    The teachers are excellent with a very comfortable atmosphere.

    I took voice lessons with Liya at Shock City and I had an excellent experience. I'm a singer/songwriter and I had never had formal voice lessons before. I learned valuable exercises to help improve my voice and sound my best. I've loved singing now more than I ever have. I would highly recommend lessons at Shock City!

    I really enjoyed my vocal lessons. Liya was very knowledgeable and I learned a lot of new techniques that I apply to my vocals all the time now. I appreciated her level of expertise and experience. She was super nice and fun to work with. I would have liked to do more in the studio. I was also expecting to have a vocal coach who was a full accompanist, even though Liya and I still had great lessons.

    As a karaoke addict and musical theatre lover, I finally decided I was going to take the plunge into taking singing lessons. I looked around at several options in the St. Louis area, but Shock City was the only place that looked like they knew what they were doing, at a reasonable price. I've been taking lessons for a few weeks now and I'M SO GLAD THAT I CHOSE THEM. From the get-go, Genny was incredibly responsive and thorough in explaining all of my options. I'm a recent college grad that works at a nonprofit, I don't have a ton of money to spend. Genny helped craft a pricing option for me that worked with my budget, and worked with me to find an instructor that was tailored to my specific goals. She led me to find an instructor, Liya, who has been AWESOME. Already on our first meeting, she made me feel comfortable and has brought a fun and playful attitude to our lessons in addition to her vast expertise. They record all of your lessons for you, so that you can review them and practice on your own time, and you can even message your instructor and ask questions through their TeacherZone program. I've already made significant improvements and I'm having a ton of fun! Thanks Shock City for giving me a platform to pursue my dreams!

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

We will do a formal intake for each new student.  It is important that we place each student with the instructor that is most capatible with their level and goals.

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

Each of our instructors hold a bachelors or masters degree in music and specifically in the instrument in which they teach.  The entire staff is active in the community in music performance and is involved in local bands, plays in the community, or tours worldwide.  

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

We offer lessons in 30, 45, and 60 minute increments.  Generally, lessons are booked for an entire session, which usually consists of 12 lessons.  If joining mid-session, the enrollment will be pro-rated.
