About Cyndi E.

Cyndi has been very successful as a singer/songwriter, artist developer, producer and teacher. Originally hailing from Dayton, Ohio, she has resided in Los Angeles for many years. She is currently living in Las Vegas, Nevada. She has performed all over the United States and the world as an artist singing on cruise lines such as The Royal Carribean, Carnival, NCL etc., and has shared the stage with The Jackson's, Barbara Striesand, Stevie Wonder, CeCe Winans and many others.

As a teacher, Cyndi has taught "Vocal Technique" to students of all ages ranging from 8-70 for the past 25 years. She was Youth and Young Adult Music Director for Crenshaw Christian Center, one of the largest mega churches in America, as well as A&R for their record label. As a songwriter/producer/artist developer on staff for 12 years, she produced numerous CD projects. Her song, "The Power of Faith," that she wrote for the Ever Increasing Faith broadcast can be heard all over the world daily on both television and radio. Because of her meticulous instruction, many of her students have gone on to obtain professional careers in the entertainment and music industry. Keisha Renee is currently a The Voice 2017 Team Blake competitor and has been back up singer and opener for the amazing R & B singer, JoJo. Keisha has also sang backups on the P Diddy 2016 Bad Boy reunion tour, she's also a member of Team Minaj as Nicki Minaj's main back up singer as well as numberous others. Julia Michaels, is currently one of America's leading songwriter/vocalist having sold 50 million copies of her songs worldwide and her newest single "Issues" has topped the Billboard chart. Julia was also the first American to ever sing for the closing ceremonies of the 2016 Olympics and has been nominated for MTV, Billboard and Grammy Awards! Jaden Michaels (Julia's sister) is currently topping the Radio Disney country charts with her latest singles for 2019, "Behave" and" Making Up". Amber Riley, another of her students, was a main cast member playing "Mercedes" on the 10 year Gplden Globe, Award winning TV show, "Glee" and has played the lead role of "Effie" on the Broadway musical, "Dream Girls" where she won the 2018 Olivier Award.

As a teacher, I get immense satisfaction from seeing my students excel and fly using the techniques and tools that I have taught them," Cyndi says beaming with pride. "My students have done tremendous things in the industry and it is my pleasure to continue to pass down the nuggets of wisdom and skill that I've obtained from over 30 years in the entertainment business."

Cyndi's training began at age 8 where she studied classical piano for 6 years. By age 15, she and her brother released their first independent single which did reasonably well locally. By age 19, while studying music at Ohio University, she along with her brother won "Right On" magazine's nationwide talent search and were offered two major recording contracts. She decided to sign with Philadelphia International Records under the auspices of Grammy Award winning producer, Thom Bell (who was recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame). She studied under Thom Bell and it was there that she learned the art of record production. She also studied vocal production under legendary Grammy Award winning producer, Hal Davis (Jackson five fame). Cyndi was taught proper vocal technique by vocal trainer to the stars, Seth Riggs and continued her private studies learning the vocal techniques of the great Alan Linquist. Her teaching style has subsequently morphed into a combination of all these great inspirational instructors.

As a teacher, Cyndi is kind, patient and extremely enthusiastic when it comes to instructing her students. Her students always see her as their friend and one who they know will bring out the best in them and desires that they grow to their fullest potential.

*** Lesson Details ***
When you come to Cyndi for voice lessons, you can rest assured that your vocals will never be the same. She is as comfortable teaching the beginner as she is instructing the seasoned professional who wants to hone their skills even further. She can always bring something out of you that you didn't know was there. Maybe it's the confidence that she exudes when she instructs, maybe it's her innate ability to know what's needed at any given time to make the student better. But whatever it is, you can rest assured that your lesson will be fun, thorough, and the lesson plan that she devises will cause you to arrive at the musical goals that you've set for yourself. She can help you or your child prepare for upcoming auditions, as well as any other scheduled performance. Cyndi will create a lesson plan that will certainly be tailor-made for your style and needs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring my Cd player to play tracks etc....the student should have a recording device to record the lesson, whatever performance tracks we'd be working from, and a keyboard would be helpful but not necessary.

*** Specialties ***
My style of vocal training concentrates on singing in the 'Ng" position and using cuperto as the primary way to produce more tone with less effort. I also train my students to breath properly utilizing the lower lumbar area along with breathing from their diaphragm. I generally train vocal students in all genres of music and I stress stage presence in conjunction with proper vocal technique.

