Taking Singing Lessons in San Diego

By Priscilla M. - San Diego Voice Teacher

Hello there! Have you always wanted to take voice lessons in San Diego? I'm Priscilla, and I have a music studio here in San Diego where I teach both singing and piano lessons. I cannot remember a time when I have not been immersed in music. In fact, I started playing piano at the age of 3! I have a Bachelor of Music degree from Wheaton Conservatory of Music and a Master of Music degree from University of Redlands here in California. I started vocal coaching in college and have worked with singers ever since. I have done everything from coaching pop and blues singers to working as a Musical Director for theatre.

I love teaching singing lessons because singing is such an incredible way for us to express ourselves. I love watching my students blossom and gain confidence as we work togethe
r, laugh together, and celebrate as they become the singers they have always dreamed of becoming.

We have all styles and ages of singers here in San Diego, from future Broadway stars to Jazz, Pop and Blues singers. One of my young students is aspiring to sing the National Anthem at a Chargers game someday! San Diego is a great place for singing; whether at one of the many piano bars around town, belting it out in a karaoke lounge, or singing in a musical with one of the numerous theatre groups, the opportunities abound here in beautiful San Diego.

Come join us and take singing lessons in San Diego! TakeLessons has a variety of voice instructors great for kids, adults and everyone in between. I love helping my students discover what they can become in the world of singing. You may only be a song away from becoming a terrific singer yourself!

Betsy F. San Diego, CA

About Betsy

Music is the biggest passion in my life. I love being able to share that gift with my students, and look forward to their progress as much as my own. I continue to grow and develop as a musician, and love connecting with people through music. My students all learn to love and appreciate music, theory and performing as I share my knowledge and expertise. I have degrees in Violin, Viola and Vocal Performance, that I earned while on full scholarship for music. I started violin as a young child with the Suzuki Method and later added viola. I began singing professional gigs while still in high school, and was the youngest member ever with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra Chorus at 17. I also have extensive experience singing in non-classical groups and bands and am comfortable ...

Betsy has been my daughters coach for about a year now, and she is wonderful. My daughter has learned so much in the past year, and now she's interested in singing, thanks to Betsy. Betsy has a wonderful spirit, she knows how to communicate on their level, and she makes them feel as though they can do anything. I also like her because she encourages kids to follow their dreams, and to do the right things, and we all know that it takes a village to raise a child. I would highly recommend Betsy!

By far the most wonderful singing instructor I've ever encountered. Salli is very thorough in her teaching but she also makes it VERY FUN! Always encouraging at every lesson which in turn nurtured confidence within myself and my voice. Salli truly cares about the success of each and every one of her students. Always willing to go beyond the call! One instance of this great example was an evening of Karaoke. Salli knew I was deathly afraid of being in front of an audience so to build up my confidence she decided to join me on stage. WOW!!! Studying with Salli goes beyond the Teacher-Student relationship. I also gained a life long friend. I can't thank her enough and am forever grateful to her for always believing in me.

I have been singing since I was a child however never had any proper vocal training until I started taking vocal lessons with Salli. She taught me many helpful techniques with singing from breathing mechanics to how to accurately mouth the words I am singing to project my notes better as well as many other techniques. Over the years I have used her techniques when recording and performing and I have seen my vocal abilities enhance and become way better than they have ever been. Salli is very professional and very knowledgeable in music and singing, and also a very sweet and sympathetic instructor. She really wants to help you perfect your art and will make sure it does happen, as I have seen it happen with me! She is also very patient and you can always discuss with her what you need to work on. I HIGHLY recommend Salli as your musical instructor, she truly enjoys her craft and loves to help her students.
Francis R. San Diego, CA

If you made it to adulthood and simply cannot carry a tune or think you just sound bad, I'd love to help! If you are looking for singing lessons for your child, I'd be happy to work with you as long as you create an environment at home where singing is rewarded and encouraged!

Singing is fun! Everyone has their own unique instrument, and not everyone chooses to use it. I'll tell you a secret: I've never met one person in my life that is truly tone deaf. Matching a pitch is a skill, not something you're born with. Let's do it!

About Francis

Hi everyone! I'm a hard-working musician with a background in live performance, songwriting, composition, and home recording. I want to help you perform the music you love, whether you're playing to your family, your webcam, or a 15,000 seat arena. I have been teaching private music lessons since 2007. I am a graduate of UCSD, where I completed my bachelor's degree in music theory and composition. I have taken years of private lessons, played bass, guitar, and mandolin in local and touring bands, and released three albums of original music. I want to make your goals accessible. *** Lesson Details *** I focus on making lessons fun for my students. I emphasize the importance of practicing on your own and building confidence by performing live and/or writing your own songs. I love ...

Francis has been just fantastic as my first ever singing teacher. He completely made me feel at ease, provided me with material to practice in between lessons, and is just a genuinely nice guy to be around. He provided good and intuitive help to improve my singing, and I fell I have improved lightyears in just a few weeks.

Francis is a fantastic instructor. He is very patient and knowledgeable. My friends asked me to play bass guitar in their rock band so I needed to learn fast. Francis taught me the basics and quickly moved on to tips and tricks to help me advance. I am having a blast.

Danielle L. San Diego, CA

As the creator and producer of San Diego IndieFest and Say It Records, I have a unique understanding of the industry, and love to share that with my students.

It's paramount to me that each student's lesson be customized to her / his specific goals and needs. Whether those are for personal enrichment or for professional aspirations, your lesson will be personalized according to what's important to you.

I LOVE to teach, and appreciate my wee ones just as much as my elders...those who consider themselves "tone deaf" as much as my advanced students. As far as Special Needs go - I feel we *ALL* have special needs....every child and every adult! ;)

About Danielle

Hello Students / Parents! I specialize in providing a fun, inspiring and safe space for each student to reach their goals – whether that be for the novice singer whose been wrongfully told they “shouldn't sing,” the more experienced singer looking to branch out into doing more with their music or doing it professionally, or the budding songwriter, actor or speaker looking to develop the talent and drive they feel within them. I always remember the encouragement, patience and inspiration I received from my best teachers, and strive to provide exactly that to my own students. I sing and teach most vocal styles, with the exception of opera, and utilize our studio to create a supportive, empowering experience singing, writing and recording. I absolutely love to teach both children

Danielle is one of the most kind-hearted, positive women I know. I have been taking lessons with her for about 4 months now and she has really taught me a lot about myself and getting over my insecurities about my voice tone and singing in front of others. Her knowledge of the music industry has also really helped put the process all in perspective for me. Being somewhat of a closet singer, I look forward to her guidance each week to help bring this talent and passion for singing out of me!

What Are the Best Songs to Sing to Show Off Your Vocal Range?
Many singing teachers agree that one of the most alarming things today is tuning in to television talent competitions and seeing nine-year-olds singing opera. Not only are the arias generally age-inappropriate, but they make vocal demands on the singer that often requires a training period longer than the child has been alive!
