Kipp K.

Long Beach, CA

We work on proper breathing (absolutely crucial), pitch, enunciation, speech-level singing (singing without vocal strain), range and enunciation. I want my students to sing easily, and with reliable pitch.

About Kipp

I fell in love with the guitar when I was ten years old, and it’s been one of the most satisfying, long-lasting and healthiest romantic relationships of my entire life. I am still in love.

When I began to play AND sing, the magic multiplied. Through performing solo and with bands, I discovered that other people also enjoyed the magic that was being channeled through me musically.

Then I found that I could teach. This was a surprise to me. I found that I am the kind of person who can explain concepts and demonstrate technique in a way that makes the new information fun for a student. My s
tudents enjoy learning, and I enjoy the fact that they are enjoying it. It is SO MUCH FUN for me to see a student’s face light up because something suddenly makes sense to them, and they GET IT. I love adding one person after another to the club of people who love to play and/or sing.

If you want your child to have more balance and a way to soothe or express strong emotion in a healthy way – and in a way that pleases them – I would like to help you to give him or her that gift. As a child and a teenager, I spent countless hours in a room with my guitar, and it really helped me to stay on an even keel. It also taught me about discipline: practicing on a daily basis brings satisfying results. I was able to make music that was beautiful to listen to, and as long as I kept practicing, it got better and better. It proved to me that regular focus on something I wanted to be good at would bring results. That’s true of most things in life. I make a point of telling my young students that practicing an instrument is just like doing homework: you get out of it what you put into it. And the results can be joyous.

Perhaps YOU, an adult, are the musician or prospective musician. It’s never too late to fall in love with a musical instrument! It’s a joy, and a meditation, a sedative or an outlet, and it’s all YOURS. There is always a creative element to playing an instrument – when two different people play the same music, it never sounds exactly the same, because a person’s personality always shines through. The creation of music or the re-creation of music is, as I said before, magical. And I would like to give you a guided tour of that wonder-world.

If, by chance, you should find that you want to play with other people, I will prepare you to be able to do that and have a BLAST. There’s a reason that the word for what you do with an instrument and what children do with toys is “PLAY.” Fun is always the objective, and I’ve never had more fun in my life than when I was playing with other great musicians. The collaborative effort multiplies the creative results beyond all understanding. This is not just fun, it is BIG FUN! I love to give people the tools they need to be able to experience that. I’ll teach you how to play and sing easily and comfortably, and give you the foundation you need to play any style of music you desire, well. I've been privileged to have really amazing teachers as I learned and developed, and I've stolen from them all the best techniques for sharing musical knowledge. I’ve made music my life’s work, and I have so much to show you!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am very relaxed in my approach, and use humor to lighten up the situation. Most people are initially tense and self-conscious with a new instructor -- my job is to make a student relaxed and happy so that we can focus on the work at hand. There is a way to be disciplined and focused about learning how to play an instrument and about your practice time, but it should be enjoyable. Stress makes it harder to immerse yourself in the music, and that's what's necessary for satisfying development. I've got lots of helpful hints about how to relax and get the most out of your music time. Musicians NEVER STOP LEARNING, no matter what their level, so with music, it's doubly important to learn to enjoy the moment.

I like for my students to be able to read music, at least on a basic level. The ability to be able to decipher musical notation allows for so much more access to all kinds of music, that I really want my students to be able to learn any music they want to by looking at a piece of paper, or a post on the Internet. I use a beginning classical guitar book for my guitar students, and a generic basics book for bass students. I also like to use music of the student's choice for teaching. If they like the music they're learning, it's much easier to TEACH.

For guitar and bass students, I also teach tablature (or "Tab"), since that's become a popular and easy way of notating music.

I like to find out where a student is in his or her development, and then start their instruction from there. If it's a beginning student, we'll start with parts of the guitar, tuning the guitar, and explanations about rhythm and melody. We'll go on to basic chords, easy bass lines, keeping time, and easy melodies. If a student is more advanced, we might start with a song that the student wants to play, but is having difficulties learning. We may work on music theory so that the basic framework can help them to learn music faster, and remember it more easily. We may focus on playing technique so that the student plays more easily and efficiently. I like to identify the things that will take a student to the next level NOW, and then focus on those things until the student feels confident and comfortable with them.

