About Sarah
I am always excited to meet and work with dedicated, aspiring singers, regardless of age or level!

As a professional singer I have sung with opera companies and orchestras throughout the world. I continue to pursue my singing career, but I also love teaching lessons so I can pass on my passion to my students! I am currently on the voice faculty at MusA Academy and also maintain a private studio.

I love teaching musicians, whether they are beginners or advanced. One of my greatest joys is watching the student improve and grow in their love for music. For the beginner, I believe it is important to spend time learning to read music and understanding music theory, so this will be a part of our early lessons.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

Singing is a deeply personal experience, therefore each lesson is tailored specifically to the student'
s needs and wants. I specialize in the classical Bel Canto technique and teach this to all my students. This will create a solid technical foundation so then the student is free to explore any genre that interests them. Even though I am an opera singer, I enjoy working with my students on musical theater, pop, jazz, and much more! What is most important is that my students find joy in singing, and I will guide you to do that in a way that is healthy for your voice.

As a teacher, I think it is valuable to develop the complete musician, not only the voice. In lessons, we will also discuss music theory, diction, interpretation, phrasing, music history, etc.

A lesson might include:
- exercises that develop skills in posture, breathing, vocal support, tone production and resonance
- learning songs and choosing audition repertoire that best suits your voice and showcases your unique talent
- the design of a warm-up routine to use before a performance
- special attention targeting trouble spots in music, issues with vocal range or transitions between vocal registers
- coaching in diction (English, Italian, French, German, Latin), articulation, and projection
- music reading skills and ear training
- audition preparation and help learning music
- other areas of focus inspired by the singer’s strengths and challenges

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a portable electric keyboard, but it would be best if the student had a piano/keyboard so they can practice at home.

*** Specialties ***
I am a graduate of the Manhattan School of Music with a degree in Vocal Performance.
I am classically trained in voice, violin, flute and piano. I began the Suzuki method on the violin at age 3. I am a professional opera and choral singer, but also have experience in musical theater.

Music has been my passion since I was a child. I started to take classical guitar lessons at age 11 and started to play electric guitar when I was 15. I enjoy to play classical songs by Francisco Tarrega, and Andrea Segovia, to blues by B.B. King and Eric Clapton, and rock and heavy metal songs like Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, AC/DC, and Iron Maiden and etc. I also studied Music Theory along with the guitar lessons and built up a great basics and fundamentals. The key to become a great musician is to learn the fundamentals really well.

About Chloe
Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile and learn a little more about me!

My love for music began very young with piano lessons at age five. I continued lessons throughout high-school and college, but during that time I also found my love for singing and musical theater. Upon discovering opera I felt like I found my calling and have been studying and performing classical voice ever since. The combination of romance languages and the amazing athletic feat that is operatic singing captivated me from the very first moment I saw it and I’ve been hooked ever since.

I hold a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from San Jose State University, and since graduating I have performed with Opera San Jose, Symphony Silicon Valley, Celestial Opera Company & Independent Opera Company.

Although my main pursuit is clas
sical performance, I absolutely love to teach all styles and see the joy of music grow in my students. I’ve been teaching voice and piano since 2009 (8 years) and with my solid piano, musical theater, and classical background I offer my students the best of both worlds.

Want to learn how to play your favorite pop song? Beethoven’s “Fur Elise”? Maybe you’re a closet Pavarotti fan and have a yearning to hit those stratosphere-high notes, or maybe you just love to sing and want someone’s encouraging ear. No matter what your goal is I will make it my mission to help you attain it!

That's pretty much the gist about me and my teaching, but if you'd like to know what your lesson might look like feel free to ask me! I usually respond within a day.

Progress, not perfection!
Practice, Practice, Practice! (duh!)

Ms. Lee has been teaching me piano and violin for almost a year now. I've gone from a complete beginner to being able to play some of my favorite pieces. She has a really great personality and makes the lessons fun but at the same time really clear. I rarely get confused and don’t feel as frustrated as I did with other teachers!

Ms. Lee is the best instructor ever!!!! When I started taking lessons with her, I was blown away by how much progress we made in one short lesson! She helped me grow so much! She is everything you would see in a perfect teacher: Kind, compassionate, knowledgable, and has the most amazing personality! She knows exactly what to do for every piece of music that I learn, and teaches me new techniques in every lesson that I carry on to every ensemble I participate in! Going off to my university next year, I am sad that I cannot have lessons with her when I leave. But I know that she was the one who got me there, who prepared me for college level of music at a university ranked number one in the nation for orchestral music. She helped make me who I am today, and I will forever be grateful to have her as a tutor and a friend! and to whom it may concern, I promise you that if you pick her as your tutor you are making the best decision of your life!

About Stephanie
Hello, I'm Stephanie! I teach beginning to advanced voice lessons and beginning to intermediate piano. I have students of all ages and love helping them on their musical journeys. Whether you are just starting out or want to reconnect to your musical interests, I am here to help!

I am an accomplished vocalist with experience in an array of musical genres including opera, musical theater, jazz, art songs, oratorios, masses, and cross-overs. I sing at weddings and special events throughout Southern California, serve as the soprano section leader at Mission Basilica San Juan Capistrano, and am a member of several choirs and a cappella groups.

As a veteran vocal coach, I have trained singers from 5 to 60 years of age. There is always something new to be learned and I help my students discover and unlock their talent. The voice is foster
ed through the use of vocal exercises and learning proper technique. I find that beginning piano lessons are excellent for those too young to begin studying voice or those that want to supplement their vocal studies.

I look forward to discussing potential teaching opportunities with you very soon!
