Better Voice Now
- Taking online lessons is a combination of the following: Interactive videos, customized lesson assignments, face-to-face Skype time, recording, performing, and more!
- Students have 4 Skype lessons per month and 3 Skype lessons during the month of December.
- The cost for a single online lesson is 85€ per one-hour lesson. A discounted package of 10 lessons is available for students paying upfront.

TUITION & PAYMENTS: Payments are performed through the secure Stripe platform. An invoice will be sent after the payment is successful. The tuition or course payment, is due on or before the first lesson. Any further installments are due after and every 30 days. If tuition or payment is not received before the due date, lessons will be terminated and the spot will be filled with another student. All past-due accounts will receive a courtesy email and phone call before lesson termination occurs. I have the right to change the fees in my studio at any moment. If this happens, I will let my current students know by email. Students already under tuition will maintain the same rates until the end of their plan.
CANCELLATIONS / RESCHEDULING: Need to change your session date/time? (Hey! Life happens!!) You can TOTALLY reschedule IF your appointment is more than 24 hours away. No rescheduling or refunds are available if you cancel within 24 hours of the appointment. To reschedule an appointment, please use the link in the confirmation email you received, or send an email to email@example.com. Make-up lessons under the tuition plan need to be done within the paid month. All make-up lessons are due to availability on my calendar.
ARRIVING LATE: life gets in the way sometimes...I KNOW! ...BUT you should know that if you are late, I will wait for you for a maximum of 15 minutes. After that, the session will be canceled and charged. IF you start late, the end of the lesson will finish at the previously planned time.
DISCONTINUATION OF LESSONS: To withdraw from any course, package, or subscription, please give a 15-day notification of withdrawal. Should something arise where you cannot financially fulfill your commitment to your music lessons, we appreciate and encourage advance notice and open ongoing communication with our office at firstname.lastname@example.org Students withdrawing will not receive any refund for lessons not taken.
I reserve the right to discontinue lessons for any reason. If I decide to terminate lessons, tuition will be prorated up to the last lesson taken and a refund provided, if applicable. The reasons for discontinuation may be:
- Persistent absences/tardiness
- Excessive requests for scheduling changes
- Lack of progress due to insufficient practice
- Uncooperative attitude or general dislike of lessons
REFUND POLICY: No refunds are available for individual sessions. Here’s why: I’m 100% dedicated to helping you and giving you value. Every single session is guaranteed to result in you learning something new and practicing. It’s up to you to implement mindfully :) If you have purchased a coaching package or subscription, and wish to discontinue after the first session, I will offer a reimbursement of the remaining coaching sessions (total minus 85€) and we can still be friends :) To cancel a coaching package, send an email to email@example.com with your request within 48 hours of your first session.
