Thanks, Sarah! So happy you had a great experience!
Cosima is experienced and understanding! I'm so excited to learn more and better my vocal instrument!Feb 11, 2018VerifiedThe Voice Box Music Lessons's reply
Thank you Jordyn! I'm expecting great things to come!
I was a bit nervous at first about getting a vocal coach but Cosima made me feel comfortable right away. She does an amazing job in teaching and if I have any question she answers them right away. There’s no pressure or judgement by her part, if anything I feel encouraged to get out of my comfort zone each time and I’m looking forward to the classes I have yet to take with her. I definitely recommend Cosima!Feb 2, 2018VerifiedThe Voice Box Music Lessons's reply

Thank you, Tonja, for the nice review! Great to have you in the studio!!
Cosima is a very personable and knowledgeable vocal coach. Her demeanor is comforting yet encouraging when working through those "rough notes". In the short time we have been taking lessons from her, she has given my son much needed confidence to navigate his changing voice. We are very happy to have found Cosima!Jan 20, 2015VerifiedThe Voice Box Music Lessons's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I teach voice, guitar, mandolin and ukulele. Rates begin at $35 for 30 min, $45 for 45 min and $55 for 1 hour. Students can choose a "Pay as you go" system or enter into a monthly contract. Monthly contract prices are for 4 lessons a month. That means that if a month has 5 weeks the student gets a FREE LESSON that month. Most of my clients choose to enter into the monthly contract. Keep an eye out for special discounts and promotionals throughout the year! I include teaching at conferences, clinics and workshops that can be customized per event/venue. Cancelations and rescheduling may occur so I keep that in mind and use a grace system. I want my clients to come back so I'm gracious about rescheduling and fees. I also offer instrument rentals at an additional cost.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I'm always learning. I study singing technique and music theory on an ongoing basis and research the best ways to help each of my students individually, based on what they want to learn and where they are in their musical journey. I am very excited to have certificates in Science of Singing, Music Theory and Ear Training, Songwriting, and Music Production, focusing on a Specialization Certificate in Modern Musicianship at the Berkeley College of Music. I've been studying music and singing for more than 20 years with an emphasis on proper vocal technique that insures the singer, whether young or old, a healthy voice throughout their vocal future.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I was one of those singers that fit into the "can" category. I grew up singing, performing and teaching others to sing harmony before I graduated elementary school. In High School I was an open air musician during the summer at Knotts Berry Farm and as an adult I was performing every week, singing backup vocals for events in the USA and abroad but, I was having trouble with my voice and needed help. When I discovered a technique that saved my voice and improved my singing abilities others began to ask me to help them with their voice too and over time teaching others just naturally developed. When it became evident that my ability to teach others was in demand I acquired certification and started my home studio business.
