About Phillip
I am a pianist and singer who started learning to play the piano at age 6, and I love teaching all students of all experience levels. Growing up I competed and placed highly in many competitions including playing with the Symphony Orchestra in my home town of Spartanburg, SC after winning it's concerto competition at the age of 17. In college I took piano from Dr. Charles Fugo at the University of South Carolina and also started taking voice lessons from Tonya Currier and Walter Cuttino. While still in college I worked with The South Carolina Opera company for a season as a member of the ensemble and as Chorus Master.
Professionally, I have worked with different theater and opera companies as a lead actor and as a musician. I have also worked in many different church positions as a musician and singer.
I have many years of teaching ex
perience with piano at all experience levels.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have experience teaching since 1995 while I was still in college. I primarily use Alfred and "Faber & Faber" piano methods for beginners. I teach how to read music, understand the theory behind the music, and the technique needed in a patient atmosphere at the pace of the student. I also teach you how the piano works and the different types of pianos as well as the history of keyboards used for different classical music. The lessons are geared toward the goals of the student no matter what level is desired.
In teaching singing, I will teach you the basics necessary to create a healthy and relaxed sound through technique. With experience singing music ranging from classical to contemporary church music to musical theater, I can teach you how to use the voice in a way that will promote a long time of singing without adding stress to the voice. I will work with any style of music and will give you the technique and confidence needed to become a better singer.

*** Studio Equipment ***
In my home studio is a piano and books with big windows to look out. Pianos are an upright piano and an Alesis Synthesiser. Seating is available for parents as well.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have a piano or an electric keyboard at home for piano lessons. For voice lessons a keyboard is not required but is helpful.

*** Specialties ***
I primarily teach piano in a classical style using either "Faber & Faber" or Alfred Methods for piano lessons.
For voice, I teach all my students to sing in a way that will be the most beneficial to the health of their voice. Doing this is helpful to all styles of singing.

About Michelle
Instilling and nurturing a love of music and developing musicianship are why I’m a voice teacher. I earned my Master of Music Education degree in 2012 from Boston University, which has furthered my love of teaching and given me even more resources to draw from.

With all my students, I emphasize good technique. No matter what genre of music or age of student, singing in a healthful and fun way includes great posture, breath management, and producing a free and easy sound. I believe that each student has their own unique way of learning, so I tailor my lessons to fit. Students are both encouraged to sing music they're familiar with and to try something new. Immediate feedback and specific practice instructions help my students gain a sense of confidence and assess their progress. Last but not least, singing should be fun!

I'm a member
of the National Association of Teachers of Singing, The Voice Workshop, and the Loudoun Fairfax Music Fellowship.

I worked with Michelle for a little over 2 years. As an adult student, I was super nervous about singing in front of anyone - it took me this long to just sign up for lessons! She was patient with me and gave me lots of tools for dealing with my nerves and stage fright. Michelle helped me to choose songs that I not only wanted to sing but that matched my voice and range. I was hesitant about performing in a recital but Michelle pointed out that it was like training for a marathon - doing all the work but not performing just seemed silly. It wasn't perfect but it was definitely something I'm proud to have crossed off my bucket list.

About Rebekah
Each person has differently-shaped resonating chambers and vocal folds that make up their anatomy. The way the sound resonates inside is what gives each person his or her own unique voice. It takes a voice teacher with a specialized training in what to look and listen for to understand what is a healthy exercise and what is not. I will help you or your child achieve their goals– but also it takes daily practice to achieve desired results. It takes at least three months of training to experience measurable improvement. Please be patient and keep it up!

I help people of all ability levels:

-Improve pitch accuracy and the tone of the voice
-Increase the singing range (low to high)
-Use breath support to increase the volume of the voice
-Release muscle tension during speaking or singing
-Even out the "glitches" when singing throug
h the range
-Improve over all performance and audition presentation
-Learn to read music
-Learn to sing in harmony
-Become more confident onstage and everywhere else
-Access a brighter and bolder speaking voice (ideal for teachers, pastors, and speakers)

Benefits of studying with Rebekah at Ninth Tone Voice Studios:

The lessons will take place in the convenience of your home– so no travel necessary! Rates are competitive. I put my students' success as my first priority. The first lesson will be utilized as an introduction and consultation between the student and myself. With the knowledge attained from the first lesson, I can tailor a curriculum to fit the needs of the student. I give my students the opportunity to perform in city, regional, and state competitions, recitals, and events through my associations with NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing) and MTAC (Music Teachers Association of California). These organizations also provide curriculum for the students they can strive to be successful in, and will be an essential stepping–stone to further studies in music, or for their resume in general. Students are able to strive for awards of merit that are recognized on a national level.

My students:

My students have enjoyed solos in choir, lead roles in school musicals and summer programs, solo performance showcases and successfully singing for weddings and other church programs. I have even coached public speakers to achieve a healthier and more vibrant speaking tone. I have proudly helped people become much more accurate with singing on pitch through ear-training methods.

Join My Studio

Again, I am new to the Northern San Diego / Carlsbad area and I am highly motivated to take on new students. I will do my best to challenge, encourage, and push you to achieve a higher level of singing. Please call or email me to set up a time for a lesson.

Rebekah is an outstanding instructor who pushed me out of my perceived limitations with singing. It had been years since my last formal lesson and after talking about goals and pieces we wanted to work on she was able to help cultivate a stronger skill all the while being easy to learn from. I highly suggest anyone looking to learn to sing to give Rebekah a shot! She makes the environment fun, positive and you will sing at levels better than you perceived possible if you are willing to work for it!

