About Chloe
Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile and learn a little more about me!

My love for music began very young with piano lessons at age five. I continued lessons throughout high-school and college, but during that time I also found my love for singing and musical theater. Upon discovering opera I felt like I found my calling and have been studying and performing classical voice ever since. The combination of romance languages and the amazing athletic feat that is operatic singing captivated me from the very first moment I saw it and I’ve been hooked ever since.

I hold a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from San Jose State University, and since graduating I have performed with Opera San Jose, Symphony Silicon Valley, Celestial Opera Company & Independent Opera Company.

Although my main pursuit is clas
sical performance, I absolutely love to teach all styles and see the joy of music grow in my students. I’ve been teaching voice and piano since 2009 (8 years) and with my solid piano, musical theater, and classical background I offer my students the best of both worlds.

Want to learn how to play your favorite pop song? Beethoven’s “Fur Elise”? Maybe you’re a closet Pavarotti fan and have a yearning to hit those stratosphere-high notes, or maybe you just love to sing and want someone’s encouraging ear. No matter what your goal is I will make it my mission to help you attain it!

That's pretty much the gist about me and my teaching, but if you'd like to know what your lesson might look like feel free to ask me! I usually respond within a day.

Progress, not perfection!
Practice, Practice, Practice! (duh!)

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!

"Jennifer Bennet is the true definition of a coach. She embraces her students true individuality, she helps pull something out of you that you may not have realized you have. 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."

About Kimberley
SPECIAL RATES FOR ONLINE STUDENTS! ASK ME!

Hi there!

My name is Kimberley, and I'm a British singer/songwriter, and I love teaching young people about this amazing industry! I offer songwriting, singing and piano lessons, as well as writing and composition. My first rule is that there isn't any! Each student is unique and different, and my goal is to teach in a way that's fun and interesting and keeps people engaged.

I teach all ages, young and old, novice to experienced, and take great joy in meeting new people and getting to know them and helping them learn.

Coaching can take place at your home or we can sit outside in my apartment by the pool, we can even go to a park and sit in the sunshine! I'm really flexible and want this to work for you at your own pace to help you reach your own goals.

I received one of the hig
hest marks ever in the country for Grade 8 piano when I was 14 years old and I haven't looked back! I've performed all over the world as a singer, and have always incorporated my piano as much as I can. I have had a joint number one in the UK, as well as other singles in the charts and have done arena tours throughout the UK and Europe. I have masses of performance experience and a lot of industry contacts as well.

Get in touch and we'll go from there! I'm excited to meet you and chat about what you want to achieve.

Brian is great. I could not have asked for a better teacher. He had me up and running on Pro Tools after the first lesson, and I am a true beginner. He is so incredibly well versed on the entire recording process, and excellent in breaking down difficult topics into layman terms. I give Brian my highest recommendation.

About Aaron
I am a professional saxophonist, composer, and songwriter with a particular passion in writing music for films and video games. Growing up near Portland, Oregon, I was surrounded by friends who were engrossed by jazz, classical, and rock music, and immediately wanted to be a part of it. Throughout high school, I had the opportunity to perform in New York City, Atlanta, and Monterey with the award-winning American Music Program, as well as record on numerous occasions with Grammy-award-winning artist Esperanza Spalding.

Since coming to live in Los Angeles, CA in 2013, I have been involved in both the jazz and pop music scenes as a performer and arranger, leading my own groups and music directing for others. I have also been involved in the film scene, composing the music for 16 short films, 5 independent video games, and a 3-episode
web series. (You can also see/hear me play a few notes in 2014's "Whiplash")

In my lessons, I am happy to cover everything from beginning techniques on the instrument, being able to improvise in any context or genre, and working in a recording studio setting.

I strongly believe in the values of listening, improvising (both in music and in life), and perceiving every instance and detail as a chance to learn. These are the values on which I base my teaching, as well as my own music.

I am a lover of all kinds of music, movies, video games, hiking, traveling, and Mexican food.
