WHAT IS MY FIRST LESSON LIKE?
We’ll talk a little about you. What your experience is (if any) and why you’re looking for lessons. We’ll go through some exercises which will help us to assess your voice and how we will be best approaching our sessions. We want you to feel comfortable and relaxed. Your voice is a very personal thing, so it’s important we are both happy to move forward as a team.
SHOULD I PREPARE A SONG?
Yes, please. Ideally it should be something you feel very comfortable with and have sung for a good amount of time. The purpose of this is to get a clearer understanding of your voice.
SHOULD I BRING SHEET MUSIC?
If you have a song to sing, yes, if not this will be something we will come to further along the line.
DO I NEED TO READ MUSIC?
Nope! Depending on your goals, this can be something we work on together in lessons. Otherwise, we can learn by listening
CAN I BRING MY OWN BACKING-TRACK?
Yes, especially if it’s a good one!
CAN I RECORD MY LESSON?
100% !! This is something we advise all our students. It’s difficult to remember everything in the moment as there can often be a lot to take in. Also, when you listen back, you may hear something we've said or something in your own voice you had not realised at the time.
DO YOU OFFER DISCOUNTS?
No, lessons are on a appointment by appointment basis
HOW MANY LESSONS WILL I NEED?
Voice training is a practice. Even the most renowned singers still see a vocal coach regularly and are always learning to keep their instrument in top form! Vocal training is a life long adventure, if you want it to be.
HOW MUCH DO I NEED TO PRACTICE?
Keeping in check with your voice is integral to improvement, just like doing regular exercise is the only way to stay fit. If you want to get better, you have to practice regularly.
IS THERE PARKING?
Yes, there is free street parking.
CAN I GET TO YOU WITHOUT A CAR?
There are regular bus services to the village. Take a look at google and key in the address, it'll soon show you the way!
