A greater emphasis placed on breath control, diction, and vocal production on all aspects of operatic performance.

About Farobag
Music Director of the Chicago Philharmonia Orchestra since 1985, Farobag has also served as Managing Director of the University of Chicago Performing Artists Series from 1989 through 2002 and principal conductor of its resident professional ensembles. A skilled interpreter of Baroque literature as well, Farobag continues in his capacity as Artistic Advisor to the Baroque Masterplayers, a virtuoso ensemble that concatenates period performance techniques with modern instruments thus creating a unique voice within the realm of 17th and 18th- century repertoire.

A double graduate of the Eastman School of Music and the University of Rochester, Farobag studied under Anastasia Jempelis, a pioneer of Suzuki violin pedagogy in the United States. In addition to the Suzuki curriculum, he is also associated with the Royal Conservatory Music Devel
opment Program that sets a national standard of musical achievement in various fields.

Befitting his penchant for encouraging artistic interest amongst younger members of his community, Farobag is also the principal conductor of the Zoroastrian Symphony Orchestra that offers a unique mixture of young and seasoned professionals sitting side-by-side in a strictly professional setting. Since the year 2000, the ZSO has staged highly successful performances at various venues in Houston, Chicago, and Toronto. A New Year's eve performance in Los Angeles is scheduled for 2014.

Having also taken graduate-level coursework in educational psychology, mathematics, and philosophy at the University of Chicago, Farobag offers tutelage in various areas of elementary and secondary education as well as in SAT, ACT and GRE test preparation.

Additionally, as a certified Reiki Master, therapeutic and/or educational sessions are also extended to those who may be inclined to alternative healing techniques.

*** Lesson Details ***
Sheer technique is necessary but insufficient to play an instrument well. Aural skills, that include the study of functional tonality and voice-leading are important factors that impart musicality. This is of great import if the prospective musician wants the audience to truly enjoy his or her performance !

Whether it be the 3 Rs or preparation in the performing arts, a remarkable instructor must go well beyond the subject matter at hand and help imbue the student with a spirit of wonder that, in due time, will foster enthusiasm necessary for excellence.

A child emulates and learns to communicate in his or her mother-tongue through a supporting and nurturing environment. Likewise, a student needs to be sufficiently motivated to embrace learning in a familiar supportive manner.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lesson take place in the living room. Driveway parking. No pets.

*** Travel Equipment ***
None; I do expect a reasonably good piano / keyboard at a student's home.

*** Specialties ***
Traditional and Suzuki-based education. Performance and musicality training is open to all instrumentalists.

*** CD's***

Mr. cooper gives the gift of music, the learning of, the pure appreciation for the violin and its beautiful sound. I am a student who has loved this string instrument for many years and am fortunate to now have Farobag Homi Cooper as my teacher. He is guiding me to a higher level of playing then I thought I was capable of.

I've been playing a few instruments for 23 years, and finally decided to get into violin. Farobag made me realize that I know next to nothing about the violin, and there is so much to learn. I played only a few notes in my first lesson, but his instruction was worth every penny. I am very excited for the next lesson and look forward to learning everything I can from Farobag. Highly recommended.

Roberta is amazing! I went to her for a little more than 3 years for voice (and piano for a little bit) and she is very helpful, skilled, friendly, knowledgable, and fun. She helped me get into my top choice college as a choral music major with a full tuition scholarship and supported me the entire way. Roberta knows how to work with any voice with any level of experience of any age. Not only is Robera a fantastic teacher; she is also very understanding and a great person to talk to. I would highly recommend her to any student in the area.

I have been teaching all levels of voice for over 15 years with emphases on Breathing, Posture, Vocal Production, Sight Singing, Diction using the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA), and Performance Techniques. I also teach fundamental piano with emphases on the Musical Alphabet, Hand Position and Finger Numbers, Rhythm in Music, Beginning Music Theory, Scales, and Performance Techniques. My purpose for teaching voice and piano is to fulfill the need for quality performing arts instruction. My goal is to train and assist artists in the development of their instruments through individual instruction, practice, and performance.

About Annie
I am a professional singer, songwriter, voice and piano teacher, and guest soloist at the Historic First Congregational Church of Detroit. I have a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music, where I studied voice with Robert Powell and Helen Laird, and I was mentored by Maestro Max Rudolph, conductor of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, with whom I made my professional singing debut in Beethoven's Ninth Symphony as the lead soprano. I was awarded the Bertha Bauer Full Four-Year Scholarship and the John A. Hoffman Award for highest GPA in Voice. I won the Martha Baird Rockefeller Music Fund Award and the Jean Tennyson Music Award for outstanding accomplishments in music. I was guest soloist with the Washington National Symphony in Baltimore, the New York Youth Symphony, the
Rochester Symphony, and the Cincinnati Music Festival. I also represented the United States in the International Competitions in Montreal, and I was a finalist in the coveted Metropolitan Opera auditions in New York. I was contracted with the Deutsche Oper am Rhein (the German Opera on the Rhine Company), where I was the leading young dramatic soprano, and I toured with the company seven years.

I received my Master of Music in Vocal Performance from Wayne State University College of Fine, Performing and Communication Arts, where I performed various opera roles and studied Vocal Pedagogy. I was guest soprano with the Rackham Symphony Orchestra and Friends of the Opera in Dearborn, the Menc conference, and the Kerrytown Concert House in Ann Arbor. I was also artistic director of the Arts Center Music School in Detroit where I taught all levels of voice and fundamental piano. One of my voice students is enrolled in a major music school in New York, another is a songwriter and recording artist in Detroit, and another recently auditioned and was accepted into the Mosaic Youth Theater in Detroit.

