At least 12 hours notice must be given by phoning/texting for lessons to be made up on another day.
If the teacher is unable to take the lesson due to illness or any other unforeseen circumstance, a make up lesson or double lesson will be arranged asap
Lessons are automatically forfeited if a student fails to attend a lesson and makes no effort to contact the teacher beforehand.
Lessons will NOT be made up if the teacher is contacted only a short time before a scheduled lesson.
Each lesson is individually catered to the student. Their age, ability, style and problem areas are all factored into each lesson. Students will work on fixing problem areas as well as increasing tone, range, emotion, vibrato control and more. Performance work and mic technique will also be a part of the training. Performance opportunities will be offered to those students who are prepared and ready to sing in front of an audience, whether it is big or small!
Diverse training styles:
Students who love the theatre and want to audition for shows will work on theatre technique (very different to contemporary singing). If you like country, you will be shown how to move your voice to achieve the “country” sound. R’n’B, soul sounds are also very different. Every genre has it’s unique style that you can learn. Be diverse and have the ability to change the way you sing to suit the style of the song.
Learn how your voice works, learn what vocal registers are, where should your voice resonate in your face and body. How to change tone, control vibrato, voice placement. Understand mix verses belt. Voice anatomy knowledge will help you to become a better singer no matter what your ability. Knowledge you will take with you wherever you want your voice to take you!
