- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
•True Muse Music & Performing Arts offers a 10% discount to students who pay for a month in advance. •All fees listed are before the discount and assume the student is enrolled in weekly lessons that meet at the same time each week. •Lessons should be paid on the last lesson of the month for the upcoming month of lessons, unless other arrangements are made in advance. Make-up lessons can be scheduled in advance for lessons occurring on national holidays.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
At our first lesson, we discuss the student's goals, interests, and past experience. We then work on material to assess the student's abilities, technique, and understanding of the overall material. We make recommendations for study materials and talk about practice expectations and process. For piano students, it is imperative that the student has an instrument on which to practice regularly. Voice students (singing, voice over and public speaking) should have some way of recording lessons & rehearsals, and a computer or other device for playback of recordings.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I started in theatre as a child, and did my professional apprenticeship at a LORT theatre when I was 13 years old. I studied violin for 7 years, ballet for 15 years, jazz and modern for 8+ years. I studied acting privately & in class with various teachers, including William Hickey at HB Studios in NYC. I've studied voice in classes, and workshops with notable organizations like the Greg Smith Singers, and privately in NYC and in Chicago with Carol Loverde, Typhanie Monique. I received my BA in Interdisciplinary Studies from Columbia College Chicago - where I studied contemporary dance, acting, 20th century music performance and moving image. I received my Actors Equity card in 1985 after touring internationally, and working for the season at a LORT theatre in upstate NY.
