Kristen B. San Diego, CA

Subjects Taught

Broadway Singing, Classical Piano, Classical Voice, Ear Training, Musical Theater, Music Performance, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing, Songwriting, Vocal Training

About Me

My name is Kristen B. I am a private voice instructor in the San Diego area. I work from my home studio with students of all ages. I am a graduate of Westminster Choir College, which has a world-renowned music program. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Music, Voice Primary, Piano Secondary. I also have obtained my Masters in Music Education from Boston University. I have extensively studied vocal technique, music theory, and music teaching, and have been trained in Classical, Musical Theater, and Popular music styles.

I was previously a member of the Westminster Symphonic Choir (2008-2010). I have sung in many professional venues in New York including Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. In Philadelphia I have sung at the Kimmel Center. In California I have sung at Copley Symphony Hall.

I am a member of the San Diego Master Chorale, which performs frequently with the San Diego Symphony Orchestra. I also cantor at St. Therese of Carmel Catholic church and perform weekly with the choir.

I teach students not only how to sing, but also how to perform. This will benefit all students who are looking to audition for a musical, or are interested in performing in front of an audience.

I also teach students how to read music and understand basic music theory. This will benefit students who want to further their musical knowledge.

I believe that it is important for music students to learn how to be true musicians. For this reason I have created a student centered curriculum that includes a variety of learning objectives including: vocal and breathing technique, improvisation, listening and interpreting, student song selection, performance, music theory, and community musical involvement.

*** Lesson Details ***
All students who work with me have their own personalized lesson plans. Together we work towards achieving the student's individual goals. I teach my students the skills to become successful musicians. Students then use these skills in practice at home.

I believe that healthy singing is the most important thing for students to learn. I teach students proper breathing techniques along with healthy vocal practices. Each lesson will start with a warm up. These warm ups will help strengthen the voice so it does not become injured or strained.

I also believe that it is important for singers to know how to read sheet music and to know a bit about musical theory. For students who do not know how to read music, part of the lesson will be devoted to learning musical theory. This is important for home practice, and for furthering musical knowledge.

Stacey L. San Diego, CA

Subjects Taught

Audition Prep, Broadway Singing, Classical Voice, Ear Training, Musical Theater, Music Performance, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Singing, Vocal Training

About Me

During the past 14 years, Stacey has worked with students ranging from age 5 to 75 teaching classical, musical theater, Christian, and pop music. She accepts students of all ages, styles, and levels. Her students learn through vocal exercises, ear training, song, and performance techniques. Students also learn how to keep their voices healthy and are encouraged to participate in performing venues outside of lessons. The opportunity to compete in NATS competitions is an option for all students who fulfill the requirements.

After teaching in New York and Ohio, Stacey held a teaching position at American River College and operated her private voice studio in Sacramento, California for 6 years. She recently relocated to San Diego where she maintains her private voice studio. Stacey has a Master of Music in Vocal Performance/Pedagogy from Ohio University, and a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from SUNY Fredonia. Most recently, she completed the Summer Vocology Institute where she worked with several of the most knowledgeable researchers and therapists in the field of voice and completed additional Speech Pathology-related courses at the University of Pittsburgh. During graduate school, she taught as a graduate assistant and was hired after graduation as a Visiting Lecturer at Ohio University. Stacey also taught as the Affiliate Voice Instructor for the Athens Community School of Music and Voice Instructor at Studio 1 in Lancaster, Ohio. She is a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing and keeps her knowledge current by attending workshops and doing research.

A classically trained musician, Stacey performed locally in Sacramento as a soloist and sang first soprano with the Sacramento Master Singers. Although her love is art song, Stacey performed in both musical theater and opera productions during high school, undergraduate, and graduate school. Her roles include Despina from Mozart'€™s 'Cosi fan tutte' and Nancy in Britten'€™s 'Albert Herring'. She performed 3 degree recitals and was a 1998-99 Concerto Competition Winner at SUNY Fredonia.

*** Lesson Details ***
I find it very important for my students to be comfortable and to enjoy their lessons. Our first lesson will include getting to know your comfort level and all the details of your voice. We will sing a lot of vocal exercises, find out what you already know, and set basic goals. For a normal lesson, I always start with vocal exercises and progress into our song literature.

I am an energetic instructor and love what I do. Everything I teach is based on solid, healthy vocal technique. I apply this classical technique to all styles of singing from musical theater to pop and of course classical. Sometimes I will assign you a song, but usually I give you a choice between 2 or 3. I always encourage you to bring in your own song choices as options!

Students always ask how quickly they will progress. The answer is...it's completely individual. If you strive for a reasonable goal and practice efficiently generally you will progress nicely.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical and musical theater voice, and use the basic efficient healthy technique used in these styles to work with students who prefer to sing popular styles. I spend a lot of time on a solid foundation in breathing and learning to sing in a healthy way.

Subjects Taught

Music Theory, Opera Voice, Singing, Viola, Violin

About Me

Music is the biggest passion in my life. I love being able to share that gift with my students, and look forward to their progress as much as my own. I continue to grow and develop as a musician, and love connecting with people through music. My students all learn to love and appreciate music, theory and performing as I share my knowledge and expertise.

I have degrees in Violin, Viola and Vocal Performance, that I earned while on full scholarship for music. I started violin as a young child with the Suzuki Method and later added viola. I began singing professional gigs while still in high school, and was the youngest member ever with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra Chorus at 17. I also have extensive experience singing in non-classical groups and bands and am comfortable performing and teaching musical theater, pop, country, opera, operetta, and church music. With solid vocal technique my students are able to cross genres with ease, and sing whatever inspires them musically.

