As a voice teacher, I teach beginner level to professional. I teach all genres of music from Pop and Jazz to Rock and Musical Theatre, ages 5-Adult. I start by drawing a picture of what the anatomy of their voice looks like. Then I move on to posture, warm ups, and technique. I specialize in the art of performing, movement on stage, microphone technique, and working with a band.

About Sophia A.

Hi there,
I began piano at the age of 5 years old and voice lessons at 9 years old. I graduated from San Francisco State University and Los Angeles College of Music. I have performed with Grammy Award Winners Mya and Patrice Rushen. I have opened for Haily Reinhart, SOMO, and Sammy J. I competed in American Idol, The Voice, and Americas Got Talent. I released an all original music album and have toured nationally and internationally playing and singing on piano as well as with my 8 piece band.

After college I began teaching voice and piano. I invented the music theory game called Match which helps students learn music theory 30% faster than out of a book and music lessons combine. In my vocal lessons I teach the anatomy of the voice and proper vocal technique, allowing any student to sing any song. My music genres include Pop, R&B, Jazz, Rock, and World Music.

I teach Songwriting, playing instruments while singing, and the art of performing.

My students participated in the Musa National Music Competition Three of them taking 1st place titles and one 2nd place title; two years in a row.

I speak French, Arabic and English. I am learning Spanish and am happy to teach songs in different languages.

I love music and look forward to sharing my knowledge and passion with all of you.

Happy learning!

This is one amazing artist. She cares, and is always at the top of her game. Her voice is blessed by angels. If you ask her for help she goes all in. I am overpowered with her talents.

Sophia is such a dynamic teacher! You can tell she's invested in your improvement and she really knows her stuff. She helped me lessen the strain in my voice with the correct techniques and all her helpful tips and tricks. Well worth it!

Sophia took my 10 thumbs and helped me play the piano for the first time. I decided to try it as a bucket list and she was so much fun and enjoyment I love doing my lessons with her more than playing! Love Sophia and do something from home, learn a tune or two whilst we are all in lock down.

Sophia is a wonderful, kind and supportive teacher. She is so patient with me and knows how to keep me challenged and excited about learning. I have been to so many teachers that didn't inspire me and she truly inspires me to get better and better each lesson. I look forward to her classes each week.

Sophia Immediately makes you feel special to your individual needs in her teaching, I was lucky enough to book several of her lessons years ago. The look of joy on her client faces after a lesson was memorable! Especially the young ones. Sophia is patient and kind with all age groups! I would recommend her to anyone for all her lesson types.

Sophia is a excellent instructor. She helped me learn the foundations of good singing technique. She also helps you break old habits. I am a Bass / Guitar Player but wanted a Vocal Lesson to further my musical abilities. She Showed me great vocal exercises as well and basic vocal techniques that will produce the best sound with the least amount of strain. She was also very fun and enthusiastic. Definitely recommend Sophia!!!
