Hi! My name is LeAnna and I am a performing artist and teacher in the San Francisco bay area. 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 (some of the best times of my life!). Studying music at SFSU was very satisfying. 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 currently 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. :)

Music has been a part of my life since I was 5 years old, when my father would record my brother and I singing. I always loved singing and learned many of my favorite songs as a child.
I started playing the trumpet in the 4th grade, which has led me all the way to receiving my degrees in Trumpet Performance and Music Education! I was lucky enough to attend one of the nation's top music schools, The Peabody Institute, and I now work toward my Master's degree at California State University, Long Beach. I have enjoyed performing in everything from big-band-lead to principal trumpet in the orchestra, leading brass quintets and brass ensembles, and much more! The trumpet has been a huge passion for as long as I can remember now!
While I was learning songs as a child, I decided I wanted to join a band! Now here we are 10 years later and I've have the fortune of performing as a lead singer in bands across the country, and let me tell you there is no bigger thrill than getting in-front of a crowd full of cheering fans, performing music you love.
I've also been playing the guitar for just under 10 years. Playing the guitar has been both a complete joy, but also a fantastic learning experience. I have been learning songs of my favorite artists and even written my own material,and having the opportunity to immerse myself in my favorite music and create music of my own has taught me so much more about music and being a musician. I hope to impart this experience onto all of my students.
Whether it's trumpet, voice, or guitar, I love all things music and my #1 objective is to for my students to learn how it feels to experience what music REALLY has to offer, so to you reading this, let's make some noise!

Fluent on many instruments and in a wide variety of genres I have served on the music staffs at various drum corps and high school marching band programs around the state including Blue Devils "B", Sacramento Mandarins, Amador Valley HS, as well as teaching privately for several years.
