Tiffini L. Escondido, CA

Speaking in front of a group can be little scary. Together, we will work on preparation, practice, presentation, learn some tricks to ease anxiety when speaking in public.

Do people often ask you to repeat yourself? Trouble with mumbling, or speaking too quietly? Learn tips for clear diction and how to effectively communicate with others. If you're accent is holding you back, we can also work on accent reduction.

I couldn't have asked for a better instructor because I was primarily looking for patience. I have a long time fear of singing and singing in front of people, Tiffini is very patient and easy to work with.

I would like to start off with by saying that Tiffini is an amazing teacher. I have been taking lessons with her for the last year and a half through Skype and each lesson in that time with her has been an enjoyable experience. I started taking speaking voice lessons with her then switched to singing lessons. She was able to help me immensely on both my speaking voice and singing; getting rid of my mumbling for former and helping me to regain confidence in the latter. With both types of lessons she was knowledgeable, encouraging, kind, patient, and a fun teacher to have. I could go on for at least a few pages about Tiffini, but bottom line is that she is a great teacher and I would highly recommend her to anyone who wanted to start taking lessons through takelessons.com.
Carol F. Oceanside, CA

I help students naturally project their voice. Breathing, not straining the voice, sounding confident, pronunciation, dynamics. I've helped business men and women give better presentations, sound better on the phone and give that polished air of confidence.

About Carol

I've sung most of my life. I've been teaching since 1991. I listen to a lot of different singers but my real passion is jazz, Brazilian music and blues. I've performed in the US as well as England and Scotland. I also have recorded 2 Cd's. I teach many different styles of music and work with beginners to advanced. Both of my teaching studios are equipped with a P.A. system so that students can also work on their performance skills. What's the first lesson like? When I first meet a new student I ask about what experience they've had singing. Even beginners sing in the shower or along with their favorite CD's. Finding out what kind of music the student listens to and wants to sing is also a big part of the first lesson. I find that it is more motivating and fun to work on ...

Just before I met Carol for my first singing lesson, I expected to feel embarrassed to sing in front of her. I was quite nervous, actually. But Carol's professional yet fun, laid back manner disintegrated all my trepidation and I left giddy and excited for the next lesson. She is a very encouraging and supportive instructor, and I feel so lucky to have found her!

My daughter had just one lesson with Ms. Ayanna at Chula Vista Best Buy location. Unfortunately, the classes were discontinued at that location, and we couldn't continue with Ms. Ayanna.
Ms Ayanna has a wealth of knowledge, and she is very patient and encouraging. Within a short time she provided tips to improve my daughters breathing techniques ...and did some vocal exercises that made my daughter to literally sweat (My daughter has had 5 years of prior training and this had never happened before :) ) .
I wish the very best to Ms. Ayanna, and to would recommend her to any student.

Ayanna is a "natural" teacher. Intuitive, she helped me remove obstacles to reveal my authentic voice by meeting me where I was and providing generous feedback on multiple aspects of my process. The space in her home is professional, comfortable and flows with good energy. I highly recommend her services!

By far the most wonderful singing instructor I've ever encountered. Salli is very thorough in her teaching but she also makes it VERY FUN! Always encouraging at every lesson which in turn nurtured confidence within myself and my voice. Salli truly cares about the success of each and every one of her students. Always willing to go beyond the call! One instance of this great example was an evening of Karaoke. Salli knew I was deathly afraid of being in front of an audience so to build up my confidence she decided to join me on stage. WOW!!! Studying with Salli goes beyond the Teacher-Student relationship. I also gained a life long friend. I can't thank her enough and am forever grateful to her for always believing in me.

I have been singing since I was a child however never had any proper vocal training until I started taking vocal lessons with Salli. She taught me many helpful techniques with singing from breathing mechanics to how to accurately mouth the words I am singing to project my notes better as well as many other techniques. Over the years I have used her techniques when recording and performing and I have seen my vocal abilities enhance and become way better than they have ever been. Salli is very professional and very knowledgeable in music and singing, and also a very sweet and sympathetic instructor. She really wants to help you perfect your art and will make sure it does happen, as I have seen it happen with me! She is also very patient and you can always discuss with her what you need to work on. I HIGHLY recommend Salli as your musical instructor, she truly enjoys her craft and loves to help her students.

Learning a lot!

Kevin is a very knowledgeable, dedicated, patient, flexible, and professional instructor. He is very observant about when to push me to practice more and when to just allow me space to absorb what I've just been taught. And occasionally when I get a little frustrated with my guitar and progress is particularly slow for me we sometimes switch to vocal coaching.
Plus I have an incredibly busy work schedule and Kevin has always been very willing to adjust my lesson time as necessary.

Great Voice Lessons

I've been trying for a while to get to the level where I can confidently sing, knowing that I am doing the best my voice can attain. Kevin is helping me pull through my bad habits, and re-enforcing the proper technique without drowning out my personal style.

Really helpful! Thanks, Kevin!!
