Every student is a unique person who deserves a lesson customized to their individual needs. Each of my students prospers in an atmosphere of patience and encouragement. While the lessons are fun and enjoyable, the serious student will be supported in the development of skills leading to a rewarding career. And the more casual students will grow in an appreciation of music that will always enrich their lives.

I begin each voice lesson with a warm-up to prepare the student for their session. Next, we do a series of exercises specially designed to help each individual develop their skill in a way that best fits them. We then work on a piece of their choice for the remainder of the lesson, perfecting their technique and helping them become performance ready. I teach with patience and fun because I feel that this is the key to achieving goals and inspiring a good habit of practice.

Materials needed:
~I recommend that my students keep a practice journal to record their daily practice sessions.
~If possible, please bring a recording device (most cellphones have them) so you can record your lessons. It is a HUGE help to be able to listen back on your lessons and to use them in your daily practice!
~I highly recommend and sometimes require buying sheet music for the songs you are singing.
~Online voice students- I highly recommend and sometimes require downloading vocal warm up tracks. This is also good for students who take lessons in person.

No experience is necessary, that is what I'm here for!

About Jessie M.

Thank you for your interest in lessons! I hope to help you achieve your goals and improve your skills, whether you're looking for music lessons, or help in math. Every student is a unique person who deserves a lesson customized to their individual needs. Each of my students prosper in an atmosphere of patience and encouragement. While the lessons are fun and enjoyable, the serious student will be supported in the development of skills leading to a rewarding career, and the more casual students will grow in an appreciation of knowledge that will enrich their lives.

Experience:

I received my degree in music with an emphasis on vocal performance at the University of Redlands in 2011 (which I attended on a music talent scholarship), and am now an active performer in Los Angeles, CA. I have been tutoring and teaching private lessons for almost 10 years, and currently have over 40 active students.

I have played leading roles in several operas and musicals in Southern California, including Gianni Schicchi, Die Fledermaus, La Boheme (DTL nominee), The Impresario, The Tales of Hoffmann, The Grand Duke, Patience (DTL award), Cosi fan tutte, Little Women, Seussical, and many more. I have also appeared in several concerts, opera scenes, competitions (winning music scholarships and theater awards), and worked as a singer in churches, restaurants, and in pop bands. I continue to stay active in the performance industry in the Los Angeles area, as I could never live without it!

With this experience under my belt, I feel a desire to pass on my knowledge to students. I carry a strong passion to help people develop their abilities and make them their own. I truly believe that if someone wants something out of life they will achieve it with dedication, perseverance, confidence, and by having FUN doing it!

Jessie helped my 12 year old daughter create an audition tape for a Youth Ensemble.
I didn't know even how to start making an audition tape. She did a fantastic job AND my daughter was chosen for the Youth Ensemble group. Excellent experience.

Jessie is a wonderful teacher and coach and helps my daughter prepare for auditions for school events and the local theater camp. My daughter loves singing and has made wonderful progress, gained control of her voice and learned various techniques. She is always excited for the next lesson.

Jessie has a way of working with her that is very sensitive and effective. Vera's confidence and voice have both improved a lot because of Jessie. I strongly recommend her as a teacher for children of this age, and people of any age too.

Improv Acting with Jessie

In January, I decided to take a last minute opportunity to apply for a job at Disney World over the summer. After doing some research regarding the audition process, I found out that there was a brief improv portion involved in the audition. About two and a half to three weeks before the audition, I found Jessie and booked four lessons.
What I received from my lessons was more than I could have ever hoped for. Jessie is an amazing teacher. She is very knowledgable, gives incredibly feedback and advice, and in addition to what an awesome teacher she is, she also is INCREDIBLY flexible and willing to work with your schedule.

A Wonderful Teacher!

Jessie is an incredible person to work with. I went in looking to work on my range and songs for musical theatre and came out with a better understanding of technique and intonation. She is always patient and understanding of her students and is always willing to help them any way she can. She helped me pick songs for my auditions and also informed me about other auditions in the area. I also learned basic piano from her awesome piano worksheet tutorials! Jessie not only is a great instructor, but a great performer as well . Although her voice is beautiful, she doesn't make me feel inadequate or intimidated. Her lessons are always fun to me because of her sense of humour and kindness. Overall, I've had a great experience with Jessie and can't wait to see her again!

Awesome Teacher :)

Since becoming one of her students I've learned so much about singing. During lessons she really pushes me towards what I think I can't do but to the point that doesn't strain my voice. She always makes sure that what I do is comfortable and that I'm not trying to force a sound. She's very enthusiastic and is always giving song suggestions that she feels would best fit my voice. I really like how positive she is about everything and how she invests in the vocal growth of her students. Overall, she's a great teacher and I've really enjoyed being taught by her so far :)

Jessie shows great skill and knowledge in her field. She takes great pride in fulfilling her job responsibilities. She delivers a very comfortable learning atmosphere, and she makes it very easy to learn. She is always; fun, friendly, respectful, positive and encouraging. She has great patience and understanding, it's been a privilege to learn from her and build my craft.

She is a great voice teacher.

My daughter loves Jessie. Her voice has improved since she started taking lessons with her. I like the way she gives her a written note at the end of each lesson with reminders on technique or something my daughter needs to practice before her next lesson. She has also helped teach my daughter how to care for her voice and prepare for events. I highly recommend her!
