Long Beach, CA

View Full Profile

My favorite thing as a child was watching musicals, especially the classic ones. I performed in many musicals when I was younger and absolutely love this style of music.

About Glynis
Glynis has been reading music since before she knew how to read words. Her mother started teaching her piano lessons at age 3, and she started taking voice lessons at age 7. She learned from an early age to practice every day. She has taught all levels and ages of piano and voice for many years. Glynis specializes in jazz voice, but has a very strong classical and musical theatre background. She is an arranger, composer, educator, and singer. She received her AA in Professional Music from SWCC (school for music vocations), her BA in Jazz Studies: Vocal Performance at CSU Sacramento, and her Masters in Jazz Studies: Vocal Performance at the Bob Cole Conservatory at CSU Long Beach. She teaches college and high school vocal jazz ensembles as well as many private students in many areas of music.
*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching philosoph
y is to have a safe, positive, fun, and effective learning environment for all of my students. I believe it is important to be a well rounded musician, therefore I love my students to have a solid understanding of what they are doing. I strongly encourage all of my students to learn theory along with piano or voice, so they understand what they are doing. Each student is unique, therefore each student has a different lesson plan. I do expect that my students will practice during the week in order to grow, since this helps them reach their goals. I do let students pick most their own repertoire, since it is very important for them to be motivated and enjoy their assignments during the week. I can teach from early Baroque music to modern day and everything in between. Music is expression, therefore I believe it is very important for my students to love what they are working on.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons are in my house with my upright Yamaha piano.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring a keyboard, but it is necessary to have a piano or keyboard at home to pracitce on if you are a piano student.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz voice, with a strong background in classical and musical theatre. I also specialize in piano, music theory, songwriting and arranging.

Glynis is a wonderful young lady and a wonderful voice helper. I have to stop for health reasons. I am having surgery and just a few hours after our first lesson I had taken a hard fall and at 60yrs young they are all hard falls. I am hurt and not doing well. Glynis is a special young lady you and anyone from 6 to 76 will enjoy spending time with.

Learn to sing with ease and be audition ready and confident!

About Carol
I have taught voice for over twenty years. I studied music at University of California, Santa Barbara, where I received my B.A. I currently work as a professional singer for various local opera companies, music theater groups, churches and temples. I am principal soprano for Opera A La Carte and have also soloed with Repertory Opera Company, Redlands Bowl Festival, Laguna Beach Chorale and Celestial Opera Company. I have worked extensively in Los Angeles schools performing musical assemblies for students in elementary and middle grades through Southland Opera, LA Opera and Guild Opera of Southern California. My teaching experience includes private voice lessons and master classes at Idyllwild School for the Arts.

*** Lesson Details ***
I emphasize breathing techniques to free up the voice to expand your range and ease of singing. In
the lesson, we start with simple warm ups and vocalizes and then apply techniques to the songs you want to sing. I realize each student is different and I customize the lesson to the student's particular needs. I specialize in classical and music theater, however the basics of singing apply to all styles of music. In addition to working on breathing and technique for singing, we'll also focus on interpretation of the songs you are working on as well as how to overcome performance nervousness. Most students find that they are able to sing with more freedom, less tension and will have more confidence as they progress.

I also teach beginning piano, using the John W. Schaum series.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in the main room, upright piano

*** Travel Equipment ***
They need to provide a piano or keyboard if I am going to their home.
I have a piano in my home.

*** Specialties ***
I work on using the breath as a fundamental technique for singing. Singing should never hurt. I use a lot of imagery to achieve freedom in singing.

About Rosita
I have been singing and studying voice for over 23 years since I was a child! I hold a Bachelors from Musicians Institute and other accomplished degrees from American Musical Dramatic Academy to conclude my quest for vocal excellence and the ability to sing in multiple languages ( English, Spanish, Japanese and Italian) I have been lucky enough to study with some of the top teachers in the country and now I bring the experience I have gained directly to you!

