Whether you want to work on opera or classical music in general, or just gain a better understanding of healthy singing technique, I am a great voice teacher with several years of experience and a masters degree in vocal performance. I am open to working on art songs, arias, scenes, operatic roles or chorus parts in Italian, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese and Latin.
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 advanced classes on vocal pedagogy and the method behind teaching singing properly and healthily. In addition to singing, I have also studied several languages (Italian, German, French, Spanish), diction, acting/performance, music history, music theory and marketing, which all come together to create the entire package necessary when teaching ...
I've studied classical voice going on 10 years, and I've been teaching classical voice for 4 years. Whether you are just starting out or trying to fine tune your craft, I can help you achieve your goals.
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 ...
Studied and performed Italian arias under some excellent voice instructors.
I am a professional musician who enjoys helping young people reach their musical goals. I perform regularly as a solo act and play with a band at various hotels in Chicago. I went to Millikin University in Decatur for music where I toured the country and played and sang in the top ensembles. I also studied at the Music Industry Workshop in Chicago for music production and engineering. My goal is to help you learn the songs you love and show you how to make the technical side of music more fun than you ever imagined! *** Lesson Details *** You can expect a laid back atmosphere that is very productive. I use a custom curriculum that is catered to the needs and desires of the individual. Whether you would like to be a concert pianist, a jazzy horn player, or someone who wants to ...
I am a graduate of Lawrence University with a BA in Music (Piano) and German. I've played piano for almost 20 years, but in college performed more with voice. In college as a BA candidate I was able to take a variety of lessons, including classical piano (my major), jazz piano, classical voice, and jazz voice. One of my favorite projects in college included a recital comprised of all the types of music I love playing and learning about such as a solo piano piece, a few piano duets, a piece where I sang and accompanied myself, a vocal jazz small group, and a few others. I'm currently working in a jazz trio with a guitarist and trumpeter playing (and singing) tunes from tons of different genres, such as Erykah Badu's "Window Seat", Thom Yorke's "Eraser", Incubus' "Anti-Gravity Love ...
Bel canto instruction and technique with a clear outline of warm up techniques using Kristin Linklater techniques. I am a classically trained singer, familiar with the repertoire, as well as diction in Italian, French, German and Latin.

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 ...
A Classical Voice, Opera Voice, or Opera Singing student must be at least 12 years old. Singing lessons are appropriate for ages 5 and older. Opera Voice lessons are the same as Classical Voice lessons, but with an emphasis on building power and endurance.
An adult voice or singing lesson has a minimum duration of 45min. The scheduling options I accept are either weekly recurring or Schedule-As-You-Go. All "recurring" schedules must be on a weekly basis. If you're not taking a lesson at the same time every week with me, then your option is Schedule-As-You-Go, which means each lesson is scheduled on an individual, floating basis, with no standing appointment. I generally recommend the Schedule As-You-Go option for my students. If the student is younger than 18, I must meet a parent/guardian before or at the first lesson. If the child's lesson is in my studio, the parent/guardian must see my studio before or at the first lesson. In my "studio" there is room for one student and one parent/guardian/friend. There is no room for any ...
