Private Voice Lessons for Females, Grades 6-12
Kerith currently has the following openings in her voice lesson schedule:
Mondays, 5:40-6:40
Thursdays 5:40-6:40
 
As long as my students aren’t allergic to cats, I hold lessons at my place. (If allergic, please let me know, and we can work something out.)  I typically do a 60-minute session for $50 once a week, and accept payment at the time of the lesson or in advance.  If a family would like to pay in advance for a 4-lesson bundle, I can offer a discounted rate of $45 per lesson. I allow one cancellation or rescheduling every 3 months.  If a family needs to reschedule lessons to a different time or day of the week, I require at least 48 hours notice.  I’m pretty flexible, so if a family’s schedule changes, I can almost always accommodate them.  If my schedule changes and we aren’t able to find a time to meet that week, any pre-paid money will roll over to future lessons.  Because I have a broad background in singing and was classically trained, we can work on whatever style of music my students would like, as well as general vocal technique & safety, increasing vocal range, ear training, goal-setting, performance aspects, song-writing, and even recording in our professional-grade studio. We’ll work hard, but it’ll be a lot of fun, too!

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE SCHOLARSHIPS

Rising Stars strives to give all kids access to our  programs, regardless of their families’ financial situations.  However, our scholarship fund is limited, and we may not be able to award financial assistance to all who apply.  Financial Assistance reduces campers’ tuition fees; it does not eliminate them.  All students’ families will pay something.

Financial Assistance Applications are due two weeks prior to the session starting date.  Late applications will not be considered. Please read over the application by clicking on the button below. If you still have questions AFTER reading the application, feel free to contact us.
