Song assistance, melody and lyric training. audition help, pop vocal training, character singing, performance coaching
I love to sing (yay!) and am a professional singer/songwriter and a vocal coach & have been for many years. Named a top vocal coach in Backstage Magazine, I have coached beginners to pros, children to adult, whether they want to perform, record, just enjoy/fun or eventually pursue a serious singing career. My students have gone on to tour, get signed, do musical theatre (amateur & professional) or just enjoying singing freely with a great technique. I am considered encouraging and warm (see my reviews), but also know what it is to be at a level where you consistently sound great! This is my focus and is very encouraging to students. They will see themselves making progress and reaching set goals! I am an expert in pop technique (no opera or classical, sorry!), and work with students to preserve and take care of the voice. In lessons, we w
ill also have fun learning popular songs (from current hits to classic pop & rock) and look for opportunities to sing them. From pop to rock to R&B to country & more, students can explore their faves! Whether you or your child is a beginner, just-for-fun singer or singer/songwriter to pro, each student will be able to learn the skills they need to sing from their heart, find their own true voice and for serious singers, take it to the next level.

Children Voice lessons build confidence and enthusiasm, and help prepare children for performing in front of others. Singing at a young age develops vocal abilities, but more importantly develops a child's aural abilities (recognizing melodies, harmonies, etc.) as well as the ability to focus, take direction and be creative.
Performing / Recording / Vocal Health Recording, performing and touring presents unique challenges to singers. By concentrating on breathing, vocal tone, vocal production and tension reduction, warm-up exercises, and range building exercises, these lessons help increase stamina, build vocal tone, and reduce the effects of vocal fatigue for those who sing long hours at a time.
Church / Worship Leading Singing on praise/worship teams is an art form all of it's own. Lessons centered around this kind of singing focus on the areas of blending, tone, hearing harmonies, and keeping your part in a group. For the soloist / worship leader, lessons help in the areas of projection, tone, range, runs, and breathing.

Having recently attained my MM: Vocal Pedagogy from ASU, I am now accepting new students at my home studio in Chandler!
With 16 years of experience as a singer and 8 years as a music educator, I am well-trained to safely teach all voices and most genres: including musical theatre, pop, rock, jazz, classical/opera, choral, and folk. Before moving to Chandler in 2016, I was a full-time musician in San Diego for 6 years, where I taught private voice & piano lessons, children’s group classes, and also ran summer camps and several choirs for adults & kids. I am committed to inspiring my students to explore and share their own love of music, regardless of age or prior musical experience.
For the past 8 years, I've been helping my students achieve their musical goals: get cast as lead & supporting roles in musical theatre (MT) shows, prepare choir & solo songs for upcoming concerts, gain entrance into college voice programs, learn how to "belt" properly without strain, or simply ...
I have been studying the singing voice for 18 years, and am highly trained to teach all voices, now including transgender singers! I recently attained my Masters of Music in Vocal Performance/Pedagogy, as well as certification to teach contemporary styles from Shenandoah Conservatory’s CCM Vocal Institute. I have a growing voice studio online and at my home, and I teach most genres, including musical theatre (including belting), pop, rock (including scream/distortion), R&B, jazz, folk, classical/opera, and choral. With 10 years' experience as a music educator, I've taught a wide range of music, including private voice lessons, children’s group classes for voice and piano, directing summer music and Glee! camps, directing youth and adult choirs, directing and accompanying worship music, and vocal directing musical theater shows.
ve to help my students achieve their musical goals; some accomplishments include: get cast in lead and paid roles for musical theater shows, prepare for choir performances and college auditions, qualify for Regional and All-State Choirs, and how to belt out your favorite karaoke song without strain! I truly believe that a strong technical foundation not only makes singing in any genre possible, but ensures healthy singing habits for life. I am committed to helping my students find their unique voice and share that voice with the world.
I only work with singers of ages 12+ in my private voice studio because I believe that younger children receive the most benefit by singing in a choir with their peers, rather than taking private lessons for their young, under-developed voices. Better instrument options for private lessons for younger children are piano, violin, or guitar - which in order to play, require finger coordination and theory comprehension. I assign music theory and ear-training exercises to my voice students during lessons, as being able to read music well is essential to becoming a well-rounded, independent musician.
Jill does a wonderful job with my 8 year old daughter. She has a bubbly personality, and is always encouraging my daughter. My daughter always enjoys her lessons, and has an upbeat personality when she leaves each lesson.

