Chloe S.

Studio City, CA

I have been teaching singing for 5 years now and absolutely love it! My personal specialty is in classical singing, but I began my study in Musical Theater and offer my students a healthy technique to tackle Broadway with. Our lessons will be half warm-ups, vocalizes, and technique work and the second half will be going through rep.

About Chloe

Hi there! thank you for taking the time to look at my profile and learn a little more about me... I am a 2014 graduate of San Jose State University and have been teaching voice and piano lessons for 4 years. I have over 13 years of experience in singing, and 19 years of piano training. My most exciting accomplishment to date is my artist residency with Opera San Jose for the 2014/2015 season where I performed and understudied main roles over in four difference productions.

Although my main passion is opera performance I absolutely LOVE to teach as well! I teach pop, musical theater, and
classical voice to students of all ages, and also teach beginning to intermediate classical piano for all ages.

That's pretty much the gist about me and my teaching, but if you'd like to know what your lesson might look like keep reading:

--Voice Lessons--
I usually like to split the lessons in half: the first half on technique (breathing exercises, posture, body alignment, warm-ups, vowel clarity) and the second half on repertory. I specialize in operatic singing, but am passionate about other styles and offer my musical theater and pop students a solid vocal foundation. For those who do wish to take the classical route I offer them the ability to sing in many foreign languages (Italian, German, French, Russian, Spanish, and Latin)

***For voice students under the age of 13 (pre-pubescent) I split my lessons in half between musicianship and singing. The reason I do this is:

1) Young voices are simply not physically mature enough yet to begin rigorous training

and

2) Musicianship skills are equally as important to being a good singer, so why not build a great foundation until they get a little older?

--Piano Lessons--
I divide my students into basic, beginning, and intermediate levels.

Basic: These lessons are ideal for my youngest students (5-8). We will go through the beginning stages of music theory: notation, rhythm and scales. Repertory will consist mostly of educational music to develop the students reading and two hand coordination.

Beginning: With the basics mastered, I then move on to beginning music theory: major/minor scales, tonal harmony, and more advanced rhythms. At this point I like to start having my students work on easy repertory from the common practice period (Mozart, Bach, etc).

Intermediate: Now we cover all major/minor scales, chromatic harmony, and intermediate repertory from classical to modern traditions (Beethoven, Schumann, Chopin).

--Studio Equipment---
***If taking a lesson out of your own home I do require that you own a keyboard for music lessons.***

--Studio Policies--
Progress, not perfection!
A good musician listens with an open heart.
Practice, Practice, Practice! (duh!)

Chloe has worked out better than we had hoped or expected. She is teaching our mid-elementary aged children and they love her. The children are excited about the lessons, look forward to seeing her, and they enjoy practicing their lessons. If you want a great teacher that can motivate in a positive manner I would suggest Chloe.

Radina V.

Van Nuys, CA

If you are preparing for an audition, I can help you with your song selection and of course we will also work on those songs to prepare you for the audition.

About Radina

I am a dedicated vocal coach, musician, singer, songwriter and founder of "Vocals on Stage".
At the age of 6 I started playing Cello and discovered my passion for music but my main focus quickly became the instrument voice. I studied for years at the Unique Voice Studios - a private school for contemporary singing in Vienna and have studied Jazz vocals at the Schubert Conservatory in Vienna as well as private vocal coaches Rocio Guitard, Romana Caren Lakinger, Sandy Cressman, Monika Ballwein and others.
I have a Master of Science Degree from the University of Vienna and speak English, Germ
an, Bulgarian and French.

Since 2005 I have been studying and teaching "Mix" - a vocal technique which teaches students how to transition smoothly between chest voice and head voice and receive the full benefits of “both worlds”: the natural and powerful sound of the chest voice, and the beauty and range of the head voice.
I teach contemporary music, Pop, Rock, Soul, Blues, Jazz, R'n'B, Country and Musical.
For the past 8 years I have been working as a vocal instructor in Vienna, San Francisco and Los Angeles, giving private and group lessons.

