Pricing & Policies

Trust your self.

Singing is a physical skill, not an intellectual exercise, and it takes time to master.

Pricing

New singers receive a free, hour-long introductory lesson. This gives you a chance to see if you like the way I work without risking anything but your time.

Cancellation & Makeups

Cancellation

Cancellation policy is 24 hours notice or singer will be charged for lesson, with exceptions for illness or extreme circumstances.

Make-up Lessons

Mkeups are scheduled as possible. If a makeup cannot be arranged, the next month’s price will drop per missed makeup (so, at $240 a month, two missed lessons without a makeup becomes $120 for the following month)

As of September 2018, incoming students are offered lessons at $60 per hour, $40 per half-hour.

Rescheduling

If you need to cancel, I will try my best to schedule a make-up lesson, but I can't guarantee a day/time that will fit both of our schedules.

Sickness

Don't come to a lesson if you are sick.

If you come to your lesson sick, there is a good chance I will catch it and pass it on to my other singers.

Don't sing (if you can help it) when sick.

If you are under contract to perform and you can get your voice to function, then you must sing. Otherwise, don't sing. It will throw off your flow phonation and lead to imbalances in your mechanism.

Never audition if you are ill. You only have one chance to make a first impression, and if you are sick, your listeners will think that is all you can do - even if you tell them you are sick.

Physical Contact

Singing is a physical skill, not an intellectual exercise.

During the course of lessons, I might place my hand/hands on your:

Mid/Back, Rib Cage, Sternum, Maniburium of the Sternum, Larynx, Throat, Face & Head.

On very rare occasions, I might also place my hand on your epigastrium (the region between your sternum and your belly button)

I might also ask you to place your hand/hands on these places on myself as well.

The reasons for this are manifold, but the primary reason is that contact assists the brain and neuromuscular motor units in identifying and utilizing various parts the body.
