Overview

Adrianne has been teaching private lessons since 2011 and is currently available to teach lessons at her studio, in Chicago and Des Plaines. Students' accomplishments include leading roles at high schools and colleges in the northwest suburbs as well as many successful performances and awards at recitals and competitions.

Voice students will gain an understanding for proper use of breath, projection, ease, tone quality, diction, and confidence in solo singing. Piano students will focus on proper technique, posture, phrasing, legato, sight-reading, and performance.

Adrianne's teaching style is patient, encouraging, and enthusiastic.

Adrianne received her training at The Boston Conservatory, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Music. She completed her master's at Roosevelt University, College of the Performing Arts. She is known for her warm and sweet voice. Audiences have seen her sing in Illinois, Mississippi, Massachusetts, Florida, and Italy. She has performed over twenty roles with the likes of Opera Naples, Natchez Festival of Music, Sugar Creek Opera, Chicago Opera Theater, and Lyric Opera of Chicago. She has been featured many times as a soloist in Handel’s Messiah with Harper College. Though she has predominantly performed in opera, she is at home in a variety of styles, and teaches voice lessons in Des Plaines, Glen Ellyn, and Chicago. Ms. Blanks is a Chicago native, and the weekly soloist for Second Church in Evanston.
