About Me

I fully enjoy teaching music and theater to others and spreading the art of performance, reaching out to all generations. I believe in customizing every lesson to be unique for my students in a way that will serve their individual needs. I teach with patience and encouragement and believe that students prosper and improve much more from a positive experience. My lessons are intended to be fun and influential in a positive light that can lead to a rewarding career, hobby, or just for personal enjoyment!

Every since I was a little girl, I have been devoted to the arts. When I began college, I knew that music was my path. As a music major I developed a deeper understanding of music theory, piano, voice, and theater. I received my A.A. in Music at College of the Desert and my Bachelor of Music degree at the University of Redlands- which I attended on a music scholarship. I have played leading roles in several operas and musicals in Southern California, including Gianni Schicchi, Die Fledermaus, La Boheme (DTL nominee), The Impresario, The Grand Duke, Patience (DTL award), Cosi fan tutte, Little Women the Musical, Seussical the Musical, and many more. I have also appeared in several concerts, opera scenes, competitions (winning music scholarships and theater awards), and worked as a singer at churches, restaurants, and in pop bands. I continue to perform and study music because performing is a part of who I am and I could never live without it.

With this experience under my belt, I feel a desire to pass on my knowledge to students. I carry a strong passion to help people develop their abilities and make them their own. I truly believe that if someone wants something out of life then they WILL achieve it with dedication, perseverance, confidence, and by having FUN doing it!

*** Lesson Details ***
I begin each voice and acting lesson with a warm-up to prepare the student for their lesson. Next, we do a series of exercises specially designed to help each individual develop their skill in a way that best fits them. We then work on a piece of their choice for the remainder of the lesson, perfecting their technique and helping them become performance ready. I teach with patience and fun because I feel that this is the key to achieving goals and inspiring a good habit of practice.

If you do not already have a song, sheet music, or monologue (acting students) to bring in I can help you choose one during your first lesson. I also require that my students keep a practice journal to record their daily practice sessions. If possible, please bring a recording device of some sort so you can record your lessons. It is a HUGE help to be able to listen back on your lessons and to use them in your daily practice! No experience is necessary, that is what I'm here for!

*** Lesson Details ***
I maintain a positive and cheerful attitude in my studio, which makes it easy for the student to learn and be successful without tension. I have a 12 step approach to good singing, based upon solid vocal technique. I use Sight Singing and Music Theory books, as well as flash cards for younger students. In this way even beginners can learn the fundamentals of music through singing. After a few months of lessons a singer who is practicing will begin to feel more freedom in the voice, in strength as well as in range. I have studios in both Long Beach and Dan Point, California.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Home-lessons will be taught in her large living room with a baby grand with a mirror across from the piano

*** Specialties ***
I emphasize healthy singing and good production of tone in all genres, including pop, musical theater, and classical. I also introduce and, or further the students knowledge of music theory and sight reading of music.

Stephanie R. Los Angeles, CA

Subjects Taught

Acting, Broadway Singing, Opera Voice, Singing, Speaking Voice

About Me

Stephanie has been singing and studying voice since she was a child, over 20 years! She holds a BFA from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. Stephanie has been lucky enough to study with some of the top teachers in the country and brings the experience she has gained directly to you!Stephanie is proud to share her student's vast array of musical successes.  From being cast on GLEE to being accepted into prestigous performing arts academies to conquering the Karaoke scene Stephanie's student's continue to motivate and inspire her!

*** Lesson Details ***
Music brings me immense joy, especially singing and I want the same thing for you!
We start each lesson with proper breathing technique, the cornerstone of all vocals. We move on to vocal exercises to condition the voice. Then we work on the songs that you are eager to sing!

I will use a piano when doing vocal warm ups and conditioning exercises. When working on songs I like to procure a recorded accompaniment. This frees me up to concentrate on listening to you sing, rather than my own playing. Students that play other instruments and accompany themselves when performing (such as a guitar) are encouraged to bring that instrument to their lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio has piano, area for parents to wait

*** Specialties ***
I believe that the speaking voice and singing voice are non-exclusive and spend time working with breath control, proper breathing techniques and voice support for both spoken and singing voice lessons.

Laura S. Irvine, CA

Subjects Taught

Broadway Singing, Music Performance, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing, Speaking Voice

About Me

Hello! I am a recent graduate from Luther College with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education with an Endorsement in Music. I am also a graduate of the Orange County High School of the Arts (OCHSA) in the Music and Theatre Conservatory. I have been involved in a variety of Musicals including Fiddler on the Roof (Fruma-Sarah) and West Side Story (Maria). I have also been involved in several Operas including Kurt Weill’s Street Scene, and Mozart’s Cosi Fan Tutte as well as Luther College’s prestigious Nordic Choir. Through the rigorous conservatory program at OCHSA, I have had training in all different musical styles including Jazz, Pop, Rock and Roll, Classical, Opera, Choral Singing, and Theatrical Broadway Singing. I have had the opportunity to work under the direction of several Broadway stars including Susan Egan and Karen Culliver. My multiple years of both private piano and vocal lessons for many years have shaped the development of my own teaching.
As a private music instructor, my approach is to set goals for students to enable them to strengthen their techniques and develop their talent as performers and musicians. Whether you are a beginner or experienced, I look forward to working together on the growth of your musicianship.

*** Lesson Details ***
It is my belief that all learners thrive in a positive and warm environment. The balance between having fun and reaching goals to be better musicians is something I offer when you take a lesson with me. My teaching style is individually based. This means that I adapt my teaching based on the styles and levels of learning of my students. Whether you have a passion for Opera, Piano, Musical Theatre, or Jazz, we will work together to have fun and achieve great sounds!
During my lessons I focus half of the time on technique and half of the time on performance. This balance has proved effective for my students, as it has helped with their intonation, expression, and breath control.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room w/ piano and seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I require students to have a piano (MUST) and a cd player (optional). I may require students to purchase music books from local stores or online.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Musical Theater singing, Classical Singing, and Belt Singing. I also give coaching in acting monologues and speaking dialects. I also have experience in teaching Music Theory.
