I charge $100/hr for recording sessions and that will be prorated for however long we go. For people who can't quite budget this in but really want to work with me, I am open to negotiation, it's just that this is how I keep the studio running. I am hear for the community of artists around here and want to make it work so please don't let money get in the way of reaching out to me. If you want me to edit, process, and mix your vocals with the instrumental, the rate is around $50/hr depending on the complexity of the song. We can give you a professional industry standard Master for $50 per track as well. I will give you estimates before working on your songs so you know what to expect. Please reach out for any other pricing questions! VOICE STUDIO POLICY* Prices are $80 per each individual hour lesson, or $70 per if you pay monthly ($280 for 4). Students paying monthly will be responsible for setting up make-ups for lessons that they cancel with 48 hours notice, and after the first payment, will pay monthly via automated emailed invoice. Students have one month to make up each missed lesson. No need to make up for major holiday weeks, unless desired. Lessons canceled under 48 hours will be charged. If I have to cancel, the student has the option to reschedule their lesson or have a credit applied to a lesson in the following month. No refunds.
First I like to talk through what it is you'd like from me and your vision for the music. Once I have a grasp of what you are looking for from your description and references if possible, I like to just set the vibe and help you feel in your element. We have lot's of options when it comes to the microphone sound, the monitoring in your headphones, to all of the lighting choices I have (I do not take lighting lightly). I think you'll find me easy-going and joyful in the studio, but serious about the quality of the work we do together. As a voice teacher and artist/vocalist myself, I am experienced with helping people shake their nerves, as I've had to deal with it first hand myself countless times as a vocalist. In the session, I'm all about feeling good and having a clear mind to get in the zone. We'll do as many takes as needed to get the main center vocal part right, and then depending on the song, we may go on to do doubles, harmonies, backups and so on to fill out the song to perfection. If any of that is new, allow me to be a guide in the process. There is always something new to learn here. Once the raw vocals are all down we can talk more about what you want stylistically when it comes to processing and effects if you choose to hire me for the rest of the process, which I love to be a part of. We'll have a fun and focused time; exploring our creativity and making something beautiful :)
I have had at least a dozen mentors of music from instrumentalists and vocalists to producers and mixing engineers. I have taken countless online and in person courses. I have gone through phases of taking the self taught route and the apprentice path which both work well for me.
