A Note From Francesca:
My official bio is listed below, but perhaps more important than the things I have done are the things that I am doing. I am now approaching my 15th year of teaching. I love to teach! I carry a minimum of 30 students, but have carried more then 80 at one time, and have never once complained. My waiting list cycles based on my performance schedule and recording schedule. If you don't see a time that works for you, feel free to reach out and see if we can find something that works, as an artist, my schedule can be quite full but also quite flexible. I love my students, I get to do what I love all day and I am sure it shows. I have a blast discovering new ways to experience music with "my kids." I call all of my students kids even though most of my studio consists of young adults. I try to have a young air in my classes at all times as it just makes the process so much more fun for everyone.
I've seen it all in through years: kids, adults, beginners and advanced students. I am personally very interested in being the most versatile musician possible and I love being able to share my knowledge with my students. We can study anything and everything from Classical Guitar to Electric Guitar Shredding; from Opera to Kelly Clarkson; from Tchaikovsky to Little Richard! I love getting students to dabble in little bits of all genres, often getting even the most skeptical student singing and playing comfortably in a matter of just a few weeks. My students will be able to read music for their favorite tunes and understand how to improvise from the start. Once you come in, you'll be hooked. You will have fun because I am having fun!
I encourage all of my students to share their favorite music with me. It affords me the opportunity to learn more about what they desire to learn and what types of music they enjoy. We will learn with your music often. After all, isn't that why you are coming to see me? I will introduce you to new sounds and styles, but will foster your love for music, and do my best to never force my music on students. I feel I learn as much from my students when I truly listen to them and their music as they do from me.
On site lessons are available for artists recording demos, rehearsing bands and setting up their own studios.
On a side note, I love seeing students at my shows! I am a full time musician and can be seen playing with my band, in my own solo project and in various choral settings. Check out my website and see what I do outside of the classroom. My students get a kick out of the idea that they can buy a CD with their teachers face on it, and to be honest, so do I. Many of my students have their own music out on iTunes and YouTube. Many more can be seen performing around town in solo projects and professional ensembles.
*** Studio Equipment *** Pianos, Guitars, Basses, Amps, Computer, Monitors, Music, Recording Software, Drum Kit, Studio and Performance Mics, everything we need! Its like Disneyland for musicians!

*** Specialties *** Francesca on Artist Development:
I feel obligated to share my joys and experiences-
Not many people have been blessed to sing alongside as many renowned musicians as I have - I've been lucky to be welcomed in both the commercial and classical worlds and they have both afforded me venues to use my voice and express the most vital corners of my soul. To find your purpose through art is one of the greatest gifts you can receive. And to be able to do that in front of thousands of music lovers live or over the airwaves is a surreal experience.
It's funny, my classical cronies are impressed to hear my stories of packed rock gigs at the House Blues and national touring festivals like Warped Tour and my rock buddies ask to hear my stories of Disney Hall performances with the LA Phil. To be honest, Iâ'm impressed to be there too. Sometimes, I look around and think, how did I get here? How did I get lucky enough to live the dream, to find a home in music?
I've been luckier than most. I've had GREAT mentors who have always pushed me forward and shared their wisdom freely with me. Part of the classical musician's central goal is to educate. That's a value I carry into my rock projects and production studio. Work smarter, not harder. Take the needed skills, create art, teach others how to do the same thing, move forward together to live happier, more productive lives filled with purpose.
I have come to be known as one of the top Musical Mentors & Artist Development Experts on the west coast. A behind the scenes- diva of dream building with the skills to push artists to the next level- the ace up the sleeve of many of today working talents. In my award winning studio, I spend time coaching the young voices and faces of today hottest TV shows seen on ABC, Nickelodeon, and the Disney Channel, but I still have a soft spot for up and comers in the indie music world. Having written and performed my own music for decades, I not only lived the collegiate experience of the elite classical performer singing for presidents and world leaders, but also the dingy road of the rock musician who's showed one night to a packed stadium full of fans and showed up another, thousands of miles from home to play to a coffee shop of 5 people. Music has brought me to nearly every continent and introduced me to some of the most talented and diverse people you can imagine. I feel compelled to share these experiences with those around me so that they my develop the vision, the salt and the skills to persevere.
I am, above all, an artist & creator- living the dream, helping people- like you find their voice and write their songs. Turning raw emotion into art.
Each one of us has a story, our truth. Being an artist is about finding ourselves, our song and expressing it publicly so that we may heal, so that we may grow.
It doesn't take a ton of experience to write a hit song. It doesn't take a fancy education or a family line of talent (though it can help). We can all find our voice, our place in the spotlight, what it takes is the courage to take the next step forward.
You've already had the genius to be in the right place at the right time. Here. If you've made it this far, chances are you are smart enough, hungry enough and ready to take the plunge.
Inside my studio you will find the help you seek. I can impart you with proven techniques to strengthen your sound, develop your tone through strong technique, develop strategies to share your art and develop a plan to turn pipe dreams into reality. Some desire to sing on the worlds brightest stages, others strive to lead others through teaching themselves, and some wish for nothing more than to experience music in a confident manner among friends. All can be lead on this personal journey of the artistic soul and all can make their offering to the musical gods. There is a place at the table for anyone seeking an answer.

