I work with beginners through advanced students focusing on proper breathing, diction, voice placement.

About Cindy
Hello, my name is Cindy and I am a vocal and instrumental instructor. I received my BA and MAT degrees from Pepperdine University. I have taught privately for over 25 years in the San Fernando Valley, along with Pasadena and Simi Valley areas. During college I performed in several operas including The Magic Flute and Hansel and Gretel with the Burbank Symphony Orchestra. After college, I was a member of Musical Americans, a select touring group from Southern California under the direction of K. Gene Simmonds that toured South America and Japan. I also served as a minister of music at a local church for several years.

I began playing the piano at the age of 7. My mother and sister were taking lessons and, when they had finished practicing I would go into the piano and play what they had just played. My mother figured that I was th
e one with the talent so I got the lessons. When I was 9, I became interested in the violin. Back in those days, it was required for you to take private lessons if you were going to be in the school orchestra. I started lessons on the violin while continuing lessons on the piano. I began taking voice lessons while in Jr. High and for a while, I took lessons on all three. I was also very involved with my church music department, which was very large and well known in Southern California. During college, I had the opportunity to participate in The Living Christmas Tree . This was a great experience, one I will never forget. I not only sang in the tree but was able to play in the orchestra for a couple of years as well.

Being a classroom teacher for over 30 years, I have had the experience of bringing the joy of music to hundreds of students. I put a strong focus on musical theory so that my students understand not only how to play or sing, but understand the WHY of different musical concepts. Presently I have students attending CSUN majoring in music. I have a love for music that has been with me since the age of 7, when I started taking my first piano lessons. I took private lessons on piano, violin and voice till I graduated from high school, continuing while I earned my BA and MAT degrees. I have experience with students of all ages, ranging from the young kindergarten student to the adult student. I believes that there is a hidden talent in everyone and that if there is a desire to learn, I can teach them!

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are designed to bring a maximum level of enjoyment while giving a strong musical theory foundation. Being a classroom teacher for over 30 years, I understand what a student goes through regarding homework during a week's time. I always take that into consideration when making assignments. I find out what the student's musical likes are and use those in selecting songs to work on with them.I use different curriculum, depending on the needs of the student and the instrument being taught. With the wealth of my experience I can teach and guide the student through any performance and musical interest they may have and bridge the gap between genre's that so many are unable to do.

I teach beginning and intermediate voice, flute, guitar, sax and clarinet. I am able to teach up to the advanced level for violin and piano. I enjoy working with all levels of students, from young children through adults.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living Room, room for parents to wait.

*** Travel Equipment ***
They must have their own instrument. If they are taking piano, I am able to teach them on a keyboard that has at least 4 octaves. I have had great success with working with keyboards, especially with younger students. Students purchase their own materials. I will give you the names of the books and locations where you can buy them.

*** Specialties ***
I am from the old school of thought and teach the basics with a great deal of theory thrown in. My students that have gone on to major in music in college have done very well because of the foundation I have given them.

First time, first day with Cindy. She explains the lesson very well, demonstrates and writes it down for the student to remember during home practice. That is teaching. She knows how to make the student learn.

WOW - you guys read my mind so let me start with saying my teacher Alan is TERRIFIC - and I do mean TERRIFIC - when I first met him I felt so comfortable - his way of teaching is very patient and informative. Alan has a method of teaching that allows you to absorb valuable information while learning a skill. He makes the lessons simple and fun. Alan gives you the opportunity to learn at your own pace and that's wonderful for mature students that wish to learn something new. If I could - I would let everyone know that there is a chance to experience your musical dream - Just take a chance as a matter of fact take a Lesson.

I teach vocal health above all. This is key to longevity in a personal or professional career. I also coach students in vocal stylizing in a variety of genres. I teach students to sing in the right tone, quality, with appropriate ad-libs, riffs and runs to make their voice stand out and shine. I want my students to be versatile and well-rounded, finding "their" voice and being able to fit it into whatever style of music they like.

It's fun. It's entertaining. It's informative. I'm Christopher Nanny and I want to teach you to sing what you want to sing! Each lesson plan is tailored to meet the personality of the student. Whether you're pursuing a Grammy award or a pitch-perfect rendition of 'Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star,' I'll listen to your goals and lay out a plan to get you where you want to go. When you take singing lessons from me, you'll grasp the technical, creative, and practical sides of singing and all the while have fun doing so!

About Christopher
Five words that best describe myself. 1. Optimistic 2. Outgoing 3. Forgiving 4. Funny 5. Talented. I am an outgoing musician who for more than 20 years have devoted my life to the training, mentoring and coaching of people of all ages in the world of piano, voice and musical theatre.

As a musician and singer, Chris has performed for Presidents and heads of state, live televised events, athletic venues, Disney Parks, as well as many others. Chris was born and raised in the small rural town of Dinwiddie, Virginia. It was there that he discovered his talent and love of performing for audiences, getting lead roles in musicals and quickly becoming a force to be reckoned in the Central Virginia region. By the time Chris went to college, he had earned the reputation of being a successful pianist, vocal director arranger and performance coach.
His comedic quick wit and ability to relate to all ages made him the go to guy for all things music.

Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I can teach students to read music and pursue musical excellence, to learn how to play classical and contemporary music using a variety of sheet music, chord charts and more!
