I am proud holder of the diploma of the Professional School of Music and Vocal Arts, specializing in "Popular and jazz vocal singing and coaching".
For over 15 years I've been providing vocal coaching and singing lessons to many wonderful students age 5 and above, while being a live stage performer myself. Nothing beats the real-life e
xperience!
While teaching technique I will show you how to integrate it into the songs you want to perform, eliminate your breaks, smooth out your transitions, add endurance and strength to the voice, sing on key better, and extend your range. I employ individual approach to every student. We will work on the song styles/genres YOU like. I have extensive collection of professional backing tracks without vocal part for you to sing along, practice and record a studio quality demo of a song you learned.

About Carla
Music is my LIFE!

After more than 25 years of teaching at music camps, music stores, 3 colleges and my home, I completely understand that the lessons are all about YOU, the student: what you want to learn, taught to you in a way that works for your brain and personality.

And if you don't know exactly what you want to learn, that's OK. We can figure that out together as we go along learning the basics.

I help students learn to play songs by artists they like.

I also help students write songs, or put chords to their existing lyrics.

For those who are interested, I teach note-re
ading (not required) and theory (not required) and ear training (not required).

The lessons are always tailored towards your (the student's) goals.

I also teach classical and fingerstyle guitar for the occasional person who specifically wants either of those styles.

My purpose as a teacher: help people have a fun experience, learning in an organized way, adapted to your learning style and goals, while learning to do exactly what you wanted to do when you decided you wanted to play the guitar.

In 1994, I was let go from my job at a music store because I was sick. Which sounds awful, but was the best thing to ever happen to me- it was then I got over my fears and became a full-time musician, teaching and writing and performing. I have never looked back! I may not be a household name, but I am living the dream.

Whether you want to sing to your kids or play for an audience of 50,000, or just play guitar for yourself, you first have to get started.

Wait no longer! The guitar is calling!

Jimmy is the best. After learning to play the guitar on my own, he helped me correct many poor habits, and understand how to get a better sound. He introduced me to music theory, and helped me learn my way around the instrument. He breaks down very complex information and makes it understandable. I learned more from him in a few months than years of searching around the internet.

I highly recommend Sarah. She has excellent skills for any teacher - she's encouraging, knowledgeable and patient. I'm an adult who played piano years ago and always wanted to play the flute but I was frustrated, squeaky, out of breath, and out of tune. With a few weeks of lessons I'm further along than I was trying to teach myself over years.
I had years of serious music study with critical music teachers who made me embarrassed about mistakes and dread my lessons. With Sarah, the learning is fun and I now look forward to every lesson.

LaJuan, is an excellent teacher. She is professional, listens to my needs/goals and provides excellent feedback. At the end of the lesson we review what we've learned and what I should practice at home. She quickly realized my skill level and communicates at that level. I feel that my vocal skills will be improving under her guidance. Thank you LaJuan.
