LeAnna S. Los Angeles, CA

About LeAnna

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 ...

I am a composer and LeAnna has performed some of my vocal music. Her last performances of my work was a soprano duet at two very large grand ballroom. Both times people rose to their feet and a number of people were moved to tears. It was a great success!

LeAnna has a very beautiful, pure tone in her singing.

LeAnna is definitely a good teacher to start with!

I have taken singing class with LeAnna for about two months and it was definitely a positive experience. LeAnna is a good teacher to start with and I've learnt lot from her.

LeAnna is a very easy-going and encouraging instructor. She would try to find something good in me every time and appreaciate it. She would also find something I was doing wrong and point it out directly instead of like it vanish in the appreaciation. So I feel energetic and know what to improve at the same time. Moreover, LeAnna's teaching environment is quite comfortable. It is a clean, tidy, and quiet room. I wouldn't feel nervous there. And, there is plenty space where I could move within and sing quite comfortable.

An an instructor, LeAnna has good exercises which would build my technique little by little. She would offer a group of exercises for a specific training area and they are not difficult and seem easy to do. I would not feel practicing those exercises sucking too much of my energy. But, when I came back to sing, I would feel that without noticing, I could done what I couldn't done before, which was pretty amazing.

LeAnna is also reliable and knowledgeable of the industry. She is not only an instructor but also the singer/dancer/actor who do shows. She would tell me how this industry is like, what and how to prepare for the audition, and what details I should focus on (i.e. Don't change schedule after you have been confirmed with the stage manager) and what aspect I don't have to worry (i.e. I could go to another audition if you are wating for another result; just tell them you are waiting.) This helped me a lot to know what the custom is like in this area.

I am so thankful to have found Marcus as my bass instructor; he is the exact type of teacher I was looking for. His training and love for music were evident upon first meeting him. I have learned so much in the short time I have been taking lessons. He is a very patient and passionate teacher.

All around wonderful teacher

Marcus is quite the gifted teacher. By far the best I've had the pleasure to aspire under. He is very easy to understand, and doesn't overwhelm you, taking time on the little things (the most important). He creates an atmosphere that is encouraging to learn in. We all know those teachers that create a stressful environment that inhibits progressive learning, as well as frustration in yourself. Marcus is certainly the opposite. He is also quite easy to communicate with--Creating lesson plans, setting goals, etc... In summation, a professional and a friend I would recommend to anyone and everyone.

I'm a 55 yr old female that hasn't taken voice lessons in the last 20+ years. From that time until recently I would just do karaoke off and on. I started taking lessons with Tanisha about seven months ago. She is the absolute best thing that has ever happened to my voice. Initially I just wanted to learn how to use my "alto" voice more effectively. I avoided singing soprano songs because it was very uncomfortable and it didn't sound right to me. But to my surprise Tanisha convinced me that I am in deed a first soprano. She started working with me on my singing with much attention on my upper range. Thanks to Tanisha, for the first time in my life I have started feeling like a real singer! She has truly taken me places vocally that I could have only dreamed of going. Even when I sing lower it sounds tons better. I practice consistently because I'm so excited about all of the progress I have made in just a seven month period. And I am just blown away that I have those high notes now! When it comes to the voice Tanisha is definitely a miracle worker! On top of that she has this bubbly personality and from the day that I met her I felt like I've been knowing her for years. She's like a new best friend!

For the past 6 months I have taken voice lessons with Tanisha. She has a very warm personality that makes you feel instantly comfortable and at ease. She is passionate about teaching and also tailors the lessons to who you are as an individual so that she can help to extract the very best out of you as a student. She is encouraging and never judgmental and meets you right where you are at. Most of all, she has abounding patience. I have seen an overall improvement in my vocal ability and can now sing in a range that I thought was impossible for me.

Tanisha is the perfect coach and teacher. She provides both services at such a high level, I definitely would not be where I am today without her guidance.

through the few short weeks I have worked with her, I have improved in my live performances as well as my mental aspects of my singing. the homework she gave during the week has literally changed my confidence and performance. I have never had so many compliments after a concert. It is both uplifting and affirming the hard work I've put into my vocals!! I only see a bright future ahead with Tanisha and myself.

Joseph R. has 5 years of experience teaching students elementary, middle school-aged children and adults on to how to play keyboard, guitar, flute and saxophone while sharing his learning experience with them as a self-taught saxophone and flute player and his more conventional education on piano and guitar.

Since then, he has been exposed to classical and symphonic repertoire. During high school, he joined the marching band ...

I have taken private lessons with multiple instructors throughout my life. Adrianne has by far been the best instructor I ever had. She was very patient and had very creative and effective approaches to explaining difficult techniques.
She helped me improve a lot in a short period of time and pointed out many mistakes and bad habits that none of my other teachers had ever noticed.
She is great!

I started taken violin lessons with Adrianne as a refresher and a supplement to my chamber ensemble class. Having not really taken one-on-one lessons in a long time, there were a few bad habits that I formed that Adrianne was easily able to notice and give helpful advice. She was always a patient and very attentive listener. Almost immediately I could tell there was a difference in my sound production and bowing techniques from her practice tips. Definitely worth investing in her lessons!
