FREQUENTLY ASKED

Q: When are you available for lessons?

A: Private sessions can be booked Tuesday-Saturday. Both daytime and evening appointments are available.

Q: Where is your studio located?

A: I teach in Toronto, Bradford, and Aurora. I also am available to teach via Skype for long distance pupils.

Q: What are your lessons like?

A: Lessons are one hour. They begin with a body warm up, a voice warm up and a stylized technical session working towards specific individual goals. At every lesson students will perform repertoire and apply their technique to songs.

Q: What style of singing do you teach?

A: This is defined by the students needs. Some students have great basic technique, a great voice, but need help with performance nerves. Others are starting from scratch, have never had a lesson and would like to know how they can improve their voice. Some students need help changing their sound from a “classical” sounding voice to a modern sound. Some students haven’t found their mid voice, others don’t know what a head voice is and some are having difficulty with a mid voice belt. Others just don’t understand why their voice breaks or cuts out, or hurts, or has no power. These are all issues I deal with, one on one, in the studio. Good singing technique can be applied to all styles of music, including musical theatre, classical, and pop.

Q: What acting methods do you teach?

A: Private students will be introduced to various schools of acting methods from Stanislavsky, through Meisner and Uta Hagen. Scene study and character development will also be explored.

Q: Do you teach group lessons?

A: I run master classes throughout the year but the private studio is a one on one environment.

Q: How often should I come for lessons?

A: Lessons should be on a regular basis (weekly or biweekly). Weekly is always best for continual improvement. The best results come from weekly one hour lessons combined with regular practice.

Q: Who do you teach?

A: I teach all singers, all ages and all levels of experience. I teach musical theatre performers preparing for auditions. I teach university students preparing for auditions for the various performance programs around the world. I teach professionals who are performing in professional opera, musical theatre, or as recording artists. I teach high school students. I teach adults who are choosing voice as a passionate hobby. I teach singer/songwriters. I teach beginner singers with big dreams. I teach other voice teachers. I teach people who are passionate about singing, and those just wanting to see if they really do have a singing voice.
