I have a side specialty in accent reduction for both actors and singers who need to minimize their accents quickly.

About Toni

Two of my students are currently on tour with Sting! 2020 is certainly starting out with a bang. The Signal published an article on Oct.26, 2018: "Local musician Liza Donihue Signs Development Deal". Liza started studying with me through Takelessons in 2016. Just a couple of seasons ago one of my

Tony is spectacular! She empowers me each time we work together!
Michele
Toni has been one of the most important people in my life. She taught me not only how to sing, but also how to perform and be a real musician. She makes the lessons incredibly fun and helpful. I wouldn't be the musician I am today without her.
Judith
I've had a few singing teachers before and let me just say it was always mediocre. It was all fundamentals and straight to techniques. With toni it was so much fun and very simple. She makes sure that I don't feel like I'm being tested or points out my flaws but rather my strength which makes me feel even more motivated to sing. She's an amazing instructor I recommend her to anyone who wants to have fun learning rather than feeling like they're in a class. She's passionate, kind and she is an amazing teacher. Take her

As a classically trained vocalist with a Master's in Voice, I can help you to develop a solid, healthy technique in your singing. I have experience teaching beginning to advanced students, so all experience levels are welcome!

I want to be able to help you achieve your personal singing goals in a relaxed, fun, and healthy way. Improving musicianship skills like ear training and sight reading are incorporated into the lesson, as well as practice techniques that will help you to see dramatic improvement in short periods of time.

I studied Voice at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM), where I received my master's degree. I sing full-time with the LA Master Chorale, am a session singer for movies and TV, and perform with opera companies throughout California. Read my full bio for more info.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions!

Jessie Shulman is a fantastic voice teacher. I've studied with her for 2 years. She is professional, knowledgeable, and crafts our lessons around the skills I need to work on, and helps me select repertoire to learn that utilizes those skills. She easily identifies what I'm struggling with and patiently guides me how to improve. She gives wonderful tips on how to stay vocally healthy.

I've made enormous progress in my vocal performance. I highly recommend Jessie for voice lessons.

Very knowledgeable. My daughter enjoy learning from him.
Isabel Z.
So far, I have had only one lesson with Dr. M., the only singing lesson I've had in my entire 66 years of a lifetime. My only regret, is that I did not take them sooner. Dr M. is patient, an expert, and motivational. What more could you ask for when working with a teacher. He thinks he can make a singer out of me; I'll have to trust his judgement. It would be awesome, if he achieves our goal.
