Note: I do not play behind a piano, we use karaoke. If you are looking for that, I am not the coach for you. I like to be able to watch what is going on with my students, which is why I choose to use karaoke and not my piano.

She has been producing music and vocals in the recording studio, coaching voice, piano, songwriting, rap writing, performance, studio, jazz, blues, classical, pop and artist development for the past 20 years. She was operatically trained by Juilliard instructor Sylvia Bagley, trained as a jazz singer at world re-known Berklee College of Music, where she won several songwriting awards, and was R & B/Pop trained by Vocal Coach To The Stars, Seth Riggs. In 2010 she had a #6 Billboard hit dance song, which she wrote and sang and 2 top 10 hits in 2016.

Fawn is a very fun, yet honest and straight-forward coach. She loves working with adults and children, and considers lessons a 'team effort to reach her students' goals. Being that music and the entertainment business are her career and life, she is current and relevant, yet has plenty of old school training to be well rounded and help students build a strong foundation. Music and the entertainment business are her life, and she loves helping people reach their goals and meet their dreams.

Over the years, Fawn has been known to bring students into her inner circle, so they can gain more experience and exposure, taking them to red carpets, events and even putting them up onstage to perform. She remembers having piano, voice and songwriting coaches, and being frustrated in voice because instructors were not addressing issues that needed to be addressed. This is why she creates a positive and comfortable, safe environment so students can open up and progress quickly. Fawn moves straight to the heart of the matter and gets whatever needs work figured out, so students can move on to what their goals and dreams are. She has helped actors be able to sing parts for their TV shows, helped popular bands be able to have good stage performances and presence with precision dancing and singing and has helped vocalists find their true voice. She is able to get piano students as young as 5 to a high-level Concerto level of playing with in 3 years, completely reading the pieces on their own.

Van Nuys, CA

More and more revivals are showing up on Broadway and they call for a "legit" sound. That means a classical technique with a musical theater style. Be prepared! The rigors of the musical theater schedule are demanding. A good technique is your only defense against 6-9 shows a week! Protect your finest asset- your talent. No one knows how to do that better than an opera singer...especially on who has sung plenty of musical theater!

About Tania
I am an enthusiastic teacher with a nuts-and bolts approach to singing. With over 20 years of training as an opera singer my technique is impeccable! I teach all styles and ages from beginner to professional. Can't carry a tune? You can learn! Love to sing in the shower? Dry off and sing out proud! Is your kid a Broadway Baby? Give him or her the best training and keep those cords SAFE with proper technique. If your child isn't a typical learner- have no fear. I am a patient and experienced teacher with ASD and ADHD kids. All learning styles welcome! I have trained with the best and am ready to share my knowledge. Come train in a fun and nurturing environment while improving by leaps and bounds!

I teach Broadway singing in a way that is fun, encouraging, and easy to understand. I will help you hone your skills and develop new ones. My knowledge of repertoire is vast.

About Jennifer
I have always had a passion for musical theatre and vocal performance. I belted my way to Los Angeles and attended the University of Southern California, Thornton School of Music, where I received a B.M. in Vocal Performance.

Upon completing my Bachelor’s degree, I received an M.M. in Musical Theatre from the Boston Conservatory. ​When I wasn’t enjoying some wicked good clam chowdah, I could be found onstage as a concert soloist with the Boston Pops conducted by Keith Lockhart or belting the national anthem at Fenway Park.

Wanting to combine my joy for traveling with my love for performance, I also studied acting at the British American Drama Academy in Oxford, England, musical theatre at NYU’s CAP 21, and opera at OperaWorks in California. I have performed in New York at Birdland and the Laurie Beechman Theatre, and in New Hampsh
ire with the Great Waters Music Festival and New Hampshire Dance Institute.

Fueling my wanderlust, I traveled the world in the International Tour of CATS. I have also performed in many regional theatres throughout the country. Some of my favorite credits include: The Marvelous Wonderettes, Light in the Piazza, Guys and Dolls, The Golden Apple, and The Full Monty.

I've been teaching private lessons since 2006 and have loved helping my students expand their vocal range, increase their repertoire, gain solid technique, and just enjoy singing. Each lesson will begin with a vocal warm-up focusing on breath, posture, and technique. We will then work on your music together. I want to know what type and styles of music you like and am happy to help provide you with new material ideas. My background is primarily in musical theatre/Broadway which embraces all styles of music including classical, jazz, pop, rock, and country.

I can't wait to meet you!

When working with Jennifer she makes sure that her students succeed, and even in the moments of when you feel you are failing she is there to get you through to encourage you to be yourself and to let your strengths and weakness help drive your storytelling within your songs/ and or performance."

Broadway is a very specialized type of singing. Different from classical, different from jazz. What you'll get from me is not only the style you need, but the coaching for your audition or your role as well.

About Judi
Hi everyone! I've been teaching in a variety of areas for many years in many different respects. I teach voice lessons, and audition coaching. I've been doing that for a long time! During my "day-job" years, I was an analyst, and I'm especially skilled with Microsoft Excel. And I LOVE teaching people how to make magic on that program. I have done projects that included creating databases, training departments on the use of said databases, taught entire departments at Jet Propulsion Laboratory how to migrate to Microsoft Outlook from (the archaic) Eudora.

My musical talents run parallel with my affinity for numbers. In my life, it has manifested in music composition, arranging, and musical direction. And, of course, PERFORMANCE! I've performed in and around the Los Angeles area for many years. I own a professional Christmas Caroling co
mpany that I direct and sing in as well. So I'm a performer, and a small business owner! So come see what I can offer!

