I've been a professional musician (vocalist and pianist) for 25 years and recently decided to return to my hometown of Oakley, California to contribute to the community that raised me and supported me in my musical endeavors. Oakley is a suburban community located 50 miles east of San Francisco. There is a need here for someone who can bring the skill, artistry, experience, and the passion for music that has been at the heart of my career. My family has lived in this community for over 6 decades and has made their mark here as educators and coaches. That educational spirit resides within me, and my aim is to pass that legacy forward through music. In my own extensive career, I have been given the opportunity to work with a wide range of talented individuals from beginners to working professionals. I have collaborated with artists such as Patti Lupone, Laura Benanti, Jake Heggie, Andrew Lippa, and Ariel Bybee.
I recently launched a business as a private voice teacher and accompanist.Through the Pantle Voice Studio, I hope to contribute to Oakley and the surrounding circle of communities by teaching musical artistry to people of all ages. I love working with young adults who have goals and the potential to change lives and hearts through music. I also enjoy working with seasoned artists who wish to revisit and further improve their vocal talents. Along with my private lessons, I plan to support my students by offering master classes and showcasing them through a variety of performance opportunities. My goal is to raise awareness that music can be a vehicle for positive change in our community and world.
I've had unique musical education experiences that will equip me to pass greatness and inspiration to those around me as I support them in their musical endeavors.Talent should be celebrated, and I have the incredible opportunity to reach out and make a difference.

At the first lesson I assess where each student is at in terms of their individual goals and the direction each student wants to go with their singing. Some students want to work on basic technique, others want to get a part in their school musical. Whatever the goal is I am here to support and encourage you on your way to finding your true voice.
Playing piano since age 7. Bachelors degree in vocal performance. Masters in Choral Conducting and Collaborative Piano. 25 years professional experience as an Accompanist.
$75 per lesson paid at the time of the lesson.
When I was a teenager, I started accompanying singers in church and landed my first gig as a church musician. My grandmother was a singer and I enjoyed accompanying her and helping her learn music by making rehearsal tapes. When I went to college I worked my way through school by playing piano for other singers in my major while also studying voice. This gave me unique insight into the study of the voice and different ways to teach.
All ages. Mostly those wanting to have technique based vocal instruction or those wanting a vocal coach to help them learn music for auditions or upcoming performances.
Make sure your personality clicks. We all learn in different ways, and it is important to have a teacher that understands that principle and works with your strengths to get results both student and teacher can be proud of.
