About a year ago, actually 13 months, I began voice training with Daniel Kotval. This is not my first go-round with voice training.
That was many years ago. In the interim, Iâve done plenty of singing â mostly for my own entertainment â but thereâs been little improvement in the quality of my voice. Iâm not certain what it was that made me suddenly decide it was time to work with a professional voice coach but decide, I did.
Once Iâd discovered TakeLessons.com (the top result of my Google search for voice lessons in my zip code), Daniel was the obvious choice. We share Columbia College Chicago as an alma mater, and when I saw that heâd been on the faculty that was all the credentials I needed to seeâ¦and I was not wrong.
In addition to teaching the mechanics of proper breathing, posture and of course singing, Daniel places strong emphasis on music theory. Youâd be amazed at how helpful it is to understand the theories behind everything; it makes all the knowledge crystalize so much faster!
As a teacher, Daniel is endlessly patient and supportive, always inspiring me to push ahead even when I feel frustrated. His teaching techniques work well for any student of any age at any level of experience, from rank beginner to accomplished professional, and voice training is not all that Daniel does. He teaches piano, guitar and bass, percussion and brass, and much more. A few months ago, we added piano to my curriculum. Iâve learned more from him in one year than I learned from five instructors over a period of many years, combined.
So far as Iâm concerned itâs a winning combination: voice, piano, music theory, and Maestro Daniel Kotval."
I'm a professional singer and I know the importance of maintaining my "instrument" I take lessons with Wendy to help keep my voice heal
I take private lessons and I also enjoy her student workshops. Wendy provides a safe and open environment for singers to work on material, performance ability and vocal skills. I always have fun, learn something new, make new friends and all at a reasonable price! Whether you are a beginner or a professional you will enjoy the time spent with Wendy and you will walk out the door a better singer and performer than when you walked in!"
