I’m interested in taking lessons online. How does that work?
Taking lessons via Skype or Facteime is revolutionizing the student/coach experience. Not only are these applications free to download and set up, it enables you to take your lessons from the comfort of your own home. We have local and international students who take advantage of this option.
Can you help me find an agent?
Yes. We’ve assisted several students with agency placement. However, We can not guarantee that each student will be singed.
Do you offer students the opportunity to showcase their talent?

We offer 3 showcase performance opportunities per year, where students have the opportunity to apply what they have learned on a mainstage fully equipped with sound, lighting and a production team. This a great way to work out any performance jitters and build your confidence and professionalism.
Do I have to sign an annual contract to take lessons?
Absolutely not. We want to earn your business. Our program is structured on a month-to-month basis. We believe our coaches offer the best training at a fair price so there’s need to lock anyone into a long-term contract.

Yes. We run several promotions each year for new students however, we always offer a 10% discount for families interested in registering more than one child.
