Over the years, Fawn has been known to bring students into her inner circle, so they can gain more experience and exposure, taking them to red carpets, events and even putting them up onstage to perform.

Fawn is wonderful! She helped my teenage son, who had never sung before get over his shyness and ultimately get a part in the high school musical. She is always prepared, on time, excited, happy and able to coach the best out of even the shyest of students. She worked tirelessly with my son on improving his voice, his abilities, his knowledge of music and his tryout piece. I would recommend her to anyone who has always wanted to sing but doesn't think he or she can. My son is proof that Fawn can help anyone improve their voice and be confident enough to not only sing in public but get the part.+ Read More
Fawn is a very thorough, interesting, charismatic, gifted and knowledgeable mentor with her music lessons, she knows how to ignite a child's love for music and keep the enthusiasm going . We're happy to have found her. :)
Fawn is a gem. A true diamond among rocks. Not only is she gorgeous, she is hunble, generous, kind and talented. You would never guess that she has had several top 10 hit songs. When you see all the record awards on her wall you realize it's just the tip of the iceberg. Fawn walks the walk. I have grown and improved unlike any other time with any other teacher. I am in awe of my own success and I owe it all to Fawn.+ Read More
Miss Fawn is very professional, knowledgable and patient. My twelve-year-old son actually got more out of one lesson with her than from several lessons received by his other Juilliard trained private instructor. After just a few months, I can't believe the high level of music and songs he is playing. Fawn not only makes him master his fingering, music theory, reading notes and his touch, but she gives him a test after each level, without telling him in advance. She says she "wants to know what he's absorbed" and "what's become part of him." Then whatever he can't remember, she focuses on, tests him again after they have covered what he is lacking in and so on and so on, until it all becomes part of him. She also assigns him reading material about different composers and has him listen to one piece each of them have written. Miss Fawn doesn't miss a thing. On top of being an incredible teacher, Her experience, thoroughness, talent, patience, and great personality definitely count and are what I consider music magic for my son. Thank you Miss Fawn.+ Read More
All three of my son's whose ages are 8, 12 and 22 years, love Fawn. She's the real deal. Very personable, patient and kind.
Fawn is a beautiful person inside and out. She is very giving of her time, energy and expertise. I appreciate this about her. I have become an incredible musician because of her guidance. I continue to grow and learn, and I am very appreciative to have found her.+ Read More
An absolutely wonderful experience taking lessons from Fawn. She's talented, professional, patient, highly knowledgeable, funny and truly a wonderful teacher. If you're considering taking lessons, do yourself a favor and just jump in with Fawn...you'll be glad you did!+ Read More
Fawn is the real deal.
My 4-year-old LOVES, and I mean LOVES Fawn! (All my children love her, but they aren't old enough to start lessons). Fawn is excellent with all children. She keeps my daughter laughing, yet focused and even though Fawn started her in a lesson book for 8 years old and up, Fawn felt my girl could handle it, and she is moving very quickly and learning to read notes too. This family loves Fawn, and it's a joy having her come each week. My daughter is motivated and excited to do her flash cards, draw notes and play and read songs.+ Read More
Fawn is an excellent instructor. She's very positive, honest, encouraging and helpful. I saw changes in the first lesson, and as I have continued, so has my progress. Having Fawn as a vocal coach is a game changer. HIGHLY recommend!
Perfect teacher for me! LOVE her!
Fawn makes it easy to learn and she is also easy to have a conversation with. She makes lessons personable and not so formal, so it makes it more comfortable to learn. I find myself opening up more and more, and as this happens, I am advancing faster and faster and getting to the heart of my goals and the areas where I need to continue to grow. Fantastic teacher, fantastic person!+ Read More
I have been learning from Fawn or almost a year now and I really enjoy our lessons. Fawn is very kind, interesting, charismatic and very fun. She has helped me learn a lot in a year's time, so I feel very ready to start performing. I know she will guide me through this process and I am looking forward to it.+ Read More
I absolutely love this teacher -- you couldn't find a better one! Fawn is so easy to work with and has taught me a lot, more than I ever imagined possible. I highly recommend her to both beginning and advanced students.
I always receive excellent exercises in practicing to strengthen my voice from Fawn. In addition, Fawn is very positive and upbeat when working with me. She gears our lessons to my particular situation and I appreciate all of her good advice, fine-tuning abilities and help. She is fantastic!+ Read More
Fawn is very helpful, knowledgeable and personable. I look forward to every lesson each week and am advancing very quickly
I highly recommend Fawn. Our 16 year old takes singing and piano lessons from Fawn and loves her! She has a very impressive musical background and is very good at working with kids and getting them to feel comfortable and express themselves.
Fawn is a great teacher and a beautiful person. We have used her talent to teach our daughter piano from age 6 through 9. She also teaches voice - she is herself a great performer. Don’t look any further... Fawn has it all
Fawn is great with kids. She's great with adults too. My kids love her, my husband and I also take lessons and love her too. She's very thorough in her teaching and advancement is fast and fun. We never have to ask out kids to practice, even after 2 years! Never experienced that with the other teachers. Fawn is also very humble. She has a stellar music career, but you would never know it by her down to earth personality. HIGHLY recommend her to any child or adult wanting to pursue piano, songwriting or voice.+ Read More
Sincerely the best. I just performed my first sold out show and I owe it all to Fawn. I was completely shy and had no confidence in my voice or my abilities. She told me I could do it and for some reason I started to believe her! We recorded some songs in her studio and the response on YouTube was excellent. She taught me how to produce my own voice in the studio and set me up with equipment and showed me on my own gear. Before I knew it I was writing and producing my own songs and now I have a sold out show! My life has changed because of this incredible loving and talented person. Thank you Fawn!!+ Read More
Fawn has the voice of an angel. Very fitting to her as a person. Fawn literally IS an angel on earth. Fawn is a giver. She gives you all she's got and then she gives you more. It's because of her giving nature, determination and "never say never" attitude that I have pulled out of my darkest hours and moments and risen from the ashes into a new and improved recording artist. If you want real results and further your career, Fawn is the one to study with and learn from. My career is blossoming and I know in my heart it would not have happened without this incredible woman. Thank you+ Read More
Fawn is engaging, interesting, vibrant and not only gifted inner many musical talents, but in teaching, communication and inspiration. I have had real growth and improved beyond my wildest imagination because of her skills. Thank you Fawn, words cannot express how grateful I am to you.+ Read More
Patient, knowledgable, kind, talented. Fawn has all these qualities and more! Highly recommend her. You'll be lucky to get a slot with this popular and busy piano teacher. And an added bonus is, she's great at teaching singing too! Win and win.
I am so grateful for the Internet and online vocal lessons with Fawn. She is ABSOLUTELY the BEST vocal
Coach I have ever had!
Miss Fawn (as we call her) has consistently shown professionalism, enthusiasm, and patience in teaching our boys how to play the piano. Each week she goes above and beyond in keeping their attention and helping them learn in a calm, fun and entertaining manner. We enjoy her kind-hearted spirit as she shows them new techniques and insists on them perfecting the ones they've previously learned. Miss Fawn constantly leads by examples with high, yet attainable expectations that push our boys to the next level. We highly recommend Fawn for anyone searching for an instructor with poise, personality, a wealth of knowledge and sincere passion for her craft.+ Read More
Fawn is a very warm and sensitive teacher. She exhibits gentle toughness and she knows her stuff!! I'm so glad to have her as my teacher.
Fawn gives piano lessons to my stubborn and cannot-sit-still 5 year-old. He loves her. She is very patient and able to keep a young student engaged and excited during the entire lesson by changing the curriculum based on the child's progress and interests. My son clearly makes progress in mastering piano but most importantly, he loves studying it! Fawn is an excellent music teacher for young kids!+ Read More
Fawn is patient, knowledgeable, and eager to help.
