About Margo
Are you ready to fall in love with your voice? Are you ready for something different? If your voice isn’t becoming to you, YOU should be coming to ME!

I know what it's like to be frustrated with boring exercises and processes that seem to take a lot of time but yield no results. That's why I decided to teach DIFFERENTLY!

I've invested a lot of time, energy, emotion and $$$ on big-name schools and "experts", only to be disappointed with what I was taught because a lot of the information or techniques they employed simply didn't apply to me or my goals.

Since 1997, I have perfected the K.I.S.S. methodology to improve sales, stage performance, professional advancement and overall quality of life. My effectiveness and willingness to guarantee my work sets me worlds apart from every other professional in my field. Furthermore,
I have been named "Top Producer" in EVERY sales and management position held and have won first place in every singing and speech competition EVER entered since 1991. However, with my accolades, I am humble, easy-going and take a light-hearted and humorous approach to my coaching sessions.

At an early age, I was taught the importance of working "smart" and not "hard." Efficiency and effectiveness were the order of every day.
As the daughter of a Master Herbalist/musician (mother) and bodybuilder/ musician/ policeman (father), wellness, discipline and the stage have always been the way of life.

As a child, I was fascinated by my mother's stories of performing with members of Earth, Wind and Fire and other famous musicians and marveled at my father's accounts of being a friend and colleague of Sergio "The Myth" Oliva (3x Mr. Olympia). These experiences piqued a strong interest in stage performance and resulted in years of training in fine arts, fitness and linguistics. I was constantly reminded that the best performers in any field are "complete packages", meaning that they are well-rounded and adept in multiple facets of their chosen field.

To become a complete package, I studied classical piano and vocal performance at Sherwood Conservatory of Music and VanderCook College of Music; martial arts (Hapkido) at Hyun's; Fashion Design and Merchandise Management at International Academy of Design & Technology; herbal medicine at The School of Natural Healing; acting and musical improvisation at ETA Theatre and The Second City; flag, rifle and sabre twirling with South Shore Drill Team and runway/print modeling at Barbizon and The Fashion Connection. I have also studied tap, liturgical, ballet, modern, salsa, ballroom and street dance; speech therapy; actively study psychology, anatomy and nutrition and am a NESTA-certified wellness coach.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each lesson is tailor-made to suit the student's individual needs. Custom action plan will be given to each student on a case-by-case basis. No instruments are used in my lessons, as I train the voice to be a standalone instrument. However, if you would like to accompany yourself with a guitar, piano or percussion instrument, you are very welcome to do so.

*Please note that 15-minute sessions are ONLY available online. In-person sessions must be a minimum of 30 minutes. 31 and 61-minute sessions are for whistle register training only.

Online Disclaimer:
When choosing online lessons, please make sure that your system is functioning properly, that you know how to use the platform, that you have a good internet connection and that you are logged in on time, as no concessions will be made for time used due to technical difficulties.

Timing Disclaimer:
Our time together is very valuable. If you are not on time for your session, the missed portion will not be made up at the end of the session. If I am not on time, I will make up the missed portion at the end of the session or alternate agreed-upon time. No exceptions or make-up sessions will be made for illness, weather, transportation issues (including car trouble), or any other short-notice reason. Rescheduled lessons must be made a minimum of 48 hours in advance and must be made up within the calendar week of the original lesson. If it is not made up within that week, it will still count as a paid session and cannot be made up at a later time.

About Robert
As a native of Chattanooga, TN, I have been hailed by critics as a “sonorous-voiced” bass-baritone with “rich tones” who creates “a solid foundation for the entire performance.”

That’s the first sentence of my professional biography. I thought I'd use it to get the ball rolling.

I wasn’t always a performer. In fact, I’m what you’d call an introvert, but I always loved music. In high school, I was pressured into auditioning for the school musical and I actually got a lead role! From that moment on I was hooked and the trajectory of my life was altered forever!

I went to Berry College for my Bachelor of Music Education degree. My voice teacher taught me how to fill a theater with the sound of my voice WITHOUT A MICROPHONE! He nudged me onward to get my Master’s degree at the prestigious School of Music at Indiana University, wh
ere I met my wife, Michelle Kei Ishuu, who is also a great performer and teacher. We often teach together, so you get twice the benefit in your lessons!

We have lived in San Diego and New York City. We’ve performed on stages across the country and throughout Europe and we’ve worked with some AMAZING artists over the years who have graciously shared their gifts with us. Now, we have the pleasure of sharing what we’ve learned with our students.

Do you want to learn a bulletproof singing technique that can be easily modified to sing anything from Opera to Broadway? I can teach you. Do you need someone to help you become a better performer and realize your full dramatic potential? I can do that, too.

