Teaching Info

In an initial consultation lesson 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.
