Josefien is a great instructor. She spent the first couple of sessions trying to guage my voice and work style. She is a pleasure to work with and has improved my singing greatly.

I've had over 8 years of experience teaching people of all ages in Canada and here in the United States, I have become an expert at being punctual and having patience towards each person's way of learning. I have developed different strategies and problem solving in the event of a conflict, and to always have a positive outlook on a situation while encouraging the students to reach and achieve their goals. During our time together I would help you with proper breathing technique and vocal placement! We would explore all different genres of music to help broaden your voice stylistically.

Beyond my teaching experience, I believe I am a good fit for you because I would bring enthusiasm and a great dynamic energy to your team, along with great communication skills that I’ve garnered from my previous jobs.

Training includes: Royal Conservatory of Music Grades 1-8, Piano Grade 6, Music Theory Grades 1 and 2 with First Class Honours and Distinction.

Hi! My name is Michael Day and I have been teaching voice lessons and singing professionally for about 7 years now. I use a wholistic method (using breath techniques and the natural speaking voice) to liberate students' unique and special vocal qualities, and have learned how to train singers to sing in any genre, from classical and opera to broadway, pop and jazz. Send me a message and let's talk!!

I am a professional singer, pianist and voice teacher based in northern Illinois. I attended the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music where I earned a bachelor's degree in music education as well as bachelor's and master's degrees in vocal performance. Since graduating from IU, I have sung a

Michael has an eclectic and holistic approach to vocal lessons. He's humbling, approachable for a complete beginner like myself, and intuitive about making the needed adjustments in lessons. His feedback is incredibly constructive and helpful. His teaching style fits very well with my learning and I can honestly say these lessons are some of the best parts of my week. I'm learning more than just vocal lessons, I'm learning more about how I tell a story through singing. I cannot say enough positive things about Michael! I would 100% recommend lessons with him!

Every student is a unique person who deserves a lesson customized to their individual needs. Each of my students prospers in an atmosphere of patience and encouragement. While the lessons are fun and enjoyable, the serious student will be supported in the development of skills leading to a rewarding career. And the more casual students will grow in an appreciation of music that will always enrich their lives.

I begin each voice lesson with a warm-up to prepare the student for their session. Next, we do a series of exercises specially designed to help each individual develop their skill in a way that best fits them. We then work on a piece of their choice for the remainder of the lesson, perfecting their technique and helping them become performance ready. I teach with patience and fun because I feel that this is the key to achieving goals and inspiring a good habit of practice.

Music lessons are all about expression, education, and creativity. During our vocal lessons, we will explore techniques from basics to advanced. Whether you are interested in becoming a better singer or performer in classical, opera, theater, jazz, blues, pop, or rock, you have come to the right person! I have experience performing live on stage in front of smaller audiences as well as thousands and will help you gain the confidence and tools necessary to take your experience to the next level!

Music theory will create a wonderful foundation that will help you as a student further your knowledge and ability to continue in your vocal training and basic musicianship. I am excited to begin or continue with you on your musical journey. Let's start making music today!

Great teacher I have two granddaughters that wanted to learn to play our family piano. Ashley has been great keeping these two (5yr old and 9yr old) interested and enjoying what they are learning. Could not have had a better experience or teacher. Having Ashley as a teacher has made all of us enjoy music in our home again!!

"I am so thankful for Maria. Coming out of college I didn't quite know what to do. I began taking lessons with Maria based on a referral but honestly wasn't expecting much. I will always feel horrible about that because she is the best thing that could have happened to me. I've grown more in the past two years than I did for the 5 years in undergrad. I've been offered a full ride to University of Houston next year but I will continue to sing her praises and work with her whenever I am back in town. I'm dreading that our last lesson is approaching because I couldn't have gotten where I am without her."

"Ahdda Shur has great breadth of singing and teaching experience; in Opera, Broadway, and classical styles, as well as liturgical chant. Ahdda will guide you in sensitive instruction in the breath, tone production, vowel placement, pronunciation, posture, and stage presence. You will be delighted and transformed working with Ahdda. Her calm sense of wellbeing, and attention to details you had not even considered, will enable you to sing with greater ease and confidence. Singing for Ahdda is fun, and relaxing. She can tell very quickly what needs to happen to improve your voice. I recommend Ahdda to you with confidence that she will transform your voice through proper technique, stage presence, and correct repertoire choices for your voice. Enjoy freedom of production, and increase your confidence on stage, with Ahdda Shur."

I took lessons with Stacey during my senior year of high school. Studying voice with her improved not only my overall musicianship, but my confidence in what I specifically had to offer as a musician. Stacey helped prepare me for my college voice auditions. So, if you're looking for a teacher who is extremely talented, personable, and will push you to succeed, I highly recommend studying with Stacey."

8 Beautiful Opera Arias for Beginner Singers

It is always exciting when a vocal student is ready to start studying his or her first operatic aria! One of the best things about being a classical singer is knowing you have so many great years ahead of you. After all, you’re considered in your prime in your 40s. That being said, realize that the voice you have now and the repertoire you’ll first study will be very, very different from what you sing later on in your career. It’s absolutely crucial that you sing repertoire that is …
