What happens at the Getting To Know You Introductory Session?

At the GETTING TO KNOW YOU introductory session we will discuss your goals and how we can help you with them. We will professionally evaluate your voice with assessment scales; you may sing a song if you would like to. (Just a verse/chorus without accompaniment is fine). We will then choose a regular weekly lesson time. Payment is submitted at the session to reserve the first sessions, using the debit or credit card you registered with. The GETTING TO KNOW YOU introductory session does not in any way obligate you to lessons. It’s a chance for you to meet with the teacher of your choice and decide if you would like to make a commitment to the lessons.

The purpose of the in GETTING TO KNOW YOU intro lesson is for you to:

  1. Have your voice professionally evaluated.
  2. Receive a plan of action from us based on The Eight Steps of Vocal Development to address your unique vocal challenges.
  3. Discuss your goals.
  4. If you decide to commit to regular lessons, to reserve your regular weekly spot in our schedule and prepay for your first month of sessions.

Be sure to indicate on the form which lesson plan you prefer: lessons with studio owner and Master Teacher Tricia Grey, MM, or LESSONS FOR LESS with a Sing Like a Star Associate Teacher. Tricia Grey only does consultations for students wishing to study with her.

Be sure to indicate which studio you prefer: SLaS East Cobb, SLaS Alpharetta, or Online Voice Lessons, and provide us with a general time preference. We will find the nearest spot available in our schedule.

Tricia Grey, MM teaches at the SLaS Alpharetta studio on Wednesdays and Thursdays. She teaches at the SLaS East Cobb location on all other days. Online lessons are held every day.

Associates are available at both studio locations 7 days a week.

The GETTING TO KNOW YOU introductory session does not in any way commit you to a series of lessons, although we hope you will become a Sing Like a Star student! You have the option to start lessons any time after the evaluation has taken place.
