Margaret G.

San Francisco, CA

Learn how to sing in any style of your choice. I use a mixture of classical technique, voice science and medicine, sound healing, and the Somatic Voicework™ The LoVetri Method to help singers develop and find their voice. These techniques can be used for all styles of vocal expression including musical theater, pop/rock, R&B, blues, Disney, and opera.

About Margaret

I am an opera singer who enjoys exploring all styles of vocal expression. I perform and teach in San Francisco and throughout the Bay Area. My greatest passion is helping others learn how to sing and find their voice. I believe with the right instruction and determination anyone has the ability to sing!

I teach using a mixture of classical technique, voice science and medicine, sound healing, and the Somatic Voicework™ - The Lovetri Method. I teach any style that interests the student, such as musical theater, pop/rock, jazz, blues, and opera. I believe that learning how to sing is not on
ly fun and energizing, but also increases confidence, improves general music skills, and develops mind/body coordination skills.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons consist of breath and body work, vocal warm-ups and exercises, followed by in-depth work on songs.

These skills can help any singer become more aware of their voice and how their body works as an instrument. Students are trained, like an athlete, to build up vocal strength and stamina to sing songs and styles of their choice.

In addition to private lessons I also host biannual student voice recitals. Performing in the recitals is not required but encouraged. This is a great opportunity for students to gain performance experience and sing in front of family and friends!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Separate music room with mirror, chairs, music stand, and keyboard.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I use a 76 key Yamaha Keyboard at my home studio. I encourage the student to provide any kind of piano or keyboard with at least 61 keys if wanting lessons from their home.

I had only 3 lessons with Margaret, so although it is a bit premature for a review, (and I am sure she is well worth a five star), I want to say that she is wonderful. She has good knowledge of voice training and technique for improving. She has new ideas and always prepared for what I am looking for in a lesson. Thanks Margaret.

We have had the pleasure of knowing Elizabeth for the past few years during which she has taught singing to our daughter, Katia, at home. Not only is Elizabeth knowledgeable, she is patient, thoughtful and considerate of her students. She puts nervous singers at ease while encouraging them to explore their full potential. We are most fortunate to have Elizabeth as Katia's singing instructor as our daughter really looks forward to her weekly lessons.

Liz is great!

I'm quite nervous when it comes to singing and Liz is managing to put me more at ease with me and my voice. She is very amiable, gracious, and knowledgeable. She does her best to help me find my voice and points out where I could improve without making me feel awful or pressured. In just the few lessons I've had with Liz, I think I've made some great improvements that I can hear and feel when I sing, with Liz being enthusiastic about trying to push the boundaries of my voice gently while assisting me in reaching my full vocal potential.

I am very glad that I found a good teacher. Perfect for me, perfect for anybody who wants to sing professionally. Teacher Audrey is very professional, nice and artistic. She explains what's the logic behind and what's going on when we sing as well as singing practice. So far I have only had three classes but I feel more confident and it improves the quality of my everyday life as well. Being taught by Audrey is helping tremendously not only singing but also other areas as well. If you need a singing teacher she is number one.

Angel V.

San Francisco, CA

Contemporary & Classical Music

About Angel

Angel V. is a Singer/Songwriter born in San Juan, Puerto Rico on January 23, 1982. Son of Natividad Perez, a professional puertorican singer, and Angel A. V. From an early age Angel V. was exposed to music and to different Latin genres such as Salsa, Merengue, Pop Ballads, and Spanish Pop Rock among others. Angel started his formal music training at the age of 13 at the School of Fine Arts of Puerto Rico, even though he had been singing since he was 8 years old at different talents shows and events in Puerto Rico such as weddings, school programs, private and charity events and events sponsore
d by the Government of Puerto Rico.

Angel graduated with honors from the School of Music of Puerto Rico in 2000 and was accepted to and attended the University of Puerto Rico, Bachelors of Music. At the University of Puerto Rico, Angel founded Sueño Latino, an organization of 40 students dedicated to music, dance and theater. From 2000 to 2001, Angel V. managed this organization and performed at numerous events sponsored by the University of Puerto Rico during that year. In 2001, Angel was accepted and transfer to the School of Music at the University of South Florida in Tampa, Bachelors of Music Performance (Classical Music). While attending University of South Florida, Angel kept cultivating his love for the Latin genres he grew up with and was a guest artist at different clubs in the Tampa Bay area, as well as in the city of St. Petersburg, where he performed songs in the Latin styles that he loves so much. Angel also performed with the University Singers, USF Choir at the Tampa Performing Arts Center on two different occasions during the 2001-2002 academic years. His voice teacher at the time, Dr. Kay Lowe, dubbed Angel her “young Ricky Martin” a famous puertorican Pop Star.

