Teri D. Los Angeles, CA

Subjects Taught

Acting, Broadway Singing, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Singing, Songwriting, Speaking Voice

About Me

I teach students of all ages in a relaxed, encouraging, and fun way- but with the structure many beginners need to reach their goals and with the background of a professional singer! Students will see themselves making progress and reaching set goals! This encourages them to continue on their musical journey - becoming the very best they can be! We will also learn fun popular songs and look for opportunities to sing them. We will also learn many styles of pop singing as well -- from pop to rock to R&B to country & more! From beginners and just-for-fun singers to singer/songwriters to pros, each student will be able to learn the skills they need to sing from their heart and find their own true voice.

Teri has taught voice for over 15 years to all ages and all levels, led and trained various bands and groups for over 17 years. She is a club hit recording artist and premier LA vocal coach. Her vocals have graced full length CD's, cuts on various records, performances on TV and radio, and gained her a nomination for Best Female Vocalist, All Access Music Awards. She is the author of Vocal Essentials for the Pop Singer: Take Your Singing from Good to Great, from Hal Leonard Publishing. Teri has a Master's Degree in Education and a Bachelors Degree in Speech Pathology. She studied music at Blue Bear School of Music in San Francisco including music theory, vocal technique and vocal performance, guitar and stage performance. She had a dance club hit in the 90's which garnered success on mix shows and dance charts across the country.

She specializes in getting the best out of her students -- giving them a solid vocal technique to let their natural ability shine. Her students will attest to her positive, relaxed and encouraging teaching style.

In addition to learning the basics, Teri can help students get their voice in shape for events, school projects/plays, auditions (American Idol etc...), a solo or band project, and more!

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect a fun lesson with vocal warm-up exercises, and lots of singing, in a supportive environment. Teri works out of her home studio, so students can work with microphones and instruments.

Children
Voice lessons build confidence and enthusiasm, and help prepare children for performing in front of others. Singing at a young age develops vocal abilities, but more importantly develops a child's aural abilities (recognizing melodies, harmonies, etc.) as well as the ability to focus, take direction and be creative.

Performing / Recording / Vocal Health
Recording. performing and touring presents unique challenges to singers. By concentrating on breathing, vocal production and tension reduction, warm-up exercises, and range building exercises, these lessons help increase stamina, build vocal tone, and reduce the effects of vocal fatigue for those who sing long hours at a time.

Church / Worship Leading
Singing on praise/worship teams is an art form all of it's own. Lessons centered around this kind of singing focus on the areas of blending, tone, hearing harmonies, and keeping your part in a group. For the soloist / worship leader, lessons help in the areas of projection, tone, range, runs, and breathing.

About Me

Hi! My name is LeAnna and I am a performing artist and teacher in Los Angeles. I am 29 years old, live in Los Angeles, CA and graduated from San Francisco State University where I received my BA in Classical Music, my BA in Dance, with a focus in choreography, and a minor in Multi-Cultural Theatre. I work as an actor, singer, dancer, choreographer, Zumba instructor and teacher. I love the work that I do and teaching the performing arts is a great joy in my life.
So, just a little bit about me- My father was a saxophone jazz-playing musician who made music an important part of my life. I began piano when I was 7 years old and basically self-taught until I reached the university where I had some formal training. I fell into singing via theatre in high school and picked up trombone my junior where I played marching band and jazz band. Studying music at SFSU was very satisfying and now, I enjoy working as an independent and local performing artist.
For me, the performing arts is one of the greatest expressions of art on the planet. I cherish it in all of its forms, which is why I have such a strong, well-rounded background in many styles. For music, I trained for 9 years in classical voice while at SFSU and La Universidad de Catolica in Santiago, Chile, but always explored other styles. I sang for two years with the SFSU Gospel Choir and smaller jazz vocal groups, and over three years with the SFSU Afro-Cuban Jazz Ensemble, which is a mix of Latin folkloric music, Salsa and jazz. After I graduated, I had my own jazz quartet, the Happy Ensemble and now focusing on a great passion of mine- musical theatre!

As a teacher, I have been teaching private and group piano and voice music lessons for the past six years. I have taught from my home studio, at Sunset Music Academy, SF, with the Latimerlo Vocal Studio, (throughout east bay) and with Barbizon, SF and Saint Ignatius Preparatory, SF during the summer. I have worked with children as young as 5 years to adults in their 60s. I have also worked in after school programs for many years and assisted in designing music, dance and musical theatre programs for children K-8th. Teaching performing arts in very important to me. :)

*** Lesson Details ***
Considering taking lessons with me? Let me give you a sense of how I am as person, what I focus on and then how I structure lessons.

