Our position as music studio owners, theatre people, musicians and music educators has always been “don’t make it about the money.” We’re here to help you realize your dream and “living the dream” often means waiting tables, tutoring/teaching/assisting, construction gigs, etc. between auditions. If you’re a parent, you want to keep your child’s daily and weekly experience as close to “normal” as possible – which involves social interaction and continual learning with friends, schoolmates and teachers.
Thus, we are not shutting down the studio to wait out the virus. Until at least April 19, everything we do is going to be online via FaceTime or WhatsApp. If you have a laptop with a camera, great, let’s use it and get to work.
Speaking of which, what if you’re not working right now?
Easy. Pay what you can. It is a long-standing theatre tradition that recognizes the need for art and joy over class, social status or checking account. Don’t make it about the money – we’re not.
In the meantime, let’s at least get some weekly vocal warm-ups in, shall we?
Between 10a and 12n daily M-F, I will be offering NO COST weekly vocal warm-ups via FaceTime/WhatsApp to as many friends as I can. Just text or email me to schedule. All you have to do is make sure you are looking into a mirror at home.
See you soon!
