Vocal Lesson Policies
Voice Lessons are $150 an hour. If you prefer to work for a half hour, the fee is $75. We will provide a pianist. If you want your own pianist, we invite you to bring your own.
Students are encouraged to bring in sheet music that they are interested in working on. Rainey Day Music & Theater will also provide free music, and guidance on repertoire selection.
People get sick, or have conflicts with work, kids, or just life in general. Unfortunately, in New York City, we are offering lessons in rented studios. Because of the policies at Pearl Studios, or Ripley Grier, or Simple Studios—Rainey Day Music & Theater can not allow same day cancelations. All cancelations require 48 hour notice. There will still be situations that arise that might cause a sudden cancelation; however, in such instances, the student will be responsible for the lesson fee and the studio rental fee. All lessons cancelled by the student can be rescheduled, but all lessons will be billed. No-show lessons will need to be paid for before a new one can be scheduled.
Rainey Day Music & Theater Cancels:
In the event that Rainey Day Music & Theater has to cancel a student’s pre-arranged lesson in the 48 hour window, that student will rescheduled, and receive a free lesson.
