Kea Student

Kea (Nestor Notabilis) are a rare bird found only in New Zealand, in the Southern Alps. They are particularly known for their curiosity and intelligence, necessary for their survival in their challenging and ever-changing alpine habitat. Kea thrive in a community environment with other birds, and will work together to achieve a certain objective. They are social birds, whose love of new things and endless curiosity gives them a memorable reputation with tourists and locals alike.

How we will work together

Being a part of GL Voice is about having a space and the tools to work towards your singing goals, whatever they are (and Georgia can help you work them out if you’re unsure). We work together in several different ways in the Studio:
Time Together:
Time together is scheduled in advance to respect everyone’s schedules. When we can’t make it to a scheduled time together, we switch to a different way of working together that week.
In Our Own Time:
We communicate and work together using different forms of communication and media.

How we communicate

There are no ‘office hours’ at GL Voice! You can communicate whenever it suits you – and I will too. Practicing at midnight and have a sudden question? Send it through, I’ll reply when I am able to!

Your studio community

Studio Classes:

Studio classes are to workshop songs you’re working on, to discuss challenges you’re facing, to catch up and chat and support each other in your singing.

Karaoke Parties:

Karaoke Parties are for performing for each other and friends and family, in a fun, light-hearted environment where everyone gets to join in.

When we will work together

I work with clients on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. 

My. hours are variably between 9:30 am and 6:00 pm, Paris time (CET/CEST)

Studio class takes place on Sunday afternoons, 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm, Paris time (CET/CEST), three times a year.

Karaoke Parties are Thursday evenings, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm, Paris time (CET/CEST), four times a year.

You can check my hours against your time zone to see if our schedules align by using this tool.
If you aren’t sure we’ll be able to find times that work together, or you have a very restricted schedule, please discuss this with Georgia when you book your trial lesson.

We work together at least* 36 weeks of the 40 weeks the studio is open over 12 months.

*Four “Off weeks” are built into the schedule. These are for when you or Georgia are completely unable to work on your singing goals, due to serious illness (can’t get out of bed) or unpredictable big life stuff.

Cancellations of live times together will either be:

  • In advance (such as holidays), and we will plan around them so you can still work towards your goals.
  • Last minute, but we can pivot to working in a different way (or you can choose to rest)
  • Last minute, and we can’t work in a different way because of serious illness or unpredictable big life stuff, so we will use the OFF weeks.

Our Studio Values

Our whole selves: You’re not just a singer, and I, Georgia, am not just a coach. We share the other parts of our lives we wish to, and we acknowledge how other parts of our lives affect and participate in and benefit from our singing.

Kindness: We are kind to each other, and especially to ourselves.

Joy: We sing because it brings us joy. We play, we have fun, and this helps our learning.

Honesty: We communicate honestly with each other, and we do our best to be honest with ourselves.

Diversity: We all have wonderful, unique, backgrounds and lives, and all diversity is welcome here. BIPOC, LGBTQ+, neuro-diverse, and singers with disabilities are welcome and celebrated.

Learning Together: We’re all learning, and we’re allowed to make mistakes, admit that we don’t know the answer, and fail. We learn from each other.

Safety: We strive to make sure the studio is a safe space, where you can be yourself, experiment, fail, succeed, and enjoy learning.
