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 (the duration depends on your age and your requirements as outlined on the 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
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 to students who attend regularly (weekly or fortnightly) at the DUMBARTON STUDIO. You will enjoy savings of up to 12.5% compared to individual bookings, depending on package.
These packages are for students who are committing to regular 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).
Lesson packages 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.
If you would like to book a lesson package, we will discuss your best options during your initial session.
3. 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 booking system or at the studio. 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.)
