Hello! My name is Brianne and I am a professional performer, actress, and vocalist. Originally residing in LA, I decided to further my education and experience by enrolling in the jazz voice program at CSU Sacramento.
From as early as elementary school, I began singing and performing in my church choir and musicals. Once I got older, I began to take vocal lessons at Van Tuyl Music Academy in Huntington Beach, at which I continued to do for 6 years. At the age of 16, I began performing as a professional lead singer of the wedding and entertainment band High Altitude. I currently perform as a lead singer of ESSEX, an entertainment band that is well known in the Sacramento region.
Though voice is my primary focus of study, theatre and musical theatre is another huge passion of mine. Throughout my high school years, I have also been in a variety of professional theatre productions, playing Hermia in A Midsummer Night's Dream, the Witch in Into The Woods, And a dancer/ Marguerita in Steven Sondheim's West Side Story.
In the middle of high school, I became more intrigued by the jazz genre, and the beauty and complexity that lies in a vocal jazz ensemble. While performing with Downey High School Epic Jazz Choir, we performed and often placed in the top 3 at the Monterey, Folsom, Reno jazz festivals. We also had the honor of performing at the JEN jazz festival held in New Orleans, Louisiana. I currently perform with CSUS Voices under the direction of Gaw Vang Williams. Last winter, we had the honor of sharing the stage with the very well established vocal jazz group New York Voices.
Though I mainly sing contemporary music and RnB, I truly love all styles and can teach students the foundational and essential vocal technique that can be applied to any style of music you want to sing and perform. I can also give guidance on how to read music at a beginning and intermediate level and how to play the ukelele and piano as an accompaniment to singing. As a musician, it is very important to me that a student developes their knowledge of music as well as their own beautiful and unique sound. By working together, I know we can achieve it! :)
I teach vocal lessons to students ages 5-18.
