About Briana
Briana teaches voice to all ages and all levels. She incorporates breathing exercises, vocal warm-ups, and ear training, into all lessons, as well as performance practice of a song from any genre of the student's choosing. Once the student masters the song, he or she also has the unique opportunity to record the song in Briana's home studio. Her philosophy is that lessons should be fun and productive and, therefore, all of her students have a great time, as well as learn a lot. :-)

Briana also holds a masters degree in English literature and has been teaching English for over 15 years. She is qualified to teach the following: English as a second language, creative writing, English literature, advanced essay writing, composition, and a wide array of others. She teaches at the elementary, middle, high school, and college levels.

Brian
a has studied various vocal genres under a wide variety of coaches: classical, chamber, and pop voice; musical theatre voice and jazz, soul, R&B, and gospel technique at McGill University in Montreal. Briana also spent 10 years studying the classical Suzuki method of piano under Phyllis Kranz (Dover, NH), which helped to develop her ear.

Briana can be heard in commercials including the 2015 international campaign for Coca-Cola directed by David LaChapelle, the 2015 American Express campaign, backing Aretha Franklin on the legendary "Natural Woman," Maybelline's CS Creamy Mattes starring supermodel Adriana Lima, David LaChapelle's Smirnoff spot starring Amber Rose, the 2011 Fanta "Vision" campaign, and national advertisements for "Living Social." She also works frequently in film and television as a soundtrack contributor on numerous projects, including Disney's My Babysitter's a Vampire (2010) (TV), Image's horror anthology Chillerama (2011), and the science fiction film Devolution: Reckoning (2011).

With a unique blend of blues, pop and soul, Briana's immensely popular debut album GRANITE STATE (2009) led to a series of packed shows on the stages of the Sunset Strip, including House of Blues, Key Club, and the Whiskey a Go Go. Her follow-up album, "Armor" was released in 2011 to successful sales on Amazon, iTunes, and Rhapsody.

Briana has also been the featured guest performer at a number of prestigious private events: Dodger Stadium (anthem singer), The Molson Centre (anthem singer), The Whittemore Center (anthem singer), various Gubernatorial Galas, Inaugurations, and more.

Fun, Encouraging and Helpful!

Brianna was fantastic with my fourteen year old! She helped build up confidence, was very encouraging and made lessons fun. She uses a variety of techniques to teach singing skills including speech-level singing by Seth Riggs. I highly recommend her for beginners as well as for people looking to record a demo.

Supportive, fun, and SO knowledgeable

I started taking singing lessons because I wanted to pick up another hobby, and Briana has helped me do just that. She is incredibly knowledgeable, helpful, and supportive regardless of what your goals are. She makes the technical side of signing fun and enjoyable, something other teachers I have worked with have been unsuccessful at. Briana provides a positive and warm space to let loose in, and most importantly has reminded me that I don't always have to take myself so seriously. I highly recommend Briana to anyone who is looking for a teacher they can create a connection with, regardless of skill level because she can handle it all!

I just wanted to take singing lessons for fun and to build up my confidence singing around others. Briana has taken my needs into account and has done a great job putting together lessons that fit my needs. She offers a very relaxed, soothing atmosphere that gives me the comfort that I need to be able to work on my goals. She is very talented as well, which helps me feel confident in her abilities to teach me what I'm looking to learn. Overall, she is a great singing coach and I would recommend her to anyone! :o)

Acting coaching for the recital hall and for the stage

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.

Maria Louisa is absolutely incredible. I have worked as a professional film and television actor for over thirty years. Maria Louisa adds so much to every coaching session and to any "Eco" audition. She notices things that I may have overlooked in my scene or character breakdown. I booked a supporting lead in the @0th Century FOX feature film, Diary of a Wimpy Kid 3/Dog Days, submitting on my iphone, and with Maria Louisa assisting. She is always straight to the point, and always gets me the very best results.