Sessions with Fawn are always very helpful and she is knowledgeable on all of my musical topics (piano, songwriting, voice, performance, theory) and she is always prepared and positive, cheerful, and extremely patient. She also is very good at finding different ways to explain things so I can understand them. Well worth the hourly rate. All around, exactly what I could've hoped for in a private music teacher. A+++++
Fawn is living proof that all vocal coaches are not the same! I have had 4 other vocal coaches, and none of them gave me what I needed, or provided the kind of growth that Fawn has. I saw immediate results in the first lesson! Now, a year later I can say I am a completely different singer. I'm no longer just 'a singer', am now, truly a professional vocalist with a career that is thriving and growing into the direction of my biggest dreams. I look forward to my continued growth and improvement with her as my guide. In my opinion, Fawn's expertise and teaching are cutting edge and the best there is available today.+ Read More
We are going into our third year this fall with Fawn. She is amazing with our 7-year-old daughter. Fawn is a fabulous teacher! She's great with kids and really cares about her students progress, and them personally. The best part about learning with Fawn, is that our daughter looks forward to her lessons with her, even after 2 years! There aren't a lot of piano teachers you can say that about! I and thrilled to see her thrive and to be playing at such a high level already! I am one Happy momma!+ Read More
Having a strong musical background (20+ years), I was stoked when my boyfriend told me he wanted to improve his piano playing. Let me rephrase that--LEARN how to play piano. He had bought a piano three years earlier and never played it.
He had NO natural musically ability, barely being able to hold a beat let alone understand time and key.
He started lessons in Berkeley for three months and didn't seem to improve, then we found Fawn and signed up for lessons, even though I was skeptical about it being online. Within a month of playing, he was understanding the foundation of music, improv, ect., and Fawn REALLY pushed him. 15 months later he has a solid playing and reading ability, even though his work only allows him 1-2 hours a week of practice. Fawn is teaching both the fundamentals plus improve, scales, etc. that really push him to be a better piano player. She encourages him to chose pieces he loves as well. Soon they will start songwriting. I am thoroughly impressed.
Smart, witty, talented and fun. Fawn's truly gifted at helping people grow their talent and their own brand. I'm so lucky to have found her. Fawn is dedicated to making you be the best you there is. Because of all her hand's on care and hard work helping me, I was able to audition for The Voice and make it into the top 6. Now I'm recording my first album, and Fawn is teaching me how to produce my own vocals and songs as I work with top industry producers. I will be forever grateful for her.+ Read More
Fawn is a pleasure to work with, I learn something new and grow after each lesson. I am very impressed with her. After 3 years of piano, voice and songwriting, I can compete with the best now. Fawn has been instrumental in helping me get heard and get paid. Not only is she an incredible talent, she's a great business woman of integrity. I look forward to continuing my journey of growth with her.+ Read More
The best teacher you can imagine!!!!! Smart, funny, professional, talented and a real motivator! Fawn is absolutely brilliant! When I started to take singing lessons I really thought 'I am a hopeless case.' I always wanted to sing but I was sure that I will never be able to learn it... And after only a few lessons with Fawn my voice felt completely different and suddenly I could sing songs that always seemed impossible for me to sing. Fawn is amazing, she always works with you on your individual problems and strengths and is always motivating. I have a completely different voice after training the past year with her. For me, there couldn’t be any better singing teacher than her!+ Read More
Fawn is one of the best musicians I know (and I know quite a few), so I was honored to have the chance to work with her and become one of her students. She is good at gauging my proficiency level and working at a pace that suits my needs. Sometimes scheduling issues come up on my end, and she is always readily adaptable, understanding and willing to add extra time if forget a lesson or cancel less than 48 hours before my scheduled time. As incredible as she is, I have no doubt that her prowess as an instructor shall only increase. I would recommend her to anyone and I look forward to continually improving my craft of songwriting, playing and singing.
I tried other teachers for my songwriting craft and vocal career. I felt like I was going nowhere fast and became frustrated. Then I tried Fawn. Game changer! Fawn was clear and concise. I finally see progress with her. She has inspired me to become more passionate about music again. I had almost given up. Thank you Fawn! I look forward to continuing lessons with you. You are a blessing.+ Read More
Engaging, Inspirational, Motivational, Professional, Compassionate, Talented, Honest, Concise, Charismatic, Sincere, Fun, Personable, On point. And so much more. Thx Fawn
Fawn is the kind of teacher who really cares about her students. She is giving of her time and doesn't stop until she solves whatever issue is going on that needs to be worked out or fixed. She is honest and I have huge respect for her and have had unbelievable growth taking lessons from her. I look forward to what the future holds and how much more I will continue to improve. I've had other private music teachers and none of them were as incredible as Fawn. She is one of a kind and your lesson experience will be as well. She tailor makes the lesson to my goals and what I actually need. Doesn't waste time on things other teachers would. I highly recommend her.+ Read More
Fawn has a great way of explaining things that keep the process simple, yet effective. I had two other piano instructors before I started taking lessons from Fawn, and neither were nearly as good. Fawn is the only piano teacher I've had that kept the whole learning process fun. I was able to learn a lot from her in such a short period of time. She makes the process enjoyable and addresses blocks and helps you break through them. Because of her, I'm playing at a super high level now. Every once in awhile I will call her to come in for help on an issue right before a performance. I would definitely recommend contacting her and setting up an appointment!+ Read More
Fawn is wonderful, just wonderful! Got an issue with your voice? Solved. Problem with piano? Solved. Need to tighten up your songs or studio recordings? Solved. Not only is she super great at fine tuning and making you the best you can be, she gets to the root of the issues, which in my case stemmed from my childhood. She uprooted all that, helped me walk through and heal my past so I could free up my voice. Fawn is intuitive, kind hearted, humble, open, honest and an expert at making a person the best that they can be. I love her, and you will too. Truly the best! Thank you for everything Fawn!+ Read More
Fawn is great! I really have learned a lot from her and also my voice has improved as I continue to practice the tips she gave me. :)
Fawn is more than a teacher, she's a mentor and a trusted ally in this crazy business of music. I decided to wait and write this review for July 4 because Fawn gave me my independence! What better day to celebrate her, than today? Under Fawn's guidance, I'm not the same performer on stage, vocalist or musician I once was, before I was scared, my voice would crack, my hands would shake, my legs felt wobbly. NOW, I am strong, fierce, fearless and independent! No more vocal issues thanks to her brilliant endurance training! For the first time, I performed in front of a crowd of 5,000, and rather than being afraid, I was excited! I could not have done that without Fawn. I am so excited for what the future holds. I won't give up my time with Fawn for nothin'! Here's to bigger audiences, more music, and YOU, Fawn! xx+ Read More
Fawn is simply awesome! She is so engaging, a real pro and fun. She covers so much in just one class and it is never boring. She makes each class entertaining. If you need it, she gives you step by step instructions on what needs to happen, and how to do it, so listen closely!! Fawn can cover material quickly and thoroughly and she gets right to the point and is spot on. She's like a music ninja. Much respect for her!+ Read More
Yesterday I did something I would have never done had I not met Fawn. I auditioned for a very 'hard to get into' classical choir, with chosen solos. Out of 40 sopranos auditioning, they chose ME! At first, I was shy at the audition, then I remembered Fawn's words "you can do this" and "you were born to do this" it gave me strength and confidence. I remembered how she always says, "All you have to do is believe it to make it happen" and I remembered how she taught me to hold myself and the shape of my mouth, and I noticed that all the professionals held themselves the same way, and I did it. When the director asked me to hit a high note in full voice (one I used to not be able to reach), at first I was hesitant, then I said to myself, "Fawn taught you how to do this, you can do it" and I did. I have been training on and off with Fawn for a year. She is so right when she says, "You can do anything you set your mind to do". I can not wait to get back in and do some more work! Getting in this specialized group who goes on tour is a dream come true for me and something I know for a fact would not have happened without Fawn. Thank you so much Fawn!+ Read More
Can't say enough good stuff about Miss Fawn. I wouldn't have made top 10 on American Idol without her guidance. Brilliant vocal coach. Hit songwriter. Piano perfection. With her at the helm, trust me, you will grow! You will become not good, not great, but spectacular! What else could you ask for? She's got the AGT, The Voice and Idol hook up! Not only is Fawn a talent in her own right and a true professional, she helps other further their own musical careers by putting you in front of the right people. I enjoy my lessons with her and I am also a big fan!+ Read More
Fawn is a great teacher. She is patient (especially because English is not my first language). I learn a lot with her. I really recommend her class. I look forward to more classes with Fawn! Fawn is a special teacher
Vocal Training, Performance, Script and Acting.
