About Briana N.

Briana teaches voice to all ages and all levels. She incorporates breathing exercises, vocal warm-ups, and ear training, into all lessons, as well as performance practice of a song from any genre of the student's choosing. Once the student masters the song, he or she also has the unique opportunity to record the song in Briana's home studio. Her philosophy is that lessons should be fun and productive and, therefore, all of her students have a great time, as well as learn a lot. :-)

Briana also holds a masters degree in English literature and has been teaching English for over 15 years. She is qualified to teach the following: English as a second language, creative writing, English literature, advanced essay writing, composition, and a wide array of others. She teaches at the elementary, middle, high school, and college levels.

Briana has studied various vocal genres under a wide variety of coaches: classical, chamber, and pop voice; musical theatre voice and jazz, soul, R&B, and gospel technique at McGill University in Montreal. Briana also spent 10 years studying the classical Suzuki method of piano under Phyllis Kranz (Dover, NH), which helped to develop her ear.

Briana is a versatile vocalist and songwriter whose voice can be heard in many top film, TV, and commercial spots, including the 2018 Walgreens summer campaign, the VISA 2018 Olympics spots, 2017 McDonald's, and many more projects for leading global brands like Adidas, Coca-Cola, Smirnoff, American Express, Maybelline, Living Social, and Fanta.

In addition to her extensive film and commercial work, Briana has also performed her original music to packed shows on the stages of the Sunset Strip, including House of Blues, Key Club, and the Whiskey a Go Go. She's had the privilege of singing national anthems at Dodger Stadium, The Molson Centre, The Whittemore Center, and at various Gubernatorial Galas and Inaugurations.

Fun, Encouraging and Helpful!

Brianna was fantastic with my fourteen year old! She helped build up confidence, was very encouraging and made lessons fun. She uses a variety of techniques to teach singing skills including speech-level singing by Seth Riggs. I highly recommend her for beginners as well as for people looking to record a demo.

Supportive, fun, and SO knowledgeable

I started taking singing lessons because I wanted to pick up another hobby, and Briana has helped me do just that. She is incredibly knowledgeable, helpful, and supportive regardless of what your goals are. She makes the technical side of signing fun and enjoyable, something other teachers I have worked with have been unsuccessful at. Briana provides a positive and warm space to let loose in, and most importantly has reminded me that I don't always have to take myself so seriously. I highly recommend Briana to anyone who is looking for a teacher they can create a connection with, regardless of skill level because she can handle it all!

Talented, understanding and fun!

I just wanted to take singing lessons for fun and to build up my confidence singing around others. Briana has taken my needs into account and has done a great job putting together lessons that fit my needs. She offers a very relaxed, soothing atmosphere that gives me the comfort that I need to be able to work on my goals. She is very talented as well, which helps me feel confident in her abilities to teach me what I'm looking to learn. Overall, she is a great singing coach and I would recommend her to anyone! :o)

Grateful is an understatement!

Briana has changed my life!! She is not only teaching me how to vocalize but she has taught me to embrace myself through this experience. For so long I allowed my passion to sing to be dormant; feeling inadequate in comparison to others. My goal was to always share good vibes & energy with others that look for inspiration through music. In my quest to do that Briana has inspired me to truly follow my heart. She has taught me to trust myself & not to hide. Just to be me:) With that said, if you are ready to get down to business & have an organic blissful experience in finding your voice...I say sign up with Briana now!! Blessings!*M
