Resources for Singing in Corona, CA

By Milton J. - Corona Singing Teacher

Are you interested in taking singing lessons in Corona? Look no further than The Circle City! My name is Milton Jackson, and I teach vocal lessons in Corona, CA. With a lively music scene for a well spread-out city and its proximity to world-class attractions, concert halls, amphitheaters, and arenas, there are quite a few places to go to both showcase your talents and be around fans of your favorite acts and artists.

Here are a few points of interest, local music hotspots, and performing organizations in Corona that may help you find wonderful resources to aid you in your singing lessons:

1) Music and Arts Center (http://stores.musicarts.com/corona) – This is our local Sam Ash-esque music shop to find a good selection of sheet music, how-to books, and instruments. If you’re looking for a pitch pipe to accompany you in your singing lessons or a new song to learn with your new TakeLessons teacher, the Corona Music Center is a good place to start.

2) Live From Memphis Piano Bar (http://www.livefrommemphispianobar.com/) – This wonderful bar and restaurant feel like it was plucked from the streets of Memphis. Expect a wide variety of quality entertainment six days a week, from an all-request, sing-along dueling piano show to a headlining concert to a country band! Take a gander, as there’s a good chance you could find yourself performing there!

3) Rockefellas (http://rockefellasbar.com) - If you’re of age and enjoy the dive bar vibe, wonderful live bands strut their stuff on the Rockefellas stage. If you’re a frontman or woman of a band, this is a wonderful gig place for your shows to show off what you’ve learned in your lessons!

4) The Vibe (https://www.facebook.com/TheVibeBarAndGrill) – this Riverside hotspot for the college-age crowd near University of California, Riverside is a great place to discover local R&B, hip hop, pop, and rock talent. Head out for a Friday with your friends and you may find a new artist for collaboration in the future!

5) Fox Theatre and Riverside Municipal Auditorium (http://www.riversidelive.com) – These recently renovated venues are wonderful places to take in a musical or concert. Both theatres bring in top-tier performers, so make sure to check the calendar to see when your favorite show or artist is coming to town!

6) Circle City Chorale/Circle City Singers (http://circlecitychorale.org) - A relatively new choir founded in January 2010, the Circle City Chorale is comprised of singers 18+ from Corona and surrounding areas. They have performed at Corona's 4th of July parade & festivities at Santana Park, at the Empty Bowls fundraiser in Norco, Corona's Day of the Child event, Corona's Tree Lighting Ceremony, Riverside’s Festival of Lights event, and the tree lighting ceremony at Crossroads Church. They have grown in size, repertoire, and audience attendance at their seasonal shows every year, and are a wonderful group to showcase your love for singing!

Milton J.

Corona, CA

About Milton

Music is the means to create a portal into our souls, so that we may see each other for who and what we are, not merely as what we do. I want to help foster those young, middle-aged, and not-as-young how to tap into their own soul portals through music so that they may find others' as well. I believe that in order to entertain others with your voice or your instrument playing, one must first be able to entertain oneself - all the while having fun doing it! As a recent graduate of the University of California, Davis with a double major in Music History & Ethnomusicology and African-American &
African Studies; a former co-host of the popular hip-hop radio show ATF Radio: All Things Fresh on KDVS 90.3 FM; a former Music Director of The Afterglow of UC Davis; and a current Vocal Music Performance graduate student at the University of Redlands, I have come in contact and learned from a vast amount of different musicians and professionals. A classically-trained bass-baritone with roots in R&B, Soul, Rock, Pop, and Jazz, I have aspirations to help each and every student realize their full musical potential.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is very friendly, inviting, and audience-driven. In the beginning, I strive to refer to my presence in the lessons as a fly-on-the-wall, so to speak, in order for my students to get out of their own way and sing as if no one's watching. From there, I apply the audience aspect - singing not only for enjoyment, but for entertainment for yourself and for others as well. If one is able to build that frame of mind in their lessons, their actual performances will not be too far from what they've already dealt with before.

I provide teaching and repertoire books, as well as instrumentation for myself (i.e. guitar, misc. tools for specific lessons). I expect my students to provide a piano (or keyboard equivalent), pitch pipe, and instrument if applicable (i.e. guitar), and, of course, themselves!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Multimedia Home Studio; Keyboard, Classical Guitar, Electric Guitar with Amp

Wonderful instructor! Milton has a great attitude and is a joy to be around. My son loves learning from him and we are very thankful for finding such a patient, creative and skilled instructor. Student's Review - Milton is an exciting and fun guitar teacher. He has exceeded expectations and made otherwise bland lessons interesting and fun. He is always quippy and easy to be around. Having him as an instructor has made me grow to love the guitar even more.

Milton is a great teacher! He explains everything, teaches you theory and proper techniques. He is down to earth and makes you feel comfortable. He pushes you out of your comfort zone, but in a good way so that you can grow as a singer. I am very glad I chose to take lessons with him!

