Anthony S.

Los Angeles, CA

My theater background is rooted in musical theater, since I was trained on piano and loved to sing. I'm well versed in modern styles as well as the classics and adapt my lessons to the individuals goals and passions.

About Anthony

I started playing music at age 9, when my mom decided to put me in piano lessons. Much to her surprise, I fell in love with the instrument and played non-stop, sometimes skipping dinner to read through a new piece or practice for an up coming competition. After winning a few state wide competitions, I enrolled in an arts high school to practice my craft, and be around other creative high school students.

While in High School, I started writing music and singing in a 16 member chamber choir. The summer before my senior year, I won the prestigious Berklee songwriting competition and was awar
ded a scholarship to the school, which I decided to decline to make my way towards the music mecca of Los Angeles.

I received a Bachelor's degree from CalArts where I focused on contemporary piano/voice and composition.

Since graduating in 2010, I've released an EP entitled 'Living in Layers'. I sing and play piano in a number of bands including cover bands and original projects, mostly in the pop/rock/soul veins. Some of my collaborators include Akon and Andy Samberg (for an SNL short), Ben Lee (platinum selling Australian recording artist), Ben Lovett (Mumford and Sons), and the Swingle Singers (Acclaimed British A Capella group).

I have love in my heart for both classical and popular music, and I think my combination of the 2 will make for a very well-rounded lesson experience. I would say that my biggest strength as a musician is that I'm well rounded, and can work with just about anyone in any style. I can help you understand the styles that excite you, but also open your eyes to other new and exciting things. I would say that I specialize in writing, and work very well with students interested in composition and songwriting.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons with me will vary from student to student, but you can definitely expect exercises to better your technique, games for your ear to help you understand whats happening in the music, and a project of your choosing, whether it be a pop song, a Mozart Aria, or a Jazz Standard.

First and foremost, taking music lessons should be fun and inspiring. You can count on me to figure out just what it is that made you pick up the phone and ask for lessons, and then together, we'll create feasible step by step ways to reach your goals. I am a pretty easy-going teacher, but I like to challenge my students and push them to a level that they are comfortable with.

For beginning piano students, I like to use the Faber and Faber Method, which comes with escalating books in Performance, Theory, and Technique and Artistry. It just covers it all! For advanced piano students, I like to asses their strengths and weaknesses and design a curriculum with the student that's both fun and challenging, sometimes working out of specific books, and sometimes not.

For voice students of all skill levels, I like to base my curriculum off of a balance of technique-building exercises and stylistic song of the students choice. A classical singer may have different exercises with vowels, placement, and breath than a pop or rock student. I like to focus on the 'true' voice, find what makes you sound like you, and make you the best and most confident singer you can possibly be.

After 6 months of lessons with me, I will have you saying that you are not only a better musician, but you understand music more and you're more inspired and excited than before. Music is what unites us as people, and I strive to give the tools necessary to all of my students to be able to express themselves in a way that works for them.

*** Studio Equipment ***
LivingRoom: piano and/or keyboard (88-weighted key) couches and chairs, parents can sit on on lesson

*** Travel Equipment ***
If the students don't have a piano or keyboard (88-weighted key) then I can provide a keyboard for the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
Piano: beg - adv
Vocals: beg - adv
Theory: beg-adv

I am capable of teaching classical piano lessons, but I specialize in contemporary and popular piano styles and composition/songwriting.

I love working with vocalists looking to accompany themselves better!

Awesome Anthony

I've been taking singing classes with Anthony for over half a year now, singing musical theatre. He has been very accommodating with my busy schedule. Anthony is awesome, not only in his teaching style, but his genuine interest in teaching. He is also an amazing singer!

I have classes with him once a week, and I look forward to every class. He's very positive and nurturing. I came in with zero experience, and was very shy about my voice. He has helped bring my confidence level up. Though my singing ability is still shaky, I feel myself improving, and I'm now willing to belt out my favorite songs in a car with my friends.

knowledgeable, dynamic, passionate, great musicianship, articulate, carrying, flexible, reliable

Anthony has been teaching our two teenage kids for the past 6 months. They are intermediate level and have both found in Anthony a great balance. He is capable to go from classical, emphasizing on techniques and theory, to Jazz and expose them to the intricacy of chords, to pop and sing with them. He is giving them his full array of knowledge in the most gentle, encouraging yet challenging way. And instills in them the notion of phrasing and composition by guiding them to think musically. He is wonderful with them.

Crystal S.

Los Angeles, CA

Crystal studied Broadway style vocals at The Boston Conservatory of Music and has been performing professionally on the stage for over ten years.

