Music Teacher - Sean R
Music TeacherCypress, CA

Thank you for checking out my profile!My name is Sean Roberts and I'm a professional working musician. I've been performing for over 30 years and teaching for over 17. Most of my students have gone on to become successful musicians themselves and I couldn't be more proud.When selecting a music teacher, consider their teaching style. Do they teach you the basics first or throw you in the deep end? A qualified and experienced teacher can make a big difference in the success of any student.Private instruction lets me tailor your lessons to match your goals, interests and learning pace of the individual student -- all in a fun, relaxed and musical atmosphere.

Professional Singing Lessons - Paula J

As soon as you hear the music of singer & songwriter Karma who is based out of Los Angeles, CA; you will quickly realize that not all Karma is bad. She describes her style as R&B sprinkled with a twist of Hip Hop and Soul. Since the age of 7, Karma who was born Paula Renee Joseph absorbed every ounce of music she heard which eventually led her to embark on her own music career. Appreciating music from artists who may not be number one on the charts all the time, Karma notes artists such as Teedra Moses & Aaliyah as influences in addition to legends such as Mary J. Blige, Gladys Knight, Lauryn Hill & of course Aretha Franklin just to name a few. Choosing to pursue singing was a serious decision for Karma once she realized jaws dropping followed by applause when she would imitate her favorite singers that came on the radio while she was growing up. Karma learned at an early age that being versatile with music would lead to a well rounded career so she immersed herself in to Jazz, R&B, Soul, Hip Hop plus Pop music to help cultivate a unique style all her own.Karma realized early on that aspiring to be a great singer & songwriter is one thing but building a solid music resume is another. With the goal to create music that doesn’t have an expiration date & to become a brand that people can relate to more so than just an artist, Karma jumped feet first in to writing, singing & production. Not only has Karma been the back-up singer for several artists including Sharon Maree, Steve Harris, Brooke Taylor, Sheena Player & Amber Melody; Karma has also written songs for several artists exclusively under Heat Pharm Productions when she was a songwriter. Karma has performed at a number of venues in Southern California including M Bar, Hollywood Bar and Grill, Cohibas Night Club and Lounge, House of Blues, Waterfront, Hollywood Park Casino & The Airliner.After earning her degree in sound engineering and post production from the Los Angeles Recording School and a degree in Liberal Arts, Karma went on to teach music to the youth in the inner city. While fulfilling her dream of giving back to her community she began touring with a band called the Love Revolution. She also performed with international recording artist Minh in Vegas opening up for both the Isleys Brothers and Maze & Frankie Beverly at the Las Vegas Hilton. Karma went on to release her debut mixtape project titled, “The Good Karma Project” which includes songs “My Room” & “Patient.” Having produced and written the bulk of the project herself, the project has received a lot of major buzz from fans and allowed Karma to expand her online fan base. The project earned her features in The Hype Magazine, Fresh Ndef, LA Talk Live, Naughty Down Radio, Always Therro, cookiBOX, Pure Soul Magazine, Qubeey, Daftstar, Smashex TV, Every Way Woman, and Parallel Music just to name a few.Most recently Karma has performed on tour with Carnival Cruises overseas where she expanded her musical repertoire into genres such as Motown, country, rock, alternative and jazz standards. Realizing that being an artist is not enough, Karma recently launched her own company Good Karma Entertainment and also runs her own studio as well.To find out more about Karma visit www.karmatheartist.com
