He will evaluate students what the vocal issues students have and what things need to be developed. Then, he will help to strengthen it accordingly.

Learn to move through vocal exercises with ease while crafting your voice, tone, and style. But most importantly, learn to take your voice and turn it into SONG. Singing songs is where most of my training has come from and I’m a firm believer that singing the tunes you love will teach your voice how best to interpret notes, follow intervals, explore dynamics, and gain control. Don’t just sing, PERFORM.
Hey there!! My name is Jameson and I'm a professional recording artist (singer, songwriter, and producer) based in Los Angeles, CA. I'm also an experienced musician and live performer with over 20 years of study and industry experience. Lessons in my studio are about so much more than just learning to sing a song or analyze music**. Students are instilled with technique, work ethic, real-world business knowledge, and confidence so they can truly accomplish whatever they set their minds to. We go deep focusing on how to develop new mental and physical habits that can help you better express yourself. Every student gets a handcrafted curriculum that is specifically catered to meet their goals and needs, and of course, that I hope is fun too! Singing is one of the most vulnerable things a person can do!–which is why it's so important to me that I provide not only criticism and critique, but also praise and validation. I've learned that we do our best work when we can feel hopeful, proud, and supported in our individuality. We can only improve by putting ourselves out there, which means you failing (a lot!). From lesson one, I will begin instilling you with knowledge and confidence, while always providing you opportunities to build up your independence. I will be right there with you in the trenches, celebrating your wins with you, calling you out on your excuses, and reminding you to recognize both the big and small changes as you move closer to your goals. I generally work with adults and teens (ages 16 and up) who are looking to build a career in the music and entertainment industry and/or have a serious passion for music. I've worked with students from ages 6-65, with a huge variety of backgrounds and interests–from complete beginners with no musical background or training to professional performing artists. Singing is a skill, and any skill can be learned with the right time and attention. If you show up once a week and put in the work, I guarantee that you will not only see improvement in your technical skills, but will also become a more confident singer within the first month of starting lessons. So what are you waiting for?? Let's do this! Jameson PS. I also offer the option of accompanying my students on the keyboard during lessons at no additional cost. **Reading music and music theory knowledge is useful, but not required.
Beginner- Exploring the vast canon of musical theater to find your personal niche, beginning singing technique appropriate to show tunes, and learning how to let go of self-consciousness so it's fun to sing in front of others! Intermediate- Building your repertoire and audition options, adding skills to your technique, learning how to appropriately act the song. Advanced- Refining skills and technique, focus on performance.
I believe that there is so much more than just technique, to learning to sing and create music. Something I've learned from my own voice teachers is the importance of both good technique and of feeling emotionally relaxed, comfortable, and free. Singing is such a personal experience because our body is literally our instrument. If we are tense, or holding ourselves back, it will reflect in our voice. The more at ease and confident we learn to feel in ourselves, the more beautiful and full a sound we can achieve. Another thing I've learned in my many years of musical training and teaching, is that in order to learn holistically and sustainably, we need to learn to love and honor our process of learning and to find out what works for us and what we need at any given moment or stage in our growth and development. When I teach I try to remember that during each lesson or practice session, we may need different things at each moment. I hope to use my sensitivity and empathy to stay attuned to all of my students and to foster an environment where we feel confident to listen to and speak up for our needs - emotionally, physically, and energetically. For instance, if we need to rest, let’s rest! If we feel tense or nervous, let’s take a minute to shake it out, stretch, breathe, dance or run around the room. If we feel discouraged, let’s take some time to focus on what we know we are great at and reflect on all that we’ve learned so far. If we feel stagnant or restless, let’s try something new. Whatever you need, I want you to feel safe to know that you matter and I honor you showing up as you are. Whoever you are, wherever you are, know that I care and that I am here to work with you to help you grow and learn in all the ways that you can and need. I look forward to meeting you soon!

I used to be very unaware of the issues when I sing, as after a couple songs my vocal chords would be tired out and I would be unable to sing. He has helped tremendously so that I could correct these
