospective students are asked to bring in one song with music that they would like to sing and notebook paper to take notes.
