Singing Lessons in Diamond Bar

By Varin I. - Los Angeles Vocal Instructor

Do you want to be able to sing your favorite songs? Are you looking to take singing lessons in Diamond Bar? Lucky for you, Los Angeles is the best place to learn how to sing and get involved in an amazing music community. There are many famous vocalists around the area. For example, Snoop Dogg lives and raises his family in Diamond Bar. Lead singer Gwen Stefani from the band No Doubt grew up in Fullerton, and Stacy Ann Ferguson (better known as Fergie) from The Black Eyed Peas is from West Covina.

In pursuit of your dream to reach stardom and become another local celebrity, you should try to attend a live show and watch professionals perform their craft. To start, check out some small, local performances, and be sure to keep an eye out for flyers posted in shops. Most nearby cities with a downtown will usually have a small music store, coffee shop, or dance studio within a short distance of each other. These places will usually offer a open mic night, which can be a great opportunity to practice what you’ve been learning in your singing lessons in Diamond Bar. At these venues, you can hear a variety of music, from classical to punk rock. Attending these musical acts is a great way to bond and be with people who share the same taste of music as you. Other than that, it's just fun attending and enjoying the shows.

In downtown Pomona, there is this venue called the Fox Theater, and every once in a while, they will have a big artist in town. I remember Ed Sheeran opening there for Snow Patrol before he became super famous. Same thing with Paramore before they signed with a major record label. Venues like this one offer acts that are in between amateur and professional levels. http://www.foxpomona.com/

Community colleges offer good shows at an affordable price. I have numerous students who sing at local colleges. In addition to your private lessons, taking a singing class at a local community college is an awesome way to network and make friends. I also highly recommend seeing a show. (Sometimes, the shows are even free!) Check out a few of these community colleges, and take a look at their upcoming performance and class schedules: https://tickets.mtsac.edu http://www.haughpac.com http://fcfinearts.fullcoll.edu

Additionally, since music is practically free on YouTube, it has been an important source for studying singing. As I tell all of my students, YouTube is a great source for getting ideas for their music. Other good singing resources are online concert venues, such as Stageit, where fans are able to interact with their favorite artists in the comfort of their own homes. If there is a singer whom you are dying to ask a question, now you actually have a chance to do it! Definitely check out Stageit: www.stageit.com

Keep in mind that singing and listening are skills that are developed over time. It is not difficult or impossible to do, but it requires diligent work, time, and effort. I honestly believe that anyone can sing, as long as they don’t quit or judge too quickly about the way they sound. I hope you’ll attend a show, get inspired, and make a friend while taking singing lessons in Diamond Bar. Good luck to all those aspiring singers out there in Los Angeles area. You are sure to benefit from the many wonderful and local resources available to you. Have fun doing what you love, and enjoy the experience of singing in Los Angeles.

Learn breath and placement techniques to help find the best version of your voice.

About Leah
Hi! My name is Leah and I provide Beginner to Intermediate lessons in voice and piano. I am a professional singer/songwriter/recording artist with 10 years of training in voice and 12 years of training in piano. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Business from Anderson University (Anderson, Indiana) where I studied voice with Dr. Jeffrey Ballard and piano with Professor Ken Chan. I have spent the last 10 years singing, performing, writing, and recording professionally, and I love to share my musical passions with my students.

*** Lesson Details ***
By taking voice lessons with me, you will increase your vocal range, learn correct breathing methods and healthy practice/warm-up exercises, and gain confidence in your performance skills, all while singing the songs and music styles YOU enjoy. Our lessons will be fun, interesting, a
nd beneficial.

With piano lessons, you will learn music theory (including scales, chords, time signatures, key signatures, etc.), exercises to increase dexterity, and how to play the songs YOU want to play. I typically use the Faber curriculum for my piano students, but this may vary depending on each student's needs and interests.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to provide a piano or working electric keyboard for us to use during the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
In voice lessons, I specialize in teaching contemporary styles- pop, blues, soul, gospel, etc.

