I teach many different styles of singing, piano instruction and arranging, making my studio more versatile than most. I've been teaching for almost 30 years and have sung, played and music directed professionally all over the country.
There is nothing like music to inspire and heal, so I love to help others tap into their talent and passion as well.
You can see me perform on my FB page: Patti Rabaza and some of my students on my studio page: Rabaza Studios
I love seeing the improvent as people sing better and especially how it is a huge boost to self esteem
Patti is friendly and does not intimidate my middle-schooler but does hold her accountable. She works very hard to accommodate our difficult schedule. She knows so much, and is able to put it into words my 13-year-old can understand. She has vastly improved my daughter's sight reading and breathing and is very mindful of safe practices that protect my daughter's voice, which is wonderful because all my musical theater kid wants to do is belt it out! And, having students work toward a recital gives them a goal and a chance to perform in a safe environment. She coached my daughter through HSPVA auditions and callbacks, played piano for her theater video auditions, and really helped her grow her range. I would not hesitate to recommend Patti to anyone.
I saw a tremendous amount of growth in my time working with Patti. I am now in college but I worked with Patti from 7th grade-senior year of high school and hope to work with her more while I’m home. Patti took time to really grow my voice technically and as someone who typically sings alto she helped me grow my head voice a lot and by sophomore year of high school I was also being asked to sing soprano 2 instead of just alto 1 or alto 2. I would highly recommend Patti to anyone especially if you already have vocal experience but want to be pushed and continue to grow your voice even further.
I came to Patty after she was recommended to me by another student when I needed a new teacher. Her skill was evident from the first lesson and her very experienced guidance accelerated progress immediately. She is always cheery and positive, and expresses her instruction in a way that is encouraging, succinct, and easy to understand. Patty makes you feel like you can definitely achieve all of your vocal goals while expertly helping you accomplish them one after the other. She also happens to be very pleasant and easy to work with. Definitely recommend!
Patti is so kind. I worked with her often as a young performer. She builds student confidence like no other and provides exceptional technique training with her extensive background in many vocal styles. I typically worked on musical theater pieces with her and Patti helped me land many roles as well as always provided positive feedback.
I usually listen to a new student sing something that they love to get a feel for his or her voice and performing ability. From there, I start where you are. I now have students performing all over the world