Voice students get the same kind of personalized lessons, and we focus on creating sound easily and without strain, as well and pitch, timing, and tone quality. I want you to like your voice, and to feel good about singing. I want you to sing easily, and happily. The right technique allows a singer to do that, and also protects the voice from damage over time. We'll explore the ways that you can learn a healthy way of singing that sounds great to you and your listeners.

*** Studio Equipment ***
There are two Roland cube bass and guitar amplifiers available for use. Also, there is a drum room with a kit in it if I want a student to play along with a drum groove to help improve their rhythmic abilities.

Bass Guitar · In studio
Verified Student
Christmas day 2013, my husband built a bass for me. One that was my size with a smaller diameter neck. I looked at him and asked, “what do you want me to do with that?”. He said “ you are going to learn how to play the bass so you can play worship with the family.” It was a very daunting challenge, but I liked the idea of playing music with the family. My husband Craig is a worship leader at church, he plays the guitar and the bass. My son Matthew plays the bass and the guitar. My daughter Megan sings, plays the keyboards and can play some guitar. I would be the newbie joining the group.

My husband taught me how to play the bass. He showed me the proper way of playing the bass strings but I had other ideas. I was comfortable with just playing with 1 finger. We got into disagreements over that but he let me go because he did not want to argue with his wife. Craig was a trooper and was able to teach me enough basics that within 6 months we were playing for the elderly in the Senior Homes once a month. By the spring the following year 2014, he asked the pastor if he could add me to the worship team. I was able to provide simple bass line to the music and I had to admit it was fun. I wanted to progress more but I did not want to strain my relationship with Craig. I always pushed back and I wanted to do things my way and often we did not have a good experience. Craig was always proud of me and was always tickled pink whenever we played together. So that fall 2014, I asked to have a bass teacher, he was relieved and went into the business of finding me a bass teacher, a female bass teacher that I can relate to.

That was when I met Kipp Kahlia. She is a bonafide professional musician, studied and majored in music. I just wanted to get that out of the way, because on top of that, she is a very nice person. My first lesson was at her house. It was 7:30 pm and I was super nervous. I told her that I needed a teacher because I wanted to get better than just doing “thump, thump, thump, thump” when we play worship on Sunday. I wanted to grow without harming my relationship with Craig. We got along famously from the beginning. I liked how she was so easygoing and was understanding of my bad habits. She was understanding but that didn’t mean she would tolerate it. She started me from the beginning. Basics like, hooking up to the amp, tuning the bass, and technique. She assured me that over time the hand just adapts to the new programming that I send to the nervous system and the playing technique will eventually remodel. Yes, remodel, even with a stubborn person like me.

That was November of 2014 and I am writing this April 2015 and I have improved my strumming a lot. Inadvertently, when she is introducing me to something new, the claw or the hook (as I call it) comes out but she is quick to point out the hook and I am back to playing the right way again. She teaches me how to be creative with the rhythms, she’s teaching me the roots and 5th’s of chords, where they are on the neck, and how you can use the different notes of the scale to enhance the song. She addresses that because she knows my goal is to do more than thump, thump, thump, and just hold down whole notes. She is very encouraging and she has a sense of humor. We laugh a lot when I am there for my class, the studio people come in sometimes and tell us there is too much laughing coming from our room.

Sometimes I bring up questions I may encounter in the week and she will take the time to answer it. One time I asked her “What do you think of the lawsuit against Pharrell Williams for copyright infringement on the Marvin Gaye song ‘Got to Give it Up’?’ We would stop and talk about that.

Sometimes, I feel not as prepared coming to class because I might not have the homework as complete as I would like it to be and Kipp tells me that she understands that I am a working woman, with a family and that I have stuff to do. I feel that takes the pressure off. But on the days when I AM confident about my homework, then the fun begins, she start throwing in stuff to keep me on my toes and push me out of my comfort zone. I have to have my deodorant on because something unexpected is always thrown

About Carl

During your first lesson I do a computer analysis of your voice, I find out what your goals are in singing, what your favorite kinds of music are, and I take you in the direction you want to go and show you how to get there in the shortest possible time.

Think you're the only one who feels that terrifying nervousness? Most everyone does, including the biggest stars. The four books I've written on singing are entitled, "SING BETTER FAST", complete vocal technique in brief, "HOW TO CONQUER NERVOUSNESS FOR SINGERS" in which I'll teach you to not only handle, but to direct extreme nervousness
into your singing, making your performance soar. I've also written, "HOW TO GET STANDING OVATIONS FOR SINGERS" to teach you to drive your audience to their feet for a standing ovation, and "ADVANCED SINGING".

