"You have to be willing to stop and fix.

Deep practice requires a willingness to do what many of us find uncomfortable:

to admit to our errors, and focus on them."

 

Daniel Coyle

"WHen the good student chooses the honest path, free of perfectionism and faking,

music study becomes something refreshingly new: a calm oasis of self-acceptance for

those who are so used to driving themselves and trying to please others."

FAQS and INFO

Rehearsals

How many rehearsals should I schedule?​

  • Two rehearsals are included in my fee for new solos. Additional rehearsals can be scheduled at the rate of $25 per 30-minutes. (same solo state fee includes one rehearsal)

 

When should I schedule them?

  • I recommend scheduling the 1st rehearsal 3 - 4 weeks before the event and the final rehearsal 1 - 2 weeks before.

  • The sooner you can get them on my calendar, the better! If you don't see a day or time that works for you, text or email me and we'll figure something out.

Where are rehearsals held?

  • At my house in Commerce Twp unless other arrangements are made. (Address provided upon scheduling.)

 

 

Music

When should I get my music to you?

  • As soon as possible! This will give me plenty of time to prepare the piece before our first rehearsal.

 

How can I get my music to you?

Payment

When is my payment due?

  • At the second rehearsal. 

How do I pay?

  • I accept cash, check, Venmo or Zelle.

I'm nervous!!

Performing in front of other people is often scary - especially when you're doing it for the first time! My goal is for you to feel as confident and comfortable as possible by the day of the event. There are helpful techniques you can use to help yourself mentally prepare and enjoy the performance. 

If you feel it would be helpful, a 15-minute Performance Anxiety session can be added to your regular rehearsal for $20. We'll go over breathing techniques, visualizations, movements, and writing exercises that you can begin using right away and develop a checklist for the day of the event.
