I went in never having had a voice lesson. He took me through the basics in a wonderfully welcoming and creative way. I know I will be much the better singer after his classes!

Liesl M.

Pinole, CA

As a professional opera singer, I want to help you find that operatic sound from deep inside! Let it go!!!

About Liesl

As a professional singer, I perform throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California. I have performed the roles of Galatea in My Fair Galatea with Pocket Opera, Antonia in Tales of Hoffman and Tytania with Westminster Opera Theater, and Esmeralda in The Bartered Bride at San Francisco State.

As a chorister, I have performed in locations such as Lesher Center in Walnut Creek, Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco, the Kimmel Center of Philadelphia, and Carnegie Hall in New York City. I've worked with some of the top vocal coaches in the country through professional development
programs and graduate studies, and received my Master of Music at Westminster Choir College. I currently teach preschool and elementary music in the Bay Area, and direct the choir at Coastside Lutheran Church in Half Moon Bay.

​Voice lessons are a great way to improve your speaking and singing voice for the stage, the classroom, and personal enrichment! Music is a gift everyone can appreciate, and refining your singing skills gives you more understanding of music, poetry, languages, and yourself.
My teaching method gathers from and utilizes the techniques of classical Bel Canto singing, combined with holistic health, yoga, Alexander Technique, and acting methods to give you the most healthy and well-rounded approach to singing for performance. My understanding of voice science, learning styles, and child development helps me to structure each individual voice lesson for the student’s specific needs.

I teach private voice and piano lessons, direct choir, and sing professionally throughout the Bay Area. I hold my Master of Music in Vocal Pedagogy and Performance from Westminster Choir College, and my Bachelor of Music from San Francisco State University. I have had students perform in musical theater productions and choirs throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, including Pied Piper Players, San Francisco City Chorus, and the Peninsula Girl's Chorus.

These techniques can be transferred across most singing genres, I am willing to teach classical, opera, musical theater, pop, jazz, and country western styles of singing.

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

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.

ll create an action plan based on your level and vocal need. We will check-in from time to time to see if your focus is changing or your needs have changed. I am committed to you! Success depends on your commitment to the process of singing and a lot of patience.

Micah is fantastic. I had no singing experience at all but he was willing to work with me starting at my level. The drills were fun and built on easy steps of progress.

I know that i'm no Pavarotti, but I'm gaining capability and confidence every week. Lessons with Micah are truly the high spot of my week!

Emily T.

San Francisco, CA

About Emily

I provide a fun, supportive and creative environment for my students, exploring music with enthusiasm and finding new ways of approaching the voice to facilitate a healthy technique.

I teach students of all ages and levels, and all musical genres. I believe that in order to sing any kind of repertoire (whether it be rock or opera), you first need to understand and work on the fundamental principles of singing; body alignment, breath support and a clear, resonant tone.

Originally from Gainesville, Florida, I started studying piano at the age of 6 and then started voice lessons around t
he age of 8. I started mainly with musical theater and pop music, and it wasn't until high school that I left Gainesville to pursue a more rigorous arts education at Interlochen Arts Academy. There, I discovered my love for opera and classical music, and then went on to receive my Bachelor of Music from Oberlin Conservatory, and my Master of Music from San Francisco Conservatory.

Studying and performing music has been such an integral part of my life, and I have a lot of enthusiasm and energy to teach aspiring musicians!
