About Belinda
*** Lesson Details ***
NOTE: I prefer to teach students ages 11 & up.  I will accommodate younger students, but as vocal development is a direct reflection of physical development (the instrument is the body), we will be unable to delve deeply into technique.  Instead, the curriculum for younger students will include musicianship and piano skills; they will be more of music lessons that incorporate singing rather than "vocal" lessons.  My current studio consists of all sorts of singers including classical, musical theater, R&B, and pop.  In classical voice lessons, we will be learning songs not only in English, but also Italian, German, and French. Classical voice lessons may not be for everyone, however, and we will learn repertoire that suits the interests of each student.

I emphasize a basic knowledge of music theory, because it
's important for a singer to not only know how to sing, but to also understand the music he or she is singing. I will incorporate music theory into the lessons, starting with basics such as learning how to read notes.

I believe in making sure the singer is comfortable and confident.  The environment you will be learning in is open and non-threatening because a singer needs a place to explore his or her voice.  I encourage my students to make mistakes and to keep the lines of communication as open as possible.  Singers are perfectionists, and we're constantly telling ourselves what we do wrong- we don't need someone else enforcing that negativity.

I concentrate on a classical vocal technique, with proper posture, efficient breathing, lack of facial and body tension, and healthy vocal production. I believe that it is important to have a strong foundation of healthy technique no matter what style of singing. My teaching style and lesson focus will be different for each individual person, and I'm very flexible in adapting to each singer's needs and personality.

I am a very understanding teacher, and very patient, but I will push you to work to your potential! What you put into these lessons and your practicing is what you will get out of it. I am not strict, but I do expect dedication, passion, and respect. I am a very enthusiastic and energetic teacher, and lessons with me will be fun, productive, and encouraging.

If I sound like the right teacher for you, please arrange a trial lesson to see how well we work together!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room, piano, full-length mirror, comfortable seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers classified as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25 lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students. I specialize in classical singing- applicable to any style of singing!

I'm delighted to write a review for Belinda. She's personable, professional and, just as important, very patient. As a beginner I found her explanation of proper breathing techniques extremely useful and an big step toward voice control. I would recommend Belinda without question for anyone hoping to make the transition from "wanting to sing" to "able to perform"! Two thumbs up!

About Patricia
Whether your goal is to train for personal enjoyment or a professional career I'll help you achieve that goal. My voice students sing all styles of music. Piano students learn to play the music you want to play.

I teach private voice for The Young Americans College of Performing Arts. I've also taught for the Orange County School of the Arts (OCSA).

I currently sing jazz and selections from the Great American Songbook at local clubs and venues. In the classical realm, I performed professionally with Los Angeles Music Center Opera Association, with Opera Pacific and with the Los Angeles Master Chorale. I'm a San Mateo County Vocal Competition prize winner, and former staff soloist for the televised Crystal Cathedral Hour of Power Choir, and I've recorded at the historic Capital Records studios in Hollywood.

I honed my skills with
Natalie Limonick (formerly general director of the USC Opera Program, director of the UCLA Opera Workshop and Opera Guild of Southern California President), Esther Andreas (Metropolitan Opera), Naomi Farr (New York City Opera), Nina Hinson (San Francisco Opera), Marion Cooper, Dietrich Erbelding, Charles Ross Perlee (conductor, San Francisco Opera and Bremen Opera), and several other respected teachers and coaches.

I have an Emmy® for writing, I'm a former TV Arts & Entertainment news host and producer, NPR radio station affiliate jazz show host, and a former columnist for The Los Angeles Daily News. I'm a working spoken voice-over talent and an active member of SAG-AFTRA and AGMA.

Patricia is the teacher you need if you are serious about taking your singing to the next level. Her classes are challenging but she is patient. With each of her classes I learn valuable skills and techniques that I will use forever. She is truly a pro at what she does. Plus, she's fun! I couldn't imagine a better vocal coach.

About Zach
Hi! I'm a television and theatre actor-turned award-winning director and screenwriter. I've done theatre in New York and all over the world (including touring in "Les Misérables" and being an original cast member of "Heathers: The Musical"), and I've acted in television shows like "Switched at Birth" (ABC Family), "The Good Wife" and "How I Met Your Mother" (CBS).

I moved behind the camera in 2014, and have since directed 3 multi award-winning independent short films, as well as writing original screenplays in various stages of purchase and development for feature film production and primetime television.

I absolutely love to teach and have for many years along the way of my career. I've helped students explore their passion and hone their acting skills in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, my native Oregon, and even in South Africa.
I genuinely believe that anyone can act if given the right tools to have confidence in what they uniquely bring to the stage or the set. I look forward to sharing my all-encompassing perspective on acting with you and setting your talent loose on the world!

Zach is perhaps one of the smartest and most well rounded artists I've met. He has experience in all aspects of the business, from being an actor to a producer and to an award winning director, which makes him an unbelievable resource and teacher. I always look forward to our time together because I feel supported, heard, seen and never judged. He is always one step ahead which allows for very productive sessions. I leave our sessions feeling confident and fully prepared for whatever may come my way in auditions. I've worked with many people in this business and you do not come across people like him often. I feel incredibly grateful that I have Zach as a coach and resource. I cannot recommend him enough or give him higher praise.

I've been working with Zach for the past 3 months and he has done amazing things for me, in terms of how to transition from working in theatre to being in front of the camera. Zach isn't like other teachers in LA, he's a true mentor and passionate about getting to know you as an artist in order to help yo ubring truth to your acting.
