Learn how to sing opera from a professional opera singer!

About Lindsay

Get ready to have fun learning how to sing! Every student has different needs and expectations and I'm very good at figuring out different ways to cater to every student. If you want to sing R&B, I'l help give you a little attitude, if you want to sing opera I'll help develop some elegance and everything in between. No matter what style you want to sing or how old you are I always start my students off with correct technique and proper ways to use your voice. That includes breathing, posture, and voice placement. Doing those properly at any age, level, or style will help you sing at your great
est potential.

When it comes to CHILDREN, I know how to make the lesson fun and exciting to keep their interest but to also help them learn. In the summer of 2013 I was in Shenzhen China as the music teacher/accompanist for a musical theater camp for children. I was also in Rio De Janeiro during 2013 teaching music to children in low income areas. I have experience working with all ages!

Singing should be fun! Of course you want to get better--an you absolutely will--but I strive to engage my students in a way that pushes them to be their best while also helping them enjoy the process along the way. Each lesson will begin with vocal exercises and wrap up with singing songs/arias. I look forward to working with you to help you achieve your goals!

d her Master of Music degrees in Vocal Performance from Indiana University School of Music.

This one is simple: Tiffany is the best voice teacher a singer could hope for.

Tiffany taught me healthy vocal practices and helped me adapt them to any style of singing. Because of her own vocal versatility and flexible teaching methods, she was able to work with me on musical theater, classical and opera, jazz, pop, and American songbook. Together with Tiffany, I prepared for each big musical at university, culminating in the role of Kate Monster in Avenue Q.

Tiffany helped me visualize my vocal mechanics. E.g. In addition to "knowing" I should sing through with a raised palate and lowered larynx in order to cultivate a concentrated tone, I learned to "see" the sound coming out of my head through a hamster tube. In addition to "knowing" I should engage my diaphragm for a grounded, supported sound, I learned to "see" a large rubber band extending from my throat to my belly. These particular visuals worked for me--if one of Tiffany's analogies wasn't doing the trick, we'd work together find one that did.

Most importantly, Tiffany's passion for singing and exuberance in teaching comes through at every moment. Her manner is infectious--no matter what kind of day you're having, once you walk into the room with Tiffany, the bad stuff melts away. She listens to you and empathizes with what's bugging you. Then she helps you channel that energy into your singing. And if your experiencing vocal distress, she'll stick with you through therapy and rehabilitation, giving you the skills to modify safely, and cope with your limitations, and not pushing you past your comfort zone.

Tiffany was everything I could have hoped for in a voice teacher and more: a coach, collaborator, confidant, and friend. I miss taking lessons with her and am jealous that you have the opportunity to enlist her brilliant talent and service!

(cont.) As a student, I learned how to navigate the passaggio much better, and saw a huge improvement in my upper range. My tone quality became much clearer, and I saw my breath control improve. Tiffany also introduced me to a huge variety of repertoire, and was always open to new things. Her style of teaching absolutely does focus on technical problems, but I never felt bored or that the lessons were monotonous as I had with previous teachers. She's an absolutely wonderful teacher.

I studied with Tiffany for several years, beginning with musical theater and eventually transitioning into classical music. She was a wonderful teacher–always supportive and extremely punctual, and our lessons gave me a solid foundation that I was able to build upon as a Vocal Performance major in college.

Varin I.

Chino Hills, CA

I have been coaching singers for over five years and many of my singers have gone on to perform solos at their community events. Within the first lesson, you will be able to breathe and phrase properly. After your second lesson, you will be able to vibrato and mix. The following lessons will address your wants and needs as singer because we all want different sounds. For a reference guide, I typically use The Singing Book by Dayme & Vaughn, Singing for the stars by Seth Riggs, and have the following tools for your lessons: a CD recorder and a Casio electronic keyboard. Each lesson will be recorded onto a CD so you do not have to take notes, you get to practice recommended scales and exercises, and critique your own voice. If you do not understand something then, you will might understand some key concepts later in your vocal journey. I love working with musicians of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you.

About Varin

Instruments: Piano, Vocals, Guitar/Bass, Drums

If you would like to schedule an appointment at a different time, please ask and I will do my best to make that arrangement.

What's inside the singing lesson?

Lessons revolve around three basic aspects which are training, singing, and acting.

In training, definitely be ready for some scale exercises. If you want to work on making your vibrato faster, breathe better, sing more loud or soft, sing short or longer phrases, co
ntrolling your mix, executing your melismas, r&b licks, blue notes, bending notes, singing super high notes and transitioning down to lower notes: balancing head and chest voice, and expanding your range, then vocal training is what you'll need. Most of this activity involves matching sounds to custom scales played on a piano.

