I'm just getting started setting up voice lessons with Big Chirp Studio. Based on my experiences so far, I can tell this will be a good fit for me.Apr 23, 2018VerifiedBig Chirp Studio's reply
Thank you for your kind words, Lori. Looking forward to working with you!
Sonia is a wonderful voice teacher! She is patient and encouraging. After each one of my lessons, I feel more confident and inspired. She definitely has the knowledge and experience to take someone's voice to the next level. I know that if I do the work and follow her instruction, I can reach and even surpass my own voice goals. I am looking forward to seeing what I can accomplish in the months and years to come!Jan 1, 2018Big Chirp Studio's reply

Singing Lessons (for adults)
In my lessons at Big Chirp Studio, I have not only extended my vocal range and improved my technique, but I have also become far more confident as a singer! Sonia is very encouraging and professional, and her technical approach gives me something to fall back on when I become nervous. I find it easier to sing with the vocal exercises and stretches she has me do, and she is very good about finding new ways to explain concepts so I understand them better. In just a few months my voice has become dramatically more full and present; she knows what she's talking about, and is an excellent teacher! On top of all that, I have a lot of fun doing what I love - making music!Nov 27, 2017VerifiedBig Chirp Studio's reply
Amanda, thank you so much for your kind review! I am impressed with your excitement and openness to learn new technique, but even more I’m impressed with the incredible work and mindful practice you’ve put into your studies at home. The change in your voice has been absolutely incredible, and it’s very much the result of your work ethic, always-positive attitude, and zest for learning and growing. Your newfound confidence is so wonderful, and I’m so proud to see you grow with both your voice and your presence!
I am so happy to have found Sonia. She was both professional and welcoming and after just my first lesson I already feel like I’m on my way to improving.Nov 2, 2017Verified
My wife had her initial lesson at Big Chirp as a birthday gift. She came home very happy, and excited to keep working on what she had learned! Sonia was a great teacher, and helped my wife feel comfortable during the lesson.Aug 7, 2017VerifiedBig Chirp Studio's reply
Colin, thank you so much for your kind review! I'm so glad I was able to be a part of her birthday celebration, and it was a pleasure to work with her. Looking forward to Kayla's musical future!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $80/hour for adults; $45 for a 30-minute lesson for children.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?For the first lesson, we begin by talking about goals and the things the student would like to accomplish. After listening to their speaking voice, I then take the student through a series of warmups created just for them to assess where the voice is technically, and come up with a plan for how to achieve the goals going forward. Depending on how advanced the singer is, we then talk about how to stand, how to breathe for singing, and what kind of repertoire (songs) to work on to improve their technique for real results.
