Chad teaches weekly lessons online via FaceTime, Zoom and other platforms as needed. During the COVID-19 crisis, it’s sometimes difficult to be motivated. That said, voice study is a practice and lessons can provide an anchor when everything else seems unmoored. Sheltering in place can be the time to get into vocal shape without the stress of an upcoming performance or audition. Virtual lessons provide benefits such as ear training and sight reading. Without in-lesson accompaniment, your ear will be challenged and will improve with the practice of a cappella singing.
