Emmy B. Chicago, IL

I am a singer with over 12 years of performing experience. I have trained classically and in Broadway, jazz, experimental and folk styles and can help coach singers to use all the available sounds in their palette to create and interpret the music they love. I coach beginning and intermediate voice students, ages 6 and up. You can expect a lesson with a short physical and vocal warm-up and some engaging and fun risk-taking in song. I truly believe anyone can learn to sing well - that includes YOU.

About Emmy

I'm a working artist with a Master's degree in Interdisciplinary Arts. I have extensive professional experience as singer and multi-disciplinary performer and have worked as a teaching artist both in and out of classroom settings.

*** Lesson Details ***
I enjoy meeting one-on-one with students to set goals in their creative work, and to build fun and effective structures to meet those goals together. I enjoy working with beginners in voice, guitar and ukulele, and am happy to take students as young as age 6. Find your genius!

*** Studio Equipment ***
piano, guitars, ukulele

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect all students to have a notebook and pencil, and for voice students to wear comfortable clothes to move in. Ukulele students should provide their own instruments ...

Emmy is a brilliant teacher. Her approach towards teaching is very light handed and caring. She makes suggestions that not only solve an individual trouble spot or problem, but can be applied across multiple angles of singing. Her expertise in vocal training is abundantly evident.

I genuinely look forward to each lesson, eager to hear her feedback and input on the various pieces we are working on. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a great vocal instructor.

Really encouraging

I've been taking lessons with Emmy for less than 2 months, and can hear my improvement. She has a relaxing studio, and a patient, gentle demeanor. She's allowed me to explore and discover what areas I need to focus on correcting, then helped me learn techniques to address the issues.
She's very encouraging, and willing to work with what I have, rather than trying to force my voice into an ideal. I really enjoy my time with her, and get a lot out of it!
Amanda H. Chicago, IL

Amandas' signature sound has been featured in numerous media outlets such as WGNews, Time Out Magazine, Jet/ Essence, NBC Chicago, Suntimes, and Rolling Out Magazine.

"As a rule, I teach to help a person find "their voice"- it's when timbre meets technique, skill marries sound and a person is free to execute their gift well...consistently!!!"

Our time together always start with an orientation. We talk, learn expectations and most importantly I hear where you're at and then lay out a plan to get you where you say you want to go. Our space and time together is safe, intentional and productive. We will have a BLAST mainly because I'm hilarious but primarily because I guarantee visible, measurable results and there is nothing more fun then seeing yourself do well in an area you love. Currently, I am mainly accepting students interested in the flex plan.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, a depth of knowledge, some online material and book references.

Absolutely Fantastic Person!

Learning the techniques to breathing was challenging but fun. Amanda helped me see the importance of thinking through a song without getting lost thinking through a song. I mainly sing for fun, but it's good to know even in that I can sing better after taking this class. Thank you so much for your patience, sense of humor, and professionalism!

Kacey K. Chicago, IL

Those who have none to little experience with singing. Focus is mostly on classical technique, and how to carry into other genres of singing, or classical repertoire.

About Kacey

With my Bachelor's from San Diego State University, I came to Chicago to pursue my Master's at The Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University. I have over 10 years of performing experience, including soloist with the San Diego City Ballet's Orchestra, and singing in the San Diego Opera Chorus. I also have over 4 years of teaching experience in both singing and beginning piano. I have also worked in the educational world with children ages 4-17, and believe music can be learned at any age.

Lessons are fun and creative, and will include activities to help understand concepts or games to get warmed up. You leave each lesson with a practice log for the week, and clear expectations of what you should be practicing.

So if you want to learn to be a musician ...

I started just about 3 months ago. I'm 53 and never sang before. (Mouthed the words when the nuns made the class sing in grade school). I always thought that being a singer was an instinctive talent. Now I believe that with Val's help and guidance I can become a singer. I can feel and hear my voice developing. It will take time, but I have the confidence that it can happen based upon my progress so far.

Val is all you can ask for from a teacher. He challenges you, but still supports you as you learn. It was difficult for me to step in front of someone to sing, but Val has helped me sing more freely. I have been doing lessons for half a year and look forward to improving at each one.

Supportive and Patient, Challenging and Fun!

In just the few months I have been taking lessons with Val, my voice has opened up to a whole other level. His exercises are challenging and, yes, some of his instructions make me giggle, but they work! He challenges me to explore just above my comfort zone and is patient and supportive. I am discovering new areas of my vocal chords and mouth I didn't even know existed, and I can tell it's only just the beginning. I have grown so much with Val I upped my lessons to twice a week because I just can't get enough! You think your voice is done and is what it is? It's not. Go to Val and he'll prove you otherwise! lol

I enjoy working with Margo. She pulls me out of my comfort zone with ease. Margo's style of teaching makes it fun and interesting, yet I still feel that I am learning. I have only taken three lessons so far, and personally I hear and feel the improvement in my overall performance. She is great, and I look forward to continuing my lessons with her.

My 8-year-old son and I both take lessons with Margo and we are beyond impressed! My range has expanded significantly and my son's voice is going through a transition so he's been nervous about singing and speaking in public. His voice is much better and he even has more confidence now. I recommend Margo to everyone I know and now two of my friends train with her as well. We are all very happy to have found Margo!