In piano lessons, I have much experience in working with beginners, both children and adults, but will work with students up through the intermediate level.

Sadly, I had to stop taking lessons because I got very busy, but I really enjoyed taking voice lessons from Leah for almost 2 years. She was very dedicated to helping me achieve the best sound possible and was excellent at explaining how to get a better sound. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to improve their singing!

I've been teaching music for 15 yrs on guitar, piano, bass, cello and bass. My students have ranged from from 5yrs to 75yrs of age. I have seen many student go on to join orchestras, bands, broadway shows or simply continued their education to a university or college. Being able to read music profeciently has given me the opportunity to teach off many method books but like to use Alfred Method, Mel Bay and Frederick Noad Method books. I teach many styles ranging from classical, jazz & blues, rock, contemporary and pop. I do stress and recommend all my students to learn how to read music and usually by our second or third lesson they will playing simple songs. I am here to help you make music!

About OMAR
Knowing that you are looking for a instructor to teach you music puts a smile on my face. You see, music has been a part of my life since the age of 3. Some of my first memories are of me accompanying my father at home with his rehearsals or just singing together to have fun as a family. I believe music is a gift that unites people together bringing out our deepest emotions that words cannot express. At the age of 5 I received an organ and from that point on I embarked on a long life journey to indulge and learn more about music. In elementary, junior high and high school I was involved in any subject dealing with music. I joined school choirs, orchestras, bands, marching bands, jazz bands, musicals you name it. While enjoying all school music activities I was selected to join in honor county and state orchestras and choirs. In junior h
igh and high school I was selected to play for the Junior Pacific Symphony Orchestra, received scholarships to music summer camps, and was selected musician of the year. In college my quest continued with the Orange Coast College Orchestra, Praise Symphony Orchestra, Vanguard University Orchestra as well as guitar ensembles and college choir groups. I've also taken private lessons from Dr. Art David (Julliard graduate) in stand up bass as well as David Black (Pacific Symphony Orchestra) and classical guitar with Richard Glenn and David Murray. I've been teaching now for 15 years in guitar, classical guitar, bass guitar, stand up bass, cello, piano and voice ranging from 5 yr old to 65 yr old. My styles of music range from classical, jazz, rock, blues and contemporary. At this point I'm enjoying playing and singing in my church choir and worship team as well as teaching my two kids the joys of music. I hope you truly enjoy the joy of learning music whether it be through me or another teacher.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a teacher I require all students to set time aside to practice. For without it, it is only wasting your time, your money and my time. I don't expect a total dedication to it but I do want to see some effort put into it. A little practice can go a long way and the more you do it, the faster you will progress and the more you will enjoy it. We will first start off with what you want out of music and the level you are at and go from there. Student can bring their own music either thru tabs, music sheet or just by ear but one thing I do expect is a student to learn how to read music notation. We will go thru the regular warm up exercises, material practiced during the week and any new music for the following week. Correct techniques in how to hold your instrument or voice procedures will be addressed. Music theory will also be part of the lesson as well as ear training. At the end of either 3 to 6 months you will have learned the basics of music and will be playing songs for you or someone else to enjoy. I will make it a total relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere but some dedication has to put on the students' part.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Dedicated music room, guitar both classical and electric, piano, cello, upright bass and electric bass guitar

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide my own instrument. I can also provide music stand, small amplifier if needed and music material for the first few lesson until student provides for him/her self. Student must have own instrument.

*** Specialties ***
My way of teaching would have to be that they must learn how to read music while learning how to play an instrument.

I believe in healthy singing and finding the type of music that best suits your voice! I am a classically trained singer, but most of my students sing musical theater and popular repertoire. Many of my students audition for shows, and I love helping them find auditions, pick out appropriate repertoire, and prepare for auditions. I also have many students who just enjoy singing and want to improve their technique.