I''m an actor who has to sing in 1-2 episodes of a new show I'm in, so I started taking voice with fawn because she came highly recommended by another actor I work with. I totally think she is great and I recommend her to anyone who wants to improve their speaking or singing voice or become more confident in their performances. She also helps me with my script preparation and I think she is a wonderful person and teacher. Thank you, Fawn!
Fawn is amazing. Have been taking lessons from her for several years. Weekly/Bi-weekly. I am an adult student and have made nice progress in that time. She is encouraging, affordable and an overall great instructor.
Technology today is incredible. I'm in Norway, Fawn is in Los Angeles. Where else could I find a quality teacher with a couple of hit songs help me at my craft? If it weren't for the internet I would have never found such a talented songwriter to help me tighten my songs. I love, love, LOVE the time I spend with Fawn hashing out my songs to record with my band in the studio. She is so gifted, easy going, precise and fun. She really respects keeping the integrity and emotions of my songs and is good at keeping people open to changes that are necessary to make a mediocre song great.+ Read More
I have been working with Fawn for 4 years and have passed 11 levels of music theory and note spelling and 8 levels of lesson books with her. I can play anything I want, including high-level classical pieces, pop songs, movie soundtrack pieces, ragtime and jazz (I don't like jazz very much). Even though Fawn is very fun and can be silly, she has just the right amount of strict to her. She is quite fun to be with and I have gotten very far on piano (and other instruments now) and will continue to excel with her as my teacher. If I could give her more stars, I would.+ Read More
One of the best teachers very patient and knowledgeable.
I've always wanted to learn the basics of piano so I can learn how to play my favorite songs, I never thought this would be possible until Fawn, She is so good; informative, strict; fun; patient; thorough; honest; detailed in helping me build my foundation with note reading, scales, theory, ear training, songs, composition, and exercises so I can now play everything I want to with ease.+ Read More
Fawn is as good as it gets! A true pro. I am thrilled with the changes in my vocal abilities and performances onstage. Thanks so much Fawn!
Fawn has proven herself over the past 3 years to be an excellent teacher in music theory, piano, songwriting, voice, performance and as a producer in the studio. I consider her to be one of the best vocal producers and coaches that I have ever worked with, and I know that if you take lessons from her, you will learn and grow in leaps and bounds in all ways positive and powerful.+ Read More
I can't imagine where I'd be if I had not crossed paths with Fawn. She is one talented woman. I am a coloratura soprano with a degree in vocal performance from the New England Conservatory of Music; when I met Fawn I was struggling to simply keep my head above water as I attempted to readjust to life in the city after spending several years recovering from a traumatic vocal chord injury. I had tried everything traditional Western medicine had to offer as well as several alternative healing methods but nothing was working to get me back on track towards the performing career that I wanted. Many practitioners that I had met with previously had at most a shallow understanding of the unique and very complicated physical and emotional demands of a professional operatic career and I was dispirited, hopeless and seriously considering giving up the thought of ever performing at all much less professionally again.
Since I began studying with her last summer, she has helped me find a physical and mental equilibrium that I previously thought was unattainable. In addition, I have gained an invaluable and specific practical understanding of my personal challenges and strengths as a direct result of the unique and deeply insightful ways in which she handles any problem I bring to her. In a few short months my life and outlook has changed tremendously. I had the courage to audition for and consequently booked my first professional gig since my injury, began the process of planning a production of an original composition and have been encouraged by my teacher to seriously consider singing for both national and international auditions next year. If there is a "Vocal Whisperer" Fawn is it.
To be truly understood as a performing artist (and one dealing with a vocal injury while attempting a career, is a rare and amazing experience. Not only is she amazingly well versed in several nutritional, spiritual and physical disciplines but her unique ability to adjust them into a specialized program for your specific situation and personality type make the service she offers invaluable and like nothing else I've ever experienced. Not only is she deeply empathic, compassionate, giving and sympathetic but she is also refreshingly disciplined in her ability to organize you and get to the heart of the matter. She tailors your lessons in a way that makes them easily accessible and memorable. She has the rare ability to inspire you. She never makes you feel judged, she never 'shames' you into compliance (like my other coaches did), but instead Fawn encourages and wins you over with a warm and comforting sense of humor and grace.
I am deeply grateful to have had and continue to have the opportunity to work with such an original, remarkable and talented individual. I can't recommend her highly enough and personally consider my lessons an essential part of a professional vocal career for anyone who wants to sing correctly and safely (and) stay safe, healthy, happy and sane.
Fawn is great; reliable and on time. She is clear with instructions and expectations. She is personable and joyful. My daughter and son enjoy piano with her and I never have to bug either of them to practice! Never had that happen with other teachers. Fawn is like magic.+ Read More
Fawn has studied at the best schools in the world, with the best teachers. She has industry, teaching and performance experience. She asks for your goals and tailors the lessons to you, your voice and aspirations. No cookie-cutter lessons here. My voice has improved exponentially. Her voice exercises are spot-on. I am so blessed to have her as my vocal instructor.+ Read More
Fawn is a gem! She is always prepared and has a welcoming personality. She is very motivating and gives me a lot of things to practice and expects my homework (she calls it 'homefun') to be done. After every lesson I find myself SO EXCITED! She has helped me get ready for my auditions and I have over come many blocks I had built. I am always thrilled to work with her and look forward to continuing to improve!+ Read More
Having gone to several different vocal coaches, this one (Fawn) was and is by far the best. It makes a huge difference when a coach gets to the point, yet makes it fun! Fawn definitely helps me stay on task without it becoming overwhelming. She has made a huge difference in my vocal ability as well as the way I see myself and present myself as an artist. There were major changes in my vocal ability after just the first lesson, and now a year later, I can not believe how far I have come. I look forward to continuing learning from this incredible artist and teacher.+ Read More
Fawn has been teaching my 3 kids piano for about 2 1/2 years. They have advanced to a very high level within that time. She comes to our house once a week for about 2 hours each time. Fawn is professional, fun, positive, outgoing, funny, responsible, reliable, strict and punctual. Although she is extremely busy, she has rarely ever been late or had to reschedule. Fawn is a serious, yet fun teacher, and the kids learn a lot from her and they all adore her.+ Read More
Had fun at the Talent Share last week. Fawn had so many talented and bright kids. Adults too. It was very refreshing, inspirational and fun to see. Good job Fawn!
Fawn has been great at patiently teaching me everything I've been wanting to learn for years, from piano to songwriting to composition to technique. I highly recommend her!
Fawn is as good as it gets. The passion she has for music and singing shines through in everything she does with and for her students. Fawn's talent is so obvious, it's easy to see why her students shine. Best of all she is so approachable and down to earth. Consequently, my daughter feels immensely comfortable with her which in turn has impacted so positively on her and her love of singing.
The commitment Fawn has towards her students is second to none. I have seen first hand the immense and constant effort Fawn puts into organizing opportunities for her students to showcase their talents. Wow!
I think she is living proof of if you love what you do, you do it brilliantly.
I could not recommend Fawn highly enough.
INCREDIBLE. WORTH EVERY PENNY!
Fawn is an amazing music teacher and person. She is a teacher who can handle any student at any level, age or knowledge. She is extremely talented, professional and prepared which is why I would say she is probably the wisest and most knowledgeable vocal teacher I have ever learned from. She will fix your technique FOR SURE! Fawn is patient, kind, funny, motivating and will get you where you want to be in record time! I've reached levels I have never dreamed I could. I look forward to what the coming months hold, and how far she can take me in my operatic endeavors.+ Read More
I take piano lessons from Fawn, and my sister Sofie and I take voice lessons from her. Fawn is very friendly and patient and she's a great teacher! You can't find anyone as charismatic.
