Besides teaching voice, I have an extensive expertise in instructing piano, music theory and ear training.

I work with a variety of domestic and international talents, composers, musicians and bands, and help them to further their projects to the new heights.

I also teach beginning piano for children and adults. If you are looking to advance your musicality while studying voice, or to introduce your child to both beginning piano and voice, I highly recommend this approach. I customize lessons to accommodate the age and ability of the student, and teach the basics of piano technique, reading music and other aspects of beginning music theory.

About Wendy
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 10 years I was the lead singer for The Red Apples, an acoustic/electric roots band that performed an eclectic mix of rock, swing, blues, country and jazz. Within the past year I have re-energized my theater and cabaret career, appearing at Davenport's Cabaret, in a new solo show, as well as productions at Big Noise Theater and Stage 773. I've also completed tw
o short films and started working on my own web series, about my life as a singer/voice teacher. I also have an art song project consisting of original material with composer Jaroslaw Golembiowski. As a singer and actress I have performed with many major theaters in the Chicago area, including Court Theater, Victory Gardens, National Jewish Theater, Bailiwick Theater, and Prop Theater.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a classically trained singer I will instruct you in all aspects of singing technique, from breath control and support to improving your tone, range, flexibility and resonance. I have recently completed training in Somatic Voicework, The LoVetri Method, which has enriched my understanding of the mechanics and health of the voice, as well as applications of technique to CCM or contemporary musical styles of singing.
My familiarity with a variety of musical styles from pop/rock, R&B, and country, to musical theater, lounge and jazz makes me an ideal teacher for those interested in contemporary styles.

I have spent many years developing my own style of singing and instruction. I draw on my experiences and training not only in music, but theater and movement, (Linklater, Alexander Technique, Grotowski) to create a well rounded approach to singing and performing. As an instructor, I am most interested in helping students find their true voice and artistic style. I teach students to find expression through and with a foundation of technique, rather then in spite of it. I also am very interested in helping students deal with the mental/emotional aspects of performance, an all important area so frequently ignored by music teachers. My style is nurturing, yet disciplined, and sprinkled liberally with good-natured humor."

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio space is fully equipped with a piano, P.A. system with microphones, CD, MP3 player for tracks, and ability to record lessons if the student desires.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Please have a piano (in tune!) or keyboard for use in your in home lessons.

*** Specialties ***
I am classically trained, but I am very adept at teaching music in a wide variety of styles, including most contemporary styles of music including pop/rock, roots, swing, jazz and blues, country, r&b, and of course musical theater and cabaret. My band performs an eclectic mix of originals and covers in the roots rock genre, and I write music as well. I have many years of experience in the theater as an actress, and I coach acting technique and performance. I coach singer/songwriters, and all types of singers, of all ages. I have a workshop that specializes in helping people learn to perform better in front of an audience, and I host the Singer's Salon in Chicago, which is a supportive opportunity to perform regularly! I also coach bands, to improve their vocals, harmonies, etc.

About Loretta M.

Piano lessons definitely involve theory, but are structured around the genre of music set by the student's goals. Music theory is taught around a repertoire that the student builds throughout the piano program so that they build a portfolio from which they can pay. Then performance ad versatility become the second focus.

About Loretta
I have always been fascinated with how music is created and who works behind the scenes of performances and recordings. I started playing the flute in elementary school, piano in junior high school, and singing in high school. Once I got to UMASS, Dartmouth I chose the Music option for my major. I then moved on to NYU. I have been teaching for over ten years now. Working with students both in person and online has been amazing. With online lessons I am able to work with students who love the convenience of being at home and in person I can show students what it is like to really grow! I love my students of all ages, and can only hope to show others how amazing music can be. I have worked with a handful of students with special needs and am comfortable teaching in a non-traditional style. I am currently preparing to complete my certificat
ion in music therapy. Those who can do teach, and those who can teach totally do!

