*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very fun loving person and believe in creating a positive environment where students feel comfortable to be themselves. At the same time I am a stickler for details and do not allow laziness. I believe a balance of fun with excellence has allowed my students to excel far beyond their own expectations. Good results takes HARD WORK! Please do not come to lessons with the expectation to sing like Beyoncé or play piano at Carnegie Hall after 4 lessons. Mastering your voice and instrument takes equal parts of time, hard work, dedication and patience.

My teaching style is individually based.
For vocal clients, I asses their strengths and weaknesses and develop a plan to build up their weak areas while helping them find "their own voice". I focus on breathing, intonation and control which I believe are the foundation of great singing ability. I use a classical Italian based program along with pop, R&B, jazz, and rock. I have vocal coached in many languages including Spanish, Japanese and Chinese.

For piano clients I focus on strength, dexterity and precision in fingering. I also help students learn to feel the music and bring their personality and touch to each piece they are performing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Tanisha currently teaches at her performing arts academy the White H Arts Academy. There are private instruction rooms and a lobby waiting area for parents and guests. Parents may also sit in the lesson room if desired. Private lesson rooms include a piano, speakers, and a music stand.

The White H Arts Academy also has two state of the art mirrored dance rooms with sound systems and wireless microphones for practicing stage performances or rehearsing for a big show.

*** Specialties ***
Vocals: beg to adv
Piano: beg to inter

Vocal genres are classical (opera), pop, R&B, gospel, rock, jazz, blues and musical theater. I studied voice at Berklee College of Music. Have also studied Seth Riggs SLS (Speech Level Singing) method independently, however, I am not certified. I also teach in languages other than English including Spanish, Japanese and Chinese.

Piano instruction levels I teach are basic to intermediary focusing on classical, and general accompaniment abilities.

Tanisha is one of the best instructors I've ever had. She's patient, thorough and has a great sense of humor. I've seen improvement in my vocals in just the few months that I've worked with her and realize how important it is to have a good coach. A good coach will teach you proper technique so that you don't sing in a way that puts an unhealthy strain on your voice while at the same time stretching your vocals. She does that and so much more. The icing on the cake is that she also teaches guitar and piano which are instruments I want to learn as well. She's a one-stop shop for nearly everything.

When I first signed up with take lessons I was very skeptical. I had never done anything like this before and had no idea what to expect. I read the reviews which were great, but still felt skeptic because I know everyone has different experiences. I must say that all the reviews were very true! Tanisha made me feel very welcome in her home. She listened to my concerns and her feedback washed them away. I left her home studio feeling excited, confident and just high on life and what's in store for my next session.

My husband & I wanted our grand daughter to take lessons to learn how to breathe and sing without straining her voice. She has been learning under Tanisha's guidance for the past 9 months and there has been such a significant
improvement in her voice. To this day our grand daughter has preformed in two recitals under Tanisha's Foundation and she has become very confident when preforming and her voice is much stronger.
Tanisha is a very personable and caring teacher. We just love her!

I feel confident working with Tanisha. During my first lesson, we did breathing exercises and she chose a song for me to practice. She helped me learn the song because she noticed that it's a great fit for my voice and genre. Tanisha encouraged me to use the song as guide so I can practice matching the pitch. Tanisha sang along with me while she listened to my voice. She knew exactly how to improve my vocal performance right on the spot. Her tips and teaching made my voice sound beautifully efforless. With Tanisha's help and encouraging words I know I can achieve a dream I've been working and praying for.

First lesson was amazing. After reading the reviews, I thought she just sounded to good to be true, but her reviews were right on the money. She made me feel comfortable by getting to know who I was as a person not just a paycheck. The little nerves I did have melated away with the little accolades I received for time to time trying to sing. I plan on stick with her for a while, maybe even after I achieve my main goal. I'm definitely not a singer but with her, I think I can get somewhere.

I began taking vocal lessons with Tanisha back in December 2015. I had taken some voice lessons a few years prior, but it just didn't stick. Luckily, my first experience Tanisha was a great one. We went over my personal goals as a singer and she catered to those specific needs. I would say Tanisha's biggest strength as a singing instructor is the way she focuses on the singer's specific needs while making the lesson as fun as possible. Her ability to balance seriousness and enjoyment is something I have never seen before. I have recommended her to my friends, and I extend that recommendation to you!

I've met Tanisha during my temporary stay in LA, so I did just a few lessons with her because of the short time I had.

Tanisha was really good in focusing on the core of my singing attitude and really helped me realize how I can improve my technique.
That's why I'm still training with her vocal exercises; despite the brevity I feel I've improved already.

Thanks Tanisha for all your support and hints!

I've always had singing lessons on my bucket list. So at age 45+ I decided to give it a try with online lessons from Tanisha. I can't say enough about these lessons. Tanisha is a real pro. Even over Skype she was able to identify the habits and idiosyncrasies that were impacting my singing and provide me with some easy ways to improve my voice. She has the technical knowledge and skill to help shower singers like myself or rising stars. I especially enjoyed the opera exercises that really stretched my capabilities. Watch out karaoke. Here I come!

