Teaching Info

In a first meeting we will find out where you are and where you want to go with your singing. We will define your goals together and create a basic plan to help you achieve them.

Your goals might be:

  • to develop a healthy vocal technique, finding your own voice, its strengths and weaknesses
  • to work on intonation and ear training
  • to become more confident in your performance
  • to sing your favorite songs while working on the above or just for your own pleasure
  • to work on songs in more detail, focusing on interpretation or improvisation
  • to learn some basic piano to accompany yourself while you’re singing
  • to record your singing for your own pleasure or as a way to analyze and improve your performance
  • to get some help or feedback on songs you’ve been writing yourself

In any case, my goal will be to create a fun and supportive environment to make you feel at ease with your singing.

Singing is a miracle and a life long journey, let’s make it happen now!

Available lesson times are Monday to Friday between 9am – 7pm.
