Bloom Studio Policies 2020-2021 Season
YOUR LESSON DAY and TIME are reserved for your exclusive use every week, whether you use it or not. To that end, if you are a student who is reserving a specific weekly time slot, you must pay for your lesson every week during the regular studio year which runs from Mid-August through Mid-June. If you cannot attend a lesson, please call or text as soon as possible and you can either have a video call lesson during your regular lesson time or you will be sent a video recorded lesson which you can do at your leisure. 24 hours notice is required on all missed lessons. If 24 hours notice is not given, you forfeit your option for an online lesson; however, Ms. Bloom might still send you a video recorded lesson for the week, at her discretion.
Payment must be made for the full month of lessons at the first lesson of the month in cash, check or via electronic deposit (Venmo or Zelle).
Payment is $30 for each 30 min lesson and $55 for each 1 hr lesson. Ms. Bloom will count up the number of lessons in the month and let you know the total at the beginning of each month.
MISSED LESSONS: Missed lessons must be paid for by the next scheduled lesson time, if not paid for in advance. If the student is sick, please let Ms. Bloom know and you can do a video call lesson via Zoom or FaceTime during your regular lesson time or a video recorded lesson that you can do anytime that week. If you are unable to do a video call lesson at your regular lesson time due to being unavailable, Ms. Bloom will send you a video recorded lesson.
If you know you will be out of town for your lesson and you give 1 week’s notice, students may request to reschedule in-person during an available spot on the Studio Calendar at www.marissabloom.com However, if a lesson cannot be rescheduled within 2 weeks of the missed lesson date, she will send you a video lesson instead.
If Ms. Bloom becomes ill, she will switch all lessons that week to video call lessons for your own safety and health. If she has to cancel due to travel, she will give you ample notice and do her best to reschedule your lesson.
HOLIDAYS: The studio will be closed from December 20th through January 3rd. As spring break falls on different dates depending on school district, spring break will not be observed at the studio; so, please use the regular rescheduling options if you are going out of town.
ILLNESS: Please do not come in for a lesson if you or your family member has a contagious illness. It is unfair to the other students and instructor. Please switch to online lessons while you are healing. If you don’t have a voice, we can focus on theory and composition work until you are feeling well enough to sing or play.
TIMELINESS: If you are late, you will have the remaining time for your lesson. Please be prompt on student pick-up. SUMMER LESSONS: Our regular studio schedule runs Mid-August through Mid-June with a recital early in June. Lessons will be available over the summers on a week-by-week basis, but will not have the same rescheduling requirements as during the school year (besides the 24 hour cancelation policy.) Those who continue lessons through the summer receive first priority on lesson day/time signups for the new studio year. The 2020-2021 Regular Studio Schedule will end June 13th and the 2021-2022 Studio Schedule will begin August 9th.
MUSIC: You will be required to purchase your own method books and additional sheet music as suggested by the instructor. Please also supply a binder and pencil.
DISCONTINUING: One month’s notice is required when discontinuing or requesting a change. If you have to discontinue lessons with less notice, you will still be charge for the next month and will be sent video recorded lessons.
WEEK-TO-WEEK LESSON SCHEDULING: If you prefer not to reserve an exact weekly lesson time, you can schedule on a week-to-week basis as you wish. Ms. Bloom cannot promise you an exact lesson time or that she will be able to fit you in each week. You can then pay by the lesson; however, the 24-hr cancelation policy is still in effect. Just let Ms. Bloom know how often you wish to come in for lessons and she’ll contact you whenever she has an opening. Non-weekly lessons are $35 for 30 mins and $60 for 1 hr.
