Classical vocal technique with a contemporary application. A solid classical vocal foundation crosses over into any style of music you wish to sing. I am a classically trained opera singer (UCLA: BA Vocal Performance, Graduate Studies: École Normale de Musique de Paris) who performs in both classical (opera and choral) and non-classical musical settings (musical theater, jazz, and pop).

About Taj J.

Hello! My name is Taj, and I am a classically trained singer and voice teacher based in Los Angeles. I received my BA in Vocal Performance from UCLA in 2014 while studying under internationally renowned opera star, Vladimir Chernov. I continued my graduate studies at École Normale de Musique de Paris under Maestro Chernov's wife and personal voice teacher, Olga Toporkova.

I believe in establishing a solid technical foundation based in classical singing technique. The technique I teach comes from the Russian school of Bel Canto (beautiful singing in Italian). By gaining control of your voice through breath control and precise vocal placement, anything is possible! A solid technical foundation will assure the longevity of your voice and its application crosses over into any genre of music you sing.

As a singer, I have performed in a wide variety of contexts ranging from opera, choral, musical theater, jazz, and R&B/pop. I have over 15 years of experience performing, and over 5 years of experience teaching voice. My diverse array of artistic experiences allows me to be flexible and sensitive to the specific needs of my students.

Singing is ultimately a form of artistic expression and release. The end goal of all the technical training is to create an artistic moment for both you and the audience. When you begin the journey of discovering your own unique voice, you will also begin a deeper journey with yourself. Singing has brought me so much joy in my own life and I look forward to sharing that joy with you!

Literally fantastic! I’ve only had my first lesson and I was thoroughly impressed by the quality of the lesson, as well as Taj’s supportive personality. Strongly recommend taking lessons!

Taj is an amazing teacher and you can tell he really loves it too! I am a musician and have been singing professionally for years, and in just one lesson Taj taught me practices and techniques that allowed my voice to feel effortless and powerful in a way it never has before. His lessons will strengthen your voice no matter what style you want to sing...jazz, rock, opera, pop. He makes it very fun as well- I look forward to our lessons all week!

Taj is classically trained and knows his stuff. He showed me how to become more in tune with my instrument, and pushed me to new limits in my range and power. His commitment to music is contagious

Taj is a very experienced singer in many types of vocal technique. He catered the lessons to my needs and gave me tips and vocal exercises from which I was able to improve my vocals, breathing technique, and singing confidence. He is also a sweetheart and a genuine dude. While I was defintely challenged in his lessons, I thoroughly enjoyed myself and gained much needed advice from him!

Classical Voice · In studio

Having studied under Taj for the past year I have found a significant improvement in the size and strength of my voice. He focuses on the essentials of the voice and is great at figuring out how my voice works best and he then creates exercises tailored specifically to me. I never feel vocally tired after lessons because he properly warms me up and keeps me from pushing my voice.

He is also an incredible coach in languages. His strongest are German and French, but his Italian is not far behind.

I feel like I can bring any style of music to Taj and he has the knowledge and musicality to coach me on it. I am focused in opera, but I love to sing Broadway as well. Many of our lessons start with opera repertoire, but then if we have time at the end we break out the musical rep.
