Great attitude, patient and professional

Roger is a patient teacher who helped me get some of the fundamentals of guitar down. He is very professional and worked with me to reach my goals. He also has a positive attitude and would be great for students at any level.

About Arrica

I was born and raised in Los Angeles but I've just recently relocated to the Bay Area. I am a Professional Musician/Songwriter/Vocalist teaching songwriting, voice, and performance technique as well as a combination thereof.

Arrica is a wonderful singing coach! My nine-year-old daughter thoroughly enjoys their time together each week. Arrica always follows my daughter’s lead and gauges her interest in particular songs while also giving input and suggestions that further her progress and challenge her at just the right level. Her kind and patient demeanor has also helped my daughter, whom is somewhat shy, feel completely at ease. I can see through my daughter’s lesson with Arrica that she is very passionate and committed to her work. I would whole-heartedly recommend Arrica to anyone whom is looking for an amazing singing coach.

Thanks to Arrica, I'm learning to sing!

Arrica is a talented singer, songwriter and musician. I have been taking lessons from her for several months and have witnessed significant improvement. There is no getting around the need to practice regularly (in order to see results) but Arrica provides the encouragement and guidance necessary to make the effort enjoyable and rewarding. She is very accommodating when it comes to scheduling, lesson planning, etc. She is kind, generous and a joy to spend time with. I highly recommend her!

Skye A. Berkeley, CA

About Skye

I am a classically trained soprano with a special passion for folk songs. I also love to work with my vocal students on musical theater and pop styles. *** Lesson Details *** My lessons start with gentle physical stretches and breathing exercises. I will lead you through a series of vocal warm-ups, starting with very simple lip trills and progressing to longer scales and arpeggios. If you choose, then we will work on ear training and sight-singing to help you understand your printed music. After that, we work on songs we choose together, based on what music you are passionate about singing and what repertoire level seems right for you. Through your songs, we will work on diction, phrasing, breath support, tension, and the joy of interpreting a song in your own way. I provide ...

I am just about to finish my first set of lessons with Skye (and just signed up for another set). I am thrilled to be working with Skye! Skye is helping me learn some choir pieces. We get alot done in our 30 minutes together, plus she sends me a recording of our session via an email link, which enables me to practice throughout the week. Singing with Skye has really improved my confidence and is helping me expand my range and sight reading abilities. Thank you, Skye! Janis Sowder

Singing lessons with Skye

It's been awhile since I've had singing lessons. Skye was able to pick up from where I left off. She is patient and knowledgable about the technical aspects of voice, warming up, sight reading and walking through new songs in Italian, French and Spanish.

She's also got a beautiful voice of her own. I highly recommend working with Skye.

Passionate teacher

I have enjoyed taking conga drum lessons from Edgardo the last few months. Edgardo brings many years of professional experience, attention to detail, vast amounts of patience, and a lively sense of humor to each lesson. He concentrates on the fundamentals while still making the lessons fun. Also Edgardo conveys the history of the instrument and the music as we tackle new rhythms. His passion for the instrument and teaching clearly show. I look forward to making a lot of progress on the conga drum this year with Edgardo's help.

Salsa musica a gozar!

More than an excellent teacher of technique and rhythm, Edgardo teaches music - the music of the drum and the music of playing conjunto in a band.

About Rachel

I love teaching! I love that everybody has different learning styles, experiences, and goals. I've taught singing, vocal technique, and music performance in a wide range of contexts both in the US and the UK for 10 years. I studied the fantastic Estill Voice Training System in both places, which has led to my work in vocal recovery. From being an instructor for several years at Queen's University in Belfast, UK to working with individuals and community groups, I've built an understanding of how to help you the learner meet your goals in rock, pop, jazz, and even in recovering your voice after a voice injury or illness. In addition, I'm a well-seasoned musician so can provide industry experience as well as guitar, songwriting, and performance coaching for auditions, gigging or ...
