What do I have to bring to my lesson?
A bottle of water is a must, your notes/folder and or Ipad with your music.
Do you teach 2 people or groups?
In general, our private vocal coaching lessons are one on one. For those, wanting groups classes Check out our Group Class page with all the details.
Can parents stay to watch and listen?
We find that when a parent stays with a student learning a lot of children will close up and not learn as well. We suggest to most parents to drop off their children or wait outside. Parents should not be seen or express an opinion during the lesson as it interrupts the child's learning. Parents upon prior request are able to sit in and watch/listen to their child's progress if all parties feel comfortable doing so to which we welcome this at the end of the lesson.
Do I have to book my lessons Online or can I call the studio to book?
You can do either. Our new online booking system is available 24hrs/7 days a week. Here you can book, move & cancel your lessons.
Do you offer any try before you buy lesson?
Yes. Trial Vocal Assessment is the perfect way for you to get to know your vocal coach. The lesson is only $30 for a 30min session.
Do your teachers have a blue card to work with children?
Yes we all do. We have a positive notice blue card for child-related employment.
