Terms and Conditions
Lessons are to be paid for at the time of the lesson or in advance. Payment plans can be arranged. Barter is not accepted. Cash or card are accepted.
All new bookings and casual lessons will require a 50% non-refundable deposit to be paid through SquareUp invoice 24 hours prior to the lesson.
Praxis is free to current private students. If you are not a current student but would like to continue on with this you can purchase a term pass for Praxis at the cost of $150 per 9 week term.
Invoices will be issued for all students who have come to the end of their lesson blocks who have indicated they are continuing on. If no deposit or payment plan has been made 24 hours before their next scheduled lesson their invoice will be deleted, and their normal lesson time given away. The next lesson block after that will need to be paid in full before recommencement of lessons.
You must bring your own USB device, a folder, a water bottle, and a notebook. You are welcome to record your session, but do not have permission to publish this recording or use it in any way other than for private practice without the express written permission of the Director.
You are responsible for ensuring that drug, alcohol, and prescription medication use is disclosed before each session, as these substances will alter the way your voice works. You are responsible for your own hydration and vocal health.
You are responsible for your own craft; nothing can substitute for action or practice. Due to the nature of extreme vocals and certain high-performance singing styles there can be no promise made that damage will not occur to your voice and you undertake all tuition and recommendations as your own risk.

Any student showing up with a cold or flu will be sent home and the full amount of the lesson charged to you.