Fawn is an amazing teacher, who is very connected to her students' and engages with them on more than just a teacher-student relationship. She gives good advice and training on how to improve your voice.
Fawn has truly changed my life and my career! She gets to the point on what I need to work on and has great career and business advice. She is motivational and honest. She always challenges me to be my best!
Fawn helped me prepare for two important auditions so far, and did an amazing job! I can't wait until we work together more :)
Fawn's the perfect teacher and has a beautiful singing voice/speaking voice. She pushes you and makes sure that you get to your goals as quickly and efficiently as you can. I can say 200% that I am now confident, take control of the stage when I speak and am effective when I speak to the public. I just started working with her again on a new project, and I can't wait to see what she brings out of me this time.+ Read More
Fawn is always easy to work with, positive, honest, flexible and dependable. She is compassionate, understanding, easy to talk to, kind, patient and she helped my daughter go from being shy and having low self-esteem and no confidence to being more outgoing and having high self-esteem, building her confidence and helping her develop skills without pressure or harsh judgment. She is easy to communicate with and has exceeded our expectations time and time again. She is a pleasure and it brings tears to my eyes to see my daughter overcome her fears because of Fawn's gentle guidance.+ Read More
SINGING · ONLINE
Fawn has helped me grow my voice and musicianship. I thought I was tone deaf but she had a special technique she had created which got me on pitch almost right away. She also had the patience and confidence to help me turn that off pitch thing around and become a successful *on pitch* vocalist. If you want to sing better, don't have confidence in yourself or want to reach your goals, then you will want to work with this incredible teacher!
I am 85 years old and hired Fawn to teach me piano. It was my childhood dream. Within the 2 years, I've been taking, I have completely mastered a high concerto level of playing. Under Fawn's guidance, I have moved quickly, thoroughly and efficiently. I even performed on stage 2 different years in her Talent Share's (audiences of over 100)! Fawn has taught me classical, pop, blues, jazz and ragtime. I love playing the blues and songs from my childhood. Fawn does a great job with understanding my goals and giving me tools that fit me and help me achieve them. She is beautiful and a very patient, gentle, loving and intuitive teacher. One day I was making an excuse for my mishap plain by telling her my arthritis had been acting up all week. She laughed and said jokingly, "Bernard, don't blame your arthritis for not practicing!" She's hilarious. I am blessed to have found Fawn. The hours of joy playing the piano has brought me and my wife is priceless. Thank you, Fawn! See you next Tuesday!+ Read More
I would like to personally thank Fawn for all her patience, expertise and guidance over the last few months. I've learned a lot and even performed in front of a large audience at an outlet she helped set up. Her teaching methods are creative, successful, flexible, current and solve whatever issue any one might have going on! She tailor makes the lesson to fit what I need to accomplish. Any student would be happy (and lucky) to have her a instructor. I look forward to the coming months to see how much more I evolve and become with this incredible music coach.+ Read More
Fawn is the best at what she does. She's a true pro. I leave each lesson feeling like I can master my career. Her innovative and out side the box teaching style is unbeatable.
Fawn has taken my vocal range to a whole new level. She is VERY knowledgable and strives to get the best out of you. After only a few lessons I noticed a significant change and how much easier it was for me to hit those high notes. Not to mention she is an awesome person and fun to work with. I've had other vocal teachers in the past 4 years and would recommend Fawn over any one else, hands down!+ Read More
Super talented recording artist, songwriter and AH_MAZING music coach! We do Piano, voice and songwriting with Fawn and have learned so much! We all love her in this household! Can't praise her teaching enough! If you get to train with Fawn, count yourself one of the lucky people!+ Read More
My 15-year-old daughter works with Fawn on piano and voice. We weren't sure how on-line lessons were going to work, but it has been a great experience! Fawn is wonderful - my daughter loves her! We already saw great progress after the first lesson, and each lesson after she has just kept improving more and more. Fawn is a great music coach!+ Read More
Fawn is Very good with children. My son really listens to everything she teaches him and he is engaged with what she teaches him. He knows she expects his music theory and note spelling done each week as well as the songs and reading about whatever composer she assigns. Once he passes a certain level, she springs a test on him to find out what has stuck with him and become part of him and what has not. She is excellent. She's got an A++ personality as well. My wife and I couldn't be happier with this music teacher.+ Read More
My daughter absolutely loves working with Fawn! Fawn is encouraging and knows how to best help the students. I was apprehensive to do an online class like this, but it has been FABULOUS! I bought 5 sessions and because it has worked so well we plan on continuing! Thank you Fawn!+ Read More
Fawn is an absolute delight and a pleasure to work with. My daughter has always had a vocal gift, but her father and I wanted a professional that could work with her to properly hone in her gift. It was very convenient that we were able to do online lessons with Fawn, and it worked great for our busy schedules. Within the first few minutes, she was able to pinpoint the areas that my daughter needed to work on. Her lessons are always very upbeat and positive, and produce fantastic results. As a musician myself, I was always very pleased with the accuracy and age-appropriate delivery that Fawn continually offered. I cannot recommend her enough!+ Read More
Best Jazz vocal instructor I've ever had!
Lady Fawn ........ dang you're good !!! Having you as a music and career coach makes me do a happy dance every week! Unbelievable the leaps and bounds I have made with you at the helm. No other teacher has provided so much. I keep reaching higher than I ever thought I would. You are a hard worker who really cares. Thank you, thank you. You Rock!
And btw, Congratulations on 9 nominations for your songs and albums for the 2017 JPF Music Awards. All your hard work and nights at the studio brings you a great harvest. >>>> peace <<<< light, harmony, blessings of the heart.
Fawn is the amazing woman. She found an approach to my heart real quick. She examined my voice like a detective to find strong and weak sides, I loved that very much this makes you be convinced that your teacher really cares about you, what information she should give you and THE MOST IMPORTANT - HOW to give you that information, even in what doses. I was so afraid of our first session that she made me feel comfortable from the first minutes and encouraged me to win that race with myself. Thank you)+ Read More
I feel blessed to have found Fawn online. Very professional, charismatic, talented and fun lady. She is always positive and encouraging, moving me as quickly as I can stand, but not missing a beat. With Fawn you get a well-trained professional musician whose teaching is of the highest quality. Our entire family loves her. My kids and I do piano, my husband studies voice with her as well as speech/presentation. If you are lucky enough to be on Fawn's schedule, she is always busy and booked up. She is respectful and kind as well, and I truly appreciate how she teaches according to each of us as individuals. Thanks for all you do Fawn!+ Read More
She was able to easily locate my weak points and help create a clear path to honing my craft :)
My daughter liked her and she was nice.
If you are looking for a Vocal Coach who enhances your singing ability without changing your style, then you found her. Fawn has been the only vocal coach who my son will listen to. She is AMAZING and she knows how to get the best sound out of anyone.
Im not joking or writing this as a review, but as a testament of how good she is at her job. If your thinking you will get the same training from someone cheaper on here, I thought so too. Then I tried several others here because of the price. When I finally tried Fawn, I will never go back. She should be charging 3 times the price because that is how much she helped my son.
She will always be our voice teacher!
3 Words: Incredible, Incredible, Incredible! I have had several singing coaches through the years that were not quite what I was looking for. Fawn was that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow that I was looking for. She is encouraging, professional, and knows exactly how to help her student improve and help them move in the right direction. She is worth every minute and every penny. Highly recommended!+ Read More
Fawn is such a delight to work with! She's always going beyond the lesson to see how she can help empower you take on your goals head on no matter what area of life. I'm so glad to have found such a genuine person in Hollywood & an amazing teacher to guide me in this industry.+ Read More
Truly, Fawn is an amazing woman. Honest but in that natural incessant charm that not only caters to the student’s learning but keeps the student from intense levels of frustration or disappointment with the truth of what she hears and perceives in your presented vocals. Always she is on time for every voice and or singing appointment while this lady is impressively organized. Constantly in tune with her student revealing an intuitive and gracious care to help the learner absorb information to carry home or take to the stage.
