Love how she teaches the mechanics of learning to sing properly such as breathing correctly and posture right from the start for a beginner. Fantastic instructor!
Tamura H.
Amazing singng instructor

Crystal has increased my daughter’s self-esteem and expressiveness through song. My daughter is now writing her own poetry and song lyrics, as well as being able to combat her once shyness quality. She loves to perform in front of others now and has a confidence level that amazes me, especially now that she is going into those “teen” years. I think a lot of thanks needs to go to Crystal, for assisting my daughter in reaching her current creative level!
Tamura H.
Great piano instructor

Crystal is an amazing piano instructor. She is patient, understanding and dedicated. My daughter has learned so much from her. My daughter’s love for music has increased immensely since learning how to play the piano. This would never have been able to be accomplished without Crystal’s professional and caring teaching style.

Tone deaf? Nope. I don't believe it. Pitch can be taught. If you think you can't carry a tune in a bucket, just try me! I think you'll be surprised. Ear training is a skill like any other and when you apply yourself and practice, it can be learned. It's also very rewarding! Suddenly you are singing in tune, everyone's eyebrows raise and you feel wonderful. Give it a try!

About Tania

I'm passionate about teaching voice and it shows in my students. My students are touring internationally, signing with management, being played on the radio, participating in national singing competitions, singing for films and audiobooks, being chosen for prestigious training programs and getting

This is my first experience with having singing lessons after many years of doing my own version of "Carpool Karaoke." Tania has been wonderful. She is very encouraging and makes it a safe singing environment for a novice. I have just signed up for 5 more lessons. (And her cats are very cute too.)

A Beginner's Guide to Ukulele Notes [Charts Included]

An excellent starting point for all beginners is to learn their notes on the ukulele. As you learn to navigate the notes on the fretboard, you’ll build an understanding of the basics - so you can start playing tunes in no time! Once you’ve mastered the individual notes, you can use them to build chords, and chords quickly turn into songs.
