I have been receiving voice lessons from David Eickstaedt for the past three years and made a lot of progress with my singing voice. At the beginning of a lesson, when he introduces a new idea, it seems as if it will never help me. But thirty minutes later when I'm applying it to a song, I always find that it does work. After all, he is the teacher and he really knows what he's doing.
He explained everything very good and after 1 hours lesson I learned a lot of new things. I could notice a difference after the lesson. It was amazing. He is very nice and polite and he has an amazing voice. Generally a very good teacher and I would recommend him to other persons.
My daughter takes voice lessons and participates in theater at Stacey De and Co. We couldn't be more thrilled with everyone there, from the professional front desk staff Bre, outstanding director Sean, absolutely irreplaceable Melissa, and of course the heart and soul of this great place Stacey. The time my daughter spends at Stacey De and Co. every week is her favorite time of her week. In a completely non-stressful, family-like environment, she is stretched to really push her limits, is taught life lessons like the value of hard work and the ability to accept constructive criticism/evaluation and then improve on those things, and so very much more. She leaves every lesson and rehearsal a little more confident, learned, and determined to succeed...all in an environment of happiness, laughter, encouragement. I don't know what else one could look for in a fine arts school. My daughter and I both love it here.
Taking voice lessons with Michele for just over 8 weeks, my range has expanded and I'm gaining control. Michele is patient, encouraging and knows which exercises help me the most. Always on time & willing to give a little more. Thank you, Michele!
It was a pleasure working with Laura. She is cordial and professional. She showed genuine understanding of the message I wanted to deliver in my speech. Laura makes every effort to accommodate your schedule. She knows how to work with you until you find the right “voice” for your message. She’s adept in editing and can hone a message down to its essence by helping you to find just the right word, concept, or sentence. I appreciated her commitment and dedication to helping me write the speech I felt confident in delivering.
Josefien is a premier vocal coach with all the right knowledge and skill to sharpen a student's abilities. I am very much looking forward to continuing my vocal lessons with her!
I reached out to Beth for public speaking lessons because I have general anxiety when speaking to large groups of people, and wanted to sharpen my skills since I work for a Fortune 100 company and give presentations regularly. When I met with Beth, we first discussed what it was specifically that I was struggling with and wanted to work on. She did a really good job of helping identifying the root of my speaking fear and then helped me come up with strategies to overcome my problem. We also practiced a bunch. I brought a number of different presentations to her, and she likes to set the room up in a similar fashion to how the presentation is going to go. While I presented, she critiqued my form, offered sound advice and encouraged me along the way. After just a few lessons with her, I feel significantly more comfortable speaking in front of large groups, and have seen serious improvement. Mission accomplished! I highly recommend Beth as an instructor. While I went in for business presentations, I believe she can help with a variety of different types of speaches/acting/etc. Thanks Beth!
My daughter has been taking voice lessons for several months and really enjoys the experience. Her teacher is professional yet relatable and makes her feel comfortable. Looking forward to other types of lessons in the future.
James McDunn had been teaching my 3 girls piano for at least 3 years. They love him and they are making gigantic leaps and strides in their studies. I highly recommend Jamey for piano lessons.
My 8 year old daughter has been taking voice and piano lessons with Nicolette for a few months now. My daughter progresses steadily and gains confidence from the constant encouragement. Nicolette is assertive as well as upbeat, providing a positive and nurturing environment. Her distinct technique keeps my daughter focused while enjoying every class. I highly recommend her!
