I teach classical singing to beginners, intermediate, advanced, and touring professionals.
During your first lesson I do a computer analysis of your voice, I find out what your goals are in singing, what your favorite kinds of music are, and I take you in the direction you want to go and show you how to get there in the shortest possible time.

I always record my students so that they know how they sound to others. I also make a CD of them singing to background music if they wish, included in the cost of the lessons for no extra charge.

Learn to sing beautifully, and most important, emotionally.
Learn the parts of your vocal instrument, How each works, How they work together. Develop Breath support (80% of singing).
Learn how to do the Singer's Formant, "Squillo" (that "ringing" sound of professionals).

Learn how to conquer nervousness, learn Resonance, Overtones, Vibrato, How to sing high notes, Learn the "singing vowels", and more.

About Carl
I am very high level, but I also love working with beginners.
I have studied all the major singing teachers of the last 250 years, and my book, "Sing Batter Fast", includes everything I have learned from them, plus my own singing and teaching experience.

During your first lesson I will do a computer analysis of your voice. I find out what your goals are in singing, what your favorite kinds of music are, and I take you in the direction you want to go and show you how to get there in the shortest possible time.

Think you're the only one who feels that terrifying nervousness? Most everyone does, including the biggest stars. The four books I've written on singing are entitled, "SING BETTER FAST", complete vocal technique in brief, "HOW TO CONQUER NERVOUSNESS FOR SINGERS" in which I'll teach you to not only handle, but direct extrem
e nervousness into your singing, making your performance soar. I've also written, "HOW TO GET STANDING OVATIONS FOR SINGERS" to teach you to drive your audience to their feet for a standing ovation, and "ADVANCED SINGING", all available on Amazon.

I always record my students so that they know how they sound to others. I can make a CD of them singing to background music if they wish, included in the cost of the lessons for no additional charge.

Learn to sing beautifully, and most important, emotionally. Learn the parts of your vocal instrument, How each works, How they work together. Develop Breath support (80% of singing). Learn "The Singer's Formant", that "ringing" sound of professionals. Learn learn about Resonance, Overtones, Vibrato, How to sing high notes, Learn the "singing vowels", and more.

I would rather teach singing than eat chocolate, and if you knew how much I like chocolate, you'd know my passion for teaching singing. I've been studying voice since third grade, and singing and teaching singing for eighteen years.

I've had nine singing teachers myself, so I know just how you feel. I get you comfortable, and I listen closely to what you want to do and where you want to go with your singing voice.

My students learn all the important aspects of singing right away, rather than drawing them out over time.

I teach beginner, intermediate, advanced, and professional students of all ages.

I teach all styles of singing, including pop, blues, gospel, classical voice, rock, jazz, scat singing, belting, country and western, and rap.

I teach singing in English, Italian, Spanish, and German.

My Bachelor's and Master's Degrees are from California State University Dominguez Hills.

Put your singing voice in my hands. You'll love what happens.

*** Lesson Details ***
My introductory class includes a computer analysis of your singing voice, then describes the main parts of your vocal instrument, how each works, and how they work together. It teaches you what a song is, and how to sing a song well right away.

During the first lesson I record every student and play it back, both for computer analysis, and also so the student can hear how they sound to others. Remember the first time you heard yourself in a recording and said, "That's not me!" I'll explain that to you, and why it's so important to record yourself and listen to your recordings.

Your lessons are designed toward YOUR goals and desires in singing, and include specific guides for your between lessons practice sessions.

I also teach how to sing karaoke and impress an audience. I've been studying audience psychology for more than 15 years, and MY ENTIRE ORIENTATION IN SINGING IS TO, "DRIVE YOUR AUDIENCE TO THEIR FEET FOR A STANDING OVATION!"

I record CD's with custom labels for students, with their picture, included in the price of the lessons. You can have a CD of yourself singing for you to to play, to give to your family and friends, or perhaps to sell.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons are in my home studio, with recording equipment which we use to record you in lessons and on CD's, high quality studio monitor speakers that let you sound exactly the way you sound to others, high quality recording microphones, computer, control panel, keyboard, and music stands.

*** Travel Equipment ***
When I come to your location for lessons I bring portable equipment to do a computer analysis of the student's voice, and to record and play back my student's progress for analysis and discussion.

*** Specialties ***
I teach singing in English, Italian, Spanish, & German, in all styles, including Pop, Blues, Gospel, Classical, Rock, Jazz, Scat Singing, Belting, Country and Western, and Rap.

About Carmen
Carmen has been teaching music for 10 years to children and adults, from age 4 to 50. She is able to teach many genres of music to all levels of musicianship, whether beginner or advanced, whether they want to learn Mozart or Coldplay, Aretha Franklin or Joni Mitchell . Her style of teaching utilizes the classical approach of theory and sight reading, but MOST IMPORTANTLY allows the student to explore the instrument freely while also achieving good musicianship. Having fun while honing the craft is the way to an enduring love of playing and is a principle she always uses in her lessons.

Carmen has a special gift with very young children; she is able to keep children interested, engaged, inspired and challenged. She has a patience with children that is extraordinary because she believes strongly in the ability of music to enrich child
ren's lives in all areas and seeks to cultivate that within the child.