About Belinda
I have been teaching voice and piano since 2010, and I love sharing music with others! I am available for in-home and online lessons, and I teach a variety of styles for both voice and piano. My higher education studies are in vocal performance with a focus on classical music, opera, and art song, but a lot of my vocal students work on musical theater and popular repertoire. My piano students also play a variety of styles, and I teach many to play and sing at the same time!

I treat every student with respect, and I truly enjoy getting to know them as well. I like to have fun in my lessons, but I also have years of training and musical knowledge to impart to my students. I am well versed in vocal pedagogy (the science of vocal production), and I use this education to promote healthy singing! I received my Bachelor of Music in Vocal Perf
ormance at Boston University and my Master of Music and Doctorate of Music in Vocal Performance at Arizona State University.

Overall basic vocal technique, vocal placement, harmony, ear training.

About Tanisha
Tanisha is a graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music's Vocal and Music Business programs. Since arriving to Los Angeles, Tanisha has built a solid career providing artist development services to professional entertainers, recording artists and actors. Her services include vocal coaching, piano lessons, music theory, songwriting, performance development, media and stage training. Tanisha is also an accomplished songwriter. She is a regular co-writer with platinum selling recording artist Shanice Wilson of "Flex and Shanice" on OWN. Tanisha also works closely with casting and producers of the major network talent competitions The Voice, America's Got Talent and American Idol. Additionally, many of our clients can been seen and heard

In addition to teaching music, Tanisha has enjoyed a successful career in the entertainment
industry working with top tier performers such as Chaka Khan, The Black Eyed Peas, Montell Jordan and Babyface to name a few. Accompanying her is a staff of accomplished performers and teachers who have credits throughout the entertainment industry. At the WHAA, her performing arts academy, she offers a conservatory-level curriculum focusing on the fundamental skills of technique, composition, artistry and performance in music, dance, drama and visual arts.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very fun loving person and believe in creating a positive environment where students feel comfortable to be themselves. At the same time I am a stickler for details and do not allow laziness. I believe a balance of fun with excellence has allowed my students to excel far beyond their own expectations. Good results takes HARD WORK! Please do not come to lessons with the expectation to sing like Beyoncé or play piano at Carnegie Hall after 4 lessons. Mastering your voice and instrument takes equal parts of time, hard work, dedication and patience.

My teaching style is individually based.
For vocal clients, I asses their strengths and weaknesses and develop a plan to build up their weak areas while helping them find "their own voice". I focus on breathing, intonation and control which I believe are the foundation of great singing ability. I use a classical Italian based program along with pop, R&B, jazz, and rock. I have vocal coached in many languages including Spanish, Japanese and Chinese.

For piano clients I focus on strength, dexterity and precision in fingering. I also help students learn to feel the music and bring their personality and touch to each piece they are performing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Tanisha currently teaches at her performing arts academy the White H Arts Academy. There are private instruction rooms and a lobby waiting area for parents and guests. Parents may also sit in the lesson room if desired. Private lesson rooms include a piano, speakers, and a music stand.

The White H Arts Academy also has two state of the art mirrored dance rooms with sound systems and wireless microphones for practicing stage performances or rehearsing for a big show.

*** Specialties ***
Vocals: beg to adv
Piano: beg to inter

Vocal genres are classical (opera), pop, R&B, gospel, rock, jazz, blues and musical theater. I studied voice at Berklee College of Music. Have also studied Seth Riggs SLS (Speech Level Singing) method independently, however, I am not certified. I also teach in languages other than English including Spanish, Japanese and Chinese.

Piano instruction levels I teach are basic to intermediary focusing on classical, and general accompaniment abilities.

I'm a personal trainer - for your voice! My trainings incorporate modern twists on the most effective techniques from the Swedish-Italian school of singing. I use this classical technique as the foundation for compelling vocals in commercial styles, such as pop, soul, and rock. You will learn how to use your body and breath together to produce powerful and beautiful sound!
Your lessons are handcrafted - warmups, exercises, and all - to wherever you are in your vocal journey. Through each lesson, you will receive the tools you need to strengthen your voice and reach your goals. Let's have fun crafting a voice that stands out. Message me to get started, I can't wait to meet you!

