Classical technique from the Italian school, repertoire based on voice type, age, and ability level.

About Jessica

Hi! My name is Jessica and I would love to be your voice and/or piano teacher! I have been studying and performing classical music for 21 years. My relationship with music started at age 9 with the Contra Costa Children's Choir and I have maintained my classical vocal studies ever since. Along with my vocal studies, I studied classical piano privately with Keith Snell for 7 years, competing and achieving high marks in regional competitions. I went on to receive her Bachelor's degree in Music at Mannes College of Music in New York City and finished my education at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where I received my Masters, receiving training in vocal pedagogy and physiology, as well as vocal performance. I graduated from SFCM in 2009 and immediately began perusing ...

Patient and encouraging

I'm always impressed with how Jessica is patient with our 7 year old daughter and still is able to draw her out and motivate her when she is tired from school. Jessica always finds creative ways to be inspirational. Both my husband and I drive 15 miles to be able to have Jessica teach our little girl. We think she is worth it. She has been flexible and always tried her best to work within our schedule and has even driven out to our house to cover a lesson when things didn't work out in the schedule.

Wonderful teacher

Jessica is teaching piano and voice to my 10 year daughter, and I am so impressed with her skills as a teacher. She is patient, encouraging, and inspiring, and her love for both music and teaching is apparent. She is also extremely knowledgeable about music theory and uses a teaching method that's very effective and gets students actually playing music right away, without shortchanging their long term development as musicians. Jessica is a rare find, plus she comes to our house for lessons!

Jessica is great with kids and makes music so much fun!

I have two girls, ages 9 and 6. They both take piano with Jessica once a week. I can't express enough how great Jessica is with them and her ability to adjust to their ages and their ways of learning.
Jessica is so passionate about music which is demonstrated in her teaching style and of course all her education, training, and performances.
Jessica is so wonderful in her communication - showing such support throughout the lesson and has a great ability to explain the music so they understand.
My girls are very fortunate to have such a great mentor and teacher. Jessica is a true professional who is fully committed to music. We could not be happier!

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.

About Molly

I have been teaching for 12 years: kids, teens-even beginner vocalists in their sixties! Rockers, an "Idol" finalist, church musicians, lapsed opera singers, preschoolers. These are just a few of singers I have worked with, in person, in the classroom, and Online!

What you get in voice lessons with me: laughter as you learn! I have learned solid classical vocal technique from the very best, and I believe everyone deserves the same useful tools, no matter what it is you like to sing. I am patient and customize each and every lesson. Need more time on ear training? No problem. Are you feeling more confident, and want to focus more on song polishing? I'll help you with that,too! Confidence an issue? I am a pro with shy people. I'll get you out of your shell, relaxed, ...

I have Molly R. to thank for getting me out of my fear of singing. At first, I was so nervous that I couldn't even sing along to the radio with my friends! I met her through a class with Boldly Me, and then ended up taking lessons with her to prepare for my first big audition with StarStruck (I know right? I love performing but I get shy about singing). Though I didn't get in, she had given me that boost of confidence and the arsenal of skills/tricks that I needed to keep trying. I worked with her again to audition for Stage1's "Seussical"- and got in as the "lead Wickersham"!!
Molly has helped me with so much; she teaches you beyond what you could expect of yourself and guides you to your fullest potential.. all while keeping it fun and comfortable!! Molly doesn't just help you learn how to sing, she helps you learn to love to sing.

I brought my five-year-old son to Molly ten months ago to help prepare him for a choir class. My son wasn't overly enthused at first. With a lot of patience and understanding on Molly’s part, he’s come around to looking forward to their sessions together. He’s now six and can match pitch and learn multi-verse songs. He sings along to his favorite songs in the car although he complains, “Daddy, I don’t want to sing, I just can’t help myself.” That spontaneous urge to break out in song was just what I had hoped for my son. Thank you, Molly!

Tony D. Oakland, CA

See Classical Voice, above. I consider Classical singing to involve Opera, Choral, Oratorio, Chamber, and sometimes Musical Theatre. If you're only interested in learning to sing Opera, than we can focus exclusively on that.

About Tony

I have a Bachelor's of Music in Voice Performance from the University of Denver, which I earned in 2011. I started teaching during school, and have been teaching both privately and in high schools for the past 4 years. I have taught private voice and piano students from the ages of 9 to 60, and would be glad to teach outside of that range as well.

I currently live in Oakland, CA, working as a singer, pianist, and teacher. I'm happy to travel to your location; I have a car and a small keyboard I can bring to the lesson. I'm also able to travel further than 10 miles from my location, Take Lessons won't let you put a further distance.

In all of my teaching, I emphasize technique and improvisation. Learning to be a good musician is equal parts technical knowledge ...

I have been under the tutelage of Tony D. and have experienced remarkable breakthroughs in my voice. He is a very positive, upbeat, talented professional. Tony is a great vocalist, opera singer, songwriter, pianist and vocal teacher.
What is most impressive about Tony's teaching style is that he doesn't waste your time; he is a great listener and will quickly pin-point issues in one's vocal technique and provide "vocal remedies" that literally yield immediate results!
He covers a lot of ground in a 1 hour session, which I appreciate.
Tony is also very well-rounded musically, which is great because I enjoy many genres of music and so we cover the gamut such as opera, Italian arias, rock, soft ballads, R&B, etc. So, whatever song suits your fancy, Tony will be able to teach you how to successfully sing it.

I highly recommend that you sign up your next piano/voice, etc. lesson with Tony D.
You will not be disappointed!!