I always record my students so that they know how they sound to others. I also make a CD of them singing to background music if they wish, included in the cost of the lessons for no extra charge.

Learn "The Singer's Formant", that "ringing" sound of professionals. Learn how to conquer nervousness, learn about Resonance, Overtones, Vibrato, How to sing high notes, Learn the "singing vowels", and more.

I would rather teach singing than eat chocolate, and if you knew how much I like chocolate, you'd know my passion for teaching singing. I've been studying voice since third grade, and teaching singing for eighteen years.

I've had nine singing teachers myself, so I know just how you feel. I get you comfortable, and I listen closely to what you want to do and where you want to go with your singing voice.

My students learn all the important aspects of singing right away, rather than drawing them out over time.

I teach beginner, intermediate, advanced, and professional students of all ages.

I teach all styles of singing, including pop, blues, gospel, classical voice, rock, jazz, scat singing, belting, country and western, and rap.

I teach singing in English, Italian, Spanish, and German.

As my singing student you'll have access to the four books I've written on singing: SING BETTER FAST: a complete but concise treatise on vocal technique (It includes a Practice CD with a free recording studio program to install into your computer); HOW TO CONQUER NERVOUSNESS FOR SINGERS, HOW TO GET STANDING OVATIONS FOR SINGERS, and SING BETTER FAST 2, ADVANCED SINGING. These four books are the most current and relevant works on these subjects available today.

My Bachelor's and Master's Degrees are from California State University Dominguez Hills.

Put your singing voice in my hands. You'll love what happens.

*** Lesson Details ***
My introductory class includes a computer analysis of your singing voice, then describes the main parts of your vocal instrument, how each works, and how they work together. It teaches you what a song is, and how to sing a song well right away.

During the first lesson I record every student and play it back, both for computer analysis, and also so the student can hear how they sound to others. Remember the first time you heard yourself in a recording and said, "That's not me!" I'll explain that to you, and why it's so important to record yourself and listen to your recordings.

Your lessons are designed toward YOUR goals and desires in singing, and include specific guides for your between lessons practice sessions.

I also teach how to sing karaoke and impress an audience. I've been studying audience psychology for more than 15 years, and MY ENTIRE ORIENTATION IN SINGING IS TO, "DRIVE YOUR AUDIENCE TO THEIR FEET FOR A STANDING OVATION!"

I record CD's with custom labels for students, with their picture, included in the price of the lessons. You can have a CD of yourself singing for you to to play, to give to your family and friends, or perhaps to sell.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons are in my home studio, with recording equipment which we use to record you in lessons and on CD's, high quality studio monitor speakers that let you sound exactly the way you sound to others, high quality recording microphones, computer, control panel, keyboard, and music stands.

*** Travel Equipment ***
When I come to your location for lessons I bring portable equipment to do a computer analysis of the student's voice, and to record and play back my student's progress for analysis and discussion.

*** Specialties ***
I teach singing in English, Italian, Spanish, & German, in all styles, including Pop, Blues, Gospel, Classical, Rock, Jazz, Scat Singing, Belting, Country and Western, and Rap.

When I first met Carl I told him I love to sing but couldn’t carry a tune. Well he changed that fast. My singing improved to a deeper and more vibrant sound after only two lessons. I’ve now completed the 5 lesson package and the results are nothing short of amazing. Not only can I carry a tune but I do so with a powerful operatic style voice that I didn’t even know I could do. But Carl knew. He brings out the best in you.

Carl teaches you techniques that focus on the foundation of voice development. I learned how to increase singing range and to hold notes. Lessons and exercises are very effective. Carl is a professional singing instructor who is committed to his student’s success no matter what level or style of singing. Now I understand why Carl gets such consistently high ratings. Based on my experience it is very well deserved. I highly recommend Carl to help you achieve your singing goals.

I felt very comfortable with Carl. I was nervous about singing and he assured me that even the best of them gets nervous! He was very patient, understanding, and he means what he says, which makes me at ease knowing he is there to help and not there to give artificial compliments. Extremely knowledgable when it comes to singing and you can tell that he thoroughly enjoys teaching as well as singing himself. I look forward to continuing my vocal lessons with him and excited to see what the future holds in my singing career!

