And here is a glowing quote from one of Joy’s SLaS students:
You asked for feedback and I wanted to let you know that my husband, Thom, and I are really enjoying our singing lessons with Joy.
Joy is a “joy” to take lessons with. She has been very fun, helpful and attentive and we are already seeing results. We are practicing daily and we think the exercises and program are exactly what we needed and we are big fans! Keep up the good work! It also gives me something fun to do in my terrible commute to work.

This document answers all your questions about lessons at SLaS.
2. Register and pay for a GETTING TO KNOW YOU (GTKY) introductory session
At the Getting to Know You (GTKY) Introductory Session, Joy will evaluate your voice, find a spot in her regular weekly schedule, and reserve your first month of sessions (if you decide you want to commit to the lessons).
The purpose of the GETTING TO KNOW YOU (GTKY) introductory session is…
for Joy to:
1. Professionally evaluate your voice and share with you our plan to address your unique vocal challenges with the SLaS Eight Steps of Vocal Development Program.
2. Provide you with a sample of what the SLaS lesson experience is like.
3. Give you the opportunity to commit to regular weekly lessons in the teacher’s schedule if you would like to do so.
And for you to:
1. Receive a professional evaluation of your voice, your current level of vocal technique, and a specific plan to address vocal challenges.
2. Discuss your musical and career goals with us and receive feedback about how we can help you achieve them.
2. Reserve a weekly lesson time in your SLaS instructor’s schedule and prepay for your first month of sessions, (if you decide you would like to commit to the lessons).

1. Choose the location that is best for you: East Cobb, Alpharetta, or Online (or a combination of these!).
*Students who also wish to include guitar, piano, or songwriting, with Stephanie will register for hour-long weekly lessons, dividing the time between voice and the instrument of their choice.
After the GTKY, lessons are pre-paid monthly by automatic debit on the first day of the month, using the credit or debit card you registered for the GTKY with; we do not accept cash or checks at the lesson because we want to focus on your voice!
