About Jameson

If you are a seasoned performer, I will guide you in developing agility, musicality, range, dynamics, and phrase shape. If you are a first-time vocal student, I will provide an engaging, supportive environment to find your voice.

My instruction is based on professionalism, experience and range from more than 25 years of singing and 13 years of teaching. I have advanced education in vocal performance and am an AmSAT certified teacher of the Alexander Technique, which allow me to integrate the intellectual and physical aspects of singing. I use my energy, attentiveness and creativity to tailor lessons towards each student's unique needs.

I base my vocal technique on the Italianate tradition of operatic "bel canto," but also incorporate broad experience in musical theater, jazz, and early to contemporary classical music.

* Breath

control
* Healthy vocal production "bel canto"
* Fach transition
* 20th Century music

Roles performed:

Rodolfo, La Boheme
Canio, Pagliacci
Count Almaviva, Barbiere di Siviglia
Goro, Madama Butterfly
Mr Splinters, The Tender Land
Don Basilio, Marriage of Figaro
Juror #3, Resurrection (Machover)
The Cowboy, The Blue Hotel (Hulse)

Credits include:

* Aspen Opera Theater Center

* Boston Lyric Opera

* Rome Opera Festival

* Austin Lyric Opera

* Amato Opera

* Dicapo Opera

* Bronx Opera

I have made demonstration tapes for new works (musical theater and opera) and know how to work a new piece into any voice.

In addition, I have worked with the Alexander Technique for over 15 years and integrate its principles into my lessons. My approach is creative, energetic and disciplined.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every student is different and every lesson will be different depending on the needs of the individual, and the demands of the day. I use the principles of the Alexander Technique to open up the student's mind and body to new experiences.

In general, lessons will start with a simple warm-up. Then scales and arpeggios to develop agility, musicality, range, dynamics, and phrase shape. Finally, the last part of the lesson I incorporate some of the new ideas that were communicated earlier into the student's repertoire.

I have had 2 voice lessons with Jameson, and I really like him and his approach. He has simple techniques that help me sing better: expand my range and vocal quality. I think in a short time I will have significant improvement.

About Carol

I have taught voice for over twenty years. I studied music at University of California, Santa Barbara, where I received my B.A. I currently work as a professional singer for various local opera companies, music theater groups, churches and temples. I am principal soprano for Opera A La Carte and have also soloed with Repertory Opera Company, Redlands Bowl Festival, Laguna Beach Chorale and Celestial Opera Company. I have worked extensively in Los Angeles schools performing musical assemblies for students in elementary and middle grades through Southland Opera, LA Opera and Guild Opera of Southern California. My teaching experience includes private voice lessons and master classes at Idyllwild School for the Arts.

*** Lesson Details ***
I emphasize breathing techniques to free up the voice to expand your range and ease of singing. In

the lesson, we start with simple warm ups and vocalizes and then apply techniques to the songs you want to sing. I realize each student is different and I customize the lesson to the student's particular needs. I specialize in classical and music theater, however the basics of singing apply to all styles of music. In addition to working on breathing and technique for singing, we'll also focus on interpretation of the songs you are working on as well as how to overcome performance nervousness. Most students find that they are able to sing with more freedom, less tension and will have more confidence as they progress.

I also teach beginning piano, using the John W. Schaum series.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in the main room, upright piano

*** Travel Equipment ***
They need to provide a piano or keyboard if I am going to their home.
I have a piano in my home.

*** Specialties ***
I work on using the breath as a fundamental technique for singing. Singing should never hurt. I use a lot of imagery to achieve freedom in singing.

I have worked with Bill as a vocalist for several years, and have always been impressed with his singing voice. Now having studied with him privately, I am even more impressed with his teaching skills—fun, encouraging, and informative, his lessons are not to be missed! Also, very reasonably priced!

