  • There will continue to be no waiting area inside the house, students will enter when the garage door opens.
  • All students may choose fully online
  • Students feeling any amount of sickness (sore throat/cough/runny nose/fever/chills/nausea etc.) must move their lesson online.

Face Masks:

  • Singer’s Masks for in-person lessons are suggested but any mask that makes the singer feel comfortable is acceptable.

Cancellation Policy:

  • Due to the size of the studio and resulting scheduling limitations, make-up times for lessons cancelled for any reason will not be offered.  Exceptions will be made only when Michelyn cancels lessons for personal reasons. Inclement weather is no longer an issue as lessons can be held online.
  • Parents and students must fill out and sign a policies and information form prior to the beginning of the 22/23 year.
