Gabriella H.

Grayslake, IL

I my own twist on the Estill method to help illustrate the different sounds made in Broadway singing (legit, operatic, belt, etc) through diagrams and other visuals of the vocal chords themselves. My technique focuses mostly on the anatomy of the voice but also includes other visuals to help my students place their voice in the proper way to produce the best sounds and to not hurt themselves.

Great

Gabriella has fostered a true love of music in my daughter, while training her with a skill she will have for life. It is a gift I could give my daughter that no one could take away--and I am so very happy we went with Gabriella. She is a gem.

Not happy

This teacher has cancelled a lot and often at the last minute. Not reliable at all. Lessons done in her mother's home which is not ideal and uncomfortable as other family members around. She doesn't want us in the house and never steps out of the house to give us feedback on our daughter's lessons. Very bizarre. Can't even rate teaching skill as she doesn't want us there!

A happy experience

My daughter is taking her first music lessons aside from school, and she is a very happy young lady, looking forward to the next lesson and full of her experiences when she gets home. She told me about learning to breathe properly and demonstrated her new skills. Not bad for so early in the game. This instructor has developed good rapport and helped my daughter explore music in a good setting. I look forward to seeing my daughter bloom and grow in her love of music. Thank you!

Emmy B.

Chicago, IL

I've been a singer for 15 years and have worked in theater in New York City and Chicago. My training and experience as a singer in theater has helped me to coach singers in a Broadway/cabaret style. I coach beginners and intermediate level singers in song interpretation and the mechanics of vocal delivery.

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.

Stephen T.

Chicago, IL

I specialize in helping students really dig into the emotional subtext of a character to not just help them sing, but to really understand and inhabit the character they are portraying.

About Stephen

I'm a classically trained singer taking a hard left at the corner of classical technique and real-world application. I studied classical voice for undergrad, but I started work in pop and jazz voice during my Masters degree. As a result, I've turned out to be a very versatile instructor, well-versed in multiple genres and able to teach healthy technique to all. *** Lesson Details *** I tend to be pretty laid-back. You give me your time and commitment and I guarantee that I will push for you as hard as I can in order to help you achieve your goals. I have a few recommended books for students to purchase, but no set curriculum. I expect that our lessons will be an exploration of our shared musical tastes with an emphasis upon building a healthy performance technique. For younger kids, I

Best lesson teacher I've had

Let me start out by saying something about myself. I have played saxophone for 5 years and bass for 3 But I never had any vocal training whatsoever until about 6 months ago when I started with Mr. Tanksly. I have taken lessons before but I have never felt as welcome or comfortable in a lesson as I have with him. He is very patient and encouraging which really helped me to become comfortable with my voice. Also he always has helpful analogies and ways to help me understand what he wanted me to do with my voice. Every time I walk into my lesson he is always bright and happy and ready to get started. With his help I have made huge improvements in my vocal technique. Overall Mr. Tanksly is an amazing lesson teacher and an amazing person that I would suggest to anyone.

Really makes you think

I have been taking singing lessons for about 6 months now, but I have learned more than I ever thought I would. Mr. Tanksley is such an amazing teacher in so many ways. You can communicate with him what you want to work on, and he always seems to have a good strategy or analogy to help you in what you are having problems with. He is very laid back, and as long as you come to the lesson prepared, he will not disappoint.

About Sarah

OVERVIEW First of all, thank you for taking a look at my profile! I hope that we can work together to find your unique voice and style. As they say, "be yourself...everyone else is taken." For that reason, I do not take the same approach for every student I teach. Everyone learns differently, and I want to make sure I am teaching you in a way that will make your learning experience the best it can be. I do expect you to have goals of your own, but I do have a few goals for you. I want to help you: 1) develop a healthy singing technique that will bring longevity to your career or hobby. 2) learn music efficiently and independently. 3) develop good practice habits. 4) learn basic ear training/sight singing. Now, here's a little bit about me. I've been ...

Wendy P.

Chicago, IL

Singing of all kinds begins with healthy vocal technique. Learning the correct warming up and use of the voice and breath is essential for a career in singing with any longevity. I use a combination of classical (bel canto) and contemporary styles of singing to bring out the best in each student's voice. We will work on breathing, range, voice blending, resonation, flexibility, projection and articulation.

About Wendy

I am a professional singer, songwriter and actor working in the Chicago area for many years. I have a B.F.A. in Theater/Voice from The University of Kansas and an M.A. in Interdisciplinary Arts from Columbia College Chicago. I've been teaching private vocal instruction since 2003: I host the Singer's Salon in Chicago, a unique and supportive venue for singer's to become more comfortable performing before an audience. I also instruct workshops for vocal technique and performance. For the past 10 years I was the lead singer for The Red Apples, an acoustic roots band that performs an eclectic mix of rock, swing, blues, country and jazz. I also have a cabaret/art song project consisting or original material with composer Jaroslaw Golembiowski. As a singer and actress I have performed with ...

Professional, Effective, and Challenging Lessons

Wendy is probably the most professional and talented voice teacher I have worked with in my time singing. She was able to quickly diagnose and help me begin to address difficulties I was having, but was also very proactive in helping me find repetoire that I enjoyed and that meshed well with my voice and my musical interests. She is extremely knowledgeable about the mechanics of singing, as well as the interpretation of song, and really challenged me to think through my singing in a way I hadn't before. Thanks!
