My studio already has a singing program, can we still be part of VoxKinetic?
Absolutely! Our heart is to resource and equip dance schools, not to come in and take over. We know there are some amazing teachers our there and we want to get beside them to empower them to be the best teachers they can be. We’ll work with your existing staff to help make your singing program even more awesome than it already is. Your existing singing teacher(s) will have the same access to VoxKinetic teacher training and certification.
Can you help me set up a private singing tuition program at my dance school? / Can you help me set up a singing group program from scratch?
Yes and yes! That’s what we live and breathe. Not only can we help you, we’ll even let you learn from our mistakes to save you from making them too!
What if I don’t have a singing teacher? I have so much trouble finding reliable and skilled singing teachers. Can you help?
Definitely! We have an ever-increasing database of trained VoxKinetic teachers, and we’re always happy to put the word out when a studio is in need of a teacher. Obviously all hiring decisions are your own, but we can also provide you with information about the key skills and experience to look for.
Who employs the teachers? How much do they get paid?
Dance studios engage singing teachers the same way they engage their dance teachers. We're happy to connect you with available SVA certified teachers, and then you take it from there.
Singing teacher rates are comparable to dance teacher rates. We recognise that rates of pay vary according to geographical area, studio norms and teacher experience. When we talk to you about your studio's unique needs, we'll be very happy to give you some recommended rates.
What’s included, and what incurs an additional fee?
VoxKinetic student fees cover:
Lesson plans for your classes (based on the SVA curriculum)
SVA Online access for your students and teachers
Online weekly group mentoring sessions for teachers
SVA teacher training and certification
Additional fees apply for:
Exams (exam costs are paid by students and include exam fees, books, accompanist fees where applicable, and a small administration fee that we charge so that we can offer excellent support for exam students)
Workshops and masterclasses where we supply a guest teacher
Will you help get the word out about my studio?
Yes! We will have a directory on our website of all the wonderful studios that offer VoxKinetic to their students. We also love to champion our VoxKinetic studios on our social channels - we want to see your singing program exceed your wildest dreams as you discover the precious, unique voices of your students.
Will VoxKinetic modules help us to prepare material for our studio concerts and eisteddfods?
Yes! We create space in lesson plans for your students to work on concert performances.
Can you help me create studio singing concerts?
We have VoxKinetic Blueprints to guide you towards creating amazing, profitable concerts with a minimum of fuss!
What class sizes does VoxKinetic work for?
We'll discuss your unique needs and recommend class sizes based on your situation.
Tell me more about the exam options!
When we first started teaching, the exam options for contemporary singers were very limited, but in the past few years some incredible new syllabuses have emerged. Very popular options are the AMEB Musical Theatre syllabus, and the Rockschool Vocals syllabus. We've been putting our students through these exams for some time now, and through VoxKinetic we offer support for your students and teachers to prepare for these exams.
This sounds great, is it expensive?
No - we charge a small per-student, per-week fee. We encourage you to build this cost into your class fees, even if that means your singing class is a little more expensive than your other classes. Because we offer a premium product in SVA Online, parents can see the value they are getting for a very small weekly fee.
Some of our optional products and services incur an additional fee - we’ll make it clear in advance whether any additional costs will apply. There is no onboarding fee, though you might choose to purchase some equipment for your studio - we can help you work out a plan.
We'll talk specific financial details with you in our initial conversations with you.
Do I need lots of fancy (and expensive) equipment?
We get it - music gear can be expensive. But it doesn’t have to cost a fortune - we’ll look at what equipment you already have and help you create a solution that fits within your budget. It’s quite possible that you already have everything you need to get started.
Is there a discounted trial period?
Yes! Your first term (10 weeks) is half price. This gives you a chance to be sure that VoxKinetic works for your studio.
What if a student leaves - am I stuck paying their VoxKinetic fees?
Ugh, don’t you hate that?! So do we - which means that if a student discontinues singing with you, you will not be charged for them from the following week after you provide us with notice.
Is Tim available to present a workshop and/or masterclass at my studio?
Yes! Please contact us for pricing details and to discuss the unique needs of your students.
Got a question?
Just drop us a line and we'll be happy to help.
