I'm allergic to animals. Do you have any pets?

Yes, I have a little black cat called Mimmi so please prepare by taking antihistamines if you are allergic to cats. 

What can I expect when I arrive for my singing lesson if I am new to studying singing?

If you are a beginner and feel a bit unsure of what to expect, I can reassure you that you'll be absolutely fine!

You'll probably feel a bit nervous to begin with and that's perfectly normal. We will begin the lesson with a brief chat about your singing experience followed by breathing exercises and vocalising before turning to any repertoire.

It is very important to warm up the voice just as if you would (hopefully) warm up before you go running. If you are an experienced singer you know what to expect and you might have warmed up beforehand so we can get down to more difficult vocal techniques before turning to repertoire. Every singer is different from each other and I don't adhere to a certain school of singing trying to fit every person into a preconceived formula of "one glove fits all". 

Do I need to bring anything?

It would be great if you could bring sheet music for any songs or arias you want to work on and also bring an extra copy for me.