Sheila S.

Fullerton, CA

I am a classically trained singer, with experience singing solo, in choirs, and in professional opera companies. Within the first few lessons, you'll learn the fundamentals of vocal technique and as time goes on you'll be performance ready. I specialize in teaching healthy vocal technique, applicable to all styles of singing, from pop to Broadway to opera. Come discover your voice!

About Sheila

I have earned a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from the University of Redlands. As a professional singer, I have performed in numerous concerts and operas. I've sung in both choral and solo settings, as well as fully staged productions. Throughout my education, I have played piano and even participated in Certificate of Merit testing. These experiences have all helped shape me into a well rounded singer.

In lessons, I devote equal amounts of time to technique and repertoire. We will always begin by warming up, and working on some exercises. Then we will implement your new tec
hniques into your repertoire, which I will tailor to your specific needs and wants.

Above all, though, I want to help you realize your dreams as a musician! Looking forward to getting started!

*** Lesson Details ***
Voice: I believe technique comes first and foremost, because it will free you to give everything you've got in performance! We will work on breath support, tone quality and proper placement, and then sing through your repertoire to put these techniques into practice.

Piano: Learning music theory goes hand in hand with playing piano. As you play your pieces, we will also explore the fundamental concepts of music theory (basic rhythm, treble and bass clef, major and minor), giving you a well rounded approach to mastering the piano. These skills will take you a long way in your musical path!

Shannon K.

Cerritos, CA

I hold a master's in vocal performance from Cal State University, Fullerton and a Bachelor's in vocal performance from USC. I've been teaching voice for over 13 years. As a classical singer, I've had professional experience doing lead roles with various performing groups. This has taught me the level of expertise which is required in the real world of singing. In teaching singing, I focus on a breath-based technique where we focus on technical exercises designed to help you breathe more efficiently. We also work a lot on proper vowel formation and strive to eliminate excessive tension in your vocal instrument. Last but not least, we work on interpreting the music (musical phrasing, pronunciation, subtext). My goal is to help you become the best performer you can be. I encourage singers to take part in 2 studio recitals a year as well as various evaluations and competitions, depending on your own personal goals. I am a member of National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) and ...

About Shannon

I hold a master's in voice from CSUF and a double bachelor's in piano and voice from USC. With over 13 years of experience as a private voice and piano instructor I have had the privilege of helping many students achieve their musical goals. As a member of MTAC and NATS, I enter many students in Certificate of Merit, Student Evaluation Program, and other festivals. For pianists, I work on songs, scales, theory, ear training and sometimes improvisation. For singers, we work on a breath-based breathing technique and songs that reinforce good singing habits but that are also engaging for the sing
er. We also work on sight singing and theory.Though my training is mostly in classical music, I do work on other styles with my students.

*** Lesson Details ***
For pianists, I recommend the Premier Alfred piano course, or for older beginners/adults, we use Adult Piano Adventures. I also recommend purchasing a scale/technique book and a theory book.

For singers, please bring a recording device (phone is ok) so that you may later practice the exercises which we learn in the lesson.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a Baldwin grand piano as well as an electronic piano in my studio. For budding pianists, I offer instruction with Piano Marvel software.

Lynda A.

Long Beach, CA

Basic Voice Instruction

Lynda has studied voice with a few teachers over the years and also worked with other seasoned singer-songwriters on finding her voice through collaboration. She often uses warm-up exercises from Anne Peckham's The Contemporary Singer and elements of Speech Level singing technique which has a heavy emphasis on developing a full, smooth range through various repetitive vocal exercises and scales.

Every one has strong and weak ranges to their voice. With practice and attention, everyone can find their strong vocal ranges, as well as start to identify and work on expanding what is possible individually. Students interested in developing their voice should have an idea of what songs they want to learn and bring those to the lesson. Basic vocal technique can also be incorporated into piano lessons.

About Lynda

I've been a music instructor, performer and music producer for over 15 years. I understand the balance between learning the language of music through reading and music theory and how to balance that with creative freedom and expression. I look forward to working with you on achieving your musical goals.

Lessons offered: Piano (Beg - Adv), Flute (Beg - Adv), Basic Guitar, Vocal Coaching, Songwriting, Music Theory, Ear Training, Digital Audio & Music Production
