Excellent Teacher

My daughter, who is 12, learned so much from Gaw. She improved greatly under Gaw's instruction. I highly recommend Gaw for anyone looking for a teacher for their kids, or themselves! She was honest, but kind, and really encouraged my daughter to reach her potential. You will no be disappointed with her.
JoAnn R. Carmichael, CA

I am a serious singing teacher and coach (as well as a performer). If you attend your lessons and practice regularly, I will help you learn to sing very well. I thoroughly understand how to use your body to sing well and I have developed many way to communicate it to you. This means you will learn to manage the following elements of singing: even tone, breath management, on pitch, a well focused voice, and clean pronunciation.

I teach you how to sing with technical competence and to develop awareness of the sensations that provide you feedback necessary to sing musically and convey emotion.

As part of your studies you will master the elements of style that define the genres of music that interest you, including pop, rock, jazz, Broadway and classical singing. Elements like rhythm, harmony, articulation, pronunciation and tone quality and color.

About JoAnn

Your lessons are designed to help you develop the skills and confidence you need to successfully perform in public. I work hard to prepare your lessons and I ask my students to invest daily time working on skills studied at their lessons. Performing music requires the patient integration of multiple skills over time, however, the rewards are BIG. I continually update my teaching methods by attending workshops and master classes and I incorporate my knowledge of human anatomy and function, to help you perform with minimal strain. Also, I incorporate internet resources in your lessons to keep them interesting and up to date. What will your lessons be like? At your first lesson we will explore and name the parts of your instrument (voice or cello). We'll talk about what you ...

I am a brand new singing student, although, at 59, I am not brand new. After my first three lessons I am completely satisfied that I chose the right instructor. JoAnn is warm and friendly and makes me feel welcome and comfortable. It is clear she has a deep knowledge and love of music and singing, has a lot to offer her students, and enjoys the teaching interaction. I am thoroughly enjoying the experience and look forward to every lesson. Although my development is in the very early stages, I'm already noticing progress and certainly a more educated awareness of my voice.

Great Voice Teacher!

I really enjoy my voice lessons with JoAnn. She is a great teacher! I've been taking voice lessons with JoAnn for a few years now and am so happy with how I sound and feel while singing. I started out as a complete beginner with quite a bit of tension in my body and have progressed along nicely these past few years.

JoAnn is extremely knowledgeable about music and really enjoys sharing that knowledge with her students. She is passionate about music and teaching. JoAnn is patient and really makes an effort communicate effectively with her students. I’ve always appreciate her enthusiasm and the effort she puts into planning my lessons.

JoAnn also has a lovely music studio. It is comfortable, private, light, and airy with a nice view of her backyard. Her music studio is quiet and I never have trouble hearing her, myself, or the keyboard.

Great teacher!

Jo Ann is a wonderful teacher. She is very knowledgeable, patient, responsive to the needs of the students, and provides excellent explanations. I started taking lessons with her as a complete beginner and, with her help, learn to understand the features of my voice and the mechanics of voice production. Also, it is very fun to work with her!
Sarah N. Elk Grove, CA

About Sarah

I received my BA in music from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. While the school is not well known for music, the program stressed being as well rounded in as possible with a "Learn by doing" attitude permeating every class. I believe that this attitude is essential to all musicians, regardless of what style they are interested in. No matter if you wish to sing pop or opera, the basics are the same. I emphasize singing in a healthy manner and taking care of your voice. I also believe that most people are capable of singing well. I have been involved in several Opera scene performances, most notably performing the role of Lucia in the Mad Scene from "Lucia di Lammermoor" and the Marschallin in the finale of "Der Rosenkavalier." With this background, I can help my students learn how to ...

