I've been playing music all of my life, from rock bands in high school to studying orchestral music at Berklee College of Music. I love creating music and helping others create their own music as well. Whether it's playing live, writing songs or recording in the studio, I'll jump at any chance to help students share their music with others.
Acting, Singing, Broadway Singing, Opera Voice
Thank you for your interest in voice lessons! I am a singer who teaches and performs in and around San Francisco. I have a strong passion for teaching voice 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 am a classically trained singer, which means my teaching will involve classical techniques. The techniques and skills I teach can be used for various singing genres such as musical theater, pop, rock, opera, jazz, blues and gospel singing. I believe voice lessons are fun, and also beneficial for improving music skills, expanding the range, developing vocal stamina and quality, and increasing confidence.
I completed my Bachelors of Music at the University of Washington in Seattle, and my Masters of Arts in Vocal Performance at San Jose State University. I have been teaching voice for over 8 years throughout the Seattle, San Jose, and San Francisco areas. My students have ranged from ages 5 to 85, male and female, beginner to advanced.
Singing, Music Performance
I was born in New York, then moved to overseas with my family. I have started to sing in 1983 with various choirs, in Istanbul, Turkey. I have performed with the prestigious TRT (Turkish Radio Television) Istanbul Youth Polyphonic Choir for 4 years. With the choir I had appeared on regular TV concerts, live concerts and radio recordings .I have a B.A. degree in "Advertising & Marketing Research" (emphasis on Creative Writing) from Istanbul University. I also have a teaching certificate from the University of Cambridge, CELTA (Certificate of English Language Teaching to Adults). I have a B.M. (Bachelors of Music) "Vocal Performance" (emphasis on Opera). I graduated from SFSU in 2005. I have performed with various ensembles, groups and choirs at SFSU since 1998. While I was at SFSU my academic success was recognized by Golden Key International Honor Society and I became a member in 2000. I taught Turkish Singing class at Mendocino Middle Eastern Music and Dance Camp 2001-2005. I recently finished a pedagogy workshop at The Boston Conservatory; Vocal Pedagogy Professional Workshop, July 2011.
I am an active, professional solo vocalist and a voice teacher since 1999. As a voice teacher I worked with different age groups, from kids to adults. I have founded "Nazar" (a Middle Eastern Music Group) in 2000 and performed in San Francisco and Bay Area. I have performed in many different styles at different venues in San Francisco and Bay Area; such as music festivals (4th Annual Lark in the Morning/ SF, 4th of July 2010 Richmond/East Bay), De Young Museum SF/CA (January 2010 with Aswat & February 2010 with Algerian musicians) weddings, private parties, Middle Eastern Music and Dance Parties in: San Mateo, San Jose, Santa Rose, San Francisco, Palo Alto, Berkeley, Pittsburgh, Larkspur/ Marin County, regular restaurant performances (Cafe Istanbul /SF, Bosphorus/ Berkeley), appearances on radio shows (KKUP 2002, 2003), KPFA (2010) and many more. I have given concerts with different groups for different occasions such as; benefit concerts ,remembrance concerts (Sayyid Darwish Night 2002 San Mateo), at churches, at nursing homes and other concerts ; Open Secret Bookstore, Noe Valley Ministry, Mission Cultural Center, La Pena Cultural Center, San Francisco State University. I am a very versatile singer, I have sang in many different styles and languages (in total 33 languages) such as; Western Classical (Arias, Art Songs, Choral) (English, Italian, Spanish, German, French, Latin, Russian, Finnish, Czech, Hungarian, Hebraic and Far Eastern Languages), Middle Eastern Classical (Turkish), Folk (Turkish, Armenian, Iranian, Romanian, Arabic, Tamazight, Hawaiian), Devotional Songs (Turkish), Pop, and Jazz. I have been told that I have a natural talent and stage charisma. I love to entertain. Currently I am the vocal trainer of Aswat (Bay Area Arabic Choir).
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.
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!