Fawn extends her insight with one’s singing lessons in a consistent persuasive manner. Encouraging in a way that she tells you exactly what needs to be addressed with voice, body, expression (presentation) as time evolves with her teaching methods. The lessons Fawn also tailors in an evolving fashion. In the beginning, she calibrates upon first meeting exactly what one’s goals are, where one wants to go, or where one needs to be with vocals for an upcoming rehearsal or theatre production. With each lesson she listens deeply and continually corrects the gamut of voice wrongs to rights. Steadily guiding my voice to the correct breathing method. Persistently raising my flat monotonous sound to a more emotional rounded way of presenting my voice through songs and speech. On and on as time progresses she notes, corrects, addresses and we readily readjust. My confidence has risen and continues to under Fawn’s education and experience as her depth and breadth in the music industry is voluminous.
Undoubtedly, her knowledge is extensive and an all encompassing expertise. Asking her questions provided the greatest joy as this lady has the answer and guides one to look into links, websites, voice references for that extra homework, practice, or interest for the curious aspiring student that provide the perfect example for what is needed in mastery to take one’s voice to another level after her instruction. Over the course of time with her my goals have changed, altered, tiered and with that she has been an incredibly patient instructor. I love every musical second of my time with Fawn and not only treasure her words but the wisdom of her most sensitive voice and the surety of her ears.
P.S. This lady has a fabulous sense of humor that permeates not only her singing soul but the very essence of each inspiring smile. Thank you so very much, Fawn.
I adore you. You are certainly...the very best.
Warmest hugs and kisses,
Fawn is an amazing teacher and she is extremely passionate about helping others achieve their goals. Fawn has been helping my 9yr old daughter to sing correctly, she has an amazing ear and knows exactly how to correct the problem. I'm so happy we selected her as my daughters singing coach! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Fawn!!!+ Read More
Fawn is amazing!!! My voice has improved a lot in a short time and she has corrected some bad habits I had developed. She has a ton of experience and incredible teaching techniques. She is very professional and up to date on all of the best singing excercises. I can't recommend her enough and very glad I chose her. Thanks Fawn+ Read More
Fawn is an excellent teacher and helped me to write my first song. She's very insightful when it comes to musical composition and even covering another song.
Fawn is a great vocal instructor. She worked with my young daughter who wants to sing opera. A lot was accomplished in one lesson. I definitely recommend Fawn for anyone that wants good quality vocal instruction.
Fawn is a fantastic voice coach and singing instructor. She genuinely loves and cares about her students, her work, and teaching. She taught me tricks and tips that drastically changed and strengthened my voice for the better just within the first lesson. And without any pressure. She always makes each lesson fun and meaningful. We always discuss new goals (which Fawn is very easy to talk to) and then Fawn tailors a lesson plan to help me quickly reach them. She is extremely flexible about scheduling and also takes extra time to work on particular issues. And what's nice is that her prices are absolutely affordable (and no where near the same ball park as other vocal coaches with her amount of experience).+ Read More
Fawn is so gifted and an amazing teacher. My daughter also enjoyed lessons and looked forward to them!
Fawn was a great instructor for me to learn piano. I do music production, and I wanted to learn how to play piano. Fawn was very patient with me, and able to really help me out in getting started in playing. I would recommend her to anyone looking to sharpen their piano skills.+ Read More
Fawn taught my daughter how to play piano and read sheet music within the first 3 months. She is an awesome teacher and were so happy that we able to have her teach our daughter how to play piano and learn to enjoy music. Shes great with kids, and beginners, very patient and she really knows what shes doing. I strongly recommend trying her first before going elsewhere, because after your first lesson you wont want to go anywhere else.+ Read More
Fawn is an excellent teacher. Her skills and talent are obvious. My son was able to advance in piano and reading music in a remarkably short amount of time. Matter of fact, he is now the Drum Major at his High School Marching Band in 11th grade! She is patient and talented. Her approach was pleasant but always focused. Even when my son was not "into it" Fawn was able to bring out his talent.
When she came to our house, she was always a joy to have.
As a parent, my favorite experience with Fawn was on the rare occasion, when she would accept our family dinner invitation, I got to spend quality time with her and learn how truly special she is.
Fawn is honestly the best vocal coach I've ever had. She's not only sweet but she truly wants her students to succeed. If you have any problems or need help she will always clarify and make sure to help you in any way possible. I've grown a lot from having Fawn as my teacher and I'm super glad I picked her as my vocal coach :)
I look forward to all my classes and never want the sessions to end!
My daughter had thoroughly enjoyed her singing lessons with Fawn. She looks forward to seeing Fawn every week and is benefitting immensely from the instruction she receives from Fawn. I highly recommend her as a teacher.
Fawn is an amazing vocal coach. I took a few lessons prior to recording a song, and wanted to deal with an issue with my voice. Fawn gave me some advice and exercises that helped in 3 lessons more that a whole year elsewhere. She is anal, militant and gets results!! And has a wonderful sense of humor, lol.
Love her and would recommend her to anyone who is serious about improving.
Fawn is an amazing teacher! I have had many vocal coaches over the years but never has one of them helped me as much as Fawn has in the past 3 lessons! She really focuses on you as an individual and you can tell that she wants the best for you. My voice has improved so much already and I can't wait to see how my progress keeps on growing. I would recommend her to anybody, she is great!!+ Read More
Fawn started teaching my 7-year-old daughter, Sidney, one year ago. Sidney had no prior experience with music but was always interested in piano. I am so glad a friend referred Fawn to me! Not only has she demonstrated an incredible amount of patience with my girl but also has inspired her to explore the instrument further. She definitely is a 5-star teacher!+ Read More
We have worked with Fawn for more than three years now and have had such a great experience. Our daughter, Ruby, is now 10 and loves her time with Fawn and actually looks forward to her lessons. Fawn tailors the lessons in a way that keeps the experience interesting and enjoyable - at the same time she keeps on top of music theory and historical content that really fills out the experience and deepens Ruby's understanding and appreciation. Thank you, Fawn!+ Read More
Love Fawn! She is very encouraging and keeps my progress steady. Easy going and never critical . Also flexible with my schedule. Highly recommend.
I have learned more and have had more improvement with my singing with this instructor! She really helped me learn how to strengthen my voice and be able to dissect a song. I definitely recommend her for anyone who wants singing lessons. This was within a short time, that I saw these results. She knows how to get to the point and it be fun. I noticed a drastic change! Thanks so much!!!+ Read More
It really is more (Voice Acting) Script interpretation, and Diction; how to pronounce words in a script or paragraph, correctly. Fawn didn't waste any time, I was concerned about my Skype audio, no problem, and after a little wrangling, I figured out how to send her an audio file, and script I wanted her to look over.
She made notes, gave me suggestions, made comments on what I sent her, I'll do my home work; because I want to improve,and we'll do it again next week; same time time, same station... Sorry couldn't help that! She's the kind of coach I need right now!
Absolutely amazing.... Extremely accommodating, especially for first timers!
I have never had online lessons before, and I was really worried that it wasn't going to work. However, Fawn exceeding my expectations. She made me feel so comfortable, which made it that much easier to be myself.
At the age of six, I started taking lessons. I ended up staying with that vocal coach until the age of 21, when she told me that I needed to find a more advanced vocal coach. I found someone who was really good, but I didn't feel that I was going anywhere with her. After my 1st lesson with Fawn, I said to myself, "Bingo! Someone who knows her stuff, knows what I need to do to be successful and will be there to help me do so." Thank you Fawn!! :)
I couldn't be happier with my choice. It's hasn't even been 24 hours, and I'm already looking forward to our next lesson. Thank you Fawn!! :)
Ms. Fawn not only has a very good technical skills on voice but also have a very good personality that can ignite and motivate the kids to learn based on the kid's personalities.
