Singing, Music Performance, Music Theory
I love to sing! I know many people say that but I really do. My love for music brought me to teaching and there is honestly nothing better than seeing your student succeed. I have been fortunate enough to get many performance opportunities. There's nothing like feeling that adrenaline rush though when you have a live band backing you up! This passion for performance and for teaching others how to reach their maximum potential is what drives my life.
I graduated from Berklee College of Music with a Bachelor's in Music Education and I am currently earning my Master's in Music Education at Azusa Pacific University. I have been singing since I was 5, had 2 years of classical training, followed by 5 years of commercial music training and performances and I've also auditioned for X Factor. I have worked with students of all ages and abilities including students who are over 65! It's never too late to have some fun and improve your singing.
I welcome the opportunity to help you on your musical journey, whether you're just starting out, want to fine tune (no pun intended) your skills, or would like to refresh your voice. I love sharing my passion for performance with others and I hope to encourage and inspire my students to share that passion.

While most 5 year olds were singing along to silly songs, I was entranced by the tribal drumming in the Michael Jackson's "Will you be there". When most Junior High student were listening to, well, whatever made them "cool", I was thinking of what John Lennon meant in his lyrics for "Strawberry Fields Forever." I have always had a deep passion for music that goes beyond the surface. I connect with the very soul of music.
Writing my first song at the age of 7, the creative fire began to use music to express what no other form of communication could. Struggling with the limitations of my vocal abilities at the age of 16, I decided to intensify my study of the voice, taking hundreds of private lessons in such techniques as Bel Canto Vocal Technique, Speech Level Singing(TM), Progressive Vocal Techniques(TM), and others, as well as reading dozens of books and hundreds of research articles on the mechanisms of the voice. While attending (and eventually graduating from) San Diego State University with a B.A in Music, I played hundreds of live shows, most of them coming from a residency in the heart of the historic Gaslamp District of San Diego, honing my skills as a vocalist, pianist, and guitarist. On the other side of the sound board, as an engineer, I have had the opportunity to work with such greats as Jefferson Starship, Hiromi Uehara, Dave Mason among others at one of San Diego's premier live venue "Anthology."
Since starting my love for composition at 7, I continues to write and record, not only singing, but playing guitar, bass guitar, piano/keys, drums, mandolin, and harmonica, as well as producing and engineering, and mixing the session himself. I am an actively gigging musician on Vocals, Piano, Guitar and Bass.

Erica, professionally known as Erica Piccininni, is a singer/actress from the original Broadway cast of the 2006 Tony award winning "Jersey Boys". She recently relocated to Los Angeles to pursue film and television, and has been featured in over a dozen national commercials, including a currently airing national Budweiser spot. She has performed as a singer in New York and around the country for nearly ten years, and was classically trained at New York University where she recieved her bachelor of music in Vocal Performance/music theatre in 2001. Erica also originated the lead role of "Liz" in "Palm Beach:the Screwball Musical" at its national premiere at the highly acclaimed La Jolla Playhouse under director Des McAnuff, dir. of "Jersey Boys" as well as the upcoming broadway revival of "Guys and Dolls". She understands that passion for singing that you have, or that your kid has, and wants to get you where you need to be to succeed in a college program audition or in the real world! She has been studying voice for nearly 15 years, and understands the neccessity of beginning singers with solid, healthy habits at a very young age, so you have your voice ALL your life, even when belting your heart out. Most importantly, she knows that it is the combination of technique AND expression that builds truly unique young performers...and every kid is one of them, because there is no other YOU on the planet :). In other words, she does not stifle expression/acting with stiff technique, but offers the perfect balance of healthy vocal technique and connection to your performance. This is the ONLY way to work your way to success: by letting you shine through. If you or your kid's goal is not a career in singing but just to explore your potential as a beginning singer, Erica's style is patient and fun!

Originally from Wisconsin, I was a music student at UW LaCrosse before coming to LA to attend Musician's Institute in Hollywood,(GIT) where I graduated with honors and was awarded a USA Custom Ibanez guitar. I remained in LA working in numerous bands spanning a wide variety of musical styles including blues, rock, country, surf, and even Persian music! With "The California Girls", an all female surf band, I opened for "The Beach Boys" , "The Safaris", "Jan and Dean", "Steppin Wolf"; toured the US playing theaters, fairs, casinos; and played overseas for the troops in Bosnia, Kosovo, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Iraq, Afghanistan, Norway, Germany, the Pacific Islands, and Diego Garcia. Most recently I was a member of the Greg London band, an impressionist with whom I performed in Leicester Square in the West End of London, at Harrah's Reno and the Las Vegas Hilton for extended runs. I fill in with "ThundHerStruck", an all female AC/DC tribute band and recently did a tour to Afghanistan with them. I also have a band called "Sierra Highway" that performs in the Antelope Valley.
I have studied vocal technique extensively with Robert Edwards, renown vocal coach to the stars (Christina Aguilera, Bonnie Raitt, Sheryl Crow ) and learned to teach his method which is similar to the famous "Seth Riggs" method. I have played piano since early childhood.
I look forward to helping you achieve your musical goals and tailoring your lessons specifically to your needs!

I believe that everyone can sing, it is just a matter of learning how to use your unique instrument. From a very young age I was sharing my love of the arts with others as a performer. I grew up with an immense appreciation for all forms of art and found music to be the ideal way to express myself. My extensive education and performance experience has allowed me to cultivate my skills and knowledge so that I can best support each student on their own unique journey of cultivating their authentic singing voice. As a teacher I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to support students both in my studio and through online lessons, providing the positive and supportive guidance and experiences they need in order to cultivate their own musical gifts.