First, we chatted about my singing history/where I am now/where I desire to go & Tanisha isn’t just an amazing vocal coach, she is an amazing LIFE coach. Within that conversation, she gave me hope past some challenging times in my life. Her authenticity was refreshing.
Finally we got to the singing; Tanisha has an effortless way of imparting major knowledge & skill into fun moments that is exceptional.
I hadn't realized how much I was my own obstacle until singing with Tanisha. I'd been making singing more difficult than it was and taking all the fun and natural "know how" out of it. After one lesson, while singing in my car--a song that I had been unable to sing through because of the high notes came on and I sang as normal, imagine my surprise when I reached the high notes and they EFFORTLESSLY came out! I was so ecstatic. AFTER ONE LESSON. The technical knowledge she gave me on how to use my vocal cords/breath/diaphragm correctly were everything I needed to obviously open up my range again. It still isn't where it can go, but it is further than I'd ever imagined already. I look forward to growing my vocals back with Tanisha. I highly recommend Tanisha especially for people who desire an instructor with a high focus on vocal health.
Finally, if it is a concern--don't let the location fool you! It is very safe & once inside you could very well be at a West Hollywood Studio location. She has meticulously decorated & equipped her school with all the best.

Tanisha is the BEST! I started taking voice lessons with her when I first moved to LA 8 months ago. I always thought I was taking voice lessons just to improve my confidence in professional settings since I'm really soft-spoken. But thanks to Tanisha I've built that confidence and have been applying it to building myself as an artist.

She's helped me develop my range in a way that I am no longer afraid of trying new things with my voice. Oh, and thanks to her I'm also learning to write my own songs. :)

She's awesome, makes lessons fun, and is always open to helping you get where YOU need to get.

THANK YOU TANISHA <3

Tanisha is amazing ! She always goes above and beyond and always has your best interest at heart. I'm naturally very shy and from the first day she's always made me very comfortable while also pushing me to get out of that. In the little time that I've been working with her I've seen great improvement. If you're serious about taking your music career to the next level I would definitely recommend her !

Tanisha is impressive. She focused quickly on my goal of developing a more sustainable speaking voice and gave me a set of practical exercises, tips, reading material, and video material for continuing to improve my delivery even after our lesson package had ended. She tailored her instruction to my specific needs and blended her advice with humor and empathy. I felt comfortable working with her. She even got me to sing once or twice. You'll be really happy with your voice instruction from her. Thank you, Tanisha!

I lovvvvve Tanisha. She has this upbeat and vibrant personality; she's super sweet and nice. When it comes to singing, she has you pick out your own song that you would like to sing. She doesn't bombard you with songs and training that won't enhance your voice. I've already noticed changes to my voice and I'm only on my 6th lesson. Plus, she's not a teacher that watches the clock, so if she feels you need an extra 10 mins for vocal training, then you will exceed your time limit with no problem. She's there to help you and if I had to recommend a vocal coach, then of course it would be Tanisha Hall :)

I'm a 55 yr old female that hasn't taken voice lessons in the last 20+ years. From that time until recently I would just do karaoke off and on. I started taking lessons with Tanisha about seven months ago. She is the absolute best thing that has ever happened to my voice. Initially I just wanted to learn how to use my "alto" voice more effectively. I avoided singing soprano songs because it was very uncomfortable and it didn't sound right to me. But to my surprise Tanisha convinced me that I am in deed a first soprano. She started working with me on my singing with much attention on my upper range. Thanks to Tanisha, for the first time in my life I have started feeling like a real singer! She has truly taken me places vocally that I could have only dreamed of going. Even when I sing lower it sounds tons better. I practice consistently because I'm so excited about all of the progress I have made in just a seven month period. And I am just blown away that I have those high notes now! When it comes to the voice Tanisha is definitely a miracle worker! On top of that she has this bubbly personality and from the day that I met her I felt like I've been knowing her for years. She's like a new best friend!

For the past 6 months I have taken voice lessons with Tanisha. She has a very warm personality that makes you feel instantly comfortable and at ease. She is passionate about teaching and also tailors the lessons to who you are as an individual so that she can help to extract the very best out of you as a student. She is encouraging and never judgmental and meets you right where you are at. Most of all, she has abounding patience. I have seen an overall improvement in my vocal ability and can now sing in a range that I thought was impossible for me.

Tanisha is the perfect coach and teacher. She provides both services at such a high level, I definitely would not be where I am today without her guidance.

through the few short weeks I have worked with her, I have improved in my live performances as well as my mental aspects of my singing. the homework she gave during the week has literally changed my confidence and performance. I have never had so many compliments after a concert. It is both uplifting and affirming the hard work I've put into my vocals!! I only see a bright future ahead with Tanisha and myself.