REACH YOUR PEAK PERFORMANCE. Ryland just finished production as vocal coach and music director for the major motion picture movie musical, "Crazy For The Boys" (in theaters Spring 2018). He coaches singer-songwriters, pop artists and theater performers.
No two voices are alike, and they shouldn't be! Ryland teaches sustainable singing while retaining and highlighting what is special about your voice. Special areas of focus include artist movement, song study and singing for the actor.

About Ryland
Hi, I'm Ryland and I'm a professional vocal coach. You're on this site because you want to improve your craft, and I'm on this site because I can help!

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.

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.

So let's get to work, what do you say. Let's reach your peak performance.

I can help you sing correctly in several styles by making sure your support is engaged, and that the position of your throat is open and your larynx low, in addition to teaching you how to use the "muscoli della maschera" (muscles of the face), and a ton of other useful singing techniques. And can help you with your musicianship as well if you need that too!

I have a DMA and MM from the University of Southern California, Thornton School of Music and have taught voice since 2007 privately and in colleges and universities in southern California. I have sung with opera companies and classical orchestras all over the US and abroad, and have sung on more than 65 soundtracks and albums. I've worked with John Williams, Josh Groban, Gustavo Dudamel, Danny Elfman, and many others.

About Lesley
Whether you're looking to up your career game, trying to break-in, or you love to sing and just want to be more accomplished, I can help you! I have been singing professionally since 1991 with Los Angeles Opera, NY City Opera, Köln Opera, Covent Garden, Glimmerglass, Glyndbourne, Los Angeles Master Chorale, and as a session singer on film soundtracks and albums. More recently I've started producing albums. I have an MM in vocal performance and a DMA in music from USC, and can ensure that you will learn to sing safely and correctly no matter what style of music you are singing! I work with choirs all the time on stage and in the studio, and can help you with blend, or help you prepare for your auditions at any level.

I have been teaching/coaching for 4 years in the styles of pop, R&B, contemporary musical theatre, broadway, background vocalists, gospel, worship leading and performance coaching for singers. My exeperience has been with beginner and intermediate singers from children to adults. I have worked professionally both as an actress and singer in musicals, concerts, theatre, film and television. I'm excited to unlock the greatest potential within every student! All ages are welcome

About Shay
I'm a singer/actress originally from Motown Detroit. I graduated from The Conservatory of Theatre at SUNY Purchase with a BFA in Acting. In NYC I worked as an actor in theatre, regional musicals and television. I am a proud AEA member and former AFTRA member. I was also a worship leader at World Changers Church NY.

During that time I gave private vocal lessons to worship leaders, background vocalists, musical theatre artists, actors and contemporary pop/R&B singers.

For 4 years I worked in NYC as an enrichment teacher where I taught musical theatre to elementary school aged children.

I currently reside in Los Angeles.

As a vocal coach I am best able to hlep students find their natural voice and show them how to maneuver through it with ease. I teach fundamentals such as breath support, intonation, ear training, vocal dynamics, vocal
flexibility and basic music theory. My theory is that while the above are crucial fundamentals, they are yet functions that support an inherent intuition that every singer already has.

As a perfomrance coach I push students to acheive an honest and dynamic performance emotionally, physically and vocally. I create a very safe environment where students are encouraged to fail and continue to stretch their own pre conceived limits.

I'm excited to continue teaching and grow a base of students in Los Angeles or online.

I am proud to say that even today after years since my last class with her I am able to apply what I learned and teach it to others. I serve as a team leader for my local praise team and a Worship Leader. I will always highly recommend her and now that I know she is going to be teaching folks virtually, I will recommend her to my team members!

My vocal lessons with Keira have been fantastic! Her training exercises are fun and helpful and I look forward to my lesson with her each week. I don’t have much singing experience so I would highly recommend Keira to anyone looking for a patient and knowledgeable instructor!

Keira is an excellent teacher who loves sharing her insight with others. I would recommend her for all ages as she works equally well with children and adults. Her background in songwriting across different genres helped shaped my music into songs I love playing.

Let's get you prepped for that audition or ready to kill it at karaoke next weekend! I have been singing, acting, and playing music (violin, viola) for over 18 years. My teaching technique focuses on musicality with an emphasis on healthy and safe vocal training. I have a degree in Theatre, so students have the option of working on character and acting moments with me. I'm able to teach music notation and additional music theory for those who want it, and I provide a safe space for both beginning and intermediate students who want to further themselves and take their voices higher!

About Leota
I'm a working actor, singer, and teacher in Los Angeles. I have a bachelor's degree in Theater from The University of California, Irvine, with an emphasis in Musical Theater.

While film is the focus in the city of angels, my passion for musical theater is still alive! I've performed in theater and musical theater shows across the globe, including Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland. I have also trained in music improv at UCB in Los Angeles.

No matter the level, I can teach any student to be more expressive and comfortable with their voice. Each week we will work on techniques to improve voice placement, as well as proper breathing so you don't hurt your voice even when you're sick! Whether you want to improve your high range into the classical soprano or coloratura or find
your big belt, I will get you there in a healthy and safe way! (Don't worry Gentlemen, I can get you to sing high too!).

I work with students of all ages, backgrounds and levels. Many of my students are actors with no vocal background, and some of my students are classical or operatic singers who want to work on acting and expressing themselves musically for a better overall performance. Whatever your goals are, we will accomplish them!

Leota knows the tricks to enhance your vocal technique to it's fullest...less than a minute into our first session she was already making me sound better, and it went on from there. She has a grounded honest professional approach to voice coaching, and can help you achieve both classical and modern sounds. She will find different ways of explaining what to go for if you are having trouble picking up a concept. I had taken regular of voice lessons years ago, and a session with Leota, was teaching me new things, reinforcing proper techniques, and remembering my voice's potential.