*** Lesson Details ***
During a lesson we will work half of the time on technical exercises and half of the time on a song which the student can choose or I will make a recommendation.
All lessons are recorded and given to the student to conveniently practice at home between each lesson.

Music styles thought: Pop, Rock, Musical Theater, Soul, Country, R'n'B, Blues, Jazz

Working with Radina is such a pleasure! She is extremely patient and kind. I truly enjoy the different methods she provides to help me improve my voice. Another great thing is her recorded lessons. I can always go back and review our lesson and go over things I needed help with using the recordings. She's also incredibly flexible with my hectic schedule, which is such a huge plus! I highly recommend her. Thank you so much for everything, Radina. You're amazing!

This is it!

I've been taking lessons with Radina for a few months and I'm super happy with the progress I've made so far. I didn't know anything about head voice, chest voice, mix and now it's all starting to make sense. I'm not afraid to sing higher notes which I always wanted to be able to do!

Radina is a highly professional and nice teacher, she really understands what is going on in a singers voice and mind and she hears everything.

I always look forward to my next lesson :)

Zeffin Quinn H.

Valley Village, CA

Bring the best of both worlds from acting and singing to a "no compromises" well rounded performance where acting choices support the vocal technique and vice versa.

About Zeffin Quinn

♪ If you want to...

1) Build a vocal technique that will not fail you
2) Have piece of mind that the SOUND you want to come out of your mouth WILL come out
3) Know that you are using your own 100% authentic sound

...then you have found the right teacher!

♪ ♪ ♪ LESSON DETAILS ♪ ♪ ♪
Most teachers "vocalize" or "warm you up" for 5 or 10 minutes and then the lesson is spent just singing through songs with no real emphasis on how to execute awe-inspiring and healthy singing.

Working with me is a truly distinctive experience, much like a workout with a trainer (Don't laugh becau
se I'm a little over weight!). We will spend the hour working on very physical and specific exercises to build a comprehensive technique that will support you through any genre of singing. At the end of each lesson, usually about 15 minutes, we can work on your chosen repertoire. Utilizing both vocalise and song literature that you choose, we will go through very pragmatic and utilitarian methods that will generate an easy, free and uniquely individual sound.

Studying with Zeffin is a true joy and and creatively inspiring experience. Learning from such a gifted and experienced singer/actor who really knows the demands and expectations of having a high profile operatic career is an invaluable experience. With the positive environment he provides through his uniquely original feedback, I feel I can push myself and explore the music I am singing without thoughts of self-consciousness or doubt that I have been struggling with in the past.Due to his immense enthusiasm about singing and acting Zeffin has been instrumental in helping me break old habits and build confidence. It's been a wonderful year and I heartily recommend Zeffin for any student interested in growing as a performer, artist and musician.

Zeffin helped me change my voice and performance style completely for the better! I had been studying musical theatre and operatic singing for nearly a decade when I met him and I learned more about my voice in the first month of lessons with him than I did in the years prior. He has an enthusiasm and passion for singing that is infectious and apparent in all of his students. And his way of explaining vocal technique is simple and easy to understand even for a beginner. If you're serious about singing and improving your voice, then Zeffin is a great choice for a teacher!

Coming from a very unsuccessful experience with a previous voice teacher, Zeffin put me right, right away. Over the three years I have spent studying with him, I have felt my voice grow and become more secure in itself. Zeffin's technique teaches to play on the intricate connections between voice, body, mind, and sound. Now that I understand the physicality involved in singing properly, I know I'll never go back to my "old ways." It's strange to say, but I feel physically stronger and healthier after every lesson. As a guy and classical singer, I feel Zeffin's instruction is perfect for me. I've found Zeffin to be an incredible mentor and role model, and I know I'll have trouble trusting anyone else to achieve in me what he has. If I ever leave Zeffin, I might as well give up singing all together!

