About Molly
I have been teaching for 15 years: kids, teens-even beginner vocalists in their seventies! Rockers, an "Idol" finalist, church musicians, lapsed opera singers, preschoolers. ...these are just a few of singers I have worked with, in person, in the classroom, and ONLINE (I just love teaching singers all over the country and the world!) .

What you get in voice lessons with me: laughter as you learn! I have learned solid classical vocal technique from the very best . I have trained with respected opera singers who have performed with companies such as Lyric Opera of Chicago, as well as leader
s in vocal pedagogy. I believe everyone deserves the same useful tools- no matter what it is you like to sing!

I am patient and customize each and every lesson. Need more time on ear training? No problem . How about beginning music theory? I can help with that,too. Are you feeling more confident, and want to focus more on song polishing and getting into the heart of your songs? Let's do it! Confidence an issue? I am a pro with very shy people. I'll get you out of your shell, relaxed, and having fun right away so we can free that voice of yours! I have worked with many singers who have been diagnosed with anxiety: you're in good hands and you can trust me with your voice.

I am also a drama teacher who has worked with groups as well as individuals. Currently, I am the drama instructor at a Montessori School. I love working with beginning acting students! I'll assist with monologue prep, improvisation, voice for the stage, body awareness, and more. I love being on stage and want you to see how fun it is to jump in and let go,too!

If you're interested in beginner ear training or music theory, I'd love to help you with that as well. I present it in a no-nonsense and fun manner! I'll provide you with simple worksheets to increase your confidence in learning the language of music, as well as run you through increasingly challenging patterns and sight reading for the ear training. Don't be afraid: I make it easy and customize it all.

I have been singing for over 20 years. Performances with the Lira Ensemble and Opera on Tap Chicago, and in master classes with international opera stars Alan Held and Lorna Haywood. Coaching with Collaborative Works Chicago and Rossini Opera Festival. Additional studies in Rock Vocals, Voice Care, Improvisational Comedy, Holistic Voice, Acting, Foreign languages, Dalcroze, Speaking Voice for Singers, , Commercial Vocal Styles/Belting with Lisa Popeil, teacher mentoring workshop with Maestro David Jones. Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance. Additional workshops in Vocal Pedagogy with David Sabella-Mills, Jeannie LoVetri. Dr. Karen Prokop, Melissa Cross the queen of healthy scream technique!), Sheri Sanders (musical theatre auditioning), and Chicago Cabaret Professionals.

Certified CoreSinging Instructor- one of only a few in the U.S. trained by Meribeth Dayme, PhD, respected clinician and authority in vocal pedagogy and author of "The Singing Book".

My students do a variety of great things! One was a top 12 "American Idol" finalist. Current students perform in musicals, top rated choirs, and professional rock , jazz,and blues bands. Many have won awards for their singing at competitions such as NATS. Students of mine have also been accepted to prestigious performing arts high schools for both drama and music, as well as undergraduate music programs.

I think if you can speak, you can sing. Everyone can and should sing! Don't let anything hold you back. I am a people person that is very passionate about music and singing, and want to be the teacher you'll trust with your voice. Come laugh and learn with me!

May 2017: I paid for 5 classes, and we've had about 4 or 5 by now. I have to say I LOVE Molly! She's great with my daughter. My 13 yo daughter has a learning delay, which is not noticeable to many, but it takes a longer to learn something that's natural for most kids. Molly is able to make her lessons relatable. We do the one hour classes and she has my daughter doing the vocal exercises during the first half an hour, and the second half an hour she's working on her song that she's learning for her "talent" portion in a pageant for Nov 2017. I'm pretty particular about teachers/instructors and I have to say I've gotten every dollars worth. We plan on signing up for more lessons because the difference in her singing from the start to now, on her song that she's working on, is noticeable! Impressive!!

About Rafeh
There is no such thing as talent. You simply need love and passion for what you want to achieve. My main focus is to get you excited about learning new things!

I am a professional software and web developer who is a chess expert and competes in table tennis tournaments on the weekends! There are many things I love doing but I am most passionate about meeting new people and getting them excited about learning new skills. I love waiting patiently and experiencing that moment with my student where they have their "aha" moment!

I have mastered skills in many different fields. My best skill i
s my ability to clearly communicate my ideas with the student and help guide them through their problems patiently. I have been coaching most of my subjects for over 6+ years now.

Whether your goal is to improve academically by getting A's in your classes, land that perfect job, or improve in sports, I am able to help you in your academic, professional, and athletic pursuits.

Qazi is a serious tutor; I like that about him. He is also very intelligent. What I like about Qazi is that he balances the simple and the complex very skillfully. We reviewed terminal commands and started with Python. He knows his stuff but he doesn't brag. He lets the results speak for themselves. I am proud to be his student.

As a complete beginner in computer programming I had no idea where to start. Rafeh was able to help me gain a better understanding of the numerous languages and point me in the right direction. Awesome teacher and nice guy.

I have been working with Rafeh for 6 months and the results are far better than I could have imagined. When I started, I was a total programming novice. I began an online Coursera class in R programming and Rafeh’s help was the only way I could have completed it. He is a flexible and patient teacher. I found that he was committed to my full understanding of foundational concepts. He was not merely concerned with getting the answers right and getting through the class. Together, he guided me through several online courses using both Python and R. He has given me enough of a programming base to be accepted into a master’s program for analytics. This wouldn’t have been possible without his help.

Rafeh is a pleasure to work with. He has a friendly demeanor and is flexible with his scheduling. He is very knowledgeable in computer science, yet is able to explain to a total beginner. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

About Randy
I have a Masters degree in Theatre History and Criticism (Theatrical Critical Theory). I have teaching experience and have been exposed to many different types of teaching styles and locales, (i.e. classroom, studio).I have a Bachelors degree in Fine Arts with a focus on acting, Academia.com holds some of my work and I can certainly offer more.
I have always been an actor first, simultaneously I have believed that teacher's are born not bred. At the risk of tooting my own horn; I am both, an actor and a teacher with more than a few credentials to support those facts. Peace and Kind Regard

Kay is the kindest and best voice teacher I have ever had! Not only does she train you in proven and highly skilled breathing techniques, but she also improves the quality, tone & stamina of your voice. It's life-changing! Her techniques really work! And she truly cares about each one of her students, young or old. If you're skilled & looking for a new voice teacher or just to try lessons for the first time, I whole-heartedly recommend Kay!

I took lessons with Maji for over a year and I was amazed at how much progress I was able to make. Her instruction helped me go from being barely able to do the basic step for On 2 to working on my double turn. She offers a calm, low pressure teaching environment which helped me excel. I highly recommend her as an instructor whether you are a beginner like me or an experienced dancer!!
