Hello! Thanks for visiting my Takelessons profile. Let me start off by telling you a bit about myself:
I have been performing for over 20 years as a musician, acting since I was a small boy, and working consistently with public speaking, accent reduction and other presentational skills throughout my career. I started my musical education as a woodwind player and settled in to the wonderful world of singing over time. Music has opened me up to so many incredible opportunities from touring the world to performing in marvelous concert halls and working with some of today's most respected artists, as well as giving me the opportunity to expand my performance skills through acting in various plays, musicals, television, and film.
Performing has absolutely been my salvation! Throughout my life it has been a best friend and constant source of joy, and I share this gift with others so that it might help them to find the same joy. After more than 10 years of teaching, I have so many new experiences to draw from and share with my students. I've spent the last 9 years performing with Disney in California and abroad in their Tokyo Disney cast, and I must say that those experiences, vast and varied as they are, have given the word "performance" a new depth. I'm always excited to dive into every lesson with fresh ideas that will mesh well with many tried and tested teaching techniques.
Originally from Los Angeles, I now reside in Orange County and I'm especially proud to have expanded my studio to serving clients all over the world with online lessons via Skype and FaceTime! I get such joy from sharing my experiences with a diverse group of people from many walks of life.
If you're interested in learning more about my lesson style, feel free to contact me and I'd be happy to talk with you about a plan to help you reach your goals!
For Students of Voice: Teaching Style
Over the past several years I have focused much of my personal growth on developing my ears' ability to pick out and pinpoint vocal “placement”, resonance, subtleties of timbre, changes in pitch, breath support, air speed and flow, pronunciation and diction, and in general, the way in which all of these work together to create style. From these assessments, I work with the student’s particular needs to address each area individually and based on the learning style of each person.
To illustrate to the student their method as I see and hear it, as well as ways in which they might make changes to facilitate the ease of singing --be they changes of tessitura (range), length of phrase, tone color, the release of unnecessary tension etc.-- I make use of vocalise (vocal exercises), simile and metaphor, examples from recorded performances, demonstration, self assessment, and techniques to “trick” the voice into acting in a different way, in addition to videos, diagrams, and texts on anatomy and physiology. I feel that all of these tools provide a unique and personalized learning experience for each student.

I sang baritone and bass in the Dapper Dans at Disneyland in California for 5 years.

It's difficult to have a singing career without sometimes being called upon to stretch your performances into a bit of acting. I consider it a privilege to have performed at many theatres (Little Shop of Horrors, Beaverquest), and on both film and television (Waiting in the Wings: The Musical, Modern Family) and look forward to finding the time to do more acting in the future!+ Read More

Wonderful instructor. I recommend Eulis for anyone and everyone. God bless you Eulis!
Eulis is an expert singing teaching! I have some technical issues and he was able to hone right in on them and instantly solve them with advice and exercises. Instant voice improvement! I highly recommend Eulis!
I throughly enjoyed my session with Eulis. I learnt a lot. He understood my areas of concern very quickly and we started working on those.
After working with Eulis for 7 months my voice has undergone a complete transformation. It's clearer and stronger than I could have imagined in such a short time. Working with Eulis is very collaborative, he works with me to make sure singing is easy, efficient, and most importantly comfortable. I can tell he has a wide range of experience and influences because he's good at explaining how to achieve a different sound or style while maintaining good technique. He is very passionate about the voice and is always eager to help make wonderful music.+ Read More
Great teacher to learn from.
Really helps you feel comfortable with your own voice and works on strengthening and expanding what you have to offer.
Not consistent and same exercises that are being taught free on youtube
Very, very good instructor. I would highly recommend Eulis to anyone seeking help with their vocals at any level.
Eulis has very modest and patient way of teaching. He makes learning a personal endeavor for his student that is clear to see after the first lesson
I wish I had the funds to do longer classes. He is good. I look forward to class session 2.
Eulis' wealth of music knowledge and expertise is extensive but what makes Eulis an outstanding teacher is his ability to listen, diagnose and instruct in a manner that is easy going, flexible and fun.
My daughter really enjoyed the online piano lessons and feels very confident in practice for the upcoming performance. We will definitely schedule additional sessions when she has practice for a few weeks. Your teaching the online piano lessons was a great alternative to traditional lessons and experience for my daughter.
Knowledgeable, patient and experienced
Eulis is simply an amazing vocal coach. He not only identifies any corrections in your voice he actually clearly explains why your voice is behaving a certain way and has many solutions to correct the issue. He is a very patient and personable instructor that makes you feel comfortable, which is especially important if you are self concious about your voice like I am. Definitely saw major improvements while working with Eulis and I'm looking forward to continuing my lessons with him.+ Read More
Eulis is personable, highly intuitive, and not only knows his craft, but can teach it well. Highly recommend!
Very patient teacher. He will work with you at your pace and make sure you've got it down before you can proceed. Highly recommended.
Eulis is very attentive and encouraging. In my experience with training with him, I have come to appreciate how great a listener Eulis is as an instructor. he takes great care in making sure both sound and vocal technique are being executed in both a proper and efficient manner. Above everything else, Eulis is very friendly and positive towards the support he lends to his students. I highly recommend him.+ Read More
I have been working with Eulis for six months and he has helped me improve my speaking skills considerably. He keeps our sessions interesting, is able to focus in on the areas for improvement and provide the tools to make the improvements. Eulis is an excellent instructor and I highly recommend him to anyone seeking to become a better speaker.+ Read More

