There are only 12 notes (pitches) in equal temperament tuning that we use in Western music. AND only 7 letters. It's all the same. Wanna learn how to navigate it?

Shubha was an excellent instructor. She is clearly well trained, and breaks everything down for any and all levels. She also makes every lesson fun with her sense of humor! Would definitely recommend to anyone and everyone.
Tessa
Shubha is one of the best vocal coaches I’ve ever had. She’s kind and patient and she knows how to get results. Before taking lessons with her, I was auditioning for shows using songs that weren’t the right fit for my voice. She helped me master my audition and I got the role! I’m going to continue lessons with her and I highly recommend her!
Swati
I have been doing online vocal lessons with Shubha for a short time, and it was an amazing choice!! I love to sing, but I've never been super confident in it. She helps me learn vocal warm ups that have really allowed me to expand my range and feel like I have the confidence to actually perform live. The practice has been invaluable to me and really inspiring. She's given me that nudge to say yes to singing and feel like I can accept more gigs and feel ready to perform.

"Lorin helped me hone my songwriting skills immensely, by not only teaching but collaborating with me when necessary. It was refreshing to find someone who put his teachings into practical learning, where I could see the outcomes become apparent. He’s a nice dude, and is experienced equally across his fields. He guided me to making intelligent choices for equipment purchases, both instruments and pro audio gear. We first met while he was living in New York, and boy has he traveled since. I think living in so many different states, and being that well journeyed has given him good cultural depth to his work. Check out some of his own collabs with singers and musicians from all over the world...that really says it all."
