What's inside the singing lesson?

Lessons revolve around three basic aspects which are training, singing, and acting.

In training, definitely be ready for some scale exercises. If you want to work on making your vibrato faster, breathe better, sing more loud or soft, sing short or longer phrases, controlling your mix, executing your melismas, r&b licks, blue notes, bending notes, singing super high notes and transitioning down to lower notes: balancing head and chest voice, and expanding your range, then vocal training is what you'll need. Most of this activity involves matching sounds to custom scales played on a piano.

In singing, definitely have a song in mind you want to work on. Then we'll discuss which techniques and skills that are essential for that particular genre of music. Other than that, you'll learn singer's diction and will know how to control vowel sounds and consonants more efficiently. Most of this activity involves you singing either a line, a verse, chorus, bridge, or the entire song. It really depends on what level you feel comfortable at. Most of this activity revolves around breathing techniques, phrasing techniques, and you singing the melody correctly on pitch.

In acting, whether you're recording or performing, you'll still need to put an act together. Portrayal of emotions are quite the essential skills to make your sound believable. If singing with feeling is not working out for you, then you might want to consider working on some basic acting skills. Some of the skills covered are voice inflections, rhythm, gestures, body language, and facial expressions. Most of this activity involves you expressing yourself as an artist.

How to be prepared for the lesson?

If you do not have a piano or recording device on hand, I'll provide both devices for you. It's recommended to provide a piano. It doesn't have to be expensive, it just has to be in tuned. If it's digital, you should be fine. It's also recommended to have a recording device. Many clients enjoy recording their lessons on their mp3 players or any other computer devices. Please have a clean and clear space with an electrical outlet for the piano and recording device. Other than that, please wear comfortable clothing as if you are about to play a sport or an activity you enjoy. If you want to dress like a super star that's fine too.

If you're taking lessons online, don't worry about anything because everything will be provided.

So far, definitely what I am looking for in a vocal instructor to help you explore your voice more, rather than just trying to "get by"' with whatever you've been doing in the past and thereby avoiding the opportunity to grow both physically and mentally.

For me in the vocal realm that takes a lot of courage, and I greatly appreciate greatly his calming presence and his positive attitude. Also, he's organized, responsive, and professional. I'm so happy about that. Receiving a recording of your lesson is an added plus! Thanks so much!

Just had my first lesson with Mr. Varin and it was great! I was really nervous but Varin was patient and understanding. He took the time to listen to my concerns and was very clear with his explanations. Highly recommended!!!

Varin is honestly such a great teacher. Since it was my first time ever getting formal vocal instruction, I was really nervous; however, he slowly eased away my anxiety with his patience and sense of sympathy. Professional yet relaxed, encouraging and reliable! Would recommend.

I'm a trans guy. As I transitioned from soprano to tenor, Varin helped me figure out how to use my new voice, on a conceptual and practical level. Overall, it was a great experience.

Hi I am a professional dancer from Los Angeles. I worked with Varin in North Hollywood. Super nice instructor. He taught me everything I need to know for auditions.

Varin is nice. My mom hired him so I could sing solos at my church. I go to Jurupa Hills High and I run track. On my spare time, I sing and play piano. Singing has always been a passion of mine. Learning with Varin is always fun! He's not mean or strict with my voice. He is good. You should try him.

Hey all, I met through a friend of a friend. He's definitely a lot cheaper here = /

Any ways, I think he's worth every penny hehe

I'm an actress and I was really weak in the singing department until a close friend of mine referred his singing coach.

I am pursuing my dream in New York right now. I don't think I would be able to compete out here without Varin. XOXOXOXOXOO

Varin's teaching methods were really helpful to me. He's a really out going guy and he makes you feel comfortable in being able to make mistakes. The techniques he taught me were extremely helpful in improving my vocal range. Highly Recommend him!!!
