- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Prices change based on my travel time! Ask for the rate for your zip code. Discounts: -Referrals are the highest compliment! Receive a free session of your desired length/ number of participants when a referral purchases a session or package with me. -Ask for an introductory rate for our first meeting to see if we're a good fit!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
It all starts with a conversation! I'll have plenty of questions for you about your inspirations, goals, experience and history, and interests. For voice students, our fist few sessions lean a little more toward vocalizing and exploring the foundations of vocal technique: breath, posture, and resonance. After I have introduced those basic ideas, then we start to work those principles into the repertoire that calls to you. For piano students, I meet you where you're at! We'll find appropriate material that will challenge you, and I'll help you establish efficient and fun practice methods.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have been studying music for my whole life, and I have been incredibly lucky to have had the best teachers in the world. I have been singing in choirs since I was 9; I studied piano from the 7th grade through the end of my Bachelor's degree; and I have a degree in Vocal Performance (Bachelor of Music) from Indiana University, a school well known for its voice program. However, none of that would be relevant if not for my 10 years of experience as a camp counselor or my 6 years of teaching at a small private school in Santa Cruz. Through those experiences, I've developed a capacity to work with kids of any age/skill level; as well a dedication to helping my adult students not take themselves so seriously and just have a good time!