Jackie B.

Studio City, CA

A great performance is so much more than hitting the right notes. I have an extensive background in song analysis and performance and firmly believe that preparation is key to a memorable performance. Your coaching sessions will start with a detailed discussion of the song’s music and lyrics before moving on to the notes themselves. This leads to a focused understanding of the song that will be meaningful and effective for the performer and the audience.

About Jackie

I am an experienced teacher who brings 20+ years of performing and training to each lesson. I am also very sensitive to physical and emotional "blocks" that can prevent singers from accessing their full range of potential.

I work with singers of all ages and experience levels who want to improve performance, vocal expression and range.

I am passionate about connecting a performer with the material and I believe that most stumbling blocks are the result of a lack of preparation, not a lack of talent. We may not all be Audra McDonald, but there may be a little Elaine Stritch in all of u
s! Confidence and individuality are key to a successful performance and I am here to make that happen!

My daughter takes lessons from Jackie and she has been so helpful. As a vocal instructor, she knows her stuff of course, but I also appreciate her care for my daughter as a young performer, helping her overcome fears and work through insecurities that tween/teen girls can have. My daughter has grown in her singing and acting as well as her confidence. Jackie has been flexible when our schedule was tricky, and always instructive but positive. Definitely recommend!

Tania S.

Encino, CA

More and more revivals are showing up on Broadway and they call for a "legit" sound. That means a classical technique with a musical theater style. Be prepared! The rigors of the musical theater schedule are demanding. A good technique is your only defense against 6-9 shows a week! Protect your finest asset- your talent. No one knows how to do that better than an opera singer...especially on who has sung plenty of musical theater!

About Tania

I am an enthusiastic teacher with a nuts-and bolts approach to singing. With over 20 years of training as an opera singer my technique is impeccable! I teach all styles and ages from beginner to professional. Can't carry a tune? You can learn! Love to sing in the shower? Dry off and sing out proud! Is your kid a Broadway Baby? Give him or her the best training and keep those cords SAFE with proper technique. If your child isn't a typical learner- have no fear. I am a patient and experienced teacher with ASD and ADHD kids. All learning styles welcome! I have trained with the best a
nd am ready to share my knowledge. Come train in a fun and nurturing environment while improving by leaps and bounds!

Tania is exactly what I was looking for in a voice instructor. When she listens to me sing, she knows exactly what I need to concentrate on and explains so well how to achieve it. I'm inspired every day when I hear the positive changes in my voice while practicing. I've had other voice instructors throughout the years but never quite had the same connect. Sometimes you just get lucky.

I needed help getting ready for an upcoming school audition that was within a month and a half. It was a bit of an emergency since I had to learn and perform two classical songs from memory after eight years of a singing break! I searched through several profiles on here but I was instantly drawn to Tania through her words and video uploads. She seemed to be the perfect match and I was grateful for her to take on this challenge with me. When I finally met her, I was absolutely thrilled to find that she was all I had hoped her to be - and more!

Tania's voice is incredible and she is filled with so much insight about voice techniques and bodily applications. She is not afraid to challenge you to go above and beyond your goals but she is also patient, understanding, and will be there for you every step of the way. I find her to be inspirational, wise, and encouraging. In fact, I can easily say that I have learned more about how to TRULY sing from her than all the years I spent in choral programs in school. She is incredibly beautiful and beautiful to work with!

I feel blessed to have found Tania and I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for a remarkable voice coach. I won’t know until March if I have been accepted into music school but I have no doubt that I've made it thanks to Tania’s help!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!

It's my pleasure to recommend Tania as a voice teacher without reservation. I had the pleasure of working with her as her accompanist/vocal coach for several years while we both lived in Florida. Tania possesses a beautiful soprano voice, is quite a talented actress and is quite facile with French, German and Italian diction. She's an excellent teacher; I've had the pleasure of hearing some of her students sing. If you're looking for a voice teacher, Tania would be an outstanding choice.
