About Me

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.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe in a generous, caring, but driven approach to teaching music. Providing a comfortable and supportive environment is critical to a steady and satisfying progression. Each student has unique strengths and weaknesses so as a teacher I understand the importance of tailoring a lesson to the specific needs of the student. Some people want to learn theory, some people want to learn technique. It's important to focus on the student's goals so they can get the most reward and satisfaction from it.

I also believe in a hands on approach to learning. It's important to expose the student to real world music skills such as stage performance, recording, and writing. Although scales, exercises, and etudes are important, it is just as important to retain and experience the JOY of music, which is why we are drawn to it in the first place .

*** Studio Equipment ***
Protools HD 8, 16 channel Mackie ONYX mixer, Several Mics and Amplifiers.

*** Travel Equipment ***
For voice I bring a portable piano or an acoustic guitar. For music recording it would need to be held in my personal studio.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in modern vocal technique, not classical or operatic. I can show the student how to safely achieve rock and pop vocals without damaging the voice.

I am also and experienced guitarist, bassist, producer, engineer, and composer and can teach all of these subjects to all levels.

Acting, Broadway Singing, Opera Voice, Singing

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 am classically trained, which means I use classical singing technique as my method of teaching. This technique can be used for almost any singing genre from musical theater to rock to jazz to blues to 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. My teaching is based on classical vocal technique, which includes:

Body Alignment
Breath and Support
Voice/Breath Coordination
Diction
Acting and Performance Techniques
Artistry and Musicality

These skills can help any singer become more aware of their voice and how their body works as an instrument. I allow my students to choose their singing style/genre and I help them incorporate classical technique into their music.

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 show off their singing skills!

*** 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.

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
