Q & A
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?$60 for one hour lessons: Most popular and best deal with sufficient time for you. $49 for 1 hour Skype lessons: deborah.frank1 $45 for 45 min lessons: good mid range. $35 for half hour lessons: for busy people & starving artists. Group rates & some sliding scale available. Just ask! Our DyaTribal band rates vary based on event & addition of tribal dancers. Call with invitations to play!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I ask if you have any questions, make you laugh a bit, introduce myself, make you feel comfortable. We do a quick tour of the studio. I show you some vocal warm ups if it's a voice lesson. Then I give you a copy of the warm ups for you to practice to save you time & money. Then we sing together so you feel supported! I check your range so you know which notes are comfortable for you to sing so that we can choose some songs for next time that you love!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Yes! My best teachers taught me to be a life long learner. Every summer I attend two weeks of Brazilian Music Camp and study with master drummers, dancers, vocalists & musicians. Had the great pleasure of studying songwriting with Michael Pattison & other faculty at Berklee College of Music. Have been a longtime member of West Coast Songwriters. I attend weekly percussion & dance classes in West African, Middle Eastern, Brazilian, & Latino performance communities. Our band, DyaTribal rehearses & performs weekly. I write songs regularly & read journals on entrepreneurship in the music & teaching fields.