Cyndi is the greatest teacher you will ever find! I continue to be amazed how she can choreograph each note and word to bring tones out of you that you didn't even know you had, while simultaneously bringing out your expression and soul to each phrase.

Cyndi is SO awesome!! I’ve learned so much about my voice since working with her. She teaches you everything you need to know about singing including proper techniques to ensure you get the most out of your voice and she’ll even focus on ear training! She’s so kind and patient, as well as outgoing and she’ll make sure you’re comfortable by going at a pace that’s good for you. I’m so glad I decided to train with her! Only 3 lessons in and I’ve loved each and every one because of her passion for teaching.
HIGHLY recommend! You won’t be disappointed(:

After my first lesson with Cyndi, first off, absolutely fantastic teacher and person! She was delightful to work with and proved she was well educated in the field of singing. Not only did I get good vibes from her but she pointed out my misguided techniques and discovered that I was singing wrong this whole time! From the start of our lesson I felt like I was learning singing all over again because I was preciously taught wrong technique by my so called “teacher” at my university. After working with Cyndi I finally learned how to sing correctly and this time with diaphragmatic support! I can’t wait for our next lesson together!! Thank you Cyndi!!

Cyndi was an amazing instructor. From the beginning, she was very welcoming and understanding. I learned a bunch of singing basics from the first lesson. Who knew I wasn't even breathing right? In the next few lessons, I applied the things I learned from the first lesson and got to work on songs that I wanted to sing. Overall this was a great experience and Cyndi was very helpful!

I absolutely loved taking lessons with Cyndi!

I was a complete beginner and even disliked singing out loud, especially in front of others, because I was too embarrassed by my inabilities to hit notes and stay in key. I also commonly ran into problems like hurting my throat and losing my voice. Despite these issues, I kept trying because I wanted to be able to sing.

I bought a set of 5 classes hoping to learn how to fix at least one of these problems, but I didn't expect to have tackled all of them within the first one! With enough practice after that lesson, I quickly moved onto the fun part - singing my favorite songs and working on style - by the second lesson.

Cyndi is an absolute pleasure to work with! Not only is she incredibly talented and experienced as a teacher, but she also has a special way of making you believe and showing you that you can sound great.

Cyndi helped me, a total beginner, find my voice and enjoy singing . . . out loud! I'm 120% sure she can do the same for you. And if you're still not convinced, try reading all the other 5 star reviews she has.

I am an adult learner who always had a passion for singing but was too afraid to perform in front of others. I have been practicing all my life, and about ten years ago, I started implementing how to books and YouTube videos. I am decent at learning many things on my own, but singing was not one of them. I wish that I knew about lessons with Cyndi a long time ago. Cyndi's knowledge is expansive and advanced. She knows how to make the most out of your voice and the song while allowing you to sing the style that you want to sing. Her exercises and explanations are very clear and answer so many lifelong questions for me. I definitely consider myself a beginner with a lot of bad habits, but Cyndi has the patience to help me until I get it right. I noticed a lot of improvement after the first lesson. After almost two months, I truly feel comfortable with recommending Cyndi to others because of the great improvements I hear that I sometimes didn't think I was capable of. It is a dream come true to be learning how to sing. These lessons are fun, and I look forward to them every week. Thank you, Cyndi! :)

Cyndi really is the best. instructor. ever.

Incredibly knowledgeable and encouraging, with an amazing ear and ability to tailor each lesson to my (very inexperienced) level and learning style—while making sure that I progress!

On top of that, she’s a good person. I always feel delighted after each class. The time is a labor of love and a big source of joy in my week.

Thank you, Cyndi! :)

Definitely recommend! Awesome combo of practical lessons while at the same time building up the basics of actually singing correctly. I'm a singer/songwriter and took a few basic lessons back in high school - but they weren't really pop-oriented. Cyndi has definitely improved my basic singing technique while also focusing on the type of music I want to actually play (pop). I suspect she's also pretty great teaching other styles since she references a lot of techniques that blend over into pop.

This is my second go round with Cyndi. I just love her so much. I have past a lot of comfort zones and she has helped me discover things about my voice. She is very patient and still has a great hear. She honest about what she hears and doesn't rush through the music. If a song is not for you and doesn't match your range or voice she will tell you. Cyndi is definitely not afraid to challenge you so embrace it because she knows what shes doing.

