Private Voice Lessons for Females, Grades 6-12
Kerith currently has the following openings in her voice lesson schedule:
Mondays, 5:40-6:40
 
As long as my students aren’t allergic to cats, I hold lessons at my place. (If allergic, please let me know, and we can work something out.)  I typically do a 60-minute session for $50 once a week, and accept payment at the time of the lesson or in advance.  If a family would like to pay in advance for a 4-lesson bundle, I can offer a discounted rate of $45 per lesson. I allow one cancellation or rescheduling every 3 months.  If a family needs to reschedule lessons to a different time or day of the week, I require at least 48 hours notice.  I’m pretty flexible, so if a family’s schedule changes, I can almost always accommodate them.  If my schedule changes and we aren’t able to find a time to meet that week, any pre-paid money will roll over to future lessons.  Because I have a broad background in singing and was classically trained, we can work on whatever style of music my students would like, as well as general vocal technique & safety, increasing vocal range, ear training, goal-setting, performance aspects, song-writing, and even recording in our professional-grade studio. We’ll work hard, but it’ll be a lot of fun, too!
