Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.

Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

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.
Dhiraj
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!

Tracy is an expert and has taken me to places in singing that I was ‘scared’ of. I have seen improvements even after 4 lessons. Tracey is a caring and practical tutor. I highly recommend her!
Gemma
I had my first lesson with Tracey today and I can't wait to take more! I'm a person who likes knowing how stuff works, why we may do something a certain way, what I should be paying attention to etc etc, and I love that she is willing to break everything down and explain in a very relatable way. She's very patient, easy-going, and despite how uncomfortable it is for me to sing in front of others, she made me feel like she's truly there to go along the journey with me, to improve and discover my voice with no judgments. Tracey is the best!

Tracey is super nice. I was not with them in the sdudio when she was teaching my daughter . She said I could definitely stay there though. My daughter was very happy with her.

"I've gain so much with each lesson from Cosima

I have never taken one on one lessons but when I was blessed with the opportunity to join my church's worship group I knew that I wanted to seek professional help.
Take lessons lead me straight to Cosima. She knows what she's taking about and is very helpful when it comes to making sure I understand every area of singing. I am very shy about singing but with Cosima makes me feel comfortable and she gives me many reminders that its ok to mess up, at her studio we're allowed to make mistakes. Little by little I can see myself coming out of my shell and begin to gain the singing confidence I was missing.
I look forward to our lessons together. and will encourage any student out there that is looking for a professional but also a person who cares about your singing growth and ability, to take Cosima as your teacher. you wont regret it!!"

"I'm on my way because of Vanessa

When I started training with Vanessa I had not had any formal education on singing since middle school. I needed to re-learn my fundamentals of singing. Her warm and encouraging teaching style made me comfortable immediately. She quickly found out where I was lacking and taught me I can be in control if I learn how to Breath while singing. Sounds easy right? Well no Vanessa really had to break my bad singing techniques because I wasn't using breath control. Well now my breathing and my tone has developed all due to Vanessa giving me the tools to sing properly. I highly recommend her if you are a serious student wanting to achieve your own sound properly and save your vocal chords from burning out due to bad form."

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!
