Mr.Conran is a great voice teacher with very effective techniques to help sing better. My son, who sings really good, was not able to do a good job with his voice especially when he performs in the concerts. But, after we start the lessons with Mr.Conran, he is improving and getting better in his posture and singing!. I am blessed to find a teacher for my son to excel in his talent.

I frame all of my lessons in reference to what music really is: the performance of songs. Vocalists work on pitch, tone, endurance, and vocal agility and will train using personalized arrangements of their favorite songs and artists to guide them along the way.

About Peter

Over the past 10 years, I've worked as a professional touring musician (singer, guitarist, pianist) for the rock band, Inside Switch. I studied piano at the Dallas, Texas School of Music. I also attended the James Madison University music program. I have played piano for 20 years and guitar for 15.

What I Learned From Peter.

- THE METRONOME IS SO IMPORTANT
- The voice guides the guitar if you’re more of a singer
- Repetition is key
- Practice songs that aren’t in your style to ease your way into guitar
- The power resides in strumming rhythmically
- Focus is more difficult that it seems when combining singing and guitar
- Guitar is an art in itself and itself you shouldn’t master guitar, you should be it’s friend.
- Open mics and video content are the key to more success as they expose you to criticism (good or bad)
Again, the guitar is your companion.

For any aspiring musician or any musician that needs guidance and improvement on the guitar, Peter is a great teacher.
Dhiraj
Peter is very patient and great teaching my 9yr old son. We take father and son lessons together which has been amazing. Peter is naturally talented and plays many other instruments all in from his home studio. He is also extremely flexible and accommodating. Highly recommended!

Peter was great, very kind and supportive. I will definitely consider another lesson with him.

Singing has been my passion since the age of 4. The voice is very special - it empowers us to live the lives we desire, communicate with others, and express ourselves. It is my mission to help others discover and develop their voices, thereby freeing them to use it as they choose.

Beyond the functional voice, I teach performance skills, musicianship, music reading, foreign language diction, phonetics, and so much more! I have a Bachelors in Music Education, a Masters in Performance, and a performance resume ranging from jazz to opera.

I love working with singers of all ages and experience levels. I know how to engage with children and adults alike for a productive, enriching musical experience, so whether you are a sings-all-the-time 2nd grader, a recreational karaoke buff, a devoted choral singer, or an operatic baritone, you have a place in my studio.

About Paige

I'm so happy to meet you! My name is Paige, a California transplant from Texas by way of Tennessee. I've taught since 2007 and enjoy teaching singers of all ages and experience levels. I have a Bachelors in Music Education with a K-12 certification in Vocal Education, as well as a Masters in Pe

First, we will talk about your goals for singing, and any struggles you have been having. Then, we will break it down to a science, learn exercises that address your struggles, and finally learn to add your own emotion and voice to the song.

I am a professional singer/songwriter in Austin, TX. I am obsessed with singing and practice every chance I get, and I have had hundreds of singing lessons myself, from people like Ken Tamplin, Felicia Ricci, and Cheryl Murdock, just to name a few!

Krysti has been a great instructor for me, an older, inexperienced student. She and I share a technical background. I find her skill and willingness to 'debug' my problems week after week to be helpful, easy to understand, and on target.

I'm still at the newb stage with clarinet, an amazingly tricky instrument. But it's my favorite sound, and I'm stickin' with it as long as Krystina can stand me.
Daniel
Krysti is a fantastic, motivating vocal coach. She inspires and makes you feel comfortable at the same time. Very technically minded and understands the mechanics of shaping the mouth and throat to enlarge your voice. I had a vocational interruption but will return soon to continue.
Tom
I have been taking singing lessons from Krysti for 6 weeks. In that time I feel Krysti has taken my raw voice and turned it into a singing voice. She is thorough, flexible, easy to work with and the lessons go by so fast! I highly recommend her as a voice teacher.

I bring a passionate approach to help vocalists develop confidence in their singing!

I’m a conservatory trained musician, with years of professional experience. I enjoy the balance of my work as a singer/songwriter, performer, producer and vocal coach.

As your instructor, I will help you build a solid foundation in vocal technique through breathing and vocal exercises suited to your style and skill while tailoring to your personal goals. We will then apply the technique to songs.

For those interested in performance, I can help coach your performance skills to help you feel confident, about singing on stage!

For those interested in songwriting, my lesson plan can include learning foundations in songwriting to help you create your own original songs and melodies.

Lenna is a great cello teacher. My son has been learning cello with Lenna for about a year now. And he is more and more passionate about the instrument. Lenna is always patient, thoughtful and creative to teach kids to be more enthusiastic on music. I recommend Lenna to everyone who wants to learn cello.
Marianna
Someone I trust recommended Lenna to me for a cello teacher - I am an adult beginner and I really knew nothing at all about how to play or read music.
Lenna was the most patient, understanding and fun teacher I could have asked for. She understood what I needed and got me from barely able to hold the bow to playing Rigoletto in front of a small audience in 6 months! THAT is no small feat. She loves playing, she loves teaching and she understands the human condition. A very good combination indeed. I highly recommend you hire her as your cello teacher, or your child's cello teacher, or your next door neighbor's cello teacher.
Zack
Lenna is a terrific cello teacher! I feel lucky to have found her through this site. I was starting from zero with the cello and she was able to guide me through the Suzuki book to be able to play some songs -- even sight-reading. While I have a long way to go, I appreciate her focus and dedication to improving my playing skills. Highly recommended!

