About Annemarie
I am an excellent and very experienced musician and vocal/piano coach. I focus on technical skills, creative expression, theory, a beautiful sound, body mechanics and enhancing the joy and appreciation of Music. I have a Master of Arts degree in Music and Education from Sonoma State University, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music. I studied Classical, Jazz, Pop, Musical Theatre, Sacred and Folk Music. I vary my lessons to gear to the students interests, goals and learning styles. I am very happy to be engaged in teaching, and to pass along my passion for Music.

*** Lesson Details ***
In my lessons, I review the student's objectives and build my lesson plans around these goals. I make learning fun. I emphasize dedication and committment to the lessons and practicing. I teach the fundamentals of Music with a practical and easy-to- lear
n approach. I teach technique, expression, creativity, varied musical repertoire that is based on the student's interests. I coach a style of singing called bel canto. This style stresses ease, purity, evenness of tone production and an agile and precise vocal technique. This can be applied to any genre of Music. In my piano lessons, I teach Suzuki, Faber and Keith Snell methods. These methods focus on dexterity, proper fingering, positioning and fluidity. I also emphasize making beautiful sounds with proper body mechanics. I start the lessons with vocal and piano warm-up exercises such as scales and drills. I make these methods fun and easy to learn. After 3-6 months you will be able to read music, sing the songs you would like to learn, and perform in a recital or personal venue.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The above stated materials according to instructors recommendations.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The student is expected to provide a piano and/or keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
Bastien, Faber and Faber, Suzuki, Snell, Solfeggio and Kodaly methods

About Kathleen
I am a classically-trained opera singer. I have a Bachelors and Masters in Vocal Performance and Vocal Pedagogy (teaching), and have sung professionally in the U.S. and Europe. I have sung Opera, Operetta, Musical Theater and Concerts, as well as choral and cantorial singing. I have been a finalist and winner of vocal competitions in both the United States and Europe.
I have been teaching voice since 1980, and have worked with students of all ages, from 14 to 75. I have also directed and designed for musical theater and opera. Because I love singing, I want to bring that to my students as well, whatever kind of music they want to sing. I love children, but I do not work with girls or boys younger than 14.

In addition to music, I also teach English (ESL), Accent Reduction, German, U.S. & World History. I have my CBEST C
redential And ESL Certification. I do private tutoring and teach classes.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that learning how to breath is the key to good singing. After 3 months of study, my students will have learned how to breathe, which improves both their singing and speaking voices. Good breathing is the key to good singing and a healthy voice. With a healthy, well-trained voice, my students can be valuable members of any vocal ensemble, and enjoy their singing, For solo singing, good breathing is most important, whether singing opera, musical theater or pop music, because it gives a beautiful, full quality to the voice.
I always begin a lesson with warm-up exercises, to check breathing and vocal placement. Once the (vocal) engine is warmed-up, then we begin to sing. I try to get to know my students, so that, together, we can choose music that will enable them to reach their goals and is both fun and challenging for them to sing.

In addition to music, I also teach English (ESL), Accent Reduction, German, U.S. & World History. I have my CBEST Credential And ESL Certification. I do private tutoring and teach classes.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Separate studio with Piano
I have a MacBook Pro laptop computer + stereo speakers, to provide recorded accompaniment, when necessary.

*** Travel Equipment ***
If a student wishes to have on-site lessons, I require that a piano or keyboard be available for the lessons.
I usually travel with my MacBook Pro laptop computer & stereo speakers, to provide recorded accompaniment, when necessary.

*** Specialties ***
I am a trained opera/oratorio singer, but I teach Broadway, Pop, choral and classical singers.

I have had many international students who didn't speak English well. Music is an international language that helps me communicate with all of my students!

Excellent Voice Teacher

Mrs. B is a wonderful and dedicated teacher who focuses diligently during class sessions. She thoroughly explains terms and technique and is friendly and sociable. Her extensive knowledge of languages comes extremely useful in Italian arias and other folk songs as to explain the meanings of words and to convey motion. Her classes are enjoyable and fun, while still being comprehensively academic.

About Liesl
Currently, I offer private voice lessons for everything from sacred music for chapel services through my church and at my home, I teach everything from rock and roll style songs to classical singers with a passion for opera. I find this diversity of work to be a stimulating and exciting exploration of not only the students’ musical skills, but to expand my own “bag-of-tricks” as a music educator.

