Sarah G.

Santa Fe Springs, CA

I can do in home lessons for beginning ballet and modern dance.

About Sarah

Sarah was born and raised in Los Angeles and has been involved in music and theater since a young age. She spent many of her early years performing in both school and church choirs, and was heavily involved in both theater and dance throughout high school. Sarah has played roles such as "Mrs MacAfee " in Bye Bye Birdie, "Nancy" in Oliver, and "Golde" in Fiddler on the Roof, as well as doing "extra word" for Zondervan, and Billy Gram films. She holds a B.A. in Voice, and an M.A. in Christian Apologetics from Biola University. While at Biola, Sarah performed with the Biola University Chorale
for 5 years performing such works as, Mozart requiem, and Carmina Baurana. She has training in both classical and musical theater voice, and has been working with children and teens for the past 10 years.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that classical technique provides a solid foundation for every singer. Within the first 3months my students will understand the basics of posture, breathing, tone placement, support, diction, and phrasing.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a keyboard, and some sheet music. I would prefer the student to have a piano, and sheet music

*** Specialties ***
I have a B.A. in Classical Voice, and have taken 1 semester of pop voice

Sarah is very patient with my daughter. She tailors the class to her personality. She gets her to do the class in a fun way. She makes the class enjoyable but still focuses on her growth. She pushes Alexa enough to keep her going. She motivates her to learn. My daughter looks forward to her lessons. Recommend!

About LeAnna

Hello, welcome to my profile and thank you for taking the time to check it out. I am happy to introduce myself to you and share that teaching the performing arts is one of the greatest joys of my life.

I am a performing artist and teacher in Los Angeles, teaching a variety of classes from music, dance and theatre. I graduated from San Francisco State University in 2009 where I received a BA in Classical Music, a BA in Dance with a focus in choreography, and a minor in Multi-Cultural Theatre. I have such a strong, well-rounded background in many styles because I value creative explorati
on.
As a vocalist, I studied classical voice since I was 16 years old, trained at SFSU and La Universidad de Catolica in Santiago, Chile and consider that as strong foundation, but always explored other styles. I loved singing with the SFSU Gospel Choir and the SFSU Afro-Cuban Jazz Ensemble, playing a mix of Latin folkloric music, Salsa and jazz. Currently I am focused on musical theatre and my own compositions. As a pianist, I began playing piano when I was 7 years old and basically self taught. I received more formal training at SFSU and in music education classes, yet I credit my skills more to my own exploration. I approach my lessons with more creativity and patience, allowing students to discover how they best learn music. I consider the same with trombone. I feel in love with it one day hearing Dixieland jazz when I was 16 and haven’t stopped playing since.

I have been teaching private and group piano, trombone, voice, theatre and dance lessons for the past 8 years. I have taught from my private home studio, private music studios, community centers and public and private schools. 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 supervised and designed music, dance and musical theatre programs for children K-8th.

*** Lesson Details ***
Considering taking lessons with me? Great!

I am very insightful, sensitive, flexible, patient and focused. I like to have fun with lessons and I laugh a lot. Joy is key and I enjoy seeing my students learn and improve. With my training as a musician, I always make sure that there is good technique and good practice habits. I wouldn't consider myself totally laid back because I do expect students to practice, (otherwise, how do you expect to get better?) yet my expectations depend on the personal goals and level of the students. I am here to teach you what YOU want to learn and tailor my lessons to that. This includes teaching whatever style you want to learn, be it pop, classical, musical theatre or R&B. It's all good to me.
As for the lessons, I start with fundamental techniques that are then later applied to songs. My intention is to assist students in reaching their personal music goals, which could range from wanting to feel good about their voice to preparing for a talent show or professional audition. I always encourage students to learn how to read music and basic theory as well performance techniques.

LeAnna is an amazing teacher and she has helped me improve very much in only a few sessions. She is helping me prepare for a specific auditon and was able to help me pick a beautiful song to sing. LeAnna is very nice and easy to work with. She not only explains proper singing technique, but also how to achieve proper technique physically.

Jaslyn G.

Carson, CA

I have been dancing since I was in high school, so a total of 8 years. There is a lot that can be mastered in 8 years than one thinks. I currently still am a dancer today. I dance for a dance company and have danced for a competitive company called C8 here in Los Angeles. I am a dance major here at Cal State Dominguez Hills who is heavily involved in the dance program. I currently teach kids in middle school. I love teaching Hip Hip, Jazz, Ballet, and locking. Don't be shy, LETS DANCE!!

About Jaslyn

My name is Jaslyn. I am currently still in college I take about 20 plus units a semester. I know its a lot. However, it is and will be worth the time spent. I am a double major student in my third year. I double major in Sociology and Dance. I have received a scholarship in dance to further help me and my expenses for dance. I am involved with a dance company here at my campus and I also perform twice a year in the college concert for the dance program. Sociology is still a work in progress. I take classes to fulfill my major requirements to keep me on track. I also do volunteer work for a stu
dent at my previous high school. I am currently teaching her a solo choreographed by myself. She will be performing this piece in May. For a living, I teach at a Middle school called Walnut Park as a dance instructor. I prepare them for parades, and competitions. I also love to write poetry, skate, do fitness, yoga, flexibility training and just being outdoors.