The goal of learning to be a better performer is to perform better. Through our partnership with Southminster Presbyterian Church, we can offer you the added benefit of a supportive space to try out your new skills. When you’re performance-ready, you can perform for a live audience in one of our scheduled recitals or even as a special musical guest for one of Southminster’s regular church services.

Let me help you find your REAL VOICE!!!

Questions? Just ask. I look forward to hearing from you!

I absolutely adore working with Robert in preparation for my future in the voice and music industry. His technique and approach for both the voice and music theory is not only helpful but also fun. Under his instruction I'm both able to learn both technique on how to better my sound and the anatomy behind it. I enjoy going to voice twice a week and I always look forward to my lessons as they approach. I truly feel I am being prepared in the bests ways possible for my future as well as the most fun learning environment voice teachers have to offer.

I highly recommend Robert as anyone's vocal teacher! I'm very ambitious when it comes to what I want to accomplish with each lesson, and Robert has been very dedicated to helping me achieve my goals every week. He also pushes me to do better at each lesson, which is definitely a great motivator to keep up my practice and reach my goals faster! Whether you're at a beginner, intermediate, or advanced level, Robert will meet you at the level you are at and train you to become better!

About Janos
I am a professional saxophonist actively performing and teaching in the Chicago area. I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in saxophone performance from University of the Pacific and my master’s degree in saxophone performance from Northwestern University. With over 9 years of experience teaching saxophone privately, I am comfortable teaching students of all ages and experience levels.

As a teacher, my primary goal is to foster a genuine love and appreciation for music in all of my students. Students who come to me for lessons can expect an appropriately challenging, but fun and rewarding experience that encourages a balance of repertoire study, listening to recordings of great masters, and appropriate growth in music fundamentals. Every student will have unique challenges and learning styles, which is why I make it a priority to get
to know each of my students on both a musical and personal level. Having studied music for many years, I understand the importance of having a teacher that is not only a great instructor, but also an equally great mentor that will help the student achieve their musical and professional goals.

Through solo and chamber performances, I maintain an active performing career playing around Chicago and touring all over the country. I am currently the baritone saxophonist and Director of Finance for the award-winning saxophone quartet ~Nois, which has quickly emerged as one of the premier young ensembles dedicated to the promotion of contemporary music. As a soloist, I have performed recitals and taught master classes at universities in California, Tennessee, and Ohio. I also won the grand prizes for both the Auburn Symphony Young Artist Competition and the University of the Pacific Concerto Competition.

In order to adapt to the unique needs of each student, I am comfortable teaching a wide range of styles including classical, contemporary, and jazz music. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you to become the musician you want to be!

About Brendan
Brendan has been living in Chicago since 2014, and graduated from DePaul University with a Bachelor's degree in Classical Trumpet Performance in 2017. During his time at DePaul, Brendan played in nearly every major ensemble at one point or another, including the renowned DePaul Symphony Orchestra and DePaul Jazz Ensemble.

Since graduating from DePaul, Brendan is now one of a handful of working trumpet players in the Chicago area. He performs regularly with Four Star Brass Band, a New Orleans-style brass band with a Chicago twist, and funk group Get Up With The Get Downs. Recently, he has played with these bands at House of Blues, Martyrs', Reggies', and The Green Mill. He has also played in other brass bands like Hi Hat Second Line and Patriot Brass, and has played gigs with professional big bands Big Band Boom and Heisenberg Uncerta
inty Players. He is also the resident trumpeter at St. Luke Evangelical Church in Lakeview.

Brendan has performed the national anthem at multiple DePaul sporting events, and was featured as a soloist in many ensembles within the School of Music.

--

As a teacher, I believe that the best approach is a naturalistic one. I like to let students discover things that interest them on their own while guiding them in the right direction by ensuring the use of good fundamentals. When a student is enjoying what they are working on in a lesson is when they are most attentive and absorbent of information. Therefore, if a student seems to respond more to a specific kind of music, teaching method, etc., I will likely incorporate that into my lesson as much as possible. I want my lessons to be fun and enjoyable while at the same time setting students on a path for success in music or whatever discipline they may pursue!

I am a professional opera singer and teacher currently working in the Chicago area. I have my Bachelor of Fine Arts (Voice) from Carnegie Mellon University and my Master of Music (Voice) from Roosevelt University (CCPA).

Our first lesson together will be exploratory. We will work together to establish goals and the steps needed to get there. I believe it is important to not only identify what needs work, but what your strengths are as well.

From there, we can work on sight reading, rhythm work, breath control, and other building blocks to create a solid vocal foundation. I am more than happy to help you learn songs that are brought in, but I will recommend some as well. While I do specialize in opera and classical, we can work on Musical Theatre, Jazz, Pop, Country, etc. Good technique is good technique no matter what the genre!
