I have been teaching Opera voice since I graduated from Roosevelt and it's been a long and fun journey. I am always happy to coach classical repertoire as it has a special place in my heart. I even used to run an Opera on Tap, a monthly event for young talented singers and also have some great connections in Chicago classical music scene.

Private Opera Voice Teacher

Opera is such a beautiful genre that I love to sing! As with any student you learn all vocal techniques. Attention to detail is what sets this genre apart so we explore challenging concepts and tools to really help your instrument reach it's fullest potential. We cannot stop at just a good vocal sound however, the full performance is explored from musical tools to acting through the song and staging/gestures.

Mr. Snow has been an excellent teacher. He's very personable, knowledgeable, and listens closely.

Throughout my time as his student he's kept challenging me by progressively raising his expectations as my ability improves. In this way I get to perpetually make small improvements without being overwhelmed.

He also keeps in communication after hours so we can be more fully prepared for our next meeting, usually by finding or modifying the score to a song of my choosing. Because of this I get the feeling that he is invested in my improvement as well.

Mr. Snow is specifically an expert on the voice, and he has studied and performed singing at high levels. He is also an able musician, and his knowledge of music theory has helped shape my studies.

He's very good at communicating his teachings, and I'm usually able to make the adjustments he requested immediately.

After every lesson I feel that I've gained some ability, and I believe I will continue to improve my singing as long as he is my teacher. He has always been courteous and professional, and I enjoy my lessons with him.

My daughter has expressed a love for music and singing from a very early age. As a parent, I thought she had a beautiful voice and that was confirmed by a good friend of mine who recommended me to Steven. I started Olivia with Steven when she was 9 years old. Through his instruction and guidance her voice has grown tremendously. She was awarded a major role as a 5th grader in her school play and then went on to be the lead as a 6th and 7th grader. She was the youngest student in the history of the school to earn a lead role.

Olivia also auditioned for the Paper Mill Playhouse Summer Conservatory and was accepted for their August Intensive program. I have no doubt that it was Steven's teaching that helped her with her audition that gained her acceptance.

Olivia is now 12 and as a young person, needs to learn how to interpret a song so that she can perform it well. Steven takes the time to teach the MEANING of the words and explains the story that is trying to be told. This was very important for Olivia to learn.

I highly recommend working with Steven. He is a fabulous teacher with a lot of knowledge and insight.

Private Opera Voice Teacher

My goal as a voice teacher is to create a positive environment in my studio where my students can reach all of the goals that they set out to achieve.  It is important for my students to feel a warm, welcoming atmosphere, where they can make mistakes, take risks, and ask questions. The art of singing is a whole-body experience and it is essential for students to train and practice like an athlete would train for a high-level event.  I encourage my students to do some sort of physical activity that has an emphasis on the abdominal muscles (i.e. yoga, pilates, tai chi, weight routine), so that they feel what it is like to use the whole body as well as strengthen their core muscles. This directly relates to an appoggio based breath support, which is the technique I utilize in my own singing and in my studio.  I teach my students to use their entire body when they sing. I believe that students should practice physicality with gestures, so they can get connected to their whole body and ...

Jamie is patient, encouraging, and helps you learn detailed techniques to make your voice sound better, as well as have lasting notes.
Daeon
Jamie is a natural teacher of her craft! Her ability to quickly assess and adapt lessons to my daughters’ personalities and preferences of music, as well as her incredibly positive and encouraging demeanor, has made taking voice lessons a great learning experience for both of them. She is very dedicated to finding ways that work for each student to understand how to use their voice and find their breath, and even given the current circumstances of having lessons via FaceTime because of social distancing, the quality and level of expertise of her lessons have not faltered in the least. We are fans!
Marie
Jamie's approachable and friendly personality is reflected in her teaching style - she is not afraid to have you try various unconventional techniques that turn out to be super effective and fun! In the year I've been taking lessons with her, my breath support, technique, and vocal range have all improved significantly - so much so that a high note that I found strenuous a year ago is now almost within my comfort range! She is very receptive to different styles of music, and her suggestions are always challenging, fun, and geared towards developing your voice.

I really enjoyed my private vocal classes with Kylie. She is extremely kind and patient in teaching and always gives me useful feedback. I love how she keeps encouraging me during the lessons so that I became more and more confident in singing. She also teaches various kinds of songs which are very interesting to learn.

Amazed at the quality of instruction from an online lesson!! My children have taken voice lessons from several wonderful teachers but Kylie is by far the best. She is a gifted singer and teacher. After just one lesson my children were progressing and excited to practice and meet with Kylie again. The convenience and caliber of the online lesson can't be beat. Definitely highly recommend!!
Melanie
I wasn't sure how effective online singing lessons would be but after one lesson I was amazed at how much I learned! Kylie's understanding of the voice and the mechanics behind good singing helps her to quickly know what her students need to do differently and she explains it in a way that is easy to understand. Gifted singer and gifted teacher. Definitely highly recommend!!

Desiree Soteres is the perfect vocal teacher for students of all ages. She is has an excellent performance, as well as academic, background. She is patient and knows how to draw the best out of her students.

Desiree's studio is as fine as any you could possibly find in the most professional of settings and far exceeded my expectations. In addition to this, the location is VERY safe and has easy access to public transportation. Parking is also easily found on its quiet, tree-lined street.

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 …
