I am a current student at Sacramento State University studying my profession in Clarinet Performance. I am in several professional ensembles such as the Golden State Wind Orchestra, and have performed in pit orchestras. I have done musical theater and dance as a hobby which has been great. I love getting to know other musicians and allowing them to grow under my wing.

Hi, Everyone! I am an operatic lyric soprano with a B.A. in Music from Hunter College (2016). I currently study voice privately with Dr. Claudia Friedlander in Manhattan. I reside in New Jersey with my alien-cat, Meeko. Most of my teaching background comes from working with high school students on musical theater repertoire. During college, I was the Assistant Director of Obsessed! Productions, a company that provided musical theater performance opportunities for North Bergen High School (NJ) students. From 2011-2015, I led music rehearsals and planned our rehearsal schedules, in addition to doing voice lessons individually with all of the students in the productions. We put on cabarets and fully staged productions, such as Rent (2013) and Little Shop of Horrors (2015).As a performer, I have starred in both operatic (Le nozze di Figaro, Don Giovanni) and musical theater (Les Misérables, Phantom of the Opera, Titanic the Musical) productions throughout high school and college.I love teaching musical theater and opera, but I am open to teaching pop as well! For me, singing is like yoga - it is a daily practice that helps us get in touch with our truest and most authentic self. Technique is really just there to serve you and help you get out of your head and into the music!A few facts: (1) one of my operatic dream roles is Donna Elvira in W.A. Mozart's Don Giovanni, (2) I am very interested in Astrology and can probably guess your sun sign (and maybe moon) at our first lesson!

Expect to laugh and have some fun along the way!!!Working with the physical structure of your face and body, we'll uncover ways to free you FROM yourself.

I will provide a foundation of knowledge for effective breathing and posture, as well as fill your 'toolbox' with many practical methods to alleviate tensions and encourage optimal resonance. As I am an active professional singer, I teach largely through demonstration accompanied by easily understandable technical language aimed to resonate with the student's natural sense memory and vocabulary.

Voice Lessons - Jania F
Voice LessonsBurbank, CA

My name is Jania! I've been a professional singer since I was a child. My father is a guitarist and my mother is a singer. They met in a band! So, naturally, I fell in love with music! I started my career singing with The Winans (a gospel group), Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones, Bob Jovi..and many other singers and performers. I later went on to write songs for myself and other artists. I was also doing voiceovers...all before my 16th birthday! I signed a record deal with my sisters right out of high school. My determination and hard work helped me to be the singing voice of NBC & CBS soap operas and gave me a chance to start really developing my vocal style. I later wrote & recorded a national and international Dance/Pop song that blazed up the charts. I've been a featured singer with The B. B. King's All Star band that is featured on the Holland America cruise line. I had a chance to share my voice with people from all over the world! Throughout ALL of this, I've helped other singers unlock the magic within their own voice...just like my former vocal coaches did for me. As long as you're willing to work hard, challenge yourself, explore your own voice, and have a lot of fun...you'll become the singer of YOUR dreams! I promise.

Professional Singing Lessons - Lindsay H

I began taking voice lessons at the age of 12. I had the privilege of singing in some of the top middle school and high school choirs from the age of 12-18, including All District in Fairfax County, VA and All State Choir in VA. I was a member of the Madrigal singing group at McLean High School, which was ranked 14th in the nation at the time for high school choirs, for 3 of my 4 years there. I also participated in numerous musicals and vocal productions throughout my teenage years as well as singing as part of our nationally renowned jazz band. Following high school, I went on to earn a Bachelor of Music degree from The Catholic University of America with an emphasis on Musical Theatre. During my time, I worked professionally doing musical theatre and choir, performing at venues such as Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception and The Kennedy Center. At that time, I began teaching voice and musical theatre classes at the Rockville Musical Theatre Center in Maryland, working with kids ages 6-18. I opened the door to my own studio in Los Angeles 2 years ago and have had some tremendous successes working with both kids and adults. I also play the piano and have an extensive music library.
