About Bridget Becker
Bridget has a Bachelor of Vocal Performance from the University of Illinois and her Master’s Degree from the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY. She has taught private voice lessons in the Chicago area since 2000. Currently, she teaches private voice and piano lessons at two suburban high schools and is a frequent adjudicator for area high school music festivals.
Bridget’s teaching relies on a foundation of healthy singing and playing technique. Learning proper breathing, posture, diction, and music reading skills, students can adjust to many different styles of music with confidence and control. She believes that singers can and should explore as many styles of music as their interests inspire.
Bridget also plays piano, and lessons may include working with students on keyboard skills.
Her students have played leads in high school musicals, sung everything from Andrews Sisters trios and Regina Spektor songs, to Mozart. Several students have been in IMEA All-State honors and regular choirs, and have won music competitions.
