Frequently Asked Questions:
Where does class take place?
Class will take place at a New York City studio. Past locations include Ripley, Pearl, Shetler and Champion.
How do I pay?
I accept cash, check and paypal, venmo - due in full on the first day of class.
I'm in the Intro class and I have a super important audition. Can I miss class?
First of all, congratulations. Book it! The Intro class is cumulative, so when you miss class, you will be a week behind your classmates. This isn't fair to anyone, so I ask that you book a studio with a piano and schedule a one on one tutoring session with me before the next class so you can be caught up. I offer these tutoring sessions at a reduced rate of $45. If you must miss class, you can only use this makeup offer once during the 5 weeks.
I hear there's homework for the Intro class. I don't like homework. Do I really have to do homework?
Yes. Just like anything in life, you will only improve if you practice. The more you put into it, the more you will get out of it. I can promise you that you will have all the tools you need to successfully read music in our 5 weeks together. I can't promise that you will be sight singing and ready to perform an entire Sondheim score in 20 minutes. I encourage you to be patient with the journey. Your success as a master sight reader/music theorist is in your hands, which is a wonderfully empowering thought.
But Liz, I do my homework but I just don't get it. What can I do?
Many students have wanted to address questions privately or continue their studies concentrating on piano proficiency or further sight singing outside of a class setting. I offer one on one sessions for $60 an hour. I ask that you book a studio space with a piano. I also offer coachings out of my studio in Williamsburg off the Lorimer L stop. You can come to me if you don't want to book a space.
I have questions that you didn't address here.
I would be glad to answer them. Just send me an email and I'll get back to you within 48 hours. .
Wait a second. I thought you were an actor. I'm trying to find out information about Liz Asti the actor.
