About Joe
I am currently the piano and guitar teacher at Oakwood Academy Schools of Long Beach, and the Music Director for the non-profit organization Arts Aloud Theater Group. I have a BA in Music Education with an emphasis in voice. I've been teaching for 17 years in classroom and one-on-one settings. Other places where I have taught are: Calvary Chapel Downey School, Dexter Music Academy, and ABC Unified School District. I've been complimented on my ability to teach in a way that makes my students learn very quickly. I was trained in the classical and pop/rock genres. I've toured with choirs throughout China, and the United States (including Carnegie Hall), and I have also toured with rock/pop bands in Spain, Mexico, Central America, Peru, and throughout the U.S.A.

I've worked with various vocal coaches including Grammy-nominated Ilene
Graff, and Maxayn Lewis (who has worked with Celine Dion and Britney Spears).

I am also currently the lead singer (also playing guitar & piano) for the band Hello Human. I've worked with amazing musicians including Michael Thompson (guitarist for Michael Jackson, Christina Aguilera), and John Robinson (drummer for Quincy Jones, Elton John). I've also had the honor of working with Wyn Davis (producer of No Doubt, Sublime).

My songs have been on Alcoa Tennessee'™s Love 89.1 Radio, Refuge, CSN, WCTL, and on hundreds of other radio stations.

I divide my class into 4 parts: 1.Scales/Chords/Arpeggios/Warm-ups 2.Sight-Reading 3.Theory 4.Improvisation. Depending on the instrument of your choice, and also what your specific goals are, each of these parts are customized. You will learn quickly.

I've been teaching Singing for 10 years and my students have gone on to find their own, unique voices, develop increasing strength, range and conviction, and go on to accomplish everything from singing in their own bands to auditioning for American Idol and performing in major acts. Within the first few lessons, you'll become more familiar with the new-found attributes of your voice by learning a series of exercises, and voice strengthening routines, and as time goes on you'll be able to sing well beyond your expectations. I specialize in Pop, Rock and R&B and utilize a keyboard, piano and guitar for our lessons as well as have various Videos and MP3's available for your personal practice time. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I give her all 5 stars because no one has ever made me come out of my little singing shell and out of my comfort zone, I've learned new techniques to help my breath control and I've gotten so much better at matching pitch!

I have taken lessons with Ronald since I was 6, I am now 23. In my 17 years of taking lessons I have learned to play piano, sing and am proficient in music theory. In the more recent years I have even had the opportunity to teach music through Ronald. Throughout the years, I have experienced and witnessed the patience and kindness Ronald consistently shows his students. He encourages his students to become better and shares in their enthusiasm due to their accomplishments. Ronald genuinely cares about his students and is dedicated to making sure his students improve. I fully recommend Ronald for students who have parents who want to be involved in the learning process and especially for young children who are just starting out. Ronald works well with families, includes parents every step of the way and is very patient with young students helping them learn in an open and encouraging environment.

Mr.Chaz is really dedicated to his profession. He started to teach my seven year old son over one year ago and he has motivated him to sing his best and he started piano with him last year which has been a phenomenal experience for my son. Chaz really focuses on the detail, theory and groundwork necessary to excel in music. If you are lucky enough to get your child started with him you will never regret the experience. He is simply the best! My son sings all the time now and loves to play piano. I am so happy for my son to have found someone to expand on his talents!

Arcadia, CA

I'm a personal trainer - for your voice! My trainings incorporate modern twists on the most effective techniques from the Swedish-Italian school of singing. I use this classical technique as the foundation for compelling vocals in commercial styles, such as pop, soul, and rock. You will learn how to use your body and breath together to produce powerful and beautiful sound!
Your lessons are handcrafted - warmups, exercises, and all - to wherever you are in your vocal journey. Through each lesson, you will receive the tools you need to strengthen your voice and reach your goals. Let's have fun crafting a voice that stands out. Message me to get started, I can't wait to meet you!

About Moriah
I am a vocalist, songwriter, pianist, and recording artist, currently tracking the debut EP for my synth-pop project Steel Maggie. I graduated from Cal Poly Pomona with a Bachelors of Arts in Music, emphasis in Music Industry Studies, including voice and performance training. I have studied with/been coached by Martin Green from Citrus College, Dr. Susan Ali and Kendra Vuk from Cal Poly Pomona, and Aretha Scruggs.

I specialize in singing and teaching commercial styles, particularly pop, rock, and soul, but my approach to all commercial vocal practice is derived from classical traditions, mainly from the Swedish-Italian school of vocal production. No matter your skill level or background, you can be assured that you will receive a solid foundation in theory and technical skill through our lessons. Our sessions will take place in my
home studio.

While I primarily teach voice, I have had extensive piano training, so if you are interested in playing the piano while singing, I will gladly help you develop that skill. As an avid songwriter, I can guide you through the songwriting process, show you how to write melodies that fit your range and vocal timbre, and give you tips to improve your songs.

in addition to helping you strengthen your voice and reach your vocal goals, I will teach you how to maintain your progress and prime yourself for continuous growth. You will never feel judged or put down in your lessons with me. I make it my mission to foster an environment of encouragement, self-esteem, and fun. However, like a personal trainer, I will hold you accountable, because I want to see you excel and stand out in your singing endeavors. I want you to thrive as a vocalist. I look forward to our first session together!

Hands down Moriah is an excellent teacher. She really helped me to understand the difference between singing from my throat and from my core. She reminded me to enjoy the process of learning a new song and to embrace my originality. I’ve studied with her for awhile and she’s shown me how to push myself and appreciate all the work that I’ve done, learning to trust myself.

No two voices are alike, and they shouldn't be! I teach sustainable singing while retaining and highlighting what is special about your voice. We'll strengthen the tone, expand the range and work toward creating a singing voice that is compelling, reliable, and second-nature. Looking forward to working with you!

About Ryland
Hi, I'm Ryland and I'm a professional vocal coach. If you're ready to reach your peak performance, you've come to the right place!

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 performance unforgettable.

I have coached dozens of artists like you, seeking to develop their instrument - be that for a gig, for an audition or to develop as a singer and as an artist.

Recent credits include vocal coaching for the major motion picture musical "Crazy For The Boys" (Summer 2018), and creation and instruction of a new vocal development program for the transgender community at the Los Angeles LGBT Center's Trans*Lounge.

I received formal education for Vocal Performance from New York Unive
rsity. 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'm already looking forward to working with you! - RS

Lessons will be geared by you- we will work on what you are interested in, and I will give the tools to do so in our lesson, and by yourself when you practice.
