Fee

I am continuing to charge my low fee of $60.00 per hour for all coachings. Once you confirm with me you will pay for all the arranged coachings in advance.

Payment must be received 72 hours in advance. I accept payments via VENMO, PayPal, or ZELLE

  • You must arrange to have an accompanist with you for each coaching. We will not work with recorded accompaniment in these sessions. I will suggest some coach/accompanists to you if you have difficulty finding one.
  • It is your responsibility to arrange and pay for the studio space in your name and your accompanist separately. See the SCHEDULING DROP DOWN Menu for more information.

Preparation

  • Please bring 2 copies of the music: one for the accompanist and one for me. Please do not bring your bound score, an ipad, or a copy with lots of music notes on it for me, but a clean copy on paper.
  • If your piece is not in French or English, I will need a legibly written word-for-word translation in English on the line of music: not a translation on another page, and not the existing English translation of the piece which is not word specific. I prefer my copy to be “loose pages” and not taped together as you would for an accompanist.
  • Your aria must be memorized “off book.”

Cancelation Policy

  • I need 72 hours to cancel or move a coaching time at no cost to you, since it will take me that long to replace the hour with another artist. You may cancel or re-arrange coachings after that, but it will not affect any fees paid or owing.
  • Please note: due to limited availability, there are NO cancellations for Weekend coachings: once confirmed, you must pay for that time.

Please read the above instructions for Preparation & Payment, and then contact Chuck Hudson using the SIGN UP BUTTON to arrange dates and times.

Singers say...

I highly recommend Chuck Hudson. If you like details and exactness, you would enjoy working with Chuck as much as I have. He is superb in terms of helping performers become extremely aware of every note in the score and every inch of one's body. When a singer [has] achieved his direction fully, it felt extremely powerful as if the singer had composed the music.
