About Amber C.

Close
Irvine, CA
View Full Profile

I have been teaching and singing professionally for over 25 years. In the lesson, I always start with warm-up vocalizing. Then, we work on songs, depending on the student and type of voice; and always including music theory, the foundation. Each student is unique; so I customize the lessons and repertoire to suit each student. We work on improving tone and expanding range as well as song interpretation, especially if singing in Italian, German, Spanish or French.

About Amber
I am an experienced, enthusiastic music instructor, who started playing piano around 8 years of age and participated in many musical activities. I received my Bachelor of Music Education from the University of Massachusetts, majoring in Music Education (voice and piano). I have appeared around the world as a soloist singing jazz and pop, including the Blue Note, NYC, and appeared as a guest soloist at the 2000 Southern California Summer Special Olympics. I also participated in ensemble groups such as the Masterworks Chorale in NYC, and the Verdi Opera Chorus of Southern California; and currently I volunteer at the Senior Center leading/accompanying the Sing-Alongs.

Inspired by my love of music, I have been teaching piano and voice for over 25 years from NY to LA and now Orange County. In conjunction with my teaching skills, I have
excellent communication skills, patience and enthusiasm, and work well with children and all ages. I feel that music is an important part of education, and it aids in the development of cognitive and motor skills. And most of all, it is fun and rewarding, and a skill to last a lifetime!

Amber was very knowledgeable. I took some free Youtube tutorials lessons but was not able to tell if I did everything correctly. Amber pointed out when I blew out too much air and showed me how to do it right. I look forward to have more lessons with her.

Upon our first meeting, the instructor gave my 12 year old daughter several breathing and vocalizing exercises to do at home for additional practice. Amber also quickly identified my daughter's vocal range and guided her on how to utilize various techniques to bring out her singing voice properly, patiently explaining the why's and how's behind each technique. Amber is also able to provide criticism/correction in a warm and positive way that the student is not left feeling embarrassed nor discouraged. We are looking forward to more lessons with Ms. Amber!

About Brianna S.

I have taught classical vocal lessons in the past, and I feel they are a strong foundation for any type of singing style. I like to focus on breathing techniques, pronunciation, scales/vocal warm-ups, getting a nice tone, note recognition, head voice vs. chest voice.

About Brianna
Hi, I'm Bri! I'm a graduate of North Central College with a BA in Music (Emphasis in Composition and Percussion) and a minor in History. I absolutely love music, every single aspect of it. I love to make music a part of everybody's lives who want and need it. I want to help you with your musical needs. I have been playing percussion for 19 years, singing for 25, and playing piano for 20 years. I was a member of a recording and performing Chicago band, Oblio and Arrow, where I provided backing vocals and helped with the song arrangements. I am currently a member of Trip City Lights, an LA local funk/soul band, where I provide lead and backing vocals. I also record vocals for different artists hooks, jingles, choruses, and songs (covers and originals). I have also composed/arranged various pieces for ensembles, bands, vocal groups, choirs,
plays, musicals, commercials, etc. I've worked with folks locally in LA, and all over the world. I love what I do!

History has always fascinated me. The way our world has developed and changed and continues to evolve is amazing. Everything can be tied back to the past, and I feel it's important to take a look back, put yourself in that time, and really study how things were to help understand why things are the way they are now.

Crocheting and knitting are a couple of good habits/hobbies I picked up about 10 years ago. I sell scarves online and I'm always working on some sort of project. I will have you knitting and pearling with the best of them!

Music, history, crochet, and knitting....I'm your girl!

I come from a background of not singing, and started singing late in life, when I started college. I understand how difficult it is to jump straight into singing and not know anything! I've been lucky to have experienced amazing and fun teachers that showed me that hard work is rewarding and can also be fun at the same time. Music is an expression of our soul and I love to communicate that to my students, showing them that singing goes above making sound, but it's an art form, and something to be proud of.

About Valentina
I have been singing professionally since 2014, and I've been teaching since 2016. I'm currently pursing my Bachelor of Music at the Bob Cole Conservatory in Long Beach with an emphasis in Vocal Performance. I love teaching all ages and levels, I'm very interested in getting to know your voice! I have a passion for vocal pedagogy and hope to help make you the best singer you can become.