My daughter has a very good experience in Ms. Fawn class. Ms. Fawn always can point precisely what wrong and what is the right way to sing in each class. Ms. Fawn works around with my daughter's personality and make my daughter to learn in a way she really enjoy to learn. Ms. Fawn also helps my daughter to find a way that make her focus better when singging.
Ms. Fawn is a great teacher, I am glad that I found her in take lesson website. Both me and my daughter have a great experience with her.
Fawn is a wonderful teacher! I was in the process of prepping for acting conservatories, some schools require the students to sing; Fawn helped this extremely inexperienced singer sound pretty good and confident for her auditions. Fawn is extremely professional and light hearted, she'll never make you feel uncomfortable about your performance. Fawn is encouraging and very talented, I could hear improvement within my performance by my third lesson. You'll never feel stuck when rehearsing with her and she's full of suggestions. I would recommend Fawn to anyone wanting to take singing lessons!+ Read More
Fawn is an incredible teacher she made me feel very comfortable. She's very sweet and knowledgeable. She is very caring and passionate about what she does. She is an amazing women who is very helpful. My experience with Fawn was incredible. I highly recommend taking her!+ Read More
Fawn is an incredibly kind person and wonderful teacher. I immediately felt comfortable with her and learned more in 3 lessons than I have with any other vocal coach I've had in the past. She's so encouraging, really listens to what you have to say and has a great ear for knowing what you need to work on and develop. I think what sets her apart from other teachers is her generosity and vibrant spirit. It really is contagious.+ Read More
Fawn is an amazing teacher. I've been taking songwriting classes from her and I learn something new every lesson. She's very sweet, talented, encouraging, and understanding. I was nervous to take lessons online at first, as I've never done it before, then was unsure who I should take from because I didn't want to get someone who was terrible. I got really lucky though, I highly recommend her. She's absolutely fantastic.+ Read More
Fawn is a very sweet and encouraging person! I am a beginner who was very shy when it came to singing in front of people, but after taking lessons with fawn over Skype I have never felt more confident and I have definitely noticed a huge improvement in my voice. Fawn also has the experience and knowledge on how to get your name out there and turn your passion into a career. Not only is she very smart and professional, but she is friendly, positive, and has an extremely big heart. Fawn wants to see her students succeed and has the ability to help them do so.+ Read More
Fawn teaches my daughter Rachel piano and is a wonderfully patient and engaging teacher. She is very good a moving at the pace of the student. Fawn knows how to keep Rachel excited about learning and we are thrilled to see the progress she has made in the three years that Fawn has been teaching her.+ Read More
Very nice teacher, always a positive attitude, she's always willing to help you improve. I've had 3 lessons so far and she's been helping me a lot with many vocal exercises :)!
Best instructor ever
I had a few lessons with her. I noticed improvement when I sing. Fawn is dedicated. She works on areas that may effect my singing. She gets to the core of it. I enjoy taking lessons with her.
With Fawn's great guidance, in a matter of months I sound like a singer! Everyday I hear myself, it feels amazing to see how great I sound and all this in less than a year! I love singing now!! :DD
Is there anything else to say!?
I was not able to make my camera work, but yes, the teacher was there waiting for me. I was sorry I coudn't´t make my equipment work.
Fawn was great! She was pleasant and very helpful to from my very first lesson on Helpouts.
The best of the best!
All lessons take place in a comfortable environment where all of the students personal needs in terms of training get worked on. Fawn is extremely professional and knowledgable about vocal training.
This was my first singing lesson and Fawn touch on so many things that will help me get better. She provided me with videos and exercises to work on for our next lesson! Thanks again
Fawn was really helpful in providing great tips and pointers to begin singing. Highly recommend her lessons.
Fawn was awesome! very informative, gave me good exercises and excellent constructive criticism. I would recommend her for anyone from the beginner level, to advanced!
Fawn was just great she is soooo sweet and nice and just helpful she is the best there is. :) I had a wonderful time
Fawn was amazing! Not only was she super helpful but also very encouraging and made me feel very comfortable. I highly recommend her!
Wow! What a cool thing this is. FAWN helped me out a lot with breathing and also with working on bridging my chest voice and my head voice. She gave me some great exercises and was able to watch me through the internet to make sure I was doing them properly. This is really awesome. She's really on top of it and definitely knows this voice teaching down pat. Superior!
Fawn gave me an excellent singing lesson. It was truly a pleasure. She was fun and her good spirits rubbed off on me. She guided me through several very useful exercises to improve my singing abilities. I'll definitely schedule another lesson with her.
I have to admit, going into this I was a little skeptical that I would learn anything valuable, but this was an amazing experience. Even after only one 30-minute session, I learned a lot about my vocal range and some great breathing and vocal exercises to keep improving. I would highly recommend this Helpout and the entire online lesson experience in general!
It was such a great experience I just had with Fawn. Throughout the entire session she was making me believe in myself, she's an angel from LA to me. It's hard to find a person with a sweet spirit sacrificing their time for free to a stranger, though she never treated me like one. I felt safe and at home with her. Thank you Fawn, thank you Google.
From the day one she made a big diference in my ability to improve vocal perfomance. She doesn't waste time and knows what I need.
From the day one she made a big diference in my ability to improve vocal perfomance. She doesn't waste time and knows what I need. She is a great teacher!
So incredibly sweet, talented, and such an amazing teacher! From the moment I met fawn we immediately connected. She genuinely cares and makes you feel so comfortable, so opening up to her when it came to writing songs was incredibly easy and natural. Very giving with her time and she will help you tackle any problems you're having in order to achieve your goals.
I never knew I could really, REALLY sing.
I never really considered myself a singer, and resolved to be an actor who "can sing a little bit". I started to study voice only to broaden that horizon however far it would go, but I wasn't expecting much. Only to, perhaps, stop being nervous or to stop seizing up at the idea of singing in front of people. But...
Fawn doesn't mess around. She likes to move fast, and so do I.
There is no ego in working with her. She's supportive, encouraging, and deftly knowledgable. Her ability to troubleshoot is a big part of how quickly my voice is improving. She fixed my breathing in the FIRST lesson, by the third lesson we started working on pitch (my biggest shortcoming), and while I can't say I'm there yet, I am already lightyears from where I was two months ago.
She eliminates a lot of the mystery that surrounds singing, stuff I was never quite sure about despite the fact that I had a voice teacher for three years prior to moving to Los Angeles. IE: Where should I feel the resonance? Where should I NOT feel the resonance? What direction should the energy go? Etc..
It's only been a short while, but I believe I'm on my way to actually calling myself a confident, skilled singer.
immediate changes because of her vocal inventions
I've been working with Fawn for 8 months now. When I first started working with her, I was continually off pitch, as in almost tone deaf but she was able to COMPLETELY change that by my 3rd lesson. Now I know exactly how to be on pitch all the time now with her creative vocal inventions & vocal exercisesâ¦itâs been one grand accomplishment every lesson, ever since. :)
The speed & proficiency that she works at amazes me & by this I mean, her techniques work IMMEDIATELY & she works extraordinarily FAST! I have made huge progress that my friends, family & choir teacher have all told me that they canât even believe it because they actually thought I would never be able to sing & sound good & one of the things I noticed that made such a difference for me was that Fawn always treats me as if Iâm already where I want to be & I think this belief in me rubbed off. She always gives me lots of encouragement & tells me to think positive & focus on how far I have come & to build on that. She gives me a lot of homefun (as she calls it) to do, which has made me a better singer & I donât have breaks in my voice any more. Iâm becoming the best singer that I can be.
Wonderful person and teacher
Iâm an actor who has to sing in 1-2 episodes of a new show I'm in, so I started taking voice with fawn because she came highly recommended by another actor I work with. I totally think she is great and I recommend her to any one who wants to improve their speaking or singing voice or become more confident in their performances. She also helps me with my script preparation and think she is a wonderful person and teacher.
