Jocelyn H. Chicago, IL

No matter what style you enjoy singing in, I will help you improve, learn new music and sing in a healthy manner. I have experience singing and teaching not only classical, but jazz, pop and musical theater as well.

About Jocelyn

I am currently a professional singer as well as a music teacher here in the Chicago area. While I am in Chicago the majority of the time working and performing, I do travel throughout the US and Europe for performances, which recently have included New York, Hawaii, Indiana, Toronto and Salzburg, Austria. I have studied singing privately for over 13 years in styles ranging from classical and opera, to pop, musical theater and jazz. I have also taken several classes on vocal pedagogy and the method behind teaching singing properly and healthily. In addition to singing, I have also studied several languages, diction, acting/performance, music history, music theory and marketing, which all come together to create the entire package necessary when teaching and performing as a singer. I have ...

Abigail loves her lessons; I suggested to her that she let you know she has a personal cordless microphone & amplifier. I thought the usage of microphone would be cool to use. Of course, this was only a suggestion, what do you think?

Kacey K. Chicago, IL

Those who have none to little experience with singing. Focus is mostly on classical technique, and how to carry into other genres of singing, or classical repertoire.

About Kacey

With my Bachelor's from San Diego State University, I came to Chicago to pursue my Master's at The Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University. I have over 10 years of performing experience, including soloist with the San Diego City Ballet's Orchestra, and singing in the San Diego Opera Chorus. I also have over 4 years of teaching experience in both singing and beginning piano. I have also worked in the educational world with children ages 4-17, and believe music can be learned at any age. Lessons are fun and creative, and will include activities to help understand concepts or games to get warmed up. You leave each lesson with a practice log for the week, and clear expectations of what you should be practicing. So if you want to learn to be a musician and you want ...

Jessica A. Chicago, IL

10 + years of singing teaching experience, an international solo career and a doctorate of music give a depth of background to my teaching. My students have ranged from opera singers to singer-song writers, to enthusiastic children and teenagers. I love to teach a variety of genres, but always from the foundation of a body-oriented vocal technique. I hope that through singing lessons with me, students will learn to control their voices efficiently, to become more knowledgeable about the music they perform and to develop the skills to be clear and expressive vocal communicators.

About Jessica

Jessica is an advanced candidate for the Doctorate of Music with 10 years experience teaching students of all ages and musical backgrounds. She holds a Masters from the University of California and teaches in a range of styles; from opera and theatre, to jazz and singer-song writing. She loves to teach a variety of genres, but always from the foundation of a body-oriented vocal technique. She encourages students to become knowledgeable about the music they perform and to develop the skills to be clear and expressive vocal communicators. When not teaching, Jessica is a professional vocal soloist who performs with ensembles around the world. Her performances have garnered praise for their “…virtuosic whimsy” (New York Times), “expressive flexibility combined with imagination…” (The ...

An encouraging, flexible and knowledgeable teacher

Jessica taught me for a couple of years when I was first staring to take singing seriously. I was very pleased with her teaching methods and general manner.
My lessons were tailored to my specific needs: Jessica was understanding of my limited technical knowledge but still was able to guide me through many beneficial vocal exercises. The technique I had been singing with previously was poor and possible harmful to my voice, and I feel like Jessica did a wonderful job of building up a very functional framework of ideas I was able to use to guide my private practice.
As well as helpful technical tools, Jessica provided me with insightful and constructive feedback into the way I was performing my songs, ensuring skills I built up from the exercises were translating across to my performance of material.
Jessica is easy to get along with, honest, persistent and encouraging. I would recommend her as a teacher for anyone, regardless of their singing style or level of skill.

Singing
Great, all-around teacher

Jessica taught me a wide range of techniques, from energizing the body to bel canto exercises, that really increased the strength and range of my voice. She is excellent at diagnosing bad technique, and creates innovative ways to fix it; in addition, she taught me how to master the basics, such as resonating the vowels and working with air flow. She is also great at helping you connect with songs and making them your own. Although I mainly sing pop music, she can teach you a classical technique that can be applied to any style of singing. I started with Jessica a beginner, but after taking her lessons I feel much more confident about my singing. She's also a great person to get to know :).

Singing Made Fun

Keanon knows his stuff. He knows how to challenge you to expand your range and he knows how to listen. He explains pertinent facts about singing and gives examples of what he expects, but he also lets you learn at your own pace. He is an excellent teacher. Now I just have to remember to breathe.

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

Deanne is the first voice teacher I ever studied with. She instills confidence and she helps bring out the bigger voice you probably have hiding somewhere inside of you :)
Deanne is very knowledgeable, positive and enthusiastic.
Thanks to her good advices and very useful technical exercices, I improved my voice in just a few weeks.
I look forward to every lesson!

Singing Lessons in Chicago, IL

Chicago has always been a central location for the music world, starting with the innovators to American music. Blues and rock legends such as Buddy Guy, Willie Dixon, Sam Cooke, Bo Diddley, Dinah Washington, Cheap Trick, The Smashing Pumpkins, and Jeff Tweedy from Wilco all call Chicago home. The Windy City has always been a key component of American music.

Want to join in on the fun? For any vocalist who is serious about their future in music, Chicago singing lessons are an integral part of your development.
