    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/)

    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.

    Whether you are a singer looking to finally take yourself seriously or ready to book shows, wanting to do gigs or write your own songs, I cannot wait to work with you. Bring me your material and let's work on it. We will work on your vocal technique and your performance. I am an artist development coach so be prepared to have absolute attention paid to YOU. I work with music artists in my studio and I am available for studio coaching sessions. I work with artists in the Bay Area, Los Angeles and virtually. You are going to love this work.

    About Kathryn
    Kathryn K - First, let me say, I am active in passing the torch to millennials and Arts Education. Thank you to Take Lessons for making this possible to so many young people in the United States and across the world who would, otherwise, have little or no access to superb teachers. I am happy to be offering acting, singing performance, audition prep, scene study, script analysis and speaking lessons for all levels of actors, singers and those who need help with presentation work through Take Lessons. I am here to help you delve into your creativity, work and passion in a supportive way. I am a member of the SagAftra and ActorsEquity and have been for many years.
    My students range from beginners to those working professionally on an ongoing basis in the Industry. I work with clients who are heads of businesses, lawyers and on air announc
    ers, as well as many other individuals. My students have booked various roles in shows in the Hulu hit Chance, HBO's, Thirteen Reasons Why, Looking, Woody Allen's, Blue Jasmine, Touching Home, Generations, productions including Theatreworks, Pride and Prejudice, Berkeley Repertory's, Hand to God, and there are many more in each of these categories and countless commercials. (Nationals and Regionals) and have landed agents. Many have joined SAGAFTRA and Actors Equity or their way to becoming part of our performers unions. I am also fortunate to work with screenwriters.
    My base technique is Method Acting. I am open to other techniques and studied at HB Studio in NYC.
    When you study acting / singing performance w/ me you'll also learn about the BUSINESS OF SHOW BUSINESS.
    We will work on technique, audition technique, monologues, scene work, as well study all aspects of acting and singing performance in order to prepare you for where you want to be as an artist.
    Actors and Singers
    Auditions!!
    They are definitely the most difficult and nerve wracking part of being an actor or singer, right? Booking work means your audition has to be as good as opening night.
    Auditioning is about preparation and preparation takes consistent support. Look, showbiz is not a business about being alone. Artists thrive when working together. We are a collaborative bunch and collaborating to make sure you're ready and organized for your auditions makes sense.
    Stop trying to muscle through this necessary step alone. No one who works consistently does that! They ask for help. ASK FOR HELP!!
    Solidify your acting choices so you don't have to worry about them the day before your audition. Know your prep so you can internally drop into it when the casting director says, "Whenever you're ready."
    Have your music material and performance choices prepared ahead of time.
    BE AHEAD OF SCHEDULE.
    Work with me when your agent sends you your sides so you show up READY. Know your lines. It's OK if your struggling with memorization.
    Let's figure out How YOU memorize.
    Let me coach you for online audition submissions.
    If we are working virtually I will coach while you are taping yourself to submit your online audition. It works!
    Let me collaborate with on script analysis in order for you to you understand your material before you audition.
    Take your work seriously so you bring your most intelligent and inspiring work to the audition rooms.
    You'll be bringing the agents, casting directors, directors, producers and writers the inspiration they crave regarding their beloved projects. Do that and you're gonna book.
    I know you can work and I can't wait to make it happen with you.

    Gil Gross, Host The Gil Gross Show –Radio, ABC "I have loved Kathryn's music from the day I first heard her sing, but even being a fan of her recordings did not prepare me for seeing her perform live. She is a great live performer holding her audience willing captives to each turn of a melody and the drama of every lyric. She more than sings. She inhabits a song and involves each member of the audience in its drama, joy or sorrow. There are performers for whom a performance is a night out.

    Kathryn is an amazing teacher! I've been working with her for nearly a year now. At first I was hesitant doing classes online, but I don't regret taking the leap. I've definitely improved my acting skills in the months we've been working together; she gives great feedback and really cares about her students, not ONLY in the way of their acting skills. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to get into acting. I started out knowing nothing and I can say 100% that what I know now is largely in part of Kathryn!

    I always try and surround myself with people who give me confidence and make me better. Kathryn does both of those. She doesn't view you as a dollar sign but as an artist. She's the coach that sends you "Happy Birthday" and "Get Well Soon" texts because she genuinely cares.

    I've been with her for over a year already and have no plans of stopping. Thank you so much, Kathryn. :)

    I accept students of all ages and lessons are geared toward the student's level of training and style desired.

    About Mandy
    I have been singing for as long as I can remember and started studying voice at age 15. I sang in my first band when I was in high school, then 2 others while in college. Professionally, I was a back-up vocalist and percussionist with the Sam Morrison Band from 2006-2012, where I traveled all over the country. This premiere Bob Seger tribute band is signed by Titan Tribute Media and has recorded 3 albums that can be found on iTunes.

    I left home to study music at Cal State, Long Beach. There, I was challenged with more difficult subjects, like opera and Lieder. My appetite continued to grow as I immersed myself in performances, competitions, and traveling the world with college choirs.

