The Accompanist Vocal Reels Terms and Conditions

Terms and Conditions for Vocal Reel Service by The Accompanist

Postponement and Cancellation Policy:

  • First Postponement: Clients are entitled to one free postponement of their appointment. It is imperative to note that this cancellation policy is rendered void if a client cancels within 2 days of their scheduled session without having provided the required backing tracks or other necessary materials. In such instances, the client will be required to remit a new deposit.

  • Subsequent Cancellations: For each subsequent cancellation, an incrimental fee of £50 will be added, which will be deducted from the final cost of £205 for the vocal reel service. For example:

a) First Cancellation: After the initial free postponement, the client will owe an additional £50, reducing the amount payable on the day to £155 (if the £50 deposit has been paid).

b) Second Cancellation: An additional £50 will be added, making the total amount payable on the day £105. 

c) Third Cancellation: Another £50 will be added, reducing the amount payable on the day to £55. 

d) Four Cancellations: After four cancellations, the policy is voided. Clients will be required to rebook their service, which involves paying a new initial deposit of £50, and the cancellation fee process will reset.

  • Refunds: Client-Initiated Cancellations: Refunds are not available after the deposit has been made. Subsequent cancellations are subject to the additional £50 fee, and no refunds will be provided for payments already made. b) Service-Initiated Rescheduling: If The Accompanist Vocal Reels needs to reschedule your appointment, refunds will be given at our discretion based on the circumstances and availability.

  • No-ShowsClients who do not show up for their scheduled appointment without prior notice will forfeit any payments made and will need to rebook their service with a new deposit and final payment.Exceptional CircumstancesWe understand that emergencies can occur. For cancellations due to extraordinary circumstances (e.g., medical emergencies, extreme weather conditions), please contact us directly. We will assess each situation on a case-by-case basis to determine if any fees can be waived.

General Terms & Conditions:

  1. Media Usage: The Accompanist vocal reels reserves the right to use clips from your reel in online advertising unless otherwise specified in a written agreement by the client. The client hereby grants The Accompanist vocal reels a non-exclusive, royalty-free license to utilize such clips for promotional purposes.

  2. Backing Tracks: Any request for recording or sourcing of backing tracks will incur additional charges, which will be communicated and agreed upon in a formal contract prior to the commencement of the service. Such charges shall be invoiced separately and shall be due and payable within the agreed-upon timeframe.

  3. Song Limitation: Clients are limited to selecting up to five 1-minute length song cuts per vocal reel. This limitation is agreed upon to ensure the efficient utilization of resources and to maintain the integrity and effectiveness of the final product.

  4. Listening, Assessment, and Order of Songs: Clients are required to listen back to and assess their audio and video within the 3-hour session. The client must also choose the take they will use during the session and determine the order of songs in their vocal reel before the end of the session.

This requirement ensures timely completion of the vocal reel and facilitates efficient post-production processes.

  5. Revision Policy: After the vocal reel has been delivered to the client, one revision (reordering videos, changing audio, etc.) is allowed free of charge.

This provision is agreed upon to delineate the scope of revisions and to ensure fair compensation for additional work beyond the initial agreement.