Amazing Teacher. Kind, Caring, and Witty :)

I took lessons with Sarah for a couple month before moving to another city, and I wish I could have taken her with me! I'm a beginner singer that loves singing all generes, but really believed I was a hopeless cause when it came to singing. Sarah worked one on one with me to teach me proper breathing and exercises in order to keep my voice healthy and within a couple weeks I already saw improvement. She was patient to work out the bad habits I had picked up before I started taking lessons. I highly recommend Sarah. My voice and I thank her :)

About Esther

I'm Esther, a very enthusiastic musician. I started out teaching myself piano and singing in a choir at the age of 9. I moved to the U.S. in 1992 and studied music for 10 years receiving my B.M. & M.A. in music at California State University of Sacramento. I studied and trained with Claudia Kitka & Jackie Victorino for voice and Kirsten Smith, Joan McDe, & Angel Mamn for piano. I have performed many solo concerts in the U.S. as well as South Korea.

I have only met with Esther three times and seemed like I have already had her for a year. She's a very dedicated and a very knowledgeable teacher. She taught me some of the techniques of becoming a good singer. I felt comfortable with Esther and never made me nervous. I had to stop because I'm focusing on my guitar playing but would like to go back to Esther in the future to help me with my singing again. I'd like to thank Esther for being so patient with me.

Esther is a wonderful teacher. Brittney is learning a lot and her piano playing has improved in the short time Esther has been working with her. We intend to continue the lessons; however, we are changing the payment situation, which is why the lessons were cancelled.

PERFECT MATCH FOR MY 5 y/o!!!

Kat works very well with little ones. She was very relaxed from the very first visit which definitely made it even easier on my 5 y/o daughter. During our last lesson my daughter had the case of the "sillies". Kat's tone remained the same & never once showed any signs of frustration. She was and is absolutely wonderful with her! Kat has an amazing voice & my daughter cant stop talking about her & cant wait for her lessons. We definitely made the perfect choice!

Excellent Voice Teacher for My 8 Year Old Daughter

Kat has been an excellent voice instructor for my 8 year old daughter. She is kind and patient, yet has a buoyant energy that engages my daughter in a way the some teachers cannot. The techniques and skills she is imparting to my daughter are invaluable. I highly recommend Kat for anyone (of any age too!) looking for high quality voice lessons.
Teresa P. West Sacramento, CA

My goal is to train voices to sing in a free, natural manner, while keeping your lessons engaging and fun.

Good singing technique offers you many more options as a singer. Technique can ultimately give us more freedom to express ourselves as artists, assisting style and expression. I will work with you so that as a singer, you will be able to sing through a greater range with more consistency. As a performer. you will become confident that your voice will deliver time after time.

About Teresa

I was born into a family of musicians. We must have had every style of music floating around every family gathering. I would roam with delight among the Mariachis, Rockers and R&B singers and musicians in my family. As early as 3 or 4 years old, in an effort to get me to quit bugging them, they began to invite me to sing with them.... at least that way I wasn't twirling around knocking down their equipment, or asking a bunch of questions while they were rehearsing or jamming. Music was always and continues to be part of my existence, as normal to me as breathing. I love to sing and enjoy sharing that passion with others. It makes my day to see my students grow in their talents and confidence. From beginners who just want to sing for fun to the more experienced vocalists, I can ...

I am very lucky to have Teresa as my vocal teacher. Her passion for music is contagious and when she sings, her soul comes through. She's patient, encouraging and energizing. I love lessons with her, she truly cares for all of her students and she adjusts the lessons based on how comfortable you feel. Not only is she a great teacher but she also has an amazing personality and a tremendous amount of energy.

Within a few months, my vocal range has extended and I learned how to make my voice sound more powerful. Vocal training really doesn't get any better than this!

Wow! Nothing but an amazing experience with Teresa! I had absolutely zero past singing history and in just a couple months I'm comfortable singing in church and in front of other people. She's quick to adjust to my needs, like if one exercise isn't working for me she'll come up with a new one that works better. I like that we spend part of our time doing exercises and the other part we sing songs. She has slowly but surely weaned me off singing with her so that I sing by myself now. She's always encouraging and uses kind words even when she's giving me ways to improve. Teresa is flexible with my schedule too which I really appreciate. I never thought singing would be so much fun!
