Brad Chapman is professional, funny, able and exact in helping you achieve what you need before recording. As my vocal Pre producer, he helped me achieve what I wanted, the feel, of each song to communicate that on the recording for my audience. While I did not receive a GRAMMY nomination my CD did make the first ballot, semifinals and it received great reviews from trade magazines in the US and globally. Hey. Wonderful person to work with and I highly recommend him.

If you are preparing for an audition, I can help you with your song selection and of course we will also work on those songs to prepare you for the audition.

About Radina
I am a dedicated vocal coach, musician, singer, songwriter and founder of "Vocals on Stage".
At the age of 6 I started playing Cello and discovered my passion for music but my main focus quickly became the instrument voice. I studied for years at the Unique Voice Studios - a private school for contemporary singing in Vienna and have studied Jazz vocals at the Schubert Conservatory in Vienna as well as private vocal coaches Rocio Guitard, Romana Caren Lakinger, Sandy Cressman, Monika Ballwein and others.
I have a Master of Science Degree from the University of Vienna and speak English, German, Bulgarian and French.

Since 2005 I have been studying and teaching "Mix" - a vocal technique which teaches students how to transition smoothly between chest voice and head voice and receive the full benefits of “both worlds”: the natural and p
owerful sound of the chest voice, and the beauty and range of the head voice.
I teach contemporary music, Pop, Rock, Soul, Blues, Jazz, R'n'B, Country and Musical.
For the past 8 years I have been working as a vocal instructor in Vienna, San Francisco and Los Angeles, giving private and group lessons.

*** Lesson Details ***
During a lesson we will work half of the time on technical exercises and half of the time on a song which the student can choose or I will make a recommendation.
All lessons are recorded and given to the student to conveniently practice at home between each lesson.

Music styles thought: Pop, Rock, Musical Theater, Soul, Country, R'n'B, Blues, Jazz

Working with Radina is such a pleasure! She is extremely patient and kind. I truly enjoy the different methods she provides to help me improve my voice. Another great thing is her recorded lessons. I can always go back and review our lesson and go over things I needed help with using the recordings. She's also incredibly flexible with my hectic schedule, which is such a huge plus! I highly recommend her. Thank you so much for everything, Radina. You're amazing!

This is it!

I've been taking lessons with Radina for a few months and I'm super happy with the progress I've made so far. I didn't know anything about head voice, chest voice, mix and now it's all starting to make sense. I'm not afraid to sing higher notes which I always wanted to be able to do!

Radina is a highly professional and nice teacher, she really understands what is going on in a singers voice and mind and she hears everything.

I always look forward to my next lesson :)

Los Angeles, CA

View Full Profile

Although I teach the same fundamental technique for all kinds of singing, I am well versed in the unique stylistic needs of Broadway singing. I use simple exercises to teach my students how to expand their range, build strong breath control, and learn how to belt in a healthy way. I also specialize in acting for singers. When working on musical theatre, I challenge my students to study and identify with their character in order to produce stronger singing and a stronger performance.

About Emily
I teach to help people find their inner rock star. Everyone can sing! But for many people, fear is an obstacle. I know firsthand how much courage it takes to stand up and sing. I teach to help others experience the same healing I have experienced through music. My approach to singing is informed by my education and years of performance experience. I teach my students how to embrace their fears and move through them to the other side. I also facilitate a supportive student/teacher relationship based upon mutual respect and kindness. Most importantly, I encourage my students to trust themselves and their innate musical gifts. This develops their self confidence and ultimately leads them to their purest, most authentic sound.

I also teach the more experienced singer how to fine tune their instrument. Everyone can learn to sing with ease.
I understand the frustration that comes from wanting to sing without tension or feeling restricted in range or ability. I spent years feeling unsure about my vocal abilities until I learned how to develop a truly solid vocal foundation. I can teach you the tools that I continue to use for my own singing today.

I lived and breathed music and singing throughout my childhood, and I continue to today. I have over fifteen years of classical music training and performance experience. I attended California State University Northridge where I studied classical voice, art song, and opera performance. Since attaining my Bachelor of Music in Vocal Arts I have performed opera and musical theatre professionally across Los Angeles. I have since left opera performance to focus on my true musical passions: pop, R&B, jazz, musical theatre, and teaching.

