Overview

I am a classically trained opera singer with a 15 year background studying voice and performing on stage. I have experience with a variety of styles: classical, musical theater, pop, jazz, and rock. I am currently a member of improv-opera group Forte Chicago, which works to debunk the stereotypes of opera as an art form.

I began teaching beginner voice lessons a year ago and I would like to continue building my experience. My past and current voice students ranged in age from 16-23. In addition, I taught skiing for 3 years specializing in children age 5-12.

I started playing piano at 5 years old and consider myself proficient, however, we may use recorded accompaniment (karaoke tracks, piano tracks, etc) depending on the needs of your lesson.

I have extensive knowledge of music education techniques, music history, and theory. I am also proficient in Italian, French, German, Spanish, and Latin. My many years or professional chorus work and time as a section leader also contribute to my ability as a teacher and singer.

I teach lessons out of my Ukranian Villiage apartment and I can also do house calls anywhere in the city of Chicago.

I have a very friendly Siberian Husky, Lando who will be present at your lesson. Depending on your comfort level with dogs, please let me know if you would like me to put him in another room during the lesson. He usually sits on the couch or floor to listen.

Great instructor. Got me too understand pacing, breathing and projection very quickly.
