Incredible Sacramento Singers!

By Elizabeth S. - Sacramento Singing Teacher

Hello, my name is Elizabeth S. and I teach singing lessons in Sacramento. It gives me such joy to be able to help others accomplish their goals in singing and help them succeed. There are so many benefits to taking singing lessons. I want to share with you what it is like to be a singer and teach singing lessons in Sacramento.

I am currently on staff at New Song Church in Lincoln, where I am the music associate. It is such a great opportunity. There, I am able to lead choir rehearsals, teach parts and lead worship. I graduated from William Jessup University in Rocklin, where I had so many incredible singing experiences - one of which included singing for former First Lady Laura Bush! I have been involved in many areas in the Sacramento music scene. One of the areas where I am involved is in an arts competition for teens, where I will serve as an adjudicator. I look forward to doing this every year; it is such an awesome experience to give teens advice they can use to help expand and develop their singing abilities.

There are many different music scenes and venues for singers in Sacramento, one of which is the Best of Broadway. This is a nonprofit organization which allows kids, teens and adults to audition for and perform in live theater shows. Every year, they do a musical review of a collection of Broadway songs. There are also select members that participate in other smaller productions throughout the year. The Music Circus, another Broadway production which pays its singers, is another great opportunity for singers to participate in and a great goal to strive for if you are a singer in Sacramento.

Teaching singing lessons in Sacramento is both challenging and rewarding for me. I have the opportunity to help others reach their goals and succeed in life, and this job also allows me to be a stay at home mom with my six month old baby girl. I am a very positive and uplifting teacher. I believe that no good ever comes from being harsh and condescending to my students. I do challenge my students in order for them to receive growth in their musical abilities; however, I always put a positive spin on everything I teach. One of the greatest benefits of teaching is having a student come back excited and uplifted because they were able to accomplish something they never thought they could.

I firmly believe that no one is ever too young or too old to enhance their musical ability. So if you have a desire to expand your singing abilities, then I encourage you to take the next step and challenge yourself in singing lessons. You will probably be pleasantly surprised in what you find inside of you. If you are interested in singing lessons in Sacramento, give us a call and begin your journey!

A wonderful experience

I took vocal lessons from David. I had taken some singing lessons when I was younger, but needed to brush up. I sing in a band, and David helped my song performance. I will be taking more lessons in the future.

JoAnn R.

Carmichael, CA

In today’s world singers need to know how to perform many styles of music. Many opera singers also sing Broadway and jazz, and all Broadway singers need to sing traditional, jazz, swing, pop, and maybe rock and folk styles. To do this, you need strong physical skills to sing belt, mixed and legit voice. You need strong high, middle and low notes and the ability to sing loud and soft and to modulate from bright to mellow. You need to know your instrument inside and out - how it functions and how to make it work safely, reliably and with good results.

I am unique because of my combined musical and medical backgrounds. In addition to my graduate and undergraduate musical training and extensive musical experience, I was a surgeon and taught anatomy and physiology. Part of my medical training included studying the mechanics of how the body works and its application.
In addition to the traditional methods such as imagery and mimicry that all singing teachers use, I will help

About JoAnn

Your lessons are designed to help you develop the skills and confidence you need to successfully perform in public. I work hard to prepare your lessons and I ask my students to invest daily time working on skills studied at their lessons. Performing music requires the patient integration of multiple skills over time, however, the rewards are BIG.

During your lessons you will receive instruction in skills needed to sing or play the cello as well as musical skills including rhythm, melody, harmony and style. Because there is a lot to learn, I encourage you to consider 45 or 60 minute les
sons, which I offer at substantially reduced rates to make them more affordable for you.

I continually update my teaching methods by attending workshops and master classes and I incorporate my knowledge of human anatomy and function, to help you perform with minimal strain. Also, I incorporate internet resources in your lessons to keep them interesting and up to date.

What will your lessons be like?
At your first lesson we will explore and name the parts of your instrument (voice or cello). We'll talk about what you would like to learn, set attainable goals and select songs that you will be successful learning.

In subsequent lessons you will warm up with scales and exercises, using common intervals with basic rhythms to improve your technical abilities and gain musical skills and knowledge, such as hearing pitches and intervals and keeping with the beat. This will also help you learn to read music.