**Lesson Details**
I tailor my teaching to each student's needs and desires. I teach all levels of singing, child to adult, beginner to advanced. If you are a beginner, I will quickly help you understand and access your instrument. If you are a more experienced singer, I will help you identify your opportunities for growth and we start from there. I focus on releasing tension and building a strong core foundation. You will learn how to develop consistent breath control, expand your range, and grow your voice into a powerful and beautiful sound! **Please note: I am not a trained pianist or accompanist. I focus on vocal technique, vocal production, and vocal expression. I do not accompany my students on the piano when we work on songs/repertoire.**

**Studio Equipment**
Piano
Acoustic guitar
Music stand
ZoomH2 microphone and recording device
Access to a wide selection of popular, classical, and musical theatre sheet music

**Specialties**
I teach the same technique for all styles of singing - pop, R&B, jazz, gospel, musical theatre, and classical. I help my students make minor changes for each style, but the core foundational technique remains the same. I specialize in breath support, vocal chord closure, range expansion, vocal register negotiation, body alignment, relieving tension, healthy belting, emotional support, and acting for singers.

As a college student in a women's chorus, I have already learned how to sing chorus-style at school. This summer I took lessons with Emily in order to gain technique and confidence in more contemporary singing. In addition to providing a flexible schedule and an accommodating environment in her home, Emily worked with my specific needs and taught me a lot in a short amount of time. She does a great job of explaining how sound resonates within your mouth and articulating how to "tune your instrument" so that your voice travels freely and sounds strong. Three months ago I had no idea how to belt, and now I have a pretty solid understanding of how it works. If you are practicing a specific song, Emily can communicate the specific techniques used by the artist, as well as help you decide what works well for your own voice. I couldn't imagine a better experience this summer than learning from Emily.

I'd never taken vocal lessons before I met Emily so I had no idea what to expect.
My boyfriend starting working with her on his voice and vocal skills for about a year, and I noticed very significant changes in his voice fairly quickly. He sounded better every week, so I decided to start taking lessons as well.
I've always enjoyed singing, and used to sing socially when I was younger, but my job schedule really didn't allow for that anymore. To invest time and energy into myself, I decided to start singing again, and Emily is ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! She is very patient, and teaches a great technique - she explains everything is very tangible terms. She is also very intuitive and knows when you need a little push to move past any insecurities or fears that you may not hit a note. To round the experience out, she is a very fun person! After 7 lessons with her, I can very honestly say that I can sing much more freely and always look forward to my next lesson.
I cannot sing her praises enough, and highly recommend you schedule a lesson with her.

Profile_51489_pi_ELENA-%20P%26K%20SHOOT
Tarzana, CA
View Full Profile

I offer Broadway vocal training with focus of belting technique and repertoire. Voice is my first instrument and I teach all levels. The vocal technique I teach is drawn from the Bel Canto Tradition and tailored to fit more modern styles of music with emphasis on posture, muscle relaxation and breathing technique among fun and interesting vocal exercises!

About ELENA
Hello!
Music is my life and my biggest passion. I've been a working musician and a teacher for several years and there's nothing more rewarding than sharing all I've learned so far with my students, to nurture their goals and aspirations and to make them aware of the great instrument they already possess. Every year I plan and host two wonderful recitals for my students, so that they can experience and share their progress with family and friends.

Here's more about me and my education:
I was born and raised in Italy and have been singing since I was a child but started a formal training during my teenage years with a private coach. During college, while studying Psychology at the University of Florence, I attended 2 different private music schools in Florence and Bologna, since it was not possible at the time to study music in Colleg
e. There I kept studying vocal technique, solfege, classical guitar and music harmony.
I moved to LA 11 years ago and attended Musician's Institute earning a diploma in Vocal Studies and Vocal Performance and then I attended a Composition & Songwriting Program at UCLA for 2 years. I refined my vocal technique studying at Berkley College of Music for a summertime in a special program for Jazz Vocalists and I have been an Alexander Technique's student for now 10+ years.
I am a performing artist, I sing and teach privately for a living and, on the side, I help an Opera Touring company promote their tours. I have performed all over the country in some beautiful venues such as the Getty Center and Pantages Theater to name a few. Guitar is my second instrument but I accompany students with my piano during vocal exercises. My personal style of singing is modern, not operatic, I love many kinds of music but especially pop, jazz, and musical theater.

