Calling all San Francisco Bay Area singers! Work one-on-one with a vocal coach who tailors each voice lesson to your individual skill set and vocal goals. Students are thoughtfully paired with talented and knowledgeable vocal coaches who can best help them develop as a singer.

Songbird vocal coaches are experts in teaching contemporary voice—pop, soul, R&B, country, rock, folk—as well as more traditional styles of singing, including classical, jazz and musical theater.

No matter what your singing level, Songbird fosters a community of like-minded artists for endless inspiration and collaboration!

To help you become comfortable and confident in your own singing voice, each Songbird lesson includes:

  • A quick check-in on how you’re feeling and a review of your practice through the week
  • A vocal warm-up to get your vocal folds moving in a healthy, easy way
  • Practicing custom designed exercises that focus on your technical vocal development
  • The fun stuff—Applying what you’re working on to your favorite songs!

Frequently Asked Questions

I'm a musician (electric bass) with no previous vocal training and while my bass-playing is proficient, my singing had always been merely mediocre ... until I started taking lessons at Songbird. Christina is teaching me to understand the physical dynamics of my ``instrument`` (the voice box) and how best to use this knowledge to my advantage -- and the results are impressive.
