Margaret G. San Francisco, CA

About Margaret

I am an opera singer and I teach and perform in and around San Francisco. I love teaching and sharing my knowledge of singing and the musical arts with others. I believe with the right instruction and determination anyone has the ability to sing! I have training in classical singing as well as in musical theater, pop/rock, gospel and blues. In order to sing these different styles it is important to know how the voice works functionally so that it is trained properly and remains healthy. I use the Somatic Voicework™- The LoVetri Method because it is a body-based method of vocal training which draws from many disciplines, and is based upon voice science and medicine as well as traditional classical vocal training. It can be used for almost any singing genre such as musical theater, ...

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.

I am very glad that I found a good teacher. Perfect for me, perfect for anybody who wants to sing professionally. Teacher Audrey is very professional, nice and artistic. She explains what's the logic behind and what's going on when we sing as well as singing practice. So far I have only had three classes but I feel more confident and it improves the quality of my everyday life as well. Being taught by Audrey is helping tremendously not only singing but also other areas as well. If you need a singing teacher she is number one.

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.

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.
Robert A. Berkeley, CA

About Robert

I am one of the most in-demand classical bassists in California. I actively play with 5 orchestras as a contracted member and several more as a guest. In addition to orchestral I do lots of recording sessions at Skywalker Ranch for film and video game scores. My free time Is very limited, but I am committed to teaching in addition to performing. In my lessons I stress not just technique, but more critically, how to self-diagnose problems in one's playing. Many of my students have gone on to major universities and conservatories to pursue careers in music.
