Private Singing Teacher

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.

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.

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!

Peter was great, very kind and supportive. I will definitely consider another lesson with him.

Nicholas has been teaching my daughter vocal lessons for about 11 months and he’s fantastic!

She’s improved so much in 10 months! He’s awesome and delivers results! My daughter enjoys her lessons with him and she’s just 9 years old and has developed so much due to his mentor ship. My daughter also has an aptitude for singing and tends to catch on to his instructions quickly.

Elizabeth is excellent at detecting areas for improvement!

Elizabeth is patient, kind, and does an excellent job coming up with analogies and exercises for her students. She always remembered what I liked to sing and what worked best for me and was unfailingly encouraging and positive. Not only is she great at what she does, but she always managed to bring a smile to my face. She is more than a great teacher and singer, but also a great person and mentor.

Jenna likes the lessons so much that she wants to go from a 30-minute Yo a 45-minute lesson!

I love what I do! Teaching philosophy: everyone is born with a voice and has the ability to learn to sing regardless of age. Students at all levels including adult beginners welcome. Vocal range, control & tone quality will improve learning correct technique and safeguarding the instrument through correct care/use. I work with Regional/All State, college and professional auditions. I work with commercial musicians in many styles to improve their vocals.

I love Roberta. She is so knowledgeable, professional and friendly...a wonderful combination to have in a teacher. She is patient and thorough. I would highly recommend her.

Roberta is everything you would want in a teacher. She is exceptionally talented herself and knows how to share her knowledge with others. She is especially very kind and nurturing in an environment which could be quite intimidating for a beginner like me. You can tell she truly enjoys teaching and gets excited to see her pupil learn. I have learned so much in a short time.

Sara is a great teacher, 5 stars plus many pluses. She can point out my problems quickly and let me practice efficiently. My accent got improved, and I recommend her to my friends who need the same help. Thank you Sara, you are my best friend too. Love you, sherry
Grace Y.
Take lessons recommended me Sara Ann Butler because she is a great teacher. I’ve enjoyed taking lessons with her, and I am happy she has high expectations and material that was useful. I wanted to improve my speaking voice, and she was able to point out the places I could make improvements and gave me methods to improve.
To disagree with a previous review, i’ve never heard her use any anti-racist or political views. She doesn’t expect me to behave like her, and when she teaches she uses “I” and “I” is the student.
I am happy that I took vocal training from her.
Brandi
At this age , she is very hot headed. Her ego is longer than a mile. She is racist, doesnt like African-American and Asian students accent. She was making fun of ppls accents. In the begining i thought she may be trying to make a point but no. Jes thats all anger. The first, i m paying you money for this class. So just teach what you supposed to teach not your racist and politcal views. And after a few classes, I said i dont feel comfortable talking about the race religious views and the next thing she did was cancelled all my lessons without even letting me know. Now i have to restart from the begining from a new teacher and it takes a while for a new teacher to understand your accents problems. She wants her students behave like her age oh please, come on, if the student is young in her 20s or 30s you dont act or behave like her or him. They just started their lives but your almost have lived your life. She should not teach here.

"My (very shy) 12 year old just completed her first voice lesson with Monica and I could not be more impressed. Monica was perfect for her. She acted just the right amount of goofy to break the ice and make my daughter feel at ease. As I listened in the next room, I could already hear progress being made in daughter’s voice. Monica seemed to give excellent advice and has already assigned a homework assignment designed to focus on my daughter’s weaknesses. I am really looking forward to seeing exactly how far Monica will be able to take my daughter in the next few weeks."

Sing ANYTHING in the East Bay!

by Molly R. - Hayward Singing Teacher

Hayward, California is an absolutely wonderful place to be if you’re a singer of any age, style or level! As a voice teacher in Hayward (also known as the “Heart of the Bay"), I get to work every day with a wide variety of singers from all over the area. Do you sing or WANT to take singing lessons in Hayward? The options here are limitless!

If rock is your thing, then there are bands galore around. If you want to jam, there is live music seven nights a week at The Bistro in downtown Hayward. You can find even more opportunities nearby, especially in the Oakland area, which is only twenty minutes from Hayward. You may have heard of Green Day. They’re just one of the many bands that hail from Oakland! Since there are so many bands around, naturally, there are plenty of voice teachers in the area to connect with to help you achieve what you need for vocal stamina. That’s essential when you’ve got lots of gigs or auditions lined up!

How about opera? It’s everywhere here! Yes, even in the East Bay. You don’t have to drive to San Francisco to sing (or enjoy!) classical music. There are smaller companies such as the new Island City Opera in Alameda. Other Bay Area companies include West Bay Opera in Palo Alto, Fremont Opera, and West Edge Opera in Berkeley, to name a few. As you may know, opera singers require more frequent lessons than avocational singers, but the good news is that there are many reputable teachers in the area who specialize in classical singing. Many of these teachers are working singers themselves, performing with groups such as the San Francisco Opera Chorus. In fact, one of the top operatic training programs happens to be in San Francisco: the prestigious Merola Opera Program, in which only a handful of singers get selected to participate.

There is no better place to be a chorister than the Bay Area. Why? The numbers alone! This area has one of the highest number of choruses to get involved in. Hayward has barbershop groups such as Harmony Fusion (an all female group that competes nationally), community choruses like the Morrison Theatre Chorus, and award-winning high school choirs - such as Mount Eden High School, which has an impressive seven vocal ensembles and has toured and competed all throughout California! Moreau Catholic High School has another wonderful choral program, where individual students have been invited to perform in the All State Honors Choir.

Additionally, there is the Oakland Symphony Chorus, the Broadway Chorus in Pleasanton, and of course several more choruses in San Francisco (San Francisco City Chorus and San Francisco Choral Society are two that come to mind). Many of these choruses don’t require professional experience; just the desire to sing and make beautiful music with members of the community!

Lastly, musical theatre! Again, the Bay Area has endless opportunities for those who love Broadway. In Hayward, you can perform in musicals at the beautiful Douglas Morrison Theatre. Auditions are open to all. They also offer musical theatre singing classes and camps for young performers! The Lamplighters of San Francisco also offers workshops and camps in addition to a full season of shows. Their rehearsal space is easily accessible via BART of you come from Hayward. Additionally, Woodminster in Oakland offers three big musicals outdoors in the summer months and holds open auditions every spring.

Other excellent companies include TheatreWorks and Broadway by the Bay. Kids will just love the huge number of opportunities here, too. Companies such as Berkeley Playhouse offer special camps and shows for the younger musical theatre performer.

No matter what genre of singing you like or how old you are, you will find plenty to do for your voice while taking singing lessons in Hayward! You can easily to get to any of these opportunities or seize one right in your own backyard. The area is also known for its incredible diversity and creative minds. Now, go forth, and find one of the many welcoming voice teachers in the area to help YOU find your voice so you can start enjoying this wonderful singing scene!
