Felice is a singer, songwriter, vocal producer, vocal coach and recording engineer and has been working in the music industry in these roles for the past 10 years. After studying classical and jazz voice and earning an Associates Degree in Commercial Music with a focus on Audio Engineering at American River College, she worked as an engineer at the world-renowned Banff Centre in Canada and the world-class Studio At The Palms in Las Vegas, Nevada. While working at The Palms, Felice was so inspired by all of the amazing talent that came through those doors every day including the likes of Michael Jackson, Pink, Timbaland, Maroon 5, Prince, Celine Dion and many more legends in music.

Since moving to Los Angeles, she has worked in the studio with such artists as Nick Cannon, Ashanti, B2K, Colleen Fitzpatrick (Vitamin C), Poet NameLife (Black Eyed Peas producer and songwriter), Cody Longo (star of “Hollywood Heights”) and Paige Thomas (finalist from X-Factor) and many more. Felice has had the honor of winning the Producer's Choice Award for Recording Artist of the Year at the 21st Los Angeles Music Awards in 2011. Over the past couple of years she has been in demand to perform on the festival circuit at the Burbank International Film Festival, ITSA Film Festival and the Palm Springs Pride Festival, as well as special events like the Los Angeles VH1 Save The Music Foundation Young Benefactors Benefit. She performs regularly at some of the most iconic venues in Los Angeles including House of Blues, The Viper Room, Whisky A Go-Go and The Mint, to name a few. She also keeps a busy schedule in the studio writing with the top writers and producers in the industry and has placed music and lent her vocals to songs on such networks as MTV, Disney, You Tube and HGTV. Her work as a songwriter has received over 100 million You Tube views.

In addition to her extensive knowledge and skill in the recording studio, Felice is a skilled vocal coach and classically trained vocalist. She has trained under some of the best vocal coaches in the industry including Dr. Arthur Lapierre (former faculty at Berklee College of Music); Jeffrey Skouson (works with the likes of Panic! At the Disco); Dave Stroud (creator of VocalizeU, former Chief Executive Officer of Speech Level Singing International and has worked with Justin Timberlake, Adam Lambert and Jordin Sparks to name a few); as well as Seth Riggs (founder of Speech Level Singing method).

Felice released her new EP, "Prologue" this past October 2016. Currently, she is working on her next EP with producer Sleep Deez of Black Eyed Peas fame, set to release in early 2018.

Working in so many different facets of the music industry has given Felice a broad understanding of what it takes to be a successful artist. As an artist herself, she has learned that the more knowledge you have about working in the recording studio, music business and crafting you’re sound and voice, the more in demand and successful you will be.

Felice is absolutely amazing! I have always been hesitant about the idea of taking voice lessons because of how nervous I get when having to sing in front of others. Felice has been able to calm my nerves and boost my confidence in my singing abilities. Plus she is very patient with me and puts up with all my quirkiness! :) I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Felice has been great with my son, Josh. After just 4 lessons, we have seen such improvement! It's not easy to find someone that a 15 year old teenager is comfortable with! Thank you so much Felice. We are looking forward to seeing where this all takes him!

Felice was amazing. I was extremely nervous of singing in front of someone. She made me feel comfortable. She's very confident in her knowledge of vocal training and I highly recommend hiring her.

I've never taken any voice lessons before and she really makes me feel comfortable with my craft. She knows how to guide you and knows exactly what you need to work on. You can tell she is also really talented and has a lot of musical knowledge and experience. She never criticises but always advises and guides you in a step-by-step manner to get you to your goals! I would recommend her 10/10. :)

For years I've been lead singer in a rock cover band. I never had vocal training and routinely blew my voice out all the time. Working with Felice has been a revelation to me. After just a few lessons I’m finally beginning to understand what I’ve been doing wrong and how to correct it. She’s patient, supportive, funny, and really knows her stuff. I highly recommend her if you’re looking for a voice teacher.

Felice show so much patience with me as a student. She is very approachable and very supportive no matter that I have never had a lesson in my life. She is very aware of who her student is in regards to skill level. She makes the lessons very simple in order for a student (at least for me) to follow along. I could not think of anyone else I would take lessons from and if I return in the near future I will be sure and request her as an instructor.
Thank you,
Hazel

I truly love Felice’s energy. She immediately made me feel comfortable the second I met her. I’m very insecure about singing in front of people and Felice made those insecurities vanish. She really focused on what I needed to do to rebuild my voice that I have lost (which I am still in process of training). She helped me target the areas I was having most trouble with, taught me techniques, and gave me honest opinions and really listened to me when I sang. I’ll definitely continue seeing her. If you are looking for a singing teacher I highly recommend her.

Super Helpful!

I am always hesitant to take lessons from anyone. I have had bad experiences in the past where I leave a session feeling defeated because the teacher was impatient. I must say, after leaving my first lesson with Felice, I felt excited about the next!

Wonderful experience

I can't say enough good things about Felice. My son goes to her for vocal lessons, and I have noticed he is more confident since she has been teaching him. She is professional, has a great home studio, and most of all, creates a fun experience for my son. I highly recommend her.

Great teacher for a first time singer!

I had never taken vocal lessons before working with Felice and she made me feel comfortable immediately. After a few weeks of working with her, I felt more confident and my voice already began to feel more flexible. I'm very happy with her instruction and look forward to more lessons!

Helped Me Get Over My Stage Fright

I always loved to sing, but I had a terrible fear of performing in front of others. Felice helped me build my self-confidence. After working with her for a few months, she helped me prepare to perform at an open mic. She even showed up for my performance! I still get nervous to perform, but I feel like Felice helped me gain the tools to face my fears and sing in front of others.

Vocals/Audio/Performance

Felize is amazing as an instructor. She is patient and friendly. Her knowledge is excellent in audio engineering and as a vocal coach. Felize is well versed in all aspects as a performer and can translate that expertise to her students in a learning environment. She has helped me tremendously with my overall musical knowledge. I highly recommend Felize without reservation.