I took a wild chance finding Francesca online, not knowing anyone who'd worked with her and not knowing whether lessons online would feel right. but I was more than amazed. Francesca is so articulate, enthusiastic, encouraging, intelligent, tuned in, and just plain musical - the lesson time flew by so fast and I hardly noticed that we weren't in the same room (in fact we were 3,000 miles apart!). She's not a musician who happens to teach, she's a truly gifted and accomplished teacher. I'm very excited about all I can learn from her!

Tasha is a classically trained soprano who enjoys singing and teaching all styles of music. As her student, you can expect lessons to be fun and stress-free. Tasha loves nothing more then helping people sing better and form a new love of music through singing. She will teach you fundamental singing techniques as well as how to blend drama and performance into your singing to create a rich creative experience. Tasha holds her M.M. in Voice Performance from Indiana University and her B.M. from Northwestern University.
*** Lesson Details *** Tasha tailors her lessons to suit the needs of each
individual student. Open communication is a key part of being in her studio. Ask questions! Tasha also believes that singing should always be fun. In fact, the better you get at singing, the more fun it becomes. Students will be able to see progress on a weekly basis provided that they are practicing what they have learned in lessons on their own time. Tasha will give you the tools you need to be able to approach music and singing with ease. Along with singing, Tasha can also teach you basic music theory and foreign language diction.

Tasha is a great teacher. She is very positive and enthusiastic. She made a great connection with my 12 year old daughter. She has a beautiful voice and seemed to bring out the best in my daughter's voice. (I know nothing about singing technique, so really can't evaluate that.) She was always on top of scheduling and make-ups if she or my daughter had lesson conflicts. Tasha has a wonderful energy and puts a lot of effort into engaging her students. We will miss her.

Tasha is wonderful and truly one of the best instructors we've ever come across in our 10 years of having private vocal lessons. What she brings out in her students is amazing. Improvement is seen in each and every session. On top of her abilities to teach and inspire, she's very personable and respectful with her students which allows for a comfortable learning environment and puts her students at ease. My daughters absolutely love her!

Tasha was amazing !! Olivia learned so much from her about voice control, reading music, a very comprehensive music lesson every time. She and Olivia had a great connection and it showed in Olivia's weekly progress. Highly recommend Tasha to anyone looking for a voice coach.

