Eulis K.

Anaheim, CA

About Eulis

--------------- I also teach Online via Skype or FaceTime! --------------------
Hello! Thanks for visiting my Takelessons profile. Let me start off by telling you a bit about myself:
I have been performing for over 20 years as a musician, acting since I was a small boy, and working consistently with public speaking, accent reduction and other presentational skills throughout my career. I started my musical education as a woodwind player and settled in to the wonderful world of singing over time. Music has opened me up to so many incredible opportunities from touring the world to performin
g in marvelous concert halls and working with some of today's most respected artists, as well as giving me the opportunity to expand my performance skills through acting in various plays, musicals, television, and film.

Performing has absolutely been my salvation! Throughout my life it has been a best friend and constant source of joy, and I share this gift with others so that it might help them to find the same joy. After more than 10 years of teaching, I have so many new experiences to draw from and share with my students. I've spent the last 8 years performing with Disney in Anaheim and abroad in their Tokyo Disney cast, and I must say that those experiences, vast and varied as they are, have given the word "performance" a new depth. I'm always excited to dive into every lesson with fresh ideas that will mesh well with many tried and tested teaching techniques.

Originally from Los Angeles, I now reside in Orange County and I'm especially proud to have expanded my studio to serving clients all over the world with online lessons via Skype and FaceTime! I get such joy from sharing my experiences with a diverse group of people from all walks of life.
If you're interested in learning more about my lesson style, feel free to contact me and I'd be happy to talk with you about a plan to help you reach your goals!

For Students of Voice: Teaching Style

Over the past several years I have focused much of my personal growth on developing my ears' ability to pick out and pinpoint vocal “placement”, resonance, subtleties of timbre, changes in pitch, breath support, air speed and flow, pronunciation and diction, and in general, the way in which all of these work together to create style. From these assessments, I work with the student’s particular needs to address each area individually and based on the learning style of each person.
To illustrate to the student their method as I see and hear it, as well as ways in which they might make changes to facilitate the ease of singing --be they changes of tessitura (range), length of phrase, tone color, the release of unnecessary tension etc.-- I make use of vocalise (vocal exercises), simile and metaphor, examples from recorded performances, demonstration, self assessment, and techniques to “trick” the voice into acting in a different way, in addition to videos, diagrams, and texts on anatomy and physiology. I feel that all of these tools provide a unique and personalized learning experience for each student.

After working with Eulis for 7 months my voice has undergone a complete transformation. It's clearer and stronger than I could have imagined in such a short time. Working with Eulis is very collaborative, he works with me to make sure singing is easy, efficient, and most importantly comfortable. I can tell he has a wide range of experience and influences because he's good at explaining how to achieve a different sound or style while maintaining good technique. He is very passionate about the voice and is always eager to help make wonderful music.

Drum · In studio
I grew up taking lessons with Evan, studying with him all through middle school and high school before moving away for college. I’m now a professional drummer and percussionist touring the world regularly with various bands and teaching 25 students a week when I’m home in Seattle. Lessons with Evan were great! He helped me to become a well-rounded drummer and musician, making sure I developed a solid foundation with proper technique, rudiments, good feel, and knowledge of various styles, influential bands, drummers, etc. Once I turned 16 and got my license, I would rarely miss an opportunity to see Evan’s jazz trios or quartets perform. Studying with Evan was the full package: education, inspiration, life lessons… I still have my notes and assignments after all these years, and I incorporate many of Evan’s ideas and exercises into my own teaching. I highly recommend Evan as an instructor and I hope your journey is as enjoyable as mine.

Evan is not only an incredible drummer, but also a great teacher! As a professional drummer and drum instructor myself, I choose very closely who I go to for my personal drum lessons. Evan is one of the only teachers I trust to give instruction and guidance in the areas I truly need the help. This takes a ton of professional experience, as well as skill. He has a way of breaking simple as well as extremely complicated subjects, exercises, rhythms, styles -you name it- down in a way to help me to accomplish things I never thought I could do on the drums. With me, Evan has a way of uncovering and exposing my bad habits, but then fixing them, thus making me a better player. This is always done in a friendly encouraging way. In my opinion Evan Stone is not just a teacher, but a guru of the drums! The proof is not only in his playing but also in his teaching!