I am proud to share my student's vast array of musical successes. From being cast on short anime films and musicals to being accepted into prestigious performing arts academies to conquering the Karaoke scene. My passion for multiple languages and love of music is the desire driving me to share the gifts for teaching young children to open the door to their own musical abilities an
d hidden artistic desires. I am currently writing a musical which will be debuting in 2020. I'm currently the vocal coach/Trainer and choir director at Iglesia Elim Central.

I will make sure my students have fun and help them get in the right track to their musical goals.

Also, I constantly upload videos on Singing, The Spanish Language, and Japanese! So keep Checking in! It ranges on tips and answering the most common questions on those particular subjects!

Also There are discounted rates for worship teams and church choirs. For more information please contact me through the "Ask a Question feature"

*** Lesson Details ***
I do my absolute best to create a positive atmosphere for my students. Even when the students feel frustrated or stressed, it is important to inspire them and give them the fuel that they need. Though I am strict when it comes to homework and their about their studies. Every lesson at the beginning I will review what we learned previously and test them.
then begin with proper breathing technique exercises, the cornerstone of all vocals. We move on to vocal exercises to condition the voice. Then we work on the songs that you are eager to sing!

I will use a piano when doing vocal warm ups and conditioning exercises. Students that play other instruments and accompany themselves when performing (such as a guitar) are encouraged to bring that instrument to their lessons. My goal is for them to gain the knowledge that they need to help reach their artistic goals.
With all my lessons every student will be taught a basic run down of Music Theory. My students will always progress in what they do. They will have the discipline that they need and yet have fun and be filled with inspiration. Which is the most important thing, to be Inspired to do better.

*** Studio Equipment ***
iMac, condensing mic...performing mic, keyboard, mixer...living room of apartment.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I do have a portable keyboard. Though I do expect the student to have their own recording device and karaoke tracks. At Home I do have a studio, and if the students has an iPod or an Mp3 player I can attach it to a device where all of us can hear the tracks. I do have a recording studio as well.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Musical Theatre, and Pop rock genres. When I teach my students I always have them learn a song of another language whether it's Spanish or Japanese. It helps with diction when they learn a song outside the English Language. Also It helps them to learn another Language at the same time. Also I give them a little anatomy class when they are learning how to sing. I give them a model of the vocal Chords and different areas of the Larynx and which part works for the chest voice and the head voice.

About Carl
I am very high level, but I also love working with beginners.
I have studied all the major singing teachers of the last 250 years, and my book, "Sing Batter Fast", includes everything I have learned from them, plus my own singing and teaching experience.

During your first lesson I will do a computer analysis of your voice. I find out what your goals are in singing, what your favorite kinds of music are, and I take you in the direction you want to go and show you how to get there in the shortest possible time.

Think you're the only one who feels that terrifying nervousness? Most everyone does, including the biggest stars. The four books I've written on singing are entitled, "SING BETTER FAST", complete vocal technique in brief, "HOW TO CONQUER NERVOUSNESS FOR SINGERS" in which I'll teach you to not only handle, but direct extrem
e nervousness into your singing, making your performance soar. I've also written, "HOW TO GET STANDING OVATIONS FOR SINGERS" to teach you to drive your audience to their feet for a standing ovation, and "ADVANCED SINGING", all available on Amazon.

I always record my students so that they know how they sound to others. I can make a CD of them singing to background music if they wish, included in the cost of the lessons for no additional charge.

Learn to sing beautifully, and most important, emotionally. Learn the parts of your vocal instrument, How each works, How they work together. Develop Breath support (80% of singing). Learn "The Singer's Formant", that "ringing" sound of professionals. Learn learn about Resonance, Overtones, Vibrato, How to sing high notes, Learn the "singing vowels", and more.

I would rather teach singing than eat chocolate, and if you knew how much I like chocolate, you'd know my passion for teaching singing. I've been studying voice since third grade, and singing and teaching singing for eighteen years.

I've had nine singing teachers myself, so I know just how you feel. I get you comfortable, and I listen closely to what you want to do and where you want to go with your singing voice.

My students learn all the important aspects of singing right away, rather than drawing them out over time.

I teach beginner, intermediate, advanced, and professional students of all ages.

