I teach singers of all genres (country, classical, pop, bluegrass, rock…) to sing with confidence and freedom!

I have a M.M in vocal performance from the Chicago College of Performing Arts and have extensive operatic training. I teach a technique that allows the singer to sing with freedom, and access their entire range evenly. I also work with students to develop style, interpretation, languages, and acting ability.

Kathryn has been teaching my 13 year old both voice and guitar. My daughter is just starting out in both and is learning a lot. Kathryn is friendly and has been so great at working with us when my daughter was sick or when we're needing to reschedule. She's been having lessons for a little over a month and her experience has been great. We're looking forward to continuing lessons.

Meghan dove right into the lesson, customizing it at the perfect level for our daughter's experience. We liked that she was prepared and maximized the time. She has a youthful personality and knowledge of pop songs which is a great personality fit with our 13 year old daughter. She also customized the lesson and song choice in a way that would appeal to my daughter. My daughter is actually excited to take lessons and is already planning her list of songs she wants to learn.

SO helpful! I just had my first lesson, and now have a much better understanding of what I've *been doing with a particular monologue, versus what I *could be doing. I have way more peace than anxiety now. Shauna's voice is also so soothing.
Jamie
Shauna is wonderful and I can't say enough good things about her. She is the kind of teacher that is encouraging and patient. Who takes the time to help you discover your weaknesses so you can build and strengthen them. I can feel the difference her teaching has made for me each time I perform. I've learned being an actor isn't about being pretty or safe. It's about being open and free to let the material take you to places you could only imagine. Shauna teaches you to unlock those parts of yourself and explore the possibilities.

Excellent, professional instruction. She has helped me make significant progress.

"I wanted to wait a while before giving Rob a review so that I could be fair and honest about his teaching and my experience. Rob is a kind, dedicated, and patient singing instructor. He understands how to make students feel comfortable with singing, which for me was a really big deal. I'm a 25 year old male and that didn't make him flinch, despite my lack of formal musical training.

Rob's also great about letting his students pick songs that they're actually interested in singing and is encouraging when you're struggling. He understands how to point out strengths and remains optimistic in a way that bolsters your confidence and helps you get over whatever obstacle (mental/physical) that stands in your way. There's no "can't" when working with Rob. Only suggestions on how to be a stronger singer and words of reinforcement.

In my time learning from Rob I feel my vocals have improved pretty dramatically. I can sing without strain, my power, breathing, and general understanding of proper singing technique have improved ten fold. He gives you the tools that you need to continue working on your own (singing exercises, keyboard warmups, stretches, plosives, etc.). I can't say enough good things about the guy.

I would recommend Rob to music lovers of any age that want to learn a new skill. I hope to continue taking lessons from Rob for a long time to come. Thank you for all of your hard work, Rob!"

But here's something smart to keep in mind warming up goes far beyond breathing exercises and scales!

Songwriting Prompts to Spark Your Creativity

Songwriting is a seemingly mystical process by which some universal truth is almost subconsciously dictated through you as an empty vessel on to a blank page. It often - but not always - takes a form. It often - but not always - has a rhyme schema. And frequently - though not always - can follow a formula. Whether you're just starting as a singer/songwriter, or you're a veteran musician, the songs that make their way onto our hearts are not written so much as they are discovered. Songs happe …
