Hi, there! My name is Emilia L. and I can't wait to meet you! I have been teaching private voice and oboe lessons since 2012. My approach to teaching is expressing yourself naturally. I believe that as long as you maintain a healthy foundation, you can sing and play any style of music you want! I have been playing and singing since I was 8 years old, and recently graduated from Chapman University with Music Performance major with a double emphasis in Vocal and Oboe Performance. I am currently attending the University of Southern California for my Masters in Oboe Performance, while teaching in-home, in-studio, and online lessons worldwide!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Electric keyboard, acoustic guitar, oboe, english horn, video camera with professional-level sound, iMAC, speakers.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Portable keyboard, music stand, recording devices that can have recordings sent to students after or during lessons!

*** Specialties ***
I trained classically but personally enjoy singing Pop and Musical Theatre. Because of my background, I like to make sure that my students have good technique that carries through to singing any style they like so that they can accomplish all of their goals without damaging their voices and affecting their health. I have extensive experience with singing in languages including Spanish, French, German, and Italian and like my students to experience different languages as well.

She's a great teacher. She's really understanding and helps you understand how your voice works. From just a few classes that I took with her I learned more than I had known before and she's just a really great teacher including for people beginning how to learn to sing.

Emilia is an absolute delight to work with. She is kind, positive, and very talented at her craft. Her musicianship and singing are top notch. I highly recommend working with her!

I have had the opportunity to both study voice with Emilia, and observe her direct the children's choir at a local church I work at. Emilia is like a ray of sunshine and children just seem to gravitate towards her. She is very patient and encouraging and is able to connect well with her students. Having studied voice myself many years ago I decided to refresh my skills by studying with Emilia. She was able to pin- point some bad habits of mine right away and help me to overcome several obstacles I had been having with my voice. I highly recommend Emilia Lopez-Yanez to any prospective student, she is a delight to work with.
