Super helpful in finding my voice and finding ways to explain concepts in a way that was easy for me to understand since I had no prior voice lessons or experience. Also, he is flexible in his schedule so it was easy to find a time for thre lesson that would work for me. Would definitely recommend for anyone who wants to improve their singing ability.Aug 4, 2018Verified
Been singing for many years and surprised to still be learning so much. Juan is quite professional and disciplined. He identifies where you need work and starts with fundamentals. You can't fake it with him; he'll know! I recommend going into it with a clear goal and he'll design a program for you.May 14, 2018Verified
Juan Carlos is an excellent voice teacher. He is very skilled, supportive and patient. My daughter has improved significantly in the short amount of time he has been teaching her. She has learned so much. I highly recommend him.Mar 2, 2018Verified
Juan Carlos is such a great teacher. He is helping my son learn piano and teaching him how to use his voice properly. He is patient, kind, and clear when teaching my 12 year old who is not very confident yet with his singing. My son is learning how to listen and match pitch. Juan Carlos always finds a teaching approach to help my son understand what to do. I definitely recommend Juan Carlos! Melanie HernandezJan 22, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Lessons are due in advance on a monthly basis. Only paid lessons will be scheduled; otherwise, the time slot will be available for other students. The total monthly fee is calculated based on the lesson's length and the number of lessons per month. * Lessons take place at my home studio in Berkeley, CA.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I graduated with honors from UC Berkeley’s music department and received the David and Diana Menn Memorial Prize in the Performing Arts, and the Mary Nuñes Souza Award, both prizes awarded every year for outstanding achievement in the arts. I regularly attend pedagogy and performance seminars, and coach weekly with master teachers to improve my teaching and performance skills. Part of my training includes the Alexander Technique and the Taubman Approach. I have a trustworthy and reliable network of professionals to whom I can refer you if you are dealing with a piano or singing related injury.
- What types of customers have you worked with?My studio is very diverse and I'm working with young and adult beginners, college level students, and advanced musicians pursuing music professionally.
