Yes even I grew up in a Spanish household I took lessons. Speaking it naturally is way different when learning the grammar and the rules. I will guide you through the levels of the correct formal and informal to talk in Spanish.

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.

Puedes hablar español? I grew up in Los Angeles, so I had it around me at all times. I finally was able to properly learn it when I moved to Quito, Ecuador, using my past knowledge of French to learn it on the go. I then traveled all around South America, and people tell me I have a pretty funky accent, which I love.

About Michelle
Hi! I'm Michelle, a world traveler/teacher who's here to help bring her experience and energy to students back home in California. I've taught various subjects such as test prep, English, history, and languages to students all over the world, such as China, France, and Ecuador. I've worked with students of all ages and love getting to know them to help figure out how they best learn.

I love learning languages in my spare time and practicing when I can. When I'm not looking a bit silly doing that, I'm usually reading, at a baseball game, hiking, or hanging out with friends. I keep active, making sure to run or climb a mountain when I can. However, it's equally as strong as my love for foods of all kinds.

I really look forward to getting to work with you and helping you with whatever I can!

"I've been teaching Spanish for 3 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of Spanish culture. Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro! I typically use the Plazas textbooks, and have the following tools available for your lessons: worksheets, textbooks, and more. I love working with students of all experience levels and espero contar con su presencia!

I was born in Argentina, so I am a Spanish native speaker. I really love helping my students develop their ability to communicate in this language. I am an actress, so I studied and know how to talk with different accents.

About Daniela
I’m Daniela Santi. Do you want to learn to sing? Let me help you! Many people admire singers and wish ‘’they would’ve been born with that gift’’. But the truth is, that with a good technique and coach, everybody can become a good singer, it is a learned skill. All you have to do is TRAIN. So now that you now that the voice can be trained in just about everyone, you can get that excuse out of your head and move forward!
That’s the process that I want to help you go through! I want to help you maximize your potential. Whether you want to become a professional singer or just do it for fun, my goal is to help you get there, by developing a healthy vocal technique, working on your breathing, flexibility of your muscles, pitch, range, and style.
Get in touch and let’s work this out together! Because your voice matters!

Daniela is very talented and knowledgeable. She communicates very well and adapts her language skills to make you visualize what she is teaching you. Very descriptive and very talented in expressing concepts to help you visualize the body in ways that allow you to use it efficiently while singing. She is very kind and energetic, yet assertive and competent in her direction. I’m going to keep learning with her. Awesome teacher.

He is very well-educated and makes sure to also teach the cultural aspects of Central and South American countries. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to be able to speak Spanish proficiently within a short period of time.

Lets have fun while you learn and improve your Spanish.

I was born and raised in Mexico. I love music, in fact I write songs. I am a CSUN graduate and love to teach Spanish. English is my second language and I learned it in only 6 months. Since I was a second language student myself, I know what works and what doesn't. Spanish is a beautiful language and it is a lot of fun. I hope I can help you learn it and practice it.

La teoria es buena, pero la practica mejor.