Best vocal coach EVER!
Best vocal coach EVER and I canât say enough positive things about her! My voice rocks because of her insights, training and expertise and if I could give her 100 stars instead of 5 I would.
The Best At Her Craft--Sheâs Awesome!!!!
Fawn is goose bumps kind of beautiful-as beautiful as her HUGE heart! She is giving of her time, talent and training, always willing to help any one in need.
She is also a great singer and song writer, very creative and gifted woman who is the best at her craft. She has helped me countless times when I became stuck in my abilities. Sheâs Awesome!!!!
Absolutely amazing teacher!! FIVE STARS!!!
Absolutely amazing teacher!! Learned sooooo many new techniques within such a short amount of time!!! Really patient and down to earth woman too! FIVE STARS!!!
Fawnâs teaching is amazing
Fawnâs teaching is amazing, from the day one I have learnt so much, I knew she was the good and best teacher for me, I love it.
Quite Simply The Best.
With all of the music teachers in LA and the world, it is difficult to choose the best. With Fawn, I believe 100% that I have found the best. She is well educated, well rounded and versed in all the musical styles, up on the latest musical trends, yet knows the composers, songwriters and vocalists of yesteryears. She is passionate, fun, compassionate, patient, loving, kind and has a college degree from the 2 top music schools in the world. She has a thorough understanding of music theory, performance, voice, piano and the many ins and outs of the music industry. She is able to teach her students the theory behind the songs they are learning to play, sing, write and record. She is great at sharing the musical journey with her students, guiding them with honesty, tender care and knowledge. My daughter has grown leaps and bounds with Fawn and absolutely loves her. Sheâs helped change her voice into her authentic voice, taught her how to get over stage fright, how to turn her poems into song lyrics and how to produce her own vocals in the recording studio. She is quite simply, the best.
first rate vocal coach, second to none.
Fawn does a great job of explaining how to do everything you need to know to sing at your highest level.
Sheâs shown me to breathe correctly and how to make it work the best. She is a great coach for voice students of all ages.
I'm both a teacher and a student and her breathing techniques, vocal exercises and innovative ways of explaining and displaying proper vocal placement are second to none.
Her expertise has helped me become a better singer than I have ever been in my life.
Fawn is attentive, patient, timely, efficient, proficient and a fantastic teacher
Fawn is great! She is attentive, patient, timely, efficient, proficient and most importantly a fantastic teacher. As an adult learner she has always tailored her lessons to me in a non-stressful, easy, relaxed manner with a mind to achieving my goals, she weaves her magic and somehow learning to read music and music theory are fun!! I am playing pieces I never dreamed I would master in a relatively sort amount of time.
I highly recommend her.
Best teacher of all
Our daughter has been taking piano lessons from Fawn for 3 years now. We are so amazed how patient she always is with her, and how far our girl has come. She has far surpassed her classmates who started at the same time with other teachers. We couldnât be happier to have chosen Fawn. We are impressed with how Fawn changes and grows along with our daughter. She began when she was 5 years old and now she is 8, reading and playing high level classical pieces. As a piano player myself, I've seen and gone through many different teachers, which is why I am confident to say that Fawn is definitely the best teacher of all and we are so lucky to have her!
Fawn is an investment in my future, money spent well
Fawn takes you on an unexpected fun, whirlwind of learning when you take lessons with her. Canât read the notes? No problem, sheâs got you. Vocal problems? Oh yeah, she fixes that too. Trouble in the studio? Voice off pitch? Need mic technique? Weak on piano? Sight singing? Canât play the blues? Canât play classical? Need to learn how to write a song? Canât find a hook for your song? Donât worry, Fawn to the rescue! Seriously, is there nothing this woman canât do? I soak up her wisdom like a sponge. Iâm currently working in the studio with her on my debut album and we are half-way finished. It is sounding ah-may-zing! I am learning so much from this studio wiz. Having her in my life the past 3 years has been the right choice and an investment in my future. Hereâs to another successful year with Fawn on my team.
Fawn is a refreshing change and one of the best instructors we have ever known
After going through a barrage of music instructors, Fawn was a refreshing change. Our family has been taking piano, voice, performance and songwriting lessons from Fawn for 3 years now. My husband, myself and our son and daughter are her students and we all adore her. She has a lovely spirit and kind heart. She pushes us each in our own individual ways to be the best we can each be, and she always checks in to see how we are doing on a personal level too. She is such a positive person, her energy could light up an entire city. I donât know any one that works harder. I think hearing her songs on the radio, seeing her perform and work hard at her own successful music career, as well as work hard at helping her students achieve their best is one of the things that motivates me to work harder. Fawnâs attitude is, âanything is possible if you believeâ. Not only do we believe, but we believe in her. She is the best candidate for the job and this household deeply appreciates her.
she is very sweet and knows your stuff!
she is very sweet and knows your stuff! she has gotten me into a music video with the twins. helping me to network. helping me rock all of mexico. getting me great photographers
Wonderful Voice Teacher: Understanding and Confidence Booster
I grew up taking voice lessons and have a musical background but put it aside after high school and I didn't think I could pursue a career as an artist.
After taking a couple lessons with Fawn, I feel revived. She instantly believed in me and made a plan of action to set my dream in motion. After each lesson, I feel better and see improvement in my voice and confidence. All thanks to Fawn! Looking forward to many more lessons.
Fawn is original, passionate and a musical genius who makes learning fun
Fawnâs way of teaching is quite original, passionate and always to the point. She can make the most insecure person get out of their own way and become more secure. Working with her, I get a glimpse of genius in action. She really is a musical genius and I have been learning an incredible amount from her. My songs keep getting better under her training and guidance and I finally got a placement in a sitcom from her re-write. I look forward to watching my own abilities continue to grow and become stronger.
Fawn is a caring, sweet, and compassionate voice teacher. She has pushed me out of my comfort zone, stretched me, and I feel like I have improved a lot in the tone and freedom of my voice. Even my sister said my singing sounds more relaxed. Fawn has honed in on the deficits that I need to work on but is also encouraging in a safe, comfortable, and laid back environment. She is brutally honest which I love, yet in a constructive way. I highly recommend her as a voice teacher
Truly incredible teacher!
I love her. She is so sweet, she is amazing. I canât believe how much I have improved on my songwriting, voice and playing and I wish I had found her sooner. I would tell all my friends and any one interested in piano, voice, music theory, songwriting or anything having to do with music, to take lessons with her. She is a miracle worker. Incredible and gracious, canât say enough good things about Fawn!
I learned more in 30 MInutes from Fawn then I did in years with other instructors
I learned more in 30 minutes with a vocal lesson than I've learned in years of destructive music and voice lessons from teachers all over the US. She's got a fantastic ear and is able to pinpoint problems so quickly. She's also no-nonsense, but is also very encouraging and inspiring. She's very talented at getting the best out of new people and seasoned performers alike. Highest recommendation. After her lessons, I had a huge gig at the Orange County Fair with Roger Daltry headlining! He teaching gave me confidence and I sounded the best yet, singing live. I look forward to learning more from her. Penelope J.
The Best There Is!!!!!!!!!

â¢She is passionate about my growth.
â¢She customizes her teaching strategies to make my learning experience more efficient and enjoyable.
â¢She does exceptionally well in communicating the style and emotion in every played piece.
â¢She teaches me to read, write and play piano synonymously.

â¢She keeps me interested and encourages creativity.

Truly incredible teacher!
I love her. She is so sweet, she is amazing I would tell all my friends interested in piano, voice, music theory, songwriting or anything having to do with music, to take lessons with her. I canât believe how much I have improved on my songwriting, voice and playing. I wish I had found her sooner. She's a miracle worker. Incredible and gracious, canât say enough good things about Fawn!
She Knows What She's Doing. A Very Good Instructor.
