Celia believes that anyone can improve as a singer with conscientious and diligent practice and continuing curiosity.

She loves to connect people with their own unique voice and expression, and her specialty is teaching people how to develop harmony singing skills. Her vocal coaching method, whether in a private session or a group workshop, emphasizes that growth is based on the acceptance of each student's unique voice.

My passion is helping people learn how to sing harmony, because it's not just about singing, it's about how to be with other people and make something work, make it beautiful; how to listen, be sensitive and mindful about what's going on -- both in the music and with your fellow singers. It's fascinating to see the many ways that people can hear something, and the ethos in harmony singing translates broadly to so much else in human action.

Celia integrates her classical training and professional experience in jazz, pop, Americana, rock and musical theater in her teaching. Celia is also co-founder of Empowered Singer Workshops in Los Angeles. She has given many professional and aspiring singers in Los Angeles the tools to improve their listening, blending, improvisational skills and vocal tone for group singing. For the past 15+ years, she has sung professionally from studios to stadiums, as she currently tours internationally as a backup singer as well as in support of her own work as the female half of Petty Chavez. Celia is an accomplished singer-songwriter who has released five recordings of her original songs and two singles on indie labels. This combined experience makes her uniquely suited to the challenges of both singing for hire and singing as an artist.
