Voice Program

—  Preparing students for higher education, speaking professions,
and the entertainment world  —

The studio is known for its voice building – taking a voice at any stage of development and making it into all it can be. We understand how to eliminate the common roadblocks that singers face, so our singers perform with ease and confidence. We teach a technique that will carry you across musical genres, something which can only be learned from a seasoned professional. If you speak publicly, we can show you how to leverage your strengths and improve on delivery.

PRIVATE STUDY

Emily
Whatever your reason for studying voice, you will be given the tools you need to achieve your goals with confidence. Every vocal style is welcome. Our students perform successfully in classical, musical theatre (legit and belt), pop, jazz, blues, R&B, gospel, rock, rap, country pop, celtic, and folk. One performance class per month is recommended. Prepared singers are encouraged to audition regularly for performing opportunities in the Chicago area. Interested students participate in local, regional, and national competitions. We can start children as young as seven or eight. Teens and adults may design their own private study program.

CLASS VOICE

Courtney
One semester of class voice is offered to prepare young students for private study. The approach is particularly effective with 7-11 year olds. Class meets weekly for one hour. Most of the singing is done as a group. We will work on one or two musical theatre selections during the semester. Other styles may be considered, depending upon the group’s interest and ability. Each student will have the opportunity to sing solo on or off-mike.

VOICE-OVERS

There are several types of voice-over scripts, so you can focus on one type or take a more comprehensive approach.
