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"

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."

A very good teacher for a beginner!

As a adult student, I have a bit advantage at understanding the theory relatively easily. Maybe also have the willingness to practice on my own. But on the other side, the stiffness of fingers and the frustration of “I know I should do that but just couldn’t “ are common scenarios too. Maggie could adjust the pace and the materials based on my progress which helps a lot. She is also put equally emphasis on both technic and the understanding of music itself, which makes studying piano a vey enjoyable experience.
Emma Y.
The lesson went by really well. Maggie is a really good teacher, she is patient and efficient. My daughter really enjoyed her lesson.
Tiffany
Maggie came to teach my 5 year old daughter her very first lesson. I was impressed with how much she covered in a half hour! My daughter was really not interested but Maggie was patient and able to get her hold the violin, learn it's parts, play some notes and even read a line of music! Kudos to Maggie.

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.
Max
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.

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.
Romy R.
Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

Ms. Molly is wonderful!!! She started teaching my father classical voice lessons about a month ago. She uses Cantonese to communicate with my father because that is his first language. She is very patient and understanding and since my father doesn't drive anymore, she offered to buy music books that he needs for his lessons (we reimburse her for the cost, of course). I would highly recommend her!!!

Mr.Conran is a great voice teacher with very effective techniques to help sing better. My son, who sings really good, was not able to do a good job with his voice especially when he performs in the concerts. But, after we start the lessons with Mr.Conran, he is improving and getting better in his posture and singing!. I am blessed to find a teacher for my son to excel in his talent.

She will work with you on different exercises that will improve a lot your breathing technique and your tone. She demands hard work but your will also feel comfortable with her.
