I know that making music in community can be transformational, and I feel strongly that it should be accessible to everyone. For this reason, I reserve some sliding scale spots for working class and poor participants in all of my classes, workshops, and private voice lessons.
I believe that teachers and artists deserve to make a living wage. For this reason, the number of sliding scale spots I am able to offer is limited. Please be mindful that if you sign up for a sliding scale spot when you can truthfully afford the standard rate, either on your own or with help from family or friends, you are limiting access for others.
Here's how my sliding scale works:
The scale has three tiers. You choose where you fall and what you pay within that range according to your own assessment of your class background and current financial situation. I don't require any explanation.