This year, our daughter won first place in the Chicago Chapter National Association of Teachers of Singing (CCNATS)’ High School Division 1 Vocal Competition! At Elizabeth’s suggestion, she also auditioned for the Anima Chorus of Glen Ellyn, and sang a solo with them on WFMT’s Saturday Broadcast of Introductions. Elizabeth is truly an amazing teacher! She explains everything very well and never leaves a question unanswered. Our daughter, Brianna Dulock, has received nothing but compliments from other experienced professionals […] It is impressive how much information Elizabeth can fit into one lesson. Thank you, Elizabeth, for the high quality of your voice lessons, and for giving our daughter this amazing voice.” — Rose Figuero Dulock, Stone Park, IL
My experience with The Music Scene is 100 times better than I could have imagined. The knowledge, patience and experience alone let me know, I selected the perfect vocal coach. I do have a little work to do with working on my new vocal range and The Music Scene's process is sure to get me to my desired end result. I'd definitely recommend The Music Scene to others needing voice lessons from beginner to professional.
I really enjoyed taking guitar lessons with Ryan! He took time to really listen to and understand what my goals were and helped me work towards them, which is no small feat for a complete beginner. He explained new concepts in ways I could understand and I felt comfortable asking for clarification. He also gave me a variety of different exercises (chords, scales, picking, strumming, full songs) to keep things interesting and to keep me engaged. I also liked that he added in a little music theory (at my request) so that I knew why I was doing what I was doing. In all Ryan is kind, chill, accommodating, talented, and thoughtful, so I would definitely recommend him as a teacher.
Clara met with our daughter to help prepare for a signing audition. Aside from being extremely competent at teaching voice, Clara is very warm and welcoming and our daughter loved working with her!
Sandra is such a knowledgeable, kind, and talented voice teacher. Her lessons are very personalized which shows she pays attention to her students and can tell what works for them. Her lessons are fun and in the year I have worked with her my voice has improved tremendously. She pushes you and truly wants you to succeed. Definitely one of the best vocal teachers I have worked with.
I have been taking piano lessons for 5 years, voice lessons for 9 months and flute lessons for 6 months at Music Makers...For Life, Inc. As an adult with prior music experience, I had certain ideas on how I wanted my lessons,and Theresa was very willing to accomodate my wishes. She always tried to work within my schedule as well. Theresa was always kind and patient with me and always made me feel good about my music and myself! I'm also impressed with how her school is structured for kids. They earn "music money" if they've practiced their lesson or land on the right square on the board game the teachers use to reinforce their teaching. Then they can spend their "music money" in her "music store" on small toys, or t-shirts, tote bags, etc. This really motivates the kids to want to practice! Older kids might be invited to join one of her rock bands, which perform around the county. Playing in a rock band helps to keep the teens enthusiastically engaged in their music! Music Makers...For Life is truly "The Fun Way to Learn to Play"!
Linda is not only talented, but she is able to inspire my son to work harder and want to play the piano. She has so much patience and energy for working with kids. My son actually said he would only take piano lessons if he could have Ms. Linda is his teacher!
SolJAMM is an incredible experience! I have personally taken piano lessons since I was young and my 4 kids have all grown up with piano, guitar or voice lessons in their weekly schedules. Let me tell you that SolJAMM's Instructors perform a service that is nothing short of REVOLUTIONARY!! I SAVED hundreds if not thousands of $$$ over the last 2 years. Using SolJAMM, with my two youngest has forever changed the way I approach personal music instruction. When I previously took lessons there was a lot of time and money wasted just making sure my tired kids were paying attention or doing the tasks they were asked to do. SolJAMM's style allows you to choose the skills you want to work on and sends you all of the necessary material to master that skill or style. They also make awesome personal response videos, live chat sessions and track/update you on your progress. It seems they have actually found a way to make music instruction an easy and fun process. The instructors were extremely respectful and genuinely care for your growth as a musician, almost feels like you are joining a team!!! Again, BEST MUSIC LESSON EXPERIENCE EVER PERIOD.
Julianne was wonderful with my daughter! We look forward to continuing with her singing lessons.

I have a bachelor's and master's degrees in music performance in voice, and I have quite a bit of performance experience, including several leading roles in operas. However, I believe that the fundamentals of good singing are the same in every genre, and I will be happy to work with you in whatever style of music interests you the most!
