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.
I'm a passionate instructor who loves working with students from all levels. However, my specialty lies in teaching advanced piano students. Due to the wide variety of experience in the piano teaching career, I have had the privilege of working with advanced piano students. I have had more than 10 years of teaching piano experience ranging from working with a privately owned Montessori school in Buena Park, CA. to working for a Music School, Brea. I have also taught a wide variety of styles ranging mostly from Pop to Country music. I was a Classically raised pianist myself. I have performed in numerous recitals and sung in a few vocal recitals while studying voice as a second instrument.
Since moving to LA, I have played hundred of local shows, toured around the US and to Russia, including playing the main stages at festivals with many thousands in attendance. I have recorded on records that have sold several million copies, including Robbie Williams (and his hit UK single "Candy") as well One Direction on their "Midnight Memories" album. I have worked with producers who's credits include Snow Patrol, U2, REM, Taylor Swift, One Direction, Robbie Williams, Silversun Pickups, The Fray, James Blunt, Neil Diamond, and many many more. Since starting my love for composition at 7, I continues to write and record, not only singing, but playing guitar, bass guitar, piano/keys, drums, mandolin, and harmonica, as well as producing and engineering, and mixing the session himself. I am an actively gigging musician on Vocals, Piano, Guitar and Bass.
My musical career started years before I stepped foot into a classroom. After teaching myself guitar and ukulele at an early age, I was found performing all over my community. Encouraged to continue my pursuit, I picked up the saxaphone and began mastering it through structured education as well as countless exposure to real world gigs.You will find me dedicating my time to my private students, as well as performing with various groups around Los Angeles on Guitar and Sax and in the studio working new material.
I am a local musician and music teacher. I graduated from Long Beach State University in 2015. I studied there with Dr. David Garrett and Mark Uranker. I have a wide range of experience in multiple instruments as well as multiple styles of music. My teaching style focuses on inspiring the student to want to see how well they can do. My philosophy of teaching is that if the student doesn't want to learn, it is my job to get them to want to do so. I am excited to be doing music, because it's been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember. I look forward to meeting you!

During voice lessons you will learn how to use your voice as an instrument, including proper technique for singing, breathing exercises, technical passages to improve your range and tone, and learning to sing specific songs! During your lessons you can learn various styles from classical and opera to R&B. Many students choose to learn songs from artists that are on the radio, as that is the music they enjoy listening to. During lessons you will also learn how to enhance your performance and audition skills, so if you are interested in auditioning for school musicals, community theatre performances, or reality tv competitions, then our network of teachers can definitely help you!
Adults start taking singing lessons for a variety of reasons. Some students maybe sang in their younger days such as in their school or church choir and want to start singing again, others aspire to become a recording artist and some want to prepare themselves for auditions such as The X-Factor, American Idol, or The Voice. Advanced students may want to work on a specific technique such as building strength in the head voice or improving their support and breath management. Singing is a great way to express yourself creatively and can also develop confidence and self-esteem in students of all ages and abilities.
Learning to sing is massively beneficial for students of a young age. Through lessons and practice, students can learn safe vocal techniques, how to look after their voices, develop their ability to hear and recreate pitch, and work on their musical theory. They can also prepare for exams, rehearsals, and competitions. Learning how to sing is also good for their overall development, as they will improve their concentration skills, raise their self-esteem and confidence, and develop a positive, hard-working attitude as well as a habit of self-discipline through regular practice and lessons.
There are many elements to vocal training, from learning to read music, to breath control techniques and mastering intonation. In beginning singing lessons, most students will learn and develop proper vocal technique which will help them be able to sing in a variety of styles. This multi-faceted approach is at the core of classical vocal training, giving students a well-rounded knowledge of musical techniques. Singing lessons will also allow students to develop their musical and performance skills and give them the confidence they need to audition and perform on stage.
Taking vocal lessons from the comfort of your own home is the most convenient way of learning how to sing with good technique. Finding the additional time out of a busy schedule to transport your child to and from their lessons can be difficult, making home lessons a convenient, time and money saving option. The only thing necessary for home lessons is a quiet room in which to sing and a keyboard! There is no difference between the lesson content of studio or home lessons, only the location is different. Home lessons help provide a safe, familiar, and comfortable learning environment for students.

I started my 5 yr old daughter with Karleen this Fall. Karleen has a calm and honest disposition. My daughter adores her and cannot wait for her arrival. I was concerned because my daughter is not so willing to "practice" during the week. Karleen advised me to allow her habits of practicing to evolve naturally as her love and understanding of piano increases. She emphasized how nurturing my daughter's love of music is most important. This was music to my ears :)

Our daughter has only been playing the piano since March. Tony replaced our other teacher who had a job transfer and could no longer teach. Tony is fun and encouraging. My daughter is playing Taylor Swift and Christmas songs and is playing the piano more than ever before. Very happy so far with Mr Tony

“My son and I have been taking lessons with Lynn for 5 or 6 years now. She is very patient with younger students (& older students having "senior moments"). She is also flexible in her lessons in that if we want to work on theory, jazz, rock, blues, she will cater to our requests.” – Karl B., C.P.A., Aug 2015

Ed is THE best instructor I've ever had and I've had many instructors over the years in various fields of study. Ed met us at a music store to help choose a guitar, this is after he first called and asked all the right questions. He's supplied my daughter with just the right amount of paper work and just the right amount of new techniques. By this I mean to say that Ed connects with the pace my daughter learns at. I highly recommend Ed AND Musika.

Noel is amazing. She is helping me to work toward my vocal goals for auditions to several musical theaters. She has helped me choose strong audition pieces and is teaching excellent ways to get the sound I need in a safe and healthy way. She works outside our lessons on new warm ups and new music pieces. She is the best.

Stephanie is an excellent voice teacher! Our 10-year-old daughter enjoys her lessons with Stephanie each week. She has an amazing way of connecting with our daughter through music. Stephanie knows how to offer constructive feedback in a positive way that keeps our daughter interested and wanting to learn more. I would recommend Stephanie without hesitation.
Review by William Klepatsky
Very knowledgeable on every aspect of music theory. I listen to recording artists playing various classical pieces, Dan's playing is much like a recording artist's playing. Always on time. Winning happy personality, a great role model. Puts me at ease when I am playing. Have two friends who hold music degrees, I count him a third, something special about the minds and personalities of good pianists. Thanks Dan.
Review by Ruslan
She is the most amazing teacher ever. She is not only w great teacher but she's so fun to work with. She has taught me so many things in such little amount of time things I didn't even know I could do. I recommend Andrea to everyone. She is an amazing singer and cares a lot about her students. She's the best!!

I honestly cannot say enough positive things about Rachel. We met her through CYT where my daughter took theater classes from Rachel and was directed by Rachel in several musicals. Because Rachel was so wonderful to work with and so clearly talented at teaching and directing, several years ago, my daughter started private vocal lesson with her and I have seen my daughter's vocal abilities grow in leaps and bounds. Rachel is an ace at picking music to work on that stretches abilities while at the same time, keeps vocal lessons fun. I highly recommend her as a voice and theater coach.
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.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
