Singing As A Way Of Life!
As a Voice Teacher, I meet people of many ages and abilities who all love to sing. Many are on a professional track, some enjoy singing as a hobby and some are exploring their singing voice for the first time. It has been my experience that most people who want to sing - actually can sing. While talent is wonderful, inspiration and the desire to communicate are also important components in beautiful singing. As Technique is established, each singer develops an individual sound and style. Voice training can be a wonderfully practical endeavor as well as a creative journey without a finite ending point. Courage, perseverance and an open mind are key to becoming a great singer. Singing unites mind, body, and spirit. It can carry us to a place unreachable by any other path.
Lessons are offered to all ages and voice types. Instruction is tailored to each individual. Although 15 is generally a good age to begin voice study, each voice matures according to its own schedule! If there is any question, an initial lesson can determine the best way to proceed.
Lessons may be scheduled according to availability. Usually once per week. Special arrangements can be made for singers who have variable schedules. Regular attendance as well as steady practice will yield the best results.
The recording of the lesson can also be a helpful tool. Students may bring an SD Card (1-4g) for use in digital recording. This recording can then be downloaded to computer, cd or mp3 player for playback.
Payment by cash or check, either in advance, or at the time of the lesson is requested.
The Lesson Time is reserved exclusively for the student. 24 hour advance notice of cancellation is required. The student must pay for any lessons not cancelled in advance. In this, as in all things, there is also grace and sometimes forgiveness!
The student should bring their music and all instructional materials to each lesson. Assistance will be provided in ordering music as necessary.
