Lessons cancelled by students are made up at the discretion of the instructor, but in most cases, the missed lessons will be forfeited. I require 48 hours notice if the student is unable to attend a lesson. If I am unable to teach a lesson for any reason, we will reschedule and make up the lesson free of additional charges. This policy is strictly enforced. Please take a moment to read this article about makeup lessons and cancellations - it may give you a different perspective!
As a reminder to our work in our lessons, your warm-up
should include the following types of exercises done in
proper singing posture:
*Stretching arms, neck, back
*Explore different breath pressures
*Dog Pant - Nasal
*Please continue to practice the exercises we do in your own private lesson! I have made a few sample warm-ups below for Kids and Adults that you can use if you do not have access to a piano or are unable to play.
If you have not done a certain exercise, feel free to try it out and let me know that you have practiced it!
