About Judy
I started taking music lessons at the age of 9. It began playing in the church and then I taught lessons in my home at the age of 16. I went on to attend and graduate from Christian Heritage College (now called San Diego Christian College) with a Bachelors Degree in Music and Business. I am now the Director of the Music Department at San Diego Young Artists Music Academy. I direct two youth and children choirs, a male chorus and a great adult choir. I also sing with the Voices of Prayze who travel with Jason Mraz from time to time. As a singer, pianist and as a teacher, I specialize in Gospel piano & vocal technique and repertoire. I also have a great deal of experience in Pop, R&B, and Classical so I am able to help students excel in these genres as well.

*** Lesson Details ***
As your private teacher, I can promise you a very soulful a
nd rewarding experience – having fun is part of my lesson plan. My goal for each student is to build confidence through knowledge and experience. I will encourage each student to reach into their spirit and bring out what is already inside of them through the type of music that brings them happiness. After 3- 6 months of lessons from me pianist will be able to know beginning concepts, play songs of their choice by ear and note read simple songs also. Singers will know beginning vocal exercises, be able to project their voice, and sing high and low notes accurately to songs according to their ability.

It was great! We determined the lowest I could sing as well as about the highest I can sing. She found a good key for my voice, showed me some breathing techniques and picked out another middle range song for me to sing! Can't wait for the next lesson!!

Finding your real voice, free vocalizing, harmony, blending, improve usable range, the mixed voice. The first steps to mastering vocal freedom are the building blocks for vocal success. Whether the student is a child or an adult, with little or no training, it is my goal to make singing an enjoyable and freeing experience. Singing with complete vocal freedom and confidence can seem very elusive. Surprisingly, it's not as elusive as one might think! The steps to vocal freedom are within reach and most students experience a measure of freedom within the first lessons. Using a systematic method incorporating learning technique and songs the student loves to sing makes learning more fun and gives the student a greater appreciation of music as a whole while encouraging a passion for music that lasts a lifetime.

About Cosima
My specialty is voice but I also teach acoustic guitar, ukulele and songwriting for the student who desires to develop their own style and create their own songs. Not only is it fun but the music education that comes with it is highly valuable for future musicians. (guitar and ukulele rentals available at an additional cost to the student)

For students who are just beginning their vocal journey or are busy performers who want to improve healthy technique and sing with more confidence; or perhaps a worship leader or backup singer is struggling with vocal strain, my goal is to help them find vocal freedom and maintain an amazing, healthy voice that will confidently meet their expectations, year after year, in every situation, every time.

As an active performing vocalist, musician, songwriter, and Christian worship artist and band lea
der, I understand the demands and challenges of a busy performance calendar, singing sets for back-to-back audiences day after day and week after week, and the need for a vocalist to find the vocal freedom that will produce confidence in their voice no matter what the venue.

The first steps to mastering vocal freedom are the building blocks for vocal success. Whether the student is a child or an adult, with little or no training, it is my goal to make singing an enjoyable and freeing experience.

Singing with complete vocal freedom and confidence can seem very elusive. Surprisingly, it's not as elusive as one might think! Vocal freedom is within reach and most students experience a measure of it within the few first lessons, some even gaining a full octave in their range in their first lessons. Using a systematic method incorporating the study of good vocal technique and working on songs the student loves to sing makes learning more fun and gives the student a greater appreciation of music as a whole while encouraging a passion for music that lasts a lifetime. I encourage and teach sight reading, and theory basics especially for those students who are considering music as a profession.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each student learns with material that will be divided into step-by-step doable lessons so they can be sure to learn the best techniques and material along the way. Sheet music and lesson books are provided at a minimal additional cost.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My home-studio is bright and open and set up with an upright piano, full length mirror, music stand, iPad with appropriate applications, guitar, mandolin, ukulele, and computer for recording and playback. Parents are welcome to sit in on lessons or wait for their children in the adjacent room. I also may provide a follow-up email which includes any recordings and lesson notes from the current lesson.

As the student progresses I also provide a PA system to teach mic technique and build performance confidence.

