Inclement Weather Policy
Cancellation Policy* (see form below to accept this policy)
If you need to cancel your appointment you must do so 48 hours before your scheduled time. Appointments cancelled without this notice will be charged the full appointment fee. However, you may ALWAYS schedule a make-up lesson in the following week, if schedule permits. If a make-up class cannot be scheduled for an appointment cancelled without 48 hours notice, the student must be responsible for the entire fee. All make-ups must be scheduled within the NEXT calendar week, unless otherwise agreed upon by your instructor.
Physical Touch Policy* (see form below to accept this policy)
In the course of study your teacher may need to touch you at various points on the body (including and not limited to, upper and lower abdomen, upper and lower back, pelvis, head, neck, and torso.) Your instructor will always endeavor to ask your verbal permission beforehand. Please indicate your acceptance of this policy on the Client Intake Form below.
Live Streaming and Recording Option (participation optional)
As President of the New York Singing Teachers' Association I am committed to using the best scientific and artistic information to bring you the highest quality voice training experience possible. Part of that experience is the ability to learn from your peers. And, learning from each other’s experience and process is indeed invaluable. With this in mind, we offer a very exciting opportunity to enhance your learning, and help others learn as well. Now, through live streaming video technology, you can watch other students sessions in the studio, live as it is happening. And, each lesson can be recorded for later viewing so YOU can watch your OWN voice lesson and further enhance your own learning experience.
The live stream and video recordings can be accessed by computer directly from our website (“View a Live Lesson”). Also, smart phones (i.e. Blackberry, iPhone, Droid, etc) can download the UstreamTV viewer application to view both the live stream and recorded sessions (see your devise application marketplace or www.ustreamtv.com for details). Each video recording can be made either OPEN for all to view, RESTRICTED only to those in our “crowd” (one must register with the site www.ustreamtv.com to be in our “crowd”), or PRIVATE, only for viewing by Mr. Sabella-Mills and/or your studio instructor.
Each Student, and/or their parents (if minor), have the absolute right to privacy and may at any time refuse to participate in the live stream and or recording option, on a per lesson basis. However, if you wish to participate at any time at all you must agree to the Video/Audio Recording option on the Client Intake Form before your participation in this option can begin.
There is NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE for this service.
