My name is Michelle Ranalli and I am an Opera student at Azusa Pacific University. I am a Soprano, and have been singing classically for five years. I previously studied at East Los Angeles College, where I received my AA degree in Music.

If you take lessons with me, we will go over technique fundamentals, IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) for singers, and classical repertoire. Additionally, I offer lessons in theory, musicianship, and Spanish. I am eager to begin working with you!

· Classical Voice · In studio Michelle is a tutor who cares about her students. She is honest, musically educated and is very knowledgeable. She helped me with my voice and piano. I enjoyed taking lessons from her because she was flexable with my type of music.

· Spanish · In studio Michelle is a very polite, fun, and knowledgable. She was always patient when helping me practice my Spanish, and now I am able to hold a reasonable conversation with fluent Spanish speakers in Mexico! Couldn't have done it without her help.

· Ear Training · In studio If you are aurally challenged when it comes to intervals and harmonic progressions, I definitely recommend tutoring. Michelle was very patient during our lessons and had different tips on how to identify certain progressions, which I appreciated. We also worked on complex rhythms together. It was actually really fun. She's very kind, resourceful, and an excellent tutor.

· Spanish · In studio Michelle was very effective in teaching me basic phrases and sentences in Spanish. I am preparing for a trip to Mexico with my family, and want to be able to communicate with them effectively. As Michelle comes from Mexico, I feel she is giving me an authentic Spanish interaction. She is also very friendly, which makes for a comfortable learning experience.
