FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How often should I take a voice lesson?‍

I have bi-weekly or monthly subscription training options. There is a minimum 3-month commitment for each program. How often you need a lesson will vary on your experience level, and your goals. On average, untrained singers will do best with once every two weeks for at least 3+ months. Once a student has had a good amount of training and experience, intermediate or advanced students can maybe taper off to once a month.

Will there be homework between lessons?

Each time you have a 1:1 training session, you will receive a recording of your lesson program and you are encouraged to practice that 3 x per week during the course of your training. For best results, it’s good to stay consistent with regular practice. 

What does a typical lesson look like?

Vocal Assessment: We will start by assessing your voice.  I will ask you a few questions to get an idea of what you are looking to achieve vocally and assess your voice by having you sing a scale. Then we can decide which direction to take for training.

Vocal Warm-Up + Development:  We will first warm-up your voice. Then we’ll proceed to tools that are designed to help with developing your vocal technique. You will get assigned customized development tools that are best suited for your voice and will help with your goals. 

Application:  Then we will focus on songs by applying technical tools to challenging song phrases and additional performance coaching

What are your rates?

My course Mix Evolution is $399 CAD.  This an excellent way to get started and I highly recommend enrolling and completing this course before taking private lessons.

The rates for 1:1 private training programs start at $200 CAD and up, depending on the training program you choose. To discuss 1:1 training get in touch through the contact form.

What if I'm preparing for a specific performance?

It’s best to start training months in advance of a performance. This way you have time to make changes necessary to put your best foot forward.  I recommend starting lessons as soon as possible well in advance of any vocal performance goal, whether it’s a recording, an audition, a choral or solo performance or a tour. 

Where are the 1:1 lessons held?

All of the training I provide is held virtually. I do provide in-venue support for live shows, voice coaching for film & tv and consulting for clients at recording studios. I can provide in-person lessons by special request for specific projects.
what clients say

I have worked with several vocal coaches in my career and I haven’t been able to find someone as detailed, focused, and professional as Alida. With a busy touring schedule majority of my year, she has made herself available when I really need her on tour and she has helped me set up an entire team for vocal health and general practice. I have received multiple compliments on my voice improving over the past year and my vocal cords have not given out a single time performing 125+ shows in 2019.
