Private Singing Teacher

I have been singing since I was a baby, according to my mother, my first music teacher. I thought it was mother's pride till I held a 10-month old baby, sang to her and she sang back to me. I have been teaching since the age of 14 and have over 40 years experience singing professionally. With my university chorus we traveled 2 months throughout the States and culminated with concerts at the Kennedy Ctr Washington D.C. & Lincoln Ctr, NY. I sing in 34 languages covering most genres from classical to musical theater, choral to folk-rock, Brasilian jazz & standards to alternative & world music. My approach is holistic, incorporating multidisciplinary subjects with lots of fun ways to learn, explore and express yourself. Tune in!

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 Paige

I'm so happy to meet you! My name is Paige, a California transplant from Texas by way of Tennessee. I've taught since 2007 and enjoy teaching singers of all ages and experience levels. I have a Bachelors in Music Education with a K-12 certification in Vocal Education, as well as a Masters in Pe

I've worked with students who came in struggling to find pitch and they've left with powerful voices. I've worked with professionals looking to open a new opportunity and they did. This isn't rocket science, there's no secret formula. But, I do work very hard to help you discover the unique and powerful qualities of your voice. This and proper technique are key.
You can include other instruments in these sessions.

"When I first came to Marjorie it was to see if I could start to work on adding some natural vibrato after years of straight-tone choral singing. I was feeling very discouraged and worried that maybe I just didn't have any natural vibrato at all.

When the lesson started, one of the first things Marjorie said to me was, "You're not singing straight-tone. I can hear your vibrato in there, but we need to set it free." In just a few more lessons we were already stripping away years of bad habits from choral blending, and I was thrilled to start to feel my vocal chords phonating easily and naturally.

Fast-forward several months and my confidence -- and love for singing -- continue to grow. I'm so amazed with Marjorie's patience and faith in me and just thrilled that she was able to break through 10 years of bad habits and set free my natural sound!"

Getting Inspired to Sing in Oakland

It’s a great time to be a musician in the Bay Area! The live music scene is hot and getting hotter as new clubs open and opportunities increase for local musicians to perfect their craft. Oakland is a friendly city when it comes to new artists. Many clubs offer nights that feature up-and-coming local musicians, and there are plenty of open mic nights around town for you to explore, get on stage and show your stuff.

If you’re taking singing lessons in Oakland, supplementing your lessons by attending live performances is a great way to stay inspired and grow as a performer. As a vocalist, your instrument is always in demand! Living in the Bay Area with its thriving music scene, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to catch a show, no matter where your musical interests lie. Here are a few local opportunities to check out a show, jump on stage at an open mic night, and network to make some new connections!

Live Music Venues From local musicians, to the top regional, national and international artists, they all make their way to the Bay Area to perform. If you love traditional and folk music, the Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse in Berkeley is a great place to go! It’s a non-profit community arts organization that offers a variety of regional and ethnic music that celebrates the culture of peoples throughout the world. In addition to a full schedule of performances, The Freight & Salvage offers workshops and weekly folk/bluegrass jam sessions. (http://www.thefreight.org/)

Another Berkeley pub that offers an eclectic musical lineup is The Starry Plough Pub. Since 1973, The Starry Plough has been serving up live music seven nights a week from some of the best artists from the Bay Area and beyond. If you’re interested in hearing traditional Celtic music, Sunday evening features a Celtic jam session where singers are invited to sit in and show their stuff! It’s the perfect place to go and jam after your singing lessons in Oakland! (http://www.thestarryplough.com/)

If your taste runs to edgier music, two Oakland clubs completely fit the bill! The Stork Club and The New Parish are two staples of the rock scene in Oakland. Both clubs feature live music seven nights a week. Performers include local regional and national touring acts and run the gamut from punk and hard rock, to alternative and indie pop.

Colleges and Universities The Bay Area is home to several colleges and universities that feature performing arts as a part of the curricula. Mills College offers a full program with an emphasis on performance with many programs open to the public, often free of charge. This is a great opportunity to meet and talk to other young aspiring singers. With programs offered running the gamut, from jazz performance to classical and chamber music, Mills showcases many talented young musical leaders of tomorrow! (http://www.mills.edu/academics/undergraduate/mus/)

The San Francisco Conservatory of Music is the oldest independent conservatory on the West Coast and is another fantastic place to check out the great classically trained vocalists in the Bay Area. With several performance venues on campus, you can see intimate performances of classical and chamber music, as well as operatic recitals year round. (http://www.bridgetomusic.com/san-francisco-conservatory-of-music-btm348.php)

As a vocalist, taking singing lessons in Oakland is just the beginning of your education! It’s important to listen to other singers both for inspiration to continue your studies, as well as to further your learning experience. The Bay Area is home to a wide range of musical talent; so be sure to get out there and experience some great live music!

How Do You Sing with Vibrato? Tips for Beginners

How do you sing with vibrato? Find out how to develop your technique in this guest post by Hayward, CA teacher Molly R...   One of the main things beginning singers tend to worry about is lack of vibrato. “How do I make it happen?” they ask... sometimes at the first lesson. I usually make it very clear right away that you cannot force vibrato! If you do, you can easily damage your voice or create a very ugly “wobble." Vibrato is something you have to LET happen.
