Polish your singing with a professional voice teacher and music producer
I've been teaching singing for over 20 years now and you can check out some of my students' work on my YouTube channel. I've been working with some new and upcoming artists signed by Columbia Records and Warner Brothers!
About Val K.

My name is Val and I am an expert in teaching voice. I have been enjoying helping singers and musicians for over 15 years and so very proud to have clients who have already climbed to #1 on Billboard charts and are successfully developing their careers with major labels such as Columbia Records and Warner Brothers. Besides teaching voice, I have an extensive expertise in instructing piano, music theory and ear training. I also teach sound production at Harold Washington College, and have experience in orchestration and arrangement using a variety of software like Pro Tools, Cubase, etc... I work with a variety of domestic and international talents, composers, musicians and bands, and help them to further their projects to the new heights. My teaching philosophy is based upon an individual approach. I assist my students with discovering their artistic potential and guide them to overcome obstacles to make the most of their training. I provide my students with the technique that would last them a lifetime and build up skills that are necessary for a successful career. I have established connections in the music industry and keep expanding my networks, so that I can best help my students to find the best platforms for further development of their careers. I welcome motivated students who would dedicate their focus on polishing their craft to the highest standard in a great learning environment! So, whether you are an experienced musician or just in the beginning of your educational journey, I perhaps, can help you to advance you potentials and/or bring your skills to the next level! I am currently based in Chicago, but I have coached and performed in the past in Moscow, Paris, Barcelona, Dubai and New York. I base my technical approach in classical school, while effectively applying it to a wide variety of musical genres including Pop, R&B, JAZZ, Rock, Musical Theatre, and Gospel. *** Lesson Details *** Convenient location, great studio, fun working atmosphere.

I'm a beginner and Val was very patient. He started me out with some great basics for me to practice and enforced that I should make it fun!
