Experienced Piano TeacherWest Hollywood, CA

Hi there!My name is Kimberley, and I'm a British singer/songwriter, and I love teaching young people about this amazing industry! I offer songwriting, singing and piano lessons. My first rule is that there isn't any! Each student is unique and different, and my goal is to teach in a way that's fun and interesting and keeps people engaged.I teach all ages, young and old, novice to experienced, and take great joy in meeting new people and getting to know them and helping them learn.I teach at your home or we can sit outside in my apartment by the pool, we can even go to a park and sit in the sunshine! I'm really flexible and want this to work for you at your own pace to help you reach your own goals.I got my A-Levels (undergraduate equivalent) at one of England's most prestigious colleges, and was extremely lucky that I had music scholarships to a number of top private schools in the UK.I received one of the highest marks ever in the country for Grade 8 piano when I was 14 years old and I haven't looked back! I've performed all over the world as a singer, and have always incorporated my piano as much as I can. I have had a joint number one in the UK, as well as other singles in the charts and have done arena tours throughout the UK and Europe. I have masses of performance experience and a lot of industry contacts as well.Get in touch and we'll go from there! I'm excited to meet you and chat about what you want to achieve.

Classical Music Lessons - Kaela S
Classical Music LessonsLos Angeles, CA

After graduating from one of the world’s foremost Jazz Studies programs at the University of North Texas, I spent years developing and honing my craft as a professional performer, session musician, and composer in the styles of pop, jazz, classical, rock, soul, R&B, and indie/electronic music. While working tirelessly to advance my career as a recording artist I also worked with hundreds of students and became a mentor and role model to many, instilling confidence and fostering creativity!My comprehensive understanding of vocal technique is rooted in formal training but bolstered by the experience of thousands of gigs, most recently a demanding nine-month international tour as the synth/keys player and vocalist for M83. I have natural instincts for nurturing younger minds and I'm passionate about communicating complex ideas to learners in a fun way!

Professional Voice Teacher - maureen d
Professional Voice TeacherValley Village, CA

I sing because that is what I was made to do - I'm guessing that is why you sing too :) My mother was a USO/Big Band singer so I started at a very young age and was in my first professional show at 15. I currently sing Rockabilly in my own band (a combination of Jazz/Swing and Rock/Country) but studied opera "bel canto" technique - because you need to learn the rules so you can break them. I use a yoga breathing technique because singing is just talking and breathing with a little music added, no? It should come easily to you - your body knows how to do it. I'll just teach you how to refine your technique, stretch your range and find YOUR voice. I've taught at School of Rock since 2007, and was featured in Music Connection's "Hot For Teaching" (one of 6 teachers profiled across the U.S.) as well as Fox News (National). I attended music conservatory in New York and was in the original Tony-winning cast of "Into the Woods," toured the world singing at Carnegie Hall, toured the East Coast w/Grammy-winner Folk Rock singer Michelle Shocked, and then permanently moved to LA to write/record Rock & Roll for TV/Film. I have over 200 songs in movies & shows you watch regularly. So - we can work on mic technique, stage presence, songwriting, or just SINGING.
