As a performer I have worked as a professional singer, actor, musician, and dancer. I have always had a passion for teaching, directing, and composing. While my love for performing has lessened over the years, I have found my true calling: teaching, directing, and helping others to find their passion for music and the performing arts.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with a special emphasis in music, theatre, dance, and psychology. I am
a graduate candidate working on completing my thesis as my final requirement for a Masters of Arts degree in Music at San Diego State University.

Carol F.

Oceanside, CA

About Carol

I've sung most of my life. I've been teaching since 1991. I listen to a lot of different singers but my real passion is jazz, Brazilian music and blues. I've performed in the US as well as England and Scotland. I also have recorded 2 Cd's.

I teach many different styles of music and work with beginners to advanced. Both of my teaching studios are equipped with a P.A. system so that students can also work on their performance skills.

What's the first lesson like? When I first meet a new student I ask about what experience they've had singing. Even beginners sing in the shower or along
with their favorite CD's.

Finding out what kind of music the student listens to and wants to sing is also a big part of the first lesson. I find that it is more motivating and fun to work on songs that the students enjoy.

It's good for me to know if they feel strain, tension or raspiness. I explain a little about how the vocal cords work, visualizing or picturing the action of the vocal cords and the muscles that work with them.

I encourage students to find their own images that they can relate to. We work on breathing, increasing range and power through vocal exercises. I record exercises at the lesson and give the student their own practice CD to work on during the week.

Working on songs is equally important. Knowing how to get the sound that is uniquely your own and expressing yourself without strain or damage to the vocal cords.

Do any of the following things interest you? Increased range and power, ear training, song writing, breath management, music theory, or improved performance skills? Try a lesson. It's rewarding and fun!

*** Lesson Details ***
I have a warm down to earth approach to voice lessons. I'm laid back and very patient. This doesn't mean that I'm not demanding of my students. I'll help you find the best way to find practice time and enjoy the journey. In a few weeks you'll notice an easier time hitting those higher notes. In a few months you'll be singing songs with more freedom. You'll learn breathing, tone quality, how to increase range and power. We'll also work on performance and making a song all your own.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Both studios have a full PA system for singing on mic. Recording lessons or songs is also possible.

*** Specialties ***
music theory, voice, singing, speaking, beginning piano, performance skills
I specialize in jazz though I don't have much call for that. I'm good with most styles except Rap & Opera.
I am a believer in Speech Level singing. I combine methods of Caesari and the methods that both Musician Institute & Los Angeles Music Academy use.

Before that, I received my bachelor’s in Theatre Arts from Concordia University Irvine. I have performed throughout Southern California and in New York City in musicals, plays, and improv shows. I discovered my love for teaching when assistant directing youth theatre my freshman year or college. Since then, I have worked with students in classrooms, productions, and private settings to help them develop as artists. I am excited to work with all levels o

David E.

Oceanside, CA

About David

A fun, friendly, and professional Music Instructor at your service for Guitar, Piano, Voice, Bass, & Drums! I have a BA degree from Florida Atlantic University in Music Performance for Classical/Flamenco/Jazz/Blues guitar and I've also performed on the Piano/Keyboards for a couple different bands too. Presently, going back to School to earn a Master's in Music. Love to play & teach pretty much all styles of music! It is always a pure joy & truly rewarding to see my music students grow and flourish as musicians. I have been enjoying doing this now for 16 years- all ages & levels. I am also in a
multi-dimensional rock project and am a recording artist-

I believe it's important to learn the rudiments of music to build a good foundation (scales, chord vocabulary, theory, song-composition, performing techniques), but I also base the lessons on whatever the interests and strengths are for the student. For example, if you enjoy jazz more than classical we'll focus more on what you are particularly passionate about. I have also been a part of School of Rock Programs in which we provided performances for the students a la Jack Black. Please contact Takelessons to let the musical journey begin...

Sara D.

San Diego, CA

About Sara

Hi! My name is Miss Sara. I have over 20 years of dance training and 9 years of dance instruction experience. I specialize in youth and adult dance instruction in the styles of: tap, jazz, ballet, contemporary and musical theater for beginner to advanced levels. I also have a background in gymnastics, cheerleading and danceline/pom.

As a dance student, I studied: ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, hip-hop, musical theater, bellydancing and gymnastics. Hailing from Minnesota, I was a member of my high school dance team and captain of my high school cheerleading squad. As a teenager, I was inv
olved in the Teacher Assistant program at my dance studio, which is where I found my passion for teaching. As an instructor, I have taught students ages Preschool to Adult in various styles. I have taught for both dance studios and community programs and I have also instructed both recreational and competitive dance classes.

If you are not wanting to commit to a class, pay studio prices or are not sure if a classroom setting is the best for you or your child, please contact me for private dance lessons offered at your home or Online with the TakeLessons platform. If you are looking for one-on-one instruction outside of your regular dance class, I can provide additional tips and pointers to help you improve your technique.

I have also choreographed for community musicals and weddings. Please contact me if you are tying the knot and want choreography for a first dance or if your school, church or community organization needs musical choreography.

YES I offer WEDDING DANCE CHOREOGRAPHY for couples tying the knot. No dance experience required! All lessons currently offered in San Diego area only (except those taught online).

I provide music for our lessons (if applicable). I am also able to cut/edit music for an additional fee per song if student is wanting to use it for an audition/performance. For lessons that are just for fun, I will supply the student with music (MP3 or CD) of the routine I teach so you can practice and perform it on your own. All choreography is original and age-appropriate. Dance shoes (ballet, tap, jazz) are encouraged, but not required. Let me know if you have questions about where or how to buy them!

In case you are wondering, the TakeLessons online classroom is super easy to use! It is similar to Skype or FaceTime, but allows for me to share documents with you and chat, which means I can write out the steps as I'm teaching them to you so you can learn terminology. TakeLessons even saves our chat history, so you can recall it later when you practice on your own. Let me know if you have questions about the online classroom experience!

"It is a beautiful thing when a career and a passion come together". I believe this whole-heartedly about myself as a dance instructor. I enjoy sharing my love for dance with others!

4 Fundamental Tap Dance Steps for Beginners
Good dancers can make even the most complicated, strenuous techniques look effortless and fluid. If you've ever watched an experienced dancer perform a tap routine, you probably watched in disbelief as their feet turned into a blur of movement that seemed to move independently from the rest of their body. Sometimes the sound effects are even more impressive; when done well, tap dance is a musical art form that creates its own rhythm. Do you want to train your own feet to create this unique mixt
