Students should be at least 8 years old and older.
Lessons TBA will be held at Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church, in the Music Studio of the church Community Center, 600 LAKEVIEW ST., PINEVILLE, LA., or in my home on the Baldwin Grand 1951.
Lessons on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons will be held at the Calvary Conservatory, 5011 Jackson St., Alexandria, LA.
Additional days and times may be scheduled for lessons at Sacred Heart or in my home.

It is illegal for me to give a student music that is photocopied, unless it is in the public domain.
Some websites such as musicnotes.com have excellent resources for learning vocal music. Voice students may be required to register for that site.
All lessons are recorded and posted in your private file on DropBox which you will be able to access. You are requested to listen to that lesson and read your lesson notes before the next scheduled lesson.
IV. Accompaniments for singers: Students (or the responsible adult) are responsible for downloading and paying for accompaniments recommended by the teacher. There are several online websites to which you will be referred. You will be required to download or have online access. As long as you have bluetooth we can connect you to the Bose speaker.
V. Make-Up lessons: There are no make-up lessons at any location. There are no refunds for missed lessons. If you do miss a lesson, I am paid for my time.
If I miss a lesson you will either receive a make-up lesson or a refund for that lesson.
