About Barbara R.

With a Bachelor's degree in Music Education and 10 years teaching experience, I am confident I can help you reach your voice and piano goals.

I am patient, kind, funny, and love helping my students reach their musical goals. Now let's get started!

*** Lesson Details ***
For voice, your lessons include breathing techniques, vocalizations/warm-ups specifically tailored to your voice, and we will work on your songs, incorporating your desired goals.

For piano, your lessons include finger exercises, scales, technique, and working on your songs, incorporating your desired goals.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Please have a piano and a quiet area to hold the lesson in. Please do not have the piano on the floor or below the height of a desk. Thank you. :)

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students will buy their piano and/or voice books. I can help you choose the right books for you.

*** Specialties ***
Exposed to Kodaly and Orff training at SJSU.
My specialties are opera, pop, R&B, gospel, worship, choral, conducting, and piano.
