Elizabeth is excellent at detecting areas for improvement!

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.

Private Singing 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!

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.

If you’re serious about learning to play piano and willing to put in the work, I honestly cannot think of a better instructor than James. His teaching methodology is creative, fun, yet challenging catapulting students to higher proficiency levels than typically possible with more traditional teaching methods. My 11 year old learning from James is quickly surpassing other kids with many more years of lessons studying other dated, traditional approaches.

James has played for some well known professional acts during his career in multiple music genres (including a presidencial election ceremony)...point being he’s been on the big stage and has reached a level most only dream about. Yet he continues to follow his true passion which is helping others learn and reach their own individual musical aspirations.

In short, James is your guy...look no further.

James has a terrific approach to teaching that my seven year old daughter responded to with enthusiasm and excitement. She learned a lot more than I thought she could in just her first lesson. We’re looking forward to next week!

Coming from a large extended family in Hawaii, I was surrounded by luau music, kachi-kachi dancing, Japanese bon dances, handsome local guys singing and playing their guitars and my aunties strumming their ukes and singing old songs.

Carolyn did a great job of introducing our 8-year-old to signing. She was energetic, patient and fun and made sure to pick music our daughter liked and customized lessons to her interest and level.
Mia L.
My daughter has been asking me for ukulele classes for a while and we found Carolyn online, really liked her profile and we just had the first class yesterday. My daughter had a fun and informative class with a nice follow up practice to do on her own. Carolyn was great, \able to connect with my 7 yr old and made her feel comfortable. She even asked me if we were going to be able to meet her in person one day!
Thea
When our lessons started, I have low expectations of myself. I never realised I could have enjoyed it as much. Much of the enjoyment could be attributed to Teacher Carolyn's guidance, and tips. I appreciated that she was kind and positive all throughout.

I have been teaching voice for over 15 years, both in classroom and private lesson settings. I hold a Bachelor's degree in music with an emphasis in performing arts (such as musical theater) and a Master's in early childhood and elementary education, but I believe anyone can be taught to at least carry a tune-so all ages and skill levels are welcome. I fervently believe that a solid foundation in music theory and technique goes a long way, but I also know from experience that choosing to sing the types of music you love is essential to successful learning. I have been trained in classical voice, musical theater, and church music, but my passion is leading worship in the church and singing music of an acoustic folk or country style. As a professional musician I have done all of these styles (and more) many times over the course of my career. What that means is I have the experience to help you reach your goals, whatever they may be! Whether you have always dreamed of learning or are

He doesn’t limit you. He teaches you that you can sing whatever you love if you practice everyday and put the work in. I’ve seen a huge difference in my voice over the few months I’ve been regularly taking his classes."

"Great Teacher

I went to Eric because I wanted to improve my speaking voice to record Voice Over material. After a few lessons it turns out that I can actually sing!

Well, not really but it's not Eric's fault. I will continue to take class for as long as I can, because it has helped me with all aspects of using my voice. And I understand a lot more about singing and voice. Actually I am re listening and appreciating even more all the great music I have heard my whole life. I think any other teacher would have not awakened this level of enthusiasm in me. He is great."

In just my third lesson, she taught me proper vocal placement techniques I haven’t known before which instantly transformed the way I sounded & took the stress off my throat which I thought I needed to be a better singer.

"I started taking voice lessons from Jamie kind of on a whim- I had always wanted to learn to sing but I was nervous and kind of shy about it. Right away Jamie made me feel comfortable. He is very encouraging and gives criticism in a positive way. It is obvious that he really loves music and is knowledgeable about many different genres. I love that he focuses on theory and technique- as a beginner these are the lessons that I was looking for. After five lessons I already hear a big difference in my range and my vocal strength as well as my confidence, and I am sure that as I progress he will continue to challenge me. I highly recommend him."

What Are Some Singing Software Options, and Can They Help Me?

The human voice is the most expressive “instrument” in the orchestra of sound that is music. Nothing can express or invoke the emotions of the listener like a beautiful voice! Of course, developing your vocal ability takes time and practice. It’s important to understand and develop proper breathing technique, pitch recognition, and range. The traditional method of learning to sing is to study with a qualified vocal teacher. A good teacher understands their students' strengths and weakness …