I ask that students come prepared with the following items to their lessons.
~ Bottled water
~ A ring binder with paper for notes and a zippered pouch to keep tools and handouts.
~ A flash drive for recording transfers or they can use their phone or other recording device to record their lessons.
~

*** Specialties ***
I honestly love my students and love teaching! It's such a privilege to be a part of their musical journey. I specialize in church worship vocals, choir, a capella, show tunes and musical theater. I teach free, healthy vocal technique which enables each student to explore and focus on different styles of singing. I also love teaching young voices especially teens who want to have a good time learning to sing.

NOTE ~ My teaching style is more structured therefore some young children may not be ready to take lessons with me.

I had Cosima for a few months and I saw a change in my voice. Not only did she help me improve my voice but she was able to explain it in a way that I could understand the fundamentals of how singing happened. I had a song that I wanted to sing for my sisters wedding and if she didn't help I probably wouldn't have sang. I would like to say thank you to Cosima for helping me understand singing/vocal world. I was so new to it even though I have been singing from young age. She was able to help find my struggle in singing and we worked at it as much as possible to improve it. My chest voice and bridges definitely got better then what they were when I first started taking lessons with her. I have learned a lot and I have seen a difference in my voice. I'm really happy and blessed that I was able to have Cosima as my teacher. I greatly appreciate her teaching me. I recommend her as a great singing teacher.

About Nicole B.

Fontana, CA

View Full Profile

Get ready for the most unique voice lessons you've ever experienced. Based on MDH Breathing Coordination, Nicole will do an assessment of your breathing mechanism and relate proper breathing to vocal production. Once the body is ready for singing, proper techniques will be explored through vocal exercises, which will then be applied to song selections. Laryngeal massage also available.

About Nicole
Lessons with Nicole are like none other! Students will learn methods of MDH Breathing Coordination* as the foundation of proper singing. This will bring clarity to common concepts like "support" and "placement." MDHBC is also very beneficial for musicians, actors, public speakers, dancers, and athletes!

Nicole has been singing her entire life, and began training in high school in 1990. In 1997, she graduated from "Citrus Singers" at Citrus College, where she received extensive training in vocal technique in a variety of styles, from opera to pop, and Broadway to jazz. She is educated in music theory and history, stage presence, dance, drama, etc. Since 1996, she has performed professionally in numerous musical theater productions all over southern California and beyond. She also has lots of experience singing with live bands, and Chris
tmas caroling in various venues including Disneyland. She has been teaching private voice lessons since 1998, and LOVES to see her students grow! Nicole has a lot to share with students who are serious about singing professionally, or students who just want to sing for fun!

*** Lesson Details ***
Private voice lessons are customized to each student's needs and goals. I will teach you warm-ups and proper techniques in order to protect your voice from being damaged, and to free your voice to reach its full potential. I can also help you explore a variety of musical styles, as well as learn performance tips, microphone technique, music theory, and audition skills.
*There is a hands-on component to MDH Breathing Coordination, due to the goals of reducing body tension (shoulders, neck, etc) and recoordinating the breathing mechanism (ribs, diaphragm, etc). Minors must be accompanied by an adult, should they choose to include MDHBC in their lessons. For more info on this highly effective method, please Google it. :)

Lessons with Nicole are:

*FUN! Nicole is kind and encouraging. She makes learning fun, and has respect for all students regardless of skill level. Students feel comfortable and relaxed.

*EFFECTIVE! As long as the student attends all lessons, and practices during the week, results will come quickly!

We have been seeing Nicole for many years! She has helped my daughter the most with breathing techniques. She's always so positive, even when my daughter is feeling insecure, Nicole helps her push through to find her range and overcome her insecurities. My daughter always leaves Nicole feeling like she's ready to conquor anything. Nicole is the best in helping my daughter find her chest voice from head voice as well. We have been to 3 other vocal coaches and we continue to make our way back to Nicole because no one out there is better!

Upland, CA

Singing is so fun and students love it especially when they see how much they improve with their voice after just having a few lessons. I have been teaching voice for over 8 years and will work with the student to build them a strong, healthy voice technique!

During singing lessons we usually have 5-10 minutes of warming up and singing vocal exercises. We will then work on the student's song choices and cover in depth with training in breathing, range, pitch, stylistic techniques, and presentation.

