Private Opera Voice Teacher

I approach my teaching by finding every singer's true and honest voice, and then exploring ways to make that voice as free and beautiful as possible. In the course of our lessons I will utilize techniques to explore breath control, resonance, range and freedom of not only the voice, but the body's ability to express while performing.

Every person that is capable of speech is capable of singing beautifully, and I fully embrace that mantra as a teacher. With that approach, I teach a wide variety of styles, ranging from Music Theater to classically informed Operatic Singing. Let's make some music!

Patrick is a colleague of mine and is so fantastic to work with. He is able to form a special bond with his students and they really trust him to bring their vocal abilities to the next level. Great performer, colleague, and communicator.
Deanna
Although my daughter did not work with Patrick long he was so encouraging and worked with my daughter and gave her tools to grow and work on. We hope to work with him again very soon as schedule permits. Thanks again for the confidence build for my daughter!
Andy
A brilliant voice and a wonderful understanding of how the voice mechanism works, Patrick really communicates with his students and provides clear but masterful instruction. I always feel like I understand a bit more every time I discuss music with him.

Private Opera Voice Teacher

I access singing and speaking through movement and resonance. We discover the way your body moves freely, opening up the breath and getting it to flow freely. Then we discover how to access your resonance with that freely flowing breath. Singing and speaking comes easily from there. Lessons with me are a combination of yoga class, anatomy lesson, and actually making sound. I find that if we see our voices as another part of the body that we're training, we see that singing is a movement technique, and looking at it that way actually gives us the freedom to make art with it.

About Gwendolyn

I'm an opera singer with seven years of stage experience in Germany and the US, including top houses like the Deutsche Oper Berlin, the Komische Oper Berlin, Konzerthaus Berlin, and, since moving to the Bay Area, I have worked with Opera San Jose and Lamplighter's Theater. I have a MA in singing fr

Gwendolyn is my first vocal coach. She is helping me to access the power and confidence in my speaking and singing voice. Using full body movement and vocal exercises she opened up a world of singing for me that I never knew before. She has helped me to discover my body as an instrument (crazy right?!). Gwendolyn has a tremendous amount of knowledge on the mechanics of the body, the way sound is made in our bodies and of course music! I am more powerful and confident in my voice than I have ever been. Gwendolyn is amazing!!
Monika
Working with Gwendolyn brought forth several break throughs even after just one session. She intuitively guided me into alignment, and with such efficacy & ease, my connection to body and breath continues to deepen now, months later. The work I've done on my own or with other teachers came to a (an aligned, you could say) clarity while working with this gifted teacher - definitely recommend!
Joanna
Gwendolyn is the best! I loved her yogalign class. She’s so warm and open and made me feel really comfortable just being myself and trying new things.

Private Opera Voice Teacher

The Opera Voice Track focuses on opera and classical art song repertoire. You'll study songs in Italian, German, and French, as well as English. Your repertoire will reflect the evolution of classical music, with pieces spanning opera history -- Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Modern.

You will learn vocal technique to help you reach your singing goals! Some areas we may focus on include vowel shape, space, breath support, forward placement, register blending, muscle relaxation, and vocal anatomy.

My style of breath support focuses on mastery of the intercostal muscles, the muscles that expand and contract the ribs. By exercising these muscles, you can gain more control of your exhalation and breathe more efficiently!

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.

Every student is a unique person who deserves a lesson customized to their individual needs. Each of my students prospers in an atmosphere of patience and encouragement. While the lessons are fun and enjoyable, the serious student will be supported in the development of skills leading to a rewarding career. And the more casual students will grow in an appreciation of music that will always enrich their lives.

I begin each voice lesson with a warm-up to prepare the student for their session. Next, we do a series of exercises specially designed to help each individual develop their skill in a way that best fits them. We then work on a piece of their choice for the remainder of the lesson, perfecting their technique and helping them become performance ready. I teach with patience and fun because I feel that this is the key to achieving goals and inspiring a good habit of practice.

He is very nice, patient to my 8 years son. The lesson are going very good.
Jasmine
Lance is my first voice teacher. I decided to take lessons in preparation for reading poetry and short stories. Lance encouraged me to keep singing because he believes that I have a great voice. After practicing his exercises, reading his simplified approach to music theory and singing a few songs, I heard a marked difference in my voice and feel compelled to continue this journey.

Above all, I've benefited from Lance's pleasant, encouraging approach and am very excited about where this new journey can take me.

I see improvement already in my vocal abilities with my first lesson. I enjoyed the lesson much. Now, I have got to do my homework to be my best.

"I wrote a review several months ago after my first lesson. I have been taking lessons once a week with Michelle and Robert for several months now and felt it was time to write another review. I listened to a recording of my last lesson and compared it to my first lesson. Wow, what a difference! I couldn't believe it was me on the recording! My voice has developed a powerful and refined quality it never had before. My singing has become effortless and my range has expanded greatly and continues to expand. I can't recommend them enough. I look forward to every lesson because not only are they amazing vocal coaches, they are the nicest people you will ever meet. They are enthusiastic, encouraging, fun, and quite hilarious. My lessons always end too soon and I always improve upon my technique in some way after each lesson."

"I highly recommend my colleague and friend Christina as a musician and teacher. Her style of teaching is quite effective because she is passionate, knowledgeable, talented, and quite fun and friendly. Because she has been so dedicated to honing her own craft (She practices and works incredibly hard), she can break down and clarify technique in a way that is informative, relatable, and inspiring."

8 Beautiful Opera Arias for Beginner Singers

It is always exciting when a vocal student is ready to start studying his or her first operatic aria! One of the best things about being a classical singer is knowing you have so many great years ahead of you. After all, you’re considered in your prime in your 40s. That being said, realize that the voice you have now and the repertoire you’ll first study will be very, very different from what you sing later on in your career. It’s absolutely crucial that you sing repertoire that is …
