If a student is ill, I wish to be notified as soon as it is convenient so that a lesson change can be made. If there is a general conflict I need to know a week or two in advance because often a lesson switch can be arranged. Failure to notify me 24 hours prior to the lesson missed after the first time will result in a charged lesson, except in the case of an emergency. All lessons missed due to scheduling conflicts for the student or me will be made up at an agreeable time.
Nearly all lessons taught in my studio are one hour. In those cases where a lesson time of that length would be unsuitable - vocal rehabilitation clients, young students - the 1/2 hour lesson fee will apply.
$90 - 90 minutes
$60 - hour
$50 - 45 minutes
$40 - 1/2 hour
Most students find it convenient to pay by check at each lesson, or at the beginning of each month. If this is the case for you, please make out the checks to ANDREW BARRETT.

From past experience, I have found that students and/or parents inquire about extra costs involved in the purchase of music. Because of the costs of music, I try to use books whenever possible, as opposed to single song sheets. Three pieces of sheet music often equal the cost of an entire book, yet from time to time sheets will be used because many songs are not included in book collections. Until I am sure of the vocal range of a new student, I may use individual songs before deciding on definite books. An estimate of music costs for each year of lessons would range from $50-$100 depending upon the progress, age, and ambition of the student.
