About Jennifer
My name is Jennifer. I got my degree in vocal performance and minored in Jazz. I began voice lessons myself when I was eight. I am a mezzo soprano, and can teach both female and male voices. I have performed in several opera productions including but not limited to The Marriage of Figaro, Dido and Aeneus, Tenderland, and Hand of Bridge. I have worked and performed in masterworks by Brahms, Chopin, Mozart to name a few. I studied in French, English, Spanish, Italian, and German. I studied diction, ear training, piano, music history, pedagogy, and music theory. I have also performed with artists such as New York Voices, Bobby Mcferrin and Kurt Elling. I was blessed with many learning opportunities to grow in my passion and I would love to pass that knowledge and passion to anyone who wants to learn.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are de
signed around the needs of each student. The first lessons is always spent testing range, knowledge and abilities already known by the student. Then the student weighs in on what kind of music they would like to learn and what they hope to gain from the lessons. Theory and ear training are incorporated into the lessons. We work on breathing, technique and style. Generally we start with English or Italian. We work on vocal performance from a classical standpoint but Jazz and Broadway can also be taught if desired by the student. Scales and exercises are given each week to be worked on until the next lesson. A recording device is encouraged if the student cannot play the piano. Also, a voice note book to take notes during the lesson to be used during practice during the week.

*** Specialties ***
classical voice and jazz voice.

Jennifer was fantastic with my novice-level, 6-year old daughter. She was patient and made sure my daughter understood the lesson every step of the way. Consequently, my daughter stayed engaged and thoroughly enjoyed her first lesson with Mrs. Jen!

I began voice lessons at the age of 5. I started singing opera at age 8 and have won scholarships, state competitions, and numerous awards performing on stage throughout the years. However, my great love is in teaching, being "behind the scenes" and helping others reach their potential. With more than 20 years of experience, combined with amazing teachers, I have accumulated an array of knowledge about the voice. I can also teach you how to accompany yourself with your chosen instrument. The truth is, anyone can sing! The breath is what holds the key to unlocking the amazing potential of your voice, and with practice, you can allow the voice to express your own unique individuality. All voices are different and beautiful, and it is the job of a voice teacher to help you reveal to you your own voice through proper technique, getting in touch with your body, and with "allowing" your voice to shine. There is a special voice/breath technique that was shown to me by one of my teachers, ...

About Amanda
Hello everyone! My name is Amanda O., and I am a Harpist, Voice teacher, Therapeutic Musician, Life Coach, Alternative Medicine Practitioner, and Vocalist who has over 21 years of experience as a classical vocalist and performer. By 8 years old, I began training as an opera singer and have merged my love of classical vocals with the therapeutic harp. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Diego State University, with my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and am currently in my graduate program at Chaminade University of Honolulu studying to obtain my Masters of Science in Counseling Psychology. I graduated from the International Harp Therapy Program as a Certified Therapeutic Harp Practitioner and have completed an internship at Apreva Hospice. I have experience playing therapeutic harp music at over 30 different facilities around San Diego, such
as Narzerath House, Bay View, Bella Vista, Monte Vista Village, and La Mesa Health Care Center, as well as making In-Home visits. I also have experience playing therapeutic music at over 20 facilities in Oahu, Hawaii, where I currently reside. These include independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing, and memory care facilities! I also have experience playing for the actively dying for hospice and consider it an honor to be of musical assistance for people in transition.

I love to teach and can make my harp and voice lessons unique to each individual based on their current skill level. I love watching people expand and grow through music. Your lessons will be engaging, compassionate, fun, and organized! Each lesson will encourage you to become excited about your musical growth and inspire you to continue. I offer something unusual for a harp teacher in that I can teach both improvisation and music theory for the harp. This means that you will get the best of both worlds!

