Lesson Details

Singing

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Music is very important to me. I want my students to be inspired and learn. My students have been accepted into the top conservatories and universities in the United States. My students have also won major vocal competitions as well as film auditions that include singing. The teaching styles offered in my studio include classical, jazz, musical theater and pop. My teaching philosophy is that the journey to reach the height of technique and professionalism is how the student discovers themselves and their unique voice. I provide the student with the information necessary to guide them along the way. Singing is very personal and students who learn to sing tend to become very vulnerable during the process. Therefore, I believe in creating a safe and enthusiastic environment for my students to explore their creative selves. Enabling a singer to access their inner expression allows them to grow as a singer/artist and a person.

Excellent instructor for my 8 year old son. Nani is very encouraging and assigns tasks and activities that keeps him engaged and interested in learning and playing more. She is very knowledgeable and will design the appropriate lesson plan based on your or your child's abilities.

I absolutely recommend Nani and will definitely take her lessons again! I was working on a demo for the 2016 Chinese Voice competition so I figured to get some professional help. Nani turned out to be the perfect teacher for this! She is a professional opera singer and very passionate about singing. She is very friendly and has a great sense of humor. Her teaching methodology is very scientific, and she taught me techniques that I can apply immediately, and I was able to solve the two biggest struggles in singing after 2 lessons with her. I'm looking forward to improve my singing by taking more Nani's lessons in the future! =D

Nani makes me feel really comfortable and excited about working to be my best singer. She has a great grasp of operatic technique but has helped me with Jazz standards and exercises that make my body feel more present, as well as my voice. I'm looking forward to continuing!

Nani is a true professional and gem of a person! I had my first lesson last night and I couldn't be happier with my experience. A novice singer, I've been intimidated by the concept of vocal lessons for some time now. Nani made me feel completely comfortable and supported. Her instruction is clear and constructive. I learned so much in 60 minutes and look forward to our work together in the future.

Nani is a an absolute gem! She immediately made our 11 year old daughter feel at ease from the minute she met her. She is always smiling and enthusiastic and very positive in the way she critiques the young singer-in training, and always encouraging! We would highly recommend her - we are fortunate to have her!
