Introduction: Hi! I am Kyla Gabka, and I teach online piano, violin, and voice lessons! I do not offer in-person lessons at this time. I have been studying the performing arts since I was four years old. I am a singer, pianist, violinist, and actress, and I currently offer private virtual violin, viola, piano, and voice lessons. I have a BA in Music and BA in Musical Theatre from Columbia College Chicago. I have had so many wonderful opportunities to share the knowledge that I have gained throughout my time as a performing artist. I am a signed artist with Boosted Entertainment, and I am a Producer for the group Musicality, semi-finalists on AGT season 11. Not only do I assist in creating and directing music videos and original music for the group, but I also get to perform at incredible events and venues with them: UNICEF Won't Stop (with Jordin Sparks), Lollapalooza, KultureBall 2019 with Marc Martel, the Rosemont Theatre, TEDx with Ari Afsar and Miguel Cervantes (Chi-Hamilton Stars), and McDonald’s WWC (opening for Imagine Dragons, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Hudson, and Bruno Mars). I have been in numerous music videos with the group and have led recording sessions. A few videos I have worked on ("This Is Me" and "From Now On") have even gained several million views! I have had the honor to star in the film "First String" as Rebecca Carlisle, and I am reprising my role in the sequel. I have had so many wondrous opportunities to share my craft with others, and I am enthusiastic about sharing even more through teaching and performing.

Kyla was great! She really helped me get stronger with my vocals and she helped me learn how to breathe better when singing. She was awesome !!

Kyla is an absolutely delightful teacher. Ive been studying singing, music theory, and composition with her now for nearly 3 years and I couldnt have asked for a better teacher. Just in general, shes endlessly kind and patient in her lessons and its a privilege to be able to learn from her. Im autistic and at first I was very nervous about doing singing lessons but Kyla always was able to put me at ease and has always been accommodating to my support needs. As a teacher she always pushes you to do better but never too hard that you get overwhelmed, and whenever Ive been lost or confused shes always able to explain things clearly and help me understand. Composition is something Ive always wanted to do, ever since I can remember, but I was very discouraged after high school. Thanks to Kyla Ive not only rediscovered my love for composition but gotten so much better than I ever was. Im now able to write pieces I actually like. I never thought Id ever get to this point. I really cannot express how lucky I feel to have her as my teacher.

Kyla was instrumental in preparing my 14-year-old daughter to sing Through the Years at my parents 50th anniversary/vow renewal in Las Vegas. She helped her find a more modern version than the one Kenny Rogers sang, and a key she was comfortable with. Everyone was in tears, she did such a superb job. She wouldnt have had the confidence or presence she did without Kylas help! Highly recommend her to anyone needing voice lessons!!

Kyla is an incredibly talented musician and vocalist with years of professional experience in both performing and teaching! I had the pleasure of being her student, and she has helped me significantly improve my singing skills. Kyla is a kind and caring individual who'll help you grow no matter your skill level. Not only is she proficient in singing, piano, and violin, but she also has perfect pitch. I highly recommend Kyla to anyone looking for a skilled instructor!

As I have been interested already for a very long time into being able to play piano myself, but never found the motivation to learn it on my own. I found Kyla, she was an incredibly patient teacher. She gave me very good instructions on how to proceed without note reading skills and exercises that kept me motivated to prepare myself for the next session. Over and over.If I could give one point of critic, it is a shame I had all these lessons over the internet as I am not from her neighborhood. Even then she gave the lessons very well!
