Initial fit session: Before we commit to work together, we need to know that we’re on the same page. Contact Rachel to schedule an initial 30-minute session so that we can discuss your vocal goals and establish common expectations for our time together. You are making an investment in your voice and you deserve to know about the investment up front. The initial session fee is $70 and an invoice will be sent to your email, payable upon receipt, immediately after the session time is agreed upon. This payment is required in order to fully reserve your appointment time. If payment is not received within 24-hours of making the appointment, the session will be canceled.

Regular tuition: 3-month subscription entitles you to nine 50-minute sessions, printing/copying services, consistent updates to available studio technology, outside session time spent on research and continuing education so I can continue to learn new, awesome, exciting and wonderful things that I pass on DIRECTLY to you.
$1000/single payment (a 3-month savings of $50)
$350/month installment plan (auto-pay required - you enter your credit card information and it always stays private)
For 3-month subscribers: additional drop-ins at $115/session
Drop-ins for non-subscribers: as available at $135/session
Any unused sessions at the end of the three-month period will be forfeit.
Automated Online Payments: Members of the studio enjoy automated online payments.
  • Invoices are sent and are due on the 1st of the month. Payments will be charged on the first day of the month. Students will receive a receipt via email when funds have been withdrawn. Checks/Cash: When paying by check, please make it payable to Velarde Voice. In order to avoid an autopayment debit, check or cash payment is due no later than the last day of the prior month.
