Cody M.

Santa Ana, CA

About Cody

So, what is the "right way" to sing? Well, there's more than one answer. Having performed in, and taught various genres (including but not limited to jazz, musical theatre, opera, pop, barbershop, A-Capella, and do-wop), I have encountered countless ideas on what people think the correct technique is. Many find it far too difficult to coordinate the seemingly overwhelming technicalities that can accompany "correct" vocal use. I am proud to say that I have come across the best combination of tools and a straight-forward approach to vastly improving your abilities and overall vocal health. I am confident that it is the easiest and most efficient way to get the results you're looking for. I will help you preserve your voice as well to achieve the most important thing - longevity.

READ THE BREAKDOWN.

Cody is a great producer and a great guy - both are equally important in creating the best recording experience. Some of his attributes are best expanded upon with bullet-points.

HUMBLE.
This is hugely important. There is not a pretentious bone in his body. Cody is great at what he does but is not afraid to ask for help from people who might know more about whatever aspect of the music creation process specific to the artist. There is no “I’m the producer and I know more than you” attitude. Instead, his attitude is very much of equality where both parties understand the strengths that they bring to the table.

PATIENT.
Sometimes I have a lot of ideas - or none at all. Cody would bear with my A.D.D. moments in the studio when dealing with ideas that I sometimes couldn't communicate. Instead of writing my ideas off, he instead worked with me until we achieved exactly what I was trying to get at.

RESPECTFUL.
Being an artist himself, Cody has immense respect for the artist and their creations.

UNDERSTANDING.
Cody’s understanding of all kinds of music lends to his fearlessness of exploring new genres - but it doesn't stop at exploring - he captures their essence. I've heard tracks he’s done that are R&B, indie-rock, country, EDM, etc. and its hard to imagine they were all from the same brain. If you wanted a Bollywood track, I’m sure he could give you one.

RESOURCEFUL.
Cody has ingenuity and is resourceful. He would never tell me what *works with my kind of music* or what kind of instrument I would *need for the song* - if we wanted a certain sound, we’d make it - out of wax paper and water bottles if necessary.

EFFICIENT.
Mostly I sat in awe and watched Cody click and move stuff.

COMMITTED.
Even when he didn't have to, Cody would work on my track in his free time meticulously making sure everything was how it should sound and also just to make sure there wasn't any territory we had overlooked.

And that's just naming a few.

All in all, Cody brings a child-like spirit of wonder to his sessions - where the song is not a job or a chore, but a new world waiting to be explored, full of possibilities waiting to be uncovered. And that excitedness and spirit of discovery is KEY to sustaining creativity in a studio environment. Not only does it make the whole process productive, it makes it FUN. Cody’s character bleeds into how he works and into what he creates and the final product reflects that.

So Helpful and Patient

Cody is one of the best voice teachers out there. Whether it's helping you get started on your first song, or helping you understand the basics of music theory, he is hands down one of the best voice teachers I have ever had. He is very patient, and within the first 5 minutes he will be able to tell what you need the most help on, sometimes without you even needing to say it. You will leave the lesson feeling fully accomplished and confident.

Awesome recording session!

I had such a pleasure working with Cody. He is so creative and wants the absolute best for his clients/students. I am a singer who sings a lot of Broadway and classical repertoire, and wanted to record a track that was more on the side of pop. I was nervous at first, but in just a couple of takes, Cody helped me find my pop voice and really made me feel at ease singing my vocals. He had me do a couple of cool tricks to really connect with what I was singing about and after that, everything clicked and I was letting myself be free with my new sound and Cody was so supportive and gave wonderful feedback. He's a great coach as well! I loved every idea he had.
I had so much fun in the studio and highly recommend working with him...I know I will again in the future.

Jacqueline G.

Orange, CA

About Jacqueline

I grew up in a home filled with music and art. I started playing when I was 7, and in 3rd grade joined my first choir. My parents were talented artists and musicians. Our home was filled with music. My father, an architect and builder, played classical guitar and entertained us after dinner and on the weekends. My brothers and sister picked up various instruments and eventually we made music together. I often was asked to accompany the choirs I sang with from 8th grade thru college. I also played the flute in the band and orchestra from 8th - 12th grades. I started teaching when I was 18 and continued lessons and performing in theatre and choirs. Now my children are becoming talented musicians; one at the guitar, the other on piano. I often gather my students for fun and relaxed "Piano ...

I found Nadia after calling and speaking to several voice teachers in the LA/OC area. All of her students speak incredibly high of her.

When I first started lessons with her, I had a new found love of classical music and wanted to continue exploring where my voice could go in that arena. Nadia has been extremely open and supportive of everything I have wanted to try and has given me great repertoire suggestions when I simply had no clue.

After a little over a year with her, the range in my voice has definitely increased and my vocal quality has improved tremendously. It's amazing how different my voice sounds today compared to when I first started with her.

The work that I do at each lesson is well worth the money. I never leave without breaking a sweat!

I'€™ve known Nadia for years as both a fine performer and a great teacher and voice trouble-shooter. Her knowledge of technique is as deep as her understanding of the artistry of singing.

I'd say I'€™m an advanced singer. I'€™ve sung publicly for years a range of popular songs with a band and I'€™ve performed classical repertoire.

Many singers find The Star Spangled Banner challenging and when I was asked to sing the national anthem before a convention of thousands of people, I sought out Nadia'€™s expertise.

I had concerns about my voice being injured due to chronic illness and perhaps relying on improper technique to compensate for the resulting problems. I had trouble accessing certain parts of my range.

When I took my apprehensions to Nadia, she made quick work of the problems. She first did an evaluation by running me through various exercises in order to pinpoint where in my range issues might exist. She worked patiently with me and taught me techniques that helped me return to my full vocal range. And I'€™m most grateful to Nadia for setting my mind at ease about the shape my voice was in and restoring my confidence to perform in front of a large audience.

I have been singing my entire life but I essentially lost the ability to sing after suffering an injury to my larynx. When I asked my Dr. to recommend someone to help me regain my voice, he gave me Nadia's information. I am so very grateful he did. Nadia is by far the BEST vocal coach I have ever had, and her talent and knowledge of vocal technique is unsurpassed.

I am constantly learning how to improve my voice, increase my range, and increase my breath. She always gives me a challenge to work on and keeps it interesting every lesson. I feel extremely blessed to have found her because honestly, without her, I don't even know where my voice would be today! She is simply amazing.

Eulis is one in a million - he gives helpful constructive criticism while making you feel confident and at ease. As someone who can be rattled by being vulnerable in front of people, I MUCH appreciate this! On top of his knowledge and skills, his demeanor is also phenomenal. Playful yet professional, friendly yet respectful of boundaries. I'm thrilled I've found him and can't wait to see where my next lessons take me.
