About Denise
I'€™ve always had a love for music. When I was 8 years old, I taught myself how to read music before my first piano lesson because I was so excited to learn. I continued taking piano lessons throughout my school days and became involved in choir in high school.

When I began college I decided to study business. I auditioned for choir and realized that my dream was to become a music educator. I graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University with a Bachelor of Arts in Music. I studied piano, voice, clarinet, and music education. I had a lot of experience playing the piano and singing that I decided to learn the clarinet and join the concert band so I could have band experience. I was also involved in hand bell choir and continued to perform with the choir after I graduated. After graduating, I taught piano at various private elem
entary schools throughout San Diego. I also had the wonderful experience of being the pianist and vocal soloist at my church. I am a substitute teacher and have the opportunity to work with students from preschool to high school and am able to use my knowledge of each age group and school curriculum in teaching music.

"Great works are performed not by strength, but by perseverance" - Samuel Johnson

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are tailored to each individual student'€™s needs. I think everyone is special and has their own unique way of learning and customized lessons should reflect that. I believe that music theory is important and I include that in lessons. For piano lessons I mainly use Alfred'€™s piano books. In each lesson I will demonstrate the necessary skills in order for the students to feel comfortable in taking the music home to practice. For voice lessons I include vocalizations, vocal technique, and song study.

I want students to have fun with music. I am very patient and I think it'€™s important to encourage and praise students. I hope to instill the desire to learn in each student.

"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." - Eleanor Roosevelt

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in the living room, full size keyboard for piano lessons

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a portable keyboard.

I was inspired to start lessons from watching the last season of American Idol. I started with a 12 pack of online lessons. I was so nervous to sing out load (even in the privacy of my home) but Melody was always positive and encouraging. Even though I didn't practice as much as I should, to my surprise I've gotten better at hitting notes. It's helped even at work (female engineer) for me to easily speak louder and lower when needed. I've been taking lessongs for over a year now and it's still challenging but I always feel awesome afterwards (just like a great workout!) When I listen to singers now I have a whole level of of appreciation. It's like Melody introduced a new language. She's an awesome singer herself and I aspire to sing like her!

Kayla is very informative and descriptive about how the body works in producing sound. She not only showed technique but also gave some easy tips on how to improve. Best of all, I finally understand how a raspy sound can occur without damaging the voice! This is a thing I've found difficulty in finding online, in a way that does not damage your vocal cords. All in all, a fun teacher and I recommend her, especially if you like rock/metal as she seems to have a great knowledge of this form of vocals.

Cape Coral, FL

I've been coaching modern vocal technique and performance technique for a decade. I've helped students prepare for auditions with local bands, musical theater productions, and The Voice. Students learn to think of themselves as athletes, and to maintain a workout regimen that keeps their voices strong and agile. My goal is for each student to have fun while gaining skills and confidence.

All of my students have the option to customize their lessons by adding elements of music theory, keyboard skills, or songwriting to their singing lessons.

About Judy
My primary goal as a music educator is to encourage self-expression and individuality. I have a decade of experience helping modern singers young and old find their personal styles and voices, using science-backed vocal technique and a personal workout routine for every student. Singing is the ultimate form of self-expression and can be ground zero for finding confidence, fulfillment and adventure in life.

I also have 15+ years experience teaching music theory, keyboard skills and songwriting, and have been performing for two decades solo and in cover/function bands, as singer, keyboardist and even trombonist.

I hold a Master of Music in Composition from Virginia Commonwealth University and I am also a Certified Personal Coach.

Judy has been my daughters coach for a few months. My daughter is 13 and not very confident in her skills but Judy has been working with her to boost her self esteem in singing. She has a great sense of humor and knows how to handle kids expertly, and as a result my daughter is gaining self confidence in order to sing in front of others. I highly recommend her!

I would highly recommend Judy to everyone! I've been through different vocal coaches but there's a reason why I've stuck with judy. She's encouraging but tells you the little tweaks you need to fix. She doesn't sugar coat anything but she always tell you in a nice way so no ones feelings get hurt. She encourages me to do better, she's there to talk about what's going on in my life, like she truly cares. She taught me how to acknowledge all the roles singing plays in. I've learned , and have truly become better because of Judy! Highly recommend her all the way!

Everyone can sing! This is the basic truth i have found in teaching many different people all over the world, where people don't think they can sing, but never actually had anyone sit down with them to show them how easy and fun IT can be!

We can all free our own voices to fly where they will, and solid vocal instruction and guidance can help us to allow ourselves this freedom.... My teachers gave this to me! Now i am able to give IT onward to you.... :-)
