Milton J.

Corona, CA

I have been teaching speaking voice for about half a year. I help my students find their projective voice for voiceover and theatrical work.

About Milton

Music is the means to create a portal into our souls, so that we may see each other for who and what we are, not merely as what we do. I want to help foster those young, middle-aged, and not-as-young how to tap into their own soul portals through music so that they may find others' as well. I believe that in order to entertain others with your voice or your instrument playing, one must first be able to entertain oneself - all the while having fun doing it! As a recent graduate of the University of California, Davis with a double major in Music History & Ethnomusicology and African-American &
African Studies; a former co-host of the popular hip-hop radio show ATF Radio: All Things Fresh on KDVS 90.3 FM; a former Music Director of The Afterglow of UC Davis; and a current Vocal Music Performance graduate student at the University of Redlands, I have come in contact and learned from a vast amount of different musicians and professionals. A classically-trained bass-baritone with roots in R&B, Soul, Rock, Pop, and Jazz, I have aspirations to help each and every student realize their full musical potential.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is very friendly, inviting, and audience-driven. In the beginning, I strive to refer to my presence in the lessons as a fly-on-the-wall, so to speak, in order for my students to get out of their own way and sing as if no one's watching. From there, I apply the audience aspect - singing not only for enjoyment, but for entertainment for yourself and for others as well. If one is able to build that frame of mind in their lessons, their actual performances will not be too far from what they've already dealt with before.

I provide teaching and repertoire books, as well as instrumentation for myself (i.e. guitar, misc. tools for specific lessons). I expect my students to provide a piano (or keyboard equivalent), pitch pipe, and instrument if applicable (i.e. guitar), and, of course, themselves!

Wonderful instructor! Milton has a great attitude and is a joy to be around. My son loves learning from him and we are very thankful for finding such a patient, creative and skilled instructor. Student's Review - Milton is an exciting and fun guitar teacher. He has exceeded expectations and made otherwise bland lessons interesting and fun. He is always quippy and easy to be around. Having him as an instructor has made me grow to love the guitar even more.

Milton is a great teacher! He explains everything, teaches you theory and proper techniques. He is down to earth and makes you feel comfortable. He pushes you out of your comfort zone, but in a good way so that you can grow as a singer. I am very glad I chose to take lessons with him!

Susan S.

Mission Viejo, CA

About Susan

I have been performing since the age of three. At the age of seven, I began classical vocal lessons. At 8, I wrote the school song for Cherry Creek Elementary School in Marquette, Michigan. When I was 10, I entered and won the Grand Supreme title at my first pageant. When I was 13, I moved my vocal training at the local University becoming the youngest classical vocal student. After years of participating in musical theatre productions, I landed a job in a guitar shop that lead to a big shift in my musical interests. I left my small town, the theatre and my classical background behind and bega
n fronting both Country and Rock bands, even singing along side Juice Newton, The Oak Ridge Boys, Glen Campbell, Sugarland, and Trick Pony on stage at the Porterfield Country Music Festival in 2005, which has in years past drawn nationally known country music artists such as Johnny Cash, Charlie Daniels, and Loretta Lynn. At age 19, I had an acoustic act which landed me a guest spot on 'The Tyra Banks Show.' I have been a featured performer at Chicago's House of Blues, as well as some of the most popular hotspots in Wrigleyville.
In most recent years, I have been behind the scenes as a vocal coach in the greater Chicago area. I moved to Mission Viejo, California recently, and look forward to meeting new students! I have four children, my youngest daughter has Down syndrome so I'm also partial to working with students with special needs.
I'm really excited to add that offer lessons online through TakeLessons! It's a great thing to get to work with students all over this country and I'm looking forward to help pioneer the future of music lessons!

*** Lesson Details ***
Whether you are looking to learn to project, or how to make it through an entire show without blowing your voice--I'm your gal! As long as students exhibit a willingness to try and to learn, then I'm more than willing to go the extra mile in my teaching. I just want to see genuine effort. Because I cater to all experience levels, I like to focus on individual goals of the student and build on those.

