What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I find out first what each individual needs, and then we pattern a plan of action based on that.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Because of some vocal compromise in the mid 2000's due to a health issue, I've learned a lot about healthy vocal production and about relaxing the large neck muscles that overdo things.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Yes, It's $75 for a full hour, $50 for a half hour, and if you'd like a series of lessons, we can work out a discount.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
It was not a "decision." I was defined as a singer early on, because I always sang.
What types of customers have you worked with?
all types. I've worked with youngsters, but I prefer to work with post-pubescent voices on up in age to geriatric. Amateur, professionals, student, speakers, people who are doing it just for fun, or who want to get in touch with their soul a little more, especially songwriters who think "they're not singers."
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
You've always wanted to sing. Or sing better.You'll want someone-- with the experience I have-- who can help you tap into YOUR unique voice, and guide you in performance technique, gig etiquette, business strategies, and vocal health.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
A singer must also be a musician and technician, and needs to know the basic language of music to connect with and communicate with fellow musicians.
