Professional Policies

When you join our musical family, I employ all of my teaching resources to help you achieve your goals.  In return, I ask for total concentration during lessons, dedication to practice and an open mind to learn new things.  I believe in making the learning environment a fun,  safe place to try without judgment.  For it is in the singing, that we find our voice.

Professional Policies

Time:  Out of courtesy for your fellow musicians,  please be on time.  I will not run behind to teach a full hour if one is late.  The following student, who is on time,  deserves to have their lesson on time.  In the professional world,  (AGMA,  AEA,  SAG)  the artist would be fined.

24 Hour Cancellation Policy:  If you cancel less than 24 hours, you may be charged for that lesson.  Situations can arise last minute, but if you find that you are feeling sick or running late,  please text or call me.  If you inform me of your tardiness or cancellation in a timely manner, we can make up your time at a later date.

Equipment: A piano or some type of keyboard instrument is useful for study so you can practice at home; a water bottle (a well hydrated artist is an healthy artist); a recording device to record lessons and oneself during practice.

Put your music in a 3 ring binder (I have lots of learning tools!), bring a pencil to take notes and wear comfortable clothing so you can breathe!  I suggest making a place in your home that is your musical sanctuary,  where you can practice and look forward to visiting everyday for at least 30 minutes.

Music – I encourage you to bring songs that you would like to learn.  As I get to know your voice, will also suggest repertoire.  I am the only voice/piano/acting teacher I know, that provides materials for her students.  And I can suggest websites, resources where you can purchase music and aides to help you learn your repertoire.

==================================================

I enjoy all types of music. I encourage you to listen to a variety of music, analyze what is good about it  and keep a journal to notate your thoughts, practice and progress.

I look forward to working with you for nothing makes me happier than to see you grow as an Artist!