Learning piano late in life!
It has been such a pleasant experience to take lessons from Jill. She is very positive and easy to understand in her instruction. I am a beginner in piano, and I feel I have learned a lot after only 3 lessons. She would be a wonderful piano teacher, no matter what your age!
Every student is a unique person who deserves a lesson customized to their individual needs. Each of my students prospers in an atmosphere of patience and encouragement. While the lessons are fun and enjoyable, the serious student will be supported in the development of skills leading to a rewarding career. And the more casual students will grow in an appreciation of music that will always enrich their lives.
I begin each voice lesson with a warm-up to prepare the student for their session. Next, we do a series of exercises specially designed to help each individual develop their skill in a way that best fits them. We then work on a piece of their choice for the remainder of the lesson, perfecting their technique and helping them become performance ready. I teach with patience and fun because I feel that this is the key to achieving goals and inspiring a good habit of practice. No experience is necessary, that is what I'm here for!

Thank you for your interest in lessons! I hope to help you achieve your goals and improve your skills, whether you're looking for music lessons, or help in math. Every student is a unique person who deserves a lesson customized to their individual needs. Each of my students prosper in an atmosphere of patience and encouragement. While the lessons are fun and enjoyable, the serious student will be supported in the development of skills leading to a rewarding career, and the more casual students will grow in an appreciation of knowledge that will enrich their lives.
I received my bachelor's degree in music with an emphasis on vocal performance at the University of Redlands in 2011 (which I attended on a music talent scholarship), and am now an active performer in Los Angeles, CA. I have been tutoring and teaching privat
e lessons for almost 10 years, and currently have over 40 active students.
I have played leading roles in several operas and musicals in Southern California, including Gianni Schicchi, Die Fledermaus, La Boheme (DTL nominee), The Impresario, The Tales of Hoffmann, The Grand Duke, Patience (DTL award), Cosi fan tutte, Little Women, Seussical, and many more. I have also appeared in several concerts, opera scenes, competitions (winning music scholarships and theater awards), and worked as a singer in churches, restaurants, and in pop bands. I continue to stay active in the performance industry, and I could never live without it!
With this experience under my belt, I feel a desire to pass on my knowledge to students. I carry a strong passion to help people develop their abilities and make them their own. I truly believe that if someone wants something out of life they will achieve it with dedication, perseverance, confidence, and by having FUN doing it!
Singing lessons are tailored to match student goals and interests while providing technical challenges. I specialize in musical theater, praise/worship, and popular styles. I also have experience teaching jazz, classical, and songwriting techniques. Music lessons should be fun! But lessons also need to focus on growing students beyond their comfort zones. I look forward to working with you!
I offer private music lessons in voice, piano, and guitar. Primarily specializing in musical theater, jazz, pop, and contemporary worship styles, students enjoy having their own voice in song selection. Lessons offer a variety of technique exercises, music theory, performance practice, and repertoire expansion. I also have songwriting experience and can help students develop their own writing and improvisational skills.
*** Travel Equipment *** I can bring an acoustic guitar to lessons as well as applicable teaching materials. I will need students that are taking piano lessons to have access to their own piano or keyboard. (Also applies if voice students would like piano accompaniment.)
Very professional, patient and kind. Made the lesson interesting.

Great to work with! Kind and patient with my daughter but also seems to know her stuff!