The biggest thing that I hope to give my students, is confidence. Whether or not music becomes a career for them, or just something to help get them through their day-- my goal is to show them that they can learn something new, they can accomplish things that they never thought they could do, they can sing for friends, join a band, play a challenging song, sing the high note they never thought they'd hit. If I can, anyone can. It's not about being perfect. Being perfect is overrated. It's about the passion behind the performance.

With that said, it's also about practice. Practicing builds the skills needed to keep that confidence alive. Then the more confidence you have, the more you say-- "Let's go for it. Let's try," the more you'll learn and the more skills you'll build. They feed off of each other. One can't survive long without the other.

*** Studio Equipment ***

I provide everything. If there is a particular piece that you want to work on that I don't have, I ask that you provide that.

*** Specialties ***
Classically trained, but I've also done a lot of musical theatre and have a strong background there. I do play guitar and bass, specializing in rock/folk and pop styles. I've taken tap and jazz from the age of 3 until I was 17 to help with Musical Theatre performance.

Suzie is extremely knowledgeable

Suzie is an amazing teacher! I am so impressed with her knowledge of music! In just the short time I've been taking voice lessons I can feel my voice getting stronger. She has taught me the correct way of breathing, projecting and standing. She's always giving me positive feedback, which is so helpful. I would recommend Suzie to anyone who is serious about taking voice lessons!

Susan is an amazing teacher

I haven't had too many classes with Susan but already I feel more confident in my voice. She has taught me so much about the correct way to breathe and the way to keep the right tone while you sing. I thought that taking lessons with someone over skype wouldn't be very effective but I was totally wrong because Susan is so prepared and sends you warm ups and also instrumental music for the song you are going to work on before your lesson. She makes sure to give positive comments as well as critiques so you won't feel uncomfortable or feel like you're a bad singer. I am so happy that I picked Susan and I would recommend her to anyone!!

Barry J.

Yucaipa, CA

About Barry

With many years of experience in both piano and vocal performance in Los Angeles and in England and my teaching in the Inland Empire, my students experience a rich and rewarding time of learning.

I received my formal education in piano performance from the Royal Academy Of Music in London and in Rhodesia. I also attended the Kwanagoma College Of music in Rhodesia and studied organ under the famous Dr. Olaff Axelson of Germany.

I also attended the University Of Redlands where I studied piano pedagogy.

I studied voice with Suzann Luckather of the Alhambra Academy Of Music in Los Ang
eles and also with Maestra Marya Basaraba, director of the California Philharmonic 200 voice chorus.

I further studied with the international vocal coach and concert pianist, Armin Gazulamian.

My current vocal coach is the world famous tenor, Guiltiero Negrini of the Metropolitan Opera House New York.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am easy to get along with and am a very patient teacher. I expect all my students to do music theory and technique. If a student has a natural ability to play by ear I help them develop their talent. I also teach improvisation to those students who have the natural ability to play by ear.

I use several different curriculum but prefer Piano Adventures.
My lesson plan includes the following books- piano, theory, technique, performance and some selected sheet music. After a three to six month period, most students are confident enough to play in a performance and are able to read notes and have an understanding of the keyboard.

Voice lessons include breath control, vocalizing, stretching your voice range to its maximum and singing songs from Broadway to Disney to Classical.

All students are encouraged to participate in two recitals a year. One in the Spring and one in December.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Private studio with a grand piano, metronome, music stand and chairs and mirrors with a sitting area for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
Piano or Keyboard

*** Specialties ***
I teach most piano methods available such as Alfred, John Thompson, Piano Adventures, Bastien, etc.

I teach mostly classical and opera, also Broadway and popular in both piano and voice.

I was very fortunate to be able to take my first acting lessons with Mara Madison. Her and her husband provided a very supportive and encouraging environment to someone with no acting experience or background. Mara is very knowledgeable and well prepared for each class. She gave me helpful advice and encouragement, as well as material to take home and study for future classes.
