Mr. Malchik is simply an outstanding, excellent teacher. Not only is he knowledgeable in music performance and theory, he is also joyful, enthusiastic and patient with my child. The many things my child has learned include, but are not limited to, how to read treble and bass clef, proper sitting and body posture, left and right hand finger techniques for scales and arpeggios, and how to play chords. Along with this training, he also encourages my child to have creative freedom - to enjoy music by playing songs she has either composed herself or heard outside of lessons.
Kim
It is my great pleasure to recommend Mr. Ley M. to you as a music teacher to your child. I am writing as a parent of a son who has benefited from Mr. Ley M.’s phenomenal instructional ability for the Elementary School Music Program in Newark, California, as well as in private music lessons.
Mr. Ley M. is passionate about music. His love for the art is evident in his enthusiastic and energetic teaching techniques. As the music teacher for the Elementary School Music Program with the Newark Unified School District, Mr. Ley M. is exceedingly patient with all students, encourages them, and coaxes the very best effort from each and every child.
We were very fortunate that Mr. Ley M. was able to provide private tutoring for my son beyond the after school music program. My son has made tremendous progress in learning to play the clarinet. Mr. Ley M. has given my child a strong musical foundation-learning the correct embouchure and fingering techniques to play the clarinet, increasing proficiency in reading notes, timing, and hearing pitch.
Although Mr. Ley M. is one of the best music teacher in the area, his prices are extremely reasonable. In my opinion, he is worth every penny he charges and I certainly believe I have received excellent services for my money. I am tremendously grateful to Mr. Ley M. for everything he has taught my son and the joy of my son’s music playing has brought to our family.

"Glenn is an AMAZING TEACHER!!!

I took my daughter to Glenn for vocal coaching after reading all the great reviews. This man is AMAZING! One of the first things he expressed is that having fun is a big part of entertainment. From the very start he put her at ease letting her know there is no wrong or right as long as she enjoys what she is doing and sings songs that she is passionate about. This is a perfect approach for students...it takes the pressure off of them allowing them freedom to express their talent and evolve naturally. Glens thinks outside the box ...WE ABSOLUTELY LOVE HIM. My daughters voice has improved and she is not anxious when she sings in front of me anymore (-; If you are considering voice lessons ...TAKE LESSONS from GLENN AND YOU WILL BE HOOKED!"

How Great is Group Singing and Attending Concerts?

By Cecilia C. - San Jose Singing Teacher

When we mention the city San Jose and the Bay Area, people first think of high tech companies and competitive schools. However, there are also many hidden star music teachers, wonderful musical ensembles and performance venues. I am Cecilia, and I teach singing lessons in San Jose.

The first question I always ask my students is: "Do you sing or play music with any groups?" Music is always about team work; one rarely sees a one-person show with music - as composing the piece, renting or sharing venues, showcasing the piece and actually getting performers to perform the work takes a lot of time, energy and people. Most teenagers sing with their school choir, which I recommend all of my younger students do. Singing in choir guarantees students to improve their knowledge in music theory, musical expressions and sight reading skills. Not to mention, singing in choir also improves people's mental health, builds teamwork skills and allows both children and adults to make friends with those who share similar interests.

Choosing a group that suits you all depends on what you are looking to achieve with singing. Younger students should look for singing groups from their schools - whether a cappella groups or the school choir. Most of them are free and are always welcoming new members. As for adult students with some experience in singing, The San Jose Symphonic Choir and The Santa Clara Chorale are great options for those who are looking for regular rehearsals and performances with the best conductors/directors in the nation. Check out their websites here: http://sanjosesymphonicchoir.org/ http://www.scc.org/

For intermediate to advanced level students, I highly suggest auditioning to sing for the chorus ensemble and small roles for the opera companies around the area. Bay Shore Lyric Opera in Los Altos, West Bay Opera in Palo Alto and Verismo Opera in Berkeley provide great opportunities for classical music students and emerging singers. If anyone feels ready to step in the top professional field, there are also opportunities to try out for the chorus and small roles of Opera San Jose (http://www.operasj.org/).

Besides performing with different groups, I also suggest that my students go to as many concerts as possible while taking singing lessons in San Jose. I will admit: I learned most of my music knowledge through attending concerts. While studying and singing in Italy, I attended at least two concerts per week. Whether the concerts are good or bad, I learn something through seeing and listening. Seeing how others perform will give you ideas of how you would want to shape the music yourself and how you would like to perform such pieces. Opera San Jose has a student special for only $10 per show, and the groups which I have mentioned above also have multiple concerts per season.

One may also check out the schools around this area, especially universities such as Santa Clara University, Stanford University and San Jose State University. These schools have the best performance venues and facilities such as The Stanford Bing Hall, Santa Clara University Recital Hall, and Mission Santa Clara de Asis. You will find great quality concerts with the cheapest price.
