• How it works.

    • LESSON PACKAGES

      Choose a number of months per membership term with a guaranteed amount of lessons. Terms of 3, 6, and 12 months are available for you (1-month packages are also available, see below). We guarantee 9/18/36 lessons per booked membership term.

    • REGULAR LESSONS

      and classes are scheduled for 1 x weekly. Kara Johnstad schedules regular sessions for 1 x weekly or 2 x monthly.

    • EXTRA LESSON PACKAGES

      If the guaranteed number of lessons is used up prematurely during the booked term, you can purchase an additional lesson package as an option. Per lesson, an additional lesson package is usually significantly less expensive than individual lessons; see the price table above. This offer is limited to students on an active monthly plan.

    • USAGE DURING THE BOOKED TERM

      You must take your lessons during the booked term (an average of 3 lessons per month).  You can carry any remaining lesson over to the following term if you renew your membership plan for another term or change it to a longer and more favorable term.

    • PREPAID CARDS

      10-Pack Cards offer flexible visits. You need to schedule each lesson or class. Buy a new one every time your digital punch card is used, or have it automatically reissued.

    • PRICES FOR SINGLE VISITS

    • ONGOING TEACHING

      Lessons and classes are held throughout the year. Also on weekends and during vacation periods.

    • MAXIMUM FLEXIBILITY

      For children and teenagers, lessons are usually once per week in a regularly scheduled time slot. For adults, we offer a weekly recurring reserved lesson time option and a flexible book-as-you-go lesson structure that allows you to fit in your music time conveniently around the rest of your busy schedule.

    • IN-PERSON or ONLINE - You Can Choose at Any time.

      Online lessons are helpful not only for those students who do not live in our teaching region or cannot come to our music classrooms for their regular one-on-one lessons due to an unforeseen event but increasingly for full-time online students from around the world.

    • GROUP EVENTS

      Classes, courses, and other group events usually take place if at least 5 participants have registered.

    • HOLIDAYS, BRIDGING DAYS, VACATION PERIODS

      Holidays, bridging days, or vacation periods are not counted and these lessons and classes remain in the lesson package. 

    • SCHOOL CHILDREN AND SCHOOL VACATIONS

      School children or persons bound to the Berlin school vacations can take time off during school vacations or can continue their regular singing and music lessons. This is especially useful for school children whose school vacations differ from the general Berlin school vacation calendar.  If you plan ahead, missed appointments due to school vacation will be a thing of the past from now on. 
      NOTE: You need to give us notice at least 10 days before your next lesson day if you want to clear your schedule during your school vacations.

    • SHORT TERM EVENTS

      Purchase is required to enrol in short-term events like drop-in classes, workshops, seminars or concerts, and prepaid courses. Unless otherwise agreed, the tuition or event fee is to be paid in advance and shall be due on the day of the event at the latest. NOTE: The School Of Voice does not accept cash payments.

    • 10 DAY CANCELATION POLICY

      You may cancel your upcoming appointment or class up to 10 days prior to the event date by notifying the school administration, preferably by cancelling in your own online account or by emailing office@schoolofvoice.berlin. Cancelations due to illness are exempt if a doctor's note is provided within 24 hours prior to the start of the appointment. The doctor's note must be received by the school administration prior to the class date. Class dates (event registrations) canceled in a timely manner and in proper form will not be counted. If you plan ahead, missed appointments due to official or private obligations, work or business trips, vacation, lack of childcare or similar reasons will be a thing of the past from now on.

    • CAN I CHANGE THE TERM OF MY CONTRACT AT A LATER DATE?

      A change to a longer and more favorable term is possible at any time before the next membership fee is due. In this case, we do not insist on adherence to the previously agreed term. Cancellation of the old contract is not required. The change to a shorter term is possible after the expiration of the previously agreed term. Termination of the old contract is not required.

    • TERMINATION / EXTENSION

      If not canceled 4 weeks before the end of the term (initial term), the teaching agreement is extended for an indefinite period and can then be terminated with 4 weeks' notice. After the end of the initial term, the respective tuition fee for the 1-month contract term applies. If the customer wishes to continue to secure the lower price for a further fixed term agreement, an active re-registration by the customer for a further fixed term (3/6/12 months) is required.

    • COPYRIGHT LICENSE

      In Germany, according to § 53 Abs. 4 UrhG (German Copyright Act), photocopying of sheet music is prohibited. By concluding a license agreement with VG Musikedition, a copyright collecting society, our students have the opportunity to legally exploit protected works in a simple manner. The School Of Voice has acquired the right for its Participants to make limited photocopies of sheet music (and lyrics) for use in lessons and performances. For our students, this is a legal and practical exception to the absolute ban on photocopying. GEMA charges a separate license fee per student, which is already covered by the payment of the tuition fee.
