Introduction: Greetings! My apologies. I’m rarely on this app. To reach me for services, please text my cell or request a call. ** Ask me about In-Person & Virtual Lessons, Live Music and My Event Space!! My studio is sanitized and distanced, stocked for convenience with disposable masks and hand-soaps. All brand-new clients must pay ahead to reserve time. But you may begin at any time that works for all. We follow the Charleston County School schedule, closed for holidays and breaks, except select Summer weeks. Thanks. ** With a piano and voice background, I teach and perform almost any genre in Charleston, SC! Now offering other instrument lessons too, just ask! I love teaching all ages. My studio houses a Yamaha upright piano, Clavinova and much more! Open for lessons, rehearsal space and event hosting!! Located near downtown, and a close walk from Folly Road’s Windermere plaza, (with Staples, EarthFare, eateries and more). **During Covid: lessons are limited to my studio or virtual.** Outside the home studio, we sing, play piano, other instruments, and DJ events up to 150 people and more, at a high level, with fine equipment to ensure your event is a success! I also have 2 bands, Bliss (wedding) and Inspiration (gospel) groups for hire. **Please keep in mind: my pricing includes the hours of work outside your actual event.** If you need any of these services, please send me, Jo, a direct message or text my cell specifying how I can help you! Hope to hear from you soon! - Ms. Jo, Homeworks Studio 😀🎵👏🏽

I've taken from other instructors who didn't really listen to what I was looking for. They stuck to their lesson plans and got way too deep into theory for me. I wanted a teacher who could quickly identify habits that hinder my singing, show me methods and exercises that would strengthen my voice technique, and offer suggestions to improve my specific song delivery. Jo really listens. Right off the bat we started working on songs that I choose, not ones that I'm not interested in. After only a few lessons, I'm already seeing lots of improvement and a boost in my confidence. She's fun to work with, which makes you look forward to the next lesson.

Details: 65 years or older • No, the student cannot read music • No formal training • R&B • 30 minutes • At the pro’s location

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    •There is a small administrative fee added on to each group of services for copies, etc. A $25 deposit is required for all services; it goes toward your first group of services. It can be paid via Venmo, card, check or cash. My Venmo username is: @Jo-Kokri-Bhatt. Please let me know within 24 hours if you need to reschedule any lesson or event. Otherwise, you will be charged full price. Sickness is the only exception, but I must get ample notice to schedule someone else at that time or productively use it. Thanks! ________ Lessons: pay per 4wks, 8wks or 12-week (semester). Discounts: proportional (more weeks, more discounts), multiple family members, partners, friends, and neighbors. No Saturday or Sunday lessons; I work hard to accommodate you in every other way. **Write me reviews: $10 off each review!!** Summers: 9 lessons required or penalty. General number of yearly lessons: 33. Make-ups for sickness only and 1 trip/etc per full academic year! *Holidays off for all, no make-ups*. Auto-draft payment ability coming. Extra services incur additional fees. ________ •Rehearsal space: pay by session or project. Event space: pay by event or a series of events. _________ • Gigs: pay by the gig(s) itself or a series 🎵. ** No trade or refund option on any services!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Most often, a potential client and I will meet to discuss his or her goals prior to booking packages of lessons and/or live events. (This way, many questions can be answered ahead of time.) If you decide to hire me, you pay in packages.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I studied music and business at the Bachelors of Arts level. And I constantly learn tips online and take master classes and so forth as often as I can afford them.
