Sunnie makes sure that each lesson is relevant to the student she is working with. She believes that everyone is different and they have different desired outcomes from taking lessons. Sunnie is eager to help students reach their specific goals or help them find a goal to reach for. During lessons, you will spend time warming up the voice to best prepare you for your chosen repertoire. You will then rehearse and troubleshoot the song you have chosen.

About Sunnie W.

Sunnie had a humble start growing up in the small town of Grass Valley, CA northeast of Sacramento where throughout grade school she was a dedicated member of the choir. She went on to enroll in the Bachelor of Arts degree program for music at California State University, Sacramento. During her higher education, Sunnie supported herself by working at Starbucks Coffee Company where she's held a position for six years. At the same time, she worked hard to engrain herself into the vibrant music scene throughout the Greater Sacramento area.

After graduating in December 2013 at the age of 23, she immediately enrolled in the Commercial Recording program at American River College in Sacramento. At the same time, Sunnie embarked on a six-month long internship at Sacramento's J Street Recorders under the supervision of owner/operator Brian Wheat, bassist for the internationally acclaimed rock band Tesla. She assisted in the recording of Tesla's latest album, Simplicity, and earned an assistant engineer album credit.

Additionally in early 2014, Sunnie was hired as a lead vocalist in Sacramento's most well-known and active entertainment band, the award winning Hip Service. With the group, Sunnie has performed for thousands of people throughout the country. She has performed along-side renowned artists such as Juan Escovedo and Naughty by Nature. Her past audiences include Condeleezza Rice, Google and the City of Sacramento. Never one to be complacent, Sunnie is also an avid songwriter and has worked with several local and regional producers to record and release her original work.

Currently, Sunnie is gigging with Hip Service, teaching voice to her own roster of private students, and finishing the last semester for her degree in Commercial Recording. She is looking forward to seeing where her music will take her this year through her work as a performer, engineer, songwriter, and vocal instructor.

Sunnie truly understands the importance of healthy, accurate singing when it comes to live performance and uses this as an underlying theme in every lesson she gives. She also emphasizes artistry and expression so that her students are not only singing in a healthy way but they are making art at the same time!

Sunnie is fantastic! She is Knowledgable, friendly and she has a beautiful voice. This is my son's first singing lesson and he was very impressed by her. It takes a lot to impress an 11 year old boy...

Sunnie is a delight and my daughter has learned a lot from her. Her strongest asset is she takes her time and fully explains everything. I would strongly recommend Sunnie for your daughter or son.

Sunnie is really great. She makes sure to see what you are looking to achieve before even starting, then builds lessons around that. She first tests your range and abilities, and gives specific exercises for you to do at home to help reach your goals and expand upon what you've got. You can hear and feel improvements week by week and she switches up the exercises, you aren't always doing the same thing. She really listens, and she makes sure you learn to use the right muscles to avoid straining. If there's specific pieces you want to work on, she will do that with you too, she doesn't restrict you to one style. She's professional, but also very fun. You'll love her.

Sunnie has been teaching our 8 year old daughter, Caralena, for a little over a month now and already we have noticed she is improving her skill; she practices her warm-ups on her own and tries the different techniques she has been shown to reach different sounds. Sunnie has a lovely personality; happy, positive and encouraging, and is very knowledgeable about how to train your voice to do what you want it to do. It is obvious to us that Sunnie is truly educated about what she is teaching Caralena. Sunnie keeps the lessons fun and on track and Caralena is always excited to have her next one. I would recommend Sunnie to someone who is interested in improving their singing!