I've worked with Bill in multiple capacities since we met. He has an incredible instrument and a fantastic attitude. He is always willing to help you with whatever your particular need may be, and he's a very kind and engaging vocal instructor. He is passionate about what he does, and equally passionate about helping you with what you do!

Bill is an awesome instructor! He's versatile, so I can go to him for arrangements issues, vocal coaching, choir questions and whenever I need to record an accompaniment for a song. AND he's also fun! I highly recommend!

About Emily

Whether the focus of a session is on building a stellar repertoire of audition pieces, working on a difficult role, getting deeper into the language of Shakespeare, or song-as-monologue work for musical theater actors, my approach to private coaching is centered around meeting the needs of the client. My goal is to help you reach yours through the development of technique, confidence, and helpful tools you can use to further cultivate your talent outside of our sessions.

About Carol

Music is the window to the soul. Encouraging the gifts and talents of children of all ages is my passion. I have taught music for over 25 years, working with beginners all the way to professionals. I enjoy guiding a student to explore and find their passion in expressing themselves through song. I am also known as the alternative vocal coach, teaching all styes of music. Being a recording artist myself, and having performed for large and small audiences, I am able to teach and guide individuals and bands in stage performance. Many of my students move into songwriting as well, and they can do this on a one on one basis or in a group setting.

Carol is an amazing creative coach,thoughtful and insightful. I have been a successful artist in the art world for 30 years. I had a roadblock and couldn't seem to move in either direction. Carol gave me life coaching lessons on thinking differently and moving in different directions. She has been,and continues to be a real muse in my life

About Shanee

Hey! Nice to meet you! First off, I would love to thank you for your interest in my professional acting training. I am a fun, vibrant and grounded professional actor desired to help you reach your goals in the performing arts industry. I am a graduate of the well-known American Academy of Dramatic Arts, as well as a writer, songwriter, and overall just an encouraging individual willing to push you beyond your fears and help you dive in pool of creation. I specialize in warm-ups, physical acting, improv, auditions, monologue practice, Meisner Technique, Lee Strasberg's Method, and Stanislavski’s System.

I follow five simple but important steps to my method of engagement in performing.
1. Explore
Explore your space. Rather it be on stage, in front of the camera, or just in your head; you must explore your space to find your comfo

rtable and tight places, as well as your obstacles and free spaces. The advantages of exploring first, is that you get a chance as the actor, to feel the area and build that fourth wall.
2. Ground
Plant your feet and your voice down and get grounded. Your being is an electrical source. Just like in a home, in order to use electricity safely, it must first be grounded. You must ground yourself in order to release the full potential of your power.
3. Listen
Listening is a key element in not just acting, but also in life. Listening doesn't seclude itself to just words. Listening involves, listening to your body, listening for queues, beats, moments and even silence! If you choose not to listen, your response will never be valid.
4. Act and React
Every action has a reaction. Your job as an actor, is to fulfill the role by acting and then reacting. You must learn specific techniques to appropriately apply to your acting and if you are following rule number three, reacting should be a breeze.
5. Trust your muscles
Trust that through repetitive motion and practice, that your muscles will do it's job and place your mind, words, and body exactly where it needs to be.

With these steps, the only thing left to add is discipline and creativity. I encourage my students to be themselves and be fearless in that. Without your difference in the world, there would be no change, there would be no story to be told, there would be no excitement. I challenge you to excite me and allow me into your space. Let's explore and create together!

Adam
"I have had the unique experience of working with Anthony Michael Martinez as both a teacher/coach and fellow teacher. He has coached me in private sessio
ns on multiple Shakespeare monologues and contemporary pieces. He had an incredible ability to explain various acting adjustments and helps to bring the best out of the performances and performers. I always feel confident after working with Anthony, and he makes each session fun and full of energy. Similarly, as a fellow teacher, Anthony can adapt to any situation, student or class size. He is energetic, articulate, and has an incredible sense of humor with students and teachers. He is an ideal fellow teacher."
