Erin W. Chicago, IL

In my voice lessons, I strive for solid, healthy technique. We will focus very heavily on breathing, breath support, posture, resonance, clarity, pure tone, power and strength without straining, vocal range, and problem solving. Depending on your specific goals and needs, I will design vocal exercises for your particular voice.

My students range from raw beginners to professionals who record albums or perform live regularly. Some of them have even been on Broadway!

About Erin

About Erin: After completing my Master of Music degree in Vocal Performance at North Park University in Chicago, I moved to NYC in 2010 to pursue my loves of music, acting, and education. During my time in NYC, I worked as a Teaching Artist through Wingspan Arts, acted in short films, and sang in concerts, operas, and musical theater productions around the city. I even spent my final few months there working in a Manhattan Talent Agency. Now, I am back in my hometown of Chicago continuing my work near friends and family! I have been teaching acting, modeling, music, voice, and piano to children and adults of all ages for the last seven years. My goal is to professionally fuse my passion for music, theater, and education while continuing to learn, grow, and share the beauty and magic ...

Erin was an absolute joy to be around. She was very encouraging, very professional, and was able to get a very shy child to develop her passion! We would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a positive experience.

Erin is very talented all around. I came to her never taking a voice lesson before and was amazed at all the information she had to give me. Every lesson we would build and I learned so much in so little time. Unfortunately, I moved back to Florida and was unable to continue to take lessons with her :(. Wish I could have brought her with me ! She is excellent she even made me CD's to bring with me to continue my practice. I give her a 100 on a scale from 1 to 10.

Penny R. Wheaton, IL

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

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 ...

I took lessons with Penny for about 4 years and it was the best thing I could have done for my vocal development. I have since moved to the west coast and am still sad, every week, that we don't have our lessons. My vocal technique and confidence increased dramatically because of our lessons.

Penny is gentle and kind, extremely focused, and I found her method of teaching worked very well for me. She is very meticulous, always observing quietly and adjusting the message so that you can absorb what you are ready for. She helps you to feel the sounds you are creating, to explore your vocal abilities in a safe way, pushing gently but never too much.

If you are lucky enough to be close to Penny, do try her classes!

In my experience of Penny this afternoon as Giuseppe's wife bringing our4 year old daughter, it was disappointing. I do believe these other reviews are probably accurate in Penny being a great teacher. But after my daughter left she was quite discouraged to sing. Penny is not good with young children which I'm surprised considering she is a Pre K teacher. My daughter was excited and willing to learn this afternoon only to be scared and not want to ever sing again. As a parent who paid for a lesson the last thing I ever expect from a professional is discouraging a child. To have my daughter in tears and not wanting to sing for her dad anymore is heart breaking. I may not be a professional teacher but what I do know talking about what a child should not do should not be discussed in front if child to have them discouraged. Children don't hear what they should do as much as they hear what they shouldn't. In my recommendation to any parent if your child is 10 or younger Penny is not the teacher for her. Quite frankly I don't want her teaching my child period.

Mrs. Penny R. is a fabulous vocal instructor! This is my fifth year taking lessons with her and my singing has vastly improved during this time. She is very professional and takes the success of her students seriously. She challenges me to sing as well as I can and gives many helpful tips for improvement, but in the kindest possible way. I would recommend her to people at all levels looking to improve their vocal skills.

Sara is amazing, and I recommend her as a vocal instructor for a variety of ages and needs. I’m an adult student learning guitar and wanted to be able to sing along without embarrassment. I have no vocal training nor performance experience and did not know where to begin. Sara is very encouraging, and is able to explain things clearly and guide me through learning how to sing. I've been making remarkable progress and gain more confidence and technique with each session.

I have seen a few teachers over the years. One who is currently a professor of voice at a prestigious university. One who holds many degrees in voice and speech pathology. Each has many successful students. However, none have been able to fix my problem. I started teaching myself voice after I "discovered" that I had a decent one when I first went to music school. However, I taught myself incorrect techniques which resulted in actual, physical pain. Since then I have spent years trying to correct this problem. I don't know exactly what Sara said or did, to be honest, but somehow she managed to dig inside my brain, connect the right neurons, and BOOM I can sing without hurting myself. It seems a bit sensational but it's the truth. If you want a voice coach who is professional, understanding, knowledgeable, and above all kind, then take some lessons with Sara.
Benjamin K. Chicago, IL

I have extensive training in musical theatre and have been in several productions. I am currently getting a M.M. in vocal performance at the Chicago College of Performing Arts and have extensive vocal training. I teach an open throat technique (appoggio) that allows the singer to sing with freedom, and access their entire range evenly. I also work with students to develop style, interpretation, languages, and acting ability.

About Benjamin

My expansive breadth of interests has led me through years of experience in the arts and natural sciences. I'm a voice instructor, math tutor, and biology teacher. Now, I'm pursuing a career in opera and vocal performance. I have extensively studied vocal performance and opera for many years and continue to add to my own technique. I have been in many operas and musical theater productions. I am currently performing in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolored Dreamcoat at the Booth Tarkington Theatre. I was a finalist in the MasterWorks Festival concerto competition. I have studied other vocal genres, such as jazz and pop. I have administered vocal lessons to every voice type at all different levels. I use the appoggio technique of breathing and believe all singing should be produced in a ...

Ben is a great teacher and great guy. Since I had a musical background and training, I was searching for a specific type of teacher that would help me improve my singing but in a specific style (singer-songwriter/r&b). Ben demonstrated a great deal of knowledge not only in technical instruction, but with the elements singers use in that specific style to be successful. That is not a skill everyone would have. He shows a thirst for learning more to make himself and his students better. I have already shown big improvements over a few months. So, if you are looking for a versatile teacher who cares a lot about seeing you improve, he's your guy.

I have never had any interest in singing beyond that which I do in my car, but I do now!
I agreed to take a lesson from Ben purely to see what range of voice I had. I planned on taking only one lesson, simply for this reason. As Ben had me doing the exercises, I realized that I had quite a bit of potential I never even dreamed I would have. He unlocked things in my voice I never knew I had. I learnt so much from that one lesson and had such a truly fun time, I decided I would continue.
I have taken six lessons now and I see huge improvements in my singing. When I sing for fun in the car, I now know how to "tame" my voice, I now understand the mechanics of singing styles and I understand how to breathe properly.
Each lesson I learn something new and though I tend to sometimes forget proper technique, Ben is always patient with me and, in a clear and concise way, shows me what I am doing wrong. He has a very good way of explaining things and really tries to unlock all my potential. Every visit I walk away happy and excited and with a lighter step. I feel my confidence, in general, has increased through these lessons. I fully recommend Ben to anyone wanting to learn what they are capable of with their voice...I've learned everyone is capable of singing. I recommend even one lesson with Ben to learn some basics and see what your vocal range is...and from there, see if you don't want to continue :)
