Voice Lessons:
I tailor each lesson to the individual. I believe in a solid, vocal foundation in order to sing in any style. Daily vocal exercises, breathing exercises, and healthy tone production are the basis for my teaching.
Learning to sing requires knowledge about the vocal instrument and the musculature involved.
Acting exercises are also incorporated into the text analysis of each song in ...

Great with my kids!

I've been bringing my kids to Renee for 4 years. She has a great way of relating to the kids and I appreciate her dedication and discipline.
She has a lot of resources and always is sending my kids home with extra materials to help them learn about music reading.

Not only is she a great teacher, but she can actually play and sing at a professional level. My kids are going to be with her until they graduate from high school!

We have really had a lot of fun working with Francesca! My daughter and I have been taking guitar lessons for a few months and in that short time we have learned new skills along with a sense of motivation to develop ourselves as musicians. I really appreciate how Francesca teaches with a variety of techniques in order to meet the needs of all different learners - she inspires and keeps us enthusiastic to learn. She listens to what is needed for each student and makes each lesson fresh and fun. We're so happy that we found her as a teacher and I would definitely recommend her!

My 14 year old daughter and Francesca have been working together for 2 years now. Initially the lessons were geared towards piano to build a foundation to singing and all music, and we have incorporated singing for the last year. My daughter and Francesca have built an understanding together on what to work on, focus on, and build on. My daughter is the ability to sing and play piano simultaneously, each week coming to Francesca with what she is inspired by with her own natural skills and Francesca knows how to take this to the next level. My daughter trusts Francesca and her guidance and is motivated by everything she shares. If you are looking for an instructor to motivate you to be a confident musician and not just someone who plays an instrument well, she is the one! We love Francesca!

Initially, I hired Francesca purely as a singing coach. It had been years since my last singing performance outside of my car or shower and I needed help to brush-up my technique and help me to build upon my current knowledge to grow as a singer. What I got from my lesson's with Francesca was far more than I could have imagined. In my first lesson, she posed the "genie in a lamp" scenario...if I had a genie that could grant me three wishes, what would they be. Once we talked about my goals of growing, not only as a singer, but also as a performer, songwriter, pianist, and guitar player, a door to the world of musical theory and sound singing technique swung open with such vigor, I was consumed with excitement following my first lesson. I was finally on the right path to get where I want to be as an artist.

Francesca will push and guide you as far as you need to go, but only if she knows that's your goal. She routinely checks-in to make sure we are progressing in the right direction and is a great person for suggestions (with no pressure) and to bounce new ideas off of. She is realistic, but allows you to dream-up the life you want, in regards to music. She is a God send and I am so thankful I found her as a coach.

Francesca is an amazing find and I cannot wait to see where my coaching journey leads into the world of music and performing!

Young and inspirational. "You learn something new everyday" is most definitely true with Sarah and how she teaches. She was slow at first, but one she got to know me and what I desired to learn from her, she was able to envision and teach me well. :)

Rebekah L. Carlsbad, CA

I will help a student with style, and nuances relating to opera music. I have been in several operas and can help you choose arias or prepare for a competition.
I teach in very simple to understand instructions so as not to confuse the student. I help students visualize their anatomy, and I demonstrate the actions I ask of them to perform. Singing is meant to be stress-free, and all about releasing tension in order to let the beautiful sound become uncovered.

About Rebekah

Each person has differently-shaped resonating chambers and vocal folds that make up their anatomy. The way the sound resonates inside is what gives each person his or her own unique voice. It takes a voice teacher with a specialized training in what to look and listen for to understand what is a healthy exercise and what is not. I will help you or your child achieve their goals– but also it takes daily practice to achieve desired results. It takes at least three months of training to experience measurable improvement. Please be patient and keep it up!

I help people of all ability levels:

-Improve pitch accuracy and the tone of the voice
-Increase the singing range (low to high)
-Use breath support to increase the volume of the voice
-Release muscle tension during speaking ...

Here are some testimonials from my previous students and employer.

It has been a honor to have such an inspirational singing teacher at our studio. Rebekah has built up her student base and continued to receive referrals, due to her stellar teaching skills. Right from the start at our studio, Rebekah set a goal for the number of students she wanted and she met the goal quickly. Our studio families enjoyed working with her and brought their friends to take singing lessons with Rebekah.

It was a pleasure to have an organized teacher, implementing a system for all of her students performances. She developed a rapport with our piano teachers, who accompanied for her students at each monthly recital event. By her planning ahead and creating the performance binder & routine, she had the most students, consistently prepared and participating to perform. Her students were taught the importance of their weekly lessons, practice, poise, confidence and projection when singing. She introduced new skills, from warming up to taking a bow. Rebekah has given our students a solid foundation in their singing careers. She took time with each student to keep their music selections fresh and new. She also helped our studio keep on top of the current trendy music, which ALL of the students enjoyed!

