About Ariel

Hi! My name is Ariel. Thank you so much for looking at my profile. Here is some information about my educational background, performance career, and how I believe I benefit students. I was heralded as an “impressive young…discovery” by the Los Angeles Times in 2010 when I made my operatic debut with Long Beach Opera as Nancy T’ang in Adam’s Nixon in China. I have performed roles such as Donna Elvira in Mozart’s Don Giovanni, Micaela in Bizet’s Carmen, First Woman in Cherubini’s Medea, Second Lady in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte, and Giovanna in Verdi’s Rigoletto. I have been a soloist with the Blackbird Music Project, and I regularly collaborate with composers in the Southern California area. I was a fourth place winner in the Palm Springs Vocal Competition and am an OperaWorks ...

Bobby A. Los Angeles, CA

Voice lessons and vocal coaching in Atwater Village, Northeast Los Angeles, California!

Hello, I'm Bobby, a lifetime musician and performer. I teach vocal technique, interpretation, and performance coaching from my Atwater Village studio space. I've been a musician - pianist, songwriter, and singer - for nearly 30 years.

Students seek me out to beef up vocal performances with their band. I also teach keyboards/piano and songwriting, so you could say my speciality is young LA acts and singer-songwriters. But I love to teach adults of practically any age, level, or style; I can help with avoiding strain, proper style, diction, interpretation, expression, building confidence, channeling your best vocal tone, proper breath and support, range, and more!

OFFERINGS: Vocal coaching; beginning to intermediate voice lessons; in conjunction: keyboards / piano and songwriting, if desired

STYLES: Pop/rock, indie, singer-songwriter, Broadway, Jazz

About Bobby

I'm a piano teacher, pianist, composer, songwriter, singer, and lifetime music lover in beautiful Los Angeles, California. I began playing piano at age 7 and was forever smitten with learning music! I progressed rapidly and by high school I was winning multiple competitions and talent shows and performed as a featured artist with local youth orchestras in Corpus Christi, Texas. When I was 16, I began teaching piano and music theory to my peers and to kids. Then it was off to Austin where at the University of Texas I studied composition (piano principal under Dr. Betty Mallard) and wrote and arranged for keys (of course) as well as voice, strings, and choral groups I sang in. I'm a fun, laid-back person and my teaching style reflects that. However I thrive on doing things the right ...

I used to think that songwriting and composition was beyond me, that it was a gift only some people had and I wasn't one of the lucky ones. I mean, I had sung in chorus some and had taken piano as a kid, but I couldn't crack the code. When I started piano back up again as a lark with Bobby and then expressed my interest in songwriting, I wasn't expecting much from myself to be honest. After all, who was I kidding? But, Bobby really helped to decrypt the structure of songwriting for me and little by little, I started to really get the hang of it. From just the basic four chord pop tune to adding in some more unexpected choices, I'm totally that singer-songwriter I always embarrassingly envisioned in my head. And, he's been great with the vocals as well, helping me to know what works for my body and providing concrete tips for the kind of singing I want to do. Top-notch guy, definitely check him out.

I took a 35+ year break from piano lessons and was a little nervous to attempt it again. But Bobby made me feel very comfortable right off the bat and has been a great instructor. Very personable and extremely patient (and I'm sure my indelicate pounding has taxed that patience at times). His studio is well set-up and comfortable, and he really knows what he is talking about. Highly recommended!
Jessie M. Pasadena, CA

I begin each voice lesson with a warm-up to prepare the student for their session. Next, we do a series of exercises specially designed to help each individual develop their skill in a way that best fits them. We then work on a piece of their choice for the remainder of the lesson, perfecting their technique and helping them become performance ready. I teach with patience and fun because I feel that this is the key to achieving goals and inspiring a good habit of practice.

If you do not already have a song or sheet music to bring in I can help you choose one during your first lesson. I also require that my students keep a practice journal to record their daily practice sessions. If possible, please bring a recording device of some sort so you can record your lessons. It is a HUGE help to be able to listen back on your lessons and to use them in your daily practice! No experience is necessary, that is what I'm here for!

About Jessie

I fully enjoy teaching music and theater to others and spreading the art of performance, reaching out to all generations. I believe in customizing every lesson to be unique for my students in a way that will serve their individual needs. I teach with patience and encouragement and believe that students prosper and improve much more from a positive experience. My lessons are intended to be fun and influential in a positive light that can lead to a rewarding career, hobby, or just for personal enjoyment! Every since I was a little girl, I have been devoted to the arts. When I began college, I knew that music was my path. As a music major I developed a deeper understanding of music theory, piano, voice, and theater. I received my A.A. in Music at College of the Desert and my Bachelor of ...

My son is 6 years old and he is very happy taking piano lessons with Jesse. She is so nice, friendly and patient. My son started with Jesse about 3 weeks ago and so far so good! I recommend Jesse because she is very encouraging and supportive to my son. I am so glad I switched piano teachers because Jesse has all the qualities I was looking for in a piano instructor. My son is learning more each week and he is having fun taking lessons with Jesse!

Alex has been a huge help to me in both learning to sing and being a better person. He really takes the time to get to know and understand each student's unique goals and needs and then makes a space for creativity and art to grow.
He is also a true expert in music and his years of experience and schooling really shines through. He can pick up any song or musical style immediately and work with you on the type of music you find interesting.
I came in as a beginner and now have an ability to sing and use my voice that I really didn't expect. Highly recommended for students of music of all levels.

Amazing singng instructor

Crystal has increased my daughter’s self-esteem and expressiveness through song. My daughter is now writing her own poetry and song lyrics, as well as being able to combat her once shyness quality. She loves to perform in front of others now and has a confidence level that amazes me, especially now that she is going into those “teen” years. I think a lot of thanks needs to go to Crystal, for assisting my daughter in reaching her current creative level!

Great piano instructor

Crystal is an amazing piano instructor. She is patient, understanding and dedicated. My daughter has learned so much from her. My daughter’s love for music has increased immensely since learning how to play the piano. This would never have been able to be accomplished without Crystal’s professional and caring teaching style.

Wonderful person and excellent instruction

I have been taking lessons from Crystal for a few months now. I took lessons from others before I moved to the area, and I have had multiple new breakthroughs with Crystal. She is great at finding the language that allows me to understand adjustments, and is very patient and understanding. I was at ease from the first moment I met her. I highly recommend her to other adults looking to get into singing of any kind!
