About Me

I am a tenor that recently earned his MA in music from San Jose State. I completed my BA in Music from Fresno State. I am currently earning my teaching credential in music and love to help students reach their singing potential. As an undergraduate student (and in high school) my voice was classified from everything from bass to tenor and this led me down some tricky roads. This experience has helped me understand that the voice is constantly changing and the only way to survive is to have a solid technique. The technique I teach is strongly rooted in classical singing, but with this foundation you will be able to know your voice well enough that you can sing whatever genre you like without damaging your voice.

As a performer I love to perform many different styles. My training is rooted in classical training and I have many operatic roles under my belt. I also love musical theatre and made my professional musical theatre debut last summer as Seaweed in Hairspray. I also love to sing R&B and pop in my free time.

*** Lesson Details ***
In my lessons I like to help you find your true voice. We will begin with warmups to get your whole body ready for the very physical act of singing. We will work on technical exercises to help strengthen the voice so that it can be used to sing any type of music you like to sing. To help you become a well rounded musician, we will work on reading music and interval training. Knowing how to read music will help you have a leg up when it comes to honor choirs and and school groups! My goal as a teacher is to always make you feel like you have accomplished something in the lesson. We will work on new concepts that might takes some time, but I will never let you leave a lesson on a "sour note." Working like this will allow us to stay motivated and keep progressing! I have learned over the years that I will teach you many new things, but you will teach me new things as well! I can't wait to meet you and learn new things about the voice together!

*** Studio Equipment ***
practice rooms or classrooms in music school seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide a keyboard. I will need the student to provide a chair for the keyboard. The student will need an area in the home where they feel they will not be distracted.

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers marked as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25 lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.I am a classically trained singer, but also sing musical theater, pop, and R&B.

About Me

Playing music is so much fun! I have enjoyed music my whole life and being able teach music makes me very happy. Here is what one parent says about my teaching style... "Sheri, Is a lot of fun to work with. Her positive attitude on life flows from her which then helps others to have the same feelings. She is very encouraging and thoughtful of others needs. Her talents in music are unmeasurable." May 31, 2011

Currently I am working on my Master's Degree in Music Education and I love to teach drums!

Come and learn to play drums with me! I will have you playing and performing in very little time. I have many years of experience teaching music and I am extremely patient with those who may need a little extra encouragement or need a creative approach to learning.

If you have a talent show, performance, contest, or just want to have fun playing the drums, come and learn with me.

I'™m looking forward to working with you soon!

*** Lesson Details ***
With extensive experience in classical and contemporary (pop, rock, funk, R&B) music, I put equal focus on technique and fostering a musician'™s personal style and passion for music. I understand that every student learns in a way that is unique to them, and I will do my best to discover each student's learning style. I like to combine technical work with fun time playing duets together, improvising, and exploring a wide variety of styles and genres of music. I will train you for recitals, competitions, a music career, or just for fun!

For beginners, within 3-6 months, we'll begin discovering how to read notes and rhythms and understand the language of music. We'll learn how to play some of your favorite songs and learn some that you might not know. We'll discover what you really want to learn and achieve while taking lessons, and we'll work toward those goals!

For the intermediate student, we will begin to discover how to get you more comfortable on your instrument, building a great foundation and understanding of music reading and basic music theory. We'll also learn performance techniques and how to have a great stage presence in front of a live audience! For all my students, it's a journey that is exciting, unique to each individual.

My studio is in a safe, family-friendly, smoke-free environment. We have no pets and are careful about allergies. Parents are always welcome, and encouraged to attend lessons, or just sit and relax in the waiting area.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My music studio has two drum kits, PA system, recording equipment, microphones, keyboards, and lots of other fun instruments!

A comfortable waiting area is also provided.

*** Specialties ***
I play drums in a band. I specialize in rock, R&B, funk and taught drum line at a local high school. I also play flute, Irish whistle, recorder and can teach music theory up through the college level. I have lots of experience with performance.

About Me

Hi My name is Wendy S. and I love teaching music lessons. I especially like working with kids and beginners, and giving them a great start on their musical journey. I have been teaching piano and voice for over 30 years and enjoy it more now then ever. I want my students to have a positive and happy experience with their lessons. I love motivating children and I 've got some great trick for keeping them practicing and growing as musicians. . I like to give my students music of all styles with an emphasis on the fundamentals. That way they will have the technique to move into whatever styles of music that they like. I have been teaching for over 30 years, and I also performed professionally for over 15 years, playing piano and singing throughout the S.F and Bay area. I am currently performing at Dominican Oaks retirement home in Santa Cruz where my mother resides. I also enjoy playing for private parties and love doing kids musical and Karaoke birthday parties.

I really enjoy working with special needs students. I will adapt my lessons plans to make them work for each specific student. It has to be a positive and fun experience. I feel that the joy of music helps these kids deal with some of the stresses they must deal with on a daily basis.

*** Lesson Details ***
The lesson consists of a warm-up, scales and chords, pieces in the books, and a few fun songs . While I am teaching I like to keep the mood light and happy, a little laughter and lots of positive encouragement. When students come back the next week, I always look for the positives and tell students how proud I am of how much they have already accomplished. Piano lessons should be a fun and positive experience. But don't worry I get results !

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a Yamaha upright and lots of keyboards

*** Travel Equipment ***
Keyboards, full P.A.and Karaoke equipment.

*** Specialties ***
I really enjoy helping kids get ready for vocal auditions and have had really good results with my vocal coaching.

I also enjoy playing private parties, Holiday parties, and Birthday parties. I do children's Birthday parties. For the 3-5 year old group,
I bring instruments and light-up keyboards and we play music games.

For the 6-12 year old group I bring my Karaoke set-up with microphones and we sing Taylor swift, and Disney favorites. It's very Fun !!
