Overview

I hold a master's in voice from CSUF and a double bachelor's in piano and voice from USC. With over 12 years of experience as a private voice and piano instructor I have had the privilege of helping many students achieve their musical goals. As a member of MTAC and NATS, I enter many students in Certificate of Merit, Student Evaluation Program, and other festivals. For pianists, I work on songs, scales, theory, ear training and sometimes improvisation. For singers, we work on a breath-based breathing technique and songs that reinforce good singing habits but that are also engaging for the singer. Though my training is mostly in classical music, I do work on other styles with my students.

*** Lesson Details ***
For pianists, I recommend the Premier Alfred piano course, or for older beginners/adults, we use Adult Piano Adventures. I also recommend purchasing a scale/technique book and a theory book.

For singers, please bring a recording device (phone is ok) so that you may later practice the exercises which we learn in the lesson.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a Baldwin grand piano as well as an electronic piano in my studio. For budding pianists, I offer instruction with Piano Marvel software.

I signed up for lessons initially to improve my speaking voice as I spent a lot of time speaking and found I could barely talk at the end of the day. I cannot even begin to explain how much the lessons have helped me. Not only do I have more control of over my voice and feel much more confident, but I've learned to carry a tune. My voice continues to develop and I couldn't be happier. These vocal lessons have also taught me so much about stress and how to be aware of my body as a whole.

Shannon is incredible and soooooo patient! Highly recommended for anyone who is searching for instruction in voice. Even though I don't play piano I've been tempted to begin just because I know how effective of a teacher Shannon is.