    I have worked in opera companies based in southern California, including Lyric Opera of Los Angeles, Long Beach Opera, and Celestial Opera. I hav
    e also been hired as a soloist at various local churches.

    I was a faculty member at Orange County School of the Arts, for almost a decade, where I taught Music Theory, Music History, and Musicianship.

    As a member of Belle Musique, a hand bell trio, I played and sung for weddings, funerals, and private parties.

    I got to wail as the lead singer of Pine Street Band singing classic covers from CCR to Blondie to Tom Petty.

    In addition, I sing and play in a band, Wheel House, where we create a unique blend of rock, blues, and funk.

    It is my belief that it is never too late to follow your passion, but you have to find what really makes you happy and fulfilled!

    *** Lesson Details ***
    I teach students according to their own goals and interests. However, I must include elements that are vital in the musical world whether the student is a hobbyist or leaning toward a professional career. My instrumentalists will learn all aspects of theory including rhythm, basic theory, and musicianship. My singers will learn about breath, anatomy, alignment, and performance. This is in addition to learning fundamental repertoire.

    I have very high expectations for my students and do my best to motivate and challenge them, bringing out the natural musician. I am goofy but demanding and always develop a strong and trusting relationship with each and every student.

    *** Studio Equipment ***
    In home music studio with upright piano, electric piano, recording equipment, drum set, amps, guitars, bass, and seating for parents.

    *** Specialties ***
    Specialize vocally in opera, rock, funk, musical theater.

    I teach the basics of pop vocal technique to beginning and intermediate singers, as well as have a studio in which I can record the student's vocals.

    About Peter
    Whether piano, voice, songwriting/composition, music theory or music production, I bring all that I have learned and developed as a musician to the lesson in the interest of the student’s growth.

    Whether we work in classical, jazz, or pop, We focus on what will directly fit your individual goals. We can cover the full spectrum of technique, theory, ear training, sight-reading, and performance. What emerges over time is tailor-made program suited to your needs and goals.

    A little bit about my background: I have studied with over 12 music professors, both in the classroom and individually for 6 years at Saddleback Community College in Orange County. I’ve studied a number of styles while composing for and performing in various small ensembles, including:  world music, classical, pop, jazz, and musical theatre. I continue teach, produ
    ce and compose music for myself and other artists as well.

    I look forward to getting to know you!

    I have always known I have had some kind of voice. I started doing lessons with Peter for not only vocals but also guitar. He has helped me explore the different ranges my voice can actually hit and how to add more emotion into a song. In one lesson just today, he made a song that i perfomed which sounded okay in the beginning of the lesson sound 10x better and to the very best of my ability by the end of the lesson. Every lesson is alot of help! He is great at understanding how to work with people whether it is vocally or trying to learn to play guitar - he uses great techniques for understanding and will work at the perfect pace appropriate for the student. He makes learning guitar and singing very fun. Highly reccomended!

    I am Peter's father, so obviously this review will be a little biased. And, I have never taken a lesson from Peter, as I am not a musician and do not play an instrument. BUT, I can say this: Peter is hard-working, conscientious, and devoted to his profession. He is passionate about music and about teaching, and genuinely cares about each student. AND, he knows how to make learning fun! (Evidently he inherited that trait from his mom, who teaches English and Spanish). So, hire Peter! He's the best!

    I found Peter to be very intelligent and very knowledgeable. Peter was great in not only classical styles of playing but also jazz which really kept me engaged! I especially liked the way he taught music theory alongside some of the standard learning points like scales and such. Overall I had a delightful experience with this teacher. If Peter ever moves back to my area I would love to take lessons with him again!

    Alex is an exceptional teacher. My 13 year-old wished for voice lessons for such a long time, and I'm so pleased Alix is working with her. She is helping my daughter improve her technique (breathing, posture, range, etc.), while keeping lessons positive and encouraging, and finding music that my daughter enjoys. When Alix demonstrates what she is describing- WOW, what a voice! My daughter looks forward to every lesson, and if it's possible, loves to sing even more since she has been learning with Alix.

    I teach vocal lessons for all ages and all experiences. I want to help people understand how their voice works, how to use it well and to ultimately enjoy singing. My lessons (can) include breathing exercises, warm-up exercises, sight-singing, ear training and then working on a specific song. Each lesson is crafted to my students goals and desires for personal growth and knowledge.

    About Astrid
    Teaching is my passion. Over the last few years I have worked with some amazing students of all ages. My youngest student was 2 years old and my oldest student is in her 70's and I absolutley love that! I have experience working with children with learning difficulties and students who get frustrated really easily. I love helping students fall in love with music, like I did growing up with my music teachers and professors. I am passionate about music and passionate about my students learning and excelling in their craft. I enjoy working with all ages and all types of music abilities. As a teacher I really push my students to understand music itself and spend time going over theory, which is super important. I would love to help you or your child grow and learn in their music abilities and hope to hear from you soon!
