*** Lesson Details ***
I am pretty easygoing, because I realize that students probably have a lot of homework, jobs, children to raise, etc. I believe that music should be enjoyable as well as educational! I also know that when a student practices, it heightens their enjoyment of music because it is far more fulfilling. I can guarantee that if you work with me as hard as I work with a student, you will feel excellent about your progress and ability! I have experience teaching people on the autism spectrum and those with Down Syndrome.

I have a BA in Music Education with an emphasis in voice. I've been teaching for 17 years in classroom and one-on-one settings. Other places where I have taught are: Calvary Chapel Downey School, Dexter Music Academy, and ABC Unified School District. I've been complimented on my ability to teach in a way that makes my students learn very quickly. I was trained in the classical and pop/rock genres. I've toured with choirs throughout China, and the United States (including Carnegie Hall), and I have also toured with rock/pop bands in Spain, Mexico, Central America, Peru, and throughout the U.S.A.

I am also currently the lead singer (also playing guitar & piano) for the band Hello Human. I've worked with amazing musicians including Michael Thompson (guitarist for Michael Jackson, Christina Aguilera), and John Robinson (drummer for Quincy Jones, Elton John). I've also had the honor of working with Wyn Davis (producer of No Doubt, Sublime).

My vocal recordings/original songs are on television show The Young & The Restless (“Dreamers” June 11th episode 11449, “High Tops” June 6th episode 11447).

My vocal recordings/original songs are currently on KWAVE 107.9 and have been on Alcoa Tennessee'™s Love 89.1, Refuge, CSN, WCTL, and on hundreds of other radio stations.

Every student is a unique person who deserves a lesson customized to their individual needs. Each of my students prospers in an atmosphere of patience and encouragement. While the lessons are fun and enjoyable, the serious student will be supported in the development of skills leading to a rewarding career. And the more casual students will grow in an appreciation of music that will always enrich their lives.

I begin each voice lesson with a warm-up to prepare the student for their session. Next, we do a series of exercises specially designed to help each individual develop their skill in a way that best fits them. We then work on a piece of their choice for the remainder of the lesson, perfecting their technique and helping them become performance ready. I teach with patience and fun because I feel that this is the key to achieving goals and inspiring a good habit of practice.

About Jessie
Thank you for your interest in lessons! I hope to help you achieve your goals and improve your skills, whether you're looking for music lessons, or help in math. Every student is a unique person who deserves a lesson customized to their individual needs. Each of my students prosper in an atmosphere of patience and encouragement. While the lessons are fun and enjoyable, the serious student will be supported in the development of skills leading to a rewarding career, and the more casual students will grow in an appreciation of knowledge that will enrich their lives.

Experience:

I received my bachelor's degree in music with an emphasis on vocal performance at the University of Redlands in 2011 (which I attended on a music talent scholarship), and am now an active performer in Los Angeles, CA. I have been tutoring and teaching privat
e lessons for almost 10 years, and currently have over 40 active students.

I have played leading roles in several operas and musicals in Southern California, including Gianni Schicchi, Die Fledermaus, La Boheme (DTL nominee), The Impresario, The Grand Duke, Patience (DTL award), Cosi fan tutte, Little Women, Seussical, and many more. I have also appeared in several concerts, opera scenes, competitions (winning music scholarships and theater awards), and worked as a singer in churches, restaurants, and in pop bands. I continue to stay active in the performance industry, and I could never live without it!

With this experience under my belt, I feel a desire to pass on my knowledge to students. I carry a strong passion to help people develop their abilities and make them their own. I truly believe that if someone wants something out of life they will achieve it with dedication, perseverance, confidence, and by having FUN doing it!

LET'S MAKE MUSIC!

About Cynthia
I received my Bachelor of Music degree, with a specialization in vocal performance, in 2010. In the past 10 years, I've toured Europe with various ensembles, recorded both solo and choral work, and taught throughout Los Angeles. I have also served as cantor and guest conductor at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels.

My training has been focused on classical and operatic repertoire, but I have mostly taught non-classical voice students. Regardless of a student's age or goals, the overarching theme in my lessons is using your voice efficiently. And of course being a good musician.

That being said, I'm not a snob about music choices. As a teacher, I'd rather you sing what you love and sing it well than sing an "assignment." I'm not here to impose anything on anyone. I just want you to love music as much as I do.

*** Lesson Detail
s ***
I will tailor my lessons to each student, depending on their age, level of experience, and goals. Ultimately, I want all of my students to gain a deeper appreciation for singing, regardless of what they intend on doing with it. I'm very patient and understanding and I try to keep my lessons fun!

Some of the aspects that I cover with almost all of my students are: vocal and performance technique, intonation, diction, genre-specific styles, breathing, relaxation technique, and basic music theory (where applicable). Another important aspect: learning to learn music on your own (if you can't already).

A voice lesson for beginning and intermediate students would most likely go as follows: (1) breathing exercises, (2) warm-up, (3) brief review of elements discussed in previous week's lesson, (4) sing through repertoire (while paying attention to technique, diction, etc.), (5) begin working on new repertoire, to be practiced for next week's lesson (rhythm, diction, melody, etc.)

We can take lessons as fast/slow as is comfortable for you. This is just an example of what a typical lesson would be like for someone interested in having some solid repertoire under their belt.