Fawn really knows what she's doing. With a hit song under her belt, songs in films, tv shows and all the appearances/live shows she does, you'd think she would be pretentious snob. She is completely down to earth and eager to share her experiences and career with every one she teaches. One of the things that impressed me about her is the fact that she IS so busy, yet finds time for text messages/phone calls when I've had questions about voice, piano, music contracts, songwriting etc. She has helped undo damage to my vocal chords from a previous teacher and improved my range, taught me proper breathing and vocal technique, and given me a huge boost of confidence. Because of her being a stickler for details, her corrections have made my vocal chords stronger than ever! I no longer get hoarse from singing. She has even showcased me at some of the red carpet events she's at, to help get my face and career out there. She is the real deal. She doesn't waste time and is very result oriented and I appreciate that and so many other things about her. I've had teachers stretch lessons out, making more money, but this instructor clearly teaches because she wants to help people and for the love of it, not for the money aspect. Learning from her and being in her presence is a blessing, she's a gift to all of us who study with her. If you don't need warm and fuzzies, that's cool. Just know the bottom line: She gets you where you've gotta be. Respect!
One of the best music teachers I've ever had
For two decades, I've learned I was singing wrong, at the advice of other vocal teachers. Fawn identified my issue within moments, shocking me to my core. But you know what? Hitting notes is nowhere near the struggle it once was. I'm so much more confident in so many areas now. Her ear is impeccable. I so look forward to each of our lessons now. I am learning at such an incredible pace. The best part is it's developing how I need to go, and I'm not begin forced into some other person's idea. It's been such a growth. I wish I'd had this twenty years ago.
Her studio is an actual recording studio, which is really inspiring to be inside. There's a huge digital piano and a big Mackie board and a new Mac with the new Logic, which she uses to record and play back my voice. That's so convenient. It's a perfect musical environment.
She's always shown up on time for our lessons, and ended promptly. She's REALLY busy and in demand, so there's always someone right before and after me. I've spoken to them, and everyone's always smiling.
She's also worked with me when I needed to reschedule a lesson, which is cool of her. She didn't have to do that, but shuffled things around for me before an important gig so I could practice with her before.
I couldn't be happier!
Money well spent. Fawn is the very BEST!
Fawn is great. I have never liked piano classes but she makes it fun, interesting and I have learned an incredible amount in a short period of time with out feeling overwhelmed. She has a great personality, gets to the point, is loving, loves animals and children, and she always asks how my week was and truly cares about me as a person, not just a student. She is the best music coach ever, she even got me to write songs on the piano as an emotional outlet. It has done wonders for me. Study with her and won't regret it! Thank you Fawn!!!
Dedicated and kind teacher who gets results
Fawn was a great teacher to get my children introduced to piano. She was very patient and kind and worked to keep the lessons interesting at the same time advancing their skills at every lesson.
Excellent, exciting teacher my son loves
We love Fawn. She took my perfectionist, baseball loving boys boy and turned him into a composure, songwriter and potential concert pianist. Fawn is eccentric, talented, patient and a true professional. I thank Fawn for helping my son discover his love of the piano and for doing it in a way that was authentic to his learning style. She made it fun.
She is very good with people and is a really amazing person.
I began taking lessons with Fawn on March,2013. She helped me with pitch, delivery and phrasing. She is really wonderful! Not only is she an amazing singer, she is very good with people and is a really amazing person. She is extremely caring and gentle and puts passion into everything she does. I have made a lot of progress and am much more confident! I encourage you to contact her and try a lesson to see if it is a good fit for you.
Well rounded teacher
Fawn is very engaging as a teacher. She has a wide range of abilities, that range from piano, to singing, to songwriting.
As a music producer i was looking to brush up on my songwriting and piano. Her unique ability to interchange all of the above skills has been invaluable.
I definitely recommend Fawn as a teacher .
Patient, knowledgable, amazing.
After just two lessons Fawn has done an amazing job! I have improved, felt encouraged, and had a great time learning. I will absolutely continue to work with her.
Enormous Student base an affirmation of an Enormously Successful Teacher
Fawn is a warrior for justice. She rights all the wrongs of other teachers bad coaching. She turned my sons bad piano habits around in just 2 lessons! My daughter's bad vocal habits changed after the first lesson! I have never seen anything like it. We are grateful to have found her. I now have confidence that my children are in the best hands possible. I love the energy she puts into her recitals and the enormous student base she has is an affirmation that she is doing great things in California!
She gave my 89 year old mother her voice back
When I contacted Fawn, she had come highly recommended by a popular piano store in Burbank. I had a problem with my 89 year old mother who had suffered a stroke and had lost her voice. After months of rehabilitation, she was able to speak again, but her singing voice kept cutting in and out and she was frustrated. Now confined to a wheel chair, her hope had been completely dashed when she could no longer sing, as singing was the only thing she knew she was good at. I have to say that with in 1, yes 1 voice lesson, Fawn had my mother singing again and the problem solved! She is a miracle worker with a heart of gold. I treasure the video footage she took of my mom singing, and her ability to inspire and encourage my precious mother to sing again. She gave my mother her voice back and more importantly, her hope. She is a rare find.
An inspirational and positive teacher
I have known Fawn since I was 6 years old. She came in replacing my other piano teacher who was very mean. I was Fawn her until age 19. She had me playing high level classical concerto pieces with in 4 years, with me being able to read and do them on my own. My family and I adore her. She is a wonderful, compassionate and inspiring person. She not only taught me piano, but songwriting on guitar and piano and gave me voice lessons-I even went into her recording studio and recorded the songs I wrote, that was a lot of fun! She also gave my father voice lessons. We all enjoyed her and considered her part of our family and still do, even though none of us take lessons any more. I have started teaching piano privately while going through college. Fawn taught me how to do that and how to be a good teacher. I admire her very much. She was part of my Bat Mitzvah and one of the people I chose to light a candle. I was thrilled when she was on the Billboard charts with Lady Gaga and Mariah Carey. She works harder than any one I know.
Today, I enjoy piano, voice and songwriting because of this wonderful person. She is so easy to talk to, always positive and is very thorough with music theory, sight reading and playing. She, herself has one of the most heartfelt touches on the piano that I have ever heard. I HIGHLY recommend her as a music coach. You will never regret taking lessons with Fawn.
Fawn Knows What She Is Doing
Fawn knows what she is doing. WIth a hit song under her belt, songs in film and television AND all the TV appearances and live shows she does, you would think she would be snobby or pretentious. Not this one! She is completely down to earth and eager to share her experience and her career with every one she teaches. One of things that impresses me about Fawn is the fact that she IS so busy, yet finds time for text messages and phone calls when I have a question about voice or piano. She has helped undo damage to my vocal chords from a previous teacher and she has improved my range, taught me correct breathing and given me a boost of confidence. Because of her correct teaching, my vocal chords are stronger than ever! She has even showcased me at some red carpet events to help my career. She is the real deal. She doesn't waste people's time and gets results very quickly. I appreciate that about her. I have had other teachers stretch things out to make more money. Fawn clearly does this for the love of it, not for the money. If you are lucky enough to be in this woman's presence, you are blessed. She is a true gift to every one who meets her, particularly her students.
I have learned so much from Fawn in the short time I have been taking lessons from her. My voice and confidance in my singing has gone up tremendously. I really appreciate her warmth and encouragment as well. I would highly recommend her. Mary
The moment I met Fawn I knew she was the right teacher for me. She recognized how to instuct me within minutes of meeting me. I feel very comfortable with Fawn and am amazed on my progress in one month. Fawn constintely reminds me that I am on a journey and through practice I can accomplish anything! No matter how many mis-takes it takes. Thank you Fawn
Fawn is very patient and knowledgeable, she has used methods that I have never seen in all my years of taking voice lessons. Her system works very quickly and I love every lesson..Thanks Fawn!
she helped me with everything I needed.taught me a lot in a short amount of time. She figures out what your needs are And gets straight to it.she was a great teacher!
Our 5-year old son is making great progress and loves working with Fawn.
Beautiful person on the inside and outside!!! I love learning with Fawn!!! She's a wonderful teacher who has tremendous patience and grace!!!
