Hey there!! My name is Jameson and I'm a professional recording artist (singer, songwriter, and producer) based in Los Angeles, CA. I'm also an experienced musician and live performer with over 20 years of study and industry experience. Lessons in my studio are about so much more than just learning to sing a song or analyze music**. Students are instilled with technique, work ethic, real-world business knowledge, and confidence so they can truly accomplish whatever they set their minds to. We go deep focusing on how to develop new mental and physical habits that can help you better express yourself. Every student gets a handcrafted curriculum that is specifically catered to meet their goals and needs, and of course, that I hope is fun too! Singing is one of the most vulnerable things a person can do!–which is why it's so important to me that I provide not only criticism and critique, but also praise and validation. I've learned that we do our best work when we can feel hopeful, proud, and supported in our individuality. We can only improve by putting ourselves out there, which means you failing (a lot!). From lesson one, I will begin instilling you with knowledge and confidence, while always providing you opportunities to build up your independence. I will be right there with you in the trenches, celebrating your wins with you, calling you out on your excuses, and reminding you to recognize both the big and small changes as you move closer to your goals. I generally work with adults and teens (ages 16 and up) who are looking to build a career in the music and entertainment industry and/or have a serious passion for music. I've worked with students from ages 6-65, with a huge variety of backgrounds and interests–from complete beginners with no musical background or training to professional performing artists. Singing is a skill, and any skill can be learned with the right time and attention. If you show up once a week and put in the work, I guarantee that you will not only see improvement in your technical skills, but will also become a more confident singer within the first month of starting lessons. So what are you waiting for?? Let's do this! Jameson PS. I also offer the option of accompanying my students on the keyboard during lessons at no additional cost. **Reading music and music theory knowledge is useful, but not required.
Beginner- Exploring the vast canon of musical theater to find your personal niche, beginning singing technique appropriate to show tunes, and learning how to let go of self-consciousness so it's fun to sing in front of others! Intermediate- Building your repertoire and audition options, adding skills to your technique, learning how to appropriately act the song. Advanced- Refining skills and technique, focus on performance.
Singers--and those who want to be--need opportunities to sing! Some are ready to shine and just need training. Others need training AND encouragement in an environment that feels safe and private, while they gain confidence, which slowly effects the sounds they make, allowing them to be ready to shine. Teresa specializes in working with students of all ages and stages who know the styles of music they want to explore and master. Her passions as a teacher include preparing students to pursue their musical interests armed with technique, music-reading capabilities, and the "building blocks" of music: knowledge of functional music theory and how to use it.
I've worked with students who came in struggling to find pitch and they've left with powerful voices. I've worked with professionals looking to open a new opportunity and they did. This isn't rocket science, there's no secret formula. But, I do work very hard to help you discover the unique and powerful qualities of your voice. This and proper technique are key. You can include other instruments in these sessions.
Students will be lead through weekly exercises to strengthen vocal stamina and breath control. Classical technique will be instilled with positive reinforcement, practice and correct repertoire choices. Elise is ready to help students find their inner voice and learn the magic of opera!
If you are ready to start taking your music skills SERIOUSLY then stop wasting time and money on teachers who don't fully understand the instrument or subject matter themselves. My name is Russ and I have been playing guitar professionally for 20 years and teaching music and producing records for over 15. I have a Platinum #1 Billboard charting record under my belt, worked with artists such as Mac Miller, Sean Kingston, Red Velvet, Lifehouse and more; and have composed music to 100s of your favorite TV shows!

PLEASE NOTE: I DO NOT TEACH REGULAR SINGING LESSONS! I DO NOT TEACH VOCAL PRODUCTION, BREATH CONTROL, RANGE INCREASE OR ALL THE OTHER TYPICAL THINGS THAT SINGING TEACHERS FOCUS ON. What I DO help with are the SUPPORTIVE SKILLS aspects of singing only. Many other singing teachers send me their students for help with these difficult issues because they are my field of expertise. These include pitch control (if you sing flat), how to sing harmony, self-accompanying techniques, sight singing and performance anxiety.
