Q: Do online lessons really work?
A: As long as you are a student who is serious about learning, online lessons can be a great way to take lessons if you live far away, or for whatever reason, you can't make it to a lesson at my studio. Of course as with any lessons, practice is what really counts.
Q: What equipment do I need for an online lesson?
A: You will need a camera (both built-in and attached are fine), a good working microphone, and a pair of headphones.
Q: I'm nervous to sing or play piano in public, can you help me?
A: Of course I can! Lessons are a great way to gain confidence, and gaining confidence can help with stage fright. Learning the best ways to focus on controlling your fears, and starting out with small performances, are some ways I can help you ease your anxiety. Feel free to contact me and we can discuss a plan of action.
Q: What happens if I miss a lesson?
A: It is important to try and make your regular lesson times, as this will help you improve. However, I understand that things come up and you may have to reschedule. I require a four hour notice for any missed lessons. To read more about my policies, click here.
Q: Will lessons or private coaching with you guarantee I get the part?
A: If you are taking lessons from me, or coaching sessions, I can only guarantee that you will improve your skill and technique (as long as you put in the hard work and practice). Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee that you will get a part. My goal is to give my students the confidence and skill-set they need to do the best they can do in performances, auditions, or competitions. If you are willing to focus on giving it your all and having fun, hopefully "getting the part", will take second stage to feeling proud of yourself with how far you've come, whatever the result may be.
