I can show how to match musical theory into what a student wants to to play or learn around the same time. This allows him/her to simultaneously understand how theory applies to their learning process and expand the possibilities and understanding whether he/she is a singer or a instrumentalist, or both. Music theory may not be the most desirable subject to learn but by linking it to what they already know it opens many, many doors and this is where the epiphanies and fun begins.

Ready to uncover the expressive singing voice you know you have? I’ve been helping students discover joyful singing for 20 years. Lessons are tailor-made to the needs of the individual student with a focus on vocal health and proper production. You will learn how to warm-up your voice with exercises geared towards building the instrument, breath support, and tension release. We will work on repertoire with specific techniques for learning and developing a song. For students that are ready or interested, we will work on applications such as working with an accompanist or band, creating arrangements and presentation. Beginners to professionals are welcome. Let’s get started!

In my 20+ years of teaching, I have learned that people choose to sing for all kinds of reasons but the number one reason is that they JUST HAVE TO! I have had the pleasure and honor to accompany many singers, from beginner to professional

After a singing lesson with Cathy I feel more confident in my singing and self-expression as well as taller and more centered. Her lessons are infused with a deep understanding of the anatomy and mechanics of singing as well as with a gift for uncovering your personal expression through song. Meanwhile her classes are relaxed and unpretentious. Cathy creates a warm and caring atmosphere that allows the student to feel confident where ever they are at with their singing.
Aimee
My lessons with Cathy have been excellent. Not only is she patient, funny, and sincere, she is a natural teacher. Her training, professionalism, and love for music make for an incredibly high-quality experience. She really has a talent for meeting you where you are at with exercises and techniques. I couldn't recommend Cathy more highly for vocal training!
Gerson Eguiguren
Cathy is the best teacher I had! She really knows how to get to understand and develop your unique individual voice. Her method is built on vocal health. She understands a lot about different styles and that gives you versatility as a singer.
I am a profesional touring singer now, I had several teachers and I can asure you that Cathy is the one that gave me all the best tools for my voice. I get a lot of compliments about the placement of my voice and how it is very nice and healthy, my answer always is "Cathy Elliot made it"!
I not only recommend Cathy as your vocal teacher, I actually thing is a blessing to have her.

"Ben is an amazing guitar teacher who is patient and always willing to work with a busy schedule. As a senior in high school, many things pop up and we are always able to work around it. His lessons are based around what the students want to learn and he always finds a way to accomplish it. He has a great deal of knowledge in music theory and has helped me many times stay ahead in my music theory class in school and more importantly how to tie it in musically. As a performing musician as well, he has experience and other bits of wisdom about music and beyond that he can/will share and has which I feel is important as well."

"Great Teacher!

Andrew Brown is a great teacher! I didn't have any music experience when I signed up for my first class, but he was extremely patient and despite a lack of natural rhythm I learned a lot in every session. Most lessons would incorporate exercises, learning a new beat or technique, learning a song by reading music and learning a song by listening to it. I was never bored during one of his classes as the material was always challenging enough to keep my focus, but not too hard to make me feel frustrated.

I would recommend Andrew Brown to anyone who wants to learn the drums! He's a great teacher and a really nice person!"
