FAQ

Most commonly asked questions answered here:

WHAT TYPE OF SINGERS DO YOU WORK WITH?

I work best with students who are interested in being leaders in their own learning.

While I offer many tools, ideas, and techniques to explore in the studio, those who have the drive and curiosity to direct their learning outside of the studio are well-suited for my teaching style. 

Regardless of age, demographic, skill, etc... deeply curious learners are always welcome at Free to Sing!

I welcome singers of any genre and style into my studio, but I have a special passion for contemporary genres, musical theater and the choral/classical arts.

DO YOU TEACH CHILDREN?

I have received ongoing training and education in working with adolescent voices.

As a parent myself, I recognize and celebrate the creativity and genius that each child possesses.

Voice lessons for children are taught differently, as our focus is on laying a strong foundation for life-long singing and music making.

I use curriculum from experts in the child vocal pedagogy field, and I also offer group voice lessons for

children ages 7-9.

WHAT IF CAN'T SING ON PITCH!?

Regardless of your current abilities, any one who desires to learn and study the voice can and should!

Singing is not something that just 'some people' can do. It is a motor skill that can be developed with time, focus, and repetition.

I honor each individual student based on your current skill set and the goals you might have.

I do not apply a 'one-size fits all' approach to my teaching.

ARE VOICE LESSONS REALLY WORTH IT? WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Learning to sing is an incredible lifetime investment.

Benefits of singing and performing include:

greater self-confidence; improved concentration; improved memory and cognitive skills; reduced stress and anxiety (and more!)

In addition to regular lessons, I also offer performance opportunities for clients,

valuable resources for you to explore outside of the studio, workshops, masterclasses, and more!

DO YOU OFFER MAKE UP LESSONS?

I do not offer make ups for cancellations unless you have an illness or emergency.

If you must cancel for those reasons, I will ask for you to reschedule via my Calendly based on my current availability.

If you have paid for a lesson and must cancel for an illness or emergency, I will credit you.

Before you book a session with me, please double check your calendar and make sure you are committing to a time

that works with your schedule.

I ask that you arrive 5 minutes before your scheduled time to use the restroom, hydrate, etc.

If you are late, I will not be able to adjust my schedule as I am often seeing students back to back.

While I understand there are often factors out of our control (weather, traffic, etc..), I ask that you do your best to consider these factors when both scheduling and traveling to my studio space.

HOW DO YOU HANDLE PAYMENT?

Payment is typically processed through Square.

I will email your invoice no later than 24 hours before our meeting,

and you will be required to pay your invoice before entering my studio space.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding my payment methods, please feel free to share them with me during our discovery call that takes place before we meet in person.
