I believe that being true to your unique voice helps you achieve the most from it. Get the right vocal toolkit - singing with proper support, strength & expression, which builds confidence, widens range, and finds YOUR best voice.
I have moved singing lessons ONLINE through this period. I know that keeping things going and a sense of normality is pretty essential at this unprecedented time! I have set up a "virtual office" online via whereby.com, which is "locked", meaning only the person having the lesson and me will be "in the room" at any one time, just to reassure you on the safety aspect. It sounds fancy, but it's really like Skype! At the start of the lesson, I'll just email a link, which the student would need to click on and then we're good to go.