About Crystal

Crystal brings a lifetime’s experience of professional musicianship to each of her lessons. Born into a family of musicians, she sang her first solo at age 2. She also benefits her students with an extraordinarily diverse musical background, having worked as a vocalist in gospel, country, musical theater, jazz, classical, rock, pop and soul styles. Her performing career has taken her from L.A. church meetings to London’s Houses of Parliament.

Crystal hails originally from Los Angeles, CA - where her musical parents gave her a head start by including her in the family business the moment she
was able to contribute. She went on to study classical voice, piano and music theory at The Boston Conservatory of Music. After concluding her studies in London, she returned home and began working regularly as a theater performer, appearing in twenty world premiers and re-imagined classics. Most notably she played the lead role of Keely Smith in the big band jazz musical “Louis and Keely: Live At The Sahara” during its eight-month run at Westwood’s Geffen Playhouse. She also formed her own rock band, The Honeysuckle Jones Revival, with whom she performed her own songs all over Los Angeles. And she began working as a studio session vocalist, providing demo vocals for other songwriters, as well as arranging and performing back-up vocals for original artists, including Laura Roppe (currently in the Top Ten on Billboard’s Uncharted list of emerging artists.) Crystal played the lead role of Brooke in the new operatic rock musical “The Burning Opera LA” during its Los Angeles run in 2011 as well as providing ensemble vocals and playing piano and bass. She also performs holiday tunes from the Golden Age of American songwriting with musical quartet The Sleigh Belles.

Crystal believes that music is serious business but that it should be fun. She encourages her students to play music they love, as well as expanding their musical knowledge. She is a firm believer in basics first and emphasizes theory and technique as the tools to support creativity and provide freedom, power and control. She believes effort beats talent every time and the student who practices consistently will see results, whatever their level of ability. Most of all, she believes we were all born to make music.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lesson structure varies depending on the student's instrument, age, level of experience and musical style. However, all lessons focus on:

Technique
Music theory
Performance style

After 3 or 6 months of consistent lesson attendance and practice, students will have a clear understanding of how their instrument works and how to care for it. They will be able to read basic music notation. They will be working toward clearly defined musical goals and they will have at least three performance pieces learned.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Loft Space: full size electric piano with weighted keys, small digital recorder, microphone, Garage Band, parents can sit in on lessons

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring a small keyboard for vocal students with no piano, karaoke tracks and a digital recorder. I also bring a selection of games. Students are expected to purchase all necessary books and sheet music.

*** Specialties ***
Young beginners (piano)

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!

Sherry S.

Pasadena, CA

About Sherry

I have been a musician throughout my life; I began playing the piano at age 5, and then began studying the violin at age 10. I did my first Symphonic tour as a violinist throughout New Zealand and Australia when I was in high school, and eventually went on to college to earn my degree (BA in Biology) under full scholarship from the University Symphony as the 1st chair of the 2nd Violins.

After college, I studied voice informally at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. Later, I entered the Mae Z. Orvis Vocal Competition at the University of Hawaii and won a scholarship to enter a degree
program in Vocal Performance. I then trained with the Young Artists Program with the Hawaii Opera Theatre. I have been a professional singer since 1998, and have performed at the Wassermusik Festival in Berlin in 2008, the Hawaii Opera Theatre, the Seattle Symphony Benaroya Concert Hall in 2012 and LA's renowned Walt Disney Concert Hall in 2012.

I have acted in musical theatre in productions of "The King and I," "Romance, Romance," "Chicago," and "BatBoy," amongst others. I speak Mandarin Chinese and have wide-ranging cultural understanding, having studied language abroad in China and Taiwan and lived in Hong Kong, Honolulu, New Jersey, Chicago, San Francisco and LA.

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach both children and adults of all skill levels. I specialize in Classical singing/Opera, Broadway style singing, and also Karaoke singing/Microphone technique. I help people who are "tone-deaf" with pitch-matching, and to gain confidence singing in public.

I begin each voice and acting lesson with a warm-up to prepare the student for their lesson. 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!

Ryan P.

Anaheim, CA

I have been teaching voice for 7 years and use classical vocal techniques as the foundation for all singing training. You will then learn how to build the musical theatre style on top of that. The goal is, by focusing on proper breath support, ear training, and the exploration of your own voice, to produce a HEALTHY, rich, vibrant sound that will sustain you through 8 shows a week.

Pulling from over 15 years of performance and training experience, I am here to give you the tools to succeed. Whether it be learning the basics of your craft, fine tuning years of hard work, or just helping prepare for your next big audition, we will work together to develop a curriculum that will guide you to becoming the best artist you can be.
