What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Prices vary depending on how many band members are hired for the gig, how much equipment is needed, and how far away the event will be.
For voice students, it is generally $45 per hour - in certain circumstances I can come to you for a higher price. I also offer low cost small group sessions for $20 per person (usually 3-5 people).
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I continue taking voice lessons and classical indian vocal training, I take brazilian mandolin lessons, afro-pop guitar study, and I work with a songwriting group for creative support.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I found a guitar when I was 12 and haven't stopped playing since then. I was always very moved by music growing up and I wanted to create that experience for other people.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Live performance, usually weddings and party events, voice coaching, and group music classes for children.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I am currently working with a student who is thriving from the voice lessons I am offering her. They are providing a great sense of self esteem, and getting past fears and insecurities tied to the voice. Voice work is a powerful way to unblock your authentic voice.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Be fair in your pricing, plan with adequate advance notice, and make sure your location can accommodate electrical needs.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
That I deeply believe that singing is a natural as speaking, it is incredibly healthy, meditative and uplifting and I believe that EVERYONE is capable of singing beautifully.
