Payments ROsborneAdmin 2017-08-04T17:06:29-07:00
- You may pay in cash for 4 lessons at a time.
- You may ask for a receipt.
Music purchases ROsborneAdmin 2017-08-04T17:05:43-07:00
- Music costs or scripts are above and beyond the fee for lessons.
- If you are a music student, you will need to purchase your music and sight-singing materials on-line or from stores in the area.
- Special note: I may wait a few lessons before recommending music to a new student until I am sure of the vocal range and needs of that student.
Missed and Make-up lessons ROsborneAdmin 2017-08-04T17:05:01-07:00
- If a student is ill, I need to be notified as soon as possible, so that a lesson change can be made.
- If a student has a general conflict, I need to know at least 24 hours in advance so a lesson change can be made.
- Failure to notify me prior to the lesson missed after the first time, will result in a charged lesson, except in the case of an emergency.
- All lessons missed to due to scheduling conflicts or illness may be made up at a mutually agreeable time within 2 weeks.
Visitors ROsborneAdmin 2017-08-04T17:03:50-07:00
Often parents wish to observe lessons.
- This is fine as long as the student is comfortable with this arrangement.
- Remember, each student needs to feel relaxed and focused in lessons.
Often family members or friends wish to sit and wait during lessons.
- This is fine as long as the student is comfortable with this arrangement and the visitors are quiet.
Practice expectations ROsborneAdmin 2017-08-04T17:00:31-07:00
I expect all students to:
- listen to your recording of each lesson.
- follow-up on all assignments.
- notice, without judgment, the sounds of the voice and feelings of the body when practicing.
- ask questions and speak concerns.
- be willing to explore new sensations and ideas.
- trust the process of learning to help you achieve your goals.
Benefits of vocal study ROsborneAdmin 2017-08-04T17:01:37-07:00
Studying voice helps you to:
- understand, feel, hear, and change habits that interfere with efficient phonation, free and rich resonance, and expanded vocal range.
- gain an understanding of YOUR voice and what it can and cannot do.
- gain a dependable and expressive personal voice that will do as you wish.
- become more confident and consistent with your skills.
- apply new vocal technique to new settings and opportunities.
- experience the joy of music making, or acting, or speaking for yourself and others.
- trust and respect your body/mind, and be optimistic about your future potential.
