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).

If you go to my website provoceartists.com, you can listen to me and some of my Broadway singers. I helped Amanda Seyfried secure her role in the movie Les Miserables. Recognizing that is critical for singers to be comfortable in front of an audience, I offer many types of classes and performance opportunities. Hope to hear from you soon!!

I first heard about Marianna while I was attending The Orange County High School of the Arts through a fellow student, Heidi Dean, who had this incredible voice and I knew I wanted to train with her. Marianna came to our school to see ‘Into the Woods’ and I met her after the show. Immediately her whole energy and aura was different than anyone I had ever met and we decided to train together. I would meet with Marianna every week and she would teach me these crazy voice exercises and really taught me how to shape and strengthen my voice. But Marianna taught me something and gives something to her students and the people in her life that goes beyond technique and vocal range. She gave me a confidence and connection to the artist in me, the professional in me, and the spirit that exists in all true artists. That is her true gift. I credit Marianna to my being cast in my first Broadway show, the revival of ‘Flower Drum Song’ starring Lea Salonga and still look to her for inspiration and direction. Let’s give and support Marianna back into the space where she can best share her gifts with the singers and artists who are waiting for her lesson.

I hold a master's in vocal performance from Cal State University, Fullerton and a Bachelor's in vocal performance from USC. I've been teaching voice for over 13 years. As a classical singer, I've had professional experience doing lead roles with various performing groups. This has taught me the level of expertise which is required in the real world of singing. In teaching classical singing, I focus on a breath-based technique where we focus on technical exercises designed to help you breathe more efficiently. We also work a lot on proper vowel formation and strive to eliminate excessive tension in your vocal instrument. Last but not least, we work on interpreting the music (musical phrasing, pronunciation, subtext). My goal is to help you become the best performer you can be. I encourage singers to take part in 2 studio recitals a year as well as various evaluations and competitions, depending on your own personal goals. I am a member of National Association of Teachers of Singing ...

About Shannon
I hold a master's in voice from CSUF and a double bachelor's in piano and voice from USC. With over 13 years of experience as a private voice and piano instructor I have had the privilege of helping many students achieve their musical goals. As a member of MTAC and NATS, I enter many students in Certificate of Merit, Student Evaluation Program, and other festivals. For pianists, I work on songs, scales, theory, ear training and sometimes improvisation. For singers, we work on a breath-based breathing technique and songs that reinforce good singing habits but that are also engaging for the singer. We also work on sight singing and theory.Though my training is mostly in classical music, I do work on other styles with my students.

*** Lesson Details ***
For pianists, I recommend the Premier Alfred piano course, or for older beginners/ad
ults, we use Adult Piano Adventures. I also recommend purchasing a scale/technique book and a theory book.

For singers, please bring a recording device (phone is ok) so that you may later practice the exercises which we learn in the lesson.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a Baldwin grand piano as well as an electronic piano in my studio. For budding pianists, I offer instruction with Piano Marvel software.

Classical and opera singing represents the Olympics of vocal artistry. The road to becoming a proficient classical singer lengthens as singers realize how much they have yet to learn. But, for those for whom classical singing is the be-all, end-all, there is no turning back.

Whether you want to sing O mio babbino caro or Nessun dorma as a career option, or for fun, good foundation training is necessary.

Technical training and repertoire development.

MTAC Certificate of Merit, Royal Conservatory Music Development Program, recital and performance opportunities for interested students.

I have trained singers for 40 years. Many of my singers perform semi-professionally and professionally in various settings and attend prestigious university music programs, including Juilliard.

About Patricia
I teach voice technique - how to get the most from your voice with no strain. And I also teach piano. Students and parents of students who expect intelligent, formal, conventional vocal or piano lessons taught by a seasoned, congenial and caring teacher will enjoy working with me.

And with more than 10 years Meisner-based acting training (Charles Conrad Studio and Steve Eastin Studio) and performing in film, TV, onstage and doing professional voiceover work, I am amply equipped to coach actors in your craft.

The more you put into your lessons, the more you get back from me. I love teaching those individuals who have a passion for their music.

I've taught privately and in public and private schools and in college and conservatory settings, vocal directed and musical directed musical theatre productions and directed choirs since
1975. I've taught for the Orange County School of the Arts (OCSA), and I currently teach voice and piano for the Music Conservatory at Mission Viejo Christian Church.

My professional background includes chorus work with Los Angeles Music Center Opera, with Orange County’s Opera Pacific and with the Los Angeles Master Chorale. I'm a San Mateo County Vocal Competition prize winner, and former staff soloist for the televised Crystal Cathedral Hour of Power Choir and the pre-recorded annual Glories of Christmas and Easter.

I've sung pop and rock, classical and religious background music, recording in various studios, including Hollywood's Capital Records, and performing in live venues large and small.

I honed my skills with a number of exceptional musicians including, most notably, Natalie Limonick (formerly general director of the USC Opera Program, director of the UCLA Opera Workshop and Opera Guild of Southern California President), Esther Andreas (Metropolitan Opera), Naomi Farr (New York City Opera), Nina Hinson (San Francisco Opera), Marion Cooper, Dietrich Erbelding, Charles Ross Perlee (conductor, San Francisco Opera and Bremen Opera), and several other respected teachers and coaches.

