One of the questions which pops up regularly on Choral Holidays is “Would it be possible to have private singing lessons with you?” Obviously, with our clients spread throughout the country or, in some cases, throughout the world, this can be tricky. But with the benefits of modern technology, this may well be a possibility, so we are now going to set this up for our clients.
Once upon a time, remote singing lessons would have been a ridiculous idea, but now, with super fast internet connections and fantastic sound quality on computers, it is possible to arrange to give people lessons over Skype. This saves a great deal of time in travel for busy students for whom the journey to and from a lesson may well take up more time and cost more than the lesson itself.
The other advantage of this is that we can arrange lessons at times which may well be outside of what we normally consider business hours.
Obviously, if you would rather be in the same room as your teacher, we can arrange this too.
The Artistic Director of Choral Holidays, Jeff Stewart is a professional operatic tenor who has sung major operatic roles and concerts throughout the world. He is a professor of voice at the Royal College of Music in London and at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.
The standard rate for an hour long singing lesson with Jeff is £50 per hour. If someone wishes to book a course of 10 lessons then the price would be £450.
The focus of the lessons is on freeing ourselves from the worries and misconceptions which inhibit our singing and, more importantly, our enjoyment of singing, and allowing ourselves, through good practices and simplicity, to enjoy singing simply as a form of self expression.
