Alex has been giving piano classes to my almost 6-yr old girls and he has really well connected with them. He is very flexible and he even introduced guitar to one of the girls when I had expressed that she should maybe try something else! Thank you Alex!

My approach is best defined with one word: natural. Everything about you is unique, including your voice. Imitating denies this simple fact. So I'm all about stripping away all imitation, getting you in touch with your voice and then making that signature voice of yours strong and flexible. Your voice should be as unique as you are. I work with all levels and if you don't like my lessons - I will give you your money back.

I am an experienced classical violin teacher who has been teaching for 5 years from ages 5-16, beginner to advanced! I focus heavily on technique and foundations so the student has a well rounded music education and confidence in the violin that they can take with them forever. For beginners I use the Suzuki books, I Can Read Music series, String Builder series and Winning Rhythms. For more advanced violinists I use the Introduction to the Positions series and etude books such as Wohlfahrt and Kreuzer.

"I have been beyond pleased with Kate. Her energy is calm and encouraging and allows the student to creatively discover how learning works for them. As an adult, having never played ANY instrument before, Kate has been the perfect nurturing guidance on this journey. I've also seen her perform outside of lessons and she is clearly classically trained but pushing the boundaries as an what an artist "should be" which I love as someone learning a skill, to see all perspectives. Kate is on time and professional and I have nothing but positive to say about working with her!!!"

My daughter took lessons for a short time and then her sports schedule has prevented her from continuing but her voice is so beautiful and strong now and Dora treated her so kindly that it helped her confidence greatly. My son looks forward to his lessons and absolutely loves Dora and his lessons. Dora keeps it fun and makes everyone want to come back again and again! I thought I would just take them for a short time but then looked forward to it so much that it's already been over a year! Love her!"

"first rate vocal coach, second to none.

Fawn does a great job of explaining how to do everything you need to know to sing at your highest level.

She’s shown me to breathe correctly and how to make it work the best. She is a great coach for voice students of all ages.

I'm both a teacher and a student and her breathing techniques, vocal exercises and innovative ways of explaining and displaying proper vocal placement are second to none.

Her expertise has helped me become a better singer than I have ever been in my life."

How Do You Sing with Vibrato? Tips for Beginners

How do you sing with vibrato? Find out how to develop your technique in this guest post by Hayward, CA teacher Molly R...   One of the main things beginning singers tend to worry about is lack of vibrato. “How do I make it happen?” they ask... sometimes at the first lesson. I usually make it very clear right away that you cannot force vibrato! If you do, you can easily damage your voice or create a very ugly “wobble." Vibrato is something you have to LET happen. Here are so …
