I have been teaching since 2011 in Los Angeles. The studio I managed included the vocal teachers Valerie Morehouse (Avril Lavigne, ABC's Nashville cast) and John Henny (Britney Spears). They mentored me in healthy techniques for all styles of singers. My students have worked in television, theatre, film and the music industry.
I received my Master of Arts degree from New York University and have performed in theatre, television, commercials and film. I played the role of Christmas Eve in Phoenix Theatre's Avenue Q.
I am passionate about healthy singing and helping all levels of singers achieve their goals.
I enjoy the process of watching my students grow, whether they are singing for fun or on stage! Music has always been an integral part of my life and I hope to spread any knowledge and joy I can through teaching.
Rose has been wonderful to work with. She has an excellent sense of humor and a very positive attitude. She creates a "safe atmosphere" for students to try new things without worry or embarrassment. She is obviously well educated and experienced in the music field. She is fun to work with. I look forward to each lesson.
Rose is such a fun and amazing personality. She is an incredibly talented, attentive, and supportive teacher. It says a lot that after working with her, I consider her a good friend.
Rose is an incredibly imaginative, patient, and inspiring teacher. She always comes up with creative ways of explaining techniques that really help you visualize and understand the concepts. She is passionate about music and loves teaching - as a student you feel that and it makes you excited to learn.
My process includes getting to know my student first. I want to know his or her goals and vocal style. Once I make that initial introduction, I will warm him or her up with a variety of vocal exercises to get to know range and passagio. After the exercises, I will work on the material with the student. I have a wide range of repertoire so I can also suggest songs that will promote the most growth.
I have a Master of Arts degree in Theatre and Vocal Performance from New York University. I studied Musical Theatre, Dramaturgy, Dance/Movement, Music Theory and Musicianship. I also trained with renowned vocal coaches Valerie Morehouse and John Henny.
In Los Angeles, I charged $100 per hour but am flexible due to the cost of living variance.
I managed a vocal studio for Valerie Morehouse and John Henny. They mentored me and also taught me how to accompany my students on the piano.
All levels - as young as 5 and into adulthood. The majority of my students are working entertainment professionals ranging from television actors to recording artists.
I co-produced a charity fundraiser for the homeless entitled "Broadway to the Rescue" in Los Angeles. Working with television and Broadway stars for such a wonderful cause was a phenomenal experience and one I am proud to have been a part of.
My advice would be to work with a teacher who challenges you while also creating a nurturing environment. You have to feel safe enough to take risks. You will only grow by making mistakes!
1. What aspect of my voice would I like to improve? (Range, pitch, vibrato, volume, etc)
2. How much time can I spend practicing? As Malcolm Gladwell stated: "Practice isn't the thing you do once you're good. It's the thing you do that makes you good."
3. What kind of a learner am I?
