Each person has differently-shaped resonating chambers and vocal folds that make up their anatomy. The way the sound resonates inside is what gives each person his or her own unique voice. It takes a voice teacher with a specialized training in what to look and listen for to understand what is a healthy exercise and what is not. I will help you or your child achieve their goals– but also it takes daily practice to achieve desired results. It takes at least three months of training to experience measurable improvement. Please be patient and keep it up!
I help people of all ability levels:
-Improve pitch accuracy and the tone of the voice
-Increase the singing range (low to high)
-Use breath support to increase the volume of the voice
-Release muscle tension during speaking or singing
-Even out the "glitches" when singing through the range
-Improve over all performance and audition presentation
-Learn to read music
-Learn to sing in harmony
-Become more confident onstage and everywhere else
-Access a brighter and bolder speaking voice (ideal for teachers, pastors, and speakers)
Benefits of studying with Rebekah at Ninth Tone Voice Studios:
The lessons will take place in the convenience of your home– so no travel necessary! Rates are competitive. I put my students' success as my first priority. The first lesson will be utilized as an introduction and consultation between the student and myself. With the knowledge attained from the first lesson, I can tailor a curriculum to fit the needs of the student. I give my students the opportunity to perform in city, regional, and state competitions, recitals, and events through my associations with NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing) and MTAC (Music Teachers Association of California). These organizations also provide curriculum for the students they can strive to be successful in, and will be an essential stepping–stone to further studies in music, or for their resume in general. Students are able to strive for awards of merit that are recognized on a national level.
My students have enjoyed solos in choir, lead roles in school musicals and summer programs, solo performance showcases and successfully singing for weddings and other church programs. I have even coached public speakers to achieve a healthier and more vibrant speaking tone. I have proudly helped people become much more accurate with singing on pitch through ear-training methods.

Ninth Tone Voice Studios is offering high-quality voice lessons and opportunities for singers young and old. We are a brand-new company, established in June of 2014. We are located in the Carlsbad village area, and serve Encinitas, Oceanside, and other neighboring towns.
Here I brought the studio from four students to 20 students in a matter of 6 months. This made the studio more money, but more importantly brought music to the students' lives. I was able to reach out to students aged 7 - 57. Many enjoyed lead roles in school musicals and other special solo engagements.
Here I taught all age groups and formed three different choirs. I recruited diligently and communicated weekly with participants to keep the volunteers engaged on a weekly basis. The children's choir, Teen choir, and adult choir regularly performed and sang in special masses around the year. We held weekly rehearsals to learn music, singing harmonies, and ear-training.
Here I also took the choir from no volunteer singers to around 20 for Christmas. I made the experience for the teen choir one in which the tens felt empowered and responsible for a ministry they served in each Sunday. They had a profound effect on the congregation who enjoyed the music they produced. Having young people involved encouraged the parishioners, young and old.
Here, I also formed a summer music program for teens in which they could learn voice, piano,guitar or bass lessons, and all learned music theory and ear training. This was my first experience with teaching private voice lessons and I learned how rewarding it was. Then I found the Whitby studio.
