Lessons begin Monday, August 26, on the first day of class. There are only 14 weeks in the semester now, so here's the deal: if you have not registered, I cannot teach you. If I do not have your schedule, I cannot book a time for you. If you do not have a lesson this week, I will not make it up and you will receive an F for the week.
This is the plan for the coming week, though as those who have not sent schedules yet may cause some necessary rescheduling. Keep your eyes on this blog several times a DAY until things settle down. Shane: You are the only one who has not submitted your availability yet. You know what to do.
Please note the odd beginning and ending times of lesson times: this is due to university class blocks. Be aware of the off-hour timing, and come on time (if not a bit early, if you wish to take advantage of constructive rest before singing).
Bring something prepared for your first lesson: this may be an aria for opera auditions, something I have assigned, or something you'd really like to work on that we can explore together.
If you wish to have a pianist during your first lesson, email Dr. Chris Steele at email@example.com. He is our new, full-time staff accompanist. He may or may not be your pianist for the semester, but is available for everyone this first week. Give him the respect due him by giving him your music in advance.
