Instruments:

 Tara Rose Davison is been involved in music her whole life. Her father is a professional composer and her mom is a professional dancer. Thus she was lucky enough to be surrounded by the arts since infancy. She began her piano studies at age 5 and knew she would be a musician from the very beginning.  Tara has garnered much success as an opera singer, performing throughout the United States and Internationally in roles such as Queen of the Night in Die Zauberflöte, Cleopatra in Giulio Cesare, Rosalinda in Die Fledermaus, Sister Rose in Dead Man Walking and Giannetta in L’Elisir d’Amore. By the age of 21, she was the youngest finalist in the Metropolitan Opera National Council Western Region Auditions.  In the same year, Tara was introduced to the under-recognized genre of art songs with classical guitar accompaniment. From that moment on she was hooked. In September of 2006, during her first year of graduate school, Tara began her classical guitar studies with Masakazu Ito of the Lamont School of Music. Ever since her first lesson she has been passionate about classical guitar and has shifted her focus from opera by devoting herself to the study of music for classical guitar and soprano. Less than three years after taking her first classical guitar lesson, Tara gave her debut recital of art songs for soprano and classical guitar, performing both a singer and classical guitarist. She has since made an annotated bibliography of all works for voice and guitar and in 2010 released her first album, Love Songs & Lullabies from Spain and South America for Soprano & Classical guitar.  Tara has received scholarships from the Metropolitan Opera National Council, Society of Singers, Phi-Beta, Palisades Symphony and Westside Junior Philharmonic.  She has performed in master classes with William Vendice, John Hall and Blanche Thebom.  She received a Bachelors of Music from California State University at Northridge in 2006 and a Masters of Music from University of Colorado at Boulder in 2009.  While studying at University of Colorado, Tara was the sole recipient of the Berton Coffin scholarship, the highest honor for any music major.  Tara Rose currently performs recitals of music for classical guitar and voice around Southen California and studies classical guitar with Matt Greif and Scott Morris at Cal-State University Dominguez Hills. She is also working on a second album, Ariette Italiane, which will be released in 2013.

I believe music is a gift that unites people together bringing out our deepest emotions that words cannot express. At the age of 5 I received an organ and from that point on I embarked on a long life journey to indulge and learn more about music. In elementary, junior high and high school I was involved in any subject dealing with music. I joined school choirs, orchestras, bands, marching bands, jazz bands, musicals you name it. While enjoying all school music activities I was selected to join in honor county and state orchestras and choirs. In junior high and high school I was selected to play for the Junior Pacific Symphony Orchestra, received scholarships to music summer camps, and was selected musician of the year. In college my quest continued with the Orange Coast College Orchestra, Praise Symphony Orchestra, Vanguard University Orchestra as well as guitar ensembles and college choir groups. I've also taken private lessons from Dr. Art David (Julliard graduate) in stand up bass as well as David Black (Pacific Symphony Orchestra) and classical guitar with Richard Glenn and David Murray.

I studied music at University of California, Santa Barbara, where I received my B.A. I currently work as a professional singer for various local opera companies, music theater groups, churches and temples. I have worked extensively in Los Angeles schools performing musical assemblies for students in elementary and middle grades. My teaching experience includes private voice lessons and master classes at Idyllwild School for the Arts.I emphasize breathing techniques to free up the voice to expand your range and ease of singing. In the lesson, we start with simple warm ups and vocalizes and then apply techniques to the songs you want to sing. I realize each student is different and I customize the lesson to the student's particular needs. I specialize in classical and music theater, however the basics of singing apply to all styles of music. In addition to working on breathing and technique for singing, we'll also focus on interpretation of the songs you are working on. I also teach beginning piano, using the John W. Schaum series.

I have learned piano at the age of six and voice as well. Studied at professional music school at the age of eleven.I graduated with honors and holds a Bachelor of Music degree in Voice Performance and Piano from State Music University.  I have a few openings for new voice and/or piano students.  Voice/ whether you are looking to sing opera, musical theater, musicianship(theory,rhythm dictation...) or just want to improve your voice, I can provide you with the skills necessary to sing healthfully, correctly, and beautifully. I am educated in vocal pedagogy and teach the Richard Miller method of vocal health. I teach all ages and have experience teaching children of any age.  I do encorage my voice and piano students Only if they express interest. What does happen often is that as a student absorbs the approach, it affects their life to some extent they naturally start slowing down and appreciating details in their lives too; they relax and become more aware of what’s around them because their minds have been trained somewhat through practicing music that way. Then they may or may not gravitate toward learning to meditate. But I never push anyone in that direction. If they do express interest in meditation during their piano lessons, the focus is on how meditation can be helpful to them in practice and performance.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
