Gabriella H. Grayslake, IL

I my own twist on the Estill method to help illustrate the different sounds made in classical singing (dark tone, light tone, 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!
Jocelyn H. Chicago, IL

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.

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?

About Jane

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 ...

Wendy P. Chicago, IL

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. The goal is utter freedom and beauty of the voice, enabling you to express the scope of contemporary and classical composers.

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!
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. I have taught students from school-aged to undergraduate music majors to adults. My students have sung in professional and semi-professions productions, in vocal ensembles and as operatic soloists.

My approach is founded upon a body-oriented vocal technique that emphasizes physical ease and self-knowledge. I try to combine this technical training with an understanding of the texts, stories and history of any given piece. 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.

My musical background is strongly grounded in the operatic tradition and I've sung over a dozen roles as a professional operatic soloist. I've taught opera students from the early stages ...

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.

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.

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 :).
Melodie F. Chicago, IL

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.

About Melodie

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 ...

My lessons with Melodie are everything I hoped they would be. I had the goal of finding my vocal range, defining what type of singer I could be, and developing my voice. She has exceeded all my expectations and I am learning quick. She's very patient, teaches in an easy to understand method, and has a great attitude. Best of all, we have a blast together! I look forward to each and every one of our lessons. Melodie clearly is a practiced instructor and it seems that she would be able to find an effective way to teach anyone. I definitely recommend Melodie!

Great results!

I've have a number of other voice teachers in the the past and have had mixed results and made some progress. Since I started working with Melodie, I have grown so much as a singer and musician. She has greatly improved my vocal intonation, breath control and vocal range. When we work on a particular piece of music her input for better interpretation has always been right on the mark and I am better able to convey the message of the music. in short working with Melodie has allowed me to find my true singing voice. I will be forever grateful to her for her superb musical guidance.
