Overview

Hello! I am a passionate private vocal instructor looking for students who love to sing, whether as a hobby or as a profession or anywhere in between. I am currently working on my masters in Vocal Performance at Indiana University. I believe in my students success and love to watch and provide support as you grow as a musician and singer. I am a classical singer who uses classical singing technique to inform my teaching of other genres. If you have any questions about the nature of voice lessons, please contact me!

I can help your singing move in any direction that you would like to go! There are no limits on what can be done, and I want to help you achieve your goals, whatever they might be! My past students have had varied interests, and I have enjoyed working with all of my unique students in their own artistic areas of interest.

Megan did a great job with my daughter, prepared her for college auditions and instilled confidence. She also challenged her to learn more difficult pieces that highlighted her voice which led to her acceptance at all three schools at which she auditioned.

Ms.Wilhelm has been my favorite voice teacher that I have ever had! Since she is easy to open up to, and easy to be comfortable around, my voice improved so much! I never once was embarassed, or nervous, and she pushed me to give it my all and my voice became so much stronger and clearer while she was teaching me. If anyone ever were to ask me who to go see for voice lessons I would say Ms.Wilhelm!

Where to start? I loved lessons with Ms. Wilhelm! Everything we did in the lessons bettered not only my vocal sound, but even my mechanics and mind process. Before I started lessons with her, I would constantly sing flat and I didn't have a clue as to why. Thankfully, Ms. Wilhelmina was able to sort out the kink and put me on track to betterment. I'm so thankful for her work and for the effort she put into each and every lesson. She definitely made me a better singer, and I would highly recommend her services to anyone wanting to better themselves in music.

Megan is a stellar singer with meticulous attention to technique and artistry. I had the pleasure to work with her this summer, and can attest to her reputation of being a patient coach and fantastic colleague. She personally helped me improve technical issues in just our first coaching. Anyone taking lessons with her or working closely with Megan are in the company of a first class singer, technician, and humble person.

Ms. Megan was very helpful while I was preparing for All-State Auditions. I chose to continue lessons with her for the rest of the year and she helped we work on vocal technique, sight reading, and relaxation.
