Private Singing Teacher

This category of singing is listed under my profile for singers who are unsure about the genre of music they wish to pursue, or who may want to pursue more than one at the same time. My studio focuses on operatic and classical voice, with some reach into musical theater. I also offer limited voice coaching in other genres like screamo and metal with focus on healthy voice production and safety.

About Kristen

COVID has changed the singing game, and I like to believe that it opened the opportunity to sing to those who otherwise wouldn't try it. I hope more people find joy in these moments of isolation through creating music from their homes! I want to dispel the myth that only a select few are "gifted"

Kristen is great, she gives useful exercises to do at home and pushes you just hard enough. She really tailors the lessons for the student.
Emily
I am so thankful for Kristen! She is so knowledgable, patient, and a fantastic teacher. I highly recommend her for beginner singers.
Catheryn L.
I love Kristen!
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."

Private Singing Teacher

With a Master Of Music degree in Voice Performance from Boston University, I am passionate about helping each student discover his/her unique voice. A student of the esteemed operatic soprano, Phyllis Curtin, my pedagogy is founded on the principles of classical bel canto technique. With strong emphasis on maintenance of a coordinated singing posture and fully supported diaphragmatic breathing, my teaching allows most students to see improvements in ease and beauty of tone within two lessons.

I do believe that time spent outside of one's lessons applying the technique in private practice is THE MOST important building block to mastery of one's voice. I encourage all students to record their lessons for use in their private practice. Objectively listening to yourself and developing a discriminating ear for your sound is essential to successful development.

In addition to teaching, I am a busy performer in the San Francisco Bay Area, providing the singing voice for celebrated drag ...

Erik was a warm, engaging, intelligent, and FUN vocal instructor. My husband and I took lessons for our wedding performance and continued afterward as well because it was so fun! Erik has a bounty of knowledge, an incredibly precise ear, helpful tips, and a lot of patience! Highly recommend him for any style of vocal signing as he has a broad range of technical talent and is very precise in his feedback. Erik you rock!!
Mark
Erik is a fantastic voice teacher and is a wonderful person. I cannot recommend him highly enough. I have recently started voice lessons with Erik after a 10+ year break from singing opera and choral music, and I have learned so much from him already in the two moths we have been working together - posture, breathing techniques, analysis of the text and score, ....
Our lessons are well organized, very helpful, and a lot of fun. I look forward to my weekly lessons with Erik and hope to study with him for a long time.

I had the good fortune of participating in two master classes led by Erik Chalfant. Erik is very knowledgable about the mechanics of vocal production, but what’s more is that he inspires as he teaches. He is engaging and energetic, and also very effective. He connects with his students, regardless of their level of expertise or experience. I have recommended Erik to several fellow musicians, and would again without hesitation.

Maureen has been a wonderful clarinet teacher! Being an adult who is picking up the clarinet again, I like how Maureen provides a balance of theory, exercises, improvision, and various methods to help me in my playing.

Erick has been working with our nine year old in an online setting for a few months now. My child has gained good ground with his training and even has been accepted in an upcoming musical.

Private Singing Teacher

I’ve been teaching voice for 8 years and my students have gone on to perform leading roles in stage productions, chosen for select ensembles, gig with bands or as solo artists, and have pursued music at the collegiate level. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to have a basic foundation for singing like posture, breath support and vocal anatomy, and as time goes on you'll be able to build on these with a deeper dive into vocal exercises and skills to unleash your full vocal potential. I specialize in classical, musical theater and pop genres, and have the following tools available for your lessons: keyboard, music stand, Bluetooth speaker, iPad with digital sheet music library. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Wonderful first visit! Can’t wait to see what else she has to offer! Connected very well with my daughter and we are very excited for our next lesson.

For almost a year, Sarah has been my piano teacher. She is encouraging, patient, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about my improvement. She never rushes a lesson and always takes the time to fully answer any questions I have. I have recommended her to several of my friends and co-workers, and I will continue to do so. Having a teacher who is just as pleased with my accomplishments as I am is refreshing and appreciated. If you are looking for someone to encourage you and teach you, look no further than Sarah!

Rosita not only helped me to improve my voice, but helped me as a person. She worked with me on my performances, helped me with my nerves and she made me be more confident in myself."

After only a few lessons I noticed a significant change and how much easier it was for me to hit those high notes. Not to mention he is an awesome guy and totally fun to work with. I've have 4 different vocal teachers in the past 3 years and would hands down recommend Eric over anyone else!"
