Voice teacher Renee Grant-Williams' studio is located in historic downtown Nashville. Her studio hours are: Monday & Thursday 1:00-5:00, Tuesday 1:00-4:00 Central Time. However, we are always willing to try to make allowances for out-of-town students The fee for a 55 minute private voice session is $235. Cancellations require 24 hours notice. If Renee's fees or studio hours will notwork for you she has two excellent, long-time Associate Teachers you may wish to consider.
There are no contracts or predetermined number of singing lessons that must be taken. Some students take voice lessons with Renee for months, even years, to hone their craft. Whereas others come with one specific goal in mind and may only need one or two voice lessons.
Those traveling long distances seem to find it cost-effective to take multi voice lessons back to back or on sequential days. And those traveling from other countries or very long distances often schedule 6-8 singing lessons in one week. It all depends on your specific needs and Renee's availability. Renee's schedule does fill up quickly, so please do not wait until the last minute to call and attempt to get in. Local Hotels

“Teaching voice is very elusive," Renee Grant-Williams admits.” You have to describe in images what really can’t be described. It’s like wiggling your middle toe. You know you can’t do it, but you also know there are people who can. You could train yourself to do it, but you have to concentrate in some ways that are really very difficult.”

Renee’s the first person who actually taught me something that I could apply. And whatever I’m having problems with, I use her exercises. I probably wouldn’t have had a voice at all a couple of times if I hadn’t done it."—Kim Wilson Fabulous Thunder Birds
SESSIONS BY TELEPHONE or SKYPE
Renee offers vocal sessions by telephone to those students whose schedules or finances do not allow them to travel to Nashville or who have an unexpected emergency or delay. Consider trying a voice lesson by telephone or Skype if:
You want to begin voice lessons with Renee, but live far away.
You have to travel and cannot schedule as often as you would like.
You have a sudden emergency and must cancel with short notice.
You are touring and have a vocal problem that needs help NOW.
You broke your leg, wrecked your car, or are under house arrest.
"I took about 10 singing lessons over the phone with Renee. Phone lessons didn't differ very much from lessons face to face, but you do have to use a little more imagination. I would recommend my friends and anybody else new or old to take phone lessons with Renee." —Emma Mae Jacob
A phone session is easy, all you need is: A quiet place where you will not be disturbed
A landline or cell phone with a good speaker
A way to record both sides of the conversation
A boom box or CD player to play tracks
A full length mirror
A kitchen type chair

We will call you, so you will not incur long distance charges. Fees are the same as an in-studio voice lesson ($235). Payments for phone and Skype voice lessons must be made in advance so you will need to provide a credit or debit card. Vocal lessons by phone are available outside the 50 United States only if the student is willing to make the call and pay for the long distant charges.
A smart and easy way to prepare for your first voice lesson is to order Renee's three-part Vocal Master Class on DVD to help you grasp the basic techniques more quickly and save a great amount of time and money. It is especially important to study Parts 1 and 2 if your first singing lesson is by phone.