I'm a member of a number of professional organizations, including the Music Teachers Association of California, Music Teachers National Association, and the California Association of Professional Music Teachers. And I'm a Founding Teacher for the Music Development Program of the Royal Conservatory of Music.

I've been awarded an Emmy® for writing, I'm a former TV Arts & Entertainment news host and producer, NPR radio station affiliate host, and a former columnist for The Los Angeles Daily News. I'm a working spoken voice-over talent and an active member of SAG-AFTRA and AGMA.

About Eulis
--------------- I also teach Online via Skype or FaceTime! --------------------
Hello! Thanks for visiting my Takelessons profile. Let me start off by telling you a bit about myself:
I have been performing for over 20 years as a musician, acting since I was a small boy, and working consistently with public speaking, accent reduction and other presentational skills throughout my career. I started my musical education as a woodwind player and settled in to the wonderful world of singing over time. Music has opened me up to so many incredible opportunities from touring the world to performing in marvelous concert halls and working with some of today's most respected artists, as well as giving me the opportunity to expand my performance skills through acting in various plays, musicals, television, and film.

Performing has absolutely b
een my salvation! Throughout my life it has been a best friend and constant source of joy, and I share this gift with others so that it might help them to find the same joy. After more than 10 years of teaching, I have so many new experiences to draw from and share with my students. I've spent the last 9 years performing with Disney in California and abroad in their Tokyo Disney cast, and I must say that those experiences, vast and varied as they are, have given the word "performance" a new depth. I'm always excited to dive into every lesson with fresh ideas that will mesh well with many tried and tested teaching techniques.

Originally from Los Angeles, I now reside in Orange County and I'm especially proud to have expanded my studio to serving clients all over the world with online lessons via Skype and FaceTime! I get such joy from sharing my experiences with a diverse group of people from many walks of life.
If you're interested in learning more about my lesson style, feel free to contact me and I'd be happy to talk with you about a plan to help you reach your goals! You're also welcome to visit my website at euliskay.com to learn more about me and what I do!

For Students of Voice: Teaching Style

Over the past several years I have focused much of my personal growth on developing my ears' ability to pick out and pinpoint vocal “placement”, resonance, subtleties of timbre, changes in pitch, breath support, air speed and flow, pronunciation and diction, and in general, the way in which all of these work together to create style. From these assessments, I work with the student’s particular needs to address each area individually and based on the learning style of each person.
To illustrate to the student their method as I see and hear it, as well as ways in which they might make changes to facilitate the ease of singing --be they changes of tessitura (range), length of phrase, tone color, the release of unnecessary tension etc.-- I make use of vocalise (vocal exercises), simile and metaphor, examples from recorded performances, demonstration, self assessment, and techniques to “trick” the voice into acting in a different way, in addition to videos, diagrams, and texts on anatomy and physiology. I feel that all of these tools provide a unique and personalized learning experience for each student.

Rachel is professional, approachable, and extremely talented teacher! I definitely recommend her teaching an recording services. I received voice lessons to record for my husband's wedding present. I sang a song called "Still" by Hillsong and accompanied it with my own piano playing. My husband enjoyed the recording very much. Without Reed Vocal Studio, I would not have been able to give the gift of music to my husband. I do not regret having Rachel as my teacher and as my recording engineer. I added my recording on Sound Cloud if anyone is interested in taking a peak at what it is like to record music with Rachel. Let me tell you, she is amazing! Five stars all the way!!

Music is very important to me. I want my students to be inspired and learn. My students have been accepted into the top conservatories and universities in the United States. My students have also won major vocal competitions as well as film auditions that include singing. The teaching styles offered in my studio include classical, jazz, musical theater and pop. My teaching philosophy is that the journey to reach the height of technique and professionalism is how the student discovers themselves and their unique voice. I provide the student with the information necessary to guide them along the way. Singing is very personal and students who learn to sing tend to become very vulnerable during the process. Therefore, I believe in creating a safe and enthusiastic environment for my students to explore their creative selves. Enabling a singer to access their inner expression allows them to grow as a singer/artist and a person.

I absolutely recommend Nani and will definitely take her lessons again! I was working on a demo for the 2016 Chinese Voice competition so I figured to get some professional help. Nani turned out to be the perfect teacher for this! She is a professional opera singer and very passionate about singing. She is very friendly and has a great sense of humor. Her teaching methodology is very scientific, and she taught me techniques that I can apply immediately, and I was able to solve the two biggest struggles in singing after 2 lessons with her. I'm looking forward to improve my singing by taking more Nani's lessons in the future! =D

Nani makes me feel really comfortable and excited about working to be my best singer. She has a great grasp of operatic technique but has helped me with Jazz standards and exercises that make my body feel more present, as well as my voice. I'm looking forward to continuing!

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!

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.

Stephanie has been wonderful with my 15 year old son. She has been very clear and has really improved his understanding of singing. She is great.