Angela is extremely knowledgeable in all things voice and instrument. She is very talented in both singing and teaching. I took voice lessons from her & I can say I learned so much about technique, breathing, & how to care for my vocals. Angela taught me to embrace my range & love my voice. She is a great teacher I would recommend her to anyone that wants to learn more in this area.
Learn to sing Broadway tunes using a healthy vocal technique. Focus on breathing, vowels, space and placement.
I have a Master's in Vocal Performance from Portland State University, and over a decade of vocal training and performance experience.
I teach voice lessons to kids, teenagers, and adults, ranging in ability from beginner to experienced. I have helped the beginning students learn to match pitch and read notes on the staff. My voice students learn to sing with purer vowels, increased breath support, and to access greater vocal range.
I teach beginning piano to all ages. I teach students as young as 5 as long as they are able to stay focused for the duration of a half hour lesson. Most of my piano students are in the 7 -10 range, but I teach some beginning adults as well.
I travel to some students in N and NE Portland, but I vastly prefer to have students come to me. For students in Vancouver, WA, I do ask that they come to me.
*** Lesson Details *** Voice students will learn to improve their technique through proper breathing, correct vowels, space, and resonance. I teach repertoire based on the students' interest, but I am well versed in classical and operatic repertoire in English, French, German, and Italian, as well as some musical theatre and jazz. I also teach pop songs for those who are interested. I can help you improve your technique for whatever style of music you want to sing. For adults, I recommend an hour voice lesson. For kids, I recommend a half hour voice lesson, and half hour of piano if they are not already taking it.
Piano students will learn to read music, play with correct form, learn scales, and improve their musicianship skills. I teach out of lesson books (mostly Faber) to improve technique, but I want students to learn supplemental pieces that are fun for them as well. For piano beginners, I recommend 30 minutes. Once the student is a little more experienced, I like to have them for 45 minutes.
I hope to share with you the same joy I get from making music!
*** Studio Equipment *** My studio at home has a piano, my music library, a large mirror for aiding the student in observing their vocal habits.
*** Travel Equipment *** For in home lessons, students will need to have a keyboard or a piano in a space free of distractions. Students should have a neat, three ring binder to hold any loose sheet music. Piano students need a regular notebook to write lesson assignments.
*** Specialties *** I specialize in teaching classical art songs and musical theatre.
I believe that anyone who can speak can learn to sing! I teach based on music theory, technique, and repertoire building. The three register method I use can be applied to any style of singing from Opera to Pop. I have an Artist Certificate in Voice, a BA in Voice Performance, and an MAT in Choral Conducting. My specialty is Vocal Pedagogy, which means that I teach students the correct way to sing to ensure a safe and healthy instrument. I have been teaching private voice for ten years, and have a proven track record of students who have gone on to be successful in achieving their goals.
I began singing in a local children's choir when I was ten, and haven't looked back since! I attended the Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities in Greenville, SC where I studied Opera and Musical Theater Voice. I then went to the College of Charleston where I completed a BA in Voice Performance and an MAT in Choral Conducting. I love singing, and love teaching others to love singing as well! I teach music full time and am the Musical Theater Director at Porter Gaud in Charleston, SC. I teach voice using registers and correct technique so that my students can sing whatever style of music best suits their interests. I am an avid Vocal Pedagogist and I present at State and National level conferences in the field of healthy singing.

I would highly recommend Tony Mitri as a voice and music instructor. My son takes lessons with Mr. Mitri and his progress has been astounding! He studies with other teachers previously without much success. My son has said he has learned more from Mr. Mitri than all of his previous instructors. He enjoys the lessons so he works harder at making progress and it shows. He helped him expand his range substantially, and increase his confidence. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in music of any kind. Mr.Mitri is awesome professional, patient and extremely knowledgeable. You won’t be disappointed.

"Tamari is excellent with our 7y/o daughter. She is very thorough and detailed in her instruction. We love how she involves us, the parents, in the lesson.
We could not be happier."
"I started working with Jen a little over two months ago, and in those two months I have learned more about the music business than I have in my entire lif
e. Ms. Jen works hard to make sure her students get the most out of every lesson. She is a genuine person with a huge heart and dedication to the music field. In every lesson, Ms. Jen warms us up well by working on breathing techniques. We are always laughing and having a ball, there is never a dull moment with Ms. Jen! I would recommend Jen to anyone interested in taking lessons. She is an inspiration to all of her students, and the best teacher I have ever had!"
"I have known Matthew for over three years. I took my son to him for Singing and acting lessons. Matthew is amazing. He is a very talented, creative, as
well as an inspirational teacher. He is so kind and considerate to all that he teaches. Matthew is a drama student of the Performing Arts and is beyond incredible in his acting roles. His singing is stunning. When it comes to lessons, Matthew is the only person that I would bring my son too."
"Seriously... best teacher I’ve ever had. Thank you!!!!!!"
"I absolutely loved working with Jameson. The greatest skill I gained from his lessons was confidence in my voice. I felt that he really wanted to get to k
now me, my voice, and my goals in singing. I primarily went to him for help on musical theater auditions, and after working with him, I began getting more callbacks. He coached me on my singing, as well as how to be more expressive in my singing. His energy and enthusiasm made me comfortable to try things like belting higher or attempting riffs, expanding my skills as a singer. In lessons, Jameson combines professional training and technique with personal tips, making each lesson more effective and memorable. His enthusiasm makes every lesson both fun and worthwhile. His critiques are always paired with genuine encouragement. For new or experienced singers, Jameson has valuable insight."
"Steve is an excellent musician and gifted teacher. He is intuitive and nurtures individual talent."
"This product made it easy to find an instructor in our area
This product made it easy for me to choose an instructor for my daughter that was compatable
with her interest in Musical Theater. We were both extremely happy with her lessons. My daughter show great improvement in her voice control and in her confidence after a few short lessons with Adina. Adina was able to connect quickly with my daughter and encourage to reach those hight notes successfully. My daughter was able to audition confidently for a local production of "Annie" and was successful in being offered one of the lead orphan roles! Thank you Adina!"
"Very patient with my young daughter with sensory issues"
"Wish I met Stephen sooner. Can't wait to see him again!
