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!
Loretta M. Chicago, IL

Singing lessons are completely customized. Sight singing, theory, performance, pitch recognition, breathing, and posture are all elements within the preferred genre. Understanding the body and voice are also main topics.

About Loretta

I have always been fascinated with how music is created and who works behind the scenes of performances and recordings. I started playing the flute in elementary school, piano in junior high school, and singing in high school. Once I got to UMASS, Dartmouth I chose the Music option for my major. I then moved on to NYU. I have been teaching for over ten years now. Working with students both in person and online has been amazing. With online lessons I am able to work with students who love the convenience of being at home and in person I can show students what it is like to really grow! I love my students of all ages, and can only hope to show others how amazing music can be. I have worked with a handful of students with special needs and am comfortable teaching in a non-traditional style. ...

My 11-year-old absolutely loves Miss Loretta. She's enthusiastic, patient, encouraging and makes learning music fun. My daughter looks forward to her weekly lesson and learning something new. If my daughter brings a piece she wants to learn, Loretta finds a way to fit it in. It's clear that Loretta loves teaching and is a natural at it. We feel lucky to have found her.

In my last lesson, Loretta helped me work through a major misconception about myself. I did not believe that my voice sounded good in falsetto - so I didn't practice it, lowered my expectations, and generally created a self-defeating barrier..

The transformation in learning to love what's coming out of my pipes is more than just voice-deep. Now I believe there are new lands I can conquer! Thank you for helping me to love my upper register Loretta!

I've been singing in choirs for over 6 years and was looking for a way to get into singing in college, and I found Serena by a lucky chance and have seen her weekly since January - not only have my vocal skills and techniques improved considerably since then, but I've become a lot more confident in singing other genres.

Serena is a fantastic teacher and is very flexible with availability - she always tries to make the lessons work on your time, and as a full-time student juggling two jobs, that was exactly what I needed. Every lesson is great - it's a healthy mixture of singing, genuine conversation, and discussion of techniques and ways to become better at something I genuinely enjoy.

I would definitely recommend her to beginners and returning singers alike - she is extremely passionate about what she does, and it really pays off when you can confidently sing a brand new piece after having worked on it for just a few lessons!

A patient and skilled instructor

I was so nervous about taking up piano again. My experience as a child had been less than stellar. Serena was exactly the instructor I had hoped for - she quickly assessed my ability and was able to adjust her teaching style/lesson accordingly. I was a bit nervous at first, but her patience helped me relax and enjoy the lesson.

About Val

Whether you are an experienced musician or just in the beginning of your educational journey, I perhaps, can help you to advance you potentials and bring your skills to the next level.

First and foremost I am an expert in teaching voice. Not many teachers in Chicago have clients that are currently topping Billboard charts and get signed by major record labels. I do!!!

I taught in Paris, Barcelona, Dubai and New York and have an extensive experience in working with a wide variety of musical genres including Pop, R&B, JAZZ, Rock, Country, Musical Theatre, Gospel and last but not least Classical, which I can proudly can call my background.

Not only I have been continually developing my own art of coaching and excellence of teaching music to others, but also making much needed ...

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
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.

When I met David, music had not always been a positive experience. As an older student, I am not always able to practice and I do have other things on my mind. He has never scolded me for not practicing, he is very patient with all my musical hangups, and he keeps meeting me where I am at. I may still not be comfortable with music, but I am comfortable with him.

His ability to meet students where they are at, and to engage them with music that they care about helps his students to enter more deeply into the learning process.
