Learning to sing is an amazing process. Your body is the instrument and
you will learn how to play it.
The most misguided information about singers is that they are "BORN WITH IT". Everyone knows you have to learn how to paint, dance and even bowl but for some reason people think there is no skill or technique involved in singing. I think the fact that most singers do not admit that they have had training adds to this fallacy. Not to mention many singers do not want to share their teachers. My students tell me that I am Rockford Illinois' best kept secret. I have taught males and females for 25 years, all ages and all styles. Results are immediate with a money back guarantee. Those are strong words.
For the last decade I have put on 2 musical shows a year at the Mendelssohn Performing Arts Center (where I taught for 21 years) to sold out audiences. This gives my students a chance to Showcase themselves if they choose to. I also do demo prep work and help those who just need to get that one special audition or wedding song up to par.
Aspiring female vocalists need to know that a male teacher cannot develope the female voice in a beginner because he cannot produce the 'middle register '. A qualified female teacher has the unique ability to sing in the lower register and has no problem teaching males.
Enjoy the samples of my voice in various genres. I have a 3 octave voice and I use it. There is too much music to be sung to have a limited range.
If you cannot produce the sound you are looking for; if you think your range cannot be dramatically expanded; or if you are stuck copying other singers I invite you to the exciting world of "Technique".
I am located in Rockford, Illinois, on East State Street near Rockford College. My rates are very reasonable. No contracts. I teach every day and can be reached at:
Sheila’s passion for music is equaled only by her love for animals. She is deeply involved, and well-connected in rescuing animals all over the country, and works tirelessly to save as many “fur babies” as possible, often using her own finances. She educates communities about so-called "shelters" and pet stores that support the puppy mill industry. This project was conceived to help finance her rescue work. All proceeds for her CD sales go to finance her rescue work. For details on purchasing her CD please call: 815-226-3676.
This is Ivory moments before she was to be killed in a kill shelter in Georgia. Look at Ivory six months later after her rescue.
