I recently graduated with a BFA in Acting from the theatre program at Syracuse University (SU). During my time there, I studied at the Globe Theatre in London, in addition to spending a semester taking classes with Broadway and TV/Film Casting agents in New York City.

Lessons include exercising that lower register which is so important for the "Broadway belting" quality, as well as upper register work to balance that big lower sound. Repertoire incorporates pretty much anything that is performed in musical theater.
ABOUT PENNY R. I graduated from college in Virginia with a Bachelor of Music Education degree as a voice major, and minored in piano and violin. My teaching certificate was for vocal, instrumental and general music, grades K - 12, and I graduated Magna Cum Laude. Graduate school brought me to Indiana, where I earned a Masters of Music in Vocal Performance. Migrating up to the Chicago area from there, I taught at a private music school (voice and small ensembles, as well as many faculty performances) before staying at home to raise our children, and teaching voice lessons privately in my Studio. After 30 years of teaching, I'm still at it, and I still love it! I am a Permanent Professional member of Music Teacher's National Association (MTNA), Illinois State Music Teacher's ...

Bio I have sung in church and school choirs from the age of four, and have studied classical music as well as popular styles of music. I sang professionally in the Chicago area with The Jimmy Angel Trio, Gentle Wind, and The George Hansen Trio, and currently teach private lessons. Services I never want a student to feel "stuck" in one style. I think you should sing anything you choose!
