Teacher Highlight: Roz Esposito

March 20, 2020

 

This week we would like to take the time to highlight one of Arts & Learning’s talented instructors. Roz Esposito is a vocal coach, playwright, composer, and lyricist, who teaches vocal classes at the Conservatory.  We are proud to have her on our team and excited to have her teach one of our first ZOOM classes, coming soon.

 

“I believe that all things are possible and that progress is made easily in a supportive, fun, creative environment!”

 

Roz graduated the Mannes College of Music in New York City as a voice major and went on to sing professionally as a soloist and background singer for national TV and radio commercials, including, I Love New York, which she sang with the late Luther Vandross. Her voice and original songs have been featured on national TV, on the Lifetime channel, in daytime drama and in Off-Broadway productions.

Studying with the top vocal coaches in New York City gave Roz a deep understanding of how sound is produced and how to break through our inhibitions and allow our “true voice” to emerge. She’s been teaching children and adults, both privately and in schools and centers, for 30+ years. While still living in New York City, she coordinated the music program at The Jewish Guild for the Blind and The Bridge, a halfway house for adults with mental challenges. After moving to Los Angeles in 1998, Roz became the music teacher at the Frances Blend School for visually challenged elementary children. Roz approaches everything with enthusiasm, encouragement and patience. She believes that self-expression is vital to us all, and can be easily accessed in a safe supportive space.

Currently, Roz’s original musical, Living Over the Rainbow, is being ushered to Broadway by a two-time Tony nominated Broadway producer. She is ecstatic about bringing her talents to Arts and Learning and looks forward to collaborating with the team to make magic happen!

Be on the look out for her new Singing for Musical Theatre (4th grade and up) online class!

ALC Alumni Reflections

Arts and Learning have changed my life by making me such a better person. It also made me way more outgoing because when I first started arts and learning I was super shy but it just taught me that whenever I enter the stage I should go all out and not be afraid to shine and be that character. I love arts and learning because too me it feels as if it’s just a second home. I feel as if all my cast members and directors are just my family.

They always know how to make me such a happy girl and I always have a blast working with every single one of them. I’m so glad I started arts and learning when I was young because it showed me that even when I grew up and went through some tuff times I could always count on acting for being such a great hobby of mine and make me the happiest girl alive. I do not regret ever starting acting it’s such an amazing place!
