Stephen T. Chicago, IL

I specialize in helping students really dig into the emotional subtext of a character to not just help them sing, but to really understand and inhabit the character they are portraying.

About Stephen

I'm a classically trained singer taking a hard left at the corner of classical technique and real-world application. I studied classical voice for undergrad, but I started work in pop and jazz voice during my Masters degree. As a result, I've turned out to be a very versatile instructor, well-versed in multiple genres and able to teach healthy technique to all. *** Lesson Details *** I tend to be pretty laid-back. You give me your time and commitment and I guarantee that I will push for you as hard as I can in order to help you achieve your goals. I have a few recommended books for students to purchase, but no set curriculum. I expect that our lessons will be an exploration of our shared musical tastes with an emphasis upon building a healthy performance technique. For younger kids, I

Best lesson teacher I've had

Let me start out by saying something about myself. I have played saxophone for 5 years and bass for 3 But I never had any vocal training whatsoever until about 6 months ago when I started with Mr. Tanksly. I have taken lessons before but I have never felt as welcome or comfortable in a lesson as I have with him. He is very patient and encouraging which really helped me to become comfortable with my voice. Also he always has helpful analogies and ways to help me understand what he wanted me to do with my voice. Every time I walk into my lesson he is always bright and happy and ready to get started. With his help I have made huge improvements in my vocal technique. Overall Mr. Tanksly is an amazing lesson teacher and an amazing person that I would suggest to anyone.

Really makes you think

I have been taking singing lessons for about 6 months now, but I have learned more than I ever thought I would. Mr. Tanksley is such an amazing teacher in so many ways. You can communicate with him what you want to work on, and he always seems to have a good strategy or analogy to help you in what you are having problems with. He is very laid back, and as long as you come to the lesson prepared, he will not disappoint.

About Sarah

OVERVIEW First of all, thank you for taking a look at my profile! I hope that we can work together to find your unique voice and style. As they say, "be yourself...everyone else is taken." For that reason, I do not take the same approach for every student I teach. Everyone learns differently, and I want to make sure I am teaching you in a way that will make your learning experience the best it can be. I do expect you to have goals of your own, but I do have a few goals for you. I want to help you: 1) develop a healthy singing technique that will bring longevity to your career or hobby. 2) learn music efficiently and independently. 3) develop good practice habits. 4) learn basic ear training/sight singing. Now, here's a little bit about me. I've been ...

Even as a subject matter expert, Sarah paced her lessons to match my beginner skill level. She was very flexible with her schedule and always very responsive to questions. Highly recommended.
Wendy P. Chicago, IL

Singing of all kinds begins with healthy vocal technique. Learning the correct warming up and use of the voice and breath is essential for a career in singing with any longevity. I use a combination of classical (bel canto) and contemporary styles of singing to bring out the best in each student's voice. We will work on breathing, range, voice blending, resonation, flexibility, projection and articulation.

I have a B.F.A. in Theater/Voice from The University of Kansas and an M.A. in Interdisciplinary Arts from Columbia College Chicago.

Professional, Effective, and Challenging Lessons

Wendy is probably the most professional and talented voice teacher I have worked with in my time singing. She was able to quickly diagnose and help me begin to address difficulties I was having, but was also very proactive in helping me find repetoire that I enjoyed and that meshed well with my voice and my musical interests. She is extremely knowledgeable about the mechanics of singing, as well as the interpretation of song, and really challenged me to think through my singing in a way I hadn't before. Thanks!
Serena P. Chicago, IL

Musical theater has been my passion/life since I was young and I can help you sing all the various styles that musical theater calls for today. I can especially help you prepare for auditions and learn how to balance the singing and acting into it.

I've been singing in choirs for over 6 years and was looking for a way to get into singing in college, and I found Serena by a lucky chance and have seen her weekly since January - not only have my vocal skills and techniques improved considerably since then, but I've become a lot more confident in singing other genres.

Serena is a fantastic teacher and is very flexible with availability - she always tries to make the lessons work on your time, and as a full-time student juggling two jobs, that was exactly what I needed. Every lesson is great - it's a healthy mixture of singing, genuine conversation, and discussion of techniques and ways to become better at something I genuinely enjoy.

I would definitely recommend her to beginners and returning singers alike - she is extremely passionate about what she does, and it really pays off when you can confidently sing a brand new piece after having worked on it for just a few lessons!

Serena has been an incredible influence on my 11year old thespian. She is always on time, positive, and she clearly communicates any changes or needs in an effective and timely manner. My daughter has improved significantly from her time with Serena and I cannot recommend her highly enough!

A patient and skilled instructor

I was so nervous about taking up piano again. My experience as a child had been less than stellar. Serena was exactly the instructor I had hoped for - she quickly assessed my ability and was able to adjust her teaching style/lesson accordingly. I was a bit nervous at first, but her patience helped me relax and enjoy the lesson.

Joel is an amazing teacher! He is knowledgeable and very passionate about his career. His style goes far beyond just a point and sing approach, he makes it a point to get to know each of his students and goes above and beyond to learn their voice type and learning style so he can better understand how to train them. In the four years I studied with Joel he not only trained my voice but also trained me in proper singers health and etiquette (Vocal health tips, Proper stage dress etc.) He helped me prepare multiple theatre and college audition repertoire and also inspired me to pursue a career in vocal performance. I would highly recommend Joel to anyone who wants to further their knowledge or begin a new journey in the world of music.

It’s hard to put into words what Joel W has done for my voice. His teaching ability extends far beyond just imparting proper technique, though he does that extremely well. The way he is able to delve into how my mind works, how I experience music, and how I learn and then to teach me in language that I am wired to understand is an incredible gift. He not only expedited the process of my progress but he also opened the door for me to discover the rich artistry of singing: the textures, the colors, the emotions, and the carefully crafted details of a beautiful voice.
Far from a cookie-cutter approach, he helped me to find my unique voice and celebrate its strengths. He is always eager to give me the tools I need to become the singer I have always hoped to be and, under his tutelage, I cannot believe how far I have come."

I trained with Joel in Arizona for a year. I gained confidence as a singer as I started to understand and apply the technique. You know that he is knowledgeable because of the degrees he carries but I would add that he is knowledgeable in the operatic technique and the voice overall because of his own application that he demonstrates in the studio to get his point across. He has a great voice and you can hear him utilizing the technique that he teaches. He makes it a point to get to know you and how you learn so that he can better explain things. He is serious about his profession, owns his own opera start-up, and is also a performer. If you are willing to work, you will not be disappointed by the results you will hear.
I can confidently recommend him to anyone who is looking to learn how to sing and/or improve their voice!
