This will enable you to make progress through the curriculum as you will be a beginner for the first 3.3 years, an intermediate for the next 3.3 years, and then an advanced student for 3.3 years. I will give you assignments to do over the week, and the next week we will go over them, learn something new and get new assignments. It takes 10,000 hours of practice to become an expert!

Dr. Spranza is one of the best piano teachers in the Bay Area. My two daughters take weekly lessons with her. She encourages them and empowers them to do their best. She teaches them both theory and practicals. They have participated in an informal recital and are now registered to take part in the MTAC Certificate of Merit program.

As parents, we see a big improvement in our daughters' piano playing skills. They even practice on their own, without us telling them to. All thanks to Dr. Spranza.

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.

San Jose, CA

All styles. Classical singing suitable for all ages, musical theater/broadway suitable for teens and young adults, and opera suitable for 15 years or older. Popular music singing is also being offered for students who are interested.

About Cecilia
I earned my B.A. in Music with a minor in Italian Studies from Santa Clara University. I am currently getting my master's degree in education from Santa Clara University while working on a high school teaching credential. I have taught students from 5 year old to 70 year old and I studied classical singing with the most renown singers and teachers. I also had special training in music multiple times in Italy. I helped many people with pitch issues, tone quality, musicality, performance, and acting. My students were able to build their confidence; they turned from beginners to performers. I have performed with many great singers around the world and have experience singing in opera productions, choirs, solo recitals, to name a few. The knowledge my students get are the essence from not only all my musical experience, also all my teachers a
nd colleagues' essence.

I set my expectations high for all students. Students are expected to learn all the assigned music and practice throughout the week. Music is fun but it also takes a lot of work. However, students' progress will vary. As long you are eager to learn, passion about music, diligent with the work, you will far exceed even your own expectations.

Most of my students improve tremendously in a short period of time. I not only teach them singing, phrasing, and language, but I stress vocal techniques, emotions behind music, acting in character, and performing as a professional.

My students will learn outstanding vocal technique that they can apply to any vocal style they choose, as well as character development, build repertoire for performance and/or auditions, gain confidence and poise, and be in a comfortable atmosphere for learning and growing. I always maintain a supportive, welcoming environment for students coming from all walks of life, and I enjoy challenging my students as well as being challenged as an educator. Come and have fun as a performer and musician!

About Christine
Music has been my food, soul and expression since birth, and I share that same passion with each of my students every day. Not only do my students train in building exceptional vocal technique, but also character preparation, repertoire selection, posture development, resume and audition skills, and personalized career coaching based on their levels. I believe in training an all-around performer who does not limit their abilities to only one thing, but being versatile and constantly thinking outside of the box!

A little about my background: I studied at San Jose State University, graduating with honors in the Music Performance program with a focus in Operatic/Classical studies. To supplement, I also have my degree in Musical Theater & Dance from The American Musical and Dramatic Academy (Los Angeles and New York). I sing opera and mus
ical theater professionally, as well as dance and act. I love creativity, spending time with friends, family, and animals, and am a big advocator for education/the arts!

I have taken voice lessons from Christine for about 3 years. I am so lucky to have found her.

Christine knows how to lay the foundation and give me the tools I need to build my own singing voice. She has taught me to feel and understand the complexity of my singing anatomy, to associate different tones to physical feeling. She has given me the tool box I need to continuously improve my voice, to get where I want my voice to be.

She is very professional​ and ​very patient​. ​ She does not cut corners and will do everything possible to get you where you want to go. She ​thoroughly understands the voice and​ she really knows how to teach.

Christine is now my third vocal coach in the bay area. My first coach did an excellent job focusing on exercises, but wanted to shape my voice to the style he wanted. My second coach was a fantastic cheerleader to the point that it felt like puffery and I started doubting his praise. At our first lesson, Christine took the time to ask me what I was looking for and what instruction style I wanted and, I have to say, she has been nailing it!.

Her technical pointers are spot on, she finds the tips and tricks that work for me, and her praise always feels earned. And, to be fair, I often earn her criticism, too, but it is polite and she makes sure I understand why I drew it.

As one final note, I think there is an ocean of difference between understanding how to sing in theory and understanding how to sing because of personal experience. Theory is great, but it doesn't always translate to the real world. Having an instructor that knows what tends to work in the real world was an important quality for me. I recently got a chance to see Christine perform and it's pretty clear that she knows what works in the real world. So, in lessons, the advice she gives isn't just "the golden rule." It's what she would do and believe me, you want to do what she would do.

I teach a grounded, speech-based technique. I teach voice work as both a physical and spiritual practice, beginning with solid support and resonance, with goal of freeing the natural instrument. Each voice is entirely unique, it is a person’s creative fingerprint. I work with singers to identify their personal voice in the courageous work of learning to sing. I encourage singers to perform in order to share their personal artistic discoveries with an audience.

About Rebecca
I have been teaching voice privately and in the university environment for over 20 years. Currently, I am the only teacher specializing in classical voice at the University of San Francisco, where I also teach music theory, music history, musicianship, and conduct the classical choirs. I am also a the conductor of Sacred and Profane Chamber Chorus in Oakland, CA. I have taught all ages and styles, and specialize in classical art song repertoire, operatic arias, musical theater, and the American song-book.

I hold a DMA (Doctor of Musical Arts) from the University of Iowa in choral conducting (2002), an MA in conducting from UC Santa Cruz (1998), and a BA in voice with recital honors from UC Santa Cruz (1992).

Professional opera singer trained at some of the most prestigious opera houses in the country. I am eager to pass on my knowledge of good vocal technique, my love of singing, and of performing. Seeing my students get out and perform with confidence, poise, and the tools to succeed vocally is the best reward I could get from teaching. Let's get working toward whatever goal you may have from the lofty pursuits of auditioning for jobs to just being able to simply enjoy the sound of your own voice when you are singing at home with your family.

About D'Ana
I am a professional opera singer and have been trained and performed in some of the most prestigious opera houses in the country. I do love performing but once I found teaching I realized how much joy I got from helping my students achieve their goals no matter how grand or how small. My honest opinion is that anyone can sing and that all should be given the opportunity to try!

As a vocal student, we will discuss what your goals are for our lessons together and what you hope to achieve in the long run. Students can expect improvements every week as you build upon the techniques and exercises I give you. I teach students to improve their breathing and tone production using the classical vocal technique and from there we will work on style and phrasing and overall performance of your piece. One common goal is to create a repertoire of song
s that the student can call upon at any time to sing with ease.

As I am still a working singer and will travel every few months to perform in a different concert or show. All of which is an attribute to my students as the more I learn in a professional setting, the more I can pass along to those I teach. Don't hesitate to ask if you would like to see my professional bio to get a better grasp of where I have worked in the country and the world.

My passions are Disney music, Broadway both classic and new, Opera, and really anything that can get your heart racing when you sing it. So let us get started on our musical journey! Looking forward to meeting you and to helping you unlock the singer you always had inside you.
