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 ...

Let's make some joyful noise together! Singing beautifully is one of the most freeing and gratifying experiences one can have. I grew up singing in church, my local high school music program and community choral organizations. So singing is a fundamental part of my personal history and experience. M

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.

I've taking voice lessons with Maisha Lani for 2 years now. My first lesson, I kept saying 'I'm not a singer. I don't think I can do this.'
Maisha flipped that mentality very quickly. She's a magician with the voice and really showed me how beautiful, healing, and fun it is to sing. Maisha has worked with me on my ear training, tons of vocal exercises, my breathing, and she's helped me learn a bunch of songs. I'm so grateful I've been able to connect with her. I've grown so much!

Maggie is a great teacher! I have only spent 3 sessions with her and I am making great progress. She's very patient and skilled. Her positivity encourages me and helps my advancement. I learn a lot from one lesson and I am excited to take more.
Flordeliza C.
Maggie is an awesome piano teacher! It has been 7 years since my last piano lesson and Maggie took over recently. I didn't have much confidence in myself, but I guess she saw potential in me. My former teacher was keen on using children's piano books for me because she thinks, despite being an adult, those teaching materials are the most appropriate for my level. But Maggie had me playing Hanon right away. It was intimidating, but definitely helped me build confidence in myself! I feel so empowered playing the piano now. :) She's also very flexible. My schedule is all over the place right now due to schoolwork, but she's able to accommodate me still. I highly recommend her!

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.

"Daniel is a natural teacher and inspires his students to share his love for music. He has a lot of experience and is patient with learners of all abilities. I have had 3 lessons with him so far and have thoroughly enjoyed my experience. I am new to singing but learned piano when I was younger so I am not entirely new to music. He has helped me expand my horizons and believe in what I can do with my voice. During class, we cover music theory as well as the actual singing part. Progress will go faster if you study the theory on your own (he provides you with all the materials you need to learn) and come prepared."

"Arlys is a truly gifted teacher and singer with a contagious passion for singing and music!!

I began taking weekly singing lessons with Arlys on November 23,2013. As a result of our lessons my voice has quickly transformed from struggling to stay in key and hitting notes to a strong and confident instrument to accompany my guitar playing. Arlys is a amazingly gifted teacher and singer!! She has a true passion for music and art which was transparent from the moment I met her. She is very friendly and approachable. With in our lessons she does a excellent job of blending the scientific aspects of singing with proper body mechanics and posture with the elements of emotion and artistic expression. In addition she tailors each lesson to my individual understanding and ability. It is truly a pleasure to learn from Arlys! Our lessons are equal parts, vocal exercises, singing and laughing! I would highly recommend Arlys to singers of all levels and abilities. Thank you so much Arlys I truly appreciate all the wonderful work you do!!"
