After getting the building, most of Donna’s vocal coaching students are still online. However, the fact that Legacy has a building means that they have extra confidence in the business, because they can see it is growing. Initially, there was some apprehensiveness about transitioning to technical methods, but when they realised that it didn’t affect their learning. During lockdown, If it was not for the internet, Donna would have had to close down the business.
Before lockdown, Donna already had a number of online students who were located abroad - one in Los Angeles, USA, Romania, Kuwait, and Singapore. One student has been able to continue lessons through two moves across the country thanks to online learning.
“I was able to retain all my students, apart from one who contracted COVID, and is still currently ill, and cannot continue due to continuing respiratory problems.
“One of my students is seventy, and he has not been able to go anywhere. During lockdown, his mother sadly passed away, but every week, he attends his lessons without fail. He has had problems with his voice and speech, but his voice improves at the end of each lesson because of the technical exercises I do with him. He says he feels better on a physical and mental level after lessons. Sometimes if he feels low he doesn’t want to do it, but he does it anyway. Singing releases endorphins - happy chemicals - in the brain, and stimulates the vagus nerve, which in turn stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, calming you down if you are stressed - this is because of the vibrations and the breathing techniques that come with singing.
Whatever the new national lockdown looks like for you - and it affects everyone in unique and different ways - take some time to re-assess your priorities, and to adjust whatever you need to adjust in order to ensure that you, your career and/or your business are thriving and moving forward, whatever the situation.
