Want to get your feet wet with The Bard? I'm experienced in coaching young actors/beginner actors in finding the way that feels best for them!

About Molly M.

WHO ARE YOU? You are the future star of a Lin-Manuel Miranda show, if he would just write about your life for a change!

You are a business owner whose voice is tired at the end of the day (*cough* singing lessons strengthen speaking *cough*)

You're a player who's on the way to becoming a singer/songwriter.

Someone told you you couldn't sing and after years of wondering, and now it's time to know for sure (they're wrong).

You used to sing but life got in the way and you miss it, and you need to get back to it but don't know where to start and are worried you missed the boat (you didn't).

You front the best Ratt cover band in the country

Who Am I?

I wanted to be the next Susannah Hoffs, or at least Mrs. David Lee Roth. Neither happened (yet), but I knew that music was IT for me.

I would have married Elvis... but he was already dead.

I was a happy theatre and music nerd in school, where I sang music theatre and opera.

My high school choir teacher told me couldn't sing and had no talent. He also wrote that on my college recommendations.

But still. . . I persisted. I'm a proud graduate of Millikin University, the Juilliard of the Midwest.

While I was in college, I went Full Geek as I learned all about how the voice worked. So after graduating with a vocal performance degree (I shared a stage with Sierra Boggess once!), I put all my learning into practice:studying rock vocals, more classical voice, belting, pop, you name it!

All of this experience has let me to be your ideal voice teacher and your biggest cheerleader. Besides your mom.

It's my mission to help you enjoy the voice you've got and use it to the fullest, no matter what.

I am the teacher for singers who don't want a teacher to be teacher-y (but who still want to learn to sing good and stuff). I can teach you online (but you'll miss out on my two aging, sassy cats). It's all good.

I will embrace you as you are (unless you love Christina Aguilera. If that's the case, you must be shown the error of your ways. And pretty much anybody on The Voice needs to be kicked in the voice).

That's who I am. Very pleased to meet you.

I want you to laugh as you learn, and love love love the results you’ll get . I understand what what it's REALLY about- expression and fun, not judgement . Vocal exploration that's 100% customized .

BMus Millikin University, further studies Boston Conservatory . Coachings with professionals from Rossini Opera Festival, Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago. Rock vocals with Melissa Cross. Musical theatre with Sheri Sanders of Rock the Audition!, Vocal Instrument 101 training with Dr Shannon Coates. Dalcroze Eurythmics. John Henny's Science of Singing course completion. Belting with Lisa Popeil. Teacher masterclass with Maestro David Jones. Proud member of NATS. One of only a few CoreSinging teachers in the USA, trained by Dr.Meribeth Dayme.

In progress: Ultimate Music Theory Teacher certification.

Former students from ALL walks of life, including many many beginners of all ages (have I mentioned I love beginners?) Also: child Broadway actors, aspiring recording artists, scholarship recipients at top theater AND music theater programs, business owners, karaoke divas, film/TV actors, and even an American Idol finalist!

Don't let piano scare you. I have a way of teaching beginner piano to ALL ages that is non intimidating and always always implementing songs that are actually ....GOOD (no "Hot Cross Buns" allowed)!

I especially love teaching beginner piano to teens and adults. It's never ever too late to learn and enjoy it- so jump in! I'll help with sight-reading, style, note reading, musical terminology and more.

I sing: opera, Broadway, classic pop and jazz, classic country, folk, and world music!

I TEACH: opera, art song, pop from every era, musical theater, country, worship music, choral music, rock, folk, jazz, R&B, gospel.....seriously, you name it, I teach it!


*** Lesson Details ***
I teach in person ( Schaumburg, Northwest Suburbs of Chicago) and online via Zoom, FaceTime or TakeLessons Classroom, of course!

****Please note, I have two cats. They are FRIENDLY and love people. They like to say hi (well, one of them does!) during lessons but I can also keep them out of the teaching room if you prefer, just let me know ****

*** Studio Equipment ***
Materials I use: Funky n' Fun Vocal Exercises, Estelle Liebling Vocal Methods, Bona and Dannhauser for sight-reading, Full Voice workbooks for young and serious singers!
PIANO PRONTO for pianists! I have an upright piano in my home. ***

*** Specialties ***
Beginner vocalists! Very shy singers. Very young singers. Lapsed singers, and seniors. Post-menopausal voices, adolescent voices. Experience in working with those with learning disabilities, anxiety, special needs, and victims of abuse. Have also worked extensively with the LGBTQ community and studied with experts in transgender voice .I also love to give workshops! Beginner adult pianists.

