For my Summer Students: studio policy doc and contact sheet

Everything is now available on the Voice Lessons page of my website! (click)

This information is for all students – new and continuing. Recital information is included in the policy doc. (I think that needs a more friendly name… I’ll work on that!)

New students – thank you in advance for having your Contact Sheet at your first lesson!

Returning students – you can wait until the fall to submit one unless you have any updates I need (phone numbers, emails addresses…)

Oh! I just noticed that I still had Studio 105 listed places – – – we meet in Studio 107 (they are side by side)

And just a friendly reminder for first lesson folks:

What to expect in the first voice lesson…

Regardless of your experience, everyone starts the first lesson the same way –

Singing! I ask that you come ready to sing something – anything at all! No need to stress over this – it can be Happy Birthday, your favorite hymn, ‘Don’t Cry for me Argentina’, or your favorite Beatles tune. I just want to hear you sing!

Breathing! We will dive right in to connecting your voice to your breath.

Vocalizing! We will ‘play’ with our voices and explore vocal range and ease in matching pitch.

As lessons progress basic keyboard skills and musicianship will be developed. Whether or not you can read music when you start, you’ll be well on your way in no time at all. Singers are musicians, too! Depending on the interest of each student, this can be a bigger or smaller part of the lessons. We’ll find what is right for you in your vocal and musical education.

As always, let me know if you have any questions. Otherwise, see you this week!

Ciao – E
