Q & A

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

First, we chat a bit to to understand where you're coming from and where you want to go.  If you already have goals, we want to make sure we're working toward them.  If you want our help developing goals, we're happy to do that.  If you just want to have fun, that's great too!  We just want to make sure you're getting what you're paying for, every single lesson.  We also like to know what kind of training you've already had (if any), so we can build on that.  And we like to hear you play or sing something so we can make a plan for what to work on first.


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

We have seven teachers with different levels and types of music education and experience.  Across our staff we have college and/or graduate-level study in vocal performance, music composition, and vocal pedagogy; audio engineering; professional mixing and mastering; and work with major labels and major label bands.  Feel free to ask for details about the teacher you're interested in, or check us out on the website by clicking on the "About" link and then "Our Teachers."


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

We have a tiered pricing system for lessons that reflects the teacher's level of experience, length of lesson, and lesson frequency.  The most cost-effective (but least flexible) lessons are the Monthly Pass options, which start at $25 per half-hour voice lesson.  The most flexible (but most expensive) lessons are the A La Carte lessons, which start at $35 per half-hour voice lesson.  Find full details by going to our website and clicking on "Rates". Travel charges are extra and start at $20/lesson.


What types of students have you worked with?

Our students tend to be fun people who are serious about music.  We serve singers all over Colorado’s Front Range:  Boulder, Denver, Longmont, Niwot, Gunbarrel, Louisville, Lafayette, Erie, Frederick, Superior, Westminster, Broomfield, Thornton, Arvada, Golden, and Fort Collins.  We have also worked with students all over the world from Europe to Australia.

In Colorado, we’ve worked with members of The String Cheese Incident, Firefall, Filthy T, Pride in Pieces, Kill Paris, Hey Lady!, Roniit, Jacob Larson, Jaden Carlson, Princess, Behaving Badly, Starcar Sunday, Public Display of Aggression, Howl at the Moon piano bar, and many other bands. We have also worked with two top American Idol finalists, singers in Europe and Australia, and bands signed to labels including Atlantic, Elektra, Immortal, Wind Up, Curb, Blind Bat, S-Curve, Victory, Blues Legacy and J Records.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently found out that a client who had given up on her career - but who came to us a year ago to restart lessons and restart her career - is getting hired to play a festival outside Paris this summer!  There is nothing more exciting and rewarding than seeing clients' dreams come true.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

We have a free PDF available to help you decide which voice teacher or school is right for you.  Download it from our home page.  (Scroll down a bit - it's in the middle of the page.)  But the biggest thing I would caution is not to pick your teacher based on price alone.  You can spend much more time and money in the long run with a teacher who doesn't know what they're doing, than with a teacher who does.  For example, I know a student who took a year of voice lessons with an inexpensive teacher and saw NO improvement; but then she took just a few very expensive lessons with an accomplished teacher and experienced a complete revolution vocally.


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

Genre is not as important as you might think, but you should probably hire a teacher who teaches popular music if you want to sing popular music (as opposed to classical music). You might want to look at whether the teacher or studio offers performance opportunities as well - and what those opportunities look like.  At our studio, we book gigs for our students - real ones, not sterile "recitals."  And what other services does the teacher or studio provide?  If you have questions about songwriting, booking gigs, putting together a band, can they help?  Feel free to download our free PDF that addresses all these questions and more in depth, on our homepage at http://www.performancehigh.net (scroll down a bit).