James R.

Riverside, CA

About James

James is a recent graduate who received his Bachelor of Arts in Music with an emphasis in education at Cal Poly Pomona. While at Cal Poly Pomona he was the Director of the Bronco Pep Band, a student conductor for the Concert Band, and also performed with many ensembles including the Jazz Band, Latin/Salsa Band, and the Songwriter Showcase.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back person that believes in the philosophy of "Learn by doing". To me mistakes are not to be shunned but are to be reflected upon in order to improve and develop.

Students will learn to be patient when playing
music as all things take time. Rome was not built in a day. My students will learn to be versatile musicians with knowledge in theory and musicianship.

After spending time with me students will be able to demonstrate their knowledge of music theory and be capable of sight reading basic material. More advanced students will be able to improvise using scales and be able to master the fundamentals of their instrument or their voice.

Great Music Teacher!

James is teaching my daughter how to play the guitar. I'm really pleased with the progress my daughter is making as a result of James' teaching. He knows his guitar and many other facets of music! He is also patient and can properly explain concepts in a way that is easily understood. When it was time for my daughter to buy her own guitar and accessories, James was very helpful with recommendations. He is very professional and has a friendly personality. His influence in my daughter's life has heightened her enthusiasm for both playing the guitar and music in general.

I was trained abroad & has performed to a variety of audiences of different cultures. My experiences helped me understand music as a passion & as a genre. It has inspired me to share those skills & experiences to students, musicians, actors and music enthusiasts to professional artists. Some of my students have joined competitions, talent shows and reality shows; performed on tours as a professional; and entertained in front of family gatherings and in the shower! If you are preparing for a performance, an audition or you just want to learn music and have fun, then I may be able to help you..

Alex has been a joy for my daughter to work with. He has been working with her a little over a year. She has grown in her music but most of all in the life lessons he has taught her along the way. Alex on a weekly basis connect his music lessons to life lessons for Whitney. It's amazing to listen to her play each week as she develops in her music and a joy to watch her maturity in managing life's challenges. He has been a great source of support for her. We love you Alex!!! Your the best.

Valentina W. H.

Chino Hills, CA

About Valentina W.

I am delighted as a music teacher and performer, with excitement and joy when my students really enjoy music. A musician is just like a 'Messenger of Love, Beauty, and Truth', bringing to people what is lovely, truthful and pure.

Learning a musical instrument can open our eyes to see beauty of life, to embrace our sense of being and further, to prove that quality and purpose of life results from more than just physical satisfaction.

For years we find that most studios, limited to resources and the pressure of exams - a competition-oriented approach, provide merely technical training on s
kills, but not a holistic encountering of music. We will try to bring about a different approach:

Without diminishing the skill training, we will enhance the music appreciation training by guiding students to listen to legendary historical recordings on a regular base. Furthermore we'll also encourage our students to reach out together to the communities with our concerts and services, based on the passion to deliver high quality performance. The sole purpose of this approach is to awaken and cultivate our love for music as well as to rectify the purpose of learning classical music.

We hope our students can eventually experience that the purpose of music making , or in a broader view, performing arts, is to enrich our world, physically, emotionally and spiritually. This is the reason we are the messenger of love - the Almighty God.

Music Theory · In studio
Brianne is an incredibly skilled and versatile musician. I was first convinced of her talent when I attended one of her performances. At that point I did not need reviews or anyone else to convince me she has a gift.

I highly recommend Brianne as an instructor. She has taught me a great deal about music theory and composition. Something she offers her students that I haven't found anywhere else is the ability to arrange or compose songs for their skill level. Sometimes learning out of the books isn't enough, and Bri takes her lessons to a much deeper level by providing the music students need to play in order to learn.

In addition to all that I have learned from her over the past year, Brianne has also assisted me in my personal business ventures by composing original music for videos and entertainment segments. If you're looking for someone with diverse talent, she's the one!

Regardless of what instrument you play, taking lessons from Brianne will make you a better musician. I highly recommend her.

Brianne is awesome. She has such a natural talent for music that she can't help but want to share it with others. She really understands music on a fundamental level and easily conveys that knowledge to her students. Over the years, I have worked with Brianne on the piano, flute, and voice, and she has amazed me every single time with her ability to share her talent and to see that same talent flourish and grow in other people. Music is her life and her excitement for it is contagious. I highly endorse her as a musician and as a teacher. You will not regret learning from Bri.

Kari July 28, 2015
Bri is a stellar musician, with an uncanny ability to explain at the most basic level, from simple to advanced concepts musically. I have taught over 40+ years of piano, and she is by far the most exceptional student I have ever had. She is patient, kind, and clear. Her standards are high, but never unattainable. She teaches correct rhythm, note knowledge, theory, and dynamics, as well as musical interpretation, or musicianship. You will not only play or sing notes,but you will create MUSIC with her help. You won't be sorry if you take lessons from Bri.
