Acting, Broadway Singing, Classical Voice, Opera Voice, Singing, Vocal Training

About Me

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, pop/rock, jazz, blues, and opera. I believe that learning how to sing is not only fun but also increases confidence, improves general music skills, and develops mind/body coordination skills.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons consist of breath and body work, vocal warm-ups and exercises, and work on songs.

These skills can help any singer become more aware of their voice and how their body works as an instrument. Students are trained, like an athlete, to build up vocal strength and stamina to sing songs and styles of their choice.

In addition to private lessons I host student voice recitals twice a year. Performing in the recitals is not required but encouraged. This gives students the opportunity to perform in front of family and friends and to share their lovely voice with others!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Separate music room with mirror, chairs, music stand, and keyboard.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I use a 76 key Yamaha Keyboard at my home studio. I encourage the student to provide any kind of piano or keyboard with at least 61 keys if wanting lessons from their home.

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers classified as a Student Favorite
have taught a minimum of 25 lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.

Singing

About Me

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 basic accompaniment on piano or guitar.

*** Studio Equipment ***
in-home studio w/ f/w keyboard, music stands, electronic equipment, plenty of street parking w/ seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in folk, musical theater and classical song literature.

Piano, Singing

About Me

What’s special about learning music is every person’s musical journey is their own. My musical journey started on piano, which included singing and accompanying on piano (choir and chorales), and also learning clarinet, and violin.

It was clear in high school that my music journey would be through piano performance. I studied piano performance at UC Davis with Lois Brandwynne as well as accompanied the UC Davis Chamber Singers (Al McNeil, conductor) and for master voice instructor Stephanie Friedman (Mezzo Soprano). I discovered contemporary music while in a jazz fusion band "Melange" and also co-leading the UC Davis gospel choir (With Calvin Lymos) and landed at Berklee College of Music studying music composition, arranging, and ensemble performance graduating with a Bachelor’s of Music.

Professionally, I have played keyboards and sung back-up vocals at wedding gigs and special events. I have performed with chamber groups, classical soloists, and performed contemporary music with great musicians here in the Bay Area. After starting a family I took a long break. However, I am now back into music full time focusing on voice and piano instruction.  

My style is teaching music in an accessible way that provides a thorough foundation to help you meet your goals. Giving you the confidence to truly express yourself no matter your level of playing. Whether this is a hobby, or you are seeking performance at a higher level, or a beginner that always wanted to learn but never had the time (and now you do!), I am here to help get you started on your way to your musical journey.   Let’s get started!  

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons for piano entail the use of established piano series books at the appropriate level for the student. Music theory in addition to coverage of basic piano skills are covered. A beginning student should expect within 3-6 months (based on their efforts) should be able to play simple songs, play with both hands, and be able to read music at an basic level. 

Lessons for voice entail using material that is from an established voice teacher and music curriculum that extends from beginner to music college level. Learning correct techniques for breathing, learning scales for agility of the voice, and song interpretation/ material that is of the interest of the singer or enhances the learning of the material the singer wants to learn. For example, learning some basic elements of the blues enhances the singer wanting to learning pop, rock, jazz or R&B. At the 3-6 month point the voice student (based on their efforts) should be able to produce a reasonable tone, have a strong understanding of good breathing techniques, be able to sing simple songs at a basic level.

*** Studio Equipment ***
For voice (Highly prefer to teach at my studio or Voice Studio) I provide live piano accompaniments and pre-recorded accompaniments, microphone, record lessons for students to take home and listen to later. At the Voice Studio: Electronic Keyboard, microphone, live or recorded accompaniments, recorded lessons For piano lessons: I provide a Mason and Hamlin upright piano in excellent condition.

*** Travel Equipment ***
For piano the student provides the piano. For voice the student needs to provide a piano or keyboard. I bring my computer that can record the lesson as well as access other vocal training material.

*** Specialties ***
Voice: Pop, Rock, Jazz

Piano: Classical, Pop, Rock

About Me

With a degree in Vocal Performance from University of Michigan, I have a great deal of performance experience in opera, theatre, rock, jazz, and other styles. Lessons will be fun, engaging and effective! It all starts with the first one.

*** Lesson Details ***
With vocal lessons we can start from the very beginning or jump in with whatever training you've already had. If you love to sing classical music we can focus on classical technique. If you don't care for it much and just want to sing jazz, that we can do! If you love it all and you're not sure what you want to sing, we'll explore it all together. We will find an exciting pace and engaging lesson plan suited too your needs.

With acting and performance lessons, we will focus on your personal goals as a performer or public speaker and work to improve your speaking technique, your acting abilities and your communication skills. It's all about you!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a portable keyboard I can bring to you for our lessons.

About Me

-Teach beginners to advance
-Ages 10 and up
-I travel to you

Hi! My name is Lauren and I have been in love with music for most of my life. Since I was six, I have been singing in one way or another. In middle school I was in the school choir and I performed in a number of band concerts as a vocalist. In high school, I starred in our school's production of "Once Upon a Mattress" as Princess Winnifred the Woebegone. By senior year, I was approached by various faculty to perform our national anthem at three different school events including the NCS Women's basketball championship games. Later that year, I was unanimously chosen to sing our National Anthem at my high school graduation. In college, I started taking lessons in opera and fell completely in love with it. I performed in multiple recitals and was asked to perform in numerous charity events by my school's esteemed faculty.
Though my education is still in progress at Cal State East Bay, I have been teaching for the last five years. My way of teaching is very natural and it is very focused on not pushing the voice. Those who have studied with me would say that I am focused and that I have great attention to detail. I am very good at preparing students for vocal juries and auditions.

*** Lesson Details ***
A typical lesson with me will focus on correct breathing technique as well as properly focusing the tone to achieve sound and volume without pushing the voice. In my lessons, if it hurts to sing, then you're doing it wrong and that is when we stop and fix the issue to gain better technique for performance longevity. Though I am classically trained, I have studied other forms of singing and am very open to whatever my student longs to sing. I am a firm believer that practicing at home is half the journey in achieving one's musical goals, therefore I will provide a homework assignment after every lesson for the student to continue to build on what they learned in session. While I am focused, I also want my students to have fun and that is why i strive for a comfortable, open environment that fosters open communication between teacher and student.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I travel with my keyboard to accommodate those students who don't have a piano.