"Voice Lessons

I graduated college with a degree in Vocal Performance. After a few months without voice lessons, for letting my voice recover from my senior recital I decided to step back into it. Ben has an ability to clearly communicate proper singing technique, while also explaining how the body works- so that the science behind the technique is understood. I would definitely recommend this teacher to a friend, and I will continue to see him regularly for lessons."

I have struggled for years with other teachers and within 3 lessons she had me on pitch and I’ve been building from that ever since. Her methods and inventions work and you won’t find them any place else other than the master herself. Fawn is a true gift!"

She is encouraging, fun, and will help you to find where you still need to practice. She will help you to break it down and to get the concepts down. She is also flexible, if you happen to run into a problem like I did with illness. If you are willing to put in the practice, you will find your time with her enjoyable and extremely valuable.

I noticed remarkable improvements from the very first day. Any time I hit a wall, she knew exactly how to bypass them and keep me encouraged. Most importantly, she is exceptionally flexible and devoted to you as the student. Lessons feel catered to your own development and she is always willing to work with you on scheduling. As well, she is quite amiable and pleasant to work with. I distinctly recommend her to any student of any style."

Through teaching fundamentals and exploring correct breathing techniques, Rob taught me how to sing correctly. Through his years of performance, he taught me how to engage with my audience and express the music. And through his heart-centered approach, he taught me how to really enjoy performing. Rob is very gifted, patient, and effective. I have seen him work wonders with myself and other students. Not only will you be thrilled with the results, but you will get to know this amazing man."

Singing Lessons in Berkeley, CA

If you’re taking singing lessons in Berkeley, luck is on your side — there is a huge number of opportunities to experience performances, join others, or sing solo! Whether you already know what genre you want to specialize in or you still want to explore your options, there are many opportunities for aspiring singers in Berkeley.

Where to Listen Singers who are looking for inspiration to see where their skills could lead them one day should check out these groups based in Berkeley:

  1. Women’s Antique Vocal Ensemble Called WAVE for short, the Women’s Antique Vocal Ensemble sings medieval, Renaissance, and baroque music. All the women in the group are dedicated to providing authentic, high-quality performances at their concerts and outreach programs. (http://www.wavewomen.org/index.html)

  • La Peña Community Chorus Singing for peace, justice, and hope since 1978, La Peña Community Chorus was originally formed by exiles from Chile. Today, the group focuses on the struggles of Latin American people from numerous countries, including El Salvador, Mexico, Cuba, and Nicaragua. In addition to their public performances, they sing in elders’ residences, migrant labor camps, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, juvenile halls, and schools. (http://www.lapenachorus.org/whoweare/index.php)

  • Where to Sing 1. Jaguar Karaoke For a lighter approach to singing, practice what you learn during your singing lessons in Berkeley at Jaguar Karaoke. Reserve a room with friends and show off your pop, hip-hop, or R&B skills with a range of music, including new hits, classic oldies, and international tunes. (http://jaguarkaraoke.com/index_berkeley.php)

    1. Nick’s Lounge Open every night of the week, at Nick’s Lounge there is always a large karaoke crowd. It’s the ideal atmosphere for building your confidence to sing in front of strangers. (http://nickslounge.com/)

    Where to Do Both If you want regular practice, joining a singing group in Berkeley could be a great option. Before you decide to join, attend a concert to find exactly what you’re looking for.

    1. Berkeley Broadway Singers Fans of Broadway and classic tunes will love this group. The Berkeley Broadway Singers consists of 75 members, who put on free concerts every season, singing pieces from the 20s, 30s, and 40s — jazz songs, Latin music, blues, and other popular styles. As there are limited openings for this group, an audition is required to join. (http://www.berkeleybroadwaysingers.org/)

    2. Berkeley Community Chorus & Orchestra Berkeley Community Chorus perform classic music and pieces written by emerging composers in Berkeley with an orchestra and professional soloists. Attend a free concert or join them for their next performance — no audition is required. (http://bcco.org/)

    3. Sacred & Profane This chamber chorus performs a cappella music across a wide range of styles — medieval, contemporary, religious, secular, traditional, and folk. Auditions for Sacred & Profane are held every summer, but there is always the chance to attend a seasonal show at other times of the year. (http://www.sacredprofane.org/)

    4. Pacific Edge Voices Pacific Edge Voices is one of the most professional choral groups in the city, singing a cappella, jazz and pop. Only the best are able to pass an audition, but with singing lessons in Berkeley, one day you could be on stage with them. (http://pacificedgevoices.org/)

    If you want to make the most of your skills, you need to receive expert advice and training from a private teacher. Taking singing lessons in Berkeley will enable you to train your voice to the best of your abilities, help you pass auditions to join a professional group, and help you achieve your dream of getting up on stage.
