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.

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.

James D

Instruments:

Music has taken me to see places of the world I would have never been, music has given me some of the coolest jobs in my life. Playing organ for the San Jose Sharks NHL team was a dream come true, and I am still the youngest person to have held that job in the NHL.  They still use all of my recordings. I went to the Virgin Islands last year to perform with a band on New Year's Eve, total paradise all to enjoy just for playing some music! I currently travel the country for Roland Digital Piano Company and enjoy being able to perform for different audiences on high quality instruments.

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.

Phillip H

Instruments:

I am musician with experience in both voice and piano. I have two degrees in vocal performance and several years of experience playing in Jazz, R&B and Pop bands for many years. In addition, I served as the Minister of Music for Saint John Missionary Baptist Church in Long Beach. Also, I was a keyboardist for Reigning Life Fellowship and Christ Our Redeemer in Long Beach and Irvine. I have performed The Pirate King in The Pirates of Penzance, Junius in The Rape of Lucretia, Bob in The Old Maid and The Thief, Figaro in Le Nozze di Figaro, Fiorello in Il barbiere di Siviglia, Imperial Commisario in Madama Butterfly, as well as The Tinman in The Wiz.  This summer I will make my professional debut singing Cascada in The Merry Widow with Pocket Opera.  I've also sung the bass solo in Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy with the First Congregational Church of Ann Arbor. I've sung for The Links Incorporated at their regional and national conventions in Washington D.C and Orlando, including singing before Condoleezza Rice. Always eager for acquiring knowledge, I've attended summer training programs that include the International Lyric Academy in Rome and Viterbo and Opera in the Ozarks.

More Information About Voice Lessons

Singing is a physical endeavor that requires effort, strength and coordination. The muscular of the voice is very delicate so it is important to sing using safe techniques. Forcing or pushing the voice is a common cause of vocal fatigue and should be avoided. Check for tension or constriction in the throat, as this is sign of bad technique. The extrinsic muscles of the voice (neck, jaw and cheeks) should be relaxed and there should be no discomfort of pain when sining. The best way to avoid vocal fatigue or injury is through warm ups, sleep and hydration
When you want to learn how to sing or when you desire to perfect your vocal ability, contact Musika for in-home voice lessons. Our experienced vocal instructors are skilled in teaching students of all ages. We also know every genre, from Opera to Rock. Simply provide a keyboard and sheet music, then prepare to master singing from the comfort of home. If you-™re not sure what you need to learn or what you should sing, our instructors can give you practical advice based on your voice. With in-home voice lessons, prepare to master the art of singing for recreation or professional performance.
Voice lessons will focus on developing proper breathing technique and vocal technique and ways to improve your singing. You will learn how to support and project your voice, you will learn how to read music so that you can read the melody of the singing line. You will also learn how to interpret different styles of music, performance techniques, how to emotionally interpret song lyrics and phrases. The most important thing you will learn in voice lessons is how to express yourself through singing!
Students studying voice for the first time as an adult can look forward to working on vocal exercises and breathing techniques which can help improve their range and tone. Adult students may be interested in studying primarily classical vocal technique, or they may want to focus on different styles like pop or jazz. Our instructors can help you reach your musical and stylistic goals!
For children who enjoy singing and want to improve their singing ability, we recommend delaying voice lessons until after age 11 or 12. The vocal instrument is a sensitive one that can be easily damaged or strained. By delaying lessons until the voice is mature, kids protect their voice. While our expert instructors are able to teach students of all ages, we highly recommend young children wait until their voice is able to handle the workload required for voice lesson success. After puberty, kids and their voices are mature enough for the daily exercises and regular lessons provided by our professional and trained teachers.
