Voice Lessons

Kaleidoscope offers Private Voice Lessons in 30 minute, 45 minute, or 1 hour sessions.
  • Registration is currently closed for the 2023-2024 Season.

All private lessons are focused on the goal of having a singer produce a free sound without constriction and on building healthy vocal habits. Attention to posture and body alignment will be emphasized. Students are guided based on their own unique strengths and weaknesses as assessed by the instructor. Private voice lessons begin by addressing breath placement, resonance and diction. Technique levels build upon each individual’s acquired foundation and develop more refined and nuanced vocal skills. Depending on each individual student’s ability and potential, explorations will include increased breath control, expanded vocal range, purity in vowels, projection, vocal dynamics and techniques for singing a variety of musical genres. Individual assessments help establish vocal range and reinforce a healthy voice and breath management.

Voice Lesson Policies

The following policies are in effect for all voice lessons, over and above our General Registration Policies:

Maximum Instruction Time

45 and 60 minute private voice lessons are reserved for students age 12 years of age and older. Students younger than 12 years of age are restricted to a maximum 30 minutes of private instruction time in a single day. No exceptions.

Reserved Lesson Times

Individual class times can only be used by the student registered for that class time and cannot be switched, transferred, or used by another student. Class times are not transferable to other students unless prearranged in advance with the instructor and approved by the Education Director in writing. If a student does not attend their scheduled class due to illness, personal choice, or other extracurricular or school activity, their unused lesson time may be extended to other students for makeup lessons only at the discretion of the instructor. Reserved lesson times not used by the student registered for that class time cannot be shared or claimed by other students without prior written approval from the instructor.

Delivery of Instruction

All Voice Lessons at the Kaleidoscope Performing Arts Studio are delivered in-person. Online / Virtual lessons are not available.

Student Attendance & Missed / Canceled Lessons

If the student misses or cancels a lesson due to illness, personal choice or other extracurricular or school activities, the instructor may choose to arrange a make-up lesson, pending the instructor’s schedule and the availability of studio space. The instructor is, however, under no obligation to make up the lesson, particularly if insufficient notice (less than 24 hours) is given. Students are expected to be present for all scheduled lessons. This includes vacations, school/sport events, etc. There are no refunds for missed classes. Makeup lessons are not guaranteed and subject to availability. If an instructor cancels a private lesson, they are obliged to arrange a make-up the lesson at a time that is convenient for both the instructor and the student. If the instructor is unable to make up a lesson, the student will receive a credit on their account that can be refunded or applied to any future purchases. Scheduled Make-up lessons that are canceled or missed by a student will be considered made-up. Lessons cancelled due to inclement weather will be made up during the semester at a mutually-agreed upon time, or at the end of the term.

Withdrawals & Refunds

All withdrawal requests must be submitted in writing or by email to the Education Department and your instructor. Four weeks’ notice is required. The student may either take the four weeks’ worth of lessons, or forfeit them. Requests for retroactive withdrawals will not be considered. If a withdrawal is approved, the applicable prorated amount will be credited to your account, which can be refunded or applied to any future purchases. Requests to payout Credits on Account resulting from a withdrawal request may take up to 30 days to process. A $50.00 Cancellation Fee is applied to all cancellations.

Kaleidoscope Theatre for Young People and the Kaleidoscope Performing Arts Studio reserve the right to cancel, postpone, or combine classes and to limit registration or change instructors. Should insufficient registration cause the cancellation of a class, tuition fees will be refunded, or the student may transfer to another course if space is available