Music is a gateway to the soul, and part of what builds into their own self-identity. I currently serve as the music director for the adult choir and children’s programs at Coastside Lutheran Church in Half Moon Bay. Conducting the adult group has contributed to my own spiritual and musical growth.

My music degrees, which I earned through Westminster Choir College and San Francisco State University, have allowed me the opportunity to grow a
s a vocal soloist and professional performer. I have been a featured artist at many concerts and events around Northern California, and have performed with many of the area’s opera companies, such as Pocket Opera and Island City Opera.

I am a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) and the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA).

As a trained teacher coach for twenty years, I observe and provide feedback for educators. Excellent teaching techniques apply to all content areas, including music. Liesl teaches with positive energy. She models all of the vocal exercises before expecting the student to carry them out. When providing corrective feedback, Liesl acknowledges the correctness of the singers approximation, and follows up with a next step. She teaches students to use the correct body alignment and breathing techniques to sing correctly as well preserve the vocal cords. She is fun and dedicated to her craft.

About Marwan
I started playing piano when I was 3, and began writing music at the age of 6. I've taught music and piano for over 12 years, and tutoring other subjects for over 5 years.

Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, I graduated from Cornell University in Electrical & Computer Engineering, with a minor in Music.

As a student, I was President of the Cornell Piano Society for 4 years. I spent much time teaching piano and music theory to fellow Cornell students, faculty, and staff. I've also organized many concerts, recitals, and events during my tenure.

After college, I went on to work for Intel & Apple as an engineer, while continuing to teach and tutor on the side. Later on, I founded my own startup company centered around Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Data Science, and unmet needs in the B2C market.

I typically travel
to each student's home for lessons. I travel all around the Bay Area: as far north as Richmond, as far south as Los Gatos, as far East as Livermore (and every place in between, including the Peninsula).

About Melissa
I have been teaching since 2006 on a variety of topics. I graduated with an BA from the University of Wisconsin. My degree is in History with and emphasis on East Asian history.

I've taught all age groups from age 2 up to retirees. My teaching experience includes one-on-one and group classes in a variety of settings. I've taught corporate classes, private lessons, small groups, and traditional classroom lessons.

We have a student-centric philosophy of learning. Lessons are generally relaxed and designed to work towards accomplishing student determined goals. While all students will study similar fundamentals regarding technique, theory, and performance, every lesson is as different as every person. Special focus on topics like music theory, self-accompaniment, composition, song writing, and home recording are available as well.


What are your personal goals? We'll tell you what you need to do to get there, and help you take the steps to achieve your aspirations.

Lessons with small children are more focused on just having fun while developing a good musical foundation, but we prefer for them to have as much personal ownership of their lesson as possible.

About Erik
I am currently an undergraduate student in engineering and music at Stanford University

MUSIC:

I currently study with Stephen Harrison of the Ives Quartet and SF Contemporary Music Players. I have been principal cellist of the Stanford Symphony Orchestra and Philharmonia, as well as a member of the Stanford Collaborative Orchestra. I have also appeared in many other recitals and shows on campus.

Originally from Menlo Park, I studied with Sara Styles and Irene Sharp, and was a longtime member of the El Camino Youth Symphony. I also participated in music festivals including California Summer Music, Interlochen, and the Tanglewood Institute, where I was principal cellist of the orchestra. I won both the Palo Alto and Los Altos branches of the California VOCE competition and placed fourth in the senior instrumental solo category of
the United States Open Music Competition.

In high school, I occasionally tutored my peers. Later, my teacher (Prof. Harrison) started deferring prospective students to me. I have worked primarily with adult beginners and intermediate high school students, though I am willing to take on anyone who is self-motivated and ready to learn. I try to break the complexities of the instrument's technique into individual tasks. I then assign repertoire that exercises these tasks individually, allowing students to build up intuitive expertise without losing focus.

MATH:

So far in college, I have taken many of the introductory engineering courses (vector calculus/solid mechanics/etc.) and maintained a 4.0 GPA. In high school, I received several departmental awards, regularly won CA Math League contests, and attained maximum scores on seven AP exams as well as the level two SAT subject test and math portion of the SAT.

I also spent two years volunteering at an after-school program sponsored by the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Peninsula.
