Melissa J.

Camarillo, CA

About Melissa

Melissa has been singing all of her life. She began her vocal training at a very cute age, learning every song she heard, and passionately performing them for friends and family. She later went on to pursue a formal education in Classical Vocal Performance and Jazz technique from California State University, Los Angeles. While completing her Bachelors degree, Melissa was fortunate to have worked with many established artists, bands and producers of various styles, including jazz, blues, rock, pop, soul and funk. These collaborations have allowed her to hone her own voice and successfully pu
rsue professional work.

Melissa has enjoyed the opportunity of lead local elementary school music programs, and has most recently expanded her private vocal studio Sing Your BEST Self to include skills training in piano, music theory and ear training.

Melissa specializes in LIVE improvisational performance, and can be seen performing under a stage name around the Ventura County and Los Angeles areas. Additionally, She is an accomplished songwriter, and has lent her voice to many recording projects, art collaborations, as well as, T.V. and Film.

*** Lesson Details ***
I thoroughly enjoy sharing what I've learned about music. In my voice studio, students will master the fundamentals of the voice to ensure natural, healthy singing. In my teaching approach, I seek to provide a complete experience, in which, standard vocal technique is taught with the whole singer in mind, with specific attention to the individual students needs and goals.

Singing should be enjoyable for the singer as well as the listener. Helping students to experience that joy is my intention. Music lessons are fun, energetic, and productive. You will become an empowered musician and learn to Sing Your BEST Self!

*** Studio Equipment ***
recording studio/performance space: students of all ages, keyboard, mirror, stools, dry erase board

*** Travel Equipment ***
Onsight lessons are at teacher's discretion and are reserved for advanced students, and pre-arranged coaching sessions related to student learning goals.

*** Specialties ***
I am classically trained singer and teach from that method. I perform Jazz/ blues, soul/ funk and can teach these styles with applied pedagogy. I perform often and would also enjoy coaching in more modern styles of music that require microphone and stage technique. Additionally, hands on vocal recording technique would be of interest to me.

Melissa J is patient, warm, and intelligent

I can easily recommend Melissa J. She is bright, warm, patient and enthusiastic about teaching music. Our son instantly connected with her, and he has remembered every single thing she has taught him. If he had his way, he would take a lesson with her everyday! Big thanks !

Rob S.

Camarillo, CA

About Rob

Originally from Chicago, I attended Chicago Musical College for 2 years before moving to Calif. and receiving my B.A. in music from Cal. State Northridge. I also have an M.A. in Education from there. I have been a band director in public schools for over 40 years. My bands have won over 50 1st place awards in music competitions. I have been playing keyboard professionally since the age of 14. I truly enjoy working with both kids and adults on a one on one basis, and provide a relaxed and friendly, yet goal-oriented experience.

*** Lesson Details ***
In each lesson,students will work on te
chnique, music theory, and learn pieces (both from the method book and from supplementary material). I choose material for each student to use based on age, ability, and interest. I don't use a "one size fits all" curriculum. Although lessons are relaxed, I do expect students to do their part and work on the assigned materials at home. In addition,I enjoy playing along with students as soon as possible.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music Room: upright piano, chair, sports memorabilia, room for parents to sit in on lesson

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect students to provide instrument (except piano) and music (which I would select)

*** Specialties ***
Can teach any school band instrument and keyboard

Good instructor, goes at your pace/ability level

I've only been taking lessons with Rob for 3 weeks, but so far so good. After an 18 year hiatus from playing the flute, I decided it was time to go back to it. He's customized the lessons to go as fast as I am able to pick it up, as it is coming back to me quickly. I appreciate not getting stuck in a "set" order of lessons. He's knowledgeable, professional, a genuinely nice person and he is a very good, easy to understand instructor.

Christopher C.

Camarillo, CA

About Christopher

Hi! My name is Christopher, or Chris for short. I am a composer, arranger, pianist, vocalist, and private tutor. I have taught private lessons in classical and contemporary piano performance, vocal performance, guitar performance, music theory, and musicianship to local students for the past 5 years. I currently attend CSUN'€™s school of music where I am a year away from obtaining my Bachelor'€™s of Music in Composition. My other experience includes teaching Confirmation classes to teenagers at St. Jude'€™s church for 2 years, and teaching English to Japanese high school students through the R
otary Youth Exchange Program.

*** Lesson Details ***
My philosophy when it comes to doing anything with music is that it should be fun! Whether you're practicing a piece, playing with a band, writing something new, or even learning music theory, music is primarily about enjoying yourself and the others around you. The same is true of my lessons!

The best way to ensure that you enjoy yourself is to learn what you want to learn and play what you want to play. In addition to a standard curriculum, I want you to tell me what kind of music you're interested in and what kind of pieces you want to play! Do you love classic rock? Do you love pop? Blues? Jazz? Folk tunes? Opera? Or maybe you're a lover of the classical masters? Whatever the case may be, my number one goal is to make sure you're having fun while you develop your new talents.

I'm comfortable teaching students as young as 7 years of age, although I can teach even younger if they are especially well-behaved.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, Blues, Jazz, Improv, Original composition

My Favorite Piano Teacher!

Chris is an unbelievable piano teacher! He always makes sure we are working on something that I enjoy which keeps me motivated. He is very patient (which is great since I'm kind of a slow learner!) and is always willing to go over things as many times as I need.

Chris also has such a great passion for his music so a lot of the times my absolute favorite part of our lesson is when we are finished and I ask him to play me some of his own newly composed songs!

Rebecca-Lynn S.

Camarillo, CA

About Rebecca-Lynn

Pepperdine University Graduate, I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Piano Performance and English Literature, and am excited to enrich others with the indispensable knowledge of music. Studying and performing Classical Piano for the past 17 years, I have had the opportunity to perform with the Pepperdine Orchestra, in Piano Master Classes under the direction of established pianists Jura Margulis, Daria Rabotkina, and Jeffrey Siegel, and also in Heidelberg’s Music Program in Germany in 2011. Teaching music lessons for the past 6 years, I have found that both student and teacher benefit from
this educational process, and the continued opportunity to expand musical knowledge is an extraordinarily beneficial process. Inspired by the challenging and creative aspects that music presents, I am incredibly excited to help foster the love for this unique art in you!

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are taken at your own pace; you will get out of it what you put into it. I aim to inspire and motivate the student in an easy-going atmosphere, with emphasis placed on musicality and understanding basic theoretical concepts. Lesson plans include a brief overview of musical theory, technical studies, and repertoire enhancement. Music is a challenge that can be approached with passion and enthusiasm, and I am confident that when you become passionate about a goal, achievement follows shortly thereafter. Believing that success is relative to how much enjoyment is experienced in the process, I strive to make this an enjoyable adventure for you!

Title to my review.

I'd like to first point out that I knew the entire time how to write a review; I just wanted to wait until our last lesson was over to write it. Now that our 8th and final lesson is finished, I give all of my praise to Rebecca for helping me understand the astonishingly intricate piano. Her guidance and wisdom gave me the desire to pursue a minor in musical performance at the college i'm attending. To sum all of this up, because I only have a certain amount of space to fit a review that could be as long as The Count of Monte Cristo! Consider this my 5 star, 10 out of 10 approval of this women not only as a mentor, but as a friend as well, and I hope that whatever path she leads, that it be as uplifting as the one I took in our lessons together.
