*** Lesson Details ***
I am pretty easygoing, because I realize that students probably have a lot of homework, jobs, children to raise, etc. I believe that music should be enjoyable as well as educational! I also know that when a student practices, it heightens their enjoyment of music because it is far more fulfilling. I can guarantee that if you work with me as hard as I work with a student, you will feel excellent about your progress and ability! I have experience teaching people on the autism spectrum and those with Down Syndrome.

Jan is a fun and dynamic instructor whose patience and attention to the needs of her students has been instrumental in helping my daughter enjoy and thrive in her voice and piano lessons. While some instructors, in our experience, have been excellent musicians but poor teachers, Jan's style and flexibility make her an ideal person for passing on her knowledge to students, so that they in turn develop their own musical talents and shine. Many thanks, Jan, for your gifts!

I started off as an opera singer when I was young and believe me using those methods and techniques is what made me a strong singer today! I will guide you through breathing techniques and approaches to the songs. I do use Italian, Latin and German operas

About Rosita
I have been singing and studying voice for over 23 years since I was a child! I hold a Bachelors from Musicians Institute and other accomplished degrees from American Musical Dramatic Academy to conclude my quest for vocal excellence and the ability to sing in multiple languages ( English, Spanish, Japanese and Italian) I have been lucky enough to study with some of the top teachers in the country and now I bring the experience I have gained directly to you!
I am proud to share my student's vast array of musical successes. From being cast on short anime films and musicals to being accepted into prestigious performing arts academies to conquering the Karaoke scene. My passion for multiple languages and love of music is the desire driving me to share the gifts for teaching young children to open the door to their own musical abilities and
hidden artistic desires. I am currently writing a musical which will be debuting in 2020. I'm currently the vocal coach/Trainer and choir director at Iglesia Elim Central.

I will make sure my students have fun and help them get in the right track to their musical goals.

Also, I constantly upload videos on Singing, The Spanish Language, and Japanese! So keep Checking in! It ranges on tips and answering the most common questions on those particular subjects!

*** Lesson Details ***
I do my absolute best to create a positive atmosphere for my students. Even when the students feel frustrated or stressed, it is important to inspire them and give them the fuel that they need. Though I am strict when it comes to homework and their about their studies. Every lesson at the beginning I will review what we learned previously and test them.
then begin with proper breathing technique exercises, the cornerstone of all vocals. We move on to vocal exercises to condition the voice. Then we work on the songs that you are eager to sing!

I will use a piano when doing vocal warm ups and conditioning exercises. Students that play other instruments and accompany themselves when performing (such as a guitar) are encouraged to bring that instrument to their lessons. My goal is for them to gain the knowledge that they need to help reach their artistic goals.
With all my lessons every student will be taught a basic run down of Music Theory. My students will always progress in what they do. They will have the discipline that they need and yet have fun and be filled with inspiration. Which is the most important thing, to be Inspired to do better.

*** Studio Equipment ***
iMac, condensing mic...performing mic, keyboard, mixer...living room of apartment.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I do have a portable keyboard. Though I do expect the student to have their own recording device and karaoke tracks. At Home I do have a studio, and if the students has an iPod or an Mp3 player I can attach it to a device where all of us can hear the tracks. I do have a recording studio as well.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Musical Theatre, and Pop rock genres. When I teach my students I always have them learn a song of another language whether it's Spanish or Japanese. It helps with diction when they learn a song outside the English Language. Also It helps them to learn another Language at the same time. Also I give them a little anatomy class when they are learning how to sing. I give them a model of the vocal Chords and different areas of the Larynx and which part works for the chest voice and the head voice.

I teach operatic Bel Canto singing to beginners, intermediate, advanced, and touring professionals.

About Carl
During your first lesson I do a computer analysis of your voice, I find out what your goals are in singing, what your favorite kinds of music are, and I take you in the direction you want to go and show you how to get there in the shortest possible time.

Think you're the only one who feels that terrifying nervousness? Most everyone does, including the biggest stars. The four books I've written on singing are entitled, "SING BETTER FAST", complete vocal technique in brief, "HOW TO CONQUER NERVOUSNESS FOR SINGERS" in which I'll teach you to not only handle, but to direct extreme nervousness into your singing, making your performance soar. I've also written, "HOW TO GET STANDING OVATIONS FOR SINGERS" to teach you to drive your audience to their feet for a standing ovation, and "ADVANCED SINGING".

I always record my students so that
they know how they sound to others. I also make a CD of them singing to background music if they wish, included in the cost of the lessons for no extra charge.

Learn to sing beautifully, and most important, emotionally. Learn the parts of your vocal instrument, How each works, How they work together. Develop Breath support (80% of singing). Learn "The Singer's Formant", that "ringing" sound of professionals. Learn how to conquer nervousness, learn about Resonance, Overtones, Vibrato, How to sing high notes, Learn the "singing vowels", and more.

