Overview

I have been singing and studying voice for over 23 years since I was a child! I hold a Bachelors from Musicians Institute and other accomplished degrees from American Musical Dramatic Academy to conclude my quest for vocal excellence and the ability to sing in multiple languages ( English, Spanish, Japanese and Italian) I have been lucky enough to study with some of the top teachers in the country and now I bring the experience I have gained directly to you!
I am proud to share my student's vast array of musical successes. From being cast on short anime films and musicals to being accepted into prestigious performing arts academies to conquering the Karaoke scene. My passion for multiple languages and love of music is the desire driving me to share the gifts for teaching young children to open the door to their own musical abilities and hidden artistic desires. I am currently writing a musical which will be debuting in 2020. I'm currently the vocal coach and choir director at Iglesia Elim Central.


I will make sure my students have fun and help them get in the right track to their musical goals.

Also, I constantly upload videos on Singing, The Spanish Language, and Japanese! So keep Checking in! It ranges on tips and answering the most common questions on those particular subjects!

*** Lesson Details ***
I do my absolute best to create a positive atmosphere for my students. Even when the students feel frustrated or stressed, it is important to inspire them and give them the fuel that they need. Though I am strict when it comes to homework and their about their studies. Every lesson at the beginning I will review what we learned previously and test them.
then begin with proper breathing technique exercises, the cornerstone of all vocals. We move on to vocal exercises to condition the voice. Then we work on the songs that you are eager to sing!

I will use a piano when doing vocal warm ups and conditioning exercises. Students that play other instruments and accompany themselves when performing (such as a guitar) are encouraged to bring that instrument to their lessons. My goal is for them to gain the knowledge that they need to help reach their artistic goals.
With all my lessons every student will be taught a basic run down of Music Theory. My students will always progress in what they do. They will have the discipline that they need and yet have fun and be filled with inspiration. Which is the most important thing, to be Inspired to do better.

*** Studio Equipment ***
iMac, condensing mic...performing mic, keyboard, mixer...living room of apartment.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I do have a portable keyboard. Though I do expect the student to have their own recording device and karaoke tracks. At Home I do have a studio, and if the students has an iPod or an Mp3 player I can attach it to a device where all of us can hear the tracks. I do have a recording studio as well.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Musical Theatre, and Pop rock genres. When I teach my students I always have them learn a song of another language whether it's Spanish or Japanese. It helps with diction when they learn a song outside the English Language. Also It helps them to learn another Language at the same time. Also I give them a little anatomy class when they are learning how to sing. I give them a model of the vocal Chords and different areas of the Larynx and which part works for the chest voice and the head voice.

Very good with children. I could tell my son was really listening and engaged with what she was trying to teach him.

I feel like everything I say has already been said in the 153 reviews below me, but that should be a sign that it's true. Rosita is an extraordinary teacher. She adapts to your style and tailors every lesson to what you need to advance towards your goal. Staring from scratch? She can help. Working towards a specific piece? She can help. Trying to brush up when you haven't sung in years? Again, she can help.

She has a full working knowledge not only of singing techniques and methodology, but also of how your body works, and is able to explain things in a cognitive way that is intuitive.

I've already said that she adapts your lessons to your needs, and this also means that she gives you control over what you want to work on. Any musician knows they will work harder and learn more from something they are passionate about, so she lets you pick what pieces you are working on. She will often give advice, but regardless, you won't be stuck with a song you hate.

I could go on and write a whole collegiate essay on the multitude of reasons you should choose Rosita to teach you. She has the experience, she has contacts in the music industry (that happens when you live in Hollywood), she has an awesome personality, she knows how to teach people of vastly different ages and skill levels, and all around she is a wonderful person dedicated to helping you learn.

I couldn't recommend her enough.

Rosita is an excellent teacher. She is very detailed in terms of transitioning between notes, breathing properly, and opening the mouth wide enough to sing. She is also very encouraging. On our first lesson, she told me that I had a natural talent for singing, but my voice has improved dramatically since then. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to learn to sing, or can already sing, but wants to sing better.
