Delivery of Lessons:

  • I am patiently waiting to hear more information regarding in-person singing rules in Ontario. I will have a Hepa Filter in place in the studio, and hope to have vaccinated 12 and up students in-person singing this fall. I will look at a one week in the Studio, one week online approach, as I will need to air out the room for 30 minutes between students. This means that all online technology will still be necessary throughout the year. I am waiting on guidance regarding singers under the age of 12.

Singer’s Masks:

  • All students will be required to wear and purchase a Singer’s Mask for in-person lessons. I have suggested an Ontario company link below, but other company’s are selling them.

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 are asked to fill out a policies and information form.

Other Policies:

  • To ensure that appropriate preparation is possible, if a student is working towards an RCM Gr. 6/7/8 exam, a 45 or 60 minute lesson is necessary. Similarly, if a student is working towards an RCM Gr. 9/ 10 exam, a 60 minute lesson is necessary.

Scheduling:

  • The weekly lesson schedule is completed on a first come first served basis prior to the start of each school year.
  • Regularly Scheduled Lessons¬† begin September 11, 2021 based on available space
  • If interested in pursuing voice lessons, please contact Michelyn through the Contact page.
  • Daytime lessons are available by appointment