I currently sing with the San Diego Master Chorale and the San Diego Symphony. I was concertmaster in several symphony orchestras and have played as section leader for viola in numerous groups. I also play in and manage a string quartet and am also currently coaching small group string ensembles. My siblings and I have played in our family string quartet for over 20 years, and still perform together. Most recently I was chosen to record a new song Glow for Disneyland's California Adventure World of Color Winter Dreams.

I am comfortable teaching with various different methods, and cater lesson plans to the individual student. With over 14 years of teaching experience, I have taught students that vary in age from 3 to 75 years old, and am very comfortable with teaching children.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are fun. My philosophy is that students should have music in their lives and benefit from the lessons they take now for years to come. Learning to play a musical instrument will help students with math skills, study habits, and develop a skill that will last for a lifetime.

After 3 months students will understand the fundamentals of their string instrument or voice, know how to care for their instrument, warm up properly, be able to read and play/sing introductory passages. After 6 months the student will have learned basic music theory, how to read music, and have advanced through playing/singing multiple songs.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a violin and viola that I bring to assist in teaching lessons. I expect that the students provide an instrument and their books. A keyboard or piano is essential for voice students for vocalization. A student need not know how to play piano in order to take voice lessons.

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers marked as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25 lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.Vocal students are encouraged to pick songs from whatever genre sparks their interest. With violin and viola I use the suzuki method of training and follow the books and lessons, I use other books to supplement scales/technique.

Subjects Taught

Broadway Singing, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing

About Me

I grew up in a musical home with a piano teacher for a parent. Consequently, I started learning piano and singing at a young age, and then began taking voice lessons in high school. For the last 19 years I have been studying voice and loving every minute of it! I am a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing and Music Teacher's Association of California. I have a bachelor's degree in music education from Bob Jones University, and a master's degree in Vocal Performance from Azusa Pacific University. I also studied for 2 summers during college with a master teacher. Over the years I have performed and worked with both children's choirs and adult choirs and given private concerts. My enthusiasm for music has spilled over into a love for teaching. I have taught private voice lessons for the last 8 years to students ranging in age from 5 to 50+. Some have been beginner students, and others were seasoned singers who wanted some refreshers and guidance. My forte is classical music but I have also worked with Broadway, Sacred, and Pop. I enjoy teaching beginning to intermediate piano as well.

*** Lesson Details ***
For me, the most important key to success in music is consistency in lessons and in practice. I will work hard with my students to help them find a practice schedule that fits with their current activities and will help them reach their goals as a musician. Our lesson times will include theory and technique to help them gain skills and confidence and become well-rounded musicians. We can also prepare for any upcoming solos or auditions. I love music and I want my students to gain that same enthusiasm and excitement. I am a strong believer in positive reinforcement so my students will receive lots of praise and encouragement from me. Sometimes we might work hard to reach a specific goal, but we will have fun along the way. Depending on the course of study (piano or singing) I would expect the student to buy 1- 3 music books that we would work from.

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach voice fundamentals of singing for both beginning and advanced students. This consists of good breath flow, easy production of tone, and optimal resonance, for a rich and vibrant personal sound. These fundamental elements, properly balanced, give you the freedom to be expressive. They can be used in any style of singing. My particular teaching vision was created by me, utilizing techniques and practices, learned over many years of vocal success. Several elements make up this theory, creating the mind-body connection. It consists not only of proper vocal technique, but vocal performance skills, proper studio techniques, ear training, stage and video movement skills, among many other important methods vital to the success of an artist / performer. Your power and ability to sing with amazing technique, coupled with dynamics and emotion, will allow you to "simply sing" :)

*** Studio Equipment ***
Professional recording studio. Comfortable and vibey studio set up for multi-media projects. Microphones, computer, pro-tools system. Seating area for parents. One small, hypo-allergenic dog. (Shed-free) Smoke-free environment.

*** Specialties ***
I tailor my teaching beginning first, with the genre the student feels most comfortable learning. From there, I incorporate all musical genres, and the history and technique used to achieve that particular style.

About Me

During the past 5 years, I have taught students in classical voice, musical theater, piano, and music theory. I am happy to accept students of all ages, levels, and interests.I am in my final semester of pursuing a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance at San Diego State University. I am a member of the National Association of Teacher of Singing (NATS) and was the President of the SDSU chapter of the Student NATS, and am currently the Treasurer of the SDSU chapter of the American Choral Directors Association. I also direct the A Capella Choir at Flood Church in Kearney Mesa.A classically trained musician, I perform locally in San Diego as a soloist and a choral singer. Although my love is opera, I have performed three solo art song recitals in high school and college. I have performed in both musical theater and opera productions, with roles including Suor Genovieffa from Puccini’s Suor Angelica, and Spirit from Mozart’s The Magic Flute. Check out this video of me performing as the Soprano soloist for Ralph Vaughan William's Dona Nobis Pacem.

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach a holistic approach to singing, which means my students will learn the entire system of the voice through vocal exercises, ear training, diction, song, and performance techniques. I am a yoga enthusiast, and integrate yoga into lessons, connecting the body to breath. Yoga gives students a path to good posture and a tool to relax under the pressure of performance. As an active performer, I encourage and facilitate students performing outside of private lessons. The opportunity to compete in NATS competitions is an option for all students who fulfill the requirements.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The studio has a keyboard,
music books, and room to move. There is a couch available for parents to
observe lessons, or a convenient shopping center nearby to run errands during
the lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a keyboard to travel with, but would prefer a keyboard or piano in the student's home
for lessons and personal practice.

*** Specialties ***
I am a yoga enthusiast. I use yoga techniques to address posture and performance anxiety.