Yet another great practice! I've been trying to figure out what I am doing at the end of high notes that is causing weakness (or cracking) which is why I get scared to belt them out and now I feel like I understand what I am doing conceptually. Just gotta keep practicing and training to doing it practically. Even though this lesson was based on one particular song, I am excited to see how it impacts how I am able to sing others like it.

I am very excited about my singing lessons with Cyndi. Having never taken
singing lessons before, I went in nervous, not knowing what to expect.
Cyndi put me at ease from the start though. She exudes kindness, patience,
and encouragement, which are all things I really appreciate in a teacher.
She is well knowledgeable and although she is very professional, she never
makes the lesson feel like it is just a job to her. It’s obvious that Cyndi
not only loves what she does, but really puts her care into her students. I
especially love her thoroughness and astuteness to every minute point on my
note accuracy. She is a huge blessing, and I couldn’t be happier with her.
Looove her!

Cyndi does a great job with helping you achieve your goals. She used several different techniques that allowed me to focus on vocal tone, voice modulation, pace and speaking from my diaphragm. Cyndi is a great listener, very personable and exudes positive energy. Time and money spent with Cyndi is a great investment.

She took the time out to make sure I understood the proper technique and how to achieve desired results. I have learned so much in this first lesson than I have by my fourth lesson with other vocal coaches! She made me feel so comfortable as I am extremely shy and nervous, however, she was able to break me out of my shell. I will most definitely continue sessions with Cyndi, I might not ever let her go!

Cyndi is truly a blessing she is very patient and very good at what she does . It's my first time learning about singing and I'm glad I'm learning from a true professional. She is passionate and very friendly. I actually love my first class so much I actually told my best friend he should also take her class . I'm very exited to continue in this journey. She exceptional I'm very happy I chose her . :)

Before deciding to do my vocal lessons online I searched through many of the teachers on the database and I came across Ms. Cyndi's page - I was impressed with her qualifications and accomplishments but what won me over were the students' reviews. The one review that stood out was a student saying that as soon as he/she selected Ms. Cyndi as their teacher and Ms. Cyndi was notified she immediately called them to introduce herself. I remember saying wow now that's great but I also thought that was just for that one student but I still admired that she did that. So I read the other reviews that really showed Ms. Cyndi was not only a great teacher but a teacher that made sure each of her students received her undivided attention and each student's lesson was made personally for them. So I spoke with my husband and children about Ms. Cyndi and I called takelessons and they agreed that Ms. Cyndi would be a great fit for me. As soon as I paid for my lessons and hung up with takelessons I would say 1 minute later EXACTLY one minute later - my phone starts to ring - I didn't recognize the number but I just had to see who was calling me from Washington and it was Ms. Cyndi. I was super impressed!! Our discussion was encouraging and it was great and she made me feel EXCITED about starting my first lesson with her. So far I only had two lessons with Ms. Cyndi and I can tell you this - I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. Thank you Ms. Cyndi for ALL of your encouragement and for your patience. Best regards.

Cyndi is phenomenal !!!! Her kind, pleasant, encouraging, sweet voice makes her very easy to work with. I have taken 5 lessons with her so far, she has enabled me to do things with my voice that I did't think I would be able to do. Working with Cyndi has re-built my confidence, I've learned to dissect songs in groups and use my listening hear, work my diaphragm to enhance my tone and strength. I couldn't be happier. Thank you so very much. I love you to the moon and back.

I must say that after reviewing my journal of the lesson, I had to give Cyndi that last start to make it 5. I really saw how passionate she is when it comes to her instruction. I'm a happy camper.

Cyndi is always prepared for each lesson. She's very knowledgable and patient with me(I'm old and set in my ways). But she doesn't give up!
I'm learning new techniques I've not ever tried before. Although I find it challenging, and sometimes difficult, I know her instruction will pay off in the long run.

Cyndi is a very patient, supportive, and encouraging teacher to my 8 yr old daughter. My daughter's singing range and confidence has increased greatly. Cyndi was able to find a singer style that my daughter could sing to and build off of.

