Private Singing Teacher

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 Ley

I have great passion for music, have been involved in music since childhood. I love the teaching process and have been dreaming of teaching music since I was 10 years old.

Mr. Malchik is simply an outstanding, excellent teacher. Not only is he knowledgeable in music performance and theory, he is also joyful, enthusiastic and patient with my child. The many things my child has learned include, but are not limited to, how to read treble and bass clef, proper sitting and body posture, left and right hand finger techniques for scales and arpeggios, and how to play chords. Along with this training, he also encourages my child to have creative freedom - to enjoy music by playing songs she has either composed herself or heard outside of lessons.
Kim
It is my great pleasure to recommend Mr. Ley M. to you as a music teacher to your child. I am writing as a parent of a son who has benefited from Mr. Ley M.’s phenomenal instructional ability for the Elementary School Music Program in Newark, California, as well as in private music lessons.
Mr. Ley M. is passionate about music. His love for the art is evident in his enthusiastic and energetic teaching techniques. As the music teacher for the Elementary School Music Program with the Newark Unified School District, Mr. Ley M. is exceedingly patient with all students, encourages them, and coaxes the very best effort from each and every child.
We were very fortunate that Mr. Ley M. was able to provide private tutoring for my son beyond the after school music program. My son has made tremendous progress in learning to play the clarinet. Mr. Ley M. has given my child a strong musical foundation-learning the correct embouchure and fingering techniques to play the clarinet, increasing proficiency in reading notes, timing, and hearing pitch.
Although Mr. Ley M. is one of the best music teacher in the area, his prices are extremely reasonable. In my opinion, he is worth every penny he charges and I certainly believe I have received excellent services for my money. I am tremendously grateful to Mr. Ley M. for everything he has taught my son and the joy of my son’s music playing has brought to our family.

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 repertoire. Each lesson is crafted to my students goals and desires for personal growth and knowledge.

First Lesson FREE with a package of 4 or more.

In each lesson, I will identify immediate issues then put you on a weekly regimen to move you toward vocal balance.

I use Gary Catona’s Vocal Building technique to improve your muscular strength. After that, I will use a two-fold system of vowels (Catona) and consonant-vowel speaking combinations (Bauer) to balance your voice by training the articulators to work in tandem with your vowel placement enhancing your natural sound, support and create balanced breath pressure.

Specific to learning the Catona Method:
This is an intensive vocal work out learning the fundamentals of Gary Catona’s Vocal Building method. We will cover all mouth positions and how to execute each exercise properly. It usually takes two 1 hour lessons to get a grasp on the Basics.

*Please note I do not have to teach you the Catona method, but I highly recommend trying it.*

Each lesson is recorded (mp3) and emailed so you can listen and practice. ...

"I can't sing." That's something I hear from a lot of people when they find out that I'm a singer. My response: EVERYONE can sing. That's why I teach singing with three easy basic concepts: Breathe, Imagine, and Trust. Breath is the foundation of singing on which all other elements of healthy technique are based (vowel, enunciation, phrasing, etc.). Imagine is all about learning what's possible with your instrument, and Trust is what allows your body to make your Imagination a Reality. Whether you want to sing in your living room or in front of thousands of people, I'll work with you to make sure you have the technique and the confidence to do so.

"Erin is just wonderful--helpful, supportive, and fun!

I came to Erin after several years away from singing, and she got me right back up to speed quickly and completely--better than ever, in fact!

We've worked on pieces that I've always wanted to work on, but she has also exposed me to all kinds of music that I hadn't known, and each piece has been exciting, challenging, and rewarding to sing.

Erin has always been completely reliable and professional, and an expert communicator. The few times she's ever given me feedback or instructions that I didn't understand immediately, she was able to communicate the idea in another way, and she's always completely open to questions. She's really just completely comfortable to talk to. Even when I struggled in her lessons from time to time, I never once felt frustrated or discouraged, and always came out on top.

Working with Erin, my technique, artistry, and confidence have all soared, and each lesson has been a joy. Erin is as knowledgeable as she is talented, and simply a delightful human being.

I'd give her three thumbs up if I had an extra hand!"

"Arlys is great and very professional voice/singing teacher. I had a voice surgery and was having challenges singing without pain, my range was also limited. After taking lessons with Arlys, it has just been so much joy singing and Arlys has a very personalized way to teach! Now, I have no pain, I have wider range of singing, and my control over singing has expanded. I wouldn’t go back to sing the old way again! In addition, Arlys is very professional and I always feel like the 60 minutes of lesson is fully utilized unlike some other lessons I have taken. I would highly recommend Arlys if you want to have fun in the journey of expanding your gift of singing and unique voice that each of us have been given! I am so glad I invested in this."

Teach Yourself to Sing on Key With These 5 Tools

If you're looking to teach yourself to sing on key, it's important to remember that it has as much - if not more - to do with training your ear as it does with training your voice.  And since we can't hear ourselves sing accurately, we need recording equipment or another trusted pair of ears to check our results. With the advent of smartphones and tablets, tools that will help you teach yourself to sing on key are now readily available alongside more traditional methods. Here are five methods y …
