Voice Lessons in Naperville, Illinois

Our Approach to Voice Lessons

​Our private voice teachers primarily focus on popular music and musical theatre songs. If you have always wanted to be a better rock, pop, country, jazz, gospel, theatre, or R&B singer, then we have the right voice teachers for you!

Voice Lessons Should Be Fun!

Finding your own voice is one of life’s great pleasures – and learning how to use it makes that feeling even sweeter! At Musical Expressions, we want every student to LOVE their music lessons and find fulfillment in learning how to sing. 

Our voice teachers create a positive and supportive learning environment where you can succeed, no matter your starting point or level of experience. Whether you are singing in a choir, a musical theatre ensemble, as a soloist, or just in the car, our experienced teachers can help you build confidence and have fun, while working on music you enjoy.

We Emphasize Healthy Technique

Singing may look simple enough, but the voice is a complex series of systems that form an expressive and delicate living instrument inside of each of us. Perhaps more than any other musical discipline, having an experienced voice teacher to assist you in training these processes to work together is key to healthy, lifelong enjoyment of singing.

Musical Expressions’ highly-trained instructors will assist you in learning strong fundamentals including proper breathing, diction, resonance, stage presence, and non-verbal expression. We strive to ensure that our voice students become literate musicians, so lessons will also include discussions of music theory, history, and rhythm. Mastering these technical basics will broaden your horizons and allow you to explore many different styles and genres of music in the future!

We Care About Your Musical Interests & Goals

We teach all styles of singing, including musical theatre, classical, contemporary/pop, jazz, country, and folk. Your voice is unique – and therefore, your instruction should be, too. Whether you are a beginner, have some experience, or are an accomplished performer with a desire to further develop your skills, our teachers will provide customized guidance designed to advance your individual goals.

Learn from our experienced staff of professional singers and graduates from several prestigious musical programs. At Musical Expressions, we approach each lesson with a goal of inspiring creativity, instilling confidence, and exploring the dimensions of what your special voice can do.

Voice students spend time each week doing physical exercises to improve their vocal range, ear training, breath control, vibrato, tone production, enunciation and more.

All voice students set goals with their teacher to work on sounding like their favorite recording artists, preparing for a theatre audition, or if they prefer, to develop their own unique voice.

Our Reviews

  • Musical Expressions is a great place to learn and experience music!

    Phil L.
  • As a band director and published composer, I was particular in finding a musically-rich studio environment for my son. Well, we found it. Musical Expressions is a bright and cheerful enterprise providing top-notch instruction in a most musician-friendly way.

    Tim L.
  • We are very satisfied with Musical Expressions and their teachers. The children love to come to their lessons with John Melnick. They have made a lot of progress within the past 2 years. We will continue to recommend the studio.

    Lucy D.
  • I love my lessons. As a teen I enjoy the independence and respect Erik [Swanson] gives me and his depth of musical diversity is only surpassed by his technical skill.

    Andrew B.
  • I recently signed up my grandson for piano lessons with John at Musical Expressions. The studio is friendly and inviting. Tim has only had a few lessons but we can already see improvement. John is a great teacher. He really keeps the students entertained and alert! It is great to see all of the smiling faces in the waiting room. The facility is very clean and well maintained. What a great place!

    Martha S.
  • I have to call out Rory’s piano teacher, John Melnick, for his awesomeness. In the year since Rory has been with him, I am blown away by Rory’s ease in picking up songs, his technique and enthusiasm for the instrument. Before it was a chore Rory had to tick off his list, but John’s down to earth approach coupled with his talent and love for music has obviously rubbed off! ‘Hats off’ to Musical Expressions for finding wonderful John for us.

    Wendell
  • Sue Good has given me so much more than just the ability to play the piano. Her positive approach to teaching has encouraged me to continue to grow both musically and as an individual. Sue, thank you for everything you have given me. You will always be special to me!

    Rachel R.
  • I have three children studying piano with Yee Seer [See]. She is a great teacher. The children enjoy working with her. She has given them great musical experiences.

    Martha B.
  • Dearest Sue [Good], you have been much more than a piano and music teacher to our family. You have become a dear friend and a part of the family. Thank you from the bottoms of our hearts for all your care, wisdom, and love not just for our girls, but for everyone around you! We look forward to a long, happy relationship with you and the studio!

    Elena V.
  • John Melnick is an Excellent music teacher. John is so patient and relates well to all his students. Being 76 and wanting to play piano for the first time, John was able to make my learning fun. I highly recommend John for young or elderly lessons. You will be happy you did.

    Wendell K.
  • Kristofer has been a student of Greg Luberda for the past two years. I was looking for an instructor who was comfortable with teaching piano to precocious young boys and was assured Greg would be just the person. The advice was on target, Greg has the patience of Job as well as the level of firmness needed to ensure Kristofer stays on task. My son has grown in ability and musical competence over these past two years. He enjoys his piano lessons, maybe not so much having to practice piano daily, but continued piano development is clear.

