Leah L.

Glendale, CA

Feel confident in your ability to perform in front of an audience!

About Leah

Hi! My name is Leah and I provide Beginner to Intermediate lessons in voice and piano. I am a professional singer/songwriter/recording artist with 10 years of training in voice and 12 years of training in piano. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Business from Anderson University (Anderson, Indiana) where I studied voice with Dr. Jeffrey Ballard and piano with Professor Ken Chan. I have spent the last 10 years singing, performing, writing, and recording professionally, and I love to share my musical passions with my students.

*** Lesson Details ***
By taking voice lessons with me, y
ou will increase your vocal range, learn correct breathing methods and healthy practice/warm-up exercises, and gain confidence in your performance skills, all while singing the songs and music styles YOU enjoy. Our lessons will be fun, interesting, and beneficial.

With piano lessons, you will learn music theory (including scales, chords, time signatures, key signatures, etc.), exercises to increase dexterity, and how to play the songs YOU want to play. I typically use the Faber curriculum for my piano students, but this may vary depending on each student's needs and interests.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to provide a piano or working electric keyboard for us to use during the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
In voice lessons, I specialize in teaching contemporary styles- pop, blues, soul, gospel, etc.

In piano lessons, I have much experience in working with beginners, both children and adults, but will work with students up through the intermediate level.

Rosita R.

Los Angeles, CA

From Musical Theater to Rock Concerts I'm the go to girl with over decades of both Musicals and Pop concerts. My methods will help over come Stage fright, tips to overcome stage jiggers and how to utilize the stage.

About Rosita

I have been singing and studying voice for over 23 years since I was a child! I hold a Bachelors from Musicians Institute and other accomplished degrees from American Musical Dramatic Academy to conclude my quest for vocal excellence and the ability to sing in multiple languages ( English, Spanish, Japanese and Italian) I have been lucky enough to study with some of the top teachers in the country and now I bring the experience I have gained directly to you!
I am proud to share my student's vast array of musical successes. From being cast on short anime films and musicals to being accepted in
to prestigious performing arts academies to conquering the Karaoke scene. My passion for multiple languages and love of music is the desire driving me to share the gifts for teaching young children to open the door to their own musical abilities and hidden artistic desires. I am currently writing a musical which will be debuting in 2020. I'm currently the vocal coach and choir director at Iglesia Elim Central.

I will make sure my students have fun and help them get in the right track to their musical goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
I do my absolute best to create a positive atmosphere for my students. Even when the students feel frustrated or stressed, it is important to inspire them and give them the fuel that they need. Though I am strict when it comes to homework and their about their studies. Every lesson at the beginning I will review what we learned previously and test them.
then begin with proper breathing technique exercises, the cornerstone of all vocals. We move on to vocal exercises to condition the voice. Then we work on the songs that you are eager to sing!

I will use a piano when doing vocal warm ups and conditioning exercises. Students that play other instruments and accompany themselves when performing (such as a guitar) are encouraged to bring that instrument to their lessons. My goal is for them to gain the knowledge that they need to help reach their artistic goals.
With all my lessons every student will be taught a basic run down of Music Theory. My students will always progress in what they do. They will have the discipline that they need and yet have fun and be filled with inspiration. Which is the most important thing, to be Inspired to do better.

*** Studio Equipment ***
iMac, condensing mic...performing mic, keyboard, mixer...living room of apartment.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I do have a portable keyboard. Though I do expect the student to have their own recording device and karaoke tracks. At Home I do have a studio, and if the students has an iPod or an Mp3 player I can attach it to a device where all of us can hear the tracks. I do have a recording studio as well.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Musical Theatre, and Pop rock genres. When I teach my students I always have them learn a song of another language whether it's Spanish or Japanese. It helps with diction when they learn a song outside the English Language. Also It helps them to learn another Language at the same time. Also I give them a little anatomy class when they are learning how to sing. I give them a model of the vocal Chords and different areas of the Larynx and which part works for the chest voice and the head voice.

Norman was extremely qualified and talented. His lessons were suited to my individual needs and he answered the questions and worked with me to make the most out of my level and limited lesson time. I have learned a great deal and this experience with Norman was well worth the time and money. I am grateful for his lessons.

Regina G.

Glendale, CA

The class is essentially for students who have at least some basic knowledge of piano and music theory. Music performance is like a workshop class to radically improve the performing skills of the student. I will focus on specific techniques which will help the student perform more effectively. An intermediate level of piano is recommended for the class.

About Regina

I hold a Doctorate Degree in Music and Advanced Performance from Yerevan State Conservatory. With more than 15 years of professional teaching experience, I am able to offer my students a diverse range of educational resources. I teach piano, performance, and music theory. Currently, I am a theory and piano teacher at a Russian Music Academy in Orange County.

Sara J.

Los Angeles, CA

The preparation for performing is very important when giving a concert or recital, solo or not. You must learn how to conduct yourself (how to walk on stage with confidence, bowing, etc.), how to convey to the audience what it is you are trying to present to them (musicality, emotion, etc.), and how to interact with other performers on stage with you (orchestra, quartet, etc.)

About Sara

Sara J originated from Pasadena, CA where she began her musical studies at the age of 7. Not only was she involved with her school's music programs, she performed with groups such as the Crown City Symphony (formerly known as the Crown City Chamber Players) and the Pasadena Summer Youth Chamber Orchestra, and took violin lessons for five years with violin instructor Roberta Wilcox.

After transferring from Pasadena City College, (studying with, violinist and conductor, Andrei Ganea and, member of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Paul Stein) she received her Bachelor's of Music degree in Perform
ance from the University of Redlands under the instruction of Pavel Farkas. In April 2014, she graduated from the Master's of Music program at the University of Redlands earning a degree in Violin Performance under the instruction of Jeanne Skrocki.

She has performed with orchestras like the Coachella Valley Symphony, Redlands Symphony Orchestra, and Pasadena Summer Youth Chamber Orchestra. She is also involved in a Piano Trio and has performed as a Colonial Fiddle Musician on Riley’s Farm in Oak Glen at the Hawk’s Head Tavern. You may also find Sara playing many events as part of a string quartet throughout the Coachella Valley, Inland Empire, and Los Angeles county.

Ms. J is very passionate for music and tries to instill that same passion into her students by teaching them both the technicality and musicality of different pieces. She believes that when one learns how to play an instrument, one must also learn the principles of music in general. When a musician knows every facet of a piece they are playing, performing the music becomes a deeper experience for the performer and audience, whether that piece be a Beethoven Concerto or Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. She strives to help the students become very knowledgeable, not only in playing the violin itself, but also in music theory, history, ear training, wise practicing, and performance etiquette.

Music Criticism: How To Handle a Critical Audience

Years ago, I heard my first band would be featured in the local paper and I was so excited to read the article. I hurried home to read it and found that the short blurb was far from complimentary.