I teach all styles of singing, including pop, blues, gospel, classical voice, rock, jazz, scat singing, belting, country and western, and rap.

I teach singing in English, Italian, Spanish, and German.

My Bachelor's and Master's Degrees are from California State University Dominguez Hills.

Put your singing voice in my hands. You'll love what happens.

*** Lesson Details ***
My introductory class includes a computer analysis of your singing voice, then describes the main parts of your vocal instrument, how each works, and how they work together. It teaches you what a song is, and how to sing a song well right away.

During the first lesson I record every student and play it back, both for computer analysis, and also so the student can hear how they sound to others. Remember the first time you heard yourself in a recording and said, "That's not me!" I'll explain that to you, and why it's so important to record yourself and listen to your recordings.

Your lessons are designed toward YOUR goals and desires in singing, and include specific guides for your between lessons practice sessions.

I also teach how to sing karaoke and impress an audience. I've been studying audience psychology for more than 15 years, and MY ENTIRE ORIENTATION IN SINGING IS TO, "DRIVE YOUR AUDIENCE TO THEIR FEET FOR A STANDING OVATION!"

I record CD's with custom labels for students, with their picture, included in the price of the lessons. You can have a CD of yourself singing for you to to play, to give to your family and friends, or perhaps to sell.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons are in my home studio, with recording equipment which we use to record you in lessons and on CD's, high quality studio monitor speakers that let you sound exactly the way you sound to others, high quality recording microphones, computer, control panel, keyboard, and music stands.

When I come to your location for lessons I bring portable equipment to do a computer analysis of the student's voice, and to record and play back my student's progress for analysis and discussion.

*** Specialties ***
I teach singing in English, Italian, Spanish, & German, in all styles, including Pop, Blues, Gospel, Classical, Rock, Jazz, Scat Singing, Belting, Country and Western, and Rap.

This is one of my favorite areas of study - the total integration of connected character work and soaring, sustainable vocal performance. We'll dig into the music itself, the important questions to answer for characterization, and how the two elements interplay through your performance.

About Ryland
Hi there! My name is Ryland and I am a full-time vocal coach. Thanks for taking a look at my profile here on TakeLessons - I know you have a lot of options, so let me tell you a little bit about what makes my teaching approach so unique and successful.

I received formal education for Vocal Performance from New York University. Since then, I have worked in nearly every angle of the entertainment industry from backup singing in a divey pub to vocal coaching and music directing a major motion picture, you name it. Understanding and coaching the artist at any particular juncture in their journey is one of the beautiful things about my job.

I work with singer-songwriters, pop artists, and theater performers not only to craft a sustainable approach to singing, but to connect with your voice and your material in a way that makes your per
formance unforgettable.

I have coached dozens of artists like you, dedicated to developing their instrument - be that for a gig, for an audition or to enhance their technique and the everyday reliability of their voice.

Recent credits include vocal coaching for the major motion picture musical "Crazy For The Boys" (Winter 2019), and creation and instruction of a new vocal development program for the transgender community at the Los Angeles LGBT Center's Trans*Lounge.

Feel free to reach out with any questions you may have; I'm already looking forward to working with you! - RS

PS - In addition to the session offerings I have listed on this site, I also offer 30 MINUTE LESSONS FOR CHILDREN AGES 8-15.
To book half-hour children's lessons, please contact TakeLessons directly at 877-231-8505. Adjusted rate is $50/ half-hour and available for children of the above listed age range only.

I had singing classes before for years, but before meeting Ryland I had a 2 year hiatus for many reasons. I needed someone that could help me evolve my rusty technique to gain vocal power while going thru FTM hormone therapy. In the first few weeks I already noticed a big difference in my voice, being able to hit such power that I didn’t had before. He would also notice my strenghts and weaknesses, and work on them with easy to understand concepts and techniques. Each week it gets more challenging and with him I’m able to get better each time, so it does end up not being challenging at all! He also understands that my voice is going thru changes, so everything is done in a healthy way, pushing forward my knowledge and practice while making it a safe transition! He’s kind enough to give me lessons that I work at home in-between classes as well. And to top it all, we both have the same sense of humor, so after a tough day at work, being able to do what I love while being a funny and relaxing experience it’s gold! Thank you Ryland! Can’t wait for my next class! :)

