Great Piano Teacher!

I've had a few lessons with Randy, and I'm very pleased with my progress! He is extremely knowledgeable and does everything possible to make a student feel comfortable. With Randy, learning the piano is exciting and fun! I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a teacher that will work with you to be the best musician you can be.

Randy is a great songwriting coach!

I have the highest recommendation for Randy as a songwriting teacher and coach. I walked into his studio less than a year ago, having recently started writing my own songs. With remarkable patience and understanding, he picked out the parts of my work that were working well (he always points these out), and he led me, step by step, through a process of learning how to improve both my lyrics and my music composition. He has an excellent approach of knowing where I am as a student, and exposing me to just the right amount of new information to take me to the next step. Randy is organized, has a good mix of theory and practice, and his teaching style matches my learning style very well. Through many systematic steps, I feel I have become a much better songwriter in the last 9 months or so. He is always encouraging, and added to my motivation for creating an album of my own work. Randy is now coaching me through the creation of this first album — a cumulative process that I’m enjoying thoroughly. Again, I wholeheartedly recommend Randy as a guide for your songwriting journey.

Excellent teacher with varied backgrounds!

Randy has been a wonderful teacher! I have worked with him for many years as a musical theater coach and now am venturing into improving my piano skills. He is so knowledgable about theory, music history and just playing his instrument that I always feel wholly enriched after my sessions with him! He really helps you to understand the how and the why that when you get into the piece itself, it all comes together and makes sense! He also is a strong advocate of finding an artists' authentic voice. This is wonderful because when you learn to play the instrument, he helps you to reveal your own signature! You are not just playing songs anymore. You are making music.

So far with Barbee has been a fantastic experience, she is a really talented and patient teacher and performer, she is humorous which is good, you don't want a teacher that is serious all the time, although she can get serious when needed.
A really good person to work with, in general great! I truly love her teaching and her dedication to students.

Excellent!

Two months of lessons have proven very productive. I have seen great improvement in my daugher's abilities and confidence. Barbee is mild in her ways yet tenacious; always pushing to the next level. I like that I am able to sit through the lesson. The classes run on schedule. Barbee is responsive to calls/texts and is flexible with schedule changes.

About Amy

I have been a voice teacher for over twenty- five years. My background includes ten years of classical training with Maestro Julio Berrocal as well as vocal training through the Feldekrais approach with Marcy Lindhiemer. In acting I have studied with renowned Stanislavsky scholar Sonia Moore and Master acting teacher of the Strasberg Method, Marcia Haufrecht. I believe we all have something distinctive that can be developed and expressed through the voice. I work to help the student discover their individual and unique sound. I give them tools to gain the ability and confidence to achieve their goals. I empathize deeply with the challenges that students face both in studying voice and performance since I have been a professional singer for many years. Through my personal experience in ...

Whether you are seasoned performer or a an absolute beginner I want to help you reach your vocal potential. I have loved running my own private studio for the past 10 years.

I have been taking lessons with Rebecca for a little over a year. During this time her high energy level and enthusiasm for teaching has made each lesson an absolute pleasure to attend.

She is a teacher who enjoys thinking during each lesson and providing her students with the right tools to improve their singing.

Rebecca’s unique teaching style also blends the technical and mental aspect of singing.

If you are a beginner or a more advanced singer looking to improve your technique, she is a great choice.

I've loved music and dance my whole life, and always wished that I could carry a tune. About a year ago I decided to see what I could do about it, and found my way to Rebecca.

I was nervous that a singing teacher would not want to deal with an absolute beginner like me. Rebecca immediately set my mind at ease. She has been so patient and supportive, and encourages me to push myself while keeping things fun. I've been surprised and gratified with how much I've been able to progress in less than a year, and consider Rebecca both a teacher and a friend.

Rebecca is a skilled practitioner (I love to listen to her sing) but has a gift for teaching and takes a professional approach to her work. She thoughtfully tailors her approach based on my skill level and interests, and remembers where we are lesson to lesson.

I've progressed in my singing, but the lessons have also had a positive impact on my life in other ways, such as my speaking voice when presenting at work, how stress manifests in my face, even my "oms" in yoga class are better. :)

I look forward to my lessons as an opportunity to explore my own creativity and vocal capabilities, and can wholeheartedly recommend Rebecca to other non-professionals.

About Jessica

With more than 24 years of performance experience, I offer my students a fun, science-backed technique that is perfect for all ages and levels. I trained at Juilliard, Pepperdine University and hold a degree from The New School. I began studying at age 8 with this very technique and have been performing in opera and crossover music professionally since then, when I won an episode of CBS Television’s Star Search. At 18 I debuted with Festival Opera Walnut Creek as Cherubino in Le Nozze di Figaro to much critical acclaim and went on with the company to perform Rosina in Il Barbiere di Siviglia and Sophie in Werther. Having attended the Music Academy of the West, and studied with the great mezzo-soprano, Marilyn Horne, I made my New York City recital debut with the ...

Jessica, Is an excellent voice teacher. She is kind, patient, knows music theory, and of course has a great singing voice as well. She has structured our lessons to cover the basics while also providing enough challenge to keep pushing me out of my comfort zone. I highly recommend Jessica as voice teacher!

A superb teacher

My experience with Ms. Tivens was incredible. She really knows her vocal science and has such a foundation in vocal pedagogy. Also, it's fun to work with her, not just a science class. She helped my range expand and made me feel more comfortable with high notes. Due to her extensive performance background, she has incredibly useful notes when it comes to how to sing in front of people. Just take one lesson with her and I promise you will comeback.

Jessica is wonderful!

I have been so impressed with Jess! She's warm and personable. She quickly identified what needed work within my voice and provides clear instruction on how to improve. She also recognize the strengths I had and reinforced them. Jess responds to emails promptly, and is really just the best! Oh, yes and my voice has gotten so much stronger in the little over a month I've been working with her! She explains everything well and when I don't understand she'll explain it in another way. She's in-tune with where each note should originate and how it should feel in the body. Lessons have been a fantastic experience. Highly recommended!
