FAQ and Philosophies

Repertoire Coaching

David Jayden Anthony is known for having students prepared with the most interest and exciting repertoire in Southern California. There is an emphasis on contemporary musical theatre because we want you to have a career in this century! While we understand that there is such a thing as revival productions and that you MUST understand the classics to understand the art form, the bulk of your study should be the tunes and undiscovered gems from the last 20 years because that is the CURRENT state of the art form!

Audition Preparation

Find the perfect song, develop a strong character, get a practice piano track and know that you are walking in to that audition fully prepared.

Audition Videos

So many auditions are video submission now. We can make audition videos in your lessons with live accompaniment. (We suggest booking a two hour slot so there can be coaching and enough takes for the perfect video.)

Power Through Relaxation

We will help eliminate all tension in the body, face and neck to help you access the effortless power within!

Live Accompaniment

Your voice teacher is also a pianist. This allows you to constantly work on material in a professional way. It also allows you to learn how to speak to an accompanist which is a completely language of it’s own.

Practice Tracks

Record accompaniment in your lessons, or get clean studio recordings of your songs to practice better.

Some differences in the AEoFIRE approach

Many voice teachers spend a large portion of the lesson on warmups and scales. THIS can potentially waste your time and money. While it is crucial for students to understand these concepts, (and they will be used to get over a specific hurdle) it should not dominate the time. Let’s make music! (Please warm up at home or in the car on the way)

I met David when my daughter was blessed to have him as the instructor of her school’s musical theater voice conservatory class. She came home after a few weeks of being under David’s instruction and begged, “Can I pleeeaaassse get David as a private voice teacher?” She said through all her years of musical theater voice training, she had never been challenged and encouraged in her vocal skills like she had by David.

We were able to arrange private voice lessons with David, and in a matter of months she went from struggling to control her singing gift to winning multiple and exclusive vocal competitions, along with being cast in lead roles. David not only taught her how to properly use her voice but helped her to expertly craft songs, bringing out the intent of each and every lyric. In a short amount of time, her younger sister, who is also passionate about musical theater, was under David’s instruction as well.

Both of my girls graduated from college and both are paid vocalists and performers today. They have had many fantastic teachers, instructors and mentors but have never found any to help them more than David. Even now, when they need a last-minute song choice, a vocal brush up, or just general encouragement, they reach out to David.

In the recent past, David has used our home as a base of instruction for his students in South Orange County. I have loved hearing his students progress, and I have personally witnessed many go from mediocre to exceptional after working with him. I wholeheartedly recommend David as a vocal instructor, and I truly believe that the students who end up with David are getting the best vocal training available.

David is my son’s vocal coach. We first met David in a show that he was the musical director for and was so impressed with his musical talent and ability to teach that we begged him to instruct my son.

We have been with David for over a year and have seen amazing improvement and technique in my son’s vocal abilities. More than teaching the technical part of voice and singing, David has instilled in my son a confidence that is unmatched. My son will go to Broadway one day because of David’s impression on his life and for that I will be eternally grateful.

David is our best kept secret. I selfishly want to keep him to myself and not let the world know of his greatness, but here I am recommending him on Linked In because it’s the right thing to do.

I see great feats in David’s future and one day I expect to see him with Tony in hand for music and lyric composition of some great Broadway musical, (that envitably my son will perform in). All joking aside, I truly believe this is where David is heading….Broadway greatness. And, I being one of his biggest fans will be cheering him on all the way.

Why AEoFire Lessons?

Why AEoFIRE Lessons?

Studying voice with David Jayden Anthony is different because in addition to learning how to read music and sing with proper vocal technique and style, you will also receive ACTING coaching for your songs. Most students study voice and acting separately and don’r really have a place where they can be put together seamlessly.

Most voice students also want to write their own songs. David is a trained Musical Theatre Composer and songwriter and can utilize the last 15 minutes of a lesson to cover best practices in songwriting and musical theatre creation.