Eulis is an amazing teacher.
He is vibrant, encouraging, and gives great examples (and often humorous) examples to help better understand working the voice.
In just my very first lesson, he pinpointed huge holes in my singing that I never even noticed before in recordings of myself, and attuned each exercise specific to my needs.
I'm looking forward to improving with him!
(and he definitely deserves all five stars)
He is so awesome!! Lean a lot 😃
Eulis's advise was very helpful! I do not have any experiences with spoken word. I have learned to wisely incorporate inflection and pauses in my voice! I am looking forward to delivering my first spoken word presentation!
I am a dentist and my wonderful assistant was having trouble communicating with patients. Her voice was flat and monotone and she would freeze up when asked a question. Outside of work her voice and personality was completely different, and I wanted to see it come out when she worked with our patients. She did 5 online lessons with Eulis using Skype. I noticed a difference immediately, she was more confident and her personality began to show in her voice. I am very happy with the results and my assistant has stated that this has helped her in both her personal and professional life. She is no longer freezing up when asked a difficult question and is speaking in a more direct and purposeful way. Thank you Eulis!+ Read More
He's amazing ! I am never going to stop going!
Eulis is one in a million - he gives helpful constructive criticism while making you feel confident and at ease. As someone who can be rattled by being vulnerable in front of people, I MUCH appreciate this! On top of his knowledge and skills, his demeanor is also phenomenal. Playful yet professional, friendly yet respectful of boundaries. I'm thrilled I've found him and can't wait to see where my next lessons take me.+ Read More
He listens very well. He can pin point exactly what you are doing right and wrong to help you improve. Overall, super nice teacher who gives you his full attention. I have improved a lot with just 2 lessons.
Eulis is great teacher! He patiently teaches his students the foundations of music and then proceeds to have them apply it to the genre of music they enjoy singing. Highly recommended for any skill level.
Eulis is a great teacher.He is able to fix little problems you don't notice that makes a huge difference. I strongly recommend him to anybody that is looking forward to improving their voice .
Amazing teacher! He's very friendly, encouraging, and has a great ability to pinpoint areas to work on. Eulis care's a lot about his student's progress. I've improved greatly since starting. Can't get much better!
Eulis is wonderful, he takes his time, makes it fun, and always smiling.
My 5year old son is learning and retaining very well.
I highly recommend Eulis. I'm an experienced singer in the middle of an album project, and I was able to take away some huge tips I was able to put into practice immediately. His ears are incredibly sensitive and can hear what's going on with you in world class form. Highly recommend!!!+ Read More
I could not recommend a better teacher and person in Eulis. His kind spirit, patient demeanor, and gifted voice provides any student with a strong example of what a professional musician looks like. What most people need is someone who doesn't just paint by the numbers but who is able to assess your goals, talents and desires and match it with just the right program; you'll progress quickly and enjoy every minute of the effort. Because of his vast experience, breadth of skills and years of singing, Eulis provides the kind of musical insights that help you find out who you are and discover or refine your voice. Thanks, Eulis for all the great work we've done together and I look forward to more!+ Read More
Before we get to Eulis, let’s talk me ;) I am 18 years old, and until about a month ago I had not a bit of experience in singing. At all! YOLO though, so I got online and did the searches, and immediately found Eulis. I read he had some experience performing with Disney and he had some videos of himself singing. I was drawn in by his talent and apparent, very genuine love for voice and music, just as you probably were, in that you are taking the time to read his reviews! Anyways, let me just fill you in to how much more there is to Eulis. Right off the bat, Eulis is an extremely comfortable spirit who gives off a very sincere eagerness to help you in the journey to reaching your vocal potential. Every lesson I have had, I am surprised at how easy it is to develop a skill which forces so much vulnerability from those who try to master it. Eulis creates a completely safe and fun environment in his studio were you can take risks and play with music and your voice. I feel I have his complete dedication and attention in every minute of a lesson, and even through some assignments he gives me to complete independently. Also guys, improvement is fast under Eulis’s direction. In lessons he teaches to condition the entire performer. In other words, equal focus is split between the physicality and techniques of singing and the connection to emotions in music. The combination makes you feel more like a pro than you ever thought you would! Honestly, I could not be more confident that Eulis has the talent to bring out the best of my own. Just book your first lesson to see what I mean. Happy singing!+ Read More
Eulis is a consummate professional. He is engaging, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. I highly recommend him as a teacher!!!
