Lessons & Studio Policies

Private Lessons & Group Classes

Bill Reed Voice Studio offers private voice lessons for students ages 14 and up. Lesson lengths are 45 minutes. Hour-long Saturday group classes are available for beginning students, ages 10-16. Lessons and classes include vocal warm-up/vocal technique and song interpretation and culminate with performance opportunities.

Lessons by Audition

Due to the high demand for private lessons, students must audition to be a member of the voice studio.

Studio Policies

Payment in full is due at each lesson unless you’ve made a previous payment arrangement. If you prefer, you may prepay for a series of lessons. Payment may be made by cash, check (payable to “Bill Reed Voice Studio), or by PayPal or credit card through the Bill Reed Voice Studio student portal. We appreciate your business and prompt payment! We reserve the right to prevent scheduling of future lessons if your account carries a balance due.

To cancel or reschedule, please do so by logging in to your student portal a minimum of 48 hours in advance. No-shows for scheduled lessons, and lessons canceled by the student less than 48 hours in advance, are billed at the regular rate. (There may be an opportunity to make up a lesson in some situations, such as illness or emergency.) Thank you for your understanding.
