Featured Pasadena Voice Teachers

Michelle G

Instruments:

Michelle has been surrounded by music since her infancy, and since then has continuously branched out to learn new styles and genres of this universal art of entertainment. A violinist, pianist, singer, and songwriter, Michelle is a wonderful fury of energy to be reckoned with - and her professional experience is equally as diverse as her talent. She has performed as a guest artist with Riuniti Opera, Near East Music Ensemble, The Erick Bolivar Band, Luis Eric Gonzalez, world-reknown jazz/pop trumpet player David Longoria, and has recorded violin and vocals for many tv cues and jingles. Her most recent singing credits include "9 to 5" on the Soundtrack of The Dictator with Sasha Baron Cohen, as well as violin for latin pop artist Erick Bolivar's "Amar Solo es Amar" (music video is currently in production). A true firework on the stage, Michelle exudes a dynamism and flare that is uniquely hers, and is known to contribute an undeniable positivity to her music workshops, collaborations, and concerts. It is with much joy and enthusiasm that she shares her knowledge of music & performing arts with her fellow colleagues and students!

Jennifer W

Instruments:

I am a creative and nurturing instructor that possesses a Masters in Music Education and over a decade of practical experience.  I graduated from Azusa Pacific University, and have enjoyed teaching at the collegiate level for the last several years.  Participating in the International Tour of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas",as well as in multiple regional performances at the Geffen Playhouse, Crystal Cathedral, Disneyland, Moonlight Ampitheater and many others, has given me the skill and experience that I love to impart to students!  I enjoy working with all skill levels, and helping students achieve their personal and professional goals!

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.

Cory M

Instruments:

I have loved listening and playing music for as long as I can remember. I have had the good fortune to meet and study with some of the most famous musicians on the planet! I have always enjoyed learning in a one on one situation and that is how I like to teach. I have a pro studio fully equipped for teaching piano, guita, bass, voice, violin, harmonica, songwriting and recording.

Saundra A

Instruments:

I am energetic and passionate, but personable; I love meeting new people and I love making music with them even more. As a recent graduate from Berklee College of Music with a degree in Music Ed and Vocal Performance, I am so excited to share all I have learned and experienced with the musicians of today and tomorrow. I have always been a teacher at heart, as well as a hard worker--when I set my mind to something I go after it and I find a way to get it. It is this same attitude that I encourage in my students, especially with their musical futures.

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.
In home voice lessons are a convenient way to learn the art of singing! Our instructors are qualified to teach a variety of styles ranging from Opera to R&B. If you are interested in auditioning for local competitions or even reality tv shows like American Idol or The Voice, our instructors can definitely help you prepare. Most voice lesson music and materials can be purchased online or at a local music store.
Singing lessons will focus on teaching students how to sing with good vocal technique and how to apply these techniques to the art of singing songs. Students will learn exercises and techniques that enable them to sing with a clear, balanced, well-pitched vocal tone, how to support the voice and how to increase their vocal range. Students will learn these techniques through vocalizing vowel sounds on different scales that vary in difficulty, learn how to tilt the thyroid cartilage in order to bridge into the head voice for range extension and how to reduce the use of the extrinsic muscles of the larynx to avoid constriction when ascending in pitch. Students can develop their performance techniques and song interpretation, and learn advanced techniques and exercises such as developing vibrato, rasp/distortion effects, messa di voce and vocal run and fills. Students can also be prepared for auditions, exams and gigs.
Adult students often have a specific singing goal in mind when starting their lessons. For example, many singers who enjoy rock music want to increase their vocal ranges so they can sing along on pitch with their favourite vocalists. Increasing the range of the voice requires a few fairly simple techniques, but they take time to master and apply to songs. Other students may want to learn to sing just for fun, to join a band or to prepare for auditions, such as The X Factor, The Voice, American Idol or a music college.
Young children who have not reached vocal maturity must be careful when considering taking singing lessons. Over working the voice at such as young age risks causing strain and damage to the vocal folds, which are very delicate. As such, we recommend students start lessons at no younger than 12 years old. Students at this age can learn safe, effective vocal techniques that will prevent learning and developing bad singing habits in the future. They can also develop their critical hear, music theory knowledge and understanding of techniques such as supporting the voice with good breath management and skills like vibrato.
