Our Mission

What We

Believe In

We’re a nonprofit singing and artist development school based in Orange County whose goal it is to teach you the styles and techniques you want to learn. We shape well-rounded musicians out of all sorts of people: young, not-so-young, pre-professional, and casual.

Vocal coaching is our specialty, but we’re more than happy to provide you with top notch guitarpiano, and  songwriting lessons, accompanied by a wide range of performance opportunities.

We can honestly say we’ve taught students all across the board, including ones who performed on Broadway, rocked out in metal, country, rock, and pop bands, attended prestigious music colleges like Berklee School of Music and USC Thornton, and sang on the Disney Channel and Nickelodeon.

But this isn’t about their journey, it’s about yours.

Our Philosophy

 

We strive to provide a creative environment for you to shine in

Musical proficiency encompasses more than good technique

A truly proficient musician is creative, can reason about music, and possesses real-world skills on top of technical know-how. We develop the whole artist. We not only give students solid musical foundations, but we encourage them to experiment with song interpretation and songwriting if they desire. Depending on your end goals, you may choose to learn extra-musical skills like microphone technique, recording, audition preparation, and stage performance.

You learn best when you tackle the genres and repertoire you enjoy

Music education shouldn’t be about stuffing students into tidy, predesigned boxes. It should revolve around evaluating the student’s goals and building curriculum for the individual. The only ‘right’ way to sing is the way that allows you to healthily pursue the style you enjoy.

Happy teachers mean happy students

As a company, we believe that we have two customers: our students and our teachers. By treating our teachers with the respect and fairness they deserve, we get to pick from cream-of-the-crop applicants and provide the best possible music education to our students.

Our Teachers

 

A Few Reasons Why Our Teachers are the Best

Our teachers have one or more college degrees related to music, or the educational and performance equivalent. 

Each one of our Molly’s Music teachers on staff receive thorough background checks, and go through an extensive interview process. The safety and security of our students is very important to us — and it should be important to you.

All of our music teachers are voice teachers. Most of them are also experts at another instrument. We became a singing-centric institution organically, when it dawned on us that voice is the central element to so many musical domains.

They excel in everything from Bel Canto opera to electronica and most things in between. We can accommodate almost any genre you like, but we’re not afraid to tell you if we can’t (we’re still working on finding someone who can teach healthy Tuvan throat singing).

Since we regularly host free music pedagogy workshops for them, they are constantly changing and improving. Music is always changing, and so should music pedagogy. Think of music pedagogy as a means to an end—a toolbox you can use to attain the sound you want. We are always developing new tools to achieve new sounds and styles.

Our teachers are reliable. A predictable lesson schedule is just as important for our students’ progress as a musically gifted instructor, so during the hiring process, we look for reliability as much as we assess music background. We know the stereotype about unreliable musicians, but believe it or not, dependable rock stars are out there, and we’ve tracked them down for you!

Our Services

 

Teaching you the music you’re passionate about

Self-Accompaniament

Self-Accompaniament

Want to learn to accompany yourself on an instrument? We can train your voice, and give you the instrumental and coordinative foundation you need to sing and play. Many students use one lesson slot for both vocal and instrument coaching.

Songwriting

Songwriting

We have teachers with extensive experience in writing and music composition. Songwriting is a unique blend of creativity, music theory, and technical knowhow. We can get you started on the road to understanding song structure, chord relationships, and lyricism. You provide the inspiration..

Microphone Technique

Microphone Technique

Learning how to sing with a microphone is important if you’re planning on performing or recording. Heck, it’s not a bad idea for your local karaoke night either. We’ll teach you things like how to modify consonants to avoid pops, where to hold the mic, and how to get the tone you want.

Performance Technique

Performance Technique

What good is knowing how to sing or shred when you can’t show off your skills on stage? Performance technique isn’t only crucial to those who want to perform their music, it’s also fundamental to public speaking and leadership. We’ll will help you banish stage fright and get you shredding in no time.

Audition Prep

Audition Prep

Auditions are a subset of performance, but they require a set of skills all on their own. Learn to choose the most flattering passages, how to cut music, how to confidently answer interview questions, and generally how to navigate these intensely stressful situations.

Sound Recording

Sound Recording

We have a professional-quality recording studio at our Orange location. If we’re advertising ‘the whole package,’ we think it’s important to provide students with facilities to learn recording techniques, record demos, and put out the occasional Mother’s Day medley.

OCSA Prep

Orange County School of the Arts (OCSA) is one of the most prestigious and selective arts schools in the country. Luckily, we’ve prepared countless students for successful auditions there and can give you a leg up, too!” With a link to the OCSA section of our Audition page. 

A Message About

Molly

Molly’s Music was founded by Molly Webb, a singer and pianist whose musical journey spans 2.5 decades, with stops along the way to sing for the pope, pass Certificate of Merit at the highest level, study with Gwen Verdon and Ben Vereen, and record an original album. Her experience was anything but linear, bouncing from classical to contemporary to theatrical spheres, on three corners of the United States, with uncountable mentors. It became her mission to provide students with the opportunity to get such a flexible education in one place. And so here we are.

Testimonials

 

What Parents & Students are Saying

“Before finding Molly’s Music, I tried three other teachers, all who weren’t right for various reasons. Once I found Molly’s, we never looked back.”

Derek W. – Guitar Student

“We brought my daughter up with a strictly classical background, and her last teacher scoffed at the idea of pop and rock music as ‘relevant.’ Since attending Molly’s, my daughter has made leaps and bounds in her playing and singing because she’s actually motivated to practice what she likes.”

Jon S. – Parent

“I really need to thank Molly’s Music for helping me prepare for my OCSA audition. (My teacher) really understood what it took to get ready.”
