Voice, Violin and Viola lessons take place in my home studio at 4804 Sweetbrier Dr. Harrisburg, Pennsylvania 17111 and online- Zoom, FaceTime, and Google Hangouts. Lessons are available on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
Voice lessons are available for beginner to advanced students ages 6-adulthood.
Violin and Viola Lessons are available for beginner-advanced intermediate students ages 6-adulthood.
Monthly payment is due at the beginning of the month or at your first lesson for the month. Payment must be received by the 15th, or a late fee of $25 will incur weekly. Monthly payments can be in the form of cash, check payable to Molly Rahe-Randall, Venmo, Apple Pay, Cash App or my PayPal Link.
If using my PayPal Link it is already set up as friends and family. If you choose to pay by checking goods and services, you must add a $5 fee. The fee is required to cover the additional PayPal fee imposed when sending money using goods and services.
All other payment methods will not incur an additional fee as all other methods do not charge additional fees.
For students paying per lesson, payment is due before the start of your lesson.
Missed Lesson Policy and Make-Up Lessons
A 24-hour notice is needed when canceling a lesson.
You can cancel or reschedule a lesson directly through the lesson portal.
A two weeks notice is required to terminate lessons.
If your child forgets to bring home their instrument or music, you can still have them come to their lesson. If I don't have an instrument or spare music for them to use, I will take that lesson to review musical terms related to their instrument. If you choose to cancel for this reason, a make-up will not be given, and full payment for that lesson will be required.
Lessons will ONLY be made up if there is a 24-hour notice given at cancellation, or if cancellation occurs due to an emergency or illness. For emergencies or illnesses, a lesson will only be made up if the cancellation occurs more than 3 hours before the lesson start time.
Make-up lessons must be rescheduled within 45 days of the cancellation, or the make-up will be forfeited. You can reschedule the make-up on the lesson portal or contact me for availability. It is your responsibility to schedule the make-up lesson.
If a make up lesson is canceled, it cannot be rescheduled, and the lesson will be forfeited.
Lessons will not be made up and will be forfeited for the following reasons:
1. If you forget to come.
2. If you forget to cancel.
3. If you cancel in less than 24 hours.
4. If you have an Emergency or wake up sick and cancel less than 3 hours before your lesson start time.
5. If you forget your music or instrument and cancel for that reason.
Lessons will only be prorated for the following reasons:
1. If I have to cancel and cannot reschedule.
2. If the student and I are unable to coordinate our schedules, prorating may be an option.
3. If you begin lessons in the middle of the month, your first month will be prorated.
5th Week of the Month
Some months will have 5 weeks in them. If you would like to take lessons all 5 weeks, payment for that month will be for 5 lessons.
You may also use that 5th week for a make up lesson if needed. If I need to cancel a lesson, I will utilize the 5th week of the month for the make up lesson.
Online Lessons- Zoom, FaceTime, and Google Hangouts available
Online lessons also work well for these reasons:
1. If things are going on in your schedule that makes it difficult to come in person that week.
2. If the weather is not so nice that day.
3. If you are feeling under the weather but still feel good enough to have a lesson.
4. If you don't have a way to get to your lesson in person.
5. If you need to reschedule to a later time in the evening and you want to have your lesson in your PJ’s.
If you do need to switch to online for that week, please send me a text or email to let me know. If you do live close enough to have in-person lessons, but prefer online, I do highly suggest coming at least once a month in person. In-person allows us to play duets together (if taking violin or viola lessons), and that's always FUN!
No Lessons during the following Holidays:
Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve, New Year's Day, July 4th
In case of snow/ice, I will contact you if lessons will be canceled or the lesson may be canceled at the discretion of the parent or student. I feel safety is most important. During the winter months when the weather is bad, if you have skype, facetime, or google hangouts and do not want to cancel the lesson, I will be able to give the lesson that way. This is a great option if you do not want to miss a week due to bad weather.
Etiquette for My Home:
When entering my home, please come in, go down the stairs, and have a seat. That is the waiting room area. The bathroom is located off of the studio room. Parents are more than welcome to come in, sit on the couches, and wait. I ask that you please be respectful of my home.
Please note: By starting or continuing lessons, you agree to abide by the policy sheet.
