Singing is for everyone.
Let's make it work!
Money should never get in the way of exploring your dreams and passions. And, as a singing community, those who have more resources can help pay-it-forward to support their fellow singers!
Pay-it-forward price : $120
Consider paying at this level if one or more of the following apply: You are comfortably able to meet your basic needs such as food, housing, healthcare, and childcare, own a newer car, own your home or rent a higher end property, have access to financial savings, have reliable work or do not need to work to meet your needs, have investments, can afford to travel every year, have expendable income.
This is the true cost of lessons. In order to cover my expenses and pay myself a living wage, I need most people to choose this tier or above. Consider paying at this level if one or more of the following apply: you sometimes stress about meeting basic needs (food, housing, healthcare, childcare, etc) but still regularly achieve them, are able to buy some new items and thrift others, can travel every couple/few years without burden, have some debt but it does not prevent access to basic needs/wants.
Consider paying at this level if one or more of the following apply: you have very limited expendable income, are unemployed or have unstable employment but are still able to meet basic needs such as food, housing, healthcare, and childcare, have little or no access to savings or financial support from family, have higher debt that requires some sacrifices on needs/wants.
Pay-What-You-Can: $20 - $60
I reserve two pay-what-you-can sessions on my calendar per month. Please consider this option only if you struggle to meet your basic needs such as food, housing, healthcare, and childcare and paying would be a significant hardship. Priority for these sessions goes to folks who identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color, trans women and trans femmes, folks raised working class or poor, and people with disabilities.
I am grateful to Eli Conley, musician and voice teacher, for inspiring my approach to sliding scale!
