Hi! My name is Leila. I played the lead role (Kim) in the New York Broadway production of the musical, Miss Saigon. I have been teaching Voice for the past 20 years. I teach technique, articulation and performance. I am open to teach all styles of music. I teach all ages although I believe 10 years old is a good age to start (depending on the maturity of the young student). I have taught all ages from 7 all the way up to 65.

I feel very lucky to have worked with Leila. She is kind, compassionate, non-judgemental, creative and very experienced. She will support you and she will challenge you...she is on the journey with you all the way. I highly recommend her!

A few years ago I was fortunate enough to take a vocal workshop in Paris, France where Leila was one of the instructors. Her guidance during that class is what prompted me to take private lessons with her.

Studying with Leila has been an amazing experience – she has a rare combination of coaching for vocal technique/mechanics as well as for performance and interpretation. Since studying with her the past year, there have been noticeable results – I have gone from being a newbie singer to a confident performer who now sings in the Paris open mic scene.

With Leila moving from Paris to Los Angeles I truly miss the in-person weekly lessons…the good news is that via SKYPE you can still take lessons with her to continue your growth as a vocalist. Leila is truly a gifted teacher and coach – I have learned so much from studying with her. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

I've first taken lessons from Leila back in 2008 or 2009. She recently moved back to CA from Paris and now I am excited to be continuing lessons with her. Her techniques have made my voice stronger. She gives excellent demonstrations, hand motions, and analogies that explain each technique in a compressible manner. Leila is versatile in teaching a wide range of genres, from classical to R&B/ pop to Broadway. She is very personable, kind and very knowledgeable. It is an honor to have a Miss Saigon Broadway alum as my teacher!
