Milton J.

Corona, CA

I've been teaching singing and vocal performance for about four years. I utilize the Kodaly method for vocal performance, starting at the basic level of tonal scales (major, minor, harmonic, melodic, etc.) and Solfege application to serve as a foundational base; rhythm syllables such as "ta" and "doo". Additionally, foundational breath control is applied, as it is very important for the singer to learn how to control their breath and support their sound. From there, repertoire mimicry is applied, or what I call "phrase building," as it is important for any singer to be able to effectively create vocal phrases.

About Milton

Music is the means to create a portal into our souls, so that we may see each other for who and what we are, not merely as what we do. I want to help foster those young, middle-aged, and not-as-young how to tap into their own soul portals through music so that they may find others' as well. I believe that in order to entertain others with your voice or your instrument playing, one must first be able to entertain oneself - all the while having fun doing it! As a recent graduate of the University of California, Davis with a double major in Music History & Ethnomusicology and African-American &
African Studies; a former co-host of the popular hip-hop radio show ATF Radio: All Things Fresh on KDVS 90.3 FM; a former Music Director of The Afterglow of UC Davis; and a current Vocal Music Performance graduate student at the University of Redlands, I have come in contact and learned from a vast amount of different musicians and professionals. A classically-trained bass-baritone with roots in R&B, Soul, Rock, Pop, and Jazz, I have aspirations to help each and every student realize their full musical potential.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is very friendly, inviting, and audience-driven. In the beginning, I strive to refer to my presence in the lessons as a fly-on-the-wall, so to speak, in order for my students to get out of their own way and sing as if no one's watching. From there, I apply the audience aspect - singing not only for enjoyment, but for entertainment for yourself and for others as well. If one is able to build that frame of mind in their lessons, their actual performances will not be too far from what they've already dealt with before.

I provide teaching and repertoire books, as well as instrumentation for myself (i.e. guitar, misc. tools for specific lessons). I expect my students to provide a piano (or keyboard equivalent), pitch pipe, and instrument if applicable (i.e. guitar), and, of course, themselves!

Wonderful instructor! Milton has a great attitude and is a joy to be around. My son loves learning from him and we are very thankful for finding such a patient, creative and skilled instructor. Student's Review - Milton is an exciting and fun guitar teacher. He has exceeded expectations and made otherwise bland lessons interesting and fun. He is always quippy and easy to be around. Having him as an instructor has made me grow to love the guitar even more.

Milton is a great teacher! He explains everything, teaches you theory and proper techniques. He is down to earth and makes you feel comfortable. He pushes you out of your comfort zone, but in a good way so that you can grow as a singer. I am very glad I chose to take lessons with him!

About Alex

I was trained abroad & has performed to a variety of audiences of different cultures. My experiences helped me understand music as a passion & as a genre. It has inspired me to share those skills & experiences to students, musicians, actors and music enthusiasts to professional artists. Some of my students have joined competitions, talent shows and reality shows; performed on tours as a professional; and entertained in front of family gatherings and in the shower! If you are preparing for a performance, an audition or you just want to learn music and have fun, then I may be able to help you..
.

*** Lesson Details ***
The most important lesson is to enjoy and have fun, whether you are learning to play "Chopsticks" on the piano or belting out a Broadway tune. I am a product oriented person, I use techniques and drills to achieve your goals. In 3 to 6 months you should already be seeing improvements that will make you skilled and eager to learn more until your mom and dad is so happy you can now play the piano or your boyfriend is so in love with you and your sweet voice...

Alex has been a joy for my daughter to work with. He has been working with her a little over a year. She has grown in her music but most of all in the life lessons he has taught her along the way. Alex on a weekly basis connect his music lessons to life lessons for Whitney. It's amazing to listen to her play each week as she develops in her music and a joy to watch her maturity in managing life's challenges. He has been a great source of support for her. We love you Alex!!! Your the best.

Varin I.

Montclair, CA

I've been coaching singers for a little over 5 years and my students have gone on to perform solos at their community events. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to breathe and phrase properly and as time goes on you'll be able to vibrato and mix. I specialize in pop music but I could do almost everything. 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 don't have to take notes. If you don't understand something then, you'll might understand some key concepts later on your vocal journey. I love working with students for all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you.

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.

I have been trying to come up with the perfect words to describe this teacher but I can't find anything I feel is good enough, other than the words wonderful and amazing.The way she teaches, and just her presence alone just blows me away, and I couldn't be more thankful to have met her and have the opportunity of her teaching me. If anyone is meant to be a teacher,it would be this person. She is so gifted.. Believe me when I say, if you have any doubt about choosing the right teacher, look no further because you just found her.

Amy has truly changed my life both as a performer and person.She helped me polish my vocal technique and singing methods, in addition to acting and audition coaching. She was very instrumental in helping me pick amazing audition songs and how to really give a memorable performance, even if it's just 16 bars at an open call! Before studying with Amy, I was a bit unfocused and rusty,now I am poised and confident in my singing abilities. Thank you Amy, you are an incredible and inspiring teacher!