I absolutely love Cyndi!! She is an unparalleled expert. I notice my voice really improving each week because of the exercises she gives me to practice. She knows exactly what exercises to give your voice at the correct moment--sometimes she even tailors an exercise or creates an exercise just to fit your voice! Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable, but she also is extremely encouraging and gives me confidence. :)

It's also important to have an organized instructor--my last singing instructor never remembered where I was at or what we had done in the previous week's lesson. Cyndi takes advantage of all the time in the lesson and has a notebook organized by her student's names to record what we've worked on and the exercises she will give me for the next lesson! I'm really blown away by all the care Cyndi puts into each lesson. She also responds very quickly to texts and emails--when I registered for my first lesson I was a little nervous. But just a few minutes after I registered, I got a phone call from Cyndi asking questions about my experience and knowledge and connecting with me.

I can't say enough good things about Cyndi--every lesson has been great and I highly recommend you take lessons with her!! :)

My first lesson with Cyndi was a complete giant step towards my goal. She explains things well and we hit it off right away. We got right to work on the good technique that I had never had. She pushed me to the limit and more, which is what I asked her to do.
Aside from doing the all-important breathing and scale work I learned the secret of an effective vibrato. She explained it in a very simple way. For me it was a revelation to think of it like this; an immediate breakthrough for me!
I was sent home with some breathing exercises and scale work as well as how to effectively sing the song I had brought along to work on with her.

Cyndi has a beautiful soul and is a very effective and positive teacher.

Thank's Cyndi! See you next week.

Cindy Is one of the best teachers! I love how she works with my girls, she takes her time and doesn't miss details. She's an outgoing person and my girls are always so excited to go to her lessons. I'm really greatful to have her as my daughters teacher. I know because of her skills my girls will go far in singing. I highly recommend her as a teacher.

My daughter and I are very happy with Cyndi's work, doing jazz vocal instruction.

My daughter walks out of each session with an ear to ear grin because Cyndi not only has taught her well and taken full advantage of the time spent, but also because Cyndi is a great encouraging force who brings some TLC to the lessons and positive support that helps my daughter's confidence (an area that she sometimes has struggles with).

Cyndi brings the "whole package" with professionalism, understanding of the craft, a determination to help a student get things right before moving up and on to the next step/level. She also brings a great deal of patience, as well as the TLC catering to the needs of my daughter and working with her at a realistic pace with the goal of mastering skills.

She communicates with me as needed/requested and has been very accommodating when needed. My daughter previously worked with another singing instructor and we had a bit of a disappointing experience. We drive 10x as far now to meet with Cydni because she is worth the commute.

Cyndi is a great instructor. She goes through the material very thoroughly and helps you perfect each part. I am an adult and have never sung before but am slowly gaining confidence and skills through her lessons. She's also a lot of fun to work with and flexible in her scheduling which is very convenient since sometimes I have to reschedule around work conflicts.

Cyndi is amazing! I noticed an improvement in my singing after our first lesson. Since then she has been helping me to focus in on all those little details that make jazz such a beautiful art. She pushes me to perfect every detail and I am a better singer because of it! Her focus on technique is critical to jazz singing. To top it all of, she is one of the nicest people I've ever met!

Ms.

Cyndi has been really helpful in teaching me song technique...from vocal placement to how I should hold my mouth when singing from note to note. When I first came to Cyndi I really lacked confidence in my voice, but now I am gradually becoming more confident in regards to how I sound and also how I look when singing. I am hoping to continue lessons with Cyndi throughout the Summer and I'm sure by then my voice will be stronger and my confidence in singing will increase even more!

You Gotta Take Lessons with Her

Cyndi is fantastic. She is very patient and makes you feel comfortable. I am a beginner-beginner. She had to start me off with the very basics but she has made me work but made it fun. She is very knowledgeable and knows how to convey her knowledge to you as a student. If you want to begin/get better/perform better, then don't wait--sign up with Cyndi now.

I'm a working musician wanting to take my singing to a professional level. Cyndi has truly helped me to sing with support, increase my range, use proper phrasing and discover parts of my voice and didn't know I had. I look forward to each lesson with her fun and productive teaching.Thanks so much

Cyndi - Thanks so much for working with Katie. I can tell she learned a lot just after three lessons. She went from being a soft shy singer to a loud confident singer. You taught her how to sing from her diaphragm. Your trade secrets for hitting the high notes are working beautifully. She is excited to sing the National Anthem at the school talent show. Thanks to you, she'll be a hit!
