Frequently Asked Questions

Where do lessons/coaching take place? 

We Zoom! Zoom has a terrific set-up for music (we can show you in your lesson) and allows students from all over to study at Studio GRC. 

 

Need Rebecca in person? Great! she would love to join you IRL. Reach out, and let’s chat! Projects are arranged on a case-by-case basis.

What is the difference between Voice Lessons and Vocal Coaching?

While there can be an overlap between voice lessons and vocal coaching, understanding the difference will help you get the most out of your session. 

 

Voice lessons: Voice lessons are for singers/actors at any stage of their learning, looking to focus on and develop a healthy, reliable and consistent vocal technique. Study includes vocal health, breath work, vocal register development, music fundamentals and more.

Vocal Coaching: Vocal coaching focuses on the performance elements of your singing - audition skills, tweaking lyrics, performance mindset or helping you tap into and access the emotional core of your work. Singers preparing for auditions, recordings or live performances often hire a vocal coach. 

 

Coaching focuses not on the technical singing (although we can cover that too) but on the performance and interpretation of the work.

How old do you begin Vocal Lessons at?

We begin singing lessons with singers aged 12 and above.

How old do you begin Piano Lessons at?

We begin with students age 7. 

Can you be my vocal producer virtually?

Yes! With so much music being created and recorded virtually, it has never been easier for performers to work with their dream production teams without being inhibited by location or prohibitive studio rental fees and travel costs. 

 

Rebecca works with many artists virtually and would love to learn more about you and how she can help.

What is your payment/cancellation policy?

Due to the high demand for sessions at The Studio GRC, all sessions must be paid for in advance. A 24-hour cancellation policy is adhered to without exception. 

 

All invoices must be paid 48 hours before your lesson is set to occur. Late payments may result in late fees or loss of lesson time.

 

Weekly students will receive invoices on a month-to-month basis.

If you are late for a lesson, you will receive the time remaining in that slot. Lessons will not run over to accommodate for lost time . If you are more than 15 minutes late, the lesson may be forfeited for that day.

24 hours notice or more must be given for any cancelled or rescheduled session. If proper notice is given, your session will be made up at a mutually agreed upon time. 

 

No sessions will be eligible for rescheduling after the 24 hours notice period. 

No refunds are offered. 

Can you be my vocal producer in person?

Of course! If you would like to work together in person, Rebecca is available for in-studio recordings and in-person coaching and would love to learn more about your project. Send us a message, and we can discuss it! 

How do we get started? 

We are so excited you have chosen Studio GRC and can’t wait to meet you and begin our work together! 

 

Any new client is welcome (and encouraged!) to book a free, 10-min consultation. This time is for you to ask us any questions you may have and get a sense of what working at Studio GRC is like. 

 

While we won’t be doing any singing or production work during this consultation, we will use the time to get to know each other and discuss your goals.

 

Want to jump in? If you know you would like a lesson or coaching session, please feel free to book a session here.

Performance Related Absences:

As Rebecca is a working musician and actor, absences may occur. In the event of a performance-related absence, your lesson will be made up in full. 

 

We thank you in advance for your understanding of our policies. 

Is there a minimum number of sessions required?

Nope! There is no minimum number of sessions required, as all clients have different needs and goals. 

 

However, if you would like weekly sessions, a weekly time must be secured in advance to guarantee your time slot is held for you. 

 

As consistency is key for learning, weekly sessions are highly recommended. Most of our lesson and coaching clients have weekly sessions.