***Lessons Details***

**Singing: Teaching Adults**
There are two sides of singing that I like to work on with my students.
The first is vocal technique, which is first and foremost the study of how to use our instrument, our whole body, in the best and most useful way to avoid strain ad create beautiful sounds. I believe that when we relax and use the right posture, meaning the most natural one, then our bodies and our breathing mechanisms act as they are supposed to, and singing magically happens at its best. When we learn to use our bodies without strain, the right "singing" muscles are automatically engaged and exercised and we feel at ease. So I try to encourage a non-forceful way to use diaphragmatic breathing, which I have learned by studying Alexander Technique, which is a technique that teaches people how to stop using unnecessary levels of muscular and mental tension during any activity, especially during an artistic performance of any kind.
I try to notice bad singing habits the student may have formed throughout his/her life, (hopefully none!), and gently help them correct them. The vocal exercises I use are drawn from the Bel Canto tradition, a classical tradition, but I mix them with more modern vocal exercises to develop popular techniques like "belting" for example.
The second side of singing is simply to pay attention to song interpretation, to convey the message we would like to convey. I encourage the student to choose songs to work on they truly love, and I welcome any style of music. I give the students vocal exercises CDs to help them practice at home.

**Singing: Teaching Children**
What I described above is also true for teaching children, however I like to teach them "by ear" with simple vocal exercises and vocal games at the beginning of the lesson and try to ease them into the sound they naturally make. I like to create a positive environment in which the student can feel successful about even small achievements, whether it is standing in a relaxed way or having practiced the beginning of an exercise or part of a song. To help the student practice at home and keep the motivation alive without feeling overwhelmed I record each lesson (or let them record it) and give them the accompaniment for the song of their choice so they can have fun at home.

*** GUITAR ***
I teach young children using fun songs, games and classical guitar technique. I also teach adults and specialize in contemporary guitar. I welcome many styles of music, pop, rock as well as folk genres of Latin America. I emphasize good posture, tone and musicality, and always a high level of enjoyment with the process!

*** RECITALS ***
I plan and host 2 wonderful Recitals a year, one in January and one in June. I encourage all my students to participate, no matter how they may feel about their instrument level and preparation. Working towards a performance is one of the most effective ways to solidify your ever growing skill!

*** Studio Equipment ***
For students who come to my home studio, there is private guest parking right outside my building, in a gated complex of buildings and in a safe neighborhood just north of the 101. My studio is conveniently located just a few blocks from the freeway entrance. I have a comfortable sofa for parents and siblings to attend the lessons and a keyboard to use for accompaniment. Also, I periodically offer my students the chance to record one song in my studio, equipped with nice microphones and a professional recording system.

*** Travel Equipment ***
For singing lessons I bring my small and light master-keyboard and laptop or I can use the student piano/keyboard. For children's lesson I ask my students to bring a notebook to keep track of practice assignments.

*** Specialties ***
Music theory and Songwriting. Stage performance and how to feel comfortable on stage. Additionally I teach vocal jazz improvisation, Broadway singing and Italian song repertoire.

Gabriel is an incredible accent teacher. He has his own technique and all I can say is that it REALLY works. I tried other accent coachs before him and always felt some part of the work wasn't fully done. I felt like they were only showing me what I should be doing. That is not the case with Gabriel. He is detail oriented he has a superman ear, he is very good at explaining what is the mistake you are making and how you can correct it, giving precise exercises and techniques to fix it. I have people asking me if I moved to the States when I was 5 when in reality I moved here less than a year ago :) Can't beat that! A part from his professionalism, he is kind, funny, flexible. I totally recommend him!

