Hi, I'm Reina and I'm obsessed with the voice instrument! I have over 20 years of music experience, as a vocalist and performer. I've been teaching voice lessons since 2005.
Below is a list of FAQ's - if you have further questions beyond what is listed feel free to contact me through the Ask a Question feature on my profile.
Where can I take voice lessons?
You can take lesson online, or at my home studio in San Diego, Ca.
What will I learn in my lessons?
You will learn how to care for, and properly play your instrument. We will start with basic exercises and drills, and move into more advanced techniques as you progress in your skill sets.
What if I'm a beginner?
Totally fine! I teach all levels beginning through professional. The voice is an instrument just like any other instrument and must be learned in the same manner, from the beginning!
Can I try the first class Free?
No, but you will get a FREE lesson on your birthday and for each friend you refer that purchases a 5-pack of lessons.
What is your teaching style?
I am more than your voice teacher. I am your coach, your friend, your, mentor and peer. You are your voice, and in order for me to properly teach, you have to trust me. We will build a rapport as you grow your instrument in confidence, strength and flexibility.
Are there added bonuses to taking singing lessons?!
Yes! Proper breathing is a guaranteed ab workout, singing can improve your speaking voice, and you'll have a better sense of self understanding by learning how to better control your instrument. Not to mention all the unplanned karaoke you can take part in!
A little more about the teacher:
I've been a singer since as long as I can remember. I never wanted anything else. I started as a beginner by imitating my favorite artists. I performed a lot as a child, and stopped performing for a while in my teen years due to stage fright and the such. During that time I started songwriting and recording, I studied music in college, graduated and started performing again as a solo artist. I joined a few bands, they all broke up. I licked my wounds and now I'm a happy, recording, performing, songwriting, teaching, voice-over, and producing vocalist.
Through OB Arts Collective I am able to offer arts education to students of all ages. I currently teach Voice as a private and group instructor. I also teach Hobby Arts Classes at local Middle Schools and Libraries.
