I have been teaching and singing professionally for over 25 years. In the lesson, I always start with warm-up vocalizing. Then, we work on songs, depending on the student and type of voice; and always including music theory, the foundation. Each student is unique; so I customize the lessons and repertoire to suit each student. We work on improving tone and expanding range as well as song interpretation, especially if singing in Italian, German, Spanish or French.

About Amber
I am an experienced, enthusiastic music instructor, who started playing piano around 8 years of age and participated in many musical activities. I received my Bachelor of Music Education from the University of Massachusetts, majoring in Music Education (voice and piano). I have appeared around the world as a soloist singing jazz and pop, including the Blue Note, NYC, and appeared as a guest soloist at the 2000 Southern California Summer Special Olympics. I also participated in ensemble groups such as the Masterworks Chorale in NYC, and the Verdi Opera Chorus of Southern California; and currently I volunteer at the Senior Center leading/accompanying the Sing-Alongs.

Inspired by my love of music, I have been teaching piano and voice for over 25 years from NY to LA and now Orange County. In conjunction with my teaching skills, I have
excellent communication skills, patience and enthusiasm, and work well with children and all ages. I feel that music is an important part of education, and it aids in the development of cognitive and motor skills. And most of all, it is fun and rewarding, and a skill to last a lifetime!

Upon our first meeting, the instructor gave my 12 year old daughter several breathing and vocalizing exercises to do at home for additional practice. Amber also quickly identified my daughter's vocal range and guided her on how to utilize various techniques to bring out her singing voice properly, patiently explaining the why's and how's behind each technique. Amber is also able to provide criticism/correction in a warm and positive way that the student is not left feeling embarrassed nor discouraged. We are looking forward to more lessons with Ms. Amber!

Classical and opera singing represents the Olympics of vocal artistry. The road to becoming a proficient classical singer lengthens as singers realize how much they have yet to learn. But, for those for whom classical singing is the be-all, end-all, there is no turning back. Whether you want to sing O mio babbino caro or Nessun dorma as a career option, or for fun, good foundation training is necessary.

Technical training and repertoire development.

I have trained singers for 40 years. Many of my singers perform semi-professionally and professionally in various settings and attend prestigious university music programs, including Juilliard.

About Patricia
Whether your goal is to train for personal enjoyment or a professional career I'll help you achieve that goal. My voice students sing all styles of music. Piano students learn to play the music you want to play.

I teach private voice for The Young Americans College of Performing Arts. I've also taught for the Orange County School of the Arts (OCSA).

I currently sing jazz and selections from the Great American Songbook at local clubs and venues. In the classical realm, I performed professionally with Los Angeles Music Center Opera Association, with Opera Pacific and with the Los Angeles Master Chorale. I'm a San Mateo County Vocal Competition prize winner, and former staff soloist for the televised Crystal Cathedral Hour of Power Choir, and I've recorded at the historic Capital Records studios in Hollywood.

I honed my skills with
Natalie Limonick (formerly general director of the USC Opera Program, director of the UCLA Opera Workshop and Opera Guild of Southern California President), Esther Andreas (Metropolitan Opera), Naomi Farr (New York City Opera), Nina Hinson (San Francisco Opera), Marion Cooper, Dietrich Erbelding, Charles Ross Perlee (conductor, San Francisco Opera and Bremen Opera), and several other respected teachers and coaches.

I have an Emmy® for writing, I'm a former TV Arts & Entertainment news host and producer, NPR radio station affiliate jazz show host, and a former columnist for The Los Angeles Daily News. I'm a working spoken voice-over talent and an active member of SAG-AFTRA and AGMA.

Classical singing can be difficult, if you don't have the right tools. You will learn how to sing open and free, in a safe environment. We will work on vocal production, and ensure there is no tension or damaging muscular issues that can cause injury.

About Judi
Hi everyone! I've been teaching in a variety of areas for many years in many different respects. I teach voice lessons, and audition coaching. I've been doing that for a long time! During my "day-job" years, I was an analyst, and I'm especially skilled with Microsoft Excel. And I LOVE teaching people how to make magic on that program. I have done projects that included creating databases, training departments on the use of said databases, taught entire departments at Jet Propulsion Laboratory how to migrate to Microsoft Outlook from (the archaic) Eudora.

My musical talents run parallel with my affinity for numbers. In my life, it has manifested in music composition, arranging, and musical direction. And, of course, PERFORMANCE! I've performed in and around the Los Angeles area for many years. I own a professional Christmas Caroling co
mpany that I direct and sing in as well. So I'm a performer, and a small business owner! So come see what I can offer!