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

I am a modern voice instructor in that not only do I have the experience and education to teach singing, I also am equipped with today's tools of writing, recording, and production. I find that many of my students today not only want to sing but also want to learn how to share their voice. What separates me from other voice teachers is that I am able to start with a student from the ground floor with technique then help them discover their artistry then help them share it with the world. Whether they want to sing at a music venue, become a YouTube musician, sing on a TV show, or learn to create their own songs at a pro level, I can take their musical journey full circle.

About Alex
Hello prospective students!
I am a kind, reliable and patient person as well as an accomplished musician, teacher and producer. My experience singing and teaching covers virtually any style including pop, jazz, rock, rnb, musical theater and more. I’ve been very lucky to have amazing teachers in my life from Berklee to Julliard who not only have empowered me with the skillset to succeed in music but also the freedom to be myself. My aim is to continue this tradition by enriching the lives of my students with knowledge and a role model as well as having fun in the process. Thank you for your consideration.

ABOUT ME:
I have over twenty years experience singing. My background in music performance is very rich. I started when I was four in church choir then moved on to starring in the school musicals then to having my own rock band that wo
n a statewide rock band competition and played a major festival.

Following High School, I got accepted in the prestigious Berklee College of Music as a voice principal. There I was able to study with some of the top teachers in the world from Janice Pendarvis to Donna McElroy and others. In addition to taking lessons on voice, I also studied music production and ultimately graduated in 2014 with a degree in Contemporary Writing and Production. Now with Berklee under my belt, I was able to sing, write, and produce professional quality songs.

Following music school, I moved to LA to further my music career. Since being here, I made it to the judges round of America’s Got Talent where I sang in front of 4,000 people including Simon Cowell. I also linked up with Warner Brothers Entertainment as a writer and producer and have finished three contracts for them. One of my originals songs was recently featured on “The Real” on BET four times.
I also had the privilege of traveling the world as a singer with Carnival Cruise Lines singing all genres of music from Motown to rock to the music of today.

Never have I felt more certain about a teacher than with Alex. Not only are his voice skills amazing, but his teaching style is friendly and encouraging, and I felt very comfortable pushing myself to try new techniques in front of him. I really recommend him as a teacher to any new students or anyone trying to improve, because you’re learning from one of the best.

Let's get you prepped for that audition or ready to kill it at karaoke next weekend! I have been singing, acting, and playing music (violin, viola) for over 18 years. My teaching technique focuses on musicality with an emphasis on healthy and safe vocal training. I have a degree in Theatre, so students have the option of working on character and acting moments with me. I'm able to teach music notation and additional music theory for those who want it, and I provide a safe space for both beginning and intermediate students who want to further themselves and take their voices higher!

About Leota
I'm a working actor, singer, and teacher in Los Angeles. I have a bachelor's degree in Theater from The University of California, Irvine, with an emphasis in Musical Theater.

While film is the focus in the city of angels, my passion for musical theater is still alive! I've performed in theater and musical theater shows across the globe, including Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland. I have also trained in music improv at UCB in Los Angeles.

No matter the level, I can teach any student to be more expressive and comfortable with their voice. Each week we will work on techniques to improve voice placement, as well as proper breathing so you don't hurt your voice even when you're sick! Whether you want to improve your high range into the classical soprano or coloratura or find
your big belt, I will get you there in a healthy and safe way! (Don't worry Gentlemen, I can get you to sing high too!).

I work with students of all ages, backgrounds and levels. Many of my students are actors with no vocal background, and some of my students are classical or operatic singers who want to work on acting and expressing themselves musically for a better overall performance. Whatever your goals are, we will accomplish them!

Leota knows the tricks to enhance your vocal technique to it's fullest...less than a minute into our first session she was already making me sound better, and it went on from there. She has a grounded honest professional approach to voice coaching, and can help you achieve both classical and modern sounds. She will find different ways of explaining what to go for if you are having trouble picking up a concept. I had taken regular of voice lessons years ago, and a session with Leota, was teaching me new things, reinforcing proper techniques, and remembering my voice's potential.
