Consults

Initial Consult Lessons are by appointment.

All prospective students under age 18 who are seeking a regular spot in the studio must attend an Initial Consult Lesson prior to enrolment.

This consultation is for students wishing to enrol for the year and who are aiming to have a lesson at the same time on a weekly basis during the school term.
It is a chance for student and parent to meet me and for me to assess the child’s/student’s readiness and discuss what is involved. After this lesson, a place may be made available. If there are no vacancies for a scheduled time, then you may be placed on a waiting list and contacted when one becomes available. During this lesson, I will advise if there is preparatory work needed prior to commencing private vocal tuition and guide you to the appropriate course or practitioner. Occasionally I will advise a visit to an ENT specialist if I suspect any vocal problems prior to commencing. Speech pathology may also be an option if other issues in speech are evident.

Once an appointment for a consult is confirmed you will be sent an email with information about how to prepare for it.

1 Consultation: 45 minutes – $85 Payable on or before the day
1 hr. – $110 Payable on or before the day

* The length of the consult will be discussed prior to the consult as it is based on the age and experience of the student. I will advise the required length.
