I access singing and speaking through movement and resonance. We discover the way your body moves freely, opening up the breath and getting it to flow freely. Then we discover how to access your resonance with that freely flowing breath. Singing and speaking comes easily from there. Lessons with me are a combination of yoga class, anatomy lesson, and actually making sound. I find that if we see our voices as another part of the body that we're training, we see that singing is a movement technique, and looking at it that way actually gives us the freedom to make art with it.

About Gwendolyn

I'm an opera singer with seven years of stage experience in Germany and the US, including top houses like the Deutsche Oper Berlin, the Komische Oper Berlin, Konzerthaus Berlin, and, since moving to the Bay Area, I have worked with Opera San Jose and Lamplighter's Theater. I have a MA in singing fr

Gwendolyn is my first vocal coach. She is helping me to access the power and confidence in my speaking and singing voice. Using full body movement and vocal exercises she opened up a world of singing for me that I never knew before. She has helped me to discover my body as an instrument (crazy right?!). Gwendolyn has a tremendous amount of knowledge on the mechanics of the body, the way sound is made in our bodies and of course music! I am more powerful and confident in my voice than I have ever been. Gwendolyn is amazing!!
Monika
Working with Gwendolyn brought forth several break throughs even after just one session. She intuitively guided me into alignment, and with such efficacy & ease, my connection to body and breath continues to deepen now, months later. The work I've done on my own or with other teachers came to a (an aligned, you could say) clarity while working with this gifted teacher - definitely recommend!

Gwendolyn is the best! I loved her yogalign class. She’s so warm and open and made me feel really comfortable just being myself and trying new things.

Peter has a great rapport with our daughter and is "meeting" her where she is in her interests. She loves Lord of the Rings--they've started on music from Lord of the Rings!

Great instructor. Friendly, easy to understand, talented and can teach piano, theory, composition, etc.
Susan
My 10 year old son loves playing little riffs on the piano but really didn't want lessons for fear it would be too much like school. Peter has been awesome about tailoring the lessons so that my son can choose the Music he likes and move forward from his place of interest. Peter is a skilled and gifted pianist, and my son is totally inspired to keep playing and put in the work to improve.

Lilan is an excellent piano instructor with her professional skills and years of playing experience. She provided me with practical guidance on my playing skills as well as the emotion in the performance with her on-stage performance experience. She is also a responsible instructor. She will play the chapter by herself to let me better understand the performance. Thanks to her professional instructions and patience, my playing skills have been improved a lot. I will recommend Lilan to everyone who would like to expect an improvement on their playing skills as well as receiving great instruction experience.
Vi
I cannot recommend Lilan highly enough as a piano teacher. She is calm, patient, and dedicated in making sure you learn both the basics of piano and intricacies of any piece you want to play. She is also an excellent pianist - check out her videos on this page! Thanks, Lilan!

Terrible experience. I bought a package of 20 lessons for my 9yo nephew. He looked forward to it ever day from Xmas to the first week of January. Sam canceled the first lesson only 2hours prior its beginning. Then canceled the second lesson 10 minutes before he was supposed to be there because he “forgot” he had a “recording session today”. During the only lesson my nephew had, Sam didn’t show any ability to tailor a lesson to a child. Instead he gave him a pick, which dismayed me, and taught him a rock song we never heard of.
When I contacted the company they were very nice about it but I had to challenge their vetting process of teachers.
Dara
It was an excellent lesson! I really learned a lot from it. I was able to learn one song and start on a second on my first lesson only! Definitely recommend Sam to anyone thinking about picking up the guitar!
Karen ..
Sam is awesome! He listened to my learning objectives and background, he instructs clearly (and kindly), and I’m super stoked for my next lesson.

Mr Lewis is fantastic. He truly loves teaching kids to love music. My grandson first had him as a 5th grade music teacher and now as a private instructor for his clarinet. He takes each student at their own pace, encouraging them along the way to stretch and challenge.

"gfire teaches people of all ages - piano, guitar, voice - and has a true desire to instill a love of music in her students. She tailors her sessions to fit students’ interests which is highly motivating and has practical explanations (and fun for children) for theoretical applications and gives great rational to keep you practicing. My two daughters have taken lessons for over 2.5 years (they are now 6 and 9). gfire’s Patience and energy has been wonderful - they WANT to keep taking lessons and I highly recommend her!

"Kathryn rocks! A wonderful teacher!

Kathryn is teaching my young daughter to sing and we feel very blessed to have found her. She has a really great teaching style that made both me and my daughter quickly feel at ease. She has an incredible background and her technical skills and knowledge are first rate. But she is also fun, spontaneous, and really knows how to interact with and inspire my child. I could go on and on about the world of music and excitement she has opened for us. But in a nutshell, if you have a chance to study with Kathryn you will be very glad you did! The home studio is lovely & wonderfully equipped - its just made for musicians! 5 Stars!!"
