Organization logo

I am a recent college graduate from Carthage College in Kenosha, WI with a degree in Music Education. I have been taking vocal lessons for 8 years and been providing vocal instruction and aiding vocal teachers for 6 years now. I am a soprano and can teach both broadway style and operatic voice. My performance credits include: Dido and Aeneas (First Witch), Little Women (Aunt March), Seussical the Musical (Wickersham), and The Marriage of Figaro (Marcellina). My awards include: 1st Place Singsational Competition (Spring Grove, IL), 1st Place Lake County Fair Talent Competition (advanced to IL State Fair Competition), 1st place Gurnee Idol 2008, and 2nd Place Waukegan Idol 2007. *** Lesson Details *** Students should expect to learn about the vocal chords and how to manipulate them. My philosophy is that without the understanding of the vocal mechanism, students can not effectively learn how to use them. I, therefore, will do a lot of vocal exercises with students before they actually sing songs, so they learn all the different colors of their voice. I also like to put a lot of emphasis on performing, and not just singing! I help students really perform and feel the song, and not just sing the notes. I am pretty laid back, but I expect students to practice at home! But, if students are having trouble learning, I am very patient! *** Studio Equipment *** Lessons in home studio and utilizes a piano to teach. Parking on driveway or on the street is fine. *** Travel Equipment *** I do have a keyboard that I can bring with me if the student does not have one in their home. *** Specialties *** I teach the Estill method of voice pedagogy which focuses on the actual vocal mechanism (vocal chords, nasal passageways, etc) and uses terminology that describes the look of the vocal chords (thick folds, thin folds, etc) which create different kinds of vocal sounds. I use this method to teach classical voice and broadway voice.

Noodle says

Takelessons started as a platform to for music teachers, and is still strongest on that front. It provides tutors with organizational software designed to help track lessons, and so probably attracts more tech-friendly, highly organized tutors. No vetting or training is provided for tutors, so we highly recommend that you use their ratings and reviews when selecting a tutor.

TakeLessons says

Success in learning often depends on finding the right teacher; someone that not only has expertise in the subject, but also knows how to inspire. The teaching style that works for one student may not work for another. As a parent or student, how do you find the right match? As a teacher, how do you find new students that fit your style? TakeLessons bridges this gap.
