Bachelor's in musical theater performance from Columbia College Chicago. Audition prep (acting/singing) and vocal technique for clients since 2007.

My critique during your lesson is always honest, so you know when I give you a compliment it is well deserved. I especially love working with non-singers and helping them find their voice. I always start with an assessment to see where your work is currently at and where we can go from there. I keep notes during your lesson, send you an email afterwards with your homework for the week, then I use those notes to think of personalized ways to improve your technique before your next lesson.

If honesty and results are what you're looking for in a teacher, I promise to be that teacher for you.

*** Lesson Details ***
Whether you're studying vocal technique or prepping for an audition with me, each lesson starts with an assessment. Then, we start with where you are at that moment and push your technique to the next level. Afterwards, I will send you an email with notes from the lesson and your homework.

My goal is cultivate your technique and discipline to take you to the next level of your performance.

Vanessa is incredible. I look forward to my voice class every week, as she is not only fun, but also incredibly helpful. I have noticed not just my voice improve, but my confidence as well. I have had several voice teachers in my life, and I have never liked one as much as I like Vanessa. TAKE HER CLASS!

Vanessa arrived on time which made a good first impression. She began by asking about my goals. I was amazed at all I learned in my very first lesson. Vanessa's instructions were clear and easy to follow. She gave me my homework for next week's session which I am excited to learn. She was very encouraging and reassuring. She made me feel like I had made the right decision in choosing takelessons and Vanessa as my instructor.

Vanessa is an AMAZING acting teacher/coach! She's very personable, motivating, knowledgeable, encouraging and professional. I'm so excited about what I've learned thus far and ecstatic about the level of acting I'll achieve once my lessons are complete.

I studied with Vanessa for a year, and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. She was everything I could have asked for in a voice teacher. As someone who had been too afraid to sing all her life, I never imagined I'd be where I am today. I walked into my first lesson filled with nerves, and left completely calm and excited to go back. Throughout the year Vanessa helped me grow as a singer, and a performer. I learned so much about myself and my instrument. She pushed me to trust myself and be confident in my voice. On top of all that, I had so much fun in every lesson; I laughed almost as much as I sang. Vanessa is truly incredible, and I consider myself luck to have been one of her students.
