It has been a honor to have such an inspirational singing teacher at our studio. Re
It was a pleasure to have an organized teacher, implementing a system for all of her students performances. She developed a rapport with our piano teachers, who accompanied for her students at each monthly recital event. By her planning ahead and creating the performance binder & routine, she had the most students, consistently prepared and participating to perform. Her students were taught the importance of their weekly lessons, practice, poise, confidence and projection when singing. She introduced new skills, from warming up to taking a bow. Rebekah has given our students a solid foundation in their singing careers. She took time with each student to keep their music selections fresh and new. She also helped our studio keep on top of the current trendy music, which ALL of the students enjoyed!
Rebekah has been part of our musical teaching family for 2 years. It's a joy to see how she is using her gifts in music and sharing her passion for singing!
Our studio has been blessed with heavenly voices at several of our Students Sharing's and Parent Programs. We wish her all the best in her new adventures!

I have had the pleasure of working with Rebekah Leonard for two years. I have had several instructors since I started voice training, but none of them helped me grow vocally as much as she has. With Rebekah, I have studied everything from musical theater to classical pieces. She allowed me to pick my own songs while also suggesting other pieces that would challenge my voice and allow it to improve over time. Rebekah is easy to work with. She provides helpful advice and really encourages you when you do something right or when you take a step forward. I consider Rebekah to be a friend. I look up to her because she is so talented, not just as a performer, but also as a teacher. Anyone who has the opportunity to study with Rebekah should seize it immediately; it benefited me greatly.
Rebekah Leonard is an amazing voice teacher. She may be young but I was amazed by her level of knowledge about voice. She gave my daughter tips to protect her voice long term from potential injury. She helped my son with his musical performances by giving us tips on how to sing in a musical while being sick. Her tips are practical and really worked! She gave tips for auditions and how to look your best. She is very professional and organized a beautiful parent performance with her students.
You have played such an important role in our lives. Bringing our daughter to you for voice lessons was such an amazing decision. We watched her blossom and learn so much from you. Her confidence roared and she was able to take on new challenges and exceed. We couldn't thank you enough. We will miss you!
—Mike and Catalina Rankin
Hi Mrs. Rebekah!!
I've always loved singing, and I've always loved music. But there are certain ways I learn things, and you completely understand them. You understand what I want to achieve, and you understand how I want to go about accomplishing my goals. You understand my voice and my thoughts and you apply them to how you teach me. I have become so much more confident in my singing and my music because of you, and I've learned so much in the time we've had together. You got to know me on a personal level, and without that I never would've been able to have grown the way I have. You never pushed me to do anything that I didn't want to do, but you encouraged me to do what would make me stronger and more confident. I loved how you never made me do anything, but you instead inspired me to work harder and handed me the tools that I needed to be a better singer. You have changed my life so much, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Because I knew you as a friend as well as a teacher, you truly were one of the best teachers I have ever had. Thank you for everything that you have done for me, because I have not only been changed for the better, but I have also been changed for good.
And they're not alone!

lessons and counting!

Growing up in the northwest with its vibrant music scene allowed Kareem the opportunity to study with, listen to and perform with world class jazz artists residing in the area. Artists such as Tracy Knoop, Jay Thomas, Don Lanphere, Bill Ramsay, Hadley Caliman, Julian Priester and many others had a large impact on Kareem early in his musical education. This direction and guidance continues to inspire and lead Kareem as he continues his lifelong passion undertaking a career as a professional musician.
Today, as a performing artist he spends most of his time leading his group for which he composes and arranges most of the music. The band is constantly on the move as a sought af
As an educator Kareem divides his time teaching jazz improvisation as an artist in residence at The Tacoma School of the Arts, directing the award winning student jazz ensemble at Pierce College, conducting masterclasses and workshops at schools around the Puget Sound area, and maintaining a full load of private students.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are relaxed and are focused on what you would like to learn.
I usually begin with assessing where students are in their abilities and then come up with a lesson plan based on what they already know and what they would like to accomplish.
They can be geared towards a 5 year old with no musical training whatsoever, or to an advanced musician who wants to further develop their skills.
Topics that I cover in lessons throughout a typical day of teaching include: Instrument technique, sight reading skills ( note and rhythm recognition ), memorization skills, music theory, ear training, improvising, and composing.
After 3 to 6 months of lessons and regular practice a beginning student should have a good command of their instrument and a strong foundation of sight reading. At this point we normally will also have started some music theory as well. For students wanting to focus on jazz we will have already begun improvising as well.
*** Studio Equipment ***
5x10 room w/ piano and seating for parents
*** Specialties ***
I focus on the basics of learning to read music and basic technique on the instruments that I teach. From there I proceed with theory, ear training, improvising, composition etc. It all depends on what the students want to learn. I am comfortable teaching classical music as well as jazz, rock, composition, and improvisation.

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 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.

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.

I believe students, no matter the age, background, or means, can achieve great music making and enjoy a fun and satisfactory journey doing so. I am experienced in using Suzuki, Indiana String Pedagogy, some Kodaly, and my own method, to foster this learning. I have been teaching children ages 5-18, and adult students, for almost ten years now. Working at Fairview Elementary gave me a great introduction to group teaching in a classroom, which I hope to soon be able to build upon. I also have experience tutoring college students at the Oberlin Conservatory in music theory, ear training, and German. Teaching truly is a life-long passion of mine.
