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.

Tracy is an expert and has taken me to places in singing that I was ‘scared’ of. I have seen improvements even after 4 lessons. Tracey is a caring and practical tutor. I highly recommend her!
Gemma
I had my first lesson with Tracey today and I can't wait to take more! I'm a person who likes knowing how stuff works, why we may do something a certain way, what I should be paying attention to etc etc, and I love that she is willing to break everything down and explain in a very relatable way. She's very patient, easy-going, and despite how uncomfortable it is for me to sing in front of others, she made me feel like she's truly there to go along the journey with me, to improve and discover my voice with no judgments. Tracey is the best!

Tracey is super nice. I was not with them in the sdudio when she was teaching my daughter . She said I could definitely stay there though. My daughter was very happy with her.

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.

The lesson was very interesting. Peter was really nice & informative. Looking forward to more lessons with him.

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!

Children & Tweens: Singing lessons develop musical skills such as pitch matching, rhythm, and excellent vocal production through age appropriate songs and games. Lessons are personalized to interests while also introducing students to music around the world.
Teens & Adults: Would you like to be able to sing what you see on a page of printed music? Do you wish you could learn your harmony part without needing someone to plunk it out on the keyboard first? As a school music teacher I have helped many students learn to sing from notation. In the process you'll learn how to develop and protect your voice.
Advanced Vocalists: You are ready to explore the intricacies of your instrument. Seek a Voice Specialist who can guide you to optimum form.

"An Ya is an amazing musician. She doesn't only teach people like me how to sing. She's out there in the real world... playing her viola and singing in front of crowds throughout the region. In my experience with An Ya, she adapted my vocal lessons to work specifically on areas where I was struggling. She always seem to drill down to the real root of the vocal problem I was having and helped me improve. I wasn't able to stick with lessons as long as I had hoped, due to conflicts with my work schedule. However, I came away from my time with An Ya with better control over my diaphragm and a stronger "head" voice. Thanks to An Ya, I'm a better singer than I was before."

"Fantastic Teacher

I am not your typical student. I am 45, and male. Im an acomplished guitar player and play in a band. I never had any real training for singing, and had very little control over my voice or really knew how to control it.
Roz has helped me immensely. She is very knowledgeable in music and voice theory, and has very well thought out constructive criticism. She uses a lot of visualization techniques to help with body and breath control. She is patient and understanding and willing to talk through some theory issues, instead of just drilling lessons. Although most of her students are younger, she really thoughtfully catered her lesson to my needs, instead of just trying to apply the same approach to everyone. I would recommend her highly to anyone and will be sending my son for piano lessons!"

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.wavewo

...

  • 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.
