Working with Michelle has been amazing! I was having trouble finding a teacher locally who could fit with my schedule and would really push me
vocally. She's helped me make incredible improvements in my singing voice in only a few months. Also, the fact that's in online and I can reschedule things easily has been amazing. We've rescheduled and adjusted many times and that has been so helpful. She's really encouraging and positive, while still pushing me and looking for areas where I can grow. Since I've worked with her, I have auditioned for and landed a role in a musical. It's been a blast and I can highly recommend Michelle!"

"Fun, Encouraging and Helpful!
Brianna was fantastic with my fourteen year old! She helped build up confidence, was very encouraging and made lessons fun.
She uses a variety of techniques to teach singing skills including speech-level singing by Seth Riggs. I highly recommend her for beginners as well as for people looking to record a demo."

"My 11 year old daughter has been working with Jessica for several months now. She is amazing!!! My daughter just started doing musical theatre at school a
nd I wanted a singing coach to help her to feel more comfortable on stage. Jessica not only has helped her with singing, but has coached her with monologues for auditions with the San Diego Junior Theatre. My daughter had her first audition with SD Junior theatre and because of the wonderful support and direction of Jessica, she was called back for a lead role...this on her first audition. My daughter was not cast as the lead, but was cast in the play. Jessica has given my daughter much more confidence to perform and speak in front of people, even if she never becomes a serious actress. This will help her in any career she chooses. I would highly recommend Jessica to anyone looking for a highly qualified and professional teacher. Every time we leave her private tutoring session, my daughter always says " I love her!!!"...not kidding."

Review by Rebekah
"Here are some testimonials from my previous students and employer.
It has been a honor to have such an inspirational singing teacher at our studio. Re
bekah has built up her student base and continued to receive referrals, due to her stellar teaching skills. Right from the start at our studio, Rebekah set a goal for the number of students she wanted and she met the goal quickly. Our studio families enjoyed working with her and brought their friends to take singing lessons with Rebekah.
It was a pleasure to have an organized teacher, implementing a system for all of her students performances. She developed a rapport with our piano teachers, who accompanied for her students at each monthly recital event. By her planning ahead and creating the performance binder & routine, she had the most students, consistently prepared and participating to perform. Her students were taught the importance of their weekly lessons, practice, poise, confidence and projection when singing. She introduced new skills, from warming up to taking a bow. Rebekah has given our students a solid foundation in their singing careers. She took time with each student to keep their music selections fresh and new. She also helped our studio keep on top of the current trendy music, which ALL of the students enjoyed!
Rebekah has been part of our musical teaching family for 2 years. It's a joy to see how she is using her gifts in music and sharing her passion for singing!
Our studio has been blessed with heavenly voices at several of our Students Sharing's and Parent Programs. We wish her all the best in her new adventures!

I have had the pleasure of working with Rebekah Leonard for two years. I have had several instructors since I started voice training, but none of them helped me grow vocally as much as she has. With Rebekah, I have studied everything from musical theater to classical pieces. She allowed me to pick my own songs while also suggesting other pieces that would challenge my voice and allow it to improve over time. Rebekah is easy to work with. She provides helpful advice and really encourages you when you do something right or when you take a step forward. I consider Rebekah to be a friend. I look up to her because she is so talented, not just as a performer, but also as a teacher. Anyone who has the opportunity to study with Rebekah should seize it immediately; it benefited me greatly.
Rebekah Leonard is an amazing voice teacher. She may be young but I was amazed by her level of knowledge about voice. She gave my daughter tips to protect her voice long term from potential injury. She helped my son with his musical performances by giving us tips on how to sing in a musical while being sick. Her tips are practical and really worked! She gave tips for auditions and how to look your best. She is very professional and organized a beautiful parent performance with her students.
Dear Rebekah, You have played such an important role in our lives. Bringing our daughter to you for voice lessons was such an amazing decision. We watched her blossom and learn so much from you. Her confidence roared and she was able to take on new challenges and exceed. We couldn't thank you enough. We will miss you!

Hi Mrs. Rebekah!! I've always loved singing, and I've always loved music. But there are certain ways I learn things, and you completely understand them. You understand what I want to achieve, and you understand how I want to go about accomplishing my goals. You understand my voice and my thoughts and you apply them to how you teach me. I have become so much more confident in my singing and my music because of you, and I've learned so much in the time we've had together. You got to know me on a personal level, and without that I never would've been able to have grown the way I have. You never pushed me to do anything that I didn't want to do, but you encouraged me to do what would make me stronger and more confident. I loved how you never made me do anything, but you instead inspired me to work harder and handed me the tools that I needed to be a better singer. You have changed my life so much, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Because I knew you as a friend as well as a teacher, you truly were one of the best teachers I have ever had. Thank you for everything that you have done for me, because I have not only been changed for the better, but I have also been changed for good. Love,
