Welcome to Val's Music
Whether you are an experienced musician or just in the beginning of your educational journey, I perhaps, can help you to advance you potentials and bring your skills to the next level.
First and foremost I am an expert in teaching voice. Not many teachers in Chicago have clients that are currently topping Billboard charts and get signed by major record labels. I do!!!
I taught in Paris, Barcelona, Dubai and New York and have an extensive experience in working with a wide variety of musical genres including Pop, R&B, JAZZ, Rock, Country, Musical Theatre
, Gospel and last but not least Classical, which I can proudly can call my background.
Not only I have been continually developing my own art
of coaching and excellence of teaching music to others, but also making much needed connections in the music industry. I am selective who I work with, but I do give a career advice and try to match talent with the best opportunities as they come.
Furthermore, I have a strong expertise in teaching piano
, music theory
, ear training
, orchestration and arrangement.
As a working studio producer myself I have been tutoring a number of domestic and international singers, artists, musicians and bands, and have been helping them to further their projects and careers.
My teaching philosophy
revolves around an individual approach. I assist my students with help on discovering their artistic potential and guide them to overcome obstacles to make the most of their training. I provide my students with technique that will last them a lifetime and build up skills that are necessary for a successful career. Not only I nurture my students' natural talents and train them to reach their musical goals. but also persuade them to expand their networks in order to get where they want to be. I welcome motivated and gifted students who would dedicate their focus on polishing their craft to the highest standard in a great learning environment!
