The booking system goes live once a month working around Annabel’s busy TV/high profile client schedules.
There aren’t always slots and demand is high so please only book if you are sure you can commit to the slot as rescheduling is difficult and your fee is non refundable if cancelled within 7 days of your booking.
From Annabel ..
"1st Lesson - No need to prepare anything however if there's anything specifically you want to work on then bring recordings, backing tracks whatever you have and have the lyrics as memorised as you can. No worries either way though.
The first lesson is very relaxed and is loosely split into 3 parts."
1 - The Greet
Getting to know each other. Singing is largely both a physiological and psychological discipline. An informal chat discussing past training and performance experience (if any) and goals with regards to singing. What you hope to achieve out of the lessons. Most important for us to have a good working relationship and that as well as the client being right for me, that I'm right for the client! All very relaxed though and no particular standard is required. Just a hunger to learn!
2 - The Basics
Seeing where you're 'at' and following on from there. Checking in on technique (if any), and starting from there. Ironing out any bad habits.
3 - The Song
This largely depends on the session as we may not get this far! However if we get this far on the first session, I would listen to the client sing a song and workshop through it, listening to examples of the song and the genre it stems from. This is a process - but the right decision is always found.
