RATES AND FEES
Weekly 60-minute lesson: $65
Weekly 30-minute lesson: $40
Payment can be made by Venmo, cash or check made out to Rachel Roy.
The lesson rate does not include accompanist fees, recital fees or fees paid for voice auditions or competitions. Additional lessons are available over the winter break, as scheduling permits, for students preparing for exams or auditions.
Rates for occasional lessons/coaching are $70 per hour. This option should be used if you are unable to commit to a weekly lesson time. These are scheduled as availability allows.
CANCELED AND MISSED LESSONS
48-hour notice must be given.
Lessons canceled within the 48 hours of the scheduled lesson will be responsible for paying the full rate for the missed lesson. There will be no charge for lessons canceled with sufficient notice.
This includes cancellations for family vacations as well as school-related absences and will be strictly adhered to.
This policy is consistent with those of teams, schools, camps, and dojo’s that place a high priority on regular attendance and diligent commitment. Please choose a time that works with your other extracurricular activities and give sufficient notice if there is a conflict.
If there is an uncontrollable or unforeseen event that prevents any lesson(s) from taking place, I will contact you as soon as possible to inform you that the lesson will not be held (i.e. dangerous roads, power outage, national emergency).
Drop-off / Pick-up
Students are to arrive no earlier than 5 minutes before their lesson time and picked up no later than 5 minutes after the lesson has ended. If you are running late please call or text.
Lessons will focus on learning about your instrument - how to use it and how to understand the language of music. We will learn about music theory, solfege, sight-reading, scales, chord identification, score analysis, breath control, anatomy of the voice/vocal mechanism, audition/performance techniques, character development, musical genres and basic piano skills.
What to Bring
Please come to each lesson prepared and ready to have fun!

A Good Attitude
I will provide a lesson calendar with dates I will not be teaching.
Your lesson time is reserved for you. If you decide that you are unable to continue lessons, I ask that you give at least one-month notice.
