I’m Sydney Yien, a voice teacher and vocal coach excited about bringing singers to a higher level of vocal development right here in San Diego, CA. I help my students grow as a vocalist while building creative confidence. I work with my students on expanding dynamics, harmonization, cultivating healthy vocal habits, and maximizing the voice's flexibility and endurance. 


    In addition, I teach songwriting for students who want to create original music of their own. I equip them with multiple writing styles in one-on-one writing sessions and provide the tools they need to make their creations come to life. In addition to songwriting, I educate students on the fundamentals of recording on the DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) Logic Pro X. 

Playing an instrument is an important part of being a top singer. I teach piano and music theory to help students understand their craft on a deeper level. Maybe you will front a band and own the stage one day! Learning how to communicate what you are envisioning musically with your bandmates plays a big part in your success of putting on a great show!