Singers will learn to use breathing to coordinate with your vocal folds to make a beautiful tone and sing on pitch, relax your throat and tongue to create resonant chambers, shape your mouth and tongue to color the tone, and use your tongue and lips to form the words.

Cellists will learn to transfer your body weight into your cello to produce a mellow tone, placing your hands and arms on the cello and bow in a relaxed and balanced manner to allow you to play smoothly and in tune and to prepare you to produce a lovely vibrato. Since cellos don't have frets, you will also learn to locate each note on the cello but just a few notes at a time - until you know them all.

You will learn to use your technical skills and knowledge to create musical phrases that sound beautiful and authentic and are fun to perform and listen to. You will need to practice simple skills and phrases repeatedly until they become habit. I will lend you my kind and patient support to help you through the bumps in the road.

Not sure how to practice at home?
To support your practice at home you will: Receive a recording of each lesson to practice with; Learn simple exercises you can do at home; Learn to create and use simple backup tracks of your songs to learn to hear rhythm and harmony; Learn how to use your computer at home to get feedback for pitch, and tone quality.

Nervous about performing?
When you are comfortable I will provide opportunities to perform in student programs performing for friends and families.

You will have opportunities to participate and perform in workshops which include performance opportunities, lectures, demonstrations and Master Classes with nationally recognized teachers and performers. And students can earn Certificate of Merit which are recognized by universities.

I took voice lessons from JoAnn for one year and recommend her to anyone looking to improve their singing ability. I improved the quality and sound of my voice as well as my confidence. She also taught music theory and was very good at interpreting lyrics/songs to bring the music to the next level.

JoAnn is very professional and dedicated to the art of teaching music. She explained concepts in a way that I could understand and apply. She has a firm grasp on the anatomy of your voice and throat and uses that knowledge to design effective lessons and exercises to improve your singing.

She also records every session so you can go back and listen to the lesson and your performance when you are at home. If you desire, she provides opportunities to perform and practice singing in front of an audiences.

JoAnn is fun to work with and I enjoyed all of my sessions with her. Again, I highly recommend her to anyone looking to improve their singing ability.

Melissa F.

Sacramento, CA

About Melissa

I have been studying and performing music for the majority of my life, starting with piano in the third grade. I started singing in choirs in high school and continued studying voice throughout college. I have a classical background and moved to jazz voice as an undergraduate at California State University of Sacramento. I recently completed my Masters Degree in Vocal Performance in 2015!

*** Lesson Details ***
Teaching music gives me joy! I create a positive and encouraging environment for students to gain confidence in their performance abilities. Every student is different and I approa
ch each lesson accordingly in order to accommodate each student's needs and expectations.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, microphone, sound system, music stand, sitting area for parent(s) when needed. Students are expected to purchase their own books which are required for piano lessons. I can supply photo copies for the first couple of lessons until books are delivered.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a metronome for lessons, but each student should acquire their own for practicing purposes. Students should provide a stereo, preferably with an iPod adapter, to listen to musical examples, and a piano for voice or their own instrument for instrumental lessons. I can provide an extra ukulele for lessons, but students should have their own for practicing purposes.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz voice, teaching students jazz theory and improvisation as well as stylistic techniques.

Kevin B.

Sacramento, CA

I've been teaching voice for 1 year and my students have gone on to become much more competent singers. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to establish a sound that is good for you and as time goes on you'll be able to hone in and make that sound really work. I also have Audio-Technica ATR2500-USB Cardioid Condenser USB Microphone so we can record your lessons, or make recordings of a piece. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Kevin

I've been teaching private lessons for the past year and am very passionate about my students - making you succeed is my life's blood and whatever your goal is, that's my goal too! I've performed in many different musicals and operas in Sacramento, and been hired to sing professionally both as a soloist and a chorus singer. I went to California State University, Sacramento and earned my Bachelor of Arts in Music in 2015. I've since been very active in the music theatre scene in Sacramento, and my music theatre students love me! I'd love to see what we can do to make you a great singer!

Proper Singing Posture - What You Need to Know
Before you learn how to breathe, sing, or play any kind of instrument correctly, you need to ensure that you're creating the proper posture with your body.
