Arlys A.
I help singers develop powerful, authentic voices. If you want to sing with more ease and freedom, deepen your understanding of your vocal instrument and learn tools to help you become more confident performing in public whether it be singing or speaking, THIS is for you! Optimize your voice by understanding how it works. I use multifaceted exercises to help you find and feel the difference in sound immediately, and we follow-up by with learning daily exercise protocols that help develop the muscular structure to create an easily sustainable vocal resonance.

Safely explore your vocal sound to deliver outstanding auditions and performances: Increase your range, broaden vocal tone, explore dynamics, cultivate calm energy, and feel better about your voice.

Take a deep inhale.....relax your jaw and exhale on "aaahhh". That's how we begin, by relaxing and finding your "aaahh!" space with exercises designed to connect the heart to the science of voice & movement. Let me help you find an easier way to promote your best posture, easiest breath support, best resonance and pitch control. My teaching style is infused with the knowledge that students of voice must be treated with great care and encouragement. Let me help you release your authentic voice!

Reina M.
My name is Reina and I was born and raised in San Diego. I have been recording, performing, studying music since the age of nine.

I first studied and performed jazz. I am very comfortable with standards. I studied classical in college. I believe that classical training is necessary to have a full understanding of your instrument, the same way you would train with sprints if you wish to become a cross country runner. From there personality and tons of practice are key to success in singing.

she`s a really great teacher

Arly has really helped me. I have seen improvement before I started taking lessons and to now. She`s professional, supportive, and sweet. I wish I couldve spent more time with her because she really helped me find a way to make my voice pop.

Great Vocal Coach

I am glad that I chose Arlys as my vocal coach. After the first couple lessons, I feel the difference in my voice. I am able to connect my diaphragm with my singing. I am so excited and looking forward to improve my voice further more. I recommended Arlys to beginning singers - she will guide you right on and make sure your breathing/singing/postures are applied correctly.

Fun & Relaxing

Hi my name is Kurt M, I started taking lessons with Arlys A in October 2013 and I realy look forward to lessons with her. She is very professional and fun at the same time. she has a wide vocabulary and is able to customize each lesson to meet the individuals needs. Since working with her I am more confident in my singing and I am very positive about my future in music.

Arlys is an absolutely fantastic teacher. She really makes you feel okay in your skin, and encourages you to step outside your own boundaries and really find ways to truly improve your vocal performance. I still use exercises she taught me in the lesson pack I bought. She will be with you every step of the way with words of encouragement. You will take something away from working with her.

I had no formal or informal voice training before taking lessons with Arlys. I knew I was at a point where my voice had to improve if I wanted to continue leading in a musical setting. And I knew that if I was going to take voice lessons, I would go with the best instructor possible.

It was clear to me right away that Arlys was the best choice I could have made for an instructor. I noticed a difference in the way I sang the day after the first lesson. By the third lesson, the way I sang was completely transformed. Now I can hardly describe how much my voice has improved from day one.

Arlys is very helpful and encouraging in every lesson, and really knows her stuff when it comes to singing. She also allows her students to play an instrument while singing if they are interested in that, which is helpful to me.

I would recommend Arlys to people who want to dive into voice lessons for the first time like I did. I would also recommend her to anyone looking to take their singing skills to the next level and beyond.

Arlys is extremely fun and easy to work with and has great teaching techniques! She also provides resources to be used outside of individual lessons which are really helpful to reference after the sessions are over. I had a great experience with this teacher and highly recommend her!

I found her personality to be so infectious! And she taught me warmup techniques I have never seen despite being in choir virtually my whole life. I love that she has a dance background and places such an emphasis on knowing your body. I think she's a great human being as well as a gifted teacher, and I highly recommend her!

Very helpful, and the added benefit of the opportunity to learn about how to use Audacity. We found a good vocal exercise for me to use.

I took a group class online with Arlys and learned a lot about how I could improve the range and tone of my voice through various exercises. It was very informative and I look forward to taking more classes with her.
