A Note on Fees....

Fees cover prep time, recording of song tracks, space rental, administrative time, ongoing communication with singers, planning and my time for community singing events, and in the case of some sessions...travel. 

**NEW** To keep FEES at the present rate while being fair to all, there will be no longer be rate deductions for personal travel weeks/holidays or late starts/early endings. Think of the fees as a membership. The perks of being registered for the full session are; access to song tracks, ongoing communication, participation in community sing outs, and being part of the Rhythm & Song community. With this in mind, if you can only join us half way through the season, please contact me. I'm happy to discuss.

FLEXIBILITY  Once registered for the season, singers are welcome to attend as many sessions in a week as they choose, in any location for no extra fee. This allows you to make up a missed session or sing more often. 

SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS If you are unable to pay the full fee due to limited income - please email me or speak with me privately and I'd be happy to work  something out. If you feel you have a unique situation and would like to discuss - please contact me. I am always open to discuss. Tel: 613-256-8809 or randsalmonte@gmail.com  

PAYMENT INFO   E-transfer, cheques, and cash accepted.

**NEW** REFUNDS - If you are unable to complete a series of sessions and have paid the full fee, a refund will be considered if I am contacted before the seasonal sessions end. Refunds will only include the remaining sessions moving forward once I have been contacted. Refunds cannot be made once an seasonal session is complete.
