Hello fellow singers! My goal is to help you refine your own unique instrument and help you to express a story and art through the voice! I grew up taking piano lessons and singing in my church and school choir. I always had a love for all classical music and soon enough fell in love with opera! I begin taking classical voice lessons at the age of 15 and soon realized that my heart and soul belonged to opera and had to continue my studies a lot more in depth. I went to UCLA where I received my Bachelor of Arts with my emphasis in Opera Performance. Throughout the years spent at UCLA, I not only continued to sing with choral groups, but also performed in every opera. I sang one of the principles roles in Ravel's L'enfant et les sortilèges, and sang one of the principles roles in many opera scenes such as Dorabella from Così fan tutte, Mercedes in Carmen, Second Lady in The Magic Flute, Nerone in L'incorazione di Poppea. Since I graduated college I have collaborated with nationally known directors, conductors, and voice teachers such as Peter Kazaras, James Darrah, Bruce Stasyna, Juliana Gondek, and Enrique Toral. I have sang in Master Classes given by Susan Graham and Bradley Moore. I have performed roles with Astoria Music Festival, Miami Music Festival, Opera NEO, and San Diego Opera. As a teacher my job is to use my knowledge and experience to help my students learn to sing with as much ease as possible, while refining the instrument for the classical repertoire. I not only focus on technique, but also diction and artistry, because as singers we are story tellers.
About Sarabeth B.

I am a UCLA alumnus with a degree in Vocal Performance and a current graduate student at USC for Vocal Arts Performance. As a voice teacher in Los Angeles, I use my knowledge and professional performance experience, as an opera singer, to help my students learn to sing with as much ease as possible while refining the instrument for the classical and musical theater repertoire. I not only focus on technique, but also diction, artistry, performance practice, and audition prep. My lessons are typically split between technical exercises and detailed work on the song of the student's choice. My philosophy is to use the Classical technique, as a foundation to help singers find sustainability and clarity in their sound regardless of what music they sing. All lessons are private, one-on-one sessions. It is best for teenagers and older, and those who are serious about improving their voice. I am a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing.
