Featured Alameda Voice Teachers

Harlan O

Instruments:

I grew up in Santa Cruz, California, and began playing piano at age 9 with the help of my older sister who also played piano. During my high school years, I focused on composition, which became my main area of study during college. Through my college training at the University of California in Santa Cruz and San Jose State University I supported myself by giving piano lessons, playing organ and piano for churches, and working as a freelance pianist. Currently, I am happy to be spending my time honing my keyboard abilities, teaching others to love the piano and music in general, and composing new pieces of music. 

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.

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).

Instruments:

I am a very patient, knowledgeable and experienced music instructor who loves working with students of all ages. I graduated from Sonoma State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in music education and a lifetime California state teaching credential. I also graduated from the Naval School of Music with top honors and I served in the Marine Corps as a bandsman playing the French Horn. I have taught music in many public, private and charter schools in California for over 30 years. I also taught music in primary schools in Edinburgh, Scotland for five years. I am currently teaching music at Cinnabar Charter School in Petaluma. I am also an accomplished pianist and songwriter having won awards for song writing in the children's music category.

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

The voice is the only instrument that actively requires the use of your entire body for its function. This is why maintaining the health of your body in general is crucial to maintaining the health of your voice. Smoking, excessive drinking of alcohol, caffeine and the use of illegal drugs or certain medications is strongly discouraged. Singers are encouraged to drink room temperature water to promote the hydration of their vocal chords. Excessive screaming, loud singing, or singing for long amounts of time without a rest can cause damage to your voice and should be avoided. It is important to eat a healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins to keep your body and voice healthy. Daily exercise is strongly encouraged, especially activities that require the use of your lungs such as swimming, running, cycling, or aerobics classes, all of which will increase your breath control capacity when singing.
We offer one on one voice lessons in home for students. This offers a practical way to learn the art of singing. Our teachers customize their lesson plan to work with your needs and goals. Lessons are generally once a week and are tailored around your schedule.
Voice lessons focus on development of vocal skills and breathing techniques to help increase projection of the voice and improve the range of the voice. Students will learn how to read music and also learn to emotionally interpret lyrics and melodies during their performance. Vocal method books and lesson materials can be purchased from a local music store. You can study a variety of vocal styles in your lessons ranging from classical and opera to jazz and pop.
Your voice is the only instrument you can carry with you at all times. Why not do everything you can to take advantage of it. Adult voice lessons are exactly what you need. Trained Musika instructors come to your house or invite you into their studio for regular lessons. We teach you how to maximize your voice, projection and breathing. If you want to compete in a local or even a national competition, we help you choose a song that-™s best for your voice. Sing any genre or musical style, and enjoy singing every day when you take adult voice lessons.
Voice lessons prepare your child for vocal auditions, competitions and performances. Young children, however, are not physically prepared for formal voice training. Vocal cord damage or strain is a potential risk that comes with starting voice lessons too soon. For vocal protection and the best results, we recommend kids wait and take voice lessons after they reach puberty, or around 11 or 12 years of age. The vocal cords are more mature at that time, and kids minimize the risks of prolonged damage when they wait until after puberty to take voice lessons from our professional instructors.
