As a beginning saxophone player, the first lesson was just the basics (how to put the instrument together, hold it, and get the correct mouth and lip and finger placement. I was even able to get a few good notes out! Really looking forward to the next lesson. Will definitely purchase longer lesson time in the future, as half hour went by to quickly.

Anne M. Montclair, CA

About Anne

I am a professional, caring, and knowledgeable teacher. I believe that every student is an individual and I approach each lesson with that individual in mind. I have experience with all ages and am educated in many different teaching methods and styles. I am a confident believer that any person can succeed in music and enjoy music at some level. Education I began taking piano lessons when I was six years old and I was hooked. I took lessons for 9 years and then resumed again when I was in college. In fourth grade I picked up the flute and the saxophone because I wanted to play in the school Jazz Band. I then took Alto Saxophone and Flute lessons for 8 years all the way through high school. It wasn't until high school that I caught the singing bug when I joined the women’s choir

A Perfect Match

Committed, kind, intuitive, highly skilled singer and instructor. Anne is perfect for my daughter, Natalie. Anne has time and again gone way beyond what is required in a voice teacher, and has shown ingenuity and patience where needed (most of the time). I would recommend Anne as voice coach for any young aspiring singer. She will inspire, patiently work through any difficulties, and never ever use negative criticism, but always positive suggestions. An amazing and talented young woman.

Robert is a outstanding trumpet instructor. He is not only very knowledgeable, but he knows how to communicate to his students in a way that makes sense. He is very professional but keeps the lessons fun as well.

Robert is great to work with. We were able to identify my vocal range, introduce me to some basic music theory and help identify ways to expand my air capacity all within just a few lessons. I'm looking forward to each one and furthering my knowledge.

Varin I. Montclair, CA

I've been coaching singers for a little over 5 years and my students have gone on
to perform solos at their community events. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to breathe and phrase properly and as time goes on you'll be able to vibrato and mix. I specialize in pop music but I could do almost everything. For a reference guide, I typically use The Singing Book by Dayme & Vaughn, Singing for the stars by Seth Riggs, and have the following tools for your lessons: a CD recorder. Each lesson will be recorded onto a cd so you don't have to take notes. If you don't understand something then, you'll might understand some key concepts later on your vocal journey. I love working with students for all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you.

What's inside the lesson?

Lessons revolve around 3 basic aspects which are training, singing, and acting.

In training, definitely be ready for some scale exercises. If you want to work on making your vibrato ...

Hello world, I live in Montclair and go to high school. I always wondered how to sing like the people on TV. I didn't know anybody to trust, plus I was scared. One day I finally got to courage to get help. I begged my parents for lessons because everybody in my family, like my cousins made fun of me. Now they laugh no more. Hehe! Love my voice coach!

I been singing for over 12 years. I was so blessed to have found Varin who was referred by my bass player Alex. Throughout my years of singing, I never found anyone that could maintain my voice when I was on tour. I love working with Varin so much, he is now teaching my son and my little sister. I would definitely recommend him to anyone seriously looking to level up their singing skills....= )

I have been trying to come up with the perfect words to describe this teacher but I can't find anything I feel is good enough, other than the words wonderful and amazing.The way she teaches, and just her presence alone just blows me away, and I couldn't be more thankful to have met her and have the opportunity of her teaching me. If anyone is meant to be a teacher,it would be this person. She is so gifted.. Believe me when I say, if you have any doubt about choosing the right teacher, look no further because you just found her.

Amy has truly changed my life both as a performer and person.She helped me polish my vocal technique and singing methods, in addition to acting and audition coaching. She was very instrumental in helping me pick amazing audition songs and how to really give a memorable performance, even if it's just 16 bars at an open call! Before studying with Amy, I was a bit unfocused and rusty,now I am poised and confident in my singing abilities. Thank you Amy, you are an incredible and inspiring teacher!

Amy is the perfect teacher! She encourages and infuses her students with a feeling of success that makes you want to do more and continue to improve.
I had been having difficulty with vocal confidence and Amy helped me with that immediately. From the first session, I learned things about my approach to singing that I could correct and put to use at the very next opportunity. I have now have a voice because of Amy!
She is a fantastic Teacher and I highly recommend her to students of all ages!
Heidi P. Claremont, CA

My main focus is teaching the student first and foremost to have a free beautiful sound without tension or restraint. If good breathing and free, easy singing can first be established, we can go anywhere from there!

I have a great passion for teaching opera and classical music, but I teach vocal techniques that can be applied to all genres of music. I have been apart of many operas and performances including the roles of Maddalena in the opera Rigoletto, GrimGerde in Ride of the Valkyries, Carmen in the Opera Carmen, and Chorus in Suor Angelica, and La Traviata. I have also been in the Boise Music Week Productions of Hello Dolly, Beauty and the Beast, and Brigadoon.

Heidi is sweet, positive, patient, and encouraging! I started without any experience in singing before taking lessons with Heidi and I can hear the improvement in the way that I sing. She isn't pushy and is willing to work with your own pace. Whenever we're singing or doing breathing exercises, she'll give you analogies to help you understand what you're doing more. I always look forward to her lessons and I'll definitely keep on taking lessons from Heidi! :)

Heidi is the best! From the second I walked into her quaint home, I was enamored by the positive energy she put off and the excitement she had towards helping me achieve my musical goals.

Heidi began our lessons by getting to know me personally, my current musical status, my goals with her and my goals with music in general. It is very endearing to see someone with so much passion, not just for music, but for teaching! Heidi is the fun teacher that everyone likes. She is very humble and kind, and I just can't imagine someone not getting along with her.

Her advice is ideal constructive criticism, never did I feel pressured to sing a certain way or embarrassed if I wasn't hitting my notes properly. She seems to know exactly what to tweak, what mindset to embrace, and what metaphors to use to illustrate better singing. One of these is with singing high notes, she told me to imagine my voice travelling down instead of up, and it made a world of difference!

Heidi knows that proper singing is achieved with breath control and openness in the throat and vocal area, and with this method anyone can become a great singer. On top of all this, she has the BEST price in the entire Inland Empire! If you are just starting or getting back into singing, or if you feel insecure about your voice but don't know where to start, call Heidi. You won't need to look for another voice teacher ever again, I promise. :)
