Spanish has always been difficult for me, but Michelle has helped me so much! She's the first Spanish teacher I actually look forward to seeing each time we have a lesson because she makes the lessons so much fun! She's very funny and easy to work with. Whenever I need to make a change to a lesson she always does everything she can to make it work. I've finally been able to raise my grade in Spanish after working with her!

At the risk of giving away my best kept secret, Michelle is THE BEST!!!

Not only is she an amazing teacher, she is an incredible talent, and awesome person. Her relaxed and nurturing nature enables you to feel super comfortable and excited to learn. She motivates you to try your best and focuses on your strengths, while building and improving upon your weaknesses.

I've taken singing lessons in the past, and after one class with Michelle, I realized, I hadn't learned anything! If you really want to learn in a positive and motivating environment, take classes with Michelle. Just don't sign up for my time slot...I called dibs and I'm going to be taking classes for a while! Lol. =)
Michelle A. Sherman Oaks, CA

These lessons are focused on re-awakening the student to their creative potential through authentic self-expression. Although centered around the voice, Michelle will use various techniques to help unlock any resistance or hesitation to expressing ones whole self more fully in the world. By first understanding and recognizing the voice as a vessel for creativity and authenticity, we can then cultivate habits and techniques, which allow the student to gain confidence, joy and inspiration through the expression of their authentic self. These lessons are ideal for those wishing to gain more confidence in their speaking voice, the individual looking to overcome any type of performance anxiety and/or for the student wishing to cultivate a speaking voice that more fully reflects and resonates the individual they desire to express themselves as. This can also be a wonderful opportunity for the seasoned performer to take their artistry and connection to their craft to the next level.

About Michelle

I believe that everyone can sing, it is just a matter of learning how to use your unique instrument. From a very young age I was sharing my love of the arts with others as a performer. I grew up with an immense appreciation for all forms of art and found music to be the ideal way to express myself. My extensive education and performance experience has allowed me to cultivate my skills and knowledge so that I can best support each student on their own unique journey of cultivating their authentic singing voice. As a teacher I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to support students both in my studio and through online lessons, providing the positive and supportive guidance and experiences they need in order to cultivate their own musical gifts. *** Lesson Details *** My intention for ...

I all out just wanted to try this out for fun, no other reason. I didn't expect to have nearly as much fun as I did and I learned A LOT more than I expected too. Michelle is wonderful and really makes you feel at ease. I never sang in front of anyone alone and by week 4 I had gained the courage to sing at a karaoke bar. Incredible experience. The lessons we're a birthday gift so unfortunately I will have to wait until the next opportunity to receive this gift again. Thank you so much Michelle! I enjoyed every minute and I will be back!

Stephanie is a wonderful teacher with the most positive attitude! I've been singing with her for over a year now, and I can really see the growth I've accomplished under her careful guidance . She has great understanding of all the different styles of music that I like to sing. Most importantly, she makes me feel at ease in her presence.

My experience with Stephanie has been exceptionally awesome and inspiring over the last year. She is sensitive, super positive, and full of light and energy when it comes to guidance. I have never felt so confident as a singer, and though I still have a little bit to go before Broadway, I highly recommend her to anyone interested in rapidly developing or fine tuning their singing voice. She is also exceptionally talented as a singer herself and truly tailors sessions to really benefit your particular goals and vision for where you want to bloom as a singer.

Ms. Fawn not only has a very good technical skills on voice but also have a very good personality that can ignite and motivate the kids to learn based on the kid's personalities.

My daughter has a very good experience in Ms. Fawn class. Ms. Fawn always can point precisely what wrong and what is the right way to sing in each class. Ms. Fawn works around with my daughter's personality and make my daughter to learn in a way she really enjoy to learn. Ms. Fawn also helps my daughter to find a way that make her focus better when singging.

Ms. Fawn is a great teacher, I am glad that I found her in take lesson website. Both me and my daughter have a great experience with her.

Fawn is a wonderful teacher! I was in the process of prepping for acting conservatories, some schools require the students to sing; Fawn helped this extremely inexperienced singer sound pretty good and confident for her auditions. Fawn is extremely professional and light hearted, she'll never make you feel uncomfortable about your performance. Fawn is encouraging and very talented, I could hear improvement within my performance by my third lesson. You'll never feel stuck when rehearsing with her and she's full of suggestions. I would recommend Fawn to anyone wanting to take singing lessons!

Vanessa L. Burbank, CA

Proper diction appropriate to the material or daily speech. With fun exercises including tongue twisters and silly faces to take the pressure off perfection.

About Vanessa

Bachelor's in musical theater performance from Columbia College Chicago. Audition prep (acting/singing) and vocal technique for clients since 2007. My critique during your lesson is always honest, so you know when I give you a compliment it is well deserved. I especially love working with non-singers and helping them find their voice. I always start with an assessment to see where your work is currently at and where we can go from there. I keep notes during your lesson, send you an email afterwards with your homework for the week, then I use those notes to think of personalized ways to improve your technique before your next lesson. If honesty and results are what you're looking for in a teacher, I promise to be that teacher for you. *** Lesson Details *** Whether you're ...