    Irma S.
  • I love the creative ways different teachers explain the art of music. They make learning fun rather than making it seem like a chore. With Alex, he chooses fun warm ups and songs that you will not only learn from, but enjoy doing.

    Ella S.
  • I study voice with Bridget [Becker]. She is absolutely amazing! I feel very lucky to have such a fantastic teacher!

    Celeste C.
  • When my 12-year-old daughter and I decided she’d like to take voice lessons I searched the Internet for voice teachers near Glen Ellyn. Musical Expressions caught my eye because of all the types of lessons they offer. When I inquired about lessons via e-mail they got back to me the same day so I knew they were organized – definitely a plus! They said one of their voice teachers, Bridget Becker, had openings so I scheduled her first lesson. We were both so pleased to meet Bridget. I took voice lessons throughout high school and I think my daughter has already learned more in three months than I did! Bridget is such a genuinely kind and supportive teacher. We are so pleased to be part of the Musical Expressions family!

    Kathy N.
  • My daughter enjoys her voice lessons [with Bridget Becker] and looks forward to them every week. Singing makes her happy. I, as a parent, enjoy supporting her in activities that make her happy.

    Karen F.
  • As parents that studied music from grade school through college, we wanted to make sure our daughter received quality lessons once she started an instrument in school. We found that in Musical Expressions and Josh Malave!

    Since starting Cello lessons, 2 months ago, we have noticed a big improvement in not only her bowing and sound, but in her confidence level. She doesn’t shy away from playing at home, and actually has fun practicing!

    She is truly enjoying her lessons and we are excited to see her continued progress!

    Matthew & Stephanie F.
  • I just stopped in the office to let you know how much Emily is enjoying her cello lessons with Mary [McGinty]! Emily is practicing more and really progressing beautifully. We feel very fortunate to have such a dedicated and talented teacher. We love Musical Expressions. This studio is such a gem!

    Keith D.
  • Being a musician and an athlete is definitely possible; it requires good communication and scheduling flexibility. Nicholas has been taking lessons with Bobby Clark for the last 2 years. During this time, she got to know who Nicholas was both as a musician and an athlete. She is extremely understanding with his schedule and works with us to schedule his music lessons around athletic activities. Nicholas has grown as a musician under Bobby’s guidance. We are extremely appreciative of the partnership that we have with Bobby that allows Nicholas to continue growing musically and stay involved in the athletics that he enjoys.

    Amy J.
  • Bobby [Calebaugh Clark] is a great horn teacher who has introduced me to a lot of new music and materials that I haven’t experienced before. She has wonderfully improved my skill level, confidence, and performance ability!

    Maria R.
  • Stephen has been a drum student with Ron [Spaeth] for several years. Ron has a great teaching personality and our son looks forward to every lesson. We will continue to recommend Musical Expressions to friends and family members.

    Christina G.
  • I’ve been taking lessons with Ed [Breckenfeld] for about a year and a half. He always finds ways to challenge my abilities and keeps it fun by giving me new songs to learn each week. Ed is a great drum teacher. I really feel like he cares about my progress as a musician.

    Patrick B.
  • For a long time I’ve wished that I could play guitar and I finally decided to try lessons. Patrick Dugan is absolutely great. Aside from being an amazing guitar player, he’s a fantastic instructor. He goes above and beyond to help me learn and keep it interesting. I recommend Patrick and Musical Expressions to anyone interested in learning guitar.

    Alex H.
  • Patrick Dugan is really great to work with. He has shown me many techniques for practicing at home and has managed to keep learning fun!

    Alex H.
  • Enjoying the lessons with Pat Dugan – they are taking me out of my comfort zone and making me practice (probably for the first time in 20 years!). I like learning the new cords & fingerings.” Outside of lessons I play in a band every week at my church.

    I would recommend lessons here at Musical Expressions to anyone – any age!

    Nick M.
  • My son is learning well and progressing with the help of his horn teacher, Bobby Clark. These lessons give him confidence to do better in middle school band class.

    Venkat D.
  • I feel like I am learning because I have improved a lot! I think I should go to one hour lessons!

    Punith D.
  • I love lessons! The music is a challenge and it’s really worth it! I absolutely love Bobby because I have learned a lot in the time that I have been here and I have made lots of progress. I look forward to coming every week! The recital was a great experience for me because it was the first time ever doing a solo with an accompanist. I look forward to many more years here. And, I think Bobby is wonderful!

    Christian Q.
  • My daughter takes music lessons with Bobby Clark. She is very helpful and it’s obvious that she loves to teach! We really like the teacher and the staff at Musical Expressions. They go the extra mile.
