I am a fabulous teacher! Really. Teaching voice is my primary employment. I am highly qualified with years of experience and enjoy a reputation from students, parents and my own peers as an effective, perceptive and empathetic instructor and mentor. In a way, voice lessons are a bit like therapy, only less expensive and lots more fun! Often, I incorporate musicianship skills into my lessons. In addition, I work as a general tutor specializing in study skills, language arts, history and biological sciences, incorporating combinations of learning modalities to increase successful outcomes. An organized learner is a more confident learner, and minimizing anxiety leads to increased success and imbues a greater love of learning. Lessons are not a "one-size-fits-all" way of working. My goal is to meet the individual student's needs and create a program to help that student meet his or her goals. One other thing, I am the mom of two college-age sons, one of whom had challenges in executive functioning and auditory processing. Both challenges he "outgrew" by applying fundamental study skill practices. Today, he is a consistent honor roll student. In many ways, he taught me how to support learning. On another tutoring site, I have over a dozen references I'd be happy to provide you. Meanwhile, contact me, so we can discuss your interests and options.
I wholeheartedly recommend vocal lessons with Mark! I leave our sessions inspired and feel I now have a priceless and foundational understanding of technique. Lessons are fun and informative. Mark is the best!
As a professional musician, I have studied and worked at my craft for many years. Longer than a doctor went to med school and longer than a lawyer went to law school. I am first and foremost a pianist. I perform, I teach, and I share. I also do lots of vocal coaching since I have an extensive background in professional theater. I have played the piano for nearly a dozen Broadway shows in NYC and have musical directed hundreds of musicals from high school and community theaters, to regional and professional stages. I have also accompanied and played for many high profile entertainers, politicians, and Broadway stars. I am also the new Resident Music Director of the Berkeley Playhouse Theatre in Berkeley, CA. I want to continue to offer personal and private lessons to kids and adults alike as I make this transition from the East Coast to the Bay Area. I also run a very successful in-home music studio in the DC metro area, and with my passion to teach, I want to continue that here in CA. My services include piano lessons; vocal coaching; audition prep; musical directing; music transposition services; music arranging; recording backing tracks; piano accompaniment for your performance, recital or audition; and piano entertainment on any style of music for your event. All lessons are collaborative and hands on, and not at all stuffy or boring. This is not your mother's piano lesson. I am only accepting 10 new students, so join now.
Great conversation with Jane. She seems to have a very good understanding of what my daughter needs to get back on track with piano and loving music. She was so accommodating to make time in her schedule to meet with us before their lessons begin. Looking forward to seeing their musical relationship blossom!
I've been studying under Lindy for several months now, and have noticed a tremendous difference from the very first lesson. I had a totally different idea of what singing was before she began helping me unlearn my bad habits. Singing has become easier and more enjoyable for me, whereas I always felt like I was straining before. I can hear myself more critically now, and far beyond merely correcting pitch. I used to make people grimace, but now I make people say wow, and yet I know I can learn and grow so much more. Being a parent, working full-time, and being in a band, my schedule is hellish, but Lindy has always managed to accommodate me. I look forward to every hour I spend with her, not only because it always takes me to a level above wherever I'm at, but because Lindy cares deeply about her students and their progress, and provides for a fun, yet productive lesson each and every time. Lindy is also quite GLBT-friendly. I would recommend Lindy to anyone seeking voice lessons!
Went to my first lesson where i sang a few songs for her so she could she what i was doing. She immediately gave me some good pointers and excercises to do. Nanette explained everything very well and what she said resonated with me...which is key for an instructor. I'm looking forward to continuing our voice lessons.
I enjoy teaching all ages and levels of students. I also love helping them build confidence in their ability to achieve, both academically and socially. I have a comprehensive method of teaching, founded in classical and contemporary music and integrated with music theory. Students have different needs and I choose material or method books that cater to each student's age, personality, and visual/auditory/kinesthetic learning style. To inspire my students, I keep a mix of music styles and genres in their repertoire, for example, classical, boogie woogie, Latin, and Pop. Many of my students love to write their own pieces, so I incorporate improvisation and composition into their lessons. I feel grateful that I have a career I love. The quotation that has inspired me the most is from Sir Thomas Beecham, "The function of music is to release us from the tyranny of conscious thought." I provide ample opportunity for my students to publicly perform and showcase their progress. Annual formal recitals, NATS group recitals as well as audition workshops are regularly held. Advanced students are encouraged to participate in competitions such as the NATS Singing Festival held every Spring, solo recitals and community theatre. These various services make my offerings the highest-quality vocal education experience in the area. My students receive a premium service and attain premium results.
I cannot possibly recommend Rebecca highly enough. I had a lot of paranoia about my (lack of) ability to sing, so much that I had to spend some time getting to know Rebecca in other contexts (we were coworkers for awhile) before I was brave enough to ask her for voice lessons. Now, I'm so glad I did ask, because the lessons are fabulous. Rebecca is never anything but encouraging, helpful, and supportive. She always finds ways to challenge me without letting me get discouraged. I'm becoming a much better singer (people no longer politely wince when I put the radio on in the car and sing along), but what makes the difference to me is that something that used to be scary is now fun. (Okay, still occasionally scary, but in a good way.) This Studio has been great for me!
David has been instructing my 15 year old daughter in classical voice for the past month and we could not be more pleased. He is extremely knowledgeable, kind and inspiring. He challenges her to move beyond her comfort zone, but has a wonderful way of assuring her so that she doesn't lose confidence. I had no idea how "technical" singing is, until listening in on a lesson. After just a few sessions, we have already noticed improvement in my daughter's voice. I would highly recommend David to anyone who is interested in learning the art of classically trained voice.

I specialize in vocalization, breathing techniques, artist development and audition preparation to students 9 years of age and up. Because of my years of experience in the music industry and my knowledge of what it takes to sustain a career in singing, my customer appreciate that I'm able to share that with them, so that they can grow and develop their skill and talent.
