Carol F. Oceanside, CA

I help students naturally project their voice. Breathing, not straining the voice, sounding confident, pronunciation, dynamics. I've helped business men and women give better presentations, sound better on the phone and give that polished air of confidence.

About Carol

I've sung most of my life. I've been teaching since 1991. I listen to a lot of different singers but my real passion is jazz, Brazilian music and blues. I've performed in the US as well as England and Scotland. I also have recorded 2 Cd's. I teach many different styles of music and work with beginners to advanced. Both of my teaching studios are equipped with a P.A. system so that students can also work on their performance skills. What's the first lesson like? When I first meet a new student I ask about what experience they've had singing. Even beginners sing in the shower or along with their favorite CD's. Finding out what kind of music the student listens to and wants to sing is also a big part of the first lesson. I find that it is more motivating and fun to work on ...

Just before I met Carol for my first singing lesson, I expected to feel embarrassed to sing in front of her. I was quite nervous, actually. But Carol's professional yet fun, laid back manner disintegrated all my trepidation and I left giddy and excited for the next lesson. She is a very encouraging and supportive instructor, and I feel so lucky to have found her!

My daughter had just one lesson with Ms. Ayanna at Chula Vista Best Buy location. Unfortunately, the classes were discontinued at that location, and we couldn't continue with Ms. Ayanna.
Ms Ayanna has a wealth of knowledge, and she is very patient and encouraging. Within a short time she provided tips to improve my daughters breathing techniques ...and did some vocal exercises that made my daughter to literally sweat (My daughter has had 5 years of prior training and this had never happened before :) ) .
I wish the very best to Ms. Ayanna, and to would recommend her to any student.

Ayanna is a "natural" teacher. Intuitive, she helped me remove obstacles to reveal my authentic voice by meeting me where I was and providing generous feedback on multiple aspects of my process. The space in her home is professional, comfortable and flows with good energy. I highly recommend her services!

By far the most wonderful singing instructor I've ever encountered. Salli is very thorough in her teaching but she also makes it VERY FUN! Always encouraging at every lesson which in turn nurtured confidence within myself and my voice. Salli truly cares about the success of each and every one of her students. Always willing to go beyond the call! One instance of this great example was an evening of Karaoke. Salli knew I was deathly afraid of being in front of an audience so to build up my confidence she decided to join me on stage. WOW!!! Studying with Salli goes beyond the Teacher-Student relationship. I also gained a life long friend. I can't thank her enough and am forever grateful to her for always believing in me.

I have been singing since I was a child however never had any proper vocal training until I started taking vocal lessons with Salli. She taught me many helpful techniques with singing from breathing mechanics to how to accurately mouth the words I am singing to project my notes better as well as many other techniques. Over the years I have used her techniques when recording and performing and I have seen my vocal abilities enhance and become way better than they have ever been. Salli is very professional and very knowledgeable in music and singing, and also a very sweet and sympathetic instructor. She really wants to help you perfect your art and will make sure it does happen, as I have seen it happen with me! She is also very patient and you can always discuss with her what you need to work on. I HIGHLY recommend Salli as your musical instructor, she truly enjoys her craft and loves to help her students.

Learning a lot!

Kevin is a very knowledgeable, dedicated, patient, flexible, and professional instructor. He is very observant about when to push me to practice more and when to just allow me space to absorb what I've just been taught. And occasionally when I get a little frustrated with my guitar and progress is particularly slow for me we sometimes switch to vocal coaching.
Plus I have an incredibly busy work schedule and Kevin has always been very willing to adjust my lesson time as necessary.

Great Voice Lessons

I've been trying for a while to get to the level where I can confidently sing, knowing that I am doing the best my voice can attain. Kevin is helping me pull through my bad habits, and re-enforcing the proper technique without drowning out my personal style.

Really helpful! Thanks, Kevin!!

I had a great lesson with Francesca. Very knowledgeable and worked and helped me quite a bit on learning and understanding several aspects of the guitar.

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!

I've had the pleasure to take lessons with Taylin for several months. She has great gratitude for the students she works with (she tells me all the time about her wonderful connections with her students), and it really shows.

She's a highly energetic, kind, very bubbly, and extremely encouraging with her students. She was able to bring out the vocal range in me week after week, which shows that her lessons are sticking and helping me progress. She's always excited use her iPhone to record progress, and then emailing them to me.

One of the unique things I found important with her is that she will prepare you for the situation you want to be in. For me, I was looking to develop a voice for doing gigs on stage, as well as studio recording. Her busy background in doing gigs and studio work was EXACTLY what i needed to get me ready to perform on stage (my past instructors didn't have much stage performance experience). She has strong knowledge of what it's like to perform in a different atmosphere, and to not be discouraged by it. In the practice space, she'll help push you to the edge (we practiced many challenging songs that had me worn out even after a 45 minute session)

She also develops lesson plans that are tailored to accelerate the things you want to learn, rather than wasting time going places where you're not interested in. This becomes important if you want to stay engaged.

In terms of the environment, her studio is very well kept (she rearranged her living room many times, just to get a new feel). She also will have the ability to set up a studio, if you wanted to learn how to studio record. She has a dog as well that is very well mannered. Parking is easy to find on the street.

In short: if you envision yourself wanting to be a rock star on stage, Taylin will help paint that picture for you. She will be able to push you to the top.