Rebekah was an outstanding instructor for our daughter. Our daughter was a bit difficult in the beginning putting 100% effort for the lesson. Rebekah was very keen and navigated her way through the obstacles and motivated her to be prepared and give full effort. Rebekah sets the bar high and gets her students to perform.

Rebekah was a wonderful teacher to me. I have grown children and always had singing lessons on my "bucket list". Although I have no desire to sing professionally, I always wanted to have a better singing voice so I could sing with confidence (and not embarrassment!) while worshiping at church. Rebekah understood my goals and tailored our lessons, her assignments to me and even our song choices to fit my aspirations perfectly. Her patience in moving at the pace I needed showed her maturity despite her younger age and she always provided me with honest and uplifting feedback that raised my belief that I could sing with confidence. Her move Maine is California's loss and the east coast's gain of an effective, kind and lovely instructor and person

After intensively studying with instructors and performers from all over the world, I developed a diverse teaching philosophy that allows me to customize lessons to each student's needs. I am a very positive, supportive, & energetic person who knows how challenging it is to learn an instrument so I try to make it as fun as possible! Whether

About Kathy
Consider me your (All Access Pass) to harnessing your full vocal potential. I started performing professionally when I was 10 years old and with over 40 years of performance experience and 18 years of teaching experience I know how to mine and develop talent.

Now just a bit about myself...though I am classically trained, I am very blessed to have grown up in a musical family who appreciates all types of music. So at home we'd jam out to Jazz and Blues, but it was my classical training that allowed me to excel in my craft. I learned how to carry the skill sets from my classical training into multiple genres of music. In doing so I earned awards on the local, state and regional levels, opening doors for performance opportunities on stages both here, at home, and abroad.

In 1998 I decided to open a voice studio, determined to create
a learning environment that would blend the discipline of sound technique with a fun, relaxed atmosphere, free of negative critique. Here I am 18 years later and still going strong!

I am looking for goal oriented students, who are serious about mastering their instrument and willing to work hard to get there. Are you that person?

If so, I would love to hear from you.

From, my daughter, Hannah’s, first lesson with Kathy I KNEW I had found the right vocal instructor. Hannah climbed into the car after the lesson, face beaming, and the first words out of her mouth were… “Thank you, Mom for finding her.”

Hannah’s always been very active in and out of school in all things related to theatre and music, but she’s not always had the confidence necessary to land the acting roles or singing solos that she wanted. After she started studying with Kathy all of that changed. Armed with new singing and performance techniques she began getting solos and acting roles that in the past would have been out of her reach.

Hannah auditioned for a local telethon. When we arrived I was invited to sit in on her audition, which never happens. I was completely blown away and reduced to tears as she sang a jazz song with a very complicated scatting section. I didn’t feel like I was watching Hannah, I felt like I was watching a professional. She was accepted, and on the day of the telethon she performed the jazz piece from her audition as well as a contemporary broadway piece which reduced me to tears.. Yet another milestone in her journey. To say I was blown away would be an understatement and it was on that day that I realized my daughter, because of Kathy’s investment, could go on to do extraordinary things.

As the weeks passed Hannah focus on her craft began to intensify even more. She literally spent hours in her room practicing and I could tell, from listening, that as she was giving it everything she had, her hard work was already beginning to pay off. The evidence of that came as she auditioned for, and was accepted into, All National Choir, All Eastern Choir, and All State Jazz Choir. An even greater test of how much her abilities had grown came when she auditioned and was accepted into Berklee School of Music. I’m such a proud Mama!

Kathy has been a mentor for Hannah not only with regards to singing and performance, but also has become a friend who’s willing to go the extra mile to see Hannah succeed. She has taught her to believe in herself, to believe that she deserves what she wants and that, with hard work and humility, she will go far. Over the past year I have watched Hannah bloom into a confident, hardworking young lady. I am beyond thankful for Kathy and all that she has done for my daughter. I wish I had found her sooner!

Just had an opportunity to go to my daughter's first recital after signing her up for singing lessons with Kathy, and we were absolutely amazed at how much better she had become after only a couple of months - and everyone in our church has noticed it as well. It seems to me like Kathy finds a very good balance between the rigorous basics of voice training, and just having fun and exploring what the student wants to do. I am very happy we found her.

Suvida gave lessons to my 4 year old son at UT. I was nervous at first because they were his very first lessons in piano, but Suvida had a calm and gentle approach, and my son liked her immediately. She had a lot of patience and had ways of teaching him that we're relatable for his age and level of understanding. I would definitely recommend her lessons!

Suvida teaches my 10-year old, and I initially turned to Suvida because my daughter's previous teacher, whom we had for 3 years, was painfully inadequate. I was chatting with Suvida about things that bothered me as being improper techniques, though I myself had only taken piano lessons for 1 year as a child. Suvida's "horror" by what I detailed, and then her launching into all that my daughter should've been able to achieve after 3 years of lessons, convinced me that we needed her as our teacher!
Her attention to details, which as a child violinist of 11 years myself, is something that I surely appreciate! And I can already see the vast improvement in my daughter, after only one year of lessons with her! Thank you, Suvida!

Suvida has been giving my 7-year old piano lessons. She is excellent with children, and has a positive and kind manner. She makes the lessons interesting to children in different ways, for instance, getting them to use their bodies to understand concepts, like clapping to count out beats. I highly recommend her as a music teacher.
