Chy is a terrific singing coach that I would eagerly recommend to anyone who's interested in establishing solid technique. Over the course a dozen or so online lessons, he's brought me from being the subject of good-natured ribbing at karaoke events, to receiving my first compliment (something that I did not think was even theoretically possible). On top of that, he's friendly, a clear communicator, and has extremely reasonable rates.
By way of background, I am a total beginner when it comes to singing, but I've had extensive training in violin and piano (>15 years, including at places such as Meadowmount) where I have been exposed to many different teachers. The best teachers I've had focus on establishing fundamentals regarding posture and mechanics. Consistent with that, Chy has a deep knowledge of how to address those fundamental issues, which (at least in my experience) crop up in beginning and very advanced students alike. For that reason, I would recommend Chy for a student of any ability who is looking for a fresh perspective.
One last thought regarding online lessons: I am somewhat old-school because I used to make the ritualistic weekly commute to my violin and piano instructors. But, much to my delight, I have found that FaceTime is an excellent way to take lessons from Chy and does not appear to impede the instruction at all.

I am an industry professional performer with over seven international awards to my name. I took lessons with Chy for almost two years and was always impressed with his professionalism and how he searched for personalized approaches for each student. His attention to detail and fundamental technique insure that you are left with long lasting vocal quality. Highly recommend!

I really appreciate your candor as to how to improve my acting. I never feel as if you're being judgmental when your giving me advise.
I'm glad you;re working with me.
Sometime, I'd like to take time with you to talk about acting possibilities in
Bowling Green or the Toledo area.

Working with Chy was an amazing, and fun experience. Not only has taught me so much about proper singing technique and proper breath support, but he has also broadened my understanding of the human voice as an instrument in general. I have very much enjoyed taking lessons from him and continue to practice everything that he has taught me in my day-to-day life.

Chy Billings studied voice with me for three years at Wichita State University, and is one of the most talented students I have ever had. During that time, he was a graduate teaching assistant for two years. Chy not only sings beautifully and intelligently, he is a fine teacher as well. I recommend him without reservation.

Chy was a GTA for Wichita State; I direct the Voice and Opera area. His students all raved about how kind, knowledgeable and attentive he was. He taught singers who were interested in music theatre, opera, church music and popular music. All were equally enthusiastic about his teaching. He has my enthusiastic recommendation.

From a vocal coaching and teaching perspective I can truly say Chy is a real Gem. Open to new experiences, thinking outside the box, and talented in any musical genre you can think of Chy can lead any Singer with a dream and a passion on his enthusiasm alone. As a professional I recommend Chy Billings 100 percent. Give him a try, you won't regret it. Jen Vanella Artist, Educator, and advocate.
