This is the focus of my vocal studio, and I began teaching in this style when I opened my voice studio in 2005. Curriculum will vary depending on your experience level with the subject and voice type. Technique is instructed from a variety of backgrounds, with basis in physiology of healthy voice production due to my combined background in classical vocal performance and voice therapy.
I want to dispel the myth that only a select few are "gifted" with beautiful voices. Singing is like a sport; it is a skill requiring refined muscular coordination, which anyone can improve with practice and focused instruction. My teaching experience encompasses students of all ages and abili
She's so good at explaining the most confusing things about singing technique (which for a beginner is a lot). She's very patient and it's heartwarming when she gets excited about the times I do something right. I trust Kristen with my voice and I like how she encourages me to do hard but fun repertoire. Would definitely recommend!
P.S. Her voice is absolutely beautiful. You know you have a good teacher when she demonstrates something and you think, "I want to sound like that."

Angelina Yuan-Fen Ho, a native of Hsinchu, Taiwan, began playing the flute at ten. In 2010, she received her B.A. in music from UC Berkeley, where she studied with Isabelle Chapuis, Julie McKenzie, and Maria Tamburrino. As an M.M. candidate in Flute Performance at the University of Maryland, she was a student of William Montgomery from 2010 to late 2012. Before she could complete the degree, significant health issues arose that prevented Yuan-Fen from continuing her studies and necessitated a hiatus from playing the flute. In 2015, Yuan-Fen reached sufficient recovery and decided to play the flute again. She had been studying with Emily Skala since late 2015. Since Fall 2018, Yuan-Fen has been pursuing her M.M. degree at the San Francisco Conservatory as a student of Timothy Day.

Specialty in beginning and intermediate piano students of all ages. With nearly 10 years of experience, I provide a specific curriculum for training in piano with an emphasis on proper technique to ensure quick, steady, and measurable improvement in my student’s piano playing ability. That said, each lesson is tailored to the needs of each student. Learning piano and music theory should be enjoyable; I teach it that way. We will also work on sight reading and performance prep!
I believe that music is the universal language and when learned properly and with care, it provides an important outlet for many students to more fully express themselves.
I have studied and performed piano and voice most of my life, and am currently studying. I have derived much enjoyment and gratification through those channels. My greatest joy, however, comes from teaching and being part of my students’ growth in their skill level and observing the expansion of their confidence through the ...

It is incredibly important for students to have a general understanding of music theory, regardless of their instrument. Music theory is the core of the music that we play and listen to, and it is a vital part of every student's music education. The purpose of music theory is to show students how music works, and for that reason, every music student should be exposed to it at some level.
Having started piano at the age of 7, I was taught music theory at a very beginning of my music education. I studied it throughout my childhood and into my collegiate years. I can teach this subject in detail and help the student develop a clear understanding of the music that they read and play.
My interest in music began at the age of seven when I began private instruction in classical piano, and by the age of ten, I began playing the flute. I received my Bachelor of Music with a degree in Music Education from the University of Redlands, where I studied flute with Sara Andon. There, I per

I am a professional tuba player in the United States Air Force Band of the Golden West. When teaching students, I teach the importance of fundamentals. This includes intonation, ear training, performance technique, and how to practice efficiently. I also believe that every student is different and brings with them various personalities, and inspires them to find their own voice, giving them confidence and developing a love for music.

Jerry is a very skilled pianist and phenomenal piano instructor! Don't let his reasonable rates fool you into thinking that the quality of his teaching is anything less than spectacular. He thoroughly enjoys teaching piano lessons and music theory in many genres to people of all ages, paces himself to assist in your level of understanding, and makes learning to play the piano fun.
My eight year old daughter got a keyboard for Christmas so I decided to get her piano lessons to accompany her new instrument. I began searching for a local piano teacher who was reasonably priced, yet, also experienced with teaching children, and I couldn't have found a better person to do so than Jerry S!
My child had been previously diagnosed with ADHD and ODD so she tends to be very distracted, rambunctious, inquisitive, and defiant at times, however, it's never seemed to phase Jerry at all. He was open minded and seemingly very understanding of her condition. He is very friendly, easy going individual who has always been extremely patient with my child, despite her occasional outbursts.
In conclusion, I honestly feel that we are truly fortunate (and blessed) to have found such an amazing piano instructor, for an affordable rate, who's patient and keeps the student engaged, while also making it a fun filled learning experience to play the piano!"
Very cool and has immense patience for my 6 year old son. The right guitar teacher for my son who has questions nonstop."
