Frequently Asked Questions
How do I make the payment?
When you make an appointment with me you must pay for the 1st hour in advance. (I process all transactions through bank transfer.)
What If the appointment is cancelled?
Cancellations: If you do not show up, or call at your scheduled appointment time, you will forfeit your first-hour deposit, unless you contact me within 24 hours of your appointment. If you are late, without a reasonable excuse, you will forfeit the late minutes from your first hour of consultation.
Can I reschedule the appointment?
You will not lose your deposit of €100 if you need to reschedule and have contacted me to rearrange your appointment within 24 hours of your originally scheduled appointment
Why this policy?
Over the years more and more ‘potential’ clients have missed their appointments and not notified me that they decided to cancel. As a businesswoman, this obviously affects my income and my time is wasted, and as far as professionalism goes, this gives you a bad reputation when you are trying to gain a positive reputation. Do NOT waste people’s time.
Always remember that in this crazy, and very competitive music industry there are thousands of artists and bands trying to just get their music listened to, let alone become a star. It takes a lot of work on your part to get noticed. So, being a professional artist who is polite, open-minded, as well as courteous, punctual, and reliable can take you a long way to your dreams of success.
I will do my part to set you on the right path, and all I ask from you is the same professionalism in return.