In singing, definitely have a song in mind you want to work on. Then we'll discuss which techniques and skills that are essential for that particular genre of music. Other than that, you'll learn singer's diction and will know how to control vowel sounds and consonants more efficiently. Most of this activity involves you singing either a line, a verse, chorus, bridge, or the entire song. It really depends on what level you feel comfortable at. Most of this activity revolves around breathing techniques, phrasing techniques, and you singing the melody correctly on pitch.

In acting, whether you're recording or performing, you'll still need to put an act together. Portrayal of emotions are quite the essential skills to make your sound believable. If singing with feeling is not working out for you, then you might want to consider working on some basic acting skills. Some of the skills covered are voice inflections, rhythm, gestures, body language, and facial expressions. Most of this activity involves you expressing yourself as an artist.

How to be prepared for the lesson?

If you do not have a piano or recording device on hand, I'll provide both devices for you. It's recommended to provide a piano. It doesn't have to be expensive, it just has to be in tuned. If it's digital, you should be fine. It's also recommended to have a recording device. Many clients enjoy recording their lessons on their mp3 players or any other computer devices. Please have a clean and clear space with an electrical outlet for the piano and recording device. Other than that, please wear comfortable clothing as if you are about to play a sport or an activity you enjoy. If you want to dress like a super star that's fine too.

If you're taking lessons online, don't worry about anything because everything will be provided.

Hi I am a professional dancer from Los Angeles. I worked with Varin in North Hollywood. Super nice instructor. He taught me everything I need to know for auditions.

Varin is nice. My mom hired him so I could sing solos at my church. I go to Jurupa Hills High and I run track. On my spare time, I sing and play piano. Singing has always been a passion of mine. Learning with Varin is always fun! He's not mean or strict with my voice. He is good. You should try him.

Hey all, I met through a friend of a friend. He's definitely a lot cheaper here = /

Any ways, I think he's worth every penny hehe

I'm an actress and I was really weak in the singing department until a close friend of mine referred his singing coach.

I am pursuing my dream in New York right now. I don't think I would be able to compete out here without Varin. XOXOXOXOXOO

Bradley F.

Moreno Valley, CA

I have been teaching operatic vocal technique for over 8 years. In the first few lessons I focus on classical vocal technique in order for the student to develop a solid foundation on which to build more genre-specific techniques. I specialize in English, French, Spanish, German and Italian diction. I utilize a wide range of teaching tools including opera scores, art song anthologies, textbooks, sheet music as well as scripts and libretti. I provide my students with a comfortable and welcoming environment in which to they can grow and learn. I love working with students of all ages, backgrounds, experience levels and my goal is the thorough and healthy development of all voice types, thereby creating independent vocalists with the skills to succeed in any genre. I look forward to meeting you and let's raise our voices as we make music!

Over the course of my vocal studies at the University of Redlands I had the privilege of working with two wonderful instructors: Professor Marco Schindelmann and Dr. Tosh. My junior year, however, I had a unique opportunity to take lessons with Brad, a grad student whom I sang next to in Chapel Singers. When my choral instructor Dr. Andrews first told me about the opportunity to study with Brad I was elated!

Working with Brad that year was the best decision I made. Not only did he take a particular interest in helping me grow, I really felt Brad took time to understand my voice and he really made sure to challenge in ways that I would be receptive to. Also, he is just a phenomenal singer himself with a beautiful voice, and I believe this is vital to picking a teacher.

At the time I was studying with Brad I was also reading The Free Voice: A Guide to Natural Singing by Cornelius L. Reid. If you are a vocal student and you have not read this, you are making a big mistake. But the reason I bring it up is because Brad's teaching really alined with what I was reading. Brad is living proof of the techniques I was reading about, and this was extremely beneficial to my personal growth.This book helped me understand not only my own voice, but the reasons Brad is such an amazing, intuitive teacher.

If you have an opportunity to work with Brad, take it!
I know you will not be disappointed!

I have taken classical voice lessons with Bradley for the past year. Bradley is an incredibly talented vocalist, performer, and teacher. I have seen major improvements in my technique, breathing, and range. He has challenged me and made me work diligently to become a better vocalist. He is supportive and engaged and he has helped me set realistic and achievable goals. I always feel positive and encouraged after leaving a session. I highly recommend working with Brad!
