Classical voice lessons are for students who prefer to sing in a choir or plan to sing classical repertoire (art song, opera). These lessons are ideal for students entering a college music program. Emphasis is placed on technique and beauty in singing. We strive to strengthen the student's natural voice in a healthy way.

An anthology of classical songs is assigned at the first lesson. Some students choose to add additional styles of music into these lessons.

About Stacey
During the past 17 years, Stacey has worked with students ranging from age 5 to 75 teaching classical, musical theater, Christian, and pop music. She accepts students of all ages, styles, and levels. Her students learn through vocal exercises, ear training, song, and performance techniques. Students also learn how to keep their voices healthy and are encouraged to participate in performing venues outside of lessons.

After teaching in New York and Ohio, Stacey held a teaching position at American River College and operated her private voice studio in Sacramento, California for 6 years. She recently relocated to San Diego where she maintains her private voice studio. Stacey has a Master of Music in Vocal Performance/Pedagogy from Ohio University, and a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from SUNY Fredonia. Most recently, she c
ompleted the Summer Vocology Institute where she worked with several of the most knowledgeable researchers and therapists in the field of voice and completed additional Speech Pathology-related courses at the University of Pittsburgh. During graduate school, she taught as a graduate assistant and was hired after graduation as a Visiting Lecturer at Ohio University. Stacey also taught as the Affiliate Voice Instructor for the Athens Community School of Music and Voice Instructor at Studio 1 in Lancaster, Ohio.

A classically trained musician, Stacey performed locally in Sacramento as a soloist and sang first soprano with the Sacramento Master Singers. Although her love is art song, Stacey performed in both musical theater and opera productions during high school, undergraduate, and graduate school. Her roles include Despina from Mozart'€™s 'Cosi fan tutte' and Nancy in Britten'€™s 'Albert Herring'. She performed 3 degree recitals and was a 1998-99 Concerto Competition Winner at SUNY Fredonia.

*** Lesson Details ***
I find it very important for my students to be comfortable and to enjoy their lessons. Our first lesson will include getting to know your comfort level and all the details of your voice. We will sing a lot of vocal exercises, find out what you already know, and set basic goals. For a normal lesson, I always start with vocal exercises and progress into our song literature.

I am an energetic instructor and love what I do. Everything I teach is based on solid, healthy vocal technique. I apply this classical technique to all styles of singing from musical theater to pop and of course classical. Sometimes I will assign you a song, but usually I give you a choice between 2 or 3. I always encourage you to bring in your own song choices as options!

Students always ask how quickly they will progress. The answer is...it's completely individual. If you strive for a reasonable goal and practice efficiently generally you will progress nicely.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical and musical theater voice, and use the basic efficient healthy technique used in these styles to work with students who prefer to sing popular styles. I spend a lot of time on a solid foundation in breathing and learning to sing in a healthy way.

Stacey has been training my daughter for over 6 years! It's hard to believe these lessons are coming to an end, but not because Stacey isn't amazing, but because my daughter is graduating and moving away! I just want to thank Stacey for helping my daughter at the age of 11 how to sing through being terrified! She has come a long way and she has enjoyed all her time with Miss Stacey! I have recommended Stacey and will continue to recommend her not just for her talent, but because of her patience and her kind heart too!

Stacey is the perfect instructor for my five-year-old girl. She is professional yet fun, and works with my daughter to learn the songs even though she can't yet read words herself. My daughter loves her lessons and looks forward to them each week. I would recommend Stacey to everyone.

When I started singing in junior high, I accompanied myself with the guitar. Then I went on to study voice privately and learned correct Classical and Belle Canto styles of singing. I've studied for many years and continue to sing and learn, using the best techniques of singing Classical as well as every other style of music. Currently I have a student who has gone on to study to be an Opera Singer and she is doing splendidly!

About Susan
My primary focus is teaching the best and most effective Vocal Techniques to students of all ages and backgrounds. I also teach Acoustic Guitar and finger picking. My teaching includes the Orff and Suzuki methods of music for Children. My primary focus is on teaching singing and I have been teaching beginning to advanced Voice, as well as beginning to intermediate acoustic guitar privately for over 25 years. My students perform in recitals at least twice a year. They also participate in local Broadway productions and Musicals for C.Y.T., Coast Kids, Moonlight Theatre, Escondido Center for The Arts, J Company, and Star Theatre Productions. Students also are involved with Classical, Choral, Gospel, Pop and Rock performing. Along with these venues, students perform for talent shows at their schools, sing in bands, and perform locally at thei
r favorite venues. Many of my students have gone on to sing professionally and I currently teach Artists with ongoing careers.

My motto is learn to sing the "Easy, Natural Way". I teach the very best techniques, so vocalizing is not strained or difficult. My main focus is on teaching good "placement" of the sound, using the best ways to secure breath support and control, as well as good stage presence. Dealing with stage fright is always addressed, whether the singer wants to sing just for themselves, or audition for Musical Theatre productions. Styles range from pop to rock and opera.
I teach students of ALL AGES and work with every style or genre of music. Having spearheaded the Music program at the local YMCA has been a special treat in my teaching career!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I teach using a piano for learning vocal exercises and good techniques. I also have an acoustic Guitar that I use to teach my students how to play and learn good finger picking and strumming techniques. Using a computer is always employed, to pull up songs on YouTube, so students can choose what they would like to work on. Karaoke versions are used as well, for further training purposes.

