Liz really is an incredible teacher for two reasons. One, she tutored me in my arch nemesis french. No one has EVER been able to get me to understand the concepts but with her patient, gentle nature we got it through my language project. As an fellow voice teacher, I can honestly say she's one of reasons I now teach. So yes, Ms. Patterson is well spoken, patient and articulate and loves what she does. I stake my professional reputation on that - Jen Vanella - Executive director "Sing and relax studios" Pittsburgh PAMar 22, 2013
My daughter had few singing teachers, Elizabeth is one of the best. She is nice, knowledgeable, very patient. The technique from her is really helpful.Feb 7, 2013
I had a fabulous experience as Liz's vocal student. Liz was able to help me move beyond my hobbyist choir member level of experience by introducing me to classical singing techniques. She thoughtfully chose music to my tastes to work with and communicated complicated ideas in a very understandable way. Liz is a lot of fun to be around and a wonderful, incredibly supportive teacher. She's got a great voice too!Dec 6, 2012

- 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.
