ABOUT - The Development Sessions [aka TDS]
We are professionals who specialise in providing eco-friendly and ethical services - including various music, development, management, wellbeing and coaching services. These services provide many benefits. Including their ability to:
- open and challenge us to think differently
- enrich our lives - and
- bring different cultures together.
We have years of experience working in these sectors – and believe that anyone can perform well with the proper training, assistance and / or guidance. Just as important as the notes - is one's attitude, honesty and communication.
Unlocking one's passion is one of the first steps to becoming a professional - and maintaining professionalism. Through comprehensive expert support and training - and alongside a safe environment the stage is set for success to emerge.
As each client / student is different - so is each session and service. We take time to identify the key elements that require development/support and enable each student / client to achieve their personal best.
There will be times when your instructor/coach/tutor might recommend you also attend lessons / sessions or receive services from another member of the team... This is so your skill set can accumulate and 'comprehensive' improvement can be made.
Typically, we suggest students book one lesson/session per week, with additional lessons if there is a pressing audition, recording or upcoming performance. For music students and artists - we also encourage the inclusion of regular live performances and the practice of recording self as an integral part of their development plan.
4 times award-winning professional, Flora Finch is the creator of The Development Sessions.
After teaching for several years it became apparent that Flora's expertise as a tutor, coach, producer, assistant and researcher is best applied with a team of other professionals [i.e. tutors, coaches, practitioners, researchers, producers, engineers, writers, arrangers and musicians]. When required they discuss pedagogies and train, practice, record, rehearse, produce, arrange, write and/or perform together. They also share research and support each other's clients, projects, organisations and students.
Flora is available both alone and with support from various other professionals who perform professionally including Meshach Broderick, Tiffany Berton and Rita Campbell... Please find links to their showreels and performances below:
