What makes me special is that I'm young and super in touch with the trends, while being an old soul at heart and being trained in serious vocal technique and pop/jazz voice. I want to genuinely have fun and learn with every student I have!

About Samira D.

April COVID-19 Update: Online Lessons Only; Price Drop!

Hi there! I'm Samira and I would love to be considered as your next teacher! :)

I'm a graduate of the Natomas Charter School Performing and Fine Arts Academy with a focus on pop/jazz voice, and I am currently a music/psychology major at American River College. I've been a music teacher for 3 years now, and I love doing it. My general approach is to treat my students like they are my friends, and not like an authority figure. I find that if my students and I are on the same level, they are much more inclined to want to do well!

I've been taking private vocal lessons since I was 10 years old and piano lessons since I was 4, so I've been into music for a while. In my musical career thus far, I have performed in multiple musicals, hosted a jazz gig downtown, traveled and competed in a vocal jazz ensemble, vocal directed a musical, and won awards for my work in the vocal jazz field, including Outstanding Musicianship at multiple jazz festivals.

I know this is a very strange time in the world right now, and you/your kids may be looking for something to do. I've added a discount on my lessons so you can give it a try! I really look forward to speaking with you!

Samira teaches my 11 year old daughter in voice. She is very professional and a pleasure to work with. What's more, my daughter ADORES her. She is sweet and funny and my daughter enjoys each lesson with her. A fantastic teacher.

Samira gives our 6 year old daughter piano lessons. She is very fun, enthusiastic, and sweet, as well as being very knowledgeable about piano. Our daughter absolutely loves going to piano lessons and is learning so much.