About Christina
Christina is a multi-talented musician, producer, singer-songwriter and has been actively involved with music throughout her life. She began learning classical piano at the age of three and naturally fell in love with singing at a young age. Gifted with perfect pitch, she has excellent ability to play songs by ear. Christina has been teaching private piano and voice lessons since 2008. She is very passionate and motivated to help her students reach their fullest musical potential. Students can expect professional and quality lessons from Ms. Christina. Her teaching style and method is fun, laid back, and flexible while she emphasizes students to have a strong foundation of music theory. Christina will determine a personalized lesson plan for each student depending on their skill level after their first lesson assessment. Her goal is for s
tudents to enjoy each step of the learning process and most importantly, make significant progress during each lesson.

About Lia B.

Riverside, CA

I am a professional jazz vocalist and have been performing regularly for 8 years. I have 10 years of choral singing experience, both classical and jazz, and have a degree in Human Development. I have three years of private teaching experience and I teach students of all ages and skill levels. I love helping people discover their voice and how they would like to use it.

About Lia
I am a professional jazz vocalist, voice teacher, session singer, and bunny mom. I grew up around music and have loved to sing for as long as I can remember. I believe that exposure to music is the best way to learn how to do it. My parents are both singers so, naturally, we sang together around the house, in the car, etc.

I believe this exposure is what gave me the drive to become the performer and teacher I am today. Hands Down. I started out singing show tunes with my dad and classic rock/rock with my mom. I taught myself how to play guitar in middle school and this is when the solo-performer in me really started to develop. High school gave me choral music and folk/pop and college gave me jazz. Jazz is my main gig. I have been singing jazz music since 2010 and transformed into a full fledged jazzer along the way.

I believe th
at doing what you love to do can transform your whole outlook on life and work. I do what I love and that is all I can ask for.

I'm a female heavy metal singer and took 12 years off to raise a family so I needed help with pitch, power, control, strength, and development with my upper range and Lia delivered. What I was not expecting--and was pleasantly surprised by--was her additional instruction on adding more emotion through specialized breathing techniques and helping me move out of my comfort zone and attempt to tackle much tougher material. For someone so young in years, she is an old soul and has so much amazing experience to teach from. I've also seen her perform live covering extremely difficult songs and was blown away...even brought tears to my boyfriend's eyes when she sang his song request perfectly. I did not know her prior to my lessons. I met her randomly by emailing my local music store and inquired about lessons. She is worth every penny and I highly recommend her.

I truly love being a part of their journey furthering their love for music and helping others find their voice . Throughout my singing career I've been involved in state vocal completions, multiple choirs, musical theater, acapella groups, background singing and having a blast singing with live bands. I have been a vocal instructor for over four years and in that time have taught students ranging from 3-71years old. During my teaching career I've learned every voice is different and has the potential for great things and my job is to help my students discover it. I enjoy blending what I've learned while being a professional vocalist as well as using the tools I've gained in my music education.

About Stormie
Hello All!

Vocal lessons are about so much more than just learning to sing a scale correctly. When teaching I love to see my students gain self confidence, knowledge, passion and grow from where they started.

I enjoy all genres of music and love exploring many different vocal techniques to adapt to each genre and tune. My love for music stems from growing up in a musical family, my mother playing flute and my father being a vocalist and an actor. I started sing at 5 years old and began taking lessons myself at the age of 6 years old. Growing up I found that music has so many layers and while in college getting my degree in Social Science I also learned to compose music and work in sound design. Besides singing and teaching I also work for a music publishing company which keeps me update on the constant changing world of music.

I am so excited to connect with new students and share what I've learned on my musical journey!

I am an experienced Vocal Instructor. I have trained singers of all ages including: elementary, middle school, high school and adults. I was musically trained at the University of California Riverside. While studying there I was a soloist/vocalist for the Andean and Mariachi Ensembles; also I was a choir member of the Choral Society. Further I played several instruments in the Gamelan, Taiko, and Rondalla Ensembles at UCR. I am patient and enjoy the challenge of working with different personalities and backgrounds. I am bi-lingual in Spanish.

About Cynthia
As a soloist and teacher I have sung and taught many different genres. I don't believe in forcing a specific genre on my students. We work together to find songs that will help them grow while having fun. I love to see my students grow in technique and ability. When I hear their range grow as well it brings me satisfaction and joy! I love to see my student's confidence grow as well; especially when they hit that note "they couldn't hit" or nail that song that was "too hard." Breathing technique is key to your success and growth. Not all techniques are equal. Let me help you become the best singer you can be!
