I've never had a dance lesson before and was pretty nervous about this but Tanya made me feel comfortable and I eventually relaxed and enjoyed myself!

Inspiration, motivation and dedication are three important skills to have while learning dance. I begin by figuring out what has inspired my students to start dancing, what motivates them, and then dedicate each lesson to guiding them in the right direction to become the best dancer they can be. I have been teaching for 7 years and love watching students grow and fall more in love with dance. I am experienced in ballet, jazz, hip hop, jazz fusion, contemporary, lyrical, musical theatre and ballroom. I look forward to sharing my love for dance with you!

I'm extremely new to ballet and dance in general (for reference I'm 16). Briana was very patient and an amazing teacher! Very friendly and welcoming while still being very professional. It's great to get the exact corrections I need without feeling bad about it and yet still work on it until proper. Very happy and pleased!
Taylor C.
My daughter had a great first session. She identified my daughters areas of weakness and began immediately to help improve them. Looking forward to our next session.
Ronna
I am already worried that if I tell people how amazing Briana is that she will get too booked up for me :) She is a great instructor with a huge heart. Loved it.

As a classically trained vocalist with a Master's in Voice, I can help you to develop a solid, healthy technique in your singing. I have experience teaching beginning to advanced students, so all experience levels are welcome!

I want to be able to help you achieve your personal singing goals in a relaxed, fun, and healthy way. Improving musicianship skills like ear training and sight reading are incorporated into the lesson, as well as practice techniques that will help you to see dramatic improvement in short periods of time.

I studied Voice at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM), where I received my master's degree. I sing full-time with the LA Master Chorale, am a session singer for movies and TV, and perform with opera companies throughout California. Read my full bio for more info.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions!

Jessie Shulman is a fantastic voice teacher. I've studied with her for 2 years. She is professional, knowledgeable, and crafts our lessons around the skills I need to work on, and helps me select repertoire to learn that utilizes those skills. She easily identifies what I'm struggling with and patiently guides me how to improve. She gives wonderful tips on how to stay vocally healthy.

I've made enormous progress in my vocal performance. I highly recommend Jessie for voice lessons.