Adults also find it easy to learn from Carmen's teaching approach. Her ability to approach a students challenges with a multitude of learning techniques has been useful in helping students succeed. She teaches skills and techniques for practicing that are useful for musicians through out their lifetime. Carmen also knows exactly what it takes to make a student a professional who is ready for studio session work, live band performances, live improvisations, auditions or creating their own music. She understands the desire and drive behind wanting to create with music and emphasizes certain key aspects that can make musicians proficient in any genre when practiced

Education

Carmen comes from a long family lineage of musicians and artists. Always being exposed to classical music and opera since birth, Carmen was in awe of the power of the human voice through opera. At 8 she began to study the art form and teach herself music. She started studying with teachers at age 11. After learning voice, piano and cello followed. While studying classical techniques, she also taught herself other genres of music which enabled her to play, record and perform with musicians of almost every genre by 19.

Carmen has been taught and trained by many professional working musicians of impressive musical carrer heights Her former opera/ vocal coach Shonie Lebie attended The Julliard School on a full scholarship before going on to The Metropolitan Opera House. Piano teacher Shoshana Ben Horin, a graduate of Prague Conservatory of Music and concert pianist, toured all of Europe before instructing Carmen in piano. Carmen has learned cello and other string instruments from professional working musicians here in Los Angeles.

Experience

Carmen is a current working session musician, songwriter and performer in Los Angeles. She has performed and recorded with musicians from The Gap Band, Guns n' Roses, Whitney Houston, Vanessa Hudgens, Hayden Panettiere, etc. She was born and raised in Los Angeles.

I am here to help you improve your technique and musicality in a fun atmosphere that promotes health and longevity of singing.

About Laura
Welcome to my studio!

I love getting to know all of my students and helping them achieve their goals. One of my favorite things about teaching is that I can meet musicians (that's you!) at all different levels and with varying interests. Whether you want to learn to sing pop, broadway, classical or just learn a tune on the piano, I am here to help!

I have been teaching for over 14 years. I have taught private lessons, group voice classes, beginning and intermediate piano, beginning music theory, and acting. I have taught in my own private studio as well as at the collegiate level. As your teacher, I will do my best to make sure your learning process is fun and that you feel comfortable. If you are nervous to try singing or piano, don't worry! I have dealt with stage fright myself and love helping my students out with nerves.

I am so proud of the many successes my students have had - from preparing auditions for college music programs (and getting accepted!) to going out for roles in their school musical or choir, or working on a community audition. I have helped my singers gain the confidence to sing at an open mic night, or perform a solo at their local church.

Whatever your goals are, I am here to help you grow and to learn to sing and/or play in a way that is HEALTHY and will help you keep making music life long.

About Bryan
Hello! I'm a singer and multi-instrumentalist with professional experience in opera, choral, and studio recording. Originally from Thousand Oaks California, I grew up with a love of the theater and of music. I have completed two advanced degrees in music, graduating from the University of California Santa Barbara with a Masters in Vocal Performance and Magna Cum Laude from Westmont College in Santa Barbara with a degree in music.

I have experience teaching in my private voice studio and at the University of California. Whether you are looking to learn to sing healthfully, prepare for a high school/college/post-college audition, bolster your confidence in front of people, or looking to explore your expressive/creative side, I will work with you to achieve your goals.

The final goal of my instruction is to equip the singer both emotio
nally and physically for the act of singing and performance both in music and in life. I realize that some of my students may go on to be professional singers, while many others will not. Nevertheless, my goal is to instill confidence and pride for ones work, nurturing the unique expressive voice of each student and assuring them that it is of great value. Armed with this confidence and knowledge, they can bring their creative apparatus to bear upon all arenas of life.

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.

Hello! I am Shelly. I am professional vocalist and private voice teacher living in Long Beach, California. I am also a Vocal Coach for a state of the art recording studio located in Anaheim. I provide individual lessons that help students learn the basics of healthy vocal technique, aural skills, and individual interpretation of song. It is my goal to help students discover the freedom in healthy singing and maintain the joy of singing. I received a BM of Music in Vocal Performance from the University of Cincinnati, CCM and a Masters in Opera Performance from California State University, Long Beach. Performance opportunities have ranged from Opera to professional ensemble work with Opera Pacific and The Los Angeles Master Chorale. My abilities to sing in other genres has led to background singing for a rap artist and gospel singer.

About Shelly
I am Shelly and I am a vocalist and voice instructor. I graduated from the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music with a Bachelors in Vocal Performance and received my Master of the Arts in Opera Performance from California State University, Long Beach, CA.

I teach privately in the Long Beach area and surrounding cities. I am also a Vocal Coach for Love and Laughter Music Group located in Anaheim, CA.
I currently teach 20 students whose vocal abilities range from beginner to professional. My formal education and experience singing in professional ensembles such as the Los Angeles Master Choral affords me the ability to help students become mindful singers.

In my lessons we will discuss your personal goals and I will cater your lessons so they center around your goals. I will also address any technical areas that we
need to build upon. In my teaching I believe that what you think and feel determines how you sing. I try to infuse positive affirmation and a safe environment for you to freely explore your personal sound. I enjoy helping students find freedom in making healthy and beautiful sounds.

I regularly teach: Pop, Classical, Musical Theater, R&B, and Traditional. Looking forward to working with you!
