While quality of sound is not as demanding, technique and ideas are paramount.
I teach rapping to beginners, intermediate, advanced, and touring professionals. During your first lesson I do a computer analysis of your voice, I find out what your goals are in singing, what your favorite kinds of music are, and I take you in the direction you want to go and show you how to get there in the shortest possible time. I always record my students so that they know how they sound to others. I also make a CD of them singing to background music if they wish, included in the cost of the lessons for no extra charge. Learn to sing beautifully, and most important, emotionally. Learn the parts of your vocal instrument, How each works, How they work together. Develop Breath support (80% of singing). Learn how to do the Singer's Formant, "Squillo" (that "ringing" sound of professionals). Learn how to conquer nervousness, learn Resonance, Overtones, Vibrato, How to sing high notes, Learn the "singing vowels", and more. I would rather teach singing than eat chocolate, and if you knew how much I like chocolate, you'd know my passion for teaching singing. I've been studying voice since third grade, and teaching singing for eighteen years. I've had nine singing teachers myself, so I know just how you feel. I get you comfortable, and I listen closely to what you want to do and where you want to go with your singing voice. My students learn all the important aspects of singing right away, rather than drawing them out over time. I teach all styles of singing including Pop, Blues, Classical, Rock, Jazz, Scat Singing, Belting, Country and Western, and Rap. I teach singing in English, Italian, Spanish, and German. As my singing student you'll have access to the four books I've written on singing: SING BETTER FAST: a complete but concise treatise on vocal technique (It includes a Practice CD with a free recording studio program to install into your computer); HOW TO CONQUER NERVOUSNESS FOR SINGERS, HOW TO GET STANDING OVATIONS FOR SINGERS, and SING BETTER FAST 2, ADVANCED SINGING. I believe these four books are the most current and relevant works on these subjects available today. My Bachelor's and Master's Degrees are from California State University Dominguez Hills. Put your singing voice in my hands. You'll love the results.
About Carl B.

I love teaching singing to all ages and all levels, including Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, and Touring Professionals. I teach all styles of singing, including Pop, Musical Theater, Gospel, Classical, Rock, Jazz, Scat Singing, Belting, Country and Western, and Rap. I am a very high level singing teacher, but I also LOVE teaching beginners. Think you're the only one who feels terrifying nervousness? MOST EVERYONE DOES, including the biggest stars. I'll teach you all about nervousness and how to manage it from my book, "How To Conquer Nervousness For Singers". I also teach how to sing karaoke to impress an audience. I've been studying Audience Psychology for more than 15 years, and MY ENTIRE ORIENTATION IN TEACHING SINGING IS TO, "DRIVE YOUR AUDIENCE TO THEIR FEET FOR A STANDING OVATION!" I have studied all the major singing teachers of the last 250 years, and my book, "Sing Batter Fast" available on Amazon, includes everything I have learned from them, plus my own singing and teaching experience. I have had nine singing teachers in my life, so I know where you're coming from, and just how you feel. During your first lesson I will do a computer analysis of your voice. I find out what your goals are in singing, and what your favorite kinds of singing are. I take you in the direction you want to go and show you how to get there in the shortest time. The four books I've written on singing are entitled, "SING BETTER FAST", (Complete vocal technique in brief, available on Amazon), "HOW TO CONQUER NERVOUSNESS FOR SINGERS" (Not only manage, but USE nervousness in your singing). I've also written, "HOW TO GET STANDING OVATIONS FOR SINGERS" (How to drive your audience to their feet for a standing ovation), and "ADVANCED SINGING" for advanced and touring professionals. I always record my students so that they know how they sound to others. I can make a CD of you singing to an orchestra of background music if you wish, all included in the cost of the lessons at no additional cost to you. Learn to sing beautifully, and most important, EMOTIONALLY! Learn the parts of your vocal instrument Learn how each part works and how they work together. Develop Breath support (80% of singing). Learn "The Singer's Formant", that "ringing" sound of professionals. Learn about Resonance, Overtones, Vibrato. Learn how to sing high notes, Learn the "singing vowels", and more. I would rather teach singing than eat chocolate, and if you know how much I like chocolate, you understand my passion for teaching singing. I've been studying voice since third grade, and teaching singing for twenty-four years. I've had nine singing teachers myself, so I know just how you feel. I get you comfortable, and I listen closely to what you want to do and where you want to go with your singing voice. My students learn all the important aspects of singing right away, rather than drawing them out over time. I teach singing in English, Italian, and Spanish My Bachelor's and Master's Degrees are from California State University Dominguez Hills. Put your singing voice in my hands. You'll love what happens. *** Lesson Details *** My introductory class includes a computer analysis of your singing voice, then describes the main parts of your vocal instrument, how each works, and how they work together. It teaches you what a song is, and how to sing a song well right away. During the first lesson I record every student for computer analysis, and so the student can hear how they sound to others. Remember the first time you heard yourself in a recording and said, "That's not me!" I'll explain that to you, and why it's so important to record yourself and listen to your recordings. Your lessons are designed toward YOUR goals and desires in singing, and include specific guides for your between lessons practice sessions. I record CD's for students, included in the price of the lessons. You can have a CD of yourself singing for you to to play, to give to your family and friends, or perhaps to sell. *** Studio Equipment *** Lessons are in my home studio, with recording equipment and Computerized Voice Analysis, high quality recording microphones, computer, control panel, keyboard, and music equipment. *** Specialties *** I teach singing in English, Italian, Spanish, & German, in all styles, including Pop, Blues, Gospel, Classical, Rock, Jazz, Scat Singing, Belting, Country and Western, and Rap.
