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!

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.

Skilled, caring and fun teacher!

I am so happy to have started classes with Christine. In the couple months I've been working with her I feel a huge improvement in the quality of my singing and comfortabity with technique. Christine has tailored our lessons to meet my exact needs. She's an expert in classical voice and her depth of knowledge means I'm learning about musicality, composers, technique, and performance. She is a fantastic teacher, fun to be around, and has empowered my voice more than any other teacher I've worked with! I'd highly recommend Christine.

Great for a beginner

I came into these singing lessons with zero singing experience, and it's been really positive. Christine helped me to feel comfortable right away. She's been engaged with what I've wanted to learn, and put thought into customizing instruction for me.

We talk about listening for harmonies in different types of popular music, how to train my ear to hear, suggestions of different recordings to listen to, and even a bit of music theory. I have some historical music experience (violin), and she's found ways to connect the singing instruction to what I already know. I'm now (attempting) to learn a folk song she's suggested, and found myself surprised to be able to learn and observe quite a bit through the process-- and begin to pull it off-- I think. :)

I see several reviews here from trained singers, but wanted to chime in that Christine has been great for a very untrained student as well!
Bronya F.
Great Teacher

Christine is an incredibly generous person who deeply cares about her students' needs. She carved out time for me from her own performance rehearsals when I was under a lot of pressure to measure up for a performance that was just around the corner.

She is extremely encouraging and positive, and she knows the techniques to get your performance level higher or to expand your range.

I would definitely recommend her.

Online Opera Voice Teacher

Hello fellow Opera singers! My goal is to help you refine your own unique instrument and help you to express a story and art through the voice!

I grew up taking piano lessons and singing in my church and school choir. I always had a love for all classical music and soon enough fell in love with opera! I begin taking classical voice lessons at the age of 15 and soon realized that my heart and soul belonged to opera and had to continue my studies a lot more in depth.

I went to UCLA where I received my Bachelor of Arts with my emphasis in Opera Performance. Throughout the years spent at UCLA, I not only continued to sing with choral groups, but also performed in every opera. I sang one of the principles roles in Ravel's L'enfant et les sortilèges, and sang one of the principles roles in many opera scenes such as Dorabella from Così fan tutte, Mercedes in Carmen, Second Lady in The Magic Flute, Nerone in L'incorazione di Poppea.

Since I graduated college I have collaborated ...

My lessons are geared towards fostering a healthy, confident singer from beginner to advanced levels. Providing you with the necessary tools in order to adapt to any situation, whether on stage or in studio. Building your instrument to weather adversity comes from a grounded and functional technique that fits your individual voice. Most importantly, singing should be a joy and that comes with confidence.
Through my over 15 years of experience singing professionally I’ve performed in every venue imaginable. From lead roles in operas to performing at venues like the Forum to singing on Disney soundtracks. Passing on the technique which has allowed me a career with longevity and flexibility is important to me.
A singer’s unique voice is a huge asset. You shouldn't sound like anyone else, you should sound like you. That’s where a healthy foundation can give you the guidance to sound like the best version of you.

My daughter dreams of being a professional actor/singer, and Rachel is both the best teacher and role model we could hope for! Rachel helps her with her vocal technique, helps her choose songs that are age appropriate but that enable her to expand her repertoire, and I am absolutely amazed at how much she has learned about acting and character/script analysis. My daughter eagerly does her "Rachel homework" each week :) Rachel also gives her great advice about auditioning, college, and the industry in general. She is truly a wealth of knowledge and talent! We were fortunate to see Rachel perform as Christine Daae in a performance of Phantom of the Opera (my daughter's favorite musical and dream role), and we were absolutely floored by her performance! We are so grateful that our daughter has the opportunity to train with an incredibly talented, enthusiastic artist and teacher. Thank you, Rachel!
Julia
Literally couldn’t ask for a better instructor. Honestly, she has been so patient with me since I have anxiety and I’m pretty shy in front of others. She has been nothing but supportive and I really can’t thank her enough for anything.
Jeff
Rachel is a wonderful teacher! My daughter loves her lessons with Rachel! Rachel is very insightful and observant. She also has a wealth of knowledge on singing and musical theater. My daughter is very serious about having a career in musical theater someday and she really appreciates how compassionate and dedicated Rachel is to making her a better singer. After many talks with my daughter, I can tell you Rachel has a great sense of humor, great knowledge, wisdom, industry insight and she is very caring. You could not find a better teacher! My daughter plans to keep taking lessons from Rachel for a long time. Don't walk, RUN to get your lessons with her! She is that awesome!

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 …