Hello Students / Parents!
I specialize in providing a fun, inspiring and safe space for each student to reach their goals â whether that be for the novice singer whose been wrongfully told they âshouldn't sing,â 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 and adults and look forward to learning how to best support each one of my students in their individual path toward realizing their potential.
Here's a bit about my background and musical experience:
â¢ Bachelors of Fine Arts degree (Theatre/Voice) from United States International University â Graduated Valedictorian â¢ Chula Vista School of Creative and Performing Arts â Graduated Valedictorian Workshops and studying with Bill Doyle, Roy Mote, Andrew Barnicle, Jack Tygett, Leanne Summers, among others.
"After seeing Danielle, I was impressed with her intensity as a performer. Her ability to get behind a lyric was stunning, she lives every line. As an artistic performer, I've yet to see better." -Tony Ferguson / Interscope Records: No Doubt, Bush, Fisher
My original band, Danielle and The Masses, has been recording and performing live since 2001. We are endorsed by Ani Difranco, The Black Eyed Peas, The Bruce Hornsby Band, and have shared the stage with artists as Jamie Foxx, CAKE, Metric, En Vogue, David Byrne, Berlin, Margaret Cho, Cyndi Lauper, Jonatha Brooke, Beth Hart, Semi Precious Weapons and more.
I have written and performed music and voice over for Ace Ventura, Nutty Professor, VH1, various TV shows and independent documentaries, Eveoke Dance Theatre, among others, as well as having recorded eight professional CDs of various styles on various record labels.
For over ten years, my record / production company, Say It Records has been producing socially conscious music events throughout San Diego and Southern California that promote independent music, film, art, community and human rights. I also co-own Durga Sound, a teaching and production studio, with producer Alicia Champion, as well as San Diego IndieFest, a powerful community event which promotes and supports music, film, art and civic engagement.
I have a great time utilizing my contacts in the industry to help my students get work/ press / entrance into the schools of their choice, etc. For example, I'm happy to report that just last year we were able to book eight musicians on GLEE, as well as lots more in other capacities including using their music in commercials and film and helping them get cast in local theatre and accepted into arts-centered schools.
*** Lesson Details *** I start on the first lesson by becoming clear about what the new student's goals and desires are â from there, we start developing technique to achieve those goals along with having fun right away doing what they came for - singing, writing, voice over, acting or using a combination of these things be it for professional purposes or personal fulfillment. Every lesson is personally customized to meet the specific goals of each student. As a teacher, I'm encouraging and fun, passionate and positive. While I'm definitely not "strict", I do appreciate focus and drive. However, I often work with people who have special needs and are working on developing those very things. I'm especially good at helping people through progress plateaus, roadblocks, stage fright, loss/ stress. Using music as a means of release and healing - for both kids and adults - is something I do a lot of and am very comfortable with.
As far as technique is concerned, I focus on utilizing posture, correct breathing and developing relaxed, strong support, so that the muscles are developed properly and without stress, enabling the student's voice to constantly grow while also steering clear of the injury that can accompany the straining that often happens when singing without proper technique.
I strongly encourage students to record their lessons on a mobile device so they can practice easily on their own, and so they eventually have a record of how far they've grown. We mostly use tracks to develop repertoire, prepare for auditioning and performances, and to have fun singing the music that excites each student the most.

*** Specialties *** Using music, writing and voice as a means of expressing yourself, growing as a performance artist, coping in challenging times, as well as a means of going professional and earning income are all areas I specialize in. Utilizing proper technique and learning how to sing / speak safely is also an area I focus on a great deal.
Learning precisely what each student wants is the key factor in my decision on how to achieve their goals. For example, using Speech Level Singing is definitely entrenched in my teaching, but I may not highlight it as much for those who want a more classical sound.
I definitely excel with the following: first timers, very young kids, students working through stage fright, artists looking to develop their own original project, those seeking growth in their process of writing / recording / performing, those who are interested in using music and / or writing as therapy as well as with amateurs who've always wanted to do something musical but who think they are "too old" or too "untalented/short/tall/ fill in the blank" to try. I believe we all have something to say with our lives - finding the voice within you can be an incredibly powerful and transformative experience!

Danielle is my daughter’s singing teacher for a while now. Danielle has several strengths, but her main strength, from my observations is her ability to motivate students. She’s always sincerely interested in her students’ progress and encourages my daughter to try her best. She has a great sense of humor and maintains a real positive attitude. Also, and most important Danielle has very strong vocal talent.
In my opinion Danielle displays the qualities that make a teacher successful, dependable, motivated, and in tune with the needs of her students.
My daughter is highly motivated to continue her singing classes with Danielle and I’m very appreciative of Danielle’s style of teaching and patience with Sam.

There is so much to say about Danielle and it is all good. She is a great teacher and makes it easy for you to feel comfortable. Singing with her has definitely gave me more confidence and I can tell the difference in my voice since I started. I am so glad to have her as my teacher because she is a great person inside and out. I feel like I am closer to my dream of being a singer because of her. I would definitely recommend her to any and everybody. Danielle is an amazing teacher with a great spirit!!!!!

