My instruction of voice will focus on proper breathing techniques and healthy vocal production. I will help the singer navigate and expand their vocal range comfortably. I am a strong believer in the bel canto technique and will assign Mozart arias to train the voice. I am happy to introduce the student to repertoire that is appropriate for their voice. However I think it is very important for the student to do a lot of listening and research on their own to find repertoire that they want to sing.

I will also teach basic music theory and sight reading skills

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.

I was classically trained as a singer and can help you sing opera as well. Many of my students have worked on opera pieces before and currently.

About Vanessa
As a vocal teacher I focus on the correct method to singing that helps keep your voice beautiful and healthy.
I earned my bachelors degree in music education with an emphasis in vocals. I learned music appreciation, theory, history, choral singing and classical voice training.
I love music and cannot picture life without it. Music is an expression of life! I also love to teach music to others as I feel I'm passing on a great gift.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a teacher I fall somewhere in between strict and laid back. For instance, if you don't practice I won't scold you, but I will remind you that you can only be as good as you work to be. If you don't want to put in the effort you will waste your time and money, as well as not receive the results that you were desiring.
Our lessons will consist of many vocal exercises, go
od posture, and breathing techniques. One rule that I have is that I don't move you on to another song until you have successfully learned all you can from the first one you try. There is no point in learning another song when you have only learned the first one at a mediocre level.
If you are serious about becoming a better singer/musician you will enjoy our lessons.
I encourage my students to strive for excellence and will do all I can to draw that out of you.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide the tools to learn theory, songs to choose from and I do have my own portable keyboard. Students would need to have a tape or digital recorder to record their lessons and a positive attitude.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical voice, and vocal training, (learning how to use your voice properly).

I signed my 2 daughters up for a set of 5 singing lessons to prepare for an upcoming musical theater production. Not only did Vanessa work well with my 9 and 12 year old, but she sent them home with a weekly digital voice exercise to practice during the week, which I thought was very beneficial. My 12 year old went into the musical theater production with greater confidence, and my 9 year old was chosen for the role she had been hoping for.

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

For student's interested in coming to my Teacher's studio or online lessons you get a copy of your lesson so you can see yourself improving and a free copy of my warm-up CD!

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!

Also There are discounted rates for worship teams and church choirs. For more information please contact me through the "Ask a Question feature"

*** 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.

Miss Fawn is my all time favorite teacher! She's very clear about her teaching and is a great teacher to learn from. Although she's strict on learning, she's honestly a teacher where you actually have fun at the same time! She actually makes sure that you understand, and I'm glad she does that.

I found Fawn because my friend has been working with her for 4 years on rap and R&B music. His rapping, writing and singing has improved 500%, so when I needed help with my spoken word and my rapping, I knew who to go to! Fawn is cool. She pulls out of me what I need to succeed. Her skills are on point. It's her perfectionism, enthusiasm and expertise that keep me improving my craft and my end game. She is in on every recording for my new project and I am getting paid now for my talents thanks to her.

With operatic singing, it is very important to be able to sing properly, but moreover to be able to act and dance on stage. If you take lessons with me I will help you study the technical details of producing good tone with your voice, but also will help you study the text and convey the message of the music properly.

About Michelle

If you take lessons with me, we will go over technique fundamentals, IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) for singers, and classical repertoire. Additionally, I offer lessons in theory, musicianship, and Spanish. I am eager to begin working with you!

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!

Stephanie is a great vocal instructor. To start, she has an amazing voice herself, and she instantly puts you at ease where you can trust her. I keep learning more and more about my voice and how to use it, and I appreciate that she customizes her teaching method to my very inquisitive learning style, explaining all the technical aspects that help me understand what I'm doing. I only have great praise for Stephanie.

Want to sing without strain or breaks in your voice? Want to uncover your true and natural tone? I am a certified instructor for the Institute for Vocal Advancement and I teach vocal technique that can be applied to all levels of singer and all styles of music. I specialize in teens and tweens, songwriters, actors who sing, and those with vocal issues due to lack of or poor technique. I am incredibly passionate the voice because I have been there. Working through my own vocal issues has given me a unique insight into what it’s like to be on the other side. I am patient and compassionate. I can quickly assess a voice and prescribe the appropriate tools to balance the voice and help correct any negative vocal tendencies. I have 20 years of experience performing and studying with top vocal coaches. I also teach sight singing, music theory, beginning piano, guitar and ukulele. Experienced with teaching online skype lessons. Learn to sing healthy, free, and strong!

About Annie
I am classically trained with 20 years of experience singing, performing, and working with top vocal coaches. I teach in-person or online via Skype. I specialize in working with teens/tweens, songwriters, actors who sing, and those with vocal issues due to lack of or poor technique.

I teach the IVA method which emphasizes vocal balance. Vocal balance is the ability to sing from the bottom to the top of the range without any strain, breaks, or noticeable change in tone quality. This technique can be applied to all styles of music and all levels of singers. I create a safe and enthusiastic environment for students to learn, explore, and grow, both as singers and artists. I encourage my students to strive for excellence. After working together, I want them to leave feeling enriched, inspired, and empowered.