I am very insightful, sensitive, flexible, patient and focused. I like to have fun with lessons and I laugh a lot. I enjoy seeing my students learn and improve. With my training as a musician, I always make sure that there is good technique and good practice habits. I wouldn't consider myself totally laid back because I do expect students to practice, (otherwise, how do you expect to get better?) yet my expectations depend on the personal goals of the students. I am here to teach you what YOU want to learn and tailor my lessons to that. This includes teaching whatever style you want to learn, be it pop, classical, musical theatre or R&B. It's all good to me.

As for the lessons, I start with fundamental techniques that are then later applied to songs. My intention is to assist students in reaching their personal music goals, which could range from wanting to feel good about their voice to preparing for a talent show or audition. I always encourage students to share themselves and perform.
Depending on your level and interests, I later introduce how to read music, basic theory, ear training and more advanced performance techniques.

How I structure lessons:
Here is an example of what I typically would cover in an hour lesson for voice and piano.

Voice
1) body awareness and warm-ups
2) breathing exercises
3) vocalises
4) focus on one vocal technique for the lesson
5) ear training with solfegio
6) song and performance

Piano
1) body awareness and warm-ups (especially hands)
2) finger coordination exercises
3) scales and arpeggios
4) ear training with solfegio
5) song and performance

Thank you for taking the time to check out my profile. I hope that we get to work together soon and I look forward to hearing from you!

LeAnna

About Me

Stephanie has been singing and studying voice since she was a child! She holds a BFA from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. Stephanie has been lucky enough to study with some of the top teachers in the country and brings the experience she has gained directly to you!Stephanie is proud to share her student's vast array of musical successes.ƒ‚‚  From being cast on GLEE to being accepted into prestigous performing arts academies to conquering the Karaoke scene Stephanie's student's continue to motivate and inspire her!

*** Lesson Details ***
Music brings me immense joy, especially singing and I want the same thing for you!
We start each lesson with proper breathing technique, the cornerstone of all vocals. We move on to vocal exercises to condition the voice. Then we work on the songs that you are eager to sing!

I will use a piano when doing vocal warm ups and conditioning exercises. Whenever possible, I like to procure a recorded accompaniment for the songs we are working on. This frees me up to concentrate on listening to you sing, rather than my own playing. Students that play other instruments and accompany themselves when performing (such as a guitar) are encouraged to bring that instrument to their lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio has piano, area for parents to wait

*** Specialties ***
I believe that the speaking voice and singing voice are non-exclusive and spend time working with breath control, proper breathing techniques and voice support for both spoken and singing voice lessons.

About Me

Hello! I am a recent graduate from Luther College with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education with an Endorsement in Music. I am also a graduate of the Orange County High School of the Arts (OCHSA) in the Music and Theatre Conservatory. I have been involved in a variety of Musicals including Fiddler on the Roof (Fruma-Sarah) and West Side Story (Maria). I have also been involved in several Operas including Kurt Weill€™s Street Scene, and Mozart€™s Cosi Fan Tutte as well as Luther College€™s prestigious Nordic Choir. Through the rigorous conservatory program at OCHSA, I have had training in all different musical styles including Jazz, Pop, Rock and Roll, Classical, Opera, Choral Singing, and Theatrical Broadway Singing. I have had the opportunity to work under the direction of several Broadway stars including Susan Egan and Karen Culliver. My multiple years of both private piano and vocal lessons for many years have shaped the development of my own teaching.
As a private music instructor, my approach is to set goals for students to enable them to strengthen their techniques and develop their talent as performers and musicians. Whether you are a beginner or experienced, I look forward to working together on the growth of your musicianship.

It is my belief that all learners thrive in a positive and warm environment. The balance between having fun and reaching goals to be better musicians is something I offer when you take a lesson with me. My teaching style is individually based. This means that I adapt my teaching based on the styles and levels of learning of my students. Whether you have a passion for Opera, Piano, Musical Theatre, or Jazz, we will work together to have fun and achieve great sounds!
During my lessons I focus half of the time on technique and half of the time on performance. This balance has proved effective for my students, as it has helped with their intonation, expression, and breath control.