In 2003, as if he hadn’t done enough, Angel got accepted to the most prestigious School of Music in the United States, Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. Today, Angel V. holds a Voice Performance / Music Business degree with a minor in Piano from this institution. Angel had the opportunity to study music with singers that had worked with A list names such as Whitney Houston, Madonna, Oletta Adams, Aretha Franklin, and Stevie Wonder among others. At Berklee, Angel made his concentration on Pop Rock/Pop Ballads in Spanish and English. During his years in Boston, Angel performed at the Boston Encore Piano Bar, Club Café, and Concerts in the Park at the Boston Commons.

Currently, Angel lives in San Francisco, CA where he is pursuing his career as a recording artist and recording his brand new single entitled “Amor Mio” or “My Love” a romantic, yet powerful acoustic ballad that talks about the beauty of being in love and finding your true love. "Amor Mio" is expected to be released in 2015 and will be available for purchase on iTunes. He also teaches voice and piano privately.

What to expect on your first lesson?

On your first lesson, I will evaluate and determine your proficiency playing piano or singing. We will talk about the areas that will need to work on to help you become a stronger singer and/or piano player. I like to tailor private lessons to my client's goals and what they need to become stronger musicians, capable of facing today's music industry demands. Each of my clients come from different backgrounds, some of them have been playing music for many years before they see me for the first time as their vocal coach or piano teacher, others have no prior experience playing piano or singing. Whether this is your first time as a voice student or piano student or you have taken lessons before your first lesson will be very important in the process of determining your goals, strongest assets as a musician and the areas that will need to work on to help you improved.

How long before you see any progress?

Most of my clients are able to notice some progress during their first lesson. My unique, encouraging, fun and caring approach to teaching speech level singing technique and piano make it easy for my clients to feel comfortable and let their talent soar. Now, every client, if they practice 30-45 minutes, twice a week, outside their lesson they will see improvement in their singing technique and/or piano technique within the first three or four lessons.
What levels and styles do I teach?

Voice:

Speech Level Singing: Beginners through advanced.
Styles: Contemporary Music, Classical Music & Musical Theater.

Piano:

Beginners through Intermediate.
Contemporary Music & Jazz.

I just finished my final lesson with Angel and he has brought my voice to a whole new level. Angel taught me so many skills that I will use for the rest of my life. He has a way of patiently getting your voice to where it needs to go to thrive. I can't thank him enough for all the work we did together!

Angel is a dream! At our first lesson I told Angel that I couldn't even sing Happy Birthday, he calmly and patiently assured me that I could and by the end of our first lesson I was singing a Gloria Estefan song. It was kind of magical. Angel makes you feel 100% a home and comfortable so you can focus on the singing.

Olga C.

San Mateo, CA

I believe that the most important in singing is the opportunity to use your voice the way you want and feel in order to express yourself. No matter what style are you singing the vocal technique is fundamental.
My students develop technique, voice strength and vocal range, so they are able to express themselves as artists in various musical styles depending on their personalities.

About Olga

I appeared in title roles with local opera companies like West Bay Opera (Manon Lescaut, La Forza del Destino), Livermore Opera (I Pagliacci), Martinez Opera (Madama Butterfly), Golden Gate Opera (Madama Butterfly, Suor Angelica, I Pagliacci, Cavalleria Rusticana), San Francisco Opera Company (Aida)

Love Olga's teaching style. While she focused on fundamentals and techniques, she made it fun and easy to understand for my 6 1/2 year old. She introduced an engaging and age-appropriate song for my little one during the first lesson and my girl couldn't stop singing it on our whole way home! Very much looking forward to more future lessons!

Olga is a great teacher and an experienced professional. She have been teaching my daughter last two years. I can say that it was enjoyable and worthwhile experience. I think she is kind of teacher who is in the talent-finding and talent-development business. She helped my daughter to come out of her shell and gain more confidence.
