A 30 minute private lesson is most suited to younger students. During these lessons, you will  learn a variety of  basic vocal warm ups followed by working on a song. Throughout this process, we incorporate safe singing practices including learning proper vocal technique, breathing and basic theory.


A 45 minute private lesson has a similar structure to the 30 Minute lesson but gives us more than enough time to cover  our vocal warm ups/breathing in depth.  We also spend time working on a song and getting it performance ready.


A 60 minute private lesson is ideal for senior students, as it gives us enough time to cover a range of areas. During these lessons, you will cover a wide variety of vocal exercises such as scales, arpeggios, register transitions and range extension. We work on developing a strong vocal technique focusing on breathing and articulation. We also take a look at performance skills and how to perform to your audience.

All students at ADVC must give a minimum of 24 hours’ notice for cancellation of a lesson or full fee will be charged. No refunds will be issued. Students who provide 24 hours’ notice are eligible for 1 “make up lesson” per term, which can be arranged with the teacher.
Please note, by cancelling a lesson without notice, the teacher is inconvenienced and misses out on the possibility of earning income from another student, as your lesson was specifically reserved for you.

Sophia hasn’t stopped talking about the holiday workshop with Alana. I was a little apprehensive sending her off without a someone she knew in tow however she was bursting at the seams to get back on the second day. I was really surprised at Sophia’s confidence and engagement, largely due to Alana’s amazing coaching skills. Would highly recommend this program!

Alana is truly amazing. She has a beautiful disposition and is always so happy and welcoming to all her students. My warmed to her from the very first lesson. She has learnt a few different songs this term and her singing and confidence have blossomed.

So happy to have fallen upon Alana and we even doubled our singing time with her after the first 2 weeks! Can’t wait for the holiday workshop and next term!
