About Monica A.

If you want to learn to LOVE performing, get in touch with me! I'm a graduate of the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts (Vocal Major), as well as the Hartt School of Music, Theatre, and Dance, where I got my BFA in Musical Theatre, and performing is truly in my blood!
I believe that more than anything, music should be about having fun and making your soul happy. And I believe lessons should be fun as well! Of course we'll get into music theory, healthy & sustainable singing technique, and performance & audition prep, but it's more about finding joy in expressing yourself and giving the student ownership over their art.
The same goes for my acting lessons. I will work diligently to find material that fits you personally, and then we will work it until it becomes as natural as your own thoughts.
I can also help with college auditions for musical theatre programs, seeing as I auditioned for 25 college myself before deciding on Hartt.
If any of the above interests you, send me a quick question and we'll work out a time that works for both of us! Have a great day!!

My 11 yr old daughter has absolutely loved working with Monica and has shown tremendous improvement over the last few months. If you aren't sure what teacher to choose, give her a try. I think you'll like her too!

Monica has been a wonderful teacher. I appreciate that the experience has been very collaborative. She will teach a technique and ask if it feels right or sounds right to you and to test it out for a week and if that's not working for you well try a different approach, So it's more trial and error than there is one way to sing. And I think having some control and agency over your vocal journey leads to a more confident and positive experience. Lessons with Monica have been very open and fun. I feel like I have progressed at a faster rate in the past 3 months working with her than the past 5 years I have been trying to improve my voice. And I am very curious and excited about how much further I'll grow in the future with Monica's assistance.

Wow! I was impressed by Monica's recap from her class about reading music. She made things so clear- it helped me a lot, now I can explain them to my own student more easily! I also love her positive attitude!

It doesn’t get much better than hearing from my child “Monica is so awesome. At the beginning of the song it goes super low and I couldn’t hit the notes. She helped me with my technique and by the end of the lesson it was easier to hit them! And even though I know I did awful trying to hit them at the beginning she didn’t make me feel like she thought it was bad!”

My kids love their lessons with Monica, she is always positive and supportive with them and I can tell they are improving vocally. Very happy we chose her!

Monica offers very insightful coaching for both acting and singing. She gets to the heart of the story and helps me find ways to bring that to life. She is very kind in her coaching and I leave her lesson with more confidence in my ability to portray that character. Great for getting ready for an audition.
