Experienced teacher of 20+ years, specializing in the beginner/intermediate piano student! All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be playing songs in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, and more. Let's get started!

For beginners, I highly recommend starting with a 30-minute lesson. Intermediate and advanced should consider 45-minute lessons. 60-min lessons are available but are only recommended on a case-by-case basis. Please take into consideration your student's current skill level when deciding on the lesson length.

I use vocalizes to teach change in the voice and also different types of music to attain a better sound. I try to make it as physical as possible since so much of the effort depends on the brain. I want to help each student achieve their goal. Together we can get to that sound which is uniquely you.

With over 15 years of performance experience, I want to share with you the knowledge that I've gained through my vocal training. My teaching method is easy to grasp and you'll start hearing and feeling a difference in your singing within the first month.
I provide standard 30-50 minute voice lessons. In lessons, I focus on the basics of healthy singing by working to free the voice from unwanted tension and unlocking your vocal potential.

Jacob is an excellent teacher! My 16 year old daughter thoroughly enjoyed taking lessons from him and she significantly improved in both her vocal technique and in her confidence as a singer. He was great at helping her prep for musical theater auditions as well. He’s easy to work with and relates well to his students. He is very supportive and does his best to help his students achieve their goals. I highly recommend Jacob as a vocal instructor.

Jacob was recommended to teach my 9 year old daughter through the University of Redlands Community School of Music program. She could not carry a tune so I requested a professor. They suggested Jacob, and I was so glad they did! In the nine months they worked together, he increased her range and taught her to sing a melody. He always made sure to warm up her voice before performing. Not only that, he tailored her instruction to her needs. I was so pleased that I also hired him to coach my son's for auditions and performances. My older son needed to sing like a munchkin for The Wizard of Oz. He taught him the professional way to sing. The entire theater could hear him clearly without a microphone. I was very pleased with his instruction, and very sorry to lose him. Our loss is your gain!

Hello! I'm very exciting to write a review about Jacob's teaching methods and share my experience with him. I hope you will find it beneficial in choosing him as not only a teacher in vocal training, but also in singing!

The first time I ever saw Jacob was in church as our director. Right from the start, I knew he had professional training in the way he led the congregation. I found myself singing louder and actually trying to follow him! Then, a few weeks after, he stood up during services and sang a solo; my mouth hit the floor! Jacob is seemingly a quiet man so I didn't know what to expect. I mean, I knew how to read music, but could he really sing loud enough for all of us to enjoy! One word: Amazing! After that, I really got to know him in the church choir. Both he and his wife are musically talented and sing beautifully!

My daughter, Tatum, a sophomore in high school, had been singing since she was six -- at home, school, church, and children's theater. She has been in many musicals and loves musicals, but did not have the stamina, nor the expressionism that is really required for stage... and that's what she really wants to do.

As soon as we hired Jacob as Tatum's vocal coach, we had IMMEDIATE results! In her freshman year, Tatum had the confidence and ability to try out for the school play "Hairspray". We were so happy to find out she made it and then even more excited this year when she was chosen as one of four sophomores for her high school choir (that had never been done before)! Recently, she played Sister Margareta in "The Sound of Music" at school. If you know the movie, you know the nuns have very strenuous parts vocally, and Tatum was also known as the "funny" nun so she had to really have confidence in her acting and delivery to get the laughs and while singing -- no less! But the biggest achievement was Tatum being chosen to participate in the All-State High School Choir! This is a five-day conference in which a student has to audition in order to sing with the best of the best in high school. Tatum flew up to San Jose State to attend workshops and sing in the famous Cathedral Basilica of St. Joseph. It was magnificent and I know it could not have happened without Jacob's tutelage and encouragement.

We are very proud of Jacob for obtaining his Master's at the University of Redlands. The university is known for its prestigious music program and has many concerts. During that time, as a member of "The Chapel Singers", Jacob sang with "The King's Singers", a famous a cappella group from London ( View on youtube "The King's Singers - Live - Overture to William Tell". After this performance, one member, Bob Chilcott became a faculty member at the university.

As for his ability to teach, he is comfortable letting you observe (as long as his student agrees). My daughter wasn't so keen on the idea, but he had her so involved in her own technique, she forgot I was in the room. I was able to watch her any time I wanted (a teenager letting mom in)! He taught her how to breathe properly and how to hit those hard and high notes that she never thought she would be able to do.

We were -- and are -- so sad Jacob moved away, but we are so proud of him and proud to have had him as Tatum's teacher. I know that whomever has Jacob as a teacher and mentor will be truly pleased with the results in the immediate improvements.

The best part: of all this: You get to hear Jacob sing!

I've been studying classical piano for about 17 years now. I've played everything from Bach to Ravel. I cover all eras of classical music. Whether you want to learn the complex fugues of Bach, the beautifully difficult pieces of Chopin, or the lush sounds of Debussy.

I have been wanting to learn piano for some time, and was recommended to Mesrop by a friend. He has been very patient with my pace of learning, which isn't always the fastest, and introduced concepts in a really logical and digestible way. Great guy and teacher, highly recommend!

I've always enjoyed playing guitar and bass, but the added element of piano was something that seemed so daunting I convinced myself to let it go. Mesrop was able to break it down so simply for me from the start, and I'm extremely thankful for his patience and focus throughout lessons. Along the way, I picked up more on theory and am now more comfortably able to transcribe as well. I think he's a tremendous musician but an equally excellent teacher.

I personally appreciate his willingness to let me watch/participate and his openness to new ways to approach helping her learn. He handled the differences in what she hears from her band teacher extremely well- being respectful of what the band leader said while explaining why we should really do something different."

"Thanks for letting me provide a reference for Alex. I have taken alto sax lessons from him over the years, starting about 4-5 years ago. Alex is a great musician and teacher. Each lesson was consistently structured for: sound quality and listening, technical work and reading, duets, and improvisation. Rather than heavy music theory, he would instead provide routines to reinforce these concepts. He was always patient, and emphasized what I did well, with subtle redirection to correct problems. I definitely improved under his guidance and teaching.

The only reason I stopped seeing him was that my job became very demanding, and I could not devote enough time to practice and justify the time and cost of lessons. But even when I showed up unprepared, he was understanding and flexible to work with me.

If it would have been possible to have Alex come to me, I would have welcomed that."

"Alethia is an excellent instructor. She taught our son Suzuki book 2 and they are now starting book 3. In my opinion she blends a perfect balance between actual playing, violin technique, and music theory. Lessons begin with both of them playing and then she has him play solo. Any issues he has are handled with positive encouragement and relatable exercises. Lessons also include a suitable amount of music theory so our son understands what he is playing and how music is written. Alethia's approach and attitude are fantastic; I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a violin instructor."