Tanisha is AWESOME

Tanisha- she knows what she’s doing. I remember a saying that goes “Those who can’t do, teach” –something like that- but anyway, Tanisha, well, she both CAN DO and TEACH. She definitely knows her art and she would make sure that you learn yours too. She doesn’t just stop at teaching you how to reach the notes; she will teach you how to own the notes, that is the way she teaches music. I never thought I could be even more passionate about singing than I already am until I met her. The passion that she brings with her is so captivating that she will, not only involve you, but engage you in what you’re doing. Her energy during the class is just contagious, it would really make you take on the lessons with enthusiasm and glee- not a dull moment with her but also she knows just exactly how to balance it with the right amount of strictness so you would really get the lesson in your head. . I remember the first time I spoke with Steve, the operator from take lessons telling me how Tanisha is actually quite far from my place but that I should go on and try the lessons because she’s definitely worth the travel- well, I should really commend Steve too because he is so right, taking lessons with Tanisha is one of the best decisions I have ever made, maybe I’ll commend myself too for making that decision and if you make the same decision then I will commend you too ;p lol

Tanisha is passionate about the act of teaching. There is a positive relationship between teacher and singer. When a vocal exercise is offered, an explanation of purpose is accompanied.

What I love most about my lessons with Tanisha is the fact that she took time to really learn my voice. She did a great job at helping me find a range that was comfortable and exclusivey fit for me! The songs that she chose for me to sing were challenging yet very possible for me to learn. In addition she made sure that we sang song that were fit for the genre I aspire to master. Tanisha is a kind and truly caring teacher. She will also push you, she gives her all in teaching sessions and she will not take anything less from you!

She’s also very supportive and knows how to make you improve your weaknesses. She provided me with the lyrics and even chose a great song that would benefit me as a beginner. I really appreciate her teaching me and giving me her honest opinion. She really cares about her students and I would highly recommend her to anymore!! I really look up to Tanisha, she’s a very talented musician. I always look forward rehersal !

Truly the BEST OF THE BEST.

I have studied with Tanisha Hall for 14 months. During this time she’s expanded my power, range, stamina, phrasing, note-perfect pitch, and stage presence. She has also kept me from damaging my chords, so I don’t have a sore throat anymore. Perhaps the most critical thing Tanisha has shown me is how to AUTHENTICALLY CONNECT with audiences and form a deep bond with them during live performances.

RESULTS:
Since Tanisha has been working with me, here are the tangible results, with no exaggeration at all:

I got to sing the Star Spangled Banner for start of a 5K road race that had 3,000 runners in it, and a very large crowd of spectators.

I have been offered weekly residency at a performance venue in North Hollywood, and also a bi-weekly residency at high-end supper club in Long Beach.

I got invited to collaborate with a well-known pianist to perform Christmas songs with her at two of her most exclusive venues. She also wants to collaborate with me to sing at weddings during the wedding season.

I’ve also received offers to co-write new material and to go into the studio to cut tracks with some artists in Orange County, even though their style and genre is very different than the direction I plan to go into. They keep constantly bugging me to sing with them.

And more...

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

In summary, I simply can’t tell you how critical Tanisha has been to my development (after years of going nowhere) and how LUCKY anyone is to have her as an instructor.

If she has room in her schedule to take you on as a new student, you’d better take it while you can. Even if it means driving 40 miles, you’ll never find anyone better than her, for sure.

Tanisha is an Excellent Singing Teacher!

Tanisha is worth every minute of every lesson, every mile of the 40-minute drive, and every dime of her modest fee. My 13-year old daughter (excuse me, "about to be 14") has been taking singing lessons from Tanisha since early this year. After the first one-hour lesson, both my daughter and I walked away smiling from ear to ear. We were impressed and ecstatic, knowing that we were blessed to have literally stumbled upon someone of Tanisha's talents, personality, and passion for teaching.

Tanisha is always cheerful and pleasant and has a great sense of humor. She is honest with her criticism and encouraging at the same time. I have noticed a marked improvement in the strength of my daughter's voice and her singing confidence. Tanisha teaches my daughter how to use her voice healthfully so that she can have longevity as a singer. She teaches my daughter how to overcome voice issues, like hoarseness from having a cold, to deliver a good performance in spite of the problem. She teaches my daughter what happens when her voice doesn't come out right so my daughter knows how to recognize and correct it herself. We went from Tanisha asking my daughter "What happened that time?" when she hit a wrong note and my daughter shrugging her shoulders with a blank stare to my daughter answering with confidence, "I sang from my throat and didn't support."

Tanisha has challenged my daughter completely out of her comfort zone with great progress, and she teaches my daughter that it is ok to hit a bad note so she can learn how to fix it. She gives my daughter voice exercises to practice at home.

Tanisha is more than my daughter's vocal teacher. She teaches my daughter how to "perform" in front of the mirrored wall which is helping my daughter feel more confident singing in front of an audience. Tanisha relates to my daughter with endless funny analogies that my daughter loves. My daughter looks forward to every lesson, and she respects and looks up to Tanisha as a mentor as well as vocal teacher who, by the way, has an amazing voice herself and is gifted on the piano.

From the experience and progress that my daughter has gained with Tanisha, she is 100 times more confident with her singing than she was at the beginning of the year. Tanisha is awesome - more than we bargained for. You would be blessed to have her as a vocal teacher. We plan to start my daughter on piano lessons soon, and I'm toying with the idea of taking songwriting lessons from her.
