I would love to share with you the benefits of being a voice teacher and performer combined. This course will cover my teaching studio policies, successes, failures and all the aspects of what has made my teaching studio successful.
We will also cover how to become a session singer, what type of demo you need, how to choose your repertoire, how to get your foot in the door and what is required to be one of the first call musicians in your area.
Then we'll put it all together and show how I navigated doing both successfully and provide you with a structure so that you may also not only teach what you know but be able to enjoy singing as a working musician.
