Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
Each new student is welcomed into my studio in a very relaxed, comfortabe manner. We explore together their vocal range, work on breath management and I introduce vocal exercises to strengthen their tone, vocal quality and share with them ear training & music theory exercises.
I also encourage each vocal student to record each lesson so they can practice their vocal exercises often and hear their vocal progress over a short period of time!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am the recipient of numerous International Vocal Prizes that were attained through competiiton and I have taught and given numerous Master Classes and Vocal Lectures throughout the world.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
Most of my students budget and come to my studio for a monthly lesson. This lesson includes the services of a professional piano accompanist so my fee actually includes both the services of myself as the Vocal Teacher and an assisting professional piano accompanist.
