Private Voice Lessons for Females, Grades 6-12
Kerith currently has the following openings in her voice lesson schedule:
Tuesdays, 4:05-5:05
Thursdays, 5:15-6:15 
 
 

I offer lessons for girls in 6th -12th grade.  I hold lessons at my place, and I do have cats, so this only works if my students are not allergic.  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 “skip” every 3 months, either a cancellation or a planned miss.  If a family needs to cancel a lesson or try to reschedule to a different time or day of the week, I require at least 48 hours notice.  If myschedule 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 with our professional-grade vocal microphone. We’ll work hard, but it’ll be a lot of fun, too!

 

I am taking lots of precautions, covid-wise.  Students wash their hands upon entering my apartment, and they have their own area in my office.  We are at least 6 feet apart almost the entire time.  For especially “breathy” warm-up exercises, we face away from each other, and unless it’s really hot outside, I open a window.  I sanitize the student's area before lessons, and hand sanitizer is available to use whenever they feel they need it.
