FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I find out a bit about each new singer and what their goals are, then either have them sing for me first, if they are a professional or review some fundamentals to see which area (s) the student needs to focus on to improve to get to the next level from where they are as compared to where they want to go... Learning to sing is a journey and I am your guide, but each voice is unique, so each journey must be as well. I also teach online via Skype for students who live out of the area.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a degree in Vocal Performance and pedagogy, as well as 35 years of study in the USA and Europe. In addition to singing I have a lot of performing experience and have studied acting, stagecraft, dance and Alexander Technique among others...


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Lessons are one hour in length and price is $65 per hour. I do my best to keep my rates both affordable and competitive.


How did you get started teaching?

I have been a teacher in one form or other my entire life, but I started teaching voice in 1990 and have been teaching full-time since 2000


What types of students have you worked with?

My studio is divided into a broad community of singers... About a third are Professional/Serious Classical/Opera singers, another third are Professional/Serious singers of various genres including Jazz, Blues, Indie Rock, Singer Songwriters and even some Country Western and the rest are beginners ages 13+ who want to learn to sing and/or freely express with their voice.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

The relationship between a student and voice teacher is a very personal one and needs to be the "Right Fit" so do some research online and review location, pricing, experience, philosophy, personality to narrow down your search, then try 1-3 lessons with one or more teachers to see if it feels right. If it's a good fit, the student should leave each lesson feeling positive about themselves and working with a teacher should feel that singing is getting easier, vocal range is expanding and the voice is improving towards the students goals; If the experience is "other" I suggest a new teacher be found.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What type of music do you want to sing?

(i.e. Some teachers will only work with Classical Style)

What days and times would you be available to study? Do you want to come weekly or less often?

What does the teacher charge per lesson and how do they expect payment?
