About Fawn
"Make one stop at the music shop!"
Fawn is not your typical music coach. As a recent Billboard hit recording artist & coaching 21 years, Fawn immediately gets to your goals & together you reach them. What you learn becomes part of you & that's the key to success. Whether you're beginner, advanced, special needs, have a short term issue, long term issue or even damaged vocal chords, whatever your situation, Fawn can handle it all successfully :) Not just in voice, but also in any difficult musical area including songwriting, performance, recording, piano & more.

In Los Angeles, Fawn is the music and entertainment industry's coach known as the one who "gets the job done." Clients have included Grammy and Oscar winners as well as vocalists and actors from The Voice, American Idol, Disney, America's Got Talent, Nickelodeon, X-Factor an
d many others. She has been producing music and vocals in the recording studio, coaching voice, piano, songwriting, rap writing, performance, studio, jazz, blues, classical, pop and artist development for the past 20 years. She was operatically trained by Juilliard instructor Sylvia Bagley, trained as a jazz singer at world re-known Berklee College of Music, where she won several songwriting awards, and was R & B/Pop trained by Vocal Coach To The Stars, Seth Riggs. In 2010 she had a #6 Billboard hit dance song, which she wrote and sang and 2 top 10 hits in 2016. She has written, recorded and performed songs in several different languages for a variety of films, television shows, and commercials such as Nickelodeon's Hollywood Heights, The Natalee Holloway Story, Spike Lee Productions, Barbie, Ponds, Target, Ford, Mazda, Pontiac, The Guiding Light, The Young and The Restless. MTV and several others. Fawn has also sung, written and played in many different styles from Jazz/Blues to Classical to Pop to children's to Opera.

Fawn is a very fun, yet honest and straight-forward coach. She loves working with adults and children, and considers lessons a 'team effort to reach her students' goals. Being that music and the entertainment business are her career and life, she is current and relevant, yet has plenty of old school training to be well rounded and help students build a strong foundation. Music and the entertainment business are her life, and she loves helping people reach their goals and meet their dreams. She has released 5 albums, several singles, won numerous awards and worked with such talents as Grammy winners Lalah Hathaway and Paula Cole, Meredith Brooks, Vampire Diaries Kat Grahm, BT, Jeff Goldblum, Right Said Fred, Ed Townsend, QD3, Club Nuveau's Val Watson, Robbie Benson and shared the stage with Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, Carol Channing, Kevin Sorbo, Pink, Joss Stone, David Guetta, Katy Perry, Moby, Dionne Warwick, James Torme', David Foster, Thelma Houston, David Pomeranz, War and countless others.

Over the years, Fawn has been known to bring students into her inner circle, so they can gain more experience and exposure, taking them to red carpets, events and even putting them up onstage to perform. She remembers having piano, voice and songwriting coaches, and being frustrated in voice because instructors were not addressing issues that needed to be addressed. This is why she creates a positive and comfortable, safe environment so students can open up and progress quickly. Fawn moves straight to the heart of the matter and gets whatever needs work figured out, so students can move on to what their goals and dreams are. She has helped actors be able to sing parts for their TV shows, helped popular bands be able to have good stage performances and presence with precision dancing and singing and has helped vocalists find their true voice. She is able to get piano students as young as 5 to a high-level Concerto level of playing with in 3 years, completely reading the pieces on their own. The youngest person she has ever taught was 3 years old and blind. The oldest person she has ever taught so far taught was 89 years old, after suffering a stroke. She was able to help her get her voice back within 20 minutes of her first lesson. Fawn also does vocal rehabilitation, vocal therapy, and music therapy. She has worked with special needs children with Downs Syndrome, ADHD, ADD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Pit Hopkins Disease and more. As far as being a songwriter, Fawn generally writes words and music at the same time but she has also written lyrics and music separately, as well as composed instrumental pieces.

Music Lessons & Tutoring

Welcome to my studio, where I will instruct you in your musical and academic endeavors. What sets me apart is that I offer diverse instruction in two different areas. In my music studio, I give lessons in piano, violin, guitar, and composition. In my tutoring center, I specialize in Latin (learning from scratch and tutoring). I instruct students of all ages at different skill levels.

My in-studio lessons are given on a grand piano.

Education

BM Music Composition -- Ohio State University, Autumn 2012
BA Classics (Greek and Latin) -- Ohio State University, Autumn 2012
Classics Fellowship -- Indiana University, 2013-2014
Piano Training: Collegiate lessons from Steven Glaser and private lessons from George Haddad

Accomplishments

As a high school senior, under the tutelage of OSU Profess
or Emeritus and world-renowned pianist George Haddad, I performed the first movement of Shostakovich's Second Piano Concerto with the chamber orchestra.

I performed different self-composed pieces at seven OSU Composers' Workshops and won the Audience Favorite Award at the Johnstone Woodwinds Composition Competition in 2012. My Senior Composition Recital was performed on October 25, 2012. It showcased several of my three-movement works: string quartet, clarinet solo, set of classical songs for piano and voice, set of pop songs for piano and voice. Interspersed with these were two solo piano pieces and a duet for piano and violin.

My background makes me a knowledgeable and effective tutor. I was valedictorian at Delaware Hayes High School in 2009 and received OSU's Maximus Scholarship based on my ACT and SAT scores.

She was a really good teacher. However, she always late to show up (about 10 mins late). Then, she stopped showing up for classes. My daughter was waiting for about 15 mins each time because she is usually late so we don't know if she would show up or not but it turned out that she would just quit without telling us and without responding to the emails or phone calls. The classes were already paid in advance and we are trying to get a refund for many classes that she did not show up.

About Dunia
Hi there! My name is Dunia and I was born in Guatemala but I was raised in New York where I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish Literature. Since then I been teaching both Spanish and English in different regions of the world, including the United States and Argentina. My current home is Buenos Aires.

