I offer private lessons and performance workshops that are designed to help students deal with the many aspects of vocal performance. These include picking the right material, working with musical accompaniment, finding the right keys for your songs, how to deal with performance anxiety, microphone technique and connecting deeply to your material. We also focus on warm ups , cool downs and vocal technique issues where needed. Lessons are customized to fit the individual needs of the students.

I've been teaching private vocal instruction since 2003, and opened my own studio in 2008. I love helping people find their true, authentic voice, which I feel is essential not only for singers but many other people as well! Singing is a great joy, and the voice is one of our primary modes of expre

Andrea is a kind and patient instructor. When I took my first lesson with Andrea, I hadn't sung in years. By the end of that lesson, I already felt like I'd improved a great deal. She gave me the tools to continue growing as a musician.
I've had several voice teachers and Andrea is among the best. Her teaching style is very clear and accessible. She also has a great understanding of the voice as an instrument and won't push you to do more than your voice is ready for in a given lesson.

Andrea helped me prepare for my first vocal performance. I was new to singing and she was a very patient and helpful teacher.

Stephanie is one of the most talented vocalist and skilled teachers I have ever worked with.

She took me to places I didn't realize I could go and always showed her confidence in me.

Highly recommended!
Amy
Stephanie is absolutely amazing!!!! I originally went to school for music, but have not sung in a very long time (talking years) and had forgotten most of what I had learned. I was so happy to find Stephanie to help me brush up (a lot)! She showed so much patience and so much knowledge. Thank you so much for an amazing lesson!! I can't wait until my next lesson with you!

Stephanie is a very skilled vocal coach. She is also an amazing performer!

"Wendy was the best instructor ever. Always very humble, sweet & honest. She truly teaches from the heart and genuinely wants one to do better than the lesson before. She knows what she is talking about and explains thouroughly what needs to be worked on. She not only corrects you but praises you when you have achieved something great. You will always have her support & knowledge that will take you a long way."

"I hired Danny to help me in the studio. I was recording about 3 songs I needed help with. On these original songs, I had been working on with another coach unnamed that had me do scales and but after hours of recording, the coach didn't know what else to say except breathe deep. With Danny in about 15-20 min, we were able to knock out my songs easily. Danny isn't your average instructor. He actually goes beyond scales. Some of my issues in were singing close to my break and certain phrases were hard to work with. Others were as basic as the way I was standing. I am impressed."

"Karen’s recitals, showcasing 6 to 12 students each time, always thrill
me. Men, women, boys, & girls of all ages and various degrees of
achievement stand before their audience with confidence. They have
practiced, not only the pieces which they play, but showmanship, not
pushy or cocky, but polite and welcoming. They make eye contact and
smile; some invite the crowd to sing along on the choruses. Even the
1st year students exude confidence.

The crowd returns those smiles, along with cheers and clapping. One
can tell that Karen has kindly and persistently shown and encouraged
each student. If any show fear, she does not chide; she accompanies
them in the performance and nods approval as they continue. I watch
that fear subside. They are then met with handshakes and pats on the
back. Next time, they will be even more eager to share the pieces that
they worked on and not expect criticism.

Karen picks a theme and arranges guitar, piano, and voice selections,
intermingled into a program that leaves a person well entertained and
planning to come back next time. I am not related to any of the
participants and have no obligation to be at the recitals. I love the
music, the talent, and the progress that I see and hear. You, too,
will be glad you came."

"I've rehearsed and performed with Vandi Enzor in a chamber setting per the requirements of her graduate voice degree. I accompanied her on guitar as she sang; the specific piece was the Seven Popular Spanish songs by the great Spanish composer Manuel de Falla. Vandi is professional, patient, hard working, receptive, and musical. Her great command of her instrument is evident, and more than that she has genuine joy in what she does. Collaborating with her was a pleasure, and I can't recommend her enough for musical instruction. A true professional."

"Quite Simply The Best.

With all of the music teachers in LA and the world, it is difficult to choose the best. With Fawn, I believe 100% that I have found the best. She is well educated, well rounded and versed in all the musical styles, up on the latest musical trends, yet knows the composers, songwriters and vocalists of yesteryears. She is passionate, fun, compassionate, patient, loving, kind and has a college degree from the 2 top music schools in the world. She has a thorough understanding of music theory, performance, voice, piano and the many ins and outs of the music industry. She is able to teach her students the theory behind the songs they are learning to play, sing, write and record. She is great at sharing the musical journey with her students, guiding them with honesty, tender care and knowledge. My daughter has grown leaps and bounds with Fawn and absolutely loves her. She’s helped change her voice into her authentic voice, taught her how to get over stage fright, how to turn her poems into song lyrics and how to produce her own vocals in the recording studio. She is quite simply, the best."
