These are 30-minute, one-on-one voice lessons that meet once a week. The age range for this class is flexible. If you have an 8-year old who is ready for private lessons and regular practicing, then they are welcome to take this class. Lessons are tailored to the student. In the first lesson, I will ask the student about their experience and goals for singing which will help determine how to structure their lessons. Students will learn about and work on their vocal range, ear training, breath...
Students will improve their stage presence, vocal and emotional expression, intonation (ability to sing on pitch), breath support, tone production, diction, placement and much more. Students will strengthen their acting skills and learn how to create a compelling performance. Students will learn about healthy vocal production and vocal care because they are essential to being able to sing well.

Students will be expected to print out sheet music and will need to spend time marking their music, memorizing lyrics, practicing vocal exercises and breath work, and rehearsing any song they are assigned. Students may spend anywhere from 15-30 minutes per day, 4 to 7 days each week practicing or working on vocal assignments. Amount of time spent is flexible and dependent upon the student's goals and age.
1. You must have reliable, strong internet connectivity so that the sound is steady and clear. 2. Students will need to have some kind of Bluetooth speaker to play tracks for their songs. If you do not have a Bluetooth speaker, you may use a separate tablet or phone to play the tracks. 3. Students will also be required to print out sheet music. Most often, PDFs of sheet music will be uploaded to the classroom page free of charge, however, there may be a song that the student wishes to work on that is not in my library. That sheet music and/or tracks may need to be purchased and/or downloaded online. I always do my best to keep those costs extremely low by sharing from my own library of music when possible.
No formal progress assessment is given. Progression is assessed weekly by the teacher and lessons are adjusted accordingly.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, students may need to use musicnotes.com as a sheet music resource and sometimes youtube for a resource for music tracks.
