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 and
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.

Max has been on time every time. He has established a very good rapport with my 15 year old (!!!) son which results in my son doing the homework and not dreading the sessions. My son seems relieved to be understanding the Algebra II concepts that he missed during the past term. He also seems way more confident and in a much better mood as if solving this issue for school was weighing him down before. In addition Max is very pleasant, very polite so his presence is welcomed by the rest of the family. Thanks!!!

About Amber
Hello, I'm Amber, music education major and commercial music minor. My background in music extends to marching band competitions, teaching a classroom of 30+ students (age range 8 to 15), giving private lessons since '08, and performing at events like the Sugar Bowl of '11 and being featured on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. Being a fellow parent, I understand the hardship of setting consistent tutoring schedules, so I'm very flexible as long as my own schedule is respected. I have experience with the special needs community and continue to volunteer at events that suit my work/school week. I'll gladly work with those who have autism, down syndrome, etc.
When teaching students of any age, I like maintaining a relationship with them (and parents) to where they are comfortable inquiring topics outside of the musical realm, such as "how was scho
ol today?" I want my students/parents to feel that they can come to me for (limited) social time. Thank you for your consideration.
-Lessons will always be at an affordable price, guaranteed.
-For musicians, if you want to learn the flute, clarinet, keyboard/piano, soprano saxophone, or piccolo, you have the option of taking that instrument home practicing outside of our sessions. Music stand and sheet music included. Bringing in pieces to learn is always welcome!
-Parents are encouraged sit in and/or participate. -Snacks/drinks can be provided.

Hi there! In the past, I have acted as a tutor/teacher in all sorts of situations. Whether it be tutoring students that needed help at my high school to helping out my friends on their homework or even teaching my own Sunday School class in high school. I don't just tutor to make money, I tutor because I love the things I am teaching and I love to see the breakthrough in a student when they understand the thing they are studying. I have plenty of experience tutoring students and am 100% confident that I will be able to help my students improve their grades and more importantly, learn something new!
