If you must miss a class, please give us written notice 48 hours before your lesson for full make-up credit.
If you let us know less than 48 hours before your lesson, but more than 24 hours, you may be subjected to 50% of your lesson fee, with no make-up credit.
If you forgot to come to class, come late, or let the administration know with less than 24 hours before your lesson, you will be charged the full tuition fee for the class and there will be no make-up lesson.
Please send all rescheduling requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the event that a teacher is ill, or have to reschedule, you will be notified of the cancellation in advance, or the lesson will be made up by another qualified teacher. We do our best to maintain consistency in our lessons, and will match you up with teachers that fit you best.
Private Lesson Loyalty Discounts for Long-Term Students
Students purchasing a loyalty package receive scheduling priority and discounted rates. The credit is non-transferable, and non-refundable. They do not expire, however, after 16 months of inactivity, it will be valued to reflect any pricing changes if there is one.
Introductory Lessons are 55 minutes in length.
Beginner lessons are 60 minutes in length, however if there are 6 students or more in a class, we add an additional 15 minutes to the lesson!
Intermediate, Glee and Advanced lessons are 60 minutes in length.
Depending on the school term, student repertoire includes popular Top 40 songs, and a full Broadway Musical. We are happy to offer supplementary dance, drama and performance training, but our focus is on vocal skill development. We begin our curriculum with group songs, and as our students gain confidence and strong technical ability, we offer a masterclass series during their classes. This allows students to receive coaching on any song they wish to sing.
Group Class Tuition
Lessons and credits are non-transferable, and non-refundable. As part of the program fees, a minimum of two (2) performance opportunities are included in the pricing for each term. If you do not attend the performances, you will not be reimbursed.
Students that are ill are encouraged to stay home, and can opt to Zoom into the classroom to participate virtually if they should feel well enough to do so. Students can make up a missed class within the same school week by joining any one of our available group classes.
Please consult the group class schedule to see which class is suitable for your child’s ability and age.
Please send all absences and requests for make up sessions to email@example.com.
We often have public out-of-school and in-school performances, as well as in-class recording opportunities. These are all included with the lessons fees, so we encourage our students to take advantage of the available experiences. While students don’t have to participate in every event, we encourage them to make our events their priority so that they can feel a strong belonging to the school. Parents/ students must agree to media release forms to participate in these photographed and videotaped events.
We have many exciting performances every month. To be notified, please ask to be on the Wechat family group, or special request to include you to the mailing list to find out more about the performances.
Please look out for our summer programs. We have exciting weekly camps like ‘MV (music video) Making’, ‘Song-Writing’, ‘Cover Video Recording’, ‘Musical Theatre’, and we know they will inspire your kids!
T-Shirt / School Uniform / Rental
School T-shirt are available for purchase at $15. This is worn for all out of school events, including performances, camps, and field trips. Please purchase this well before your performance date to ensure your child has one. If you need special sizing, please let us know at the beginning of the school term so that we can order it for you.
At some shows, students will require special costumes. If the school provides it, students will not have to purchase the item, but they will pay a rental fee to borrow it for the show. We offer this service so that parents do not have to purchase large amounts of costumes each year.