About Moriah
I am a vocalist, songwriter, pianist, and recording artist, currently tracking the debut EP for my synth-pop project Steel Maggie. I graduated from Cal Poly Pomona with a Bachelors of Arts in Music, emphasis in Music Industry Studies, including voice and performance training. I have studied with/been coached by Martin Green from Citrus College, Dr. Susan Ali and Kendra Vuk from Cal Poly Pomona, and Aretha Scruggs.

I specialize in singing and teaching commercial styles, particularly pop, rock, and soul, but my approach to all commercial vocal practice is derived from classical traditions, mainly from the Swedish-Italian school of vocal production. No matter your skill level or background, you can be assured that you will receive a solid foundation in theory and technical skill through our lessons. Our sessions will take place in my
home studio.

While I primarily teach voice, I have had extensive piano training, so if you are interested in playing the piano while singing, I will gladly help you develop that skill. As an avid songwriter, I can guide you through the songwriting process, show you how to write melodies that fit your range and vocal timbre, and give you tips to improve your songs.

in addition to helping you strengthen your voice and reach your vocal goals, I will teach you how to maintain your progress and prime yourself for continuous growth. You will never feel judged or put down in your lessons with me. I make it my mission to foster an environment of encouragement, self-esteem, and fun. However, like a personal trainer, I will hold you accountable, because I want to see you excel and stand out in your singing endeavors. I want you to thrive as a vocalist. I look forward to our first session together!

She reminded me to enjoy the process of learning a new song and to embrace my originality.

No two voices are alike, and they shouldn't be! I teach sustainable singing while retaining and highlighting what is special about your voice. We'll strengthen the tone, expand the range and work toward creating a singing voice that is compelling, reliable, and second-nature. Looking forward to working with you!

About Ryland
Hi, I'm Ryland and I'm a professional vocal coach. If you're ready to reach your peak performance, you've come to the right place!

I work with singer-songwriters, pop artists, and theater performers not only to craft a sustainable approach to singing, but to connect with your voice and your material in a way that makes your performance unforgettable.

I have coached dozens of artists like you, seeking to develop their instrument - be that for a gig, for an audition or to develop as a singer and as an artist.

Recent credits include vocal coaching for the major motion picture musical "Crazy For The Boys" (Summer 2018), and creation and instruction of a new vocal development program for the transgender community at the Los Angeles LGBT Center's Trans*Lounge.

I received formal education for Vocal Performance from New York Unive
rsity. Since then, I have worked in nearly every angle of the entertainment industry from backup singing in a divey pub to vocal coaching and music directing a major motion picture, you name it. Understanding and coaching the artist at any particular juncture in their journey is one of the beautiful things about my job.

I'm already looking forward to working with you! - RS

Ryland is the real deal. He’s an amazing teacher and has helped me resolve an issue that I’ve had my entire life with my voice. I always felt I was straining my voice and always had to make a huge effort trying to be heard and yet my voice would not project and often people would have a hard time hearing what I was saying. I always felt very frustrated because our voice is such an intimate expression of ourselves and I felt that I was making this huge effort and my voice did not feel like a natural expression of myself. Instead I felt tense and uncomfortable. When I picked up acting, the issues with my voice, the need to be heard and to have a confident vocal range became more urgent. I didn’t really believe it would be possible because I had tried a speech therapist in the past but Ryland has taught me how to make lasting changes to my voice that have made a huge difference in my life. Ryland is incredibly gifted. He has an amazing ear and can hear things about my voice that I don’t even know how to put into words. We worked over a period of several months and he was a truly wonderful teacher, not only in terms of the work we did during the lessons but also his kindness, compassion and nurturing were equally important in helping me make the changes. I can’t recommend him highly enough.

Ryland is an exceptional communicator, helping me learn to get out of my own way and trust my voice that's already here.
