General

Where do you teach?

I teach from my flat in Manchester city centre about a 2 min walk from Piccadilly Gardens. Please bear in mind that I've got two cats.

Where can I park?

There is a car park on Tib Street (M4 1PD), about a 1 minute walk from the flat.

What do I do once I'm there?

Please use the doorbell left of the door to enter, as I probably won't hear you knocking on my flat door if I'm not listening out for it. You can use the down arrow to find the flat number and the bell button to ring the doorbell. Try to arrive exactly on time for your scheduled lesson time, as I am likely to be with another student upon your arrival.

What does a singing lesson cost?

£25 for a 1 hour singing lesson
£20 for a 45 min singing lesson
£15 for a 30 min singing lesson

How do I pay for my lesson?

All lessons are payable in full online upon booking a lesson. I use a service called Stripe which is a very safe payment service and with which you can save your card details to make the payment easier. 

What do I do if I'm running late?

Please let me know if you are running late as soon as possible. I will not be able to extend or make up the missed lesson time.

Until when can I reschedule my lesson?

You can reschedule your lesson online up to 24 hours prior to the scheduled time of your lesson. Once rescheduled your payment will automatically transfer to the new lesson time.

What do I do when I have to cancel my lesson?

Any lessons cancelled with less than 24 hours’ notice prior to the scheduled time will be charged at the full lesson rate, unless there are exceptional circumstances or illness. There are no refunds for missed lessons. 

 

Booking

How do I book a lesson?

You can book lessons on my online booking system. If you're a new student, please contact me before booking any lessons. You can book any times that come up on the booking system, so feel free to choose any time that works best for you. I would suggest working regularly, preferably on a weekly basis, as the voice is a muscle which needs regular training. If you can't find any times that work, contact me on singinglessons@sarahfoubert.com

How do I pick a fixed weekly time and book my lessons?

If you don't have a lot of availability it might be a good idea to book a couple of lessons in advance or pick a fixed weekly slot to make sure you can come regularly. 

  • go to the scheduling page by clicking here

  • choose the duration of the lesson you want

  • click on the time you would like to come in the first week

  • click <RECURRING...>

  • choose the amount of lessons you would like the recurring lesson to happen (be aware that you will have to pay for it all at the end)

  • click <ADD RECURRING TIMES>

  • If you are happy with this selection of times, click <CONTINUE>

  • Fill in your information

  • If you've bought a package for 10 lessons, click <REDEEM COUPON OR PACKAGE> if not click <PAY NOW>


Picking a set weekly time and book them in 1 go

You can now pick a set weekly or fortnightly time to come for a lesson and book all these lessons in 1 go. This might be a very handy option if you only have a certain time in the week when you can come for your lesson or if you just like the idea of a set time. Follow the instructions to set a weekly time and book a number of lessons in 1 go:

  • go to the scheduling page by clicking here

  • choose the duration of the lesson you want

  • click on the time you would like to come in the first week

  • click <RECURRING...>

  • choose the amount of lessons you would like the recurring lesson to happen (be aware that you will have to pay for it all at the end)

  • click <ADD RECURRING TIMES>

  • If you are happy with this selection of times, click <CONTINUE> 

  • Fill in your information

  • If you've bought a package for 10 lessons, click <REDEEM COUPON OR PACKAGE> if not click <PAY NOW>

Booking several lessons in 1 go

The update you've all been waiting for, the option to book several lessons in one go! This works much the same as picking a set weekly time. Whatever you do, DON'T CLICK CONTINUE until you're ready to continue to the payment. If you click it before you'll have to start from scratch. 

  • go to the scheduling page by clicking here

  • choose the duration of the lesson you want

  • click on the time you would like to come in the first week

  • click <RECURRING...>

  • click <CHOOSE ADDITIONAL TIME>

  • You will now see your first added time added above the continue button

  • click the time you want to book another lesson

  • If you want to book another time: click <CHOOSE ADDITIONAL TIME> again

  • if you're ready after this one: click <CONTINUE>

  • Fill in your information

  • If you've bought a package for 10 lessons, click <REDEEM COUPON OR PACKAGE> if not click <PAY NOW>


<SCHEDULE ANOTHER APPOINTMENT> button

There's now a <SCHEDULE ANOTHER APPOINTMENT> at the end if you've booked all your lessons, but you realise that after you've paid and confirmed everything, you've forgotten one,
you can go back and book another.