I also have obtained education from the Self-Heal School of Herbal Studies here in San Diego, where I have learned about herbal medicine. I am well versed in many alternative therapies (such as E.F.T., mindfulness meditation, therapeutic music, Ayurvedic medicine, amino acid therapy, etc.) and can provide compassion, understanding, and strategies for alleviating suffering as a Life Coach. My education towards my Master's degree in Psychology also helps me increase my understanding of the human condition and offer additional support for anxiety, depression, addiction, and other stresses. I believe that everyone deserves to live a life of freedom, safety, comfort, and relaxation. I hope to provide loving assistance for anyone seeking someone who cares and will put in the time to truly listen and provide helpful feedback.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and please let me know how I can be of service to you!

Olga is very passionate, patient and persistent voice teacher who strives to bring the best in her students. My daughters 10 and 12 started taking lessons with Olga an year ago. We saw phenomenal difference in both of their singing abilities in just few classes. Moreover my 10 year old daughter passed with flying colors ‘The certificate of merit -level 3’ exam and got selected to sing at the MTAC convention. Thank you Olga for your persistence and hats off to your patience. If there is tiny bit of constructive feedback it would be to seek help on organization skills, but being a mom myself I totally can discount that for your caliber of music.

Rachel is professional, approachable, and extremely talented teacher! I definitely recommend her teaching an recording services. I received voice lessons to record for my husband's wedding present. I sang a song called "Still" by Hillsong and accompanied it with my own piano playing. My husband enjoyed the recording very much. Without Reed Vocal Studio, I would not have been able to give the gift of music to my husband. I do not regret having Rachel as my teacher and as my recording engineer. I added my recording on Sound Cloud if anyone is interested in taking a peak at what it is like to record music with Rachel. Let me tell you, she is amazing! Five stars all the way!!

Enjoy :)

I have enjoyed a 25+year career as a professional singer, choral conductor, vocal coach, and songwriter. Classically-trained in the Bel Canto style of singing, I had the unique opportunity to travel the country with artisan parents, performing as a gypsy singer and dancer since I was 14 years old. I graduated from the MN Center for Arts Education, where I more fully developed my songwriting abilities. I have performed with countless musicians and performance companies, crossing all genres, from rock to jazz to world music and beyond. This diverse upbringing has become the foundation from which I teach voice today.

My philosophy is to highlight the individual characteristics of each singer's voice - as unique as their own fingerprints. I build vast repertoires of music for each student, encouraging their personal exploration of musical genres, languages, vocal technique and styles. I also help the budding singer to understand basic concepts in music theory, music history, ...

About Emily
I have been so blessed to enjoy a career as a working vocalist, conductor and educator for my entire adult life.... sharing my deep passion for music, and the power of my voice, with thousands of audience members and students around the globe.

I have performed with professional opera companies, performance art groups, rock bands, world music projects, musical theatre companies, various vocal ensembles, as well as projects of my own creation.

I am the Vocal Director for award-winning performance group, Vox Medusa, and my professional quartet, The Ages. I conduct four children's choirs at Heartbeat Performing Arts Center, where I also also offer private voice. I have conducted choirs for the Minnesota Opera, and taught vocal classes at StageCoach Theatre Arts schools for 15 years.

I sang with famed festival band, Wookiefoot, for 10 y
ears as the featured female vocalist, as well as WF side project, Mad Love. I've been a guest vocalist for many other bands and djs, as well as an accomplished collaborator and songwriter.

I have sung in dozens of languages (36, at last count!), and speak both French and Spanish. I have performed across the US, for audiences of 10,000 and more. I have performed in Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, Iceland, Amsterdam, Germany, and Israel. I am headed to Spain in October 2018 on tour with HPAC, The Ages, and Vox Medusa.

My greatest asset as a singer has been my breadth and diversity of experience.... and THIS is the main foundation of my teaching: to explore the wide range of each voice, to expand our musical interests and knowledge, and to inspire each singer to embrace their own unique sound and sing with deep passion and joy.

Before I met Emily, I didn’t consider myself much of a singer. My voice was very weak, quiet, and poorly supported. I had also convinced myself that I had a very limited range.
