- Teaches students:
- Ages 5+ and special needs
- Teaching since:
I spend the majority of my time working with people. Training and coaching them to become better performers, as well as healthier more confident individuals. I have a Bachelors in Psychology and have been directing, as well as performing in both film, theater, and music production for the past 15 years. I have worked as a musical therapy teaching assistant, performed at the STORM Stadium, and have won awards such as the MACY's, REFLECTION, National Youth Theater Award and for my vocal abilities. I teach and cater to each individual, focusing on building confidence, as well as increasing select skills the individual needs or wants to work on. I make sure students are practicing in a healthy ways as to prolong their abilities and increase their skill in their performance. I also can teach how to vocally perform along side instruments or theatrical venues, as I play harp, piano, ukulele as well as am knowledgable in other instruments, and theatrics. Most importantly, I am determined to make this a positive experience and one my students can recognize their growth in.+ Read More
Sierra is a wonderful instructor! She is very positive and encouraging to my daughters. Sierra is kind, patient, and prepared. She makes the lessons fun. Not only is she a great teacher, she's a great person. I would highly recommended her!
It is hard with a lot of teachers to get the full experience from online. In my voice career I have consistently looked for online teachers but I either felt I was getting worst from their advice or the lessons were to disconnected. Sierra is not one of them. She is direct, smart, and personable. She is able to pick out even the slightest change of pitch and is aware of how even types of laptops and sound location in a room can affect ones sound. She designs her lessons to you and what you need. We decided together to do weekly homework assignments that would make me more aware of my vocal abilities and I can say they transformed me. Not only in performance but in character as well. She doesn't try to show off even though her voice is AMAZING! She makes the lesson about you and is patient with your concerns. One day I just needed a whole day to vent and she listened to me the entire time, and even stayed online overtime so I could still get a lesson. Because of her I got moved up to our highest choir and got to perform at Disneyland! I was definitely tone deaf before even my choir teacher would joke about it but within a semester I had three solos. In addition, its very difficult to learn complex vocal techniques through online sources. As we progressed I moved into opera, something I never thought I could do. She is very observant to even how I move my neck and jaw and is willing to get very technical and push you if you are ready. I have done several concerts and competitions in opera now and she has provided me with a large majority of my connections. She wants you to excel and with her you will excel.+ Read More
Sierra's lessons go beyond the vocal technique taught in master classes. She focuses on the student as a individual and not only builds them vocally but mentally and physically. With in a month of working with her my tone, range, and belt had improved three fold. I no longer feel strain when I sing and she has helped me cope with my performance anxiety. She is a teacher I would recommend to anyone, especially those who may be feeling vocal strain or performance anxiety, as she is well trained in mental and physical vocal health. One of the kindest teachers I have ever met. I have never met a teacher before who could push me above my limits, yet increase my confidence as a performer.+ Read More
