How does it work?

 

There are a few options. Pick the one that works best for you! Not sure? Let's talk.

  • Private lessons at my home in Glenelg.

  • Private lessons at your home (for an additional travel fee).

  • Elder Conservatorium of Music Open Music Academy: With lessons in person at the Elder Conservatorium, this is a fantastic way to get quality music education from one of the oldest and best music institutions in the country. Lessons through the Open Music Academy include several performance, ensemble and workshop opportunities which help my students grow as musicians throughout the year. This lesson option is particularly recommended for high school students and those interested in pursuing music at University. Click here for more info.


How much is it?

 

The Open Music Academy has their own pricing (available on their website).

 

My own lesson pricing is the area standard $40 for a half hour and $70 for an hour. Travel fees apply if I go to your home. 

 
What happens in a typical voice lesson?

 

In the same way that all athletes warm up before training or competing, it is important for all singers to warm up the voice. I will lead you through science-based warm ups that will promote a healthy and long lasting voice.  Together we will then move on to technical exercises designed to help you build a foundation from which you will be able to sing a variety of repertoire, before working on music. I encourage my students to work on music that will challenge and excite them, and while I have a strong background in classical voice, I am happy to work across a range of styles.

For younger singers, or those less confident in their music reading ability, I am also happy to incorporate sight-singing and other musicianship activities into the lesson.
