About Me

Cymbaline has been performing all her life. She began dance training at age 5, singing on stage at age 7, piano instruction at age 8, and flute at age 9. She has pursued the performing arts in her training, receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music (Vocal Performance and Education) from Azusa Pacific University, as well as a Masters in Education from Grand Canyon University. Cymbaline has been seen on stage in many musical theater productions, including playing Marian in The Music Man, Anna in The King and I, and the Blue Girl in Shout! She has also done theater and film, including playing Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice. She has taught voice, piano, and flute privately, as well as voice and musical theater classes. She has a great desire to pass on the knowledge she has gained through education and experience to anyone who has the desire to learn. She loves seeing students grow in the knowledge of music and performance and learning to apply their new skills. Music is the universal language, and the ability to play and sing will open up new doors of expression for each individual.

*** Lesson Details ***
My students can expect a strict teacher who also shows compassion. I will do everything in my power to help the student grow and achieve. It is up to the student to apply what they are learning so that they can move forward. I teach out of a variety of curriculum, depending on how the student best learns. For flute, I prefer the "Standard of Excellence" series, which, if they are in a band program, can be used for both group and individual study. For piano, the "Alfred" series is a very good tool, with lesson, performance, theory, and compositions books in multiple levels. For voice, I have a number of books that I use to pull material from depending on their level of ability and experience. I teach a classically based curriculum, focusing on correct breathing, posture, and technique. Once a person knows and is able to follow the rules of singing with a quality sound and solid technique, that person may then learn to bend those rules for other styles and genres that require different technique. After three months with me, I expect students, especially instrumental students, to have basic knowledge of reading music. They should be able to recognize notes and rhythms and where they are on the piano keyboard, or how they are fingered on the flute, or where they are (at least approximately) in their voice. I also will expect them to have some understanding and application of dynamics, tempos, time signatures, and other basics of music reading. After six months, I expect them to be able to play or sing one or more short-length songs all the way through correctly and consistently, with musicality. I will focus on details, and not let students who truly want to learn develop their ability in a mediocre capacity. I expect my students to practice, will encourage them to give 100%, and help them strive to be a little better each day than they were the day before.

*** Specialties ***
I am first a classical singer, and teach classical vocal technique as a foundation to any voice student. I also perform musical theater, and have taught music theater repertoire as a bridge between opera, or classical style singing to more modern forms. I am a dancer and have performed in musicals and operettas, and can teach stage presence, projection, body movement, and facial expression. I studied flute and played in wind ensembles through college. I also have played piano and accompanied for many years.

In her two years in Australia, Jacqueline gained professional experience in the dance industry working with choreographers Jason Gilkinson, The Squared Division, and Marko Panzic, performing with artists such as Ricky Martin, Jessie J, Flo Rida, Jason Derulo and Basement Jaxx.

Levels: Beginner - Advanced

*Am willing to travel more than 10 miles, depending on area. Just ask and I would be happy to let you know if that is an area I can travel to.

*** STUDIO EQUIPMENT ***

I'm happy to rent professional studio space, but would need to be booked well in advanced due to high demand. Having studio space will allow us to learn in a environment that has ample room, proper flooring and mirrors. In order to cover the studio rental fees, there would be an increase in lesson price for that day (prices vary).

* Minimum lesson time if studio space is rented: 60 mins

*** TRAVEL EQUIPMENT ***

I provide music and portable speakers. I am happy to take music requests as well !!

*** SPECIALTIES ***

Jazz, Commercial Jazz, Hip Hop, Jazz Funk, Modern, Contemporary, Lyrical and Ballet.

I am a Certified Pilates instructor, a dancer, and a cellist. Whatever craft you are looking for lessons in, I will work with you to achieve your personal needs and goals.

PILATES:
I am a Certified Pilates instructor through Balanced Body. I can teach Pilates on the mat, reformer, tower, or barrel, but when we are working out of a home, we will be working on a mat, I may incorporate weights, balls, rollers, or straps into our exercises as well. I use Pilates to help you move safely while helping you achieve your maximum core strength, range of motion, and flexibility through low-impact but effective exercises. Despite whatever physical condition you are in, the lifelong benefits of Pilates can be achieved by anyone.
*Pilates lessons are taught from ages 15+*

DANCE:
I have 20+ years dance experience which includes teaching and choreography. Included in my repertoire are the styles of jazz, tap, ballet, modern, hip-hop, contemporary, musical theatre, chacha, salesa, rhumba, foxtrot, waltz, and swing.
I will help you with warming up the body and take you through some stretching. Throughout our lessons, we will work on the fundamentals, rhythm, and musicality. We'll incorporate all of these into various technique exercises and choreography.

CELLO:
I have 15+ years experience playing the cello. I have played in various orchestras, small ensembles, wedding groups, and have done some solo work. I teach beginners lessons for those just starting out. We'll work on scales, rhythm, intonation, and build technique as we complete exercises and songs.
