Learn to sing the songs that you want to sing! My approach to lessons gets you singing the genres of music that inspire you to create and express yourself right away. I've taught for 3 years. I studied at The Boston Conservatory for Classical Voice and since then, I have branched out to musical theatre, pop, and rock. I've toured with my alt/indie band multiple times, performing at multiple sold out shows for music that I wrote. I have experience performing roles in legit and contemporary musical theatre as well as opera. My training and understanding of the human anatomy coupled with a wholistic and positive approach to mentality has helped my students grow in ability and confidence. I welcome all levels of experience/all ages and I teach students of all gender identities. Some of my technical specialties include: belting, riffing/agility, breathing, loosening up the voice, vowel placement, and utilizing vibrato and straight tone.

About Mitchell K.

Hi there! My name is Mitchell. I've been singing formally for over 10 years now, studying all sorts of genres like classical, musical theatre, pop, rock, and hardcore. I studied Vocal Performance at The Boston Conservatory and shortly after, I started an alternative/indie band in the Chicago area while studying Composition at North Central College. We've toured all across the midwest and played multiple sold out shows. I've written and recorded two EPs as well as one full-length album. I've also gotten to perform in some of my dream theatrical roles such as Gabe from Next to Normal and William Barfee in 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. My favorite genres to teach are pop, indie rock, alternative, punk, and musical theatre, but I'm also always glad to work on classical. It's most important to me that I work with my students on music that inspires them.

I understand first and foremost how personal and vulnerable singing can be which is why I really strive to create a positive and open minded learning environment. Learning the ability to let myself make mistakes/be open minded with something like singing has fostered a much more positive outlook on my life outside music; I'm excited to share this with the world. I'm looking forward to working with you!

I am very pleased to submit a recommendation on behalf of Mitchell K.. Mitchell is an excellent young singer and teacher, able and willing to put his well-developed technique at the service of music and text with style and authority at such a young age. I have found Mitchell’s clear and resonant tenor voice quality refreshingly beautiful. His musicality and technique rivals colleagues years older. His understanding of vocal pedagogy and building young voices is extraordinary. In short, I could not recommend more highly Mitchell as a voice teacher and as a very talented singer of a wide variety of styles. He is a wonderful individual, bright, articulate, highly motivated, and would be a most positive influence on every student in his voice studio.

Mitchell was incredibly supportive and really made me more comfortable singing in front of people. He made things easy for me to get better. He helped me belt more healthily and really boosted my confidence. He listened to me and let me work on the kind of music I wanted to learn and also pushed me to sing things outside of my comfort zone.

Mitchell creates a very safe and comfortable environment to learn in. Singing is such a personal and vulnerable art form and he encourages you to go past your comfort zone while being in very safe hands. In addition to his teaching, he also has an amazing voice himself and is a current performer. He is ALSO hilarious which adds to the fun and lightness in his lessons!

Mitchell gave me a basic vocal lesson and was a great instructor. He was able to convey some pretty foreign concepts to me in a way that made sense (diaphragm control and breathing exercises). Go learn from him!