Ryland is the real deal. He’s an amazing teacher and has helped me resolve an issue that I’ve had my entire life with my voice. I always felt I was straining my voice and always had to make a huge effort trying to be heard and yet my voice would not project and often people would have a hard time hearing what I was saying. I always felt very frustrated because our voice is such an intimate expression of ourselves and I felt that I was making this huge effort and my voice did not feel like a natural expression of myself. Instead I felt tense and uncomfortable. When I picked up acting, the issues with my voice, the need to be heard and to have a confident vocal range became more urgent. I didn’t really believe it would be possible because I had tried a speech therapist in the past but Ryland has taught me how to make lasting changes to my voice that have made a huge difference in my life. Ryland is incredibly gifted. He has an amazing ear and can hear things about my voice that I don’t even know how to put into words. We worked over a period of several months and he was a truly wonderful teacher, not only in terms of the work we did during the lessons but also his kindness, compassion and nurturing were equally important in helping me make the changes. I can’t recommend him highly enough.

I continued my graduate studies at École Normale de Musique de Paris under Maestro Chernov's wife and personal voice teacher, Olga Toporkova.

I believe in establishing a solid technical foundation based in classical singing technique. The technique I teach comes from the Russian school of Bel Canto (beautiful singing in Italian). By gaining control of your voice through breath control and precise vocal placement, anything is possible! A solid technical foundation will assure the longevity of your voice and its application crosses over into any genre of music you sing.

As a singer, I have performed in a
wide variety of contexts ranging from opera, choral, musical theater, jazz, and R&B/pop. I have over 15 years of experience performing, and over 5 years of experience teaching voice. My diverse array of artistic experiences allows me to be flexible and sensitive to the specific needs of my students.

Singing is ultimately a form of artistic expression and release. The end goal of all the technical training is to create an artistic moment for both you and the audience. When you begin the journey of discovering your own unique voice, you will also begin a deeper journey with yourself. Singing has brought me so much joy in my own life and I look forward to sharing that joy with you!

Taj is an amazing teacher and you can tell he really loves it too! I am a musician and have been singing professionally for years, and in just one lesson Taj taught me practices and techniques that allowed my voice to feel effortless and powerful in a way it never has before. His lessons will strengthen your voice no matter what style you want to sing...jazz, rock, opera, pop. He makes it very fun as well- I look forward to our lessons all week!

Taj is classically trained and knows his stuff. He showed me how to become more in tune with my instrument, and pushed me to new limits in my range and power. His commitment to music is contagious

I have been singing for 22 years, and have been trained by the best of the best in the music industry. As an artist myself, I offer more than just the secret tricks and strategies to get you sounding your best - I offer real world experience for when you’re actually on stage performing, and coach with stage presence and performance teqnique.

About Melanie
I have been singing my entire life and started voice lessons at the age of 6, so I don't think it's ever too early to get started!

In addition to the many plays and showchoir programs I was involved in growing up, I have a BA in Theater/ Television from Pepperdine University, where I did numerous musicals and performances, as well as coached several productions.

Since being in LA, I have studied with some of the most prominent vocal coaches here, whose clients include Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Madonna, and more.

As a performer and artist myself, I felt that I had more than just the technique to teach, I have the experience. Anyone can be an amazing singer, but it's that extra "it factor" that will get a singer noticed. In my 5000+ hours of stage experience, I knew this was something I wanted to focus my efforts
on with my students, in addition to making you feel your absolute best about your instrument.

By the second lesson, in addition to exercises to help strengthen your voice, I will begin coaching you with the songs you're working on! Depending on your level of experience and purpose for the song (i.e: audition / performance) I will also coach you on stage presence and performance.

Melanie helped me prepare for an audition and I felt so much more confident going in because we had worked together. Will definitely see her again! And if you go to her house she has really cute corgis! :)

I have seen a vast improvement in my voice since working with Melanie, more than any other coach I've had in the past. She will make you a better singer.