In addition to guest solo appearances, I currently have two works in progress, including, a monolog with my original composition, and a demo for a new CD featuring my original compositions.

I am studying to become a professional classical singer. Through my own training, I have discovered that having an amazing teacher – one who is supportive, caring, and hard working, and who will push you and work with you to be better – is the most important tool an aspiring musician can have. I believe that every student is different, as no person's body is the same, and no vocal instrument is the same. Based on my performance in the Teaching of Singing course at Oberlin Conservatory of Music, I was selected to be a voice teacher to non-Conservatory students at Oberlin College. I have now had several students, two of whom, with my assistance, have just been accepted to prestigious summer programs in classical voice. Though I have only been teaching voice to others for a year now, I have been teaching myself alongside my own teachers through practice and independent work for the past nine years, and I have discovered countless techniques and tricks to help every aspect of singing.

About Rachel
I am studying to become a professional classical singer, and am enrolled as a Masters degree candidate in Voice and Opera at Mannes School of Music. Through my own training, I have discovered that having an amazing teacher – one who is supportive, caring, and hard working, and who will push you and work with you to be better – is the most important tool an aspiring musician can have. I believe that every student is different; no person's body is the same, and no vocal instrument is the same.

Based on my performance in the Teaching of Singing course at Oberlin Conservatory of Music, where I just graduated with my Bachelors in Music as a Voice Performance major with a Music History minor, I was selected to be a voice teacher to non-Conservatory students at Oberlin College. I have now had several students, two of whom, with my assistan
ce, have just been accepted to prestigious summer programs in classical voice.

I am a native New Yorker, and I am a proud alum of LaGuardia High School, the Brooklyn Youth Chorus, Manhattan School of Music's Pre-College program, and the Boston University Tanglewood Institute. I am also proud to have received the Graduation award for top vocalist in my year at LaGuardia. All of these programs helped to shape who I am, both as a performer and as a teacher, and I am excited to pass on what I learned.

As a singer myself, I have discovered countless techniques and tricks to help every aspect of singing, as well as the discovery that what works for some people does not necessarily work for others, and that's ok! The voice is individual because it is inherently unique to the person it belongs to. It is the exciting, demanding, and amazing work of a teacher to bring out each individual's voice, and I love discovering a person's voice with them. I can't wait to work with you and find your voice!

Rachel is a great vocal instructor and gave me the confidence to learn and discover my own voice.

Rachel was extremely patient and could figure out how to help a new singer like me navigate their body and find a true sound. Her positive feedback encouraged me to do better along with her comforting wit and humorous exercises that really made me open up. I believe she was the absolute best person to help me along and open up more than I had ever before and I think if she continues educating that she will do amazing things, and have fun all the while!

What can I say about Kalyse because there are not enough words to do so, however I will try and sum it up. Kalyse is truly gifted in many areas from acting to musical. Her acting skills are phenomenal and her voice is simply amazing on all levels. She is multitalented, innovative, assertive, and very caring. I would recommend anything on the spectrum for her.

I have been teaching voice for singers and actors for over 25 years. In America at; NYU, Stella Adler Studio, Williams College, Bowdoin College and my own company, Voice Theatre, and in the UK at; The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, Middlesex University and in London's West End at the Drill Hall Studio.

You will learn how to utilize your breath, proper placement and build vocal power. You'll master specific exercises that unlock tension blocks in each part of your musculature as you developing expressiveness, resonance and enjoy the individuality of your free voice. If you practice you'll feel result after two weeks!

I teach all styles and specialize in auditions. After working with me I want my students to "own" their individual vocal methods and styles, expressing the essence of every song and script.

About Shauna
I am a professional director, teacher and playwright. I am the artistic director of Voice Theatre, a company I founded in Paris, in 1988. Since then I have directed over thirty-five plays in eight countries from Ramallah, Palestine to Aberbeen, Scotland to San Antonio, Texas to London, England to Paris, France.

I have taught voice and acting in many universities and professional theatre training programs on both sides of the Atlantic. I am currently a mentor for the New York Foundation for the Arts. I have led hundreds of workshops and individual classes where singers and actors have shed non-productive vocal habits and built healthy expressive voices. I have taught actors from the Royal Shakespeare Company to jazz artists to Broadway singers. I am a graduate of Carnegie-Mellon and College at Purchase where I earned a BFA in acting. M
y post grad work was at The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in Bristol, UK. I am published by Drama Books, "Voice and Speech Warm-up", University of Nebraska, "Pushing Through", Arts Navigator-London, "Taking LEGACY to Germany" and featured in Cune Press, "Stage Warriors".

My voice students experience improvements and change each week. You will learn how to utilize your natural breath and build your own vocal power. You'll become the master of specific exercises that will unlock tension blocks in each part of your voice. You'll develop strength, expressiveness and resonance and as a result you'll have confidence, expressiveness and experience joy in your speaking and singing voice.

I teach students of all ages to "own" their own voices. I work out of my studio in the East Village in NYC. I teach all styles. You will free your voice to express your unique individuality in song and in the spoken word.

Here are a few of the schools I have taught voice and acting: The Stella Adler Studio of Acting, NYU Tisch School of the Arts, T. Schreiber Studio and the New Actor's Workshop. In England at: The Mountview Theatre Conservatory, Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, Queen Margaret College and Middlesex University – all members of the Professional Theatre Training Programme of Great Britain. I have been a guest artist at Bowdoin College, Williams College and Harden Simmons College. This Spring I have been commissioned by Texas Tech University to write a new play.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you become a better artist!