Part of my experience includes working for International Schools like the South China Normal University FLS where I created the Spanish curriculum for the Middle School and High School programs. I have also taught Business Professionals and adolescents online.

I understand firsthand the struggles of learning a new language. One of my main hobbies is learning Mandarin as my third language. What has helped me the most is to immediately use what I learn by speaking with my good Chinese friends . That is why in class I constantly
create a friendly environment where you can practice conversation.

Have you had the opportunity of making some real improvement in the language that you are learning? Those inspiring moments with my students keep me enthusiastic about teaching. It will be my privilege to help you understand a completely new group of people through Spanish.

About Leah
Leah, a teacher, singer/songwriter, musician, entertainer and Berklee College of Music graduate.

She loves teaching and loves her students. Her main joy in teaching is watching her students grasp a new understanding and appreciation for their desired art and growing in their skills and talent. She loves seeing her students overcome obstacles. In her lessons, Leah sets the tone for care and a safe space to truly grow fearlessly. It is important to grow in confidence in your craft. In lessons, she covers setting a foundation, different genres, confidence, warm-up exercises, vocal techniques, ear training, music theory, harmony, performance techniques, audition preparation, range, improvisation, agility, freedom and more. She focusses on a few things at a time and has her students grow into other areas to work.

Musically, she provides
sounds and smooth tones of Jazz and Soul. Her latest EP entitled SonKissed is Jazz influenced music with Neo-Soul vibes and a positive message about love and life. She has been singing around Boston and New York and writing and recording new music. She has great things in store for her in the near future and much music and passion to share with the world.

Originating from Henderson, North Carolina, she grew up singing in school, church and choirs including the Raleigh Girls Choir of Raleigh, NC. Taking singing and piano lessons grew her love for music. She always had a fondness of jazz music starting at a young age, as her father would play jazz music. Studying music has led her to perform in recitals, concerts and festivals such as the Mozart Music Festival with The Capital City Girl’s Choir in Vienna, Austria, to study and perform abroad in Valencia, Spain, to graduate from Berklee College of Music and to continue writing, performing and growing as an artist. Leah also enjoys being involved in and performing in community events as she gives back. It is very important to her to help others as many have helped her.

She gets much of her inspiration from influences such as Jesus Christ, her parents, Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, Dianne Reeves, Lisa Fischer, Sammy Davis Jr., Sade, Anita O’day, India Arie, Erykah Badu, Adele, Diana Ross, Alicia Keys, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Mary Mary, Robin Thicke, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Esperanza Spalding, Miles Davis, Al Jarreau, Nancy Wilson, Ledisi, Sounds of Blackness, Take 6, Gretchen Parlato, and Quincy Jones just to name a few.

About Victoria
Teaching was never difficult for me, I always liked it, but then I created Spanish in words and teaching became my passion.

I can teach you the grammatical rules, and pronunciation, but at the end of the day you are the one who, through perseverance, achieves the goal of speaking Spanish.

Create spanish in words, not only to teach Spanish, but also because I want to share my knowledge of the language and culture that Latin America has. I know that not all of us learn in the same way, that's why I focus on creating a personalized plan just for you, so that you learn step by step and without fear of being wrong. In addition, I take into account your favorite conversation topics and help you learn faster.

From time to time, I organize meetings between my students (same level) so that they can speak in Spanish and share their experi
ences. I take time very seriously, and I know that your time is important, so from any place, and at any time, I am available to you. Can not you take the lesson on Monday? No problem, we reschedule for Tuesday (or when you can).

Contact me! It's more than learning Spanish, it's knowing a new culture and enjoying it every step of the way.

About Andi
Hello! My name is Andi. I teach beginner piano lessons and all levels of English. I have been playing piano for 12 years, and I also have 5 years of teaching experience. I also have 4 years of experience teaching English. I welcome all who are interested in improving their English skills or creating a foundation in music.

For piano: Although most of my students have been children, I welcome adult students as well. People seem to think that to be a good musician, you have to start when you're young, and that once you reach a certain age it's too late. However, I believe the door is open for people of all ages. So if you think you're too old to start learning an instrument, I ask you to please consider taking a lesson with me, and maybe you will find a new passion, or at the very least, a wonderful hobby.

For English: I have incredible
respect for you. As someone who has been studying Japanese for years, I understand how hard it is to learn a new language. It is especially hard when you have nobody to practice with. It doesn't matter if you are a complete beginner, or if you are fluent and hoping to sound more like a native speaker, I want to help you on your journey. I can speak Indonesian, Malay, and some Japanese, so if you speak one of these languages, it may be easier for us to communicate. Even if you don't, please consider taking a lesson with me. Again, I welcome all.

Anastasia has been great helping me learn Russian. While my grandparents are from Russia (USSR actually!) I never managed to learn Russian from them at home. I always wanted to read Russian literature in the original, but did not have enough Russian to do so. With Anastasia's help I am now discovering Pushkin and Tolstoy in the original! After only a few months working with Anastasia I am comfortable enough to read in Russian, watch Russian movies with subtitles, and sing along some very strange Russian pop music :)

I highly recommend Anastasia if you want to learn Russian and start communicating fast.

About Duvan
I’ve been to Germany in the past on a school trip and was really immersed in the culture. I plan to go again soon for a semester after I transfer to a UC so that I can keep speaking German. Music is also something really important to me, so I have a ton of Spotify playlists of Deutschrap. German is my passion, so I’m majoring in that to see how far I can go with this language. I also speak Vietnamese, but it’s not as good as my German. In he future, I plan to learn Spanish, Japanese, Italian, French, and Xhosa, so I’ll hopefully be a polyglot. It’ll be cool knowing a bunch of different languages.
