I help people of all ages develop a healthy – and playful – relationship with their singing and speaking voice. My students learn to sing and speak with a natural authenticity – a solid tone, an easy breath and a simple, open-hearted presence.
My teaching philosophy: if it’s not play, it’s not working.
In-person singing has always been a highly infectious activity, but until this year, the infections we could get were easily and inexpensively treated, and for the most part, not fatal. I'm anxious to see how the science and public health guidance regarding COVID-19 evolves. In the meantime, I'm teaching over Zoom.

RE: I want to sing!
I know the perfect person for your daughter! Michele Voilleque teaches people to sing and she is so fun and playful and funny and sweet that your daughter will love it. Michele won't judge her, but will take her from where she is and gently guide her into tunefulness. Her motto is ''if it's not play, it's not working'', which is just how she is. She is near the Colusa Circle, so very convenient too. It'll be so wonderful when you finally get to enjoy your daughter's singing, while she's enjoying herself too! Cynthia
I will repeat my recommendation for Michele Voilleque (http://www.mvmusik.com), a voice teacher in North Berkeley (she also teachers piano and violin). I think she would be a good fit for what you're looking for--she aims to help you improve your singing to get more enjoyment out of it. From what I've observed she is not obsessed with the ''technical component'' of performing.
An enthusiastic recommendation for Michele Voilleque, http://www.mvmusik.com/mvmusik.com/Home.html Michele is the director of the Youth and Children's Choir at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Berkeley, is a wonderful singer herself, has two children of her own, and is fun, compassionate, and a wonderful teacher.

Michele Voilleque is a natural at connecting with people, playing with them and making singing fun and natural-feeling without judgement. She goes for the joy of singing while teaching how to find the notes. Definitely give her a call at 510-552-8160 or email at singermv
I highly recommend Michele Voilleque of MVMusik.com She has worked with at least one other girl who was accepted to OSA a few years ago. She is terrific at building rapport with kids (and adults)! Lisa
I enthusiastically recommend Michele Voilleque's group classes for adults. Michele is warm, fun, encouraging, not to mention being a great teacher and singer. Her website is www.mvmusik.com, and she's on Facebook, too. Whatever you do, sing well and have fun! pwh
Michelle Voilleque is a exceptional voice teacher. I take singing with another teacher, but would use her in a second. She is accomplished and very fun at the same time. suzanne
The person you want to call is Michele Voilleque. Michele is one of a kind. She gave our daughter confidence in herself. Helped her explore her passion for singing and get accepted to Oakland School of the Arts. She is gentle, fun, positive and above all, incredibly professional.
