Annalise S.

Yucaipa, CA

Lessons taught in the operatic style of singing.

About Annalise

I was born and raised in Yucaipa, CA and I have a Bachelor of Music in vocal performance from the University of Redlands. I have been performing for 12 years. Some of my favorite roles include Penny (Hairspray), Tessie Tura (Gypsy), The Baker's Wife (Into the Woods), Joy (Rogers and Hammerstein's Cinderella), Jenny (Company), Joanne (RENT), Jan (Grease), Milly (Seven Brides for Seven Brothers), Abigail Adams (1776), and Despina (Cosi Fan Tutte). I was artistic director for the University of Redlands Musical Theatre Company for two years and sang for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Arts Festival. I
am also an alumni of The American Theatre Wing's SpringboardNYC program.

"There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique.
And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable it is nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.
You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you.
Keep the channel open. No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive."

-Martha Graham to Agnes de Mille

*** Lesson Details ***
As a teacher, I am very positive, patient, and I work hard to understand and cater to a student's taste in music, theatre, art, and information. I focus 50% of my performance lessons on physical and vocal warm-ups and 50% on the student's chosen repertoire. I believe in working towards a goal, so I always push my students to perform. I keep a calendar of auditions that I encourage my students to attend.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Private room with a baby grand piano, full length mirror, other various instruments, and a waiting room with comfy couches. I have two cats and a dog who never go in the music room, but I make no promises for the waiting area.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in dramatic, comedic, and musical theatre, opera, jazz, pop, drawing, writing/grammar, and reading comprehension.

Annalise has a very impressive background in music and education, and it really reflects through her lessons with my daughter. She has instilled a lot of confidence in my daughter, to the point that she tried out for, and made, Advanced Choir at her school. I very highly recommend Annalise!

My daughter has taken lessons with Jon while she is in LA. Jon is super patient and an extremely talented teacher/singer. Jessie was a strictly Broadway type singer, and Jon helped her learn how to sing different styles, especially pop.

Great Teacher

I scheduled something for my daughter with Jon. He is very accomodating because my daughter had a musical theater solo and needed some help to strengthen her vocal range. In one hour, Jon did wonderful and helped to improve the performance drastically.

Michelle G.

North Hollywood, CA

Private lessons will have a focus on vocal technique and how to approach the challenging sections of the repertoire with ease and efficiency of tone-production. We will work on interpretation and phrasing, and will prepare repertoire for either recordings, auditions, or performance. Classes will always be tailored to the student's needs and goals.

About Michelle

Musician/Songwriter/Performer

Poised, energized, and armed with unforgettable performance ability, Michelle G. is a firework in the artistic arena. Her training began at the young age of 3 with the violin, and a few years later received classes for piano and voice. Excelling in all three, Michelle developed a very passionate and dramatic personality that eventually led her to more dramatic genres such as opera and stage acting. Her aptitude to understand human emotions and relationships gives her a wide spectrum to play in as an actress. There is an organic flow to her interpretations both
as an actress and musician that leads the audience to feel her emotional current. Her honest characterizations introduce deeper perspectives on what seems like the ordinary roles and storylines. Amongst the many other leads that she has played, her participation in roles like “Susanna” in The Marriage of Figaro, or “Donna Elvira” in Don Giovanni embody much vibrancy and integrity.
Through the development of her voice as a singer and actress, she has crossed over into other media such as voice over commercial work and vocals for pop/main stream music productions. She has recently participated as a vocalist and violinist in the albums of artists such as international jazz pop artist David Longoria, Latin pop singer Erick Bolivar, Grammy-nominated percussionist Souhail Kaspar, and American Idol’s Seysha. Over the last few years she has unraveled her musical skills as a songwriter/composer/arranger and has even had some small victories acquiring music placements on TV shows (NCIS, short film “Sumtin’ Like Dat”, The Dictator) for herself and some of her colleagues. Her inner brilliance is lighting a unique path before her, and she is bravely embracing each step forward in a promising creative career.

Education
Michelle completed her Associates of Arts for Music/Music Education at the age of 18, and got later graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Miami with a Bachelor's of Arts for Musical Theater and Music Business, as well as from Florida International University with a Master's of Music in Vocal Performance.

*** Lesson Details ***
I tailor my lessons to my student's needs, style, abilities, and goals. Learning is truly a fun and passionate adventure for me, and my enthusiasm has consistently been a contagious quality :) I love to challenge myself & my students to discover how immense their true potential is, and I create a safe and fun environment to explore such facets.

My curriculum is combination of solid tradition (Suzuki method for piano & violin, and Bel Canto technique for singing) interwoven with pop-culture, and modern influences. Within the first 3-6 months, my students will know the basic building blocks of music - which includes scales, arpeggios, triads, intervals, technique, and performance repertoire; and for my singers this will include proper breath technique, tone placement, support, very often increased vocal range (both high and low), and will feel significantly stronger vocally and more confident getting up to sing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Full size Keyboard, mics, pro tools, Violin (electric, acoustic, and Chinese Ehru)

*** Specialties ***
Specialties include:
- Audition technique and prep
- Vocal Technique

Spanish has always been difficult for me, but Michelle has helped me so much! She's the first Spanish teacher I actually look forward to seeing each time we have a lesson because she makes the lessons so much fun! She's very funny and easy to work with. Whenever I need to make a change to a lesson she always does everything she can to make it work. I've finally been able to raise my grade in Spanish after working with her!

At the risk of giving away my best kept secret, Michelle is THE BEST!!!

Not only is she an amazing teacher, she is an incredible talent, and awesome person. Her relaxed and nurturing nature enables you to feel super comfortable and excited to learn. She motivates you to try your best and focuses on your strengths, while building and improving upon your weaknesses.

I've taken singing lessons in the past, and after one class with Michelle, I realized, I hadn't learned anything! If you really want to learn in a positive and motivating environment, take classes with Michelle. Just don't sign up for my time slot...I called dibs and I'm going to be taking classes for a while! Lol. =)

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 an aria 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

Every student is a unique person who deserves a lesson customized to his or her individual needs. Each of my students prospers in an atmosphere of patience and encouragement. While the lessons are fun and enjoyable, the serious student will be supported in the development of skills leading to a rewarding career. And the more casual students will grow in an appreciation of music that will always enrich their lives.

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 Music degre
e at the University of Redlands- which I attended on a music scholarship. I have played leading roles in several operas and musicals in Southern California, including Gianni Schicchi, Die Fledermaus, La Boheme (DTL nominee), The Impresario, The Grand Duke, Patience (DTL award), Cosi fan tutte, Little Women the Musical, Seussical the Musical, and many more. I have also appeared in several concerts, opera scenes, competitions (winning music scholarships and theater awards), and worked as a singer at churches, restaurants, and in pop bands. I continue to perform and study music because performing is a part of who I am and I could never live without it.

With this experience under my belt, I feel a desire to pass on my knowledge to students. I carry a strong passion to help people develop their abilities and make them their own. I truly believe that if someone wants something out of life then they WILL achieve it with dedication, perseverance, confidence, and by having FUN doing it!

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.
