Session students receive a regular, weekly lesson time slot in the schedule, in addition to all of the added bonuses of being an OVS studio member. Students will select a half hour, forty-five minute, or hour lesson weekly as available. (Hour lessons are typically reserved for advanced students and those adding basic piano.) Session members can do online lessons only, or if you are within driving distance of the west side of Cincinnati, you may optionally choose to take advantage of in-person weeks offered once a month in lieu of your online lesson those weeks.
Each lesson will consist of technical warm ups, often a quick sight singing exercise, and song work. This usually includes technical work, fine tuning, and polishing the songs after they are learned.
As needed, online, video and flex-fit lessons are interchangeable.

If desired, during our initial fit meeting (or at any time) we may choose to add on to your virtual singing lessons basic piano, music reading, audition preparation, competition preparation or even additional opportunities such as a solo mini-recital, help preparing for a recording, or other additions that are desired or determined to be of use for your goals. These add-ons may require additional lesson time, or additional costs for things like recital space, accompanist fees, recording studio time, etc. as these things will be outside of the studio.
Completely asynchronous, these lessons always fit your schedule! Record at your own time and pace, and get feedback throughout the week. These are recommended for adult and advanced students who are able to self-assess and work alone along with some additional guidance. They are also wonderful for students in a different time zone. These lessons are typically geared towards song preparation, though technique work will be included as needed. Flex-fit lessons are held via Marco Polo app or Seesaw app (both free). The flex-fit sessions run concurrently with the sessions as above, and will receive one bonus week in addition to the studio break.
As needed, flex-fit lessons are interchangeable with online lessons or video lessons.
Individual lessons are available without session registration at a non-contracted rate as long as there is an opening in the schedule. These can be helpful if you need a touch up, have an audition coming up or have an extremely irregular schedule.
Available as online lessons, video or flex-fit/asynchronous lessons.

“I’ve experienced great results taking lessons with OVS. Since starting lessons, I've seen significantly reduced muscle tension, improved vocal range, better tone and vocal control, improved confidence in my singing, and a whole lot of new knowledge about vocal anatomy and singing in general.”
