Studio Policies

Voice lesson packages are paid by the month in advance.  Payment is due by the 7th of each calendar month.  Payments not received by the 7th will incur a $25 late fee.  Payment can be made by check made out to Ellen Allen, via PayPal (, or via Venmo to EllenAllenMusic.

There are no deductions for absences.  Even if you cannot attend your lesson, your studio membership is still working for you.

Students are responsible for cancelling their lessons through the online scheduler.  Lessons cancelled at least four hours in advance will be issued a make-up credit, which the client may use to book into any available lesson time indicated in the calendar.  Lessons cancelled with fewer than four hours' notice will not be issued a make-up credit.  If you schedule a make-up lesson and then cancel it, you will not be issued another make-up credit.

If you arrive early for your lesson, please wait outside or in your vehicle until it is time for your lesson.

In cases of inclement weather or other circumstances that prevent an in-person lesson, lessons will take place virtually.  I will send you the link to your virtual lesson via email.

If you need to suspend your lessons for any length of time, please provide at least two weeks' notice.  If you suspend your lessons with less than two weeks' notice, you will be charged a cancellation fee equal to one half of your monthly tuition amount.
