About Wendy P.

Chicago, IL

View Full Profile

Singing of all kinds begins with healthy vocal technique. Learning the correct warming up and use of the voice and breath is essential for a career in singing with any longevity. I use a combination of classical (bel canto) and contemporary styles of singing to bring out the best in each student's voice. We will work on breathing, range, voice blending, resonance, flexibility, projection and articulation. I am excellent at diagnosing and resolving vocal issues, as well as teaching students to connect to their material and sing with ease and expression.

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.

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.

About Helen B.

Classic singing technique and performance skills are at the heart of what I teach. Lessons start with exercises that help you learn how to take deep natural breaths and use your diaphragm to support your voice. Vocal exercises will help you develop the quality of your voice and increase your range making it easier to hit those high notes. You will also learn how to use phrasing as you sing to put feeling into the words and connect with the audience. As your voice develops you will build a repertoire of music in any style that you like to sing.

About Helen
If you like to sing and want to learn how to be a better singer, you don't have to have any previous experience or training. I specialize in teaching beginning singers of any age how to sing using the classic technique that is the foundation for singing any genre or style of music from Bach to Broadway. You will learn how to make a beautiful sound when you sing and work on presentation, acting, diction, style, and artistry choosing music that you like and building a repertoire of music that you will enjoy singing.

Training for beginning voice students is significantly different than it is for those who have had training. Some have beautiful natural voices but they strain to hit the high notes, Exercises build breath support and slowly increase your range Music is carefully chosen to help you sing with ease build a stronger more reson
ant voice

Some children also have beautiful natural voices, but they are not ready for the kind of voice training that is appropriate for an adult. A child's voice is small in every sense of the word. They cannot produce the volume or range that an adult can without straining their voice. They can learn the fundamentals of music, how to read music, how to count, rhythm and musicality. The music chosen for them needs to be easy to sing and age-appropriate Songs that a child likes that are too high can easily be re-arranged in a different key so they can sing music that they like without straining their voice.

If you are considering voice lessons for you or your child, it is a good way to develop musicianship and build a repertoire of music that you will enjoy singing. The training will be enjoyable and very effective. You will begin to see an improvement in technique after the first lesson.

I was trained in voice performance at the Cleveland Institute of Music with Marie-Simmelink Kraft, a Mezzo-Soprano who performed with the Cleveland Orchestra and other Synphony Orhestras throughout the world. I hold a degree from Case Western Reserve University where I studied art and music theory. I have more than twenty years of professional experience that inclues singing with a Chorale that performed with the Cleveland Symphony and performances as a soloist for choirs in Ohio and Michigan.

I founded and directed the Academie des Beaux-Arts, a performing arts school in Birmingham, and the Actors Alliance Theatre, a professional theater company that gave many young people an opportunity to gain experience working with professional actors. I have a combination of skills in voice and theater performance that sets me apart as a teacher who can help you develop a better singing voice and learn how to perform with artistry.

Over the years I've taken voice lessons to improve core skills. Not all voice teachers are the same! I started with Ms. Rapanan’s group class just to check out her skills and style of teaching. I discovered a truly great teacher who integrates her long-earned breadth and depth (classical to pop) styles of singing into her teaching methods. This is rare! I truly enjoyed her challenging and inspiring me to push my limits. And, she's fun to work with. She has a high-energy positive teaching style. Maybe what I like most is that she personalized my lessons; taking into account my particular voice, style, and, limitations/strengths. I have not found these teaching attributes elsewhere; knowledgeable with great command. Since she is a serious -but loads of fun- teacher, I totally endorse her for serious and committed students.

I have been singing since I was a baby, according to my mother, my first music teacher. I thought it was mother's pride till I held a 10-month old baby, sang to her and she sang back to me. I have been teaching since the age of 14 and have over 40 years experience singing professionally. With my university chorus we traveled 2 months throughout the States and culminated with concerts at the Kennedy Ctr Washington D.C. & Lincoln Ctr, NY. I sing in 34 languages covering most genres from classical to musical theater, choral to folk-rock, Brasilian jazz & standards to alternative & world music. My approach is holistic, incorporating multidisciplinary subjects with lots of fun ways to learn, explore and express yourself. Tune in!
