Frequently Asked Questions
1. Where are you located?
Currently lessons are taking place online via Zoom! In-person lessons take place at my studio in French Hill, Jerusalem, located near the Givat HaMivtar train stop and bus lines.
2. What are the length and frequency of music lessons?
Students should have weekly lessons to maintain a regular learning and practice schedule. Lessons can range from 30-60 minutes, depending on the age and level of the student.
3. What are your qualifications?
I have a Bachelor of Music (Vocal Performance) Degree and 10 years of teaching experience. I studied both vocal and violin pedagogy at the university level. As a lifelong violinist, I have a strong background in classical music, music theory, and sight-reading. I'm an experienced Opera and Musical Theater performer, and I am able to help students with diction, lyric interpretation and acting for singing. My broad performance experience includes Musical Theater, Pop, Jazz, Opera, Choral Music, Symphony, and Modern Dance, all which enhance my educational approach.
3. What are your lesson rates?
Tuition is paid monthly and is the same amount each month calculated based on the total number of the lessons in the year.
1-hour private lesson: 550 NIS/month
30-minute private lesson: 300 NIS/month
1-hour group lesson: 280 NIS/month
4. What materials are needed to start lessons?
Thankfully singers don't have a lot of equipment to worry about! Voice students should come to lessons prepared with a notebook, pencil, and water. A recording device is also recommended to record lessons if desired. It may also be necessary to occasionally purchase method and/or sheet music books.
5. Aren't I too old to start taking music lessons?
A big resounding "no!" You can learn to sing, dance, or play an instrument at any age. Really. Studies even show that making music helps prevent illnesses like Alzheimer's. It's never too late to invest in your physical and emotional well-being, and practicing an art is a fantastic way to do that.
