So how does it all work?
1. Schedule Your Initial Session
If you consider singing lessons or vocal coaching with me (no matter if in person or online), the first step is to book an initial session via my booking system below (you can forego this step if you are interested in “Sing me a Song!”, although you might still find it helpful).
The duration of your first session depends on your age and your requirements as outlined on the below booking page. If you are unsure what to book, I am happy to answer your questions in advance).
We will use this initial session to get to know each other:
- I will do a vocal assessment with you, and we can work through a song of your choice so I get an idea about your current stage of vocal development.
- You get to know my teaching style and can decide if my studio fulfils your expectations.
- Together, we will then come up with an action plan towards reaching your musical and vocal goals.
If you cannot find a suitable slot during times of high booking volume, please contact me. I will either put you on my waiting list, or we will try to figure out a short term solution to get you started.
2. Book A Lesson Package Or Subscription
If you want to advance as a singer or creative artist, you need to fully commit and hold yourself accountable. The best way to do this is to attend regularly so good vocal habits can be established.
My studio values commitment and offers great value lesson packages and monthly subscriptions to students who attend regularly (weekly or fortnightly).
Packages are for students who are committing to weekly attendance and not intended to be used like a “punch card”/stretched out over a long period of time (hence they have an expiration date).
Subscription pricing is calculated based on 40 service weeks per year, not the amount of lessons you take in any given month. So you don’t need to pay any extra if you get an additional lesson in months with 5 weeks, or if you receive more than 40 weeks of service per year. For this reason, holidays and periods of absence are paid through.
Both lesson packages and subscriptions offer enough flexibility to plan your sessions around work or school commitments – it is up to you if you prefer a fixed slot or would rather book appointment to appointment.
Currently available subscriptions and packages
Sing me a Song!
The vocal coaching subscription with a difference: This is not a lesson-, but a feedback model. Every week, you send me a Marco Polo video of your singing. I will send you a video with tips and “homework” that you will practise for your next submission.
Your average weekly investment/year: £17
My monthly subscription model (minimum commitment 3 months) for singers who wish to attend fortnightly for 60 minutes, or singers under 16 who attend weekly for 30 minutes. Between your sessions, you have access to me via Marco Polo for feedback.
Your average weekly investment/year: £23
The option for committed singers who would like to attend weekly. You purchase a block of time and need to commit to attending at least once weekly (twice is possible) for at least 60 minutes. Time not taken within 3 months will expire.
Your minimum weekly investment: £35
3. Spark – Keep It Flexible With Drop-in Sessions
If you are over 16 and regular attendance is tricky for you, please book drop-in sessions via the diary above. These sessions offer high flexibility and are therefore usually only suitable for more experienced singers: Please bear in mind that for beginning singers, reasonable progress is linked to regular attendance – you take weekly piano lessons when you start out, and the same holds true for singing.
4. Looking For A Gift Voucher?
If you want to give the gift of music (and confidence!) to the singer, actor or speaker in your life, why not purchase a gift voucher?
Choose the number of lessons you would like to give as a gift (I recommend no more than 5), and I will send an online gift voucher for the specified number of lessons within 24 hours (working days only).
(Gift vouchers need to be redeemed within 12 months of purchase, and no monetary refunds will be given on lessons not taken.)
