Tracey H. San Francisco, CA

I've studied Music Theory at Berklee College of Music and Musician's Institute (AA Degree - Voice/Vocal Performance).

About Tracey

I've been singing, performing, songwriting, and studying voice for 17 years. I attended Berklee College of Music, where I studied Voice/Vocal Performance, and earned an Associate of Arts Degree in Vocal Performance from Musician's Institute in LA. I've been teaching since 2006, and work with a wide range of contemporary genres with a focus on rock, pop, country, folk, Americana, R&B, blues, and soul. I like to take a "back-to-basics" approach to voice by helping students develop the core aspects of breathing/breath control, correct vowel placement/vowel tuning, and a focus on muscle memory as it relates to stretching the cords. I've been told my approach is simple yet effective, and a unique blend of classic concepts with a practical/modern approach to ...

One amazing teacher!

Tracey is a phenomenal voice teacher and I highly recommend her! She's organized, professional and very musically talented. But more than that, Tracey is extremely adept at communicating the subtle and hard to grasp vocal techniques that are so difficult to put into words. In addition to using analogies, she's great at using visual cues (drawings, arrows, notation# and relating vocal movements to colors, physical movements and sensations. She was more than willing to adapt her lessons for me so that I can gain the best understanding.

I have had other teachers in the past, and while they were all talented and very nice, only Tracey has been able to help me improve my singing voice. I improved more in 3 lessons with her than I did in 8 months of lessons with a previous teacher.

Tracey is also very kind and patient #very necessary with beginners!) and very good at correcting without criticizing. She went way out of her way to accomodate my schedule and even comes to my house for the lessons. I think she's the best and I'm sure you will too!

Students will learn music theory as it applies to piano playing and music playing. Music theory includes scales, key signature, arpeggios, modes, chords, ear training, solfege and more.

About Anthony

Having an ear for music of all styles and genres, I had an interest in playing music and instruments at a very young age. At just 5 years old, I took my first piano lesson. I studied with that piano teacher for another 10 years, working on technique, theory and classical music, including playing piano recitals as a performer. I practiced piano to become a solo classical musician. Then in middle school, I joined the symphonic band where I was exposed and learned to play instruments in the percussion section, including drums, xylophone and marimba, and other instruments. At the same time, I joined the middle school jazz band. This was my first transition both as a piano player and musician into a new genre of music and playing. Needless to say, I fell in love with the music. In 2005, I ...

I feel incredibly lucky to have found Brent. He puts a lot more time, energy and enthusiasm into his lessons than I ever would have expected. He is able to integrate theory and technical details into playing particular and diverse pieces, keeping things fun the whole time. He is a very skilled player as well as a talented and patient teacher, who would likely work well with players of any level or musical taste.

A singer songwriter musician friend of mine recommended Brent to us when I put out the word we were looking for a guitar teacher for our son, Mael. That was a year and a half ago and I feel very lucky to have found him because my son adores him and has made consistent progress under his skillful, patient and good humored instruction! My son and Brent have an easy and genuine rapport and it was clear to me from the beginning that this was going to be a good fit. (Basically Mael worships him). I am a little more objective but I also have nothing but positive things to say. He is both flexible and reliable and has a real affinity with kids, in addition to being a highly trained and talented musician. I recommend him wholeheartedly. --Diane Davis

I just finished my final lesson with Angel and he has brought my voice to a whole new level. Angel taught me so many skills that I will use for the rest of my life. He has a way of patiently getting your voice to where it needs to go to thrive. I can't thank him enough for all the work we did together!

Angel is a dream! At our first lesson I told Angel that I couldn't even sing Happy Birthday, he calmly and patiently assured me that I could and by the end of our first lesson I was singing a Gloria Estefan song. It was kind of magical. Angel makes you feel 100% a home and comfortable so you can focus on the singing.

Teach traditional and 20th century harmony, ear training with intervalic, melodic and harmonic dictation. teach classical jazz and modern theory. Traditional to Modern Theory.

About Benjamin

I have been studying music my entire life. I first sat down at the piano at four years old and have never strayed. After attending a performing arts high school, I studied music composition and theory at San Francisco Conservatory of Music. My studies not only enhanced my passion for music, but gave me an understanding of it and the listening experience. My desire to share this love and excitement led me to become a piano teacher. Developing my own teaching practice has required intense organizational skills and independent motivation and enhanced my ability to work with others as I interact with my students, their teachers, and parents. In this position, I have had the pleasure of expanding my students’ musical understanding by introducing them to new and different styles and ...

Benjamin is excellent, a music theory whisperer. In a few hours, my son went from a complete block to totally understanding and completing of all the music theory he was assigned. Most of all, he now understands the concepts and application and use. Really amazing work, incredible teacher. Can't say enough.

I'm a beginner piano player. Somehow Ben got me to actually play and read music which is amazing because I always though it was too difficult. He constantly keeps me on my toes with different songs, theory lessons, exercises, book suggestions, the list goes on. And he'll totally catch you if you try to cheat finger techniques (which is what I do constantly), but he's not harsh about it.

If you want to learn piano and theory, he's your guy.

Benjamin is awesome! I'm a pianist and composer. I was taking from a guy who was kind of strict and stifling as to what I could and couldn't do. There was nothing really creative about it, and I needed to free up my creativity somehow.

I think the music I'm writing now is much better. Using improvisation and new ways of thinking, I've gained great new perspective on the music I write, the music I play, and my creative process in general. Basically, Benjamin helps me to stop censoring myself. I have lots more material to choose from. It can be overwhelming, but in a great way.

Benjamin is friendly and encouraging and most importantly super creative and musical. He works you hard, but he's an easygoing nonjudgmental guy and I recommend him without hesitation for anybody wanting to grow musically.

About Annie

Annie welcomes singers of all styles into her studio and encourages you to discover what a greater understanding of breath, vowel, and alignment can do for you. Studying voice privately is beneficial to anyone who would like to have more confidence in their singing or public speaking voice. It can greatly enhance your musical and language abilities as well as build your confidence on stage and in daily life. Beginner to intermediate piano students also welcome. Younger students are encouraged to take 1/2 hour of piano alongside 1/2 hour of voice to build musical skills. Express yourself through music!
