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.

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.

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

excellent instructor and a wonderful person

I have been taking music lessons with Daniel since April of 2013 and it has been a great learning experience.

I had no musical background and I started learning Saxophone with Daniel and 7 months later, I am able to play popular songs that he chooses to fit best for enhancing learning curve. He does a great job with reinforcing correct habits from the very beginning and has been very encouraging and has highlighted improvement as we go from class to class. As music learning can be frustratingly slow, the feedback and reassurance he provides definitely helps in keep going back for more.

I wanted to learn guitar and piano with him as well, he encouraged to learn only Piano (for enhancing learning curve for musical theory concepts) and hold guitar for later. Which speaks about how he is genuinely concerned about your learning of music with sound reasoning. So now I take guitar and Piano lessons with him. He is very patient, polite and professional. He is great with students of all ages and easily modifies teaching style as per student needs.

Besides all that he is a great person to talk to. Numerous times we have had great discussions about things outside music.

I would highly recommend Daniel for music lessons to everyone.

Dora is an amazing music teacher. She worked with both of my kids giving them piano and voice lessons. Dora has a hands-on teaching style and integrates fun, a love of learning with music theory. She is very patient and provides developmentally appropriate exercises to practice. All of her lessons are exciting and productive. Both of my children look forward to not only taking lessons but coming home to practice! Dora has a way of motivating her students to make them want to work hard and get better. We are very lucky and grateful to have her as a music teacher. I would highly recommend her to anyone that wants to improve in their musical journey!

David E. Forest Park, IL

I have a lot of knowledge and experience in understanding the art of singing. I've studied with some of the best voice teachers out there and have many exercises and even will help you to glean some insight on some of the physiological components of singing- breathing, chest voice, head voice, mix voice, and falsetto that will in turn expand your range and enhance your overall tone.

David was my first choice and I couldn't be more satisfied. He's prompt and polite. He shows patience in it's entirety yet he is very persistent as he just only wants to progress. Also, he is extremely encouraging and not just talk. I told David at our first lesson that I had never touched a guitar before and that he was out of his mind to suggest we start with The Beatles as a first song to learn. He just smiled and said I could learn it by the end of the month if I really wanted to. It came out like a challenge but I liked that he had faith in my abilities, and sure enough after only two months of practicing I felt confident enough to get up on stage and perform live. It was my first performance ever. David's passion for music makes him a stellar instructor!
