*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are tailored to the individual student's initial abilities. In all genres of music it is important to breathe well, have breath support, communicate the emotion and character of the song, and eliminate vocal bad habits. These issues are different for everyone.

I teach a classical Italian technique of breath support and beautiful tone, and these techniques can be applied to all musical styles.

The student will be assigned and choose songs to learn and work on as we incorporate the techniques into the songs and vocal exercises.

Piano lessons and Italian lessons are also available from ages 5 and up.

*** Studio Equipment ***
CD player, 7' Boston grand piano, digital recorder

*** Travel Equipment ***
Yamaha keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
Voice, classical, pop, Broadway, opera, Italian, piano, music theory,
audition preparation. I specialize in opera but sing many styles, including pop, classical, and musical theatre; I teach all styles in piano.

I have a lot of knowledge and experience in understanding the art of singing. I've studied with some of the best voice teachers out there and have many amazing exercises that will help you to glean some insight on some of the physiological components of singing- breathing, chest voice, head voice, mix voice, and falsetto that will in turn expand your range and enhance your overall tone.

About David
A fun, friendly, and professional Music Instructor at your service for Voice, Guitar, Piano, Bass, Drums, & Ukulele! I have a BA degree from Florida Atlantic University in Music Performance for Classical/Flamenco/Jazz/Blues guitar and I've also performed on the Piano/Keyboards for a couple different bands too. Love to play & teach pretty much all styles of music! It is always a pure joy & truly rewarding to see my music students grow and flourish in their musical abilities. I have been enjoying doing this now for 20+ years- all ages & levels. I am also in a multi-dimensional rock project and a recording artist with my band Vision.

I believe it's important to learn the rudiments of music to build a good foundation (scales, chord vocabulary, theory, song-composition, performing techniques), but I also base the lessons on whatever th
e interests and strengths are for the student. For example, if you enjoy jazz more than classical we'll focus more on what you are particularly passionate about. I have also been a part of School of Rock Programs in which we provided performances for the students a la Jack Black. Please contact Takelessons to let the musical journey begin...

My experience teaching voice spans six years and I have helped my students develop their performance and interpretation skills. My students have learned to sing their favorite songs for special occasions or recreation, sing as a soloists or part of a choir.

In our first lesson, we'll discuss your private goals and develop a plan for their realization. Within the first few weeks, we'll work on specific skills and techniques in order to achieve your goal. From the beginning, you will have a chance to practice your skills and work on music that inspires you. If desired, you'll have an opportunity to sing at an annual recital or other performance opportunities. My selection of materials depends on your skill level and personal goals and ranges from pop songs, classical arias to a custom set of materials.

I have worked with students of all ages and abilities, from absolute beginners to advanced students, young children to senior citizens. I am very interested in working with ...

I know Ania's teaching from the time we worked together at music schools in Seattle, and I've gotten to see the passion and high level of musicianship that she brings to her lessons. Ania pushes her students towards clear and attainable goals with steady encouragement, and I saw the results in the rapid progress of her students, who loved playing their instrument and were visibly excited by the gains they were making. I highly recommend her as a teacher!

I have been taking the piano lessons with Ania for a couple of lessons. She helped me realize my life-long dream of playing classical piano music. She is a very talented and astounding instructor with a super solid theoretical background. During the lesson with her, the music goes way beyond just playing the right note with correct tempo. She shows me those exquisite parts hidden behind the sheet music. The piano music starts to become dynamic, alive and captivating. I highly recommend her to anyone.

Vocalists are special in that their bodies are their instruments! Learn about the anatomy of the voice, proper technique, and expand your repertoire!

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!

Roxanne is an excellent music teacher, and plays from the heart. It is the love for what she does, that sets her apart from other teachers. Most music instructors are following a commercially driven style, that breeds regiment over fun. However, if playing music has the natural fun taken out of it, then the music produced by the student becomes a carbon copy, losing originality. These types of teachers are showing you how to imitate other artists, Roxanne shows you how to be an artist worthy of imitation.
