Featured Cerritos Voice Teachers

Michael T

Instruments:

I, Michael G. Turner, breathe through music. My love for music began at a very early age and I was blessed to realize, very soon, that it was my passion.I began performing at the age of 13 on clarinet, in voice, and on drums and percussion. Most of my early performance experience was obtained in church, school, and in my older brothers' Top 40 band. I hold an Associates in Music degree from Los Angeles City College, a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Education from California State University Northridge, a California State Teaching Credential, and I am currently the music teacher and director of bands at Chatsworth High School in Chatsworth California.  My personal studio is equipped to teach voice, piano, wind instruments, drums and percussion.

Jim S

Instruments:

I have taught beginning-advanced students privately and in small group settings for over 25 years to students of all ages and levels, and I'm the the founder of Spencer Music and Artist Development located in Belmont Shore area of Long Beach, CA. I have also taught music on faculty of local community colleges and universities, and private and parochial schools.  As an artist developer and agent, many of my more advanced students perform professionally with local opera and musical theatre companies, are recording artists, or are on tv or with local playhouses.   I teach the following: piano, digital keyboards, harpsichord and organ (in students homes within a 12 mile radius only), voice, violin, viola, mandolin, kindermusik, music theory/ear training, music therapy, music industry and songwriting/composiiton.  As a classical and jazz pianist I have performed throughout the US and Canada in solo and chamber/combo settings as well as a guest artist with orchestras.  Credits include: Pacific Symphony (Costa Mesa, CA), San Francisco Baroque Camerata, Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, and Honolulu Symphony. As a musical theatre and opera lyric baritone/actor, I have performed in productions throughout the US.  Role Credits: Chip in On The Town, Billy Flynn in Chicago, Chuck in Promises Promises, M.C. in Cabaret, Papageno in Die Zauberflote, and Sky in Guys and Dolls. My music studio is conveniently located 1 block from the ocean in the beautiful Bluff Park area of Belmont Shore, Long Beach.  My studio has a keyboard, full music library, instruments, music stands, music software, audio archive, a comfortable sitting area for parents and students, an outdoor balcony and street parking. 

Patricia M

Instruments:

Music and the arts are my life's passions. I grew up in a musical family where I was constantly exposed to every genre of music from boogie-woogie (played by my father on our piano) to opera (which we heard over the radio every Saturday morning).  I graduated from Hood College for Women in Frederick, MD,  with a Bachelor of  Fine Arts in Applied Music, specifically in piano and voice. Although I had never had any formal training (I taught myself to sight read and play piano) until college, I was the first music student in 69 years to qualify to do an honors thesis in music. My thesis was "The Influence of Claude Debussy on the Evolution of Jazz in the America. " I presented my thesis at a Town Hall Performance in which I also sang and played a number of compositions by Claude Debussy. My classical training in voice was augmented by my study with Joseph Victor Laderoute, a visiting Professor from Peabody Conservatory. My training provided me with the necessary qualifications to audition for and to be employed by the San Diego Opera Co. I sang in the ensemble and had some small, but significant supporting roles.

Gary L

Instruments:

I have learned from some of the best teachers in and around Los Angeles, having studied for 4+ years in the early 1990s.  I love to hear good vocals.  It is heaven.  I love the pure, clean and raw sound.  I will help you get there and stay there.

More Information About Voice Lessons

The voice is the only instrument which actively requires the use of your entire body for its function. This is why maintaining the health of your body in general is crucial to maintaining the health of your voice. Smoking, excessive drinking of alcohol, caffeine, and the use of illegal drugs or certain medications is strongly discouraged. Singers are encouraged to drink room temperature water to promote the hydration of their vocal chords. Excessive screaming, loud singing, or singing for long amounts of time without a rest can cause damage to your voice, and should be avoided. It is important to eat a healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins to keep your whole body and voice healthy. Daily exercise is strongly encouraged, especially activities that require the use of your lungs such as swimming, running, cycling, or aerobics classes, all of which will increase your breath control capacity when singing.
Taking voice lessons in your home is a great way to enhance your musical skills without ever leaving your living room! As long as you have a piano or keyboard available, we can arrange for a teacher to come directly to you. Our professional teacher will help you learn the songs you want, and enhance your vocal skills, including the range and tone of your voice.
During their lessons, students will learn how to sing with good, safe and effective vocal technique. Learning to sing with good technique is the cornerstone to improving the tone, range and health of the voice during singing. Students will learn how to warm up properly, how to increase their vocal range, how to improve and strengthen their tone, performance techniques, how to accurately replicate pitch, how to support their singing with good breathing techniques, song interpretation and how to apply these techniques to singing their favourite songs. Vocal technique is not genre specific - the techniques taught can be applied to almost any genre of music. Students will develop these skills by vocalizing to piano scales. These vocal exercises are things such as; singing different vowel sounds on different scales, sirens, lip rolls and trills, articulation exercises and respiratory exercises. The exercises are tailored to the specific needs and ability levels of each individual student.
Voice lessons for adults will focus on adult-level technical exercises and repertoire choices. Lessons can be taught on various styles, and are tailor made to suit your style and skill level. If you are singing for the first time in your life, taking lessons as an adult is a great way to improve your musical skills.
Taking singing lessons at an early age can be a great advantage in the vocal development of students. Young students can get a head start in their singing abilities as they will learn from an early age how to hear and recreate pitch, work on their timing, start to build strength and coordination in their singing, develop a good understanding of how the voice works and music theory and can be exposed to a variety of styles and musical genres. We recommend that students take lessons from about the age of 11 or 12, as not to place too much pressure and strain on their voices before they have fully matured.