Rebekah has been part of our musical teaching family for 2 years. It's a joy to see how she is using her gifts in music and sharing her passion for singing!

Our studio has been blessed with heavenly voices at several of our Students Sharing's and Parent Programs. We wish her all the best in her new adventures!

I have had the pleasure of working with Rebekah Leonard for two years. I have had several instructors since I started voice training, but none of them helped me grow vocally as much as she has. With Rebekah, I have studied everything from musical theater to classical pieces. She allowed me to pick my own songs while also suggesting other pieces that would challenge my voice and allow it to improve over time. Rebekah is easy to work with. She provides helpful advice and really encourages you when you do something right or when you take a step forward. I consider Rebekah to be a friend. I look up to her because she is so talented, not just as a performer, but also as a teacher. Anyone who has the opportunity to study with Rebekah should seize it immediately; it benefited me greatly.

—Zayna Altoubal


Rebekah Leonard is an amazing voice teacher. She may be young but I was amazed by her level of knowledge about voice. She gave my daughter tips to protect her voice long term from potential injury. She helped my son with his musical performances by giving us tips on how to sing in a musical while being sick. Her tips are practical and really worked! She gave tips for auditions and how to look your best. She is very professional and organized a beautiful parent performance with her students.

—Mrs. Pittner


Dear Rebekah,
You have played such an important role in our lives. Bringing our daughter to you for voice lessons was such an amazing decision. We watched her blossom and learn so much from you. Her confidence roared and she was able to take on new challenges and exceed. We couldn't thank you enough. We will miss you!

—Mike and Catalina Rankin


Hi Mrs. Rebekah!!
I've always loved singing, and I've always loved music. But there are certain ways I learn things, and you completely understand them. You understand what I want to achieve, and you understand how I want to go about accomplishing my goals. You understand my voice and my thoughts and you apply them to how you teach me. I have become so much more confident in my singing and my music because of you, and I've learned so much in the time we've had together. You got to know me on a personal level, and without that I never would've been able to have grown the way I have. You never pushed me to do anything that I didn't want to do, but you encouraged me to do what would make me stronger and more confident. I loved how you never made me do anything, but you instead inspired me to work harder and handed me the tools that I needed to be a better singer. You have changed my life so much, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Because I knew you as a friend as well as a teacher, you truly were one of the best teachers I have ever had. Thank you for everything that you have done for me, because I have not only been changed for the better, but I have also been changed for good.
Love,

About Eulis

Hello! Thanks for visiting my profile. Allow me to tell you a bit about myself:
I have been performing as a musician for about 20 years and acting since I was a small boy. I started my musical education as a woodwind player and settled in to the wonderful world of singing over time. Music has opened me up to so many opportunities from touring the world to performing in marvelous concert halls and working with some of today's most revered artists, as well as giving me the opportunity to expand my performance through acting in various plays, musicals, television, and film.

Performing has been my salvation. It has been a best friend and constant source of joy, and I share this gift with others so that it might offer them the same. After 10 years of teaching, I have new ...

I highly recommend Eulis. I'm an experienced singer in the middle of an album project, and I was able to take away some huge tips I was able to put into practice immediately. His ears are incredibly sensitive and can hear what's going on with you in world class form. Highly recommend!!!

I could not recommend a better teacher and person in Eulis. His kind spirit, patient demeanor, and gifted voice provides any student with a strong example of what a professional musician looks like. What most people need is someone who doesn't just paint by the numbers but who is able to assess your goals, talents and desires and match it with just the right program; you'll progress quickly and enjoy every minute of the effort. Because of his vast experience, breadth of skills and years of singing, Eulis provides the kind of musical insights that help you find out who you are and discover or refine your voice. Thanks, Eulis for all the great work we've done together and I look forward to more!

Before we get to Eulis, let’s talk me ;) I am 18 years old, and until about a month ago I had not a bit of experience in singing. At all! YOLO though, so I got online and did the searches, and immediately found Eulis. I read he had some experience performing with Disney and he had some videos of himself singing. I was drawn in by his talent and apparent, very genuine love for voice and music, just as you probably were, in that you are taking the time to read his reviews! Anyways, let me just fill you in to how much more there is to Eulis. Right off the bat, Eulis is an extremely comfortable spirit who gives off a very sincere eagerness to help you in the journey to reaching your vocal potential. Every lesson I have had, I am surprised at how easy it is to develop a skill which forces so much vulnerability from those who try to master it. Eulis creates a completely safe and fun environment in his studio were you can take risks and play with music and your voice. I feel I have his complete dedication and attention in every minute of a lesson, and even through some assignments he gives me to complete independently. Also guys, improvement is fast under Eulis’s direction. In lessons he teaches to condition the entire performer. In other words, equal focus is split between the physicality and techniques of singing and the connection to emotions in music. The combination makes you feel more like a pro than you ever thought you would! Honestly, I could not be more confident that Eulis has the talent to bring out the best of my own. Just book your first lesson to see what I mean. Happy singing!
