Are you looking to exceed your own wildest expectations of yourself? Curious about singing better? Ever considered voice lessons? Have you ever wanted to feel more confident with your sound? If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, it's time to explore this new opportunity! As a teacher, I lead my lessons with a gentle approach, whether you are a beginner or advanced musician. I am a recent graduate of Azusa Pacific University and earned my Bachelor's in Music: Vocal Performance. With a fresh mind & pursuing my Master's degree, I can teach with confidence. It will always be at your own pace and at your own time. I'm always listening to those I teach in the most positive of lights, but still maintaining a discerning eye over the music you will create. Hiring me as a teacher, I will be working to the best of my ability to display and exemplify what I believe it means to be a good musician. I'm passionate about what I do, and I want to show you exactly why.

About Vanessa

Singing has always been my passion. The human voice is so complex that I was entranced with it at a very young age. Due to my exposure to Disney movies and Disney Channel, I began singing at 5 years old and would be involved in my school's talent shows! Once middle school began, I joined the chorus

Vanessa was my daughter’s first singing coach ever (age 9) so she was naturally shy at first, but Vanessa made her feel comfortable, confident and was very patient with her. Very happy with the time my daughter had with her coach! She is now more confident and knows more about music and her own voice!

“Great singer and teacher! She was so much fun :)”

I always wanted to learn to sing, but I'm pretty shy when singing in front of people. However, I've been gaining more confidence with Vanessa's singing lessons! She has been teaching me different methods and practices I can use to improve my pitch. I already hear a significant difference in my voice. She's also very encouraging when teaching. Even though we can't meet in person, I can feel her enthusiasm through the screen. I highly recommend taking lessons from Vanessa if you're looking for fun singing lessons!

My lessons with Rodrigo were great! He certainly has a solid knowledge about music and how to play it. He’s a nice guy. Very friendly.
Donna
I am so happy to have this opportunity to review Rodrigo Rodríguez. I have learned so much with him over the several years that I have been studying with him! He has totally transformed my guitar playing and has helped me to achieve my specific goals which are: To learn to play rhythmically with my right hand, to learn the fretboard better so that I can play more advanced songs, and to learn the repertoire of Spanish language music. He is so knowledgeable and talented! I have learned styles and songs from him from many different countries - Argentina, Peru, Bolivia, Cuba, Colombia, and Mexico. In addition to all of that, he is a first rate human being who I feel fortunate to know! So, do yourself a favor and take lessons from him. He is a great teacher!

Rodrigo is a patient teacher who is a great musician. I have only had one lesson with him, but believe I will make good progress in learning the cajun accordion.

lessons will focus on whatever skills the student is interested in learning. I can help with all aspects of trumpet playing: efficiency of playing, tone quality, range, endurance, improvisation, tonguing, etc. I can teach everyone; from absolute beginners through musicians that are serious about pursuing trumpet as a career.

Very easy and friendly atmosphere . I am beginner with a very weak voice . I took Few classes with Ted and my voice became strong and pleasant. Now I have confidence when I sing. Great instructor.
Louis
Knows his stuff, great teacher.
Moe
“If you can sing opera you can sing anything.” This is something I learned while taking vocal lessons with Ted Dougherty. Many voice teachers aim to silo you into one style of singing but that is not the case with Ted. He will help you build your voice to be the strongest it can be while encouraging you to practice and sing the types of music you are passionate about. Ted is an extremely talented musician who not only has the knowledge to teach you new techniques, but also has the ability to demonstrate those techniques. I started voice lessons with him when I was 12 years old and only ended my lessons with him when I went away to college years later. I truly believe, were it not for my lessons with Ted, I would not have the quality voice I have today. If I lived anywhere near Raleigh, NC, nothing would be able to stop me from going for voice lessons with Ted as often as possible.

Ukulele is a newer instrument to me, but I have been teaching and performing for over 8 years now. I have played music since age 5 starting with violin and later guitar, which I studied at Berklee College of Music. Uke became a recent passion as I formed an acoustic duo of cello and ukulele (and singing) called DvOd that has performed all over the NW and released a CD. I provide a core curriculum of basic technique and music knowledge, combined with customizing to the student's interest. From Traditional Hawaiian to Eddie Vedder to Jake Shimabukuro, I can help you learn your favorites.

"BEST music teacher ever! Seeri started my son with violin when he was 8 and a half. Since then, he has not stopped thriving with violin and he got into a good orchestra besides his school's less than a year after she started teaching him. She is a natural with children (my son is not easy to lead), kind, playful and yet very focused and intense; firm but always gentle. She LOVES her instrument and music in general. She teaches everything, theory included. A pure gem of a teacher and a rare person."

"Teri is a premier vocal coach. When I first came to her, I didn't know what I was doing; I knew I had some talent, but didn't know how to hone it. Teri was just the person I needed. A vocalist herself from the school of hard knocks, Teri's real life artist experiences give her unique insights into what makes a vocalist tick and how to discover and nurture one's artistry. She has an excellent ear and is a phenomenal teacher. Teri has an upbeat style; always positive and encouraging, but also honest and straightforward. Teri tells it like it is out of love for the art form and her students. She's a vocal coach extraordinaire, and I highly recommend her."