Molly is amazing! She’s taught me way more than singing skills - my confidence as a singer has grown exponentially since I began taking lessons from Molly. I would recommend Molly to anyone, especially anyone who may think that lessons are intimidating. I feel comfortable making mistakes because Molly is so kind and positive. That said, since starting taking lessons with Molly, I’ve been making a lot fewer mistakes! Molly is the best!

Molly is such a kind and patient teacher. She never gets upset if you make a mistake and she is extremely encouraging throughout the lesson. I'm a very shy singer but I feel comfortable singing in front of Molly because she isn't judgemental at all! I always look forward to my lessons with her and I've already grown as a singer and grown confidence-wise because of working with her! I highly recommend her!

My daughter, who is 13, has been working with Molly for about 6 months in preparation for an audition to a performing arts high school in San Diego. After using someone local that did not really work out, we decided to try online training and came across Molly's great reviews. Happy to report that we have been very pleased with the lessons, Molly's guidance and help picking out the right song and monologue for the audition. Best of all, after all the hard work, my daughter was accepted into the program! We will continue working with Molly as my daughter pursues her passion for musical theatre.

I enjoyed taking lessons with Molly. I was skeptical about taking singing lessons online because I much prefer taking lessons in person. However, molly was able to provide feedback that helped me improve on my vocal techniques. She made me feel comfortable, which is important because vocal exercises can be at times strange, but necessary. I would recommend Molly for those who want to take lessons.

Molly is incredible. She has amazing energy and style. Two of my girls are taking lessons with her and they vary in age and personalities - Molly's style is incredible to keep my older daughter learning and advancing, while also being able to connect instantly with my younger daughter, who is extremely shy. In only 2 lessons, both of my girls learned so much and are having fun in the process. We are thrilled we found Molly and so excited to keep the lessons going. She has so much experience and talent but more importantly, she has a gift for translating that talent and energy into customized lessons that engage the kids, meet them where they are, and keep them excited to learn more. We love Molly!

May 2017: I paid for 5 classes, and we've had about 4 or 5 by now. I have to say I LOVE Molly! She's great with my daughter. My 13 yo daughter has a learning delay, which is not noticeable to many, but it takes a longer to learn something that's natural for most kids. Molly is able to make her lessons relatable. We do the one hour classes and she has my daughter doing the vocal exercises during the first half an hour, and the second half an hour she's working on her song that she's learning for her "talent" portion in a pageant for Nov 2017. I'm pretty particular about teachers/instructors and I have to say I've gotten every dollars worth. We plan on signing up for more lessons because the difference in her singing from the start to now, on her song that she's working on, is noticeable! Impressive!!

My daughter has been a student of Molly's for 3 weeks, now. From day one she has been the most energetic instructor we could have asked for. My daughter looks forward to the practice every week. After her lesson, she is so excited about the range of characters and the skills she's asked to display. Molly is very encouraging and always provides positive reinforcement. My daughter has been in several plays and has had issues with projecting and her confidence. I look forward to her next audition, as I believe Molly's instruction is providing the tools needed to be her best

Molly met me right where I was at when I began taking vocal lessons. Not only is she patient, but she encourages me. She helped build my confidence as a novice singer; and she uses simple examples to help me with my misconceptions in terms of singing. Towards the end of each lesson, she observed and listened to me sing while simultaneously reinforcing prior singing practices (e.g. breathing, noun stress, tone, etc.). Gradual release of responsibility is effective for me. Furthermore, I benefit from her post observation notes, as it helps me to continue to practice my singing at home. I really enjoy and appreciate vocal lessons with Molly. 😍

Her ability to encourage my daughters dramatic choices while gently guiding her and putting her completely at ease was magnificent. More importantly, she made everything FUN!

I sing significantly better than I did 4 months ago. The magic of MOLLY!

She has a strong solid technique. Molly is also very attentive and if I don't understand the point right away, she will take time to explain it for me plain and simple.

Molly is excellent as a voice/drama coach. Molly helped my 12 year old get her first real part for a play at a local theater. Not only has my daughters singing improved, she has also gained confidence. Molly is so encouraging and super positive. She helped prepare my daughter for her audition with lots of great advice on how to prepare her voice and perform. She coached her on body language and how to stand out at an audition. My daughter adores Molly and always looks forward to her next lesson with her.

