Michelle G.

North Hollywood, CA

About Michelle

VOCAL COACH
Rehabilitating and strengthening voices are two of my top specialties, and each lesson will have specific exercises tailored to helping you transform your voice into the highest and best version of your instrument. I work with singers signed to labels as well as the indie artist just starting to find his/her voice, style, and signature sound. My coaching approach incorporates some of the newest technologies that have shown extraordinary results in breaking down the inner blocks of each artist. It is a tremendously joyful and fulfilling experience to watch as my students really let
their instrument shine brightly, boldly, and with an aboslutely stunning groundedness as they discover how powerful they truly are.

MUSICIAN/SONGWRITER/PERFORMER

Poised, energized, and armed with unforgettable performance ability, Michelle G. is a firework in the artistic arena. Her training began at the young age of 3 with the violin, and a few years later received classes for piano and voice. Excelling in all three, Michelle developed a very passionate and dramatic personality that eventually led her to more dramatic genres such as opera and stage acting. Her aptitude to understand human emotions and relationships gives her a wide spectrum to play in as an actress. There is an organic flow to her interpretations both as an actress and musician that leads the audience to feel her emotional current. Her honest characterizations introduce deeper perspectives on what seems like the ordinary roles and storylines. Amongst the many other leads that she has played, her participation in roles like “Susanna” in The Marriage of Figaro, or “Donna Elvira” in Don Giovanni embody much vibrancy and integrity.
Through the development of her voice as a singer and actress, she has crossed over into other media such as voice over commercial work and vocals for pop/main stream music productions. She has recently participated as a vocalist and violinist in the albums of artists such as international jazz pop artist David Longoria, Latin pop singer Erick Bolivar, Grammy-nominated percussionist Souhail Kaspar, and American Idol’s Seysha. Over the last few years she has unraveled her musical skills as a songwriter/composer/arranger and has even had some small victories acquiring music placements on TV shows (NCIS, short film “Sumtin’ Like Dat”, The Dictator) for herself and some of her colleagues. Her singing can also be heard on the hit tv show "Jane The Virgin", "Castle" and "Shameless" amongst others.

Education
Michelle completed her Associates of Arts for Music/Music Education at the age of 18, and got later graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Miami with a Bachelor's of Arts for Musical Theater and Music Business, as well as from Florida International University with a Master's of Music in Vocal Performance.

*** Lesson Details ***
I tailor my lessons to my student's needs, style, abilities, and goals. Learning is truly a fun and passionate adventure for me, and my enthusiasm has consistently been a contagious quality :) I love to challenge myself & my students to discover how immense their true potential is, and I create a safe and fun environment to explore such facets.

My curriculum is combination of solid tradition (Suzuki method for piano & violin, and Bel Canto technique for singing) interwoven with pop-culture, and modern influences. Within the first 3-6 months, my students will know the basic building blocks of music - which includes scales, arpeggios, triads, intervals, technique, and performance repertoire; and for my singers this will include proper breath technique, tone placement, support, very often increased vocal range (both high and low), and will feel significantly stronger vocally and more confident getting up to sing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Full size Keyboard, mics, pro tools, Violin (electric, acoustic, and Chinese Ehru)

*** Specialties ***
Specialties include:
- Audition technique and prep
- Vocal Technique
- Violin Pedagogy

Samara K.

North Hollywood, CA

About Samara

Hi!

I'm Samara!

I coach everyone from high-profile professionals to young artists at the beginning of their career. Each session with me is always personally tailored to your progression, your type, taste in material, and preferred learning method in developing your craft.

I've trained formally for many years, holding a Bachelors in Fine Arts (Theatre) from NYU Tisch School of the Arts and a Masters in Fine Arts (Acting) from The American Repertory Theatre at Harvard University.

I'm a proud member of SAG-AFTRA and The Actor's Equity Association, having worked professionally in N
ew York, LA, Miami, and Moscow in award winning Theatre, Television, Film, and Voice Over.

Each client I take onto my roster holds a special place in my life as a coach. I serve not only as a teacher of the craft, but as a mentor you can turn to at any time regarding any facet of your journey as a working actor. I support my clients through auditions, workshops, headshot decisions, agent meetings, and major milestones in their blossoming careers.

Many of my clients begin coaching unsure of their skill and place in the industry, but in only a few sessions, mold into artists with authority, staking their claim in prestigious training programs, arts colleges, and roles in professional theatre, TV, commercials, and film.

My overarching ambition is to open the channels that allow you to flow freely in life and art, encourage you to take meaningful, rewarding risks, and unleash the confident performer inside of you waiting to emerge.

At the age of fifteen, Ms. Regina graduated with honors from the Z. Paliashvili Special Music Gymnasium for Gifted Children in Tbilisi, Georgia. As a student of a famous Georgian pianist, Tengiz Amirejibi, she presented her country in numerous competitions. (Tengiz Amirejibi was a student of Heinrich Neuhaus, a famous Russian teacher and pianist.)

As a child, Ms. Regina gave many solo recitals and concerts with the Georgian Symphonic Orchestra. Ms. Regina earned her Doctorate of Musical Arts with emphasis on Advanced Piano Performance from the Yerevan State Conservatory. After graduating,

This combination allows each student to work at a pace comfortable for him/her, and helps all students make significant progress in the areas of sight reading, ear training, and performance skills.

Janette F.

Burbank, CA

About Janette

I am a Texas certified bilingual teacher specialized in elementary testing grades in the math, reading, writing and science content areas. I tailor my teaching and use hands-on, visual, and auditory tools to give learning opportunities to my students according to their learning style. I have worked with students that have dyslexia, reading fluency deficiency, reading comprehension difficulty, lack math problem solving skills and many other learning obstacles that can lead to a student’s frustration and lack of motivation to continue learning.
My goal is to ensure that every student I come
in contact with has the necessary tools to be successful in their academic careers and surpass the hurdle of standardized testing.
I have two degrees, one in Public Relations and Spanish from the University of Houston and one in Bilingual early childhood though fourth grade teaching degree from the University of St. Thomas.
