Nicholas has been teaching my daughter vocal lessons for about 11 months and he’s fantastic!

She’s improved so much in 10 months! He’s awesome and delivers results! My daughter enjoys her lessons with him and she’s just 9 years old and has developed so much due to his mentor ship. My daughter also has an aptitude for singing and tends to catch on to his instructions quickly.

Hello fellow Opera singers! My goal is to help you refine your own unique instrument and help you to express a story and art through the voice!

I grew up taking piano lessons and singing in my church and school choir. I always had a love for all classical music and soon enough fell in love with opera! I begin taking classical voice lessons at the age of 15 and soon realized that my heart and soul belonged to opera and had to continue my studies a lot more in depth.

I went to UCLA where I received my Bachelor of Arts with my emphasis in Opera Performance. Throughout the years spent at UCLA, I not only continued to sing with choral groups, but also performed in every opera. I sang one of the principles roles in Ravel's L'enfant et les sortilèges, and sang one of the principles roles in many opera scenes such as Dorabella from Così fan tutte, Mercedes in Carmen, Second Lady in The Magic Flute, Nerone in L'incorazione di Poppea.

Since I graduated college I have collaborated ...

Online Opera Voice Teacher

I have taught and coached voice for many years and am available for students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so that students gain experience in the genre of their choice, while also building a strong foundation rooted in classical technique. I am also available to teach fundamentals that are often required for vocal success, such as, beginner piano, music theory, and ear training.

I am a firm believer in asking questions, for myself and my students, so that we can come to a better understanding of what techniques work best for you in each lesson and track your progress from week to week.

About Leslie

My name is Leslie and I believe each person has a story to tell and a unique voice to tell it with. Whatever your experience level, I am happy to work with you in identifying and pursuing your goals in music. Whether you're interested in making a career out of music, taking up a new hobby, or rekin

It's been difficult to schedule the first lesson with Leslie but finally locked down a day/time after about two weeks of trying.

An hour before the first lesson today, she called to cancel and let me know that she “accepted a job yesterday so will no longer be giving lessons".

Leslie is an incredible teacher who makes sure you feel comfortable in the class and makes the class fun. While keeping it fun she help you improve so much, and I can 100% say that my vocal abilities have significantly improved since I started taking classes with her!

Leslie is really down to Earth and my first lesson with her was great. She makes it clear that the lessons are a safe space. She works with you to figure out a game plan to reach your goals with singing. I'm looking forward to continuing my lessons with her!

She has immediately recognized by weak spots and put me to work on improving. She gave me a lot of Vocal warm ups to help where I'm not confident in, and never pushed me to the point of Vocal hurt.

Under her tutelage, I really do feel that I've made some excellent vocal improvement over the past 6 months. She is a wonderful and enthusiastic person who is not only succinct in her pedagogical approach, but, also knows how to motivate you even when you are in doubt of yourself.

"Excellent Opera Voice Coach!

I've been having lessons with Asuka since February of this year and it has been a wonderful experience. As a beginner with absolutely no formal training in singing whatsoever, the whole process of learning to sing opera can seem like an extremely daunting task. She is encouraging and friendly, yet treats her art form with the thoroughness and respect it deserves. She really takes the time to explain proper technique throughout the entire process-- from things like maintaining proper support for your voice and more importantly how to sing opera without hurting yourself. Personally, she is helping me to find potential that I didn't think I had before. I feel very fortunate that I am able to have one on one sessions with someone of Asuka's caliber."

To say he knows the instrument well is an understatement.  And, just as important, he knows how to work with you as an individual. He has such a skillful way, as any great teacher should, of explaining what he is trying to convey in a variety of ways to help YOU as the student understand. Not all teachers are able to do that, but Julian can. And he makes sure that you understand so you can be your own technician and master of your instrument. I trust Julian. He has helped me and continues to help me understand and find MY voice."

8 Beautiful Opera Arias for Beginner Singers

It is always exciting when a vocal student is ready to start studying his or her first operatic aria! One of the best things about being a classical singer is knowing you have so many great years ahead of you. After all, you’re considered in your prime in your 40s. That being said, realize that the voice you have now and the repertoire you’ll first study will be very, very different from what you sing later on in your career. It’s absolutely crucial that you sing repertoire that is …
