Singing Lessons (for adults)
She was great! Patient, informative, flexible, and clear in her teaching. I'd strongly recommend her to anyone interested in need of a vocal coach!Aug 28, 2016Verified
Liz is my voice teacher. She has helped me a lot with expanding my range and being able to hold notes longer. She has also helped me be a lot louder when I sing. She has many different exercises to warm up your voice at the start of the lesson. She is also very nice and patient, and tries to make you feel comfortable.Feb 8, 2015Verified

Wonderful teacher and great with children!Jul 2, 2017
Elizabeth is patient, kind, and does an excellent job coming up with analogies and exercises for her students. Thanks to her, I have gained a great deal of confidence as a singer. Her teaching style is always constructive, but never critical or judgmental. She approached every class with a positive attitude and taught me how to use my skillset to improve as a singer. She even taught me a great deal about the piano and how to play as I sing. Moreover, she always asked about my day, my life, and how I was doing, and she always managed to put a smile on my face by the end of the lesson. She is a great teacher, person, and mentor that I couldn't recommend more highly.Oct 2, 2019Elizabeth Patterson, Soprano's reply
Thank you for your lovely review, Katia! You know I think very highly of you, too! Good luck in college! I'm so proud of you!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pricing at my South San Francisco studio location is $1 per minute. That breaks down to $30/30, $45/45, $60/60 minutes. Some students pay at each lesson, and some prefer to buy in sets of 2, 4, or 5. However you prefer is fine! I provide receipts/invoices for students who request them.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I approach every new student as an individual. I like to talk to the student first about their goals and previous music training, before we do any work together. In the first lesson, I quickly assess the personality of the singer as a guide to structure their lesson. Some singers will immediately feel comfortable singing new exercises in front of a total stranger, but most singers need time to get comfortable. I adjust to the comfort level of that student. I will often begin the warm up with breathing exercises and muscle relaxation techniques, while the student gets comfortable. Next, I assess the range and color of the voice, as well as its strengths and weaknesses. I let the student know what I hear throughout the process, so they know exactly where their voice is starting from. I try to give a very balanced assessment of everything, good and bad.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I often work with students who are preparing for an audition, performance, or for college music auditions. I also work with students who enjoy singing as a hobby. Many of my students play in bands and would like to explore singing as well.
