My name is Erin SuJan, and I am a voice and performing arts teacher born and raised here in Southern California. I began training as a performer at the age of 4. My vocal training started at the age of 8, and I have been singing professionally and just for fun ever since. I am classically trained in Bel Canto technique, and I love to sing Opera, Jazz, Old American Standards, Classic Rock, and some Pop. I spent 4 years in Honolulu, Hawaii performing and teaching voice and acting lessons to children and adults. During my stay there, I established my own studio and also taught for private and non-profit organizations. I also taught Lower Elementary Music in the classroom for 2 years at Waikiki Elementary School (Hawaii Public School System).  I pride myself on my ability to produce results while training my students to use their bodies as healthy and well-trained instruments. I use technique and mindful practice to help my students develop their own creative process.  The well-being and longevity of my students voices is my top priority.

I teach now because I love it!  A voice and performing arts teacher with over 5 years experience, I am also a Marketing and Content Creation Consultant, as well as a working Actor and Model.  My schedule is flexible, and I can teach during the day as well as evenings and weekends. I am happy to teach classes of multiple students and/or private lessons.

Please call at (301) 325-3227, or email me at [email protected] to schedule a free consultation. I look forward to meeting you!

The thing I love most about teaching is watching my students grow.  It's so rewarding for me!  Those "aha!" moments when a new technique or method clicks for someone and pushes them to the next level are verything to me!

    Erin is an exceptional voice instructor. She is very patient with young children and is able to teach music theory along with vocal coaching. I recommend her 100%! She is not only extremely talented, but makes her students shine!

How did you get started teaching?

I began teaching voice as a hobby when I lived in Honolulu.  I began getting so many requestes that I deceided to turn it into a career!  By the time I left Honolulu 5 years later, I had a studio of over 20 students.

Ages 4 and up; professional and amateur singers; children and adults with learning disabilites.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure that your teacher is very protective of her/his students' voices.  You want someone who has a holistic perspective and seeks to train thier students as musicians and artists, not just as singers.  


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

"Why do I want to study singing?"

"What are my goals for this, and am I ready to be challenged in order to get there?"

"How long am I committed to trying this out before I decide if I like it or not?"

"How do I learn best, and how can I communicate that to my teacher?"
