Kindness and understanding are the foundations of a successful student-teacher relationship. I believe in building students up so they can see how innately gifted they truly are; there is no such thing as a person who “can't sing.” I teach students of all ages and with all kinds of musical backgrounds. My studio is a place for patient, supportive growth: you should expect to work hard and have fun at the same time. If you choose to take voice lessons with me, we will spend your first lesson exploring your skill level as a singer, determining your musical interests, and reviewing or learning the basics of vocal technique. My goal is to help you grow as a musician by giving you the tools you need to sing music from any genre with confidence. As we continue our work together, you will develop or refine excellent breath control, consistent, beautiful sound production throughout registers, and an understanding of what healthy vocal technique is and why it matters. We will also spend lesson time practicing ear-training, sight-reading and music theory as they apply to the songs we are working on together. In addition to regular voice lessons, I offer coaching for singers who have upcoming competitions, auditions or other performances. Vocalists who work with me as they prepare for these events often go on to land their preferred roles and win their competitions. Whether you need guidance in repertoire selection, diction, or help with a few tricky passages, I am available to assist you as you prepare for your singing event. *2022 Update*: In order to give students/performers the best chance of success, I require a minimum of three booked sessions over a period of at least three weeks before the audition or competition is set to take place. My open-communication policy as an educator enables me to answer questions and provide additional resources, including customized warm-ups, outside of regular lesson time. I also maintain flexible scheduling for all of my students: studying singing is a fun challenge, but lessons should never be a source of stress. I am always happy to work with you to accommodate your schedule. Background: I am a classically-trained lyric soprano with over seventeen years of vocal education. I studied with PhD and MA professors of voice at universities in Kansas and Washington State. I also have many years of experience as a performer at a variety of venues across the country: my background includes solo concert work, lead and supporting roles in opera and theater productions, and event performances and competitions. I taught voice and beginning piano lessons, often on a volunteer basis, to students part-time from 2006 to 2012. I now teach voice lessons and provide coaching full-time. Students can study with me online or in-person at my studio.

Learning or perfecting skills can often feel intimidating and challenging at times. In each personalized lesson, it is my goal that you feel encouraged and appreciated for the unique singer or learner you are. I will give you the tools you need to become a confident and composed performer and to reach your goals as a student. I will provide fun and interactive exercises that help you master the basics of breath, posture, tone, diction, and the foundations of musicianship. Students will learn how to prepare a song and how to present a song in dramatic and interpretive form. Students will learn how to prepare for auditions and competitions (choral, solo, theatre role, etc.), and how to overcome stage fright and other challenges that are unique to live performance. I use a variety of teaching tools such as physical movement, imagery, and visual aids. I specialize in classical singing, musical theatre, and the jazz/blues sound. My goal is for you to enjoy singing and to meet your goals, whether you want to just sing at home for your family or land a leading role in a musical!

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!
