I always wanted to take singing lessons but never had the opportunity and courage. Mindy made everything easy. She is patient, competent and always greeting you with a smile. That's why I decided to take piano lessons as well ;)

I've been taking guitar and singing lessons with David for a few months, and I've got to say I've had a really great time learning from him! David is an incredibly friendly and knowledgeable teacher who clearly cares about his students and their goals, and better still has played and performed with the artists that I like best. It took me a while to find a teacher who was willing to teach me the music I wanted to play instead of starting with their core competence, so it was really refreshing that within a month or two with plenty of practice I was able to learn one of my favorite songs (Three Rounds and a Sound by Blind Pilot, if you're curious), and a little longer to start singing it, which I was really stoked about. He has been great about breaking things down when the piece we're working on is too challenging. David has also pushed me to pursue my goal of creating music, helping along the way to create melodies and lyrics. I have to say, it takes a great teacher to get me to sing and to share lyrics with them (do you know how embarrassing that can be?). I could go on, but suffice it to say, David is a great teacher, and I'm really glad I started taking lessons with him.

Juan is very patient and dedicated to helping singers reaching their goals. His vocal exercises made a big difference in how I warm-up before an audition, and got me a callback after only one lesson! I would highly recommend Juan for beginners as well as professionals.

Sarah is amazing! I had only had about 4 lessons with Sarah when my friends wanted to go out for karaoke. None of my friends knew I was taking singing lessons and they were surprised. I got so many compliments! I was so happy that even just after a few lessons, I could already take away tools that Sarah taught me and put them into action! I was very lucky to find her. I had searched for awhile for a vocal coach and they were either too expensive, really far or in group setting (which I was too nervous to do being a beginner). I very much enjoy my one-on-one lessons with her. She's so sweet and makes you feel so welcomed and keeps you in good spirits about training your voice! I will definitely be continuing my lessons with her! Thank you Sarah!! :)

I can't say enough about my experience with Ken. He is very intuitive. His lessons are balence between exercises and therory. I have alway found myself mentally stimulated, with plenty of work for my fingers. He is very energetic and reaches out between lessons to give you more music to play with. His warm and friendly personality make the lessons fly by. He also willing to work through tought topics without cutting the lesson short (schedule permitting ). I really appreciate his effort into his students. He has also been pretty flexible with my shedule. As an adult these are not the piano lessons I hated as a child. Lol

I found out about Anna when I saw a promotional video of her online which my friend had posted. In the video I was impressed by the high number of students she had from all over the world of differing ages and singing levels, from beginners to some of Beijing's finest expat live musicians. Right away I noticed the joy which every student seemed to radiate while being taught by Anna and they all had wonderful things to say. Me being a singer myself and always wanting to better my voice decided to give Anna a try. I got into contact with her first by phone and immediately felt her open, warm, friendly vibe and I knew then that I was going to like her very much. And when I met her in real life, that was confirmed to me even more. I had my first class with Anna and by the end of it I was questioning myself as to whether what I achieved really happened. All my years as a singer, I've had difficulty in singing in a quiet , smooth 'mixed head voice' and by the end of the class I was doing it. She had me belting high notes which I thought no longer existed in me. Anna with her fine experience was able to immediately pin point what I was not doing right, correct it and further teach me better and great techniques that I needed to achieve my vocal goals: all with a very encouraging and motivating spirit. I continued classes with her and was so honored when she chose me to be one of her back up singers for her band. Anna herself is not just a great music teacher but an amazing singer too. There is so much I can say but to not make this review into a novel, I'll end here by saying, Thank You Anna so much for believing in me and my voice when I stopped believing in myself and for helping to reignite my passion for singing. <3 Choose Anna as your vocal coach and see for yourself all the great things I have mentioned. :)

I can't say enough good things about working with Patricia. She is always on time, always professional, incredibly knowledegeable, and always ready for our lessons. I have grown tremendously since I started working with her! I've actually started taking both voice and piano lessons from her because she is that good. She is classically trained and knows her stuff so well and can explain it so well that even a 5 year old could understand it.

Emily was superbly welcoming and nice. She was very understanding of how nervous my daughter felt when she started, and how self conscious my daughter was about her singing. Emily encouraged her and brought up her confidence by a lot. My daughter loves going to the lessons and enjoys singing a lot nowadays. I would recommend Emily to people of all ages and ability.

Ben's a great, knowledgable and fun vocal coach that really caters to your needs, and then broadens your potential to things you never thought you could do. As a 21 year old male trying to be a pop/rock singer, in just a few short lessons he helped my range, breath support and overall tone improve drastically. Highly recommended if you're looking for good results quickly in improving your singing voice.

I'm a beginner to guitar, having played a little piano and drums before. Been working with Chris for a few weeks now and it has been a blast. He's a talented musician who is connected to the music scene. I wanted a guitar teacher who was connected to the local music scene, and so I've really enjoyed working with Chris and even going to see his band perform. I also love how Chris walks through songs and is able to write out the tabs and chords on the fly, and then on top of that show me multiple ways of playing the same song. Highly recommend.

I used to play in band as a kid, but I never explored singing very much. I wanted to try something new and was curious to know if I was any good. Ashten has started from the very beginning with me. I never knew how much went into singing before I took lessons with her. And she's been patient teaching me all of the concepts and works at my pace. I am really enjoying studying the voice and never knew how possible it is to become a better singer if you use the right tools. I'm definitely seeing and hearing very positive results.

I took voice lessons from Erin for two years, and it was a wonderful experience. She cared about me as a musician and a person and was excellent at explaining techniques in a way that I could imitate. Physical changes to my body (that she demonstrated and helped me see) made all the differene in my sound. She is flexible with scheduling and provided opportunities for me to perform and improve. As someone who has taken ove 20 yeas of music lessons, I can say that Erin is a fantasic vocal teacher and a lovely person besides!

Even as a professional singer who has made appearances on America's Got Talent, The Singoff, and X-Factor, and who has performed as a Backup Singer for Justin Bieber, Usher, and Mary J Blige, I believe there is always room for improvement. Ross has been an amazing vocal instructor for me. I've worked with Ross for over two years, and he has helped open up my voice, tone and range. Singing as a baritone/bass most of my life, Ross was the first instructor to tell me that I was a tenor. Previous to Ross' instruction, singing any note above a middle F meant either yelling or transitioning to falsetto. Once I started working with Ross, I was able to sing an F# comfortably, then a G, then a G#. And it hasn't stopped. Ross uses classical technique, exercises, and visualization to help open up your voice. In addition, to Ross' technical expertise, he is also very easy to work with. He has a welcoming and comedic personality that makes every lesson fun. I would highly recommend Ross as a vocal instructor for singers at any level in their career.

I had a great experience learning with Noelle. It was my first time ever taking any kind of singing lessons - she was very encouraging and helped a lot in improving my confidence with singing. She is also very meticulous and structured which I liked about her approach.

About

I am an experienced pianist, accompanist, and vocal coach; currently semi-retired at 60 years young. I studied classical singing at a voice studio where I also accompanied other singing students for many years. Throughout much of that time, I have taught Piano and Voice privately in several different cities in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area. My conservatory training has enabled me to provide my singing students with a study classical foundation; and my experience as a musical theater accompanist and a lounge pianist has empowered me to teach pop-contemporary styles of singing to interested students. Although I enjoy teaching piano as well as tutoring students in music theory and composition (my emphasis at the conservatory), my strength lies in training of singers. My singing students develop their potential in the styles of their choosing -- and receive quality piano accompaniment in the process. References are available upon request.
