Voice Class with Di Solomon
~singing lessons for everyone~
An information sheet for new students and parents.
Private Voice Class with me basically consists of two equally important elements: exercises and songs. Students are expected to give both these their full attention, and practice AT LEAST three times a week, on songs AND exercises, but much better daily. For the first few weeks, I concentrate mainly on exercises and theory, as this can help establish a solid basis for good technique. Posture, breathing and some strange sounding vocal exercises are the starting point.
Each student will
need to purchase a CD that has 38 tracks of demonstrations, exercises and
information. I make this CD available at a very reasonable price of $10 my students,
and you can use it long after you have finished lessons with me as a warm-up and
At Port Hacking High, my room is 321, next to the PE staffroom. I tutor on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. We'll choose a time that suits, and that will usually be your time every week, but as with all things, changes can happen. You can always contact me by email, facebook, phone or text if you're unsure, or need to change.
At the end of terms two and term four we have The Singersí Night show on stage, (usually at Gymea Bowling Club) to which of course parents and friends are most cordially invited. Itís a chance for you to show off all your new skills so your family and friends to see how youíve developed. Itís also a great opportunity for you to take a song from rehearsal to performance in front of an appreciative audience. There is much to be learned from this process. Parents love to see what all that time, effort and money is going into.
In term three we go to a recording studio and make our 'Class of 2018' CD. Very good fun, and a wonderful keepsake for students and families.
We also record in class
often. Every time a song is taken from 'chosen' to 'worked on' to 'nailed' we
then record for you to keep forever- like a little time capsule of your singing
Feel free to
contact me by email or phone any time with any questions you may have. I am
always happy to speak to parents about the progress of students (or whatever!).
