Singing and Covid Info.

The following resources are what we know currently. As more research becomes available, I will continue to update and share what I come across in this field.

 

Since singing indoors (without proper ventilation) is a higher risk of transmission, I will be continuing online lessons until it becomes safer.

Singing and music are invaluable during this time, and we should be able to do it with safety in mind.

Online LESSONS:

Online lessons really do work! Here are some things to consider and expect:

Preparation:

1. Have a zoom account on either your computer or iPad.

2. Have your phone available for karaoke tracks.

3. Be sure your internet connection is ready and stable. (There always might be interference, but for the most part, the audio and visuals work well.)

4. Be sure there is not too many distractions going on in the room you'll be singing in.

5. Be sure you're not backlit (light behind you darkening your face.)

6. Try and get your camera eye level, so that I'm not looking "up" at you from below.

During the lesson expectations:

1. You will attend online at your scheduled lesson time.

2. We will work on audio setup at the first lesson.

3. Yes, there is a delay in sound. We will not be singing at the exact same time.

4. We will engage in a lot of "call and response" activities.

5. You will gain more independence of your vocal part.

6. You will use a karaoke track on your side to accompany yourself in your songs!

7. Or, I will send you a piano accompaniment straight to your phone in the form of a texted voice memo.

Afterwards:

1. You will get a recording of your lesson after its complete!

2. You will also receive lesson notes from me in an email.

3. You will have just had a voice lesson and your heart will feel a little bit lighter!