*** Lesson Details ***
You will set the pace for your lesson. I want you to enjoy your time in music, so your lessons will be completely customized. We will develop a goal plan for you so that our time together is interesting, fun, and we make progress! In 3-6 months, you will have a stable technical program and have started a portfolio of music for performances, no matter what level you are. We can share sheet music in person or online (I can even email you great links to amazing performances). Just let me know where you want to be in music, and we'll work together to make it happen. I can't wait to meet you!

*** Studio Equipment ***
First - YOU MUST HAVE YOUR OWN INSTRUMENT FOR PRACTICE AT HOME BEFORE BEGINNING LESSONS!!! Consistency is very important for learning, and weekly lessons ARE NOT enough for growth. My home studio is in a private music room. Parents can relax in our family space with coffee or tea and enjoy their children's learning at their leisure. My studio includes a 88-key keyboard, technology setup with an iMac, microphone and stand, a mirror for posture and musical instruments. I carry books for the lessons themselves (not for practice at home), and we can download or print out music as desired. If you take lessons online, I can email you links and sheet music as needed. Feel free to bring any additional equipment music you would like to share. I have some great recommendations for music books designed for both children and adult learners.

About Sarah P.

Plainfield, IL

View Full Profile

Experienced piano teacher of 10 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of music theory, sight reading, technique, and stylistic skills. I specialize in classical and accompaniment, Faber Piano Adventures piano series and a wide array of repertoire books, and also have the following tools available to use during lessons: piano, extensive musical library, iPad with YouTube and numerous other musical apps, quarterly group lessons, bi-annual recitals.

About Sarah
Classically trained pianist and singer. When it comes to piano, I have over 20 years of training under my belt. Majority of my experience deals with classical and accompaniment but have also studied jazz and contemporary.
In the way of singing, I am a classically trained singer who majored in Opera Performance in college. I have plenty of performance experience from being on the stage in operas and musical to performing with choirs and solo recitals. In voice lessons a student can choose to specialize in opera or if they were to take standard voice lessons, they could expect a wide variety of music focusing on multiple languages and genres including musical theater.

With every musician, Music Theory is crucial. All students will learn the basics of reading music and those who choose, can go beyond to learn the structure of music a
nd why music is the way it is with Music Theory lessons.

I am qualified to teach all levels of piano, opera, and voice.I take a real hands on, active approach to teaching, going beyond just the lesson books.

I am also able to offer tutoring services. I have been tutoring since high school. In high school as part of the National Honors Society, we were asked to tutor once a week and it continued into college when I decided to double major in Psychology taking an interest in adolescence psychology. My strong suits and reading and math but I am more than happy to help in any subject.

I do have dogs in the house so please be advised if you have allergies.

*** Lesson Details ***
Our sessions will be laid back and easy going. I expect the students to do their work and practice and as long as they are showing progress, we can continue with a fun and relaxed atmosphere. I am patient with my students, and do my best to develop teaching methods unique to each student to give the best experience and set them up for the highest level of success. I don't push students to perfection but rather assist them in reaching their personal best. As long as they are having fun and learning, I know I am doing my job. Music is to be enjoyed and that is my goal with each student.

For voice and piano, students will learn a wide variety of music. I also believe strongly in the power of sight reading. Students will also learn music theory in their lessons. Piano students will follow a lesson book curriculum along with learning scales and sight reading. Voice students will sing from all major languages (English, French, Italian, and German) and practice sight reading skills.

Students should bring a notebook to lessons where notes will be taken on what we accomplished in our lessons and what needs to be worked on for the next lesson. This will usually include a theory sheet, technique work, and songs.

Twice a year I hold a recital where students get to show off to other students and family what they have accomplished in their lessons. With piano students, you will prepare and memorize usually one song. For voice students, you will prepare and memorize two songs, at least one will be in a foreign language.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lower level for studio, piano, seating for parents, on site computer for easy reference and music samples.

I have an Opera performance degree. I am a classically trained singer and pianist.

Whether its a few chords or an intricate accompaniment, piano is an important part of any band or ensemble. I can teach you different techniques and styles to compliment any song.

