Featured Alameda Voice Teachers

Jan S

Instruments:

Fifty years of keyboard experience, primarily in the classical genre.  Piano instructor for 30 years.  Comfortable with special needs students (ADHD, Tourette's, aphasia).  I specialize in preparing students for higher education requirements and professional careers.

Leanne G

Instruments:

I am a patient and encouraging piano and voice teacher that loves catering lessons to the individual student, based on their musical interests and background.  I have been playing piano and singing since age five, studying classical piano until my college years, and then transitioning to jazz piano and voice in undergraduate school.  I also used to play the tenor saxophone and dabble in guitar.  Currently, I am the singer, keyboardist, and songwriter of a rock band that plays shows at prominent bay area venues.  I am also currently in graduate school working on an MA in Counseling.  

Elizabeth P

Instruments:

Soprano Elizabeth P. sings and teaches in the San Francisco Bay area.  She received a Bachelor of Music from Gettysburg College and a Master of Music from Duquesne University. A talented performer, Elizabeth captivates audiences with her graceful yet commanding stage presence.  She has been featured twice as a soloist with the Accordion Pops Orchestra at Philadelphia’s prestigious Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts.  She has premiered three song cycles by American composer Stephen Senderoff, entitled Spoon River Songs, Old American Songs, and Exits.  She has attended numerous training programs, including the Bel Canto Institute, the Atlantic Coast Opera Festival, the American Opera Studio, Duquesne University’s Lirica Roma, and the Opera Academy of California.  Elizabeth’s performance credits include: Nancy (Albert Herring), Rosine (Signor Deluso), Leonora (The Beautiful Bridegroom), Miss Silverpeal (The Impresario), Rosalinda (Die Fledermaus), First Tourière (Suor Angelica), Amy (Little Women), Nella (Gianni Schicchi), and Carmela (La Llorona).

Nika R

Instruments:

I grew up in a famous family of classical musicians.  I started piano at age 3, and flute at age 7.  I have been teaching since age 14.  I studied witih Louise DiTullio in Los Angeles and then pursued a career in jazz, and world music.  I have recorded six cds on my own label, Unika Records.  I have a passion for music and I am told that I spread that passion to my students.  I am very good with beginners, but I love advanced players as well.  I am patient and I encourage the student to learn all they can about every angle of music.  I have an extensive resume of folks I have played with, including but not limited to Hubert Laws, Freddie Hubbard, Taylor Eigsti,  Airto and Flora Purim. I attended USC, and graduated with honors.  I compose, sing, arrange and love to share my music that is inside of me with students.

Jacob T

Instruments:

Both passionate and laid back, ambitious and realistic, I have found great success through having an open mind and grateful spirit in this crazy music business.  My friends and colleagues have described me as consistently positive, easy to get to know, and warm hearted.  I hold two degrees in vocal performance, and consider the countless hours I've spent teaching in the studio and performing on stage to be my greatest assets.  No musician is complete without an understanding of the piano; my own experience began at an early age, and I encourage any student to begin studying piano as soon as possible!  I have studied with amazing pedagogues and scholars alike, and carry their teaching with me where ever I go.  Although the bulk of my professional resume is made up with operatic experience, my roots lie in choral music, jazz, and musical theater.  I have performed professionally in the United States as well as Germany and Italy.  I have a spacious, sunny studio space in my house with a very nice, 88-key, digital keyboard in up-and-coming Center Oak, just outside of downtown Oakland.

More Information About Voice Lessons

Your voice is the only instrument that functions best when your entire body functions properly. Improve your voice health when you take care of your body-™s health. That includes eating a nutritious diet that-™s filled with vegetables, fruit and produce. You-™ll also want to drink water instead of alcohol, sugary drinks or caffeine. Exercise plays an important role in your overall health too. Spend time each day exercising and working out. Daily, rest your body. Sleep well at night and don-™t over use your voice. By taking steps to ensure your body functions properly, you also help your voice function at its best.
In-home voice lessons are convenient and practical. One of our professional Musika instructors comes to your home so you don-™t have to drive anywhere or schedule extra time into your busy schedule. You can choose any genre you want, and your teacher helps you choose songs that fit your voice and style. You even learn to protect your voice, control your projection and show the right emotions as you master the art of singing. All you need is a piano or keyboard and sheet music. There-™s no better way to master singing than with convenient and practical in-home voice lessons.
Vocal lessons will cover various aspects of singing, such as vocal technique, song interpretation and developing a personal singing style. During lessons, students will work through different exercises that are designed to workout and develop different aspects of the voice. Students will practice exercises such as sirens on an octave scale, as these are great for helping to develop the necessary timing and coordination needed to cross vocal registers and start building vocal range. Developing range requires maintaining vocal fold compression through the passagio and into the head voice, tilting the thyroid cartilage and modifying closed vowel sounds to open vowels. Students will also learn how to support their voices with good breath management and can apply the techniques learnt to songs of various genres. Students can also improve their tone, pitching and musical theory knowledge, as well as prepare for gigs, recording sessions or auditions.
Our students study many different genres of music in their voice lessons, including Pop, Country, Classical, Gospel, Musical Theater, Jazz, and more! For every genre, we have an instructor who can specialize in that area, and help you achieve your musical goals. Our adult voice students actively pursue and are successful in auditions for major talent competitions such as the X-Factor, The Voice, and American Idol!
We advise that young students looking to take singing lessons do so at no younger than 11 years old, as they have yet to reach vocal maturity. Learning good vocal habits early on prevents the risk of injury or fatigue or possible misuse of the voice in the future. Students will also benefit from learning key skills like proper breathing techniques, hearing and recreating pitch and performance techniques. They can also prepare for exams, rehearsals and competitions. Learning how to sing is also good for their overall development, as they will improve their concentration skills, raise their self-esteem and confidence, develop and positive, hard-working attitude as well as a habit of self-discipline through regular practice and lessons.
