Let all the beginners get to music and explore their own pretty voices to sing with healthy techniques.

Bo, a soprano, is currently a DMA student at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, did Master's degree at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA. Her performance experiences include opera performances, the major role "Alice" of Verdi's opera Falstaff at University of Illinois-Champaign, the main role"Lauretta" in Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi, Suor Angelica, singing in Duquesne University’s Aria Night, Night of Broadway and Cabaret Favorites, and Scene Night.

As a native of China, she completed her undergraduate at the Shenyang Conservatory of Music in Shenyang, China. Her performances in China include performances with the Shenyang Conservatory of Music and the Luxun Academy of Fine Arts. Bo also took part in making the recordings for Ma Kai’s “Motherland Is In My Heart”. In the summer of 2011, Bo traveled to Rome, Italy, to study and

Bo has had numerous success teaching students of all ages. Whether they aspire to become professionals or just singing as a hobby, her teaching techniques are adaptive to each individual student’s needs. She is also offering reading, speaking, and writing tutoring in Mandarin Chinese.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a voice teacher, I believe that my job is to allow the students to discover their own unique characteristics. I like to teach in an relaxed environment where the student will be able to develop a healthy (learning bad techniques can be harmful to the throat and body) strong techniques. It is important for the students to learn their own bodies and limit, while being taught to use their bodies to help produce beautiful singing.

Singing is more than just about using their voice and achieving proper technique.. It is equally important to learn the music history, theory, acting, etc. appropriate to the piece they are working on. When everything comes together with proper singing and the correct knowledge, students will be able to perform a piece in an intelligent manner.

Finally, something I have learned from my previous teachers, it is important to go beyond being just a teacher, and become a role-model and a mentor to my students.

About Desiree
I'™m excited to be a TakeLessons instructor and to be able to share my experience and knowledge with you. I have been a singer and performer for over 20 years and have taught voice and beginning piano for six years.

I received a Master of Music in Vocal Performance from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music and a Bachelor of Arts in Music from Rhodes College in Memphis, TN. I continued my studies in New York City in voice, acting and diction.

I continue to be an active performer specializing in musical theater, opera and concert. I began my professional career as an apprentice with the Portland Opera in Oregon. Since then, I have appeared with opera companies and orchestras throughout the United States and abroad and am a frequent guest vocalist and recitalist.

Recently, I performed with Alia Musica h
ere in Pittsburgh premiering works by local composers and created the role of Pamela in the premiere of TOOWHOPERA by composer Sorrel Hays in Rome, GA. On the concert stage, I have recently appeared with the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Orchestra, Chattanooga Symphony Orchestra, Chattanooga Bach Choir and CreateHere'™s Hops and Opera.

Highlights of my performances include Queen of the Night in Die Zauberflote with West Bay Opera, Stockton Opera, Opera San Jose and Pocket Opera, Despina in Cosi fan tutte with Mission City Opera, Blonde in Abduction from the Seraglio and Yvette in La Rondine with Pocket Opera, Cunegonde in Candide with Arena Stage in Washington, D.C. Other roles include Rosa Bud in The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Abigail in The Crucible, Mabel in The Pirates of Penzance, Zerlina in Don Giovanni, Madame Herz in The Impresario, Lucy in Threepenny Opera, Monica in The Medium, and Pamina in The Magic Flute.

I was a featured performer in a series of concerts in Europe, South America, and Australia aboard Cunard'™s Vistafjord and Royal Viking Sun.

I was named a world finalist in the Luciano Pavarotti International Voice Competition, a regional finalist in the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, a semi-finalist in the Jenny Lind Competition and a regional winner in the MacAllister Competition.

*** Lesson Details ***
Whether it is preparing for a competition, an audition or a role for the school play, I enjoy helping students of all ages reach their goals. I structure the curriculum to the individual needs of my students, focusing on healthy vocal technique, musicianship, stage presence, and joy in music.

During your first lesson, you will sing various vocalises to determine how you negotiate the changes in registration, what your vocal range is, and what you have to work on to improve your vocal quality, stamina, and flexibility.

If you do not see an available time, please call Takelessons. I sometimes have availability that is not visible on my calendar.

Desiree is a terrific vocal coach! I just completed my third lesson and am very impressed with her skills and ability to refine my breathing, diction and vocal continuity. Atmosphere is extremely inviting and she is very pleasant while also staying highly focused and on task. After taking some time off from singing, I was looking for someone who could get me back in shape vocally with a combination of classic training and some crossover to musical theatre. She fits the bill very well!

My lessons are productive, intuitive, and fun! My goal is to take the best qualities of your voice and incorporate them into your entire range. My method of teaching is to build upon that which is known and apply it to the unknown in the singing voice. My method is custom built for your unique voice. Above all, I want my students to feel comfortable and confident in my lessons. I have two degrees in Vocal Performance: a Bachelor's from Florida State University and a Master's from Ohio State University.

About Samuel
I am an opera singer currently pursuing a Professional Studies Certificate at the Manhattan School of Music in New York City. I have sung with Opera Columbus, Opera Project Columbus, Ohio State University Opera and Lyric Theatre, Opera in the Ozarks, The Sankt Goar International Music Festival, and Florida State Opera. This August, I will be singing in a production of Mozart's The Magic Flute at the National Opera Center.

At Opera Columbus, I sang in the “Opera for the Young” version of Jules Massenet’s Cinderella in which I played Prince Charming. This version was in English and was toured to underprivileged schools all throughout the central Ohio area. It was an eye-opening and rewarding experience. I am passionate about Opera and sharing that passion with the next generation will aid in their appreciation of music and culture.


I am comfortable teaching many styles of music and singing, namely opera, music theatre, country, and gospel. I will fine-tune your voice to fit the style of singing. After all, technique only exists to serve the style of the music in a healthy and beautiful manner. I grew up on these types of music and I understand the vocal demands of each one of them very well. I sing them all the time!

I am an experienced singer and I know the voice well. I understand its potential and its limitations. If you take lessons with me I will not only improve your voice, but I will also improve your vocal intuition. I will give you the tools to self-diagnose your vocal problems with good technique. I understand that learning how to sing with good technique can be a difficult process, but I have had many teachers and perspectives on teaching voice. With this, I can teach you to sing in a way that you will understand and find fulfilling.

I am a musician, educator and counselor.
I believe every person should have music in their life in one way or another.
Most of the people who come to me want to learn to sing or play an instrument.
Others that I have worked with or spoken to have wanted to identify why Music holds such a powerful place in their lives.
The purpose of my teaching studio is to facilitate the realization of Music for every person willing to enter into that journey with me.

About William
I have over 30 years experience in music education, which includes private lessons, choral camps for high school students, honor choirs, and working as a music professor at university.

My doctorate in voice is from The University of Texas and I have 3 other music degrees.

I also teach woodwinds, piano, guitar, theory, composition, arranging, orchestration, music history/appreciation, conducting, vocal health, diction, acting and monologue prep.

Many of my past students have gone on to have careers as musicians, singers, actors, and music educators.
