I've taken lessons from a number of double bass teachers. I've never found an instructor who gave me exactly what I needed until Geoff. He's the consummate professional double bass player and teacher. Geoff is intelligent, courteous, patient, humorous and above all knowledgeable. So, if you're a serious upright bass student, I would, without hesitation, recommend Geoff Bowater.

Wow! Amy is incredible! I felt super comfortable around her and feel I can learn so much from her. We started off finding a monologue for me to read. I read it and now plan on reading the entire script so we can continue to working on it together... I can’t wait for my next lesson!

Coach Amy REALLY gets it. She will put you at ease, and if you put in the work you will advance quickly. Totally worth her rates, I can't say enough about the quality training she has provided me.

Ready to uncover the expressive singing voice you know you have? I’ve been helping students discover joyful singing for 20 years. Lessons are tailor-made to the needs of the individual student with a focus on vocal health and proper production. You will learn how to warm-up your voice with exercises geared towards building the instrument, breath support, and tension release. We will work on repertoire with specific techniques for learning and developing a song. For students that are ready or interested, we will work on applications such as working with an accompanist or band, creating arrangements and presentation. Beginners to professionals are welcome. Let’s get started!

About Cathy

Are you ready to express yourself through the gift of song? In my 20+ years of teaching, I have learned that people choose to sing for all kinds of reasons but the number one reason is that they JUST HAVE TO! I have had the pleasure and honor to accompany many singers, from beginner to professional

Cathy is the best teacher I had! She really knows how to get to understand and develop your unique individual voice. Her method is built on vocal health. She understands a lot about different styles and that gives you versatility as a singer.
I am a profesional touring singer now, I had several teachers and I can asure you that Cathy is the one that gave me all the best tools for my voice. I get a lot of compliments about the placement of my voice and how it is very nice and healthy, my answer always is "Cathy Elliot made it"!
I not only recommend Cathy as your vocal teacher, I actually thing is a blessing to have her.

Very passionate teacher, highly recommended!
ALICIA
My experience with Cathy for vocal training had been nothing but educational and fun. I’ve learned so much about using the voice properly and for longevity, which is my goal. And tho some of the classes can dive deep there is always a lightness and compassion to them. I highly recommend checking her out if you’re looking to improve upon your total vocal production while having fun exploring techniques you may have never heard of.

Experienced and enthusiastic violin teacher of almost ten years looking for students! Lessons are tailored to each student’s interests and learning style, while also developing a solid technical basis. Beginning students start out generally with the Strictly Strings method books and are supplemented by chosen songs as they progress. Most important to lessons is for the students to feel their forward momentum and enthusiasm for learning!

"I played in the Advent Band with Vandi as our worship leader for several years. Her energy and enthusiasm was contagious and she always provided positive, constructive criticism. Vandi's knowledge of music theory was demonstrated in her ability to arrange our songs to suit the various skill levels of the band members and the congregation! This is not an easy task and she handled it with ease and grace. I would highly recommend her as an instructor."

"Elisa is a very responsible, skillful, and sweet teacher

Before Elisa moved to Ventura, CA, she was a master student and taught in IP piano school and Kwong Kow Chinese School in Boston, MA. My daughter, Sarina, was one of her students. My daughter loves her so much and made good progress when Elisa was teaching her. Elisa made Sarina relax and comfortable so that she was enjoying the learning process; she emphasized on skill and poses, she tried hard to help the students to get to the best they could. She is reliable as you can talk with her about the timing change and make up lessions. She came to our house to say goodbye and hug Sarina before she left. She is a great teacher that you can count on and you will enjoy her teaching."
