I am a classically trained singer, and I prioritize health above all else when teaching voice. As a soloist, I work with students to improve their abilities to sing confidently and technically efficient by themselves. I teach everything from standard operatic repertoire, musical theater (helping them get roles like Cinderella from "Into the Woods" and Gabriella from "High School Musical"), popular music, and much more. I love learning from my students and their interests.

About Madeline H.

Hello! I'm Madeline, and I'm a vocal instructor, beginner-piano teacher, and music theory tutor. I've been a tutor since Fall 2014, and teaching private voice lessons since January 2015. I love introducing students to new repertoire, showing them a different way of looking at concepts, and helping students realize how smart and talented they are. I want my students to feel prepared for where their love of music takes them, and we are absolutely going to have fun while learning. I'm excited that you are interested in learning, too, and I cannot wait to hear from you.

Madeline is a really kind and enthusiastic instructor. She helped me feel comfortable with my voice and validated my singing, granted I'm not the best singer. I think that's a really great start to singing. I was starting to see some growth in my singing because Madeline helped me become more aware of my body and singing, but I had to discontinue lessons because of certain life circumstances. Would totally recommend.

Madeline is great! The lessons are easy going and fun. She's a great teacher. I learn something new and leave with something to work on with each lesson. Highly recommended!

Madeline is always so welcoming and encouraging to our 16 year old daughter.
She is flexible, too, and has been willing to work with our schedule this summer in order to help as much as possible. We also appreciate her willingness to do lessons both in person and online. Our daughter has learned so much and her singing confidence has grown already. We are so grateful!

Madeline is exceptionally talented, both as a singer and as a teacher. She improved my technique and performance skills, and her insights into how to approach every piece of music I brought her were invaluable. I could not have asked for a better instructor!

Madeline was my 9 year old daughter’s piano teacher for 18 months.
From the beginning Madeline connected with my daughter and put her at ease as she started her piano experience. Madeline’s choice of music books, songs and her teaching techniques allowed my daughter to learn the fundamentals from the beginning and progress with time.
Both my daughter and I appreciated Madeline’s devotion to her students and her responsibilities to the parents in terms of up to date communications, suggestions for improvements, etc.
We are sorry to see her moving away but wish her all the best!

Madeline is wonderful! My 12 year old daughter felt comfortable with her right away and has come so far in just a few weeks. Her confidence has grown so much, and her chorus director has noticed a difference already.

I had zero experiences of singing English and English is not my first language. I am so happy to have Madeline as my singing teacher. She is absolutely amazing and I had a great time during our lessons. She is very knowledgeable, responsible, and her teaching is super interesting, descriptive, easy to understand. I was able to pick up different styles of songs in a very short time with her help. She helped me discover my voice possibilities that I never realized before. I highly recommend Madeline as a singing teacher!!

Madeline is the best instructor ever. She helped me so much with everything I needed to work on. She is also super kind, understanding and knowledgeable. 15 out of 10, would definitely recommend to a friend!

Madeline is giving my 11 year old daughter voice lessons. I love the convenience of having the lessons on-line because there is flexibility whenever either of us needs to move a day or time. Eve loves working with Madeline and I think she is gaining confidence from her lessons. Eve will be joining her high school in their performance of Newsies in April. Thank you Madeline.

Our daughter has become so much more confident in projecting her voice at school musicals and performances all thanks to Madeline! Madeline ensures your child understands the fundamentals of music and helps them build their singing voice from the bottom up. We look forward to many more lessons with Madeline as our daughter moves on to high school with her eye on future musicals.

Madeline is lovely. She is down-to-Earth, highly knowledgeable, and fun to work with. If you are lucky enough, you might get to hear her sing! I highly recommend her as a vocal instructor to individuals at all levels of experience.

My son really enjoyed his time with Madeline. Unfortunately, due to a move we were no longer able to attend this particular location. Madeline created an environment where my son felt very comfortable exploring different music, he always came out of class with a smile on his face. Madeline was instrumental in motivating my child to sing in front of an audience for the first time. This is an experience I don't think we will ever forget. She is encouraging and inspiring, as well as very talented and knowledgeable. We will really miss her.

I began studying music at age 80 with Madeline. I'd always yearned to sing, but couldn't match pitches and knew nothing about music. Her patience, encouragement, knowledge, and good humor have opened a whole new world of music for me in just a few months. I'm perhaps a bit older than most of her beginners, but I cannot say enough good things about Madeline, for getting me off to a great (late) start. In addition to being an excellent teacher, she has a lovely, supple, expressive voice and will go far in her singing career.

I have had to the pleasure to work with Madeline during the past few months and I can confidently say that she is a well-rounded, sensitive and hard working musician. As a pianist you always want to work with a singer who is respectful and who wants to collaborate on a high level, and Madeline showed me that from the very first time we worked together. She is extremely knowledgeable, patient and hard-working and I would highly recommend her as a teacher.

I have been taking singing lessons with Madeline for a while now, and I couldn’t have asked for a better teacher! Her personality can make anyone feel welcome. I am very shy but she manages to get me out of my shell. I have definitely felt that my confidence has improved tremendously since I started my lessons. Madeline is also extremely talented, patient, flexible, and helpful. She can very easily explain a concept or a technique by creating an image in your head, which I find immensely useful.

I have recommended her to all my friends that are interested in taking singing lessons and plan on continue to do so, because she really is a great teacher! I am very thankful to her and always look forward to my next lesson 😊

Madeline is sweet and so knowledgeable. She is one of the greatest teachers I have ever worked with. She can help with anything from the basics and fine tuning to the most complicated of pieces. She makes the lessons fun and educational. In only a few weeks I feel I've learned more then I ever did in school music classes.
100% recommend.

Madeline combines her terrific knowledge of singing, anatomy, music theory and songs and shares it in a wonderfully accessible, patient, passionate and age-appropriate way. My daughter has her lesson scheduled for Fridays after her long school week is finally done and no matter how tired and sometimes grumpy she might be as she heads into her lesson, she is always smiling and cheery when she finishes.

Madeline was so friendly and helpful. She connected with me on a personal level through tutoring and we're still friends today! She helped me through my music theory classes in college and adapted to my learning styles easily. One of the sweetest people I know, thank you Madeline!

Just when I thought music theory was hopeless for me, Madeline became my tutor and that turned around so quickly! She is so helpful, relatable and friendly. She's an excellent tutor and never failed to help me understand a concept. She has a beautiful voice and I guarantee you will be so much better for it if you take lessons or tutoring from Madeline.

I worked with Madeline while I was taking my music theory classes and she was great at helping me simplify and understand the content. She worked well with people at all different levels and always had these small tricks to make things easier.

Madeline is an incredibly intelligent, patient and passionate teacher. Her immense knowledge of music theory and voice pedagogy well equip her to advance the voice of any level of student. Her gentle yet directed teaching style helps students feel safe and comfortable while exploring the very intimate art of singing. Her personal investment in each student and passion for the art of singing and teaching singing is a rare gift that should not be overlooked. I highly recommend studying voice with Madeline Huss

Madeline is the best teacher!! My 12 year old daughter looked forward to each and every lesson! She made things so fun and she was so positive! Very up beat personality. My daughter got two major lead roles in school musicals with Madelines training. Our time with Madeline ended because she moved, or we would still be with her!!

I have had the pleasure of singing with Madeline in The Concordia Choir in Moorhead, MN. She was the soprano section leader, as well as the choir's go-to soprano soloist. Talented yet humble, Madeline often inspired the choir through her passion for music and her joy for singing. Anyone would be lucky to have her as a teacher!
