Ruth E.

Santa Rosa, CA

About Ruth

I've been a professional musician for many years in the classical singing world. I love all kinds of music and have been teaching for over ten years, students ages 5 to 80. I'm known for being very kind and supportive. I have two degrees in Music, one from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, England. I've been active on classical choral and early music recordings and therefore I get to vote in the GRAMMYs ... my high school students usually help me to consider the Best New Artist category although I have strong opinions of my own because I love pop music too! I teach beginning p
iano, and all levels of singing. I've raised two great kids of my own and am married to another professional musician. I love helping people to bring more music into their lives!

Hi, I'm 9 years-old and I think Ruth is very nice!!!!! She understands how you can sometimes feel uncomfortable, and she puts me at ease. I'd say that once you've had 3 lessons with her you'd feel completely comfortable with her. But I was comfortable with her at 2!! She teaches you how to sing in a healthy way, and teaches you how to take care of your vocal cords. Long story short, if you take her class you will love it!!!

Ruth is a consummate voice teacher. I went through many other teachers around whom I felt uncomfortable. She is extremely sensitive. She listens carefully to your voice, your feelings, and to how your body feels. I have been able to do amazing things vocally that I only dreamed of previously. She also understands so many styles, including early music, folk, opera, and Broadway. Right now we are working on a Monteverdi solo with lots of ornamentation.

Beverly J.

Santa Rosa, CA

About Beverly

I have a life long passion for the sound of the flute, and have been very lucky to have had some legendary teachers. I love passing on the tradition of great flute playing. I have played in symphony orchestras around the country, recorded albums, performed with chamber music groups, and taught at elementary, middle schools, high schools, and colleges. I enjoy teaching all levels, focusing on developing a beautiful tone, an ear for pitch and rhythm, exposure to the repertoire, and the fun of ensemble playing.

Beverly is amazing. She is more than a flute teacher. She is a life coach, a mentor, a friend and an inspiration. She recognized and encouraged both my girls to reach the levels that they wanted. Prianca continued to learn the flute till she graduated high school and Kavya learned till her sophomore year in high school. They both loved Beverly's lessons and we owe her much.

My son has been taking flute lessons from Miss Beverly for five years, and we couldn't be happier. Not only is she a terrific teacher with impeccable credentials, she's a wonderful person. She has a delightful sense of humor, is kind, and always seems to know the right thing to say. Sometimes that is encouragement, sometimes sympathy, and sometimes it's a little push. Miss Beverly's broad knowledge of the world of music is a big bonus. We look forward to our lessons each week.

Beverly Jacobs is a terrific teacher. She has worked with our daughter Sabina for over three years and kept her inspired in music and with the flute. She is easy to be around and has become a friend to our whole family. My daughter looks forward to her lessons and has made a lot of progress working with Beverly. She has a large range of knowledge about flute repertoire and technique.

Zach G.

Santa Rosa, CA

About Zach

My name is Zach. I teach both guitar and wine, though rarely together.

Guitar: I have been playing guitar for 15 years. It has always been a hobby of mine, but I really enjoy teaching it and I would love a chance to teach more.

Wine: I am trained as a Sommelier and I have about 6 years wine experience. I own a consultation business and I absolutely adore teaching people about the complexities of flavor in different wines. These classes make for fun parties, are as interactive or non-interactive as you'd like them to be, and they can really help you develop both your ability to tast
e wine and also your ability to enjoy wine. Depending on what you would like to learn and how many people are going to an event, I charge different amounts, and I'm more than happy to do a tasting elsewhere, even in your own home or at a restaurant. Wine students must be 21 years or older, NO EXCEPTIONS!

Alison Q.

Santa Rosa, CA

About Alison

The only thing Alison loves more than performing onstage is teaching and sharing music with her students. After studying Classical Voice in San Francisco and performing in a variety of genres throughout the Bay Area as well as New York City, Alison understands the sensitivity along with the musical structure that goes into a wonderful performance!
Working with Alison you will open up your vocal sound and begin to understand the intricacies that come with healthy resonant phonation, and build confidence in your body as a performer telling the story of a song, but most importantly have fun whil
e doing it!
Alison is also well trained in theory and ear training/sight reading and can implement those teachings into your lesson if you desire, for a fully rounded lesson in music.

Can Anyone Learn to Sing? Five Steps to Instantly Improve

Closer to home, you may have sung in a choir, or even attempted singing lessons, but became frustrated as you found that your voice didn’t match up to your expectations.