About Claire
My name is Claire and I have been making a living as a touring/gigging musician for the last eight years. I studied music performance and production at Columbia College Chicago. I have played in a variety of styles, both solo and as part of a band. I currently tour with my band, The Lucky Dutch on keys and vocals. My students start their journey learning music of their choice, sparking interest and enthusiasm from the very first lesson. My motto is "Relentless Positivity" and it shows in my lessons. There is never a consequence for a wrong answer or misplaced note and the worst thing that can happen is we play it again. We will work together to navigate this inspiring and often humbling path.

A word on cancellations: consistency is the most important aspect of music education. With that in mind, I need to maintain a strict scheduling p
olicy for canceled or missed lessons. While I will try to accommodate illnesses and emergencies, I do ask for 24 hour advanced notice when canceling.
I will have to charge full lesson price for late cancellations and no shows.
Thank you!

I love working with students of all ages, and I can't wait to meet you!

About Kristiana
Born in Greece and raised in Albania, I started piano lessons with my mother when i was three, and formal lessons at age six at the Epirotic Conservatory of Ioannina, (Greece) with Aspasia Zerva (and with my mother as well). With the support of the Tsakalof Institute, I had my first recital with an orchestra at the age of 12 with the Symphonic Orchestra of Albanian Radio – Television (Kabalevsky Piano Concerto No. 3 in D major, Op. 50). In 2012 I received a Diploma in Piano at the Epirotic Conservatory of Ioannina. I completed my undergraduate studies in Musicology at University of Arts in Tirana, Albania, with Dr. Holta Sina and piano with Prof. Nora Cashku. During these years I taught piano at Tsakalof Institute. I have participated in many activities and competitions in Albania and Greece. Also, I have an interest in foreign languag

Ms. Kristiana brings our family the joy of playing and practicing piano. Both my 5 year old daughter and I are her students. Ms. Kristiana knows how to motivate young piano players as well as accommodate and respect and help adult players trying to pick up piano again. As for kids, she is extremely patient, kind, open minded and fun. She made my daughter feel comfortable from the trial lesson and their teacher-student dynamic improves with each lesson.

Starting piano lessons as an elementary school student, I studied for 13 years. Since then, my piano skills have gotten rusty, but Ms. Kristiana has helped me start back up again. She came up with a plan with a practice book and a piece book that I can enjoy, and she also helped me learn the piece I had been longing to learn. Maybe that piece is above my level at this point, but she patiently guided me to go through it and now I am half way to mastering it.

We are glad to have met her and to be under her guidance.

I have been teaching children for 32 years, as an elementary school teacher and for the past 2 years as a personal tutor. While working as a tutor a number of parents asked me, "Do you teach piano too?" and while certainly I had worked with music as part of the curriculum, subbing for music teachers frequently, I hadn't taught piano since maternity leave, when I taught six students in my home. I have been really encouraged by how well and quickly my present students have learned and by how they respond to the solid background in theory I had, as a music student myself for many years, in Europe. Frequently parents told me the students were seeking a different approach from their previous teacher and in all cases the students have done well. Occasionally I found their previous teachers had them on books that were too advanced, that the students were not even reading the music and didn't know what or where the notes were. I prescribed a new book and worked carefully with them so ...

About Emily
Dear Student,
I am looking forward to meeting you and beginning piano lessons with you, whether you are a beginner, or have already been playing for a couple of years. I hope very much that you will find a lot of joy in playing as, week by week, you progress.
Music is a beautiful, bright and hopeful thing. As your playing improves you will gain confidence. You will also gain a very solid background in theory, keys, scales, major and minor, arpeggios, chord progressions. Perhaps alongside the piano you will learn or are learning another instrument, or you will join the school choir or the school band. There is just so much out there. I want your skills in piano to improve, but I also want you to take part in the world of music that is out there and for it to stay with you your whole life.
Living in Chicago you will have much opportu
nity to experience this world. So let's begin this Fall.
Your teacher,
Ms Emily.
