I have been studying the performing arts since I was four years old. I am a singer, pianist, violinist, and actress, and I have a BA in Music and BA in Musical Theatre from Columbia College Chicago. Through teaching, I have had so many wonderful opportunities to share the knowledge that I have gained throughout all my time of being a performing artist. I currently teach private violin, piano, voice, and acting lessons at Allegro Music and Dance Academy. I even had the privilege to assistant direct four summer musicals at the academy. I am the Associate Director for the group Musicality, semi-finalists on AGT season 11. Not only do I assist in making arrangements and teaching music to the group, but I also get to perform at incredible events and venues with them: UNICEF Won't Stop (with Jordin Sparks), Lollapalooza (with Bishop Briggs), KultureBall 2019 (with Marc Martel), the Rosemont Theatre, TEDx with Ari Afsar and Miguel Cervantes (Chi-Hamilton Stars), and at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion with the Chicago Sinfonietta. I have been in numerous music videos with the group and I 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.

She is amazing - One of a kind coach!

This is my second review for Kyla And it is only because of how much I have learnt from her ! She helps me navigate towards my goals with so much support and directs me to the right resources when needed! Before taking her classes, I dint think I would be learning so much about music as a subject. She assures that her students gain strong fundamentals in music. She always comes up with interesting ways to answer your questions and she breaks it down so clearly that it makes it easier for us follow her and engage in exercises better ! I'm seeing so much progress with each one of her classes and I'm better able to understand myself as an artist. Just don't hesitate to communicate your goals and she's there for you as your coach! --------------------------------------------- Previous Review (as of June 2021) I have been taking both vocal and piano classes with Kyla for a few months now and there is something exciting every class! Her approach is unique and she has a very good understanding about her students. She is very organized in her teaching, and makes sure that the student progresses towards their goal. She pays very close attention during the lessons and helps the student learn various techniques. I am more than happy to have found her as my vocal coach!!

Supportive and Encouraging

As I’m learning I often doubt myself and my progress but Kyla always gives me reassurance and celebrates my progress. Not only that, but she is always able to give examples and answer questions when needed. Five stars!

so good with kids!

My daughter adores Kyla and is looking forward to next week! Kyla sends summary notes and expectations for the time between lessons.

Fun and enthusiastic

I had a great time while I was learning with her guidance. What else can you really ask for? There aren't many people who can make learning fun and effective, but she is one of them.

Knowledgeable

She accommodated based on the needs of my son who had a concert coming and needed extra classes. Now she is teaching him a very difficult Bolivian song. That proved to me that she is a knowledgeable and my son is in great hands

Knowledgeable, patient, and great with kids!

Kyla is very professional, patient, and knowledgeable. She gave me all the info in advance of the first lesson and answered all my questions. My son, age 7, was beaming after the lesson. Two thumbs up for Kyla!

1st Lesson

Today was my daughter’s first vocal lesson with Kyla. My daughter was extremely nervous and Kyla was very reassuring and kind. Kyla was very knowledgeable and walked her through everything. My daughter is thrilled with her new tutor and cannot wait until next week.