I first came across Danielle working on her home. After finding out she teaches singing my eyes lit up like a kid in a candy store! Where do I sign up. I've been playing acoustic guitar for 7 years and enjoy writing songs only thing missing was my voice to sing them. I have always thought people with great voices had them to begin with, wrong in most cases. She has helped me so much from the basic level of proper breathing, voice control and song writing. Her amazing partner Alicia is right there to help produce your songs at a professional quality! Be aware Danielle will get into your heart and soul and you might need some kleenex! Thx Danielle for getting me out of the singing closet! :)
Learn to sing solos, duets and group numbers. Get into the character who sings the song. Enjoy to fun of Fiddler, the romance of Man of La Mancha, the beautiful songs of The Sound of Music and the excitement of Westside Story. Character parts and group numbers as well. I directed every part of stage production as Department Chair of Performing Arts at Mercy High School in Red Bluff CA. In addition I can teach you how to write musical scores, original scripts and songs for student productions. Our production of West Side Story sold out every performance and received 5 star reviews. I have the sung Musical Theater numbers in San Francisco Bay area, San Diego, Maui, and Florida venues for nearly years.
I am willing to travel to you all over San Diego, Orange and Los Angeles Counties. Music should be fun and lessons should focus on what you want to do with your improved abilities. Some students want to sing better in school choir or musical programs. Some are trying to sing or play guitar for Church or Synagogue. Others have their eye on Disney careers, rock/pop bands, in short being professionals. What is your dream? I will help you move closer to reaching that dream!!! I am a graduate of USD with a B.A. in Philosophy. I also hold a Masters degree, Teaching Credential Curriculum fr
om Chapman University, Doctoral Studies at Catholic University of America in Washington D.C. I studied voice, guitar and piano classes beginning in grade school, high school, college and post-graduate training as well. I studied voice in San Diego with Robert Austin, in San Francisco with Richard Nichol in the Garcia-Marchesi Institute. I sang with the Palm Beach Florida Opera Company. I am a tenor with a 3.5 octave range. I also sang and performed in Musicals and Operas and Sacred Oratorios from Maui to Florida. I teach voice (beginner to professional levels) and guitar (acoustic and electric: beginners to Intermediate). I have been teaching private lessons for 7 years. I also offer voice or guitar classes at St. Cecelia's School of Music in the San Fernando Valley and St Catherine of Siena Parish School in Reseda. I have students in the San Diego area as well as South Los Angeles County, and in the San Fernando Valley I am the proud "dad" of two high school aged children who are excellent students! I focus my instruction on "correct" breathing and proper singing to protect your voice from injury and produce a beautiful tone and wonderful performance. I teach guitar chords, reading standard musical notation as well as tablature.

My daughter has taken lessons with at least 5 other voice teachers over the past 4 years, and Daniel is by far the best fit. He is encouraging and knowledgeable. The difference between a song we think she has down, and the song after she works on it with Daniel is just amazing. She wants to sing and play bass professionally, so we tap into Daniel's expertise about the music industry and bring songs for auditions, solos, performances, etc. to him with no advance warning and he teaches her how to approach them. He consciously expands her range on the low side as well as high side. Most importantly, he is very professional, kind and supportive about life, not just in music. And, of course, there is his amazing voice that can shake our house if we ask him to sing something!
Express yourself! Learn to use your voice as a natural, comfortable instrument to express your creativity. Students will learn how to expand their vocal range, increase vocal projection, power and agility, how to read notation and phrasing, how to read and sing in foreign languages, how to access the power of breathing, how to act and deliver a song's message, how to audition for musical and theatre opportunities, and how to stay calm under performance pressure. Bring in scene studies or choose appropriate monologue material, and learn to deliver your scenes with emotion and connection.

"Everything you need and more...
One of my biggest issues with voice teachers is that they try to strip you of what makes you, you!
From day one, Peter g
ot to know me and works from the inside out to produce a sound that was not only connected to breath but emotionally invested and honest! So many actor's lack this nowadays. This is so valuable as a musical theatre actor. Also, he allows you to "go there" and provides a safe environment to do so.
Peter is willing to be patient and work with you long term. He was so invested in my work and reaching goals. He gives that extra bump of confidence I need and I always leave feeling great!
What is most profound... as a more classical musical theatre actor in a ever changing pop/rock world, I am able to confidently show up at an audition for a pop musical. He pulls this healthy pop/rock singing technique from the classical technique and it really works!
In terms of availability, he is flexible and worth every penny!"

"Fawn is a refreshing change and one of the best instructors we have ever known
After going through a barrage of music instructors, Fawn was a refreshing
change. Our family has been taking piano, voice, performance and songwriting lessons from Fawn for 3 years now. My husband, myself and our son and daughter are her students and we all adore her. She has a lovely spirit and kind heart. She pushes us each in our own individual ways to be the best we can each be, and she always checks in to see how we are doing on a personal level too. She is such a positive person, her energy could light up an entire city. I donât know any one that works harder. I think hearing her songs on the radio, seeing her perform and work hard at her own successful music career, as well as work hard at helping her students achieve their best is one of the things that motivates me to work harder. Fawnâs attitude is, âanything is possible if you believeâ. Not only do we believe, but we believe in her. She is the best candidate for the job and this household deeply appreciates her."
