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

I also teach acting and dance.
I trained as a classical vocalist, and have been training since I was 16. Even though this is not my professional aspiration, I do use classical as the foundation of vocal technique. I perform as a jazz vocalist and in musical theatre, so I teach these styles as well.
New York native. Bachelor's Degree in Theater from Towson University. Upright Citizens Brigade NYC graduate. 20 years dance training, 5 years professional teaching experience. Danced with various choreographers from So You Think You Can Dance such as Mia Michaels, Courtney Galiano, Shane Sparks, Brian Friedman, and Laurieann Gibson just to name a few! Has been a featured dancer/choreographer in a number of live stage projects, music videos and films.
Lessons will be full of laughter, high energy and motivation. Being positive is extremely important and the word "can't" is not allowed! It does not matter if you have never taken a dance class before, or are working to be a professional. I treat each student's individual goals with respect, and encouragement. I take the diverse and extensive training/experience I have, and apply it to my student's needs:)
I am able to bring out the best in my students with laughter, motivation and positive re-enforcement. My students accomplish the goals they set! You miss 100% of the chances you don't take.

*** 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.
