Protégé Program is our completely custom package for singers with specific goals in mind or a deadline looming. If you are interested in learning more about the protégé program please email Elizabeth Barry.
Do you still offer A La Carte Lessons?- Yes! We still offer a la carte lessons. You can book a one-off lesson with Hannah or Emily here.
What if I need to adjust my Monthly Payment Date? - Studio members will be charged on the first of the month. If you need to adjust the auto draft date, please let your teacher know and we'd be happy to adjust it.
What happens when I want to cancel my membership?- When you're ready to venture off and conquer the world, please send us an email to let us know. That will initiate our 30 day student send off count down. That lets us celebrate your success, wrap up your vocal studies, and connect one of the singers on our waiting list with their new teacher. No matter the reason why you'd like to cancel your membership, it's important to us to give you a proper sendoff.
Is my monthly payment the same in months with holidays? - Yes. During the school moths like December, January, and April we have scheduled breaks for our teachers to rest, recharge, and enjoy time with their families. This is factored into your monthly payments and it's why we say "up to four sessions a month."
What happens if I miss a weekly member session? - If you miss one of our live sessions, fear not! We record all of the lessons & upload them to our cloud. If you're a digital only singer, we drop those files in your google drive within 48 hours of each session.
What happens if I need to reschedule a one-on-one lesson? - At GRVC your lesson time is reserved for you and we don't offer reschedules or make up lessons. As a courtesy to your teacher, studio policy requires 48 hours notice if you're unable to attend your lesson.
