I can bring music books and a music stand for their music. I expect the student to have some sort of piano or keyboard that we can work with. For online lessons, I have a piano but ask that students have a camera and microphone on computer. Students must have rehearsal copies of music and may need to purchase books after a period of time.
*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical voice. I can also teach in popular music and Broadway theatre styles. I have studied some Alexander Technique in my own training and seek to incorporate those teachings into lessons. Having dealt with voice issues in my own vocal training, I am comfortable working with students who may be coming off of voice trauma. I also teach other styles of music, including pop, country, and jazz. In addition to teaching voice, I am able to teach other music related courses, including Theory and History.

I am a life-long singer and a life-long learner, and I want to help you discover the joy of having music in your life! I was 7 years old when I started singing in our church choir, learning to read music as I practiced with the grown-ups every week. In high school, I sang in the choir and in musicals. In college, I majored in Music/Voice Performance and prepared for my senior recital. After earning my BA and graduating Phi Beta Kappa, I worked with youth camps and community theater and church choirs. I began substitute teaching for grades K-8 when my youngest child started school and was thrilled to step in for band lessons and general music classes along with general class curriculum. My 4 kids were in bands and choirs and musicals, and I loved coaching their auditions and solo spots at home. I taught Voice and Musical Theater through CYT for 7 years. I participated in 5 community theater productions and sang with Chicago Master Singers in that time as well. Collaborating with others as they explore their range as singers, musicians, performers, and human beings is one of the most exciting activities you can be involved in...and you can continue to do that for as long as you can breathe! I look forward to working with you and helping you discover your own voice!
*** Lesson Details ***
Singing involves your whole being: physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual. Lessons will include each of these aspects in a personal and fun dialogue. You will learn about the physiology of producing sound and how your body works. You will learn how to convey emotion with your voice, how to address anxiety and build confidence in yourself as a performer, how to follow the road map of a musical score and how to develop sight-singing skills. You will experience what it feels like to sing with your whole being and hopefully, share that experience with others in a unique performance. You will provide a CD player and a keyboard in your home. You will choose the pieces you want to work on and provide sheet music and accompaniment. I will help you make the most of what you've got and celebrate the joy of your gifts with you!
If your lesson is in Math or English, my goal is to communicate concepts in creative ways across different learning styles. As a published writer and previously certified substitute teacher, I love helping students unlock the ideas behind symbols, whether they're words or numbers or musical notes!
*** Travel Equipment ***
Student provides: CD player, electricity. I will bring a keyboard and provide you with a CD of vocal warm-up exercises. I have samples of music to get started with, but eventually, each student will build his/her own library of sheet music and accompaniment tracks as we select songs to rehearse. Those materials can be purchased in many forms online or from a music store.

I am a Milwaukee area musician that enjoys music in all its diverse forms. My main instrument is the trombone (specifically the bass trombone) but I regularly teach and play all the low brass instruments, including baritone/euphonium and tuba. I also have a good deal of experience playing and teaching guitar and ukulele as well. I enjoy teaching above all else and hope to share the wonderful things music has done for me. My top goal in any lesson is to find out how music fits into the student's life and help them reach their own musical goals.
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
