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.

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

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.
Melodie F. Chicago, IL

Singing lessons are customized for individual goals. Perhaps your goal is as simple as enjoying the healthy benefits of breathing deeply, strengthening posture, and singing for fun. Senior citizens can take singing lessons for the purpose of remembering old songs while sitting up and breathing. Singing lessons teach proper vocal warm-up, but also emphasize becoming familiar with the many standard songs of various genres. While Classical Voice lessons avoid the use of improper vocal production, Popular amateur-level Singing lessons include learning how to use the voice to create the sounds in today's music without harming the voice. The student learns to balance the desire to maintain a healthy voice against the purposefully incorrect use of the voice in order to sound like popular singers.

About Melodie

An adult voice or singing lesson has a minimum duration of 45min. The only scheduling options I accept are either weekly recurring or Schedule-As-You-Go. ALL "RECURRING" SCHEDULES MUST BE ON A WEEKLY BASIS. I do not accept an every-other-week schedule, even though the website allows you to book that way. If you're not taking a lesson the same time every week, your only other option is Schedule-As-You-Go, which means each lesson is scheduled on an individual, floating basis, with no standing appointment. I generally recommend the Schedule As-You-Go option for my students. In my "studio" there is room for one student and one parent/guardian/friend. There is no room for any additional people whatsoever. There is no waiting area, and the office is small. *** Specialties *** Vocal ...

My lessons with Melodie are everything I hoped they would be. I had the goal of finding my vocal range, defining what type of singer I could be, and developing my voice. She has exceeded all my expectations and I am learning quick. She's very patient, teaches in an easy to understand method, and has a great attitude. Best of all, we have a blast together! I look forward to each and every one of our lessons. Melodie clearly is a practiced instructor and it seems that she would be able to find an effective way to teach anyone. I definitely recommend Melodie!

Great results!

I've have a number of other voice teachers in the the past and have had mixed results and made some progress. Since I started working with Melodie, I have grown so much as a singer and musician. She has greatly improved my vocal intonation, breath control and vocal range. When we work on a particular piece of music her input for better interpretation has always been right on the mark and I am better able to convey the message of the music. in short working with Melodie has allowed me to find my true singing voice. I will be forever grateful to her for her superb musical guidance.