I would rather teach singing than eat chocolate, and if you knew how much I like chocolate, you'd know my passion for teaching singing. I've been studying voice since third grade, and teaching singing for eighteen years.

I've had nine singing teachers myself, so I know just how you feel. I get you comfortable, and I listen closely to what you want to do and where you want to go with your singing voice.

My students learn all the important aspects of singing right away, rather than drawing them out over time.

I teach beginner, intermediate, advanced, and professional students of all ages.

I teach all styles of singing, including pop, blues, gospel, classical voice, rock, jazz, scat singing, belting, country and western, and rap.

I teach singing in English, Italian, Spanish, and German.

As my singing student you'll have access to the four books I've written on singing: SING BETTER FAST: a complete but concise treatise on vocal technique (It includes a Practice CD with a free recording studio program to install into your computer); HOW TO CONQUER NERVOUSNESS FOR SINGERS, HOW TO GET STANDING OVATIONS FOR SINGERS, and SING BETTER FAST 2, ADVANCED SINGING. These four books are the most current and relevant works on these subjects available today.

My Bachelor's and Master's Degrees are from California State University Dominguez Hills.

Put your singing voice in my hands. You'll love what happens.

*** Lesson Details ***
My introductory class includes a computer analysis of your singing voice, then describes the main parts of your vocal instrument, how each works, and how they work together. It teaches you what a song is, and how to sing a song well right away.

During the first lesson I record every student and play it back, both for computer analysis, and also so the student can hear how they sound to others. Remember the first time you heard yourself in a recording and said, "That's not me!" I'll explain that to you, and why it's so important to record yourself and listen to your recordings.

Your lessons are designed toward YOUR goals and desires in singing, and include specific guides for your between lessons practice sessions.

I also teach how to sing karaoke and impress an audience. I've been studying audience psychology for more than 15 years, and MY ENTIRE ORIENTATION IN SINGING IS TO, "DRIVE YOUR AUDIENCE TO THEIR FEET FOR A STANDING OVATION!"

I record CD's with custom labels for students, with their picture, included in the price of the lessons. You can have a CD of yourself singing for you to to play, to give to your family and friends, or perhaps to sell.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons are in my home studio, with recording equipment which we use to record you in lessons and on CD's, high quality studio monitor speakers that let you sound exactly the way you sound to others, high quality recording microphones, computer, control panel, keyboard, and music stands.

*** Travel Equipment ***
When I come to your location for lessons I bring portable equipment to do a computer analysis of the student's voice, and to record and play back my student's progress for analysis and discussion.

*** Specialties ***
I teach singing in English, Italian, Spanish, & German, in all styles, including Pop, Blues, Gospel, Classical, Rock, Jazz, Scat Singing, Belting, Country and Western, and Rap.

Singing!! What's better than singing! Our very own instrument we all have. I was lucky enough to study Bel Canto operatic singing under the mighty Esther Salaman while at Trinity College of Music in London who shared her secrets about sound production with me. These are gems that most people have not explored.
It gives me great pleasure to watch operatic singers transform their experience through sound technique into a flawless, and mostly effortless process. Singing should be focused but free

About Andrew
British born and Educated at London's prestigious Trinity College of Music and The Royal Academy of Music, my professional musical career has spanned over two decades to date. I have performed with world renowned acts such as Sia, Dave Stewart and Horace Andy, and have been a featured recording artist on many of the worlds most famous film scores while myself having authored or co-authored over 30 movie scores.
A Suzuki violin student since the age of 3, I added piano, guitar, singing and composition during my teenage years. The Suzuki method encourages advanced aural development from very early on and this has turned out to be my strongest suit. With my ear, I have impressed some of the most notable orchestrators, composers, directors and producers in London, Hollywood and the world over. In fact, it was these on the spot aural magic tr
icks that allowed me to impress the Hollywood composer that first invited me to Los Angeles to work on my first blockbuster. That opportunity led to many years of success in the industry and some notoriety.
I have always had a passion for teaching, sharing my knowledge with others and watching other people take immense pleasure in their own achievements. I have been told time and time again that I have a very special gift for teaching and I would very much like to share it with you, whether you want to learn an instrument, musicianship, ear training, composition, hone your vocal or mic skills or learn how to arrange an orchestral piece in just a few hours!
I look forward to talking to you about your specific needs and goals and having the opportunity to help you realize them in a fun friendly and authentic atmosphere.

1) Build a vocal technique that will not fail you
2) Have piece of mind that the SOUND you want to come out of your mouth WILL come out
3) Know that you are using your own 100% authentic sound

...then you have found the right teacher!

🎥 🎶🎙 LESSON DETAILS 🎥 🎶🎙
Most teachers "vocalize" or "warm you up" for 5 or 10 minutes and then the lesson is spent just singing songs with no real emphasis on how to execute awe-inspiring and healthy singing.