*** Travel Equipment ***
When I teach at a student's home, I bring my Guitar with me, if they're studying this instrument. It is helpful for a student to have a piano or keyboard for me to teach voice, but I do have a keyboard I can bring if none is available. Having a computer close by is very helpful, to get the most out of the lesson as is possible.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in helping people who have created possible "bad habits" in their singing techniques. "Placement" and breathing, or "support", are of key importance. When good techniques are used, just about anyone can learn to sing beautifully. I also work with all ages, having background with Children, as well as teens, middle age, and elderly vocalists. Singing is universal, so every ethnicity is included in my student roster. If someone wants to learn to play the acoustic Guitar, this is always a plus, to accompany ones-self, or to focus on the instrument on it's own. Singing and playing should be "easy" and this is the approach I take in teaching.

Mrs. Krystmas is awesome. My daughter was really intimidated trying to learn to play the flute for 5th grade band. When she started, she could get it to make a sound at all. She talked about "hating band" and how she couldn't wait until the end of the year so she could quit. Mrs. Krystmas turned all of that around in 5 lessons. Now she looks forward to going to both her lessons and band at school. She asked me sign her up for more lessons! Thanks Mrs. Krystmas!

Marianne is a fantastic instructor. She has the most important thing needed in teaching music, in particular beginners, PATIENCE. If you don't have that as a music teacher you are in the wrong field. Before the 1st lesson she asked me a series of questions with regards to my experience with the oboe to help her set up a lesson plan for me which was great. She doesn't treat you like "you're a beginner, here is what you need" (the "Cookie cutter approach"). I highly recommend Marianne as a teacher and look forward to my musical journey on the Oboe with her as my mentor and teacher.

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.

My name is Shavit. I am a musician, composer and singer, graduated from The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in NY with honors.

I started teaching music- voice, solfage, ear-training, piano for beginners and the connection between a song and the singer, when I was 16. I was working in a conservatory and every year I had a group of musicians that I use to teach. They came to class together or alone and we worked on what they needed at the time. A few needed help of how to reach a song and how to connect to it, some of them didn't know how to read music and needed me to work with them on the music background, some of them wanted to work on a song they learned in school. I worked with students in all levels.

My students always told me that I have a lot of patience, that I am very clear with my explanations and that they could tell that I love to teach and share music information.

About Shavit
I am a professional musician, singer, composer and recording artist. I graduated from The New School For Jazz with a Bachelors of Music, specifically voice and composition.

I have been teaching music for the last 11 years and have a lot of experience as a private teacher. I specialize in vocal technique, classical music, vocal jazz, piano for beginners and more.

My voice students can expect to improve week after week in their lessons. Having a teacher that listen to you, understands you and helps you is very important for your personal development. As a music teacher I have always been told that I have a lot of patience, I am very clear with my explanations and that I love to teach and share music information.

Outside of the classroom I enjoy my music career in the last 23 years. I had performed and recorded with diverse musi
c groups on stages, festivals and competitions in Spain, England, The Netherlands, Israel and USA, experiences that showed me the power of music to bring people together.

I had appeared as a soloist at the famous Abu-Gosh Renaissance festival with the "Bat-Kol" choir, conducted by Anat Morahg, and performed and recorded a new arrangement by Roger Waters of Pink Floyd's The Wall. I was also a member of the Naked Voice A Capella ensemble, conducted by Tamir Chason.

Whatever your voice type, whatever your vocal interest, you can succeed in the world of music! I have had a wide range of performance and training experience since the age of seven and I can tell you that if you have the energy and the drive to pursue the vocal arts, you can do wonderful things.

In my lessons I focus on proper vocal technique and musicianship first and foremost. My students will understand the basics of music notation as well as interpretation. Past this, my students will learn appropriate performance presence as well as communication to an audience through vocal music.

I am trained and have extensive performance experience in classical voice, musical theater, opera, choral voice, pop, jazz, acapella specific techniques, as well as instrumental-to-choral music relationships.

If you have a passion to learn vocal music and have an interest in any or many of these categories, I would love to work with you!

Best,
Zach

About Zachary
Hello!

My name is Zachary Krug and I am a vocal and instrumental musician from Murrieta, California. I started both worlds of music at the age of seven and have never looked back! I went to school at the University of Redlands and received my Bachelor's of Music degree in Music Education. After this I was a high school band director and an assistant choral director at a wonderful musical church for two years. Now I am the choir director at one of the wonderful middle schools in the Murrieta Valley Unified School District.

I specialize in adaptations for singers as well as guided practice for building vocal and ear strength. This means that no matter the skill level or abilities of a singer, I am able to guide them to the success of any goal we agree upon through showcasing their strengths and heavily building up their weaknesses.

I h
ave tons of energy and am a huge music nerd of any and every genre of music! If you would like an spunky, challenging, and experienced teacher, I am the guy for you!

About Tzytle
I am originally from Oceanside, California. I received my Bachelors of Music in Vocal Performance from Boston Conservatory and her Masters of Music in Voice and Opera Performance from Northwestern University. During my degree programs, I taught elementary school to college age students in musical theatre, pop and opera singing. As a performer, I specialize in both musical theatre and opera. She has worked with Ohio Light Opera, Utah Festival Opera and Musical Theatre and Lyric Opera San Diego. She has played roles ranging from Reno Sweeney in Anything Goes to Mother Marie in Dialogues of the Carmelites. When she is not singing, Ms. Steinman also loves to dance jazz, ballet, tap and hip hop.

I am known for my presence on stage and acting abilities and was once described as the Lucile Ball of opera. I enjoy sharing her heart and soul with
all around me, on and off stage. I believe that Art is essential to life and a basic need of human existence. While medical doctors help with physical pains, artists are doctors who help revive the souls of the world.

I believe that everyone has their own unique voice and I want to help find that voice. Singing is a beautiful experience that enriches the soul.
