Due to COVID-19, from 19/03/20 all one to one sessions and courses will now take place online, usually via Zoom. This will be in place for the foreseeable future. I have over 10 years experience of online teaching, usually when singers require lessons and are away on contract. I find online teaching a very effective way of working for singers and teachers. The Zoom link for your session/course is automatically sent to you in your booking confirmation email.
Your First One to One Session
All my new clients will be offered a consultation session and review. The purpose of this review is to:
- Take your case history
- Assess your current state of vocal health and fitness
- Understand your goals
- Ascertain if a multidisciplinary approach with other specialist practitioners may be necessary (ENT Consultant, Speech Therapist, Physiotherapist, Counselling and/or Psychotherapy, etc.)
- Together we’ll create a personal action plan, this may include the number of sessions you’ll need and the frequency of those sessions to achieve the goals set out in your action plan
- Determine if we’ll will work well together and if I feel I am the right person to teach you, or if another teacher may be more appropriate
This initial consultation session can be scheduled on the booking page. Unfortunately due to my busy; performance, lecturing and teaching schedule, I am unable to provide free phone or email advice. Although please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any medicalal or clinic notes (if relevant and applicable), your performance history, etc. before your consultation session.
24 hours notice is required to reschedule a session or the full fee is payable. All rescheduling is done via email: email@example.com
Please reschedule your session with 24 hours notice if you are feeling unwell.
Funding and Financial Assistance
Historically, clients who require vocal rehabilitation training and would like to attend the Classical Voice Training Ltd. courses will sometimes qualify for financial assistance from specialist charities including; Help Musicians UK, Royal Society of Musicians and other charitable funding bodies. To apply for funding, you will usually be required to contact the funding body directly with a letter of recommendation from a medical professional (Speech Therapist, ENT or GP). You may wish to contact the British Association of Performing Arts Medicine (BAPAM) for further advice from a medical professional.
Fees for one to one sessions and courses are displayed on the booking page of the website at the time of booking.
