    I am a music teacher and have used these lessons. When are you going to make the other lessons?

      Hi Justin,

      I am working very hard at finishing my dissertation in the next few months so I will be back to making videos full time then. Until then I am working on some premium content that will be available soon. Be sure to sign up for my free newsletter if you haven’t already. I will be announcing the new material through the newsletter in the next few weeks.

      Thanks for letting me know you enjoy and use the videos. I am glad to be able to help fellow teachers in way I can.

      Hi prince,

      Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. I’m not sure I understand your question exactly but if you are asking about the ranges of the voice parts for Soprano, Alto Tenor and Bass for keyboard or vocal writing they are roughly Soprano C4 to F5, Alto G3 to C5, Tenor C3 to F4 and Bass G2 to C4. These are amateur/safe ranges to put these voices in.

      Let me know if that answers your question or if you need more help.