Molly is not only a knowledgeable and highly professional singing coach, she makes learning fun! Singing is a joy with Molly guiding you through the techniques and "tricks" of the trade. She recently did a group lesson via Skype with my friends and I and it was a blast. My New Years resolution: more lessons with Molly!

I have Molly R. to thank for getting me out of my fear of singing. At first, I was so nervous that I couldn't even sing along to the radio with my friends! I met her through a class with Boldly Me, and then ended up taking lessons with her to prepare for my first big audition with StarStruck (I know right? I love performing but I get shy about singing). Though I didn't get in, she had given me that boost of confidence and the arsenal of skills/tricks that I needed to keep trying. I worked with her again to audition for Stage1's "Seussical"- and got in as the "lead Wickersham"!!
Molly has helped me with so much; she teaches you beyond what you could expect of yourself and guides you to your fullest potential.. all while keeping it fun and comfortable!! Molly doesn't just help you learn how to sing, she helps you learn to love to sing.

Molly is a great teacher. She is very flexible and easy to work with. I've learned a lot and, the lessons have been very enjoyable. I would recommend Molly to anyone considering taking singing lessons.

I brought my five-year-old son to Molly ten months ago to help prepare him for a choir class. My son wasn't overly enthused at first. With a lot of patience and understanding on Molly’s part, he’s come around to looking forward to their sessions together. He’s now six and can match pitch and learn multi-verse songs. He sings along to his favorite songs in the car although he complains, “Daddy, I don’t want to sing, I just can’t help myself.” That spontaneous urge to break out in song was just what I had hoped for my son. Thank you, Molly!

I decided to take my 10 year old daughter to lessons at Molly's after she expressed an interest in singing. Molly is great with kids and my daughter really looks forward to seeing her every week. The singing lessons have given her a boost in confidence, so now she is auditioning for community theater and school musicals. Molly has been encouraging and helpful, and I would recommend her to anyone!

From the comfort of my own home!

I was amazed at the quality of my long distance lessons on Skype.. I have only had two lessons so far, but feel like I have made a lot of progress. I get to choose the genre of music I want to pursue and don't have to leave my home to do so. I have so much to learn about technique, but I am confident that Molly will continue to guide me. She makes lessons fun and interesting.

Molly is the best.

I came to Molly because I had never really sung before, and had wanted to pick it up after playing different instruments. I was pretty self conscious about the whole idea of singing, and didnt really have that much faith in it. I really didnt know what to expect from singing lessons at all, but Molly really broke things down for me and made the experience positive. She wasn't judgmental or pushy in any way at all. She listened to my ideas of what I wanted to sing, and some of the artists I got inspiration from. Not only that, but she's really awesome because she likes so many different genres of music! I would think that most vocal teachers prefer more classical types of music, but Molly could totally relate to rock n roll, alternative, etc. After my first lesson with Molly I felt 100% more confident about training my voice, and everything I was looking for in voice lessons I found. Thats why I keep taking lessons from her. She set me up with many different exercises to practice by myself, and she does a really good job of breaking things down so that a person with no singing experience can understand everything. Overall, I would recommend anyone, regardless of age or music preference to go to Molly for vocal lessons.

Also, she does skype lessons which is a HUGE help for me considering I live a little far from her. (I didnt know what to expect with that either, but you'll be surprised how well it works).

What a Teacher!

I've been taking singing lessons with Molly since Janurary and already I can tell a difference in my vocal ability. She makes learning how to sing properly so easy to understand and so much fun while doing it. I'm a little shy to sing in front of people and I need a confidence boost but Molly is so easy to feel comfortable with and I find myself becoming more outgoing and willing to try new things with my voice. Although I've been singing since I was young, with Molly's help I am just now learning how much easier those high notes can be. Plus her prices are super reasonable, she's the best and I'm so glad I have her encouraging me every step of my singing journey.

Wonderful and full of energy

Molly is dedicated to helping new and current students grow to the best of their abilities. She has helped me grow in all aspects of my voice, including breathing and diction. My voice is much stronger and fuller thanks to her teaching. I also love having voice lessons over FaceTime from the comfort of my own home. I would highly recommend her!
