Arrica R. Oakland, CA

I began singing at a very young age for anyone who would listen and began taking music and voice lessons shortly thereafter. I am a USC graduate and have also studied music privately for over 20 years as well as at the Vocal Power Academy of Los Angeles. My main musical styles that I perform and teach are Pop, Rock, Folk, and Americana/Country but I also have a background in Musical Theater. I specialize in creating a lesson plan that suits the needs and skill set of each individual student.

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. I began singing at a very young age for anyone who would listen (so my parents tell me) and began taking music lessons shortly thereafter. I am now a USC graduate and have also studied music privately for over 25 years as well as at the esteemed Vocal Power Institute. I've professionally released several albums and I am grateful to have had my music featured/licensed by Starbucks, NBC, The CW network, NikeWomen.com, and MTV. I've toured extensively playing to audiences across the country and have had the honor of sharing the stage with artists ranging ...

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

Classical, folk, musical theater, church music

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.

A Guru

Vir is beyond your typical vocal coach. He was a huge help on things like pitch accuracy and phrasing, but more than anything, his focus on getting me to tap into and harness my inner power has already paid huge dividends in my recordings and performances. Further, Vir is an amazing person to know and his home-studio in Berkeley is magnificent!

It was a great joy learning from Frank for the several weeks I had him as instructor. He has his own little studio at home, with his piano, so you can enjoy and be comfortable singing out loud without other disruptions. His method is very simple and effective. It's all about energy, posture, and jaw movement! I definitely saw a change in my singing after only two lessons of learning from Frank.

He is also friendly, smiling, and courteous! He'll start you with warm-ups and then end with songs/pieces to practically implement the movements you've learned during warm-ups. Try a lesson with Frank! You'll not regret it!

My daughter has been taking singing lessons with Frank for 2 years. She started lessons when she was only four and a half years old. She is now 9 years old and Frank is one of the best vocal teachers she has ever had. Frank is amazing with kids. He keeps my daughter focused and has fun with her at the same time. My daughter looks forward to her class every week. We've seen great improvement in her singing as well as her confidence. I have been extremely happy with Frank and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for vocal lessons--young and old.

Pleasantly Surprised

After my 6 year old daughter's prior teacher relocated out of town, we searched for a another teacher. It took about 2 months.

At our first lesson with Sophia, I was pleasantly surprised at how she was able to pull my daughter's voice out and make her really sing.

Sophia is very passsionate about her art and passes that vibe along to my daughter. Sophia has an extremely strong voice and is stern enough to actually accomplish learning and progress. My daughter loves Sophia and I cannot wait to hear what the future holds for her.

Great teacher!

Sophia is really patient and she knows what she is talking about when it comes to singing technique. She has taught me a lot about voice placement and the misconceptions that people have about voice control.

-Ages 10 and up

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 ...