Montebello, CA

View Full Profile

Having graduated from UCLA in Music, I have performed in several operas and have sung with professional choirs. I believe that singing should be easy and be used in a means to express your emotions and to share your story.

About Sarabeth
Hello fellow singers! My goal is to help you refine your own unique instrument and help you to express a story and art through the voice!

I grew up taking piano lessons and singing in my church and school choir. I always had a love for all classical music and soon enough fell in love with opera! I begin taking classical voice lessons at the age of 15 and soon realized that my heart and soul belonged to opera and had to continue my studies a lot more in depth.

I went to UCLA where I received my Bachelor of Arts with my emphasis in Opera Performance. Throughout the years spent at UCLA, I not only continued to sing with choral groups, but also performed in every opera. I sang one of the principles roles in Ravel's L'enfant et les sortilèges, and sang one of the principles roles in many opera scenes such as Dorabella from Così fan tutt
e, Mercedes in Carmen, Second Lady in The Magic Flute, Nerone in L'incorazione di Poppea.

Since I graduated college I have collaborated with nationally known directors, conductors, and voice teachers such as Peter Kazaras, James Darrah, Bruce Stasyna, Juliana Gondek, and Enrique Toral. I have sang in Master Classes given by Susan Graham and Bradley Moore. I have performed roles with Astoria Music Festival, Miami Music Festival, Opera NEO, and San Diego Opera.

As a teacher my job is to use my knowledge and experience to help my students learn to sing with as much ease as possible, while refining the instrument for the classical repertoire. I not only focus on technique, but also diction and artistry, because as singers we are story tellers.

I highly recommend Sarabeth to anyone interested in singing, whether you have already had some background in voice or you are just starting out.

Sarabeth is a truly amazing voice teacher!!! She led me step by step through many vocal exercises and taught me many a great classical song! Her patience and encouragement were ever present at each lesson as I stumbled through the classical songs which were written in other languages.

I have SMA type 1-2, a severely debilitating and progressive disease, and my lung capacity was 24% of normal when Sarabeth started teaching me. Under her guidance, I was able to increase my lung capacity to 28%! Believe me when I say that this is not supposed to happen to people with SMA. In general our lung capacities continue to decrease as the disease progresses until we need to be placed under mechanical ventilation. The most common mode of death for people with SMA is respiratory failure.

I am deeply saddened that Sarabeth is moving away to Los Angeles and will no longer be able to be my singing teacher, but wishing her the best of luck there!!! I will always remember her as the incredibly wonderful teacher she is!

As a trained opera singer with a Masters Degree from The University Of Michigan in voice and teaching, I am comfortable teaching beginning to advanced singers. My approach is to work individually with each student on healthy and correct singing techniques. I work with ages 6 and up, and specialize in musical theater, opera, acting, and audition prep. I have had young singers who want to learn more about singing and prepare for local auditions. I have also had people in their mid 30's who simply want to be able to sing while playing the guitar. Regardless of the situation, I have been able to work with and make great improvements with my students.

I graduated with a Master's of Music at the University of Michigan, and absolutely love what I do! I have had years of training, and love to help train and coach a healthy singing technique.

About Christopher
Hello! I am a professional opera singer with a master's degree from The University of Michigan, and a bachelor's degree from Butler University. I currently live in Laguna Beach CA, and have a studio of 7 students. As a classically trained singer and pedagogue, and have been teaching and performing for over 7 years. I have experience ranging from Musical Theater, to Opera, and have performed in several countries in Europe as well as across the United States.

Recently I was brought on to perform and teach at The Aspen Music Festival, which is a prestigious summer festival that occurs every summer. I had a range of students with varying backgrounds and singing levels, and successfully taught and catered to their needs and abilities.

My philosophy is old fashioned in the sense of creating a foundation for my singing students. I foc
us on the basics of posture, breath, relaxation of muscles, and vowels. I generally see improvement within the first few lessons which has been a testimate to the hard work of my students, and how I was trained to teach beginning to advanced singers.

With my students I try to keep lessons as fun and engaging as possible, while also being very adamant about consistency and improvement with exercises and repertoire. In addition, I always try and keep in contact with my students about their process with practicing during the week. Singing can be different day-to-day so I try and answer any questions or worries my students have when they are practicing during the week.

Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions you may have!
Looking forward to working with you!