Working with me is a truly distinctive experience, much like a workout with a trainer (Don't laugh because I'm a little overweight!). We will spend the hour working on very physical and concrete exercises to build a comprehensive technique that will support you through any genre of singing. At the end of each lesson, usually about 15 minutes, we can work on you
r chosen repertoire. Utilizing both vocalise and song literature of your choosing, we will go through very pragmatic and utilitarian methods that will generate an easy, free and uniquely individual sound.

I have been been blessed to be able to work with Zeffin for over 2 years now. Zeffin is a great voice coach, and he has been very instrumental in helping develop my instrument continuously and steadily. I can only highly recommend to anyone serious about singing, but don't take my spot. OK?

Shortly after finding Zeffin 2 1/2 years ago, my daughter started getting cast in shows! He has a way of working with children to bring out the best in them in a very natural way. He asks probing questions, makes them think about each scene and character and truly has a gift for working with young talent. My daughter has learned so much and grown in her acting ability. He is a great resource for all kinds of questions about the business. We are so glad we found him.

The most important aspect of vocal training that I will emphasize is breath support. Connecting to the body when singing will ensure vocal protection and prevent unwanted vocal strain. I will also focus on gaining control through scales and breathing. I would like my students to gain consistency in their lessons each week by providing them with new challenges and helping them to gain new tools when practicing. Applying these fundamental elements of healthy singing into each student's repertoire is the ultimate goal in these lessons.

About Christina
My name is Christina and I am very passionate about the vocal arts, specifically Opera. Opera was a surprise in my life that I discovered in college. It moved me to a point where I knew it was what I wanted to pursue. Though singing classically takes great patience, discipline, and perseverance, that 5 minutes on stage projecting pure vocal freedom and expression make it well worth it. The classical technique can provide a great foundation to healthy singing, which can ensure a long vocal life.
Along side opera, I believe basic knowledge in piano is extremely beneficial in improving musicality and an understanding of each piece. Piano greatly improves sight reading and ones ability to learn music quickly and efficiently. It can allow one to develop an understanding of harmony and context within each unique piece of music.
I have recent
ly started teaching and would love to help and guide those interested in music, specifically classical voice, opera, musical theater, and piano. I would love to share the great joy it brings me with others and pass down what I have learned over the years. I have completed courses in music pedagogy and education alongside my degree, and believe in shaping my lessons around each individual's learning style so that each student may continue to grow while having fun.

My students get so much more than JUST Voice lessons. They will have a full resource from a professional still working in the entertainment field. I share everything I have learned and am still learning with my students. Besides learning an incredible vocal technique that will help avoid vocal blow out, I teach emotional connection to your songs, on stage performance, mic technique, studio performance and work with song selection. I share my whole self with every student whether they are a beginner or a pro.

*Gasp*

Where do I begin?...

I am a musician of 15 years – with a background in composition, vocal performance, piano technic, percussion, production, etc. I have worked with several different vocal instructors throughout my lifetime. I have been a solo artist for 2 years at Pledge Empire Records while studying at McNally Smith College of Music for 2+ years before moving to Los Angeles, CA.

To say the least,
the day I started working with Deanna is the day I became a REAL musician.

Looking back at my previous experiences as a musician, pianist and especially a vocalist; I am disappointed that I didn't know Deanna sooner!

I've taken lessons from so many teachers over the years but Deanna was the only one that worked for me. She will tell you the truth, she will motivate you and guide you through it all. Being a performer for years, I have always struggled understanding my voice. Deanna explained the technicalities to me so I could understand what I was doing wrong.
She is simply wonderful! I can’t emphasize enough on how much she has helped me develop my skills in singing and as a musician. She’s not only a great teacher, but she is incredibly knowledgeable, talented and humble given the incredible accomplishments she has achieved in the past! Given her experiences, she does so much more than teach you vocal lessons; she shows interest in the type of musician YOU want to become so she can help you reach your own personal goals as an artist. I have never had a teacher (vocal, piano, percussion, etc.) that has ever executed that type of behavior. That alone makes her different from the rest.

What I love (and I mean LOVE) the most about Deanna is that she really listens. She can hear problems so well that her corrections help you get better quickly but also make it very clear for you. She is the most gifted vocal coach I have every had the pleasure working with. I have never met anyone who blends expertise, sensitivity, instinct, and compassion into her students as well as Deanna. It is safe to say, without a teacher like Deanna – I would’ve probably given up my singer career and headed back to my hometown in Minnesota.

Deanna is much more than a vocal teacher… She has been a motivation to me as a musician, such an amazing mentor and I am incredibly proud to say that I have a fantastic relationship with her.

She is flat out, the best vocal coach I’ve ever worked with!

Thank you for everything, Deanna!!

I have been working with Deanna for four weeks now. It took only 1 day to realize just how much of a positive impact she was going to make on not only my voice but also myself as a person. She is so motivational and makes me want to constantly keep pushing to get better. Unfortunately due to having two jobs my schedule will no longer allow me to have any more classes right now with her but once I get the chance I will be going right back to Deanna. So glad that I have had the chance to work with such a humble, considerate, and passionate artist like herself.
