Weekly lessons this year will follow a hybrid model, alternating online lessons with in-person lessons.
Online lessons will use Zoom software, with the option to also use Cleanfeed audio.
In-person lessons will happen in person at Resound Voice Studio, 30 Glen Park Crescent, Kitchener N2N 1G2.
In-person lessons will involve both instructor and singer wearing a “singer’s mask” (designed to keep the fabric away from the face); temperature checks; HEPA filter/air purifier; hand sanitizer; and distancing as much as possible. Singers will be scheduled to with online appointments to allow for air exchange between singers. If at any time a singer is under the weather or experiencing suspect symptoms, or has been exposed to someone who may have COVID-19, we will switch to online for that lesson.
I reserve the right to transition to online lessons only at any time, based on public health guidelines and local COVID-19 case numbers. Singers are asked to take extreme caution when making decisions to come in person: particularly due to the fact that the disease causes lung damage, which can be especially harmful to singers; and due to the fact that I have a child at home who is too young to be vaccinated (and a few students that young, too).
Lessons run mid-September to mid-June. Payment is by term in Sept. & Feb. or divided equally between ten months, September to June.
Tuition includes a singer’s mask, songbook, theory workbook, (most) sheet music, twice-monthly online group classes (one studio performance class and one musicianship skills development class), and local (Waterloo region) or online performance opportunities.
The only additional costs associated will be guest masterclasses with the studio; or external opportunities such as Royal Conservatory Examinations, music festivals or competitions.
