Kirkeiner Music Studio Evening Lesson Policy Mrs. Marie Kirkeiner

**Please make sure your child can match pitch prior to signing up for vocal technique lessons***** 

Voice Lesson Fees for Evening lessons:

  • $30 per lesson to be paid monthly at the first lesson of the month. Some months may vary, and I will communicate with parents about upcoming fees that are due. Most months have $120.00 per month tuition. 
  • Paying monthly assures that your child keeps a timeslot for lessons. Students risk dismissal after payment is 2 weeks late
  • Most lessons are once weekly for 30 minutes.
  • Checks may be brought to lessons for payment. I am on Venmo with the name Marie Kirkeiner.

Missed Lessons:

  • Parents are essentially reserving a time-slot for their child when they enroll in lessons for the school year.
  • I create a make-up time once a semester as needed. It will be during my personal availability.
  • If your child is sick or your family is impacted for a long period due to the Covid-19 illness, please communicate with me right away, and I will discuss solutions.


  • Voice Students: Each voice student needs a binder with pockets, which he/she will bring to each lesson, practice charts, (I give them), pencil, FLASH DRIVE, sheet music and any recordings. (1-inch binder with pockets is ideal) Voice students will purchase various books as needed.
  • Piano Students: We will purchase a Lesson Book, Recital Book, and Theory Book for your curriculum.


  • Voice: Technique music for developing good vocal health (tone production, vowel shaping, diction, etc.)
  • Voice: A variety of songs which facilitate good technique will be used: Easy Classical, Folk, Broadway, and Contemporary.
  • Piano: We will work on musicianship with the goal of independent music literacy for each student. (Reading Rhythms, Pitches, and Chords) Alfred Method Books teach intervals and chords in sequence.
  • All: Please provide a space in your home where your child can practice regularly, even if it’s his/her bedroom.
  • All: Practicing is essential for success!  All students should come prepared and ready to work each week.
  • Combination lessons are available and highly recommended. (Piano; Voice; Guitar; Ukulele)


ISSMA Solo and Ensemble Contest and/or NFMC Junior Festival Participation is Encouraged:

  • Voice Students: I will help prepare your child for ISSMA Solo and Ensemble. (Indiana State School Music Association District Festival) Timeline: Early February (Saturday Feb. 1 or Feb. 8) This is organized through your child’s school choir director.
