first lesson/ consultation
Interested in lessons but still have questions? A consult is a brief "trial" lesson that includes a voice evaluation, exercises specific to your voice to build strength, and a plan for your vocal development. Leave with a clear idea of how a typical lesson progresses, how I work as a teacher, and how I can help you reach your singing goals. Approximately 25-30 minutes in length.
Lesson consistency is the most effective way to build your voice and sharpen your skills. Meeting for a shorter time more frequently allows you to be sure that the time, energy, and resources you are investing are getting you to your goals faster. Time will be dedicated to singing a song or a difficult passage, but much of the lesson will be spent conditioning and exercising. Balance your voice on a consistent basis to build strength and agility each week or every other week.
Hour lessons allow for a good warm up, thorough exercise and conditioning, and a lot of time to work through music. If you are preparing for a performance or audition, a full hour will ensure that you have enough time to exercise, understand each concept, and have plenty of time to sing. An hour is recommended for those taking lessons every other week or that need to just "check in" now and then irregularly.
