Piano, Voice

Cynthia Speer (Cindy) grew up in the Deep South of Louisiana and Mississippi.  Playing piano since age 4 and singing publicly since her teenage years, she is happy to bring her experience to children of all ages to inspire and educate them in music.  She performed, playing solo piano and singing, as well as singing with Big Bands and smaller groups (Blues and Jazz Standards), in Jackson Mississippi, Buena Vista Colorado, then here in Los Angeles since the mid 1980’s.  One of her first gigs in LA was playing solo piano and singing at the Sidewalk Cafe’ in Venice Beach, down the street from where she lived at that time.

Cindy has performed at Weddings, Private Parties, Restaurants and Nightclubs in and around Los Angeles for the past 35 years, and has done many jazz gigs with Lana’s Dad, and founder of Santa Monica Music, Chico Fernandez.  She began teaching in 2001 and is happy to be inspiring children of all ages in their piano, preschool music and vocal lessons.

Working on an original project of a different genre with a band that she co-founded, is a huge passion for Cindy currently.  You will hear her keyboards and singing if you visit akashicalchemy.bandcamp.com. Once on the site, if the band name doesn’t come up right away, you can search for the “Artist” Akashic Alchemy.  A good tune to start with is “Sublime”.   Her name in the band is Ahnaleya.   Let us all remember...Music Heals!

Linda Mitchell

Voice

I have over thirty years experience in teaching students how to grow, improve and keep their voice.
The daughter of a big band leader, I have been around music since birth. I studied the Bel Canto method in High School and graduated from UCLA in Music Education. I did my masters study in Vocal Performance at WSU. I started studying opera and art song in high school. I was involved in musical theater at UCLA. I toured nationally with a folk-rock group as one of the featured soloists. Michael Omartian, who became a legendary producer, was our composer and arranger. I started my vocal studio when raising a family in Santa Barbara, CA. I taught vocal training at a community college at the time. I later taught at Green River Community College in Auburn, WA for four years. Through the years, I have helped students of all ages, skills and ambitions attain their goals. One of my recent students, Lana Condor, starred in a Netflix movie, "To all the Boys I've Loved Before", which has been enormously successful. I helped her gain a great deal of self-confidence through vocal lessons with me. I directed musical theater for seven years, working with performers of all ages. I was the vocal coach for such productions as "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers", "Annie", "Peter Pan", Pirates of Penzance", to name a few. I bring to my students experience, a successful track record, thorough knowledge of the voice and a great love for what I do!!
