Book an (Online) Evaluation Lesson
I’m looking forward to meeting you and hearing you sing! Please read this page carefully so we can have a great first lesson together.
To book a lesson you need to complete my booking form, and select your lesson time and date.
Note that due to the current pandemic, all lessons are online until it’s safe to sing together again!
How online lessons work
I use the web application Zoom for all online lessons. When you book your lesson, the confirmation email will have a link to your Zoom lesson. You can connect to Zoom either via a browser on your computer, or via the Zoom app on your phone or tablet.
If you aren’t sure about how to set this up I will provide support to get you ready to go!
What to Expect
In your first lesson, we will start by getting to know each other. It’s a two-way audition!
- You can tell me about what made you want singing lessons, what you hope to learn, what you like to sing.
- I will tell you about my teaching style, and what lessons look like.
- Then we will do some warm ups, and I’ll take you through some exercises so I can get to know your voice.
- You’ll sing the song you prepared for me.
Then I’ll give you feedback about what I think we could work on together. You can ask all your questions!
Prepare Your Space
Choose a room for your lesson that is quiet where you will be undisturbed.
Set up your device so that you can stand comfortably without looking up or down at the screen. You can prop it up on a bookshelf, kitchen bar, or mantlepiece, for example.
Prepare a Song
Please prepare a song to sing for me, so that I can get to know your voice and your level. It can be anything you love to sing! If you can sing it by heart, that would be great, but if you need the words, that’s ok too. Please plan to sing unaccompanied, or with a backing track.
And don’t worry, it’s normal to be a bit nervous!
Bookings & Payment
To book a lesson you need to:
- Read this agreement and complete the form
- Choose a lesson time in my calendar on 10to8
- Receive confirmation and my bank details from me
- Confirm your booking by sending me proof of payment
When Can I Book A Lesson?
I teach Tuesday-Friday, with lesson times available from 9 am to 8pm CET.
My students have regular lesson times, so I generally have similar lesson times available. Try to choose a time for your evaluation lesson that you could do regularly if you choose to become a member of my studio!
How Much Does it Cost?
- Evaluation lessons require more preparation and admin than a regular lesson, and also include my non-refundable registration fee. The costs are:
Children and Teens: 45 mins – 75€
Adults: 60 mins – 90€
- You will need to pay for your lesson in advance to confirm your booking.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Currently I can only accept payment via online bank transfer. If you are outside of France, I recommend using Transferwise.
Payment by online bank transfer should be made before the lesson – please send me a screenshot to confirm you’ve made the payment! I will send you my bank account with your booking confirmation
Refunds for cancellations made more than 48 hours before you lesson will be provided on a case-by-case basis.
Cancellations less than 48 hours before your lesson will not be refunded. Missed lessons will also not be refunded.
I do not charge for rescheduling, but if you need to reschedule I do appreciate 48 hours notice!
What happens after my first lesson?
If we both decide to go ahead with lessons together, I will send you my studio learning agreement to read and complete. You won’t need to pay my registration fee, as it was included in your evaluation lesson fee.
We will choose a permanent lesson time that suits both of us.
We can start weekly lessons as soon as possible!
Ready to sing?
If you’re all set to join me for an evaluation lesson, please complete this form and book in your lesson time! You’re nearly done 🙂
P.S. If you can’t see a time that suits, just send me an email and we can see if we can find something that works!
