Here are a few ways we are staying healthy and asking our amazing families to help us by doing their part:
Instruments are cleaned after each session. We use lysol or Clorox products to wipe each and every instrument and supply used in each session. If your loved one is sensitive to any of these products, please let me know and provide a preferred alternative.
We are washing our hands and using hand sanitizer constantly! Please don’t be alarmed if we pause a session to wash our hands or use hand sanitizer especially after a sneeze or cough. If your loved one is sensitive to generic alcohol based sanitizer, please let me know and provide a preferred alternative.
We are staying home when we are sick and want you to as well! Please help us not spread germs to any of our team and we will do the same! If your loved one or you are sick, please cancel your session (try to do so 24 hours in advance) and we will make sure to get you on the schedule when you are better-I promise!
How can we still have sessions if we are sick?
I’ve been facilitating some skype sessions for over a year with clients and for my own personal vocal coaching and it works great! We will just have to plan ahead, be creative and make sure you have visuals, supplies and ways to make music at home. We can also do this if you’re not sick as well! Just let me know!

Life Hack: How to Connect with Your Kids
Use your favorite music
to help you relax. Of course, you can
simply turn on your go to relaxing song and listen; however, let’s take it a
step further and make your own relaxation playlist! This can be done on most streaming
services. Start off with a song or two
that are faster in tempo and/or more intense in sound and make the next two
songs a little slower/ less intense and continue decreasing tempo and intensity
until you’ve come to two songs that are slow enough for you to take deep
breaths with. Remember start fast and
end slow. You can change this playlist
at any time! Use what works for YOU!
Additional tip: Add some aroma therapy to your personalized relaxation session!
