Zamar Music Ministries - Studio Policies, Terms & Conditions
The following policies insure that all sessions are conducted in the most professional manner while providing our client a creative and comfortable environment.
DEPOSIT/REQUESTING TIME SLOT
Session slots are booked according to Studio availability. A confirmed session slot between client and studio is considered a “booked session” and require a twenty-four (24) hour notification of time change or cancellation.
Sessions are booked and billed by the hour and per engineer at a $35 rate (subject to change) unless other rates have been negotiated. In the event that a session runs longer than the original scheduled time, exceeding time will be booked at an additional rate in half hour increments.
It is recommended that new clients tour the studio prior to their first session. During this time we can discuss the parameters of your session and make a plan to ensure everything runs smoothly.
START/END AND SESSION TIMES
The session clock begins at the scheduled time that both parties agree upon. If you arrive early and the studio can accommodate an early start, then the session clock will begin at that time. If you are late for any reason, you will be charged from the scheduled session start time, with no exceptions. Please call if you are going to be late! Set up time will be billed at regular studio rates unless other arrangements are agreed to. This includes load-in and instrument setup, microphone placement, level setting, media transfer, etc.
Unforeseen problems can happen. If session downtime occurs at the fault of the studios equipment, that time will not be billed.
