My fiancé is a licensed plumber and HVAC installer and has installed an iWave-R air purifier on the house which inactivates SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) in just a few minutes! This really provides a safe environment for voice and piano students. Lessons will be spread to allow a break between students. The Music Room of Fox Valley Music Studio is 22’ X 26’ which helps with social distancing. Hands sanitizers are available and/or access to the bathroom to wash hands before and after lessons. Using a mask for protection is your decision and I will respect the wish of each individual.
In-Class lessons and/or Online lessons are available. I upgraded my internet speed. It will be 8 times faster than what I had, so we should get a much better connection. I have been using Zoom.us, Face Time, Hangout and I am still learning about additional services. The great thing with Zoom is that the lessons can be recorded and saved on cloud. The students can view the recorded session as many times as they want. This is a great way to practice and review at no extra cost.
Group Classes are also available In-Class and Online through the Dundee Township Park District.
I've been told that I was very patient and really good at sharing my knowledge of music. Also I have many years of vocal training in both classical and pop style from renowned teachers and coaches. I am still performing professionally.
I studied piano at Vincent-d'Indy school in Montreal and developed an excellent technic. I started to teach piano when I was 16 years old. So I have many years of experience.
I love sharing my knowledge about music to people and especially with kids.
It is really fun to be able to develop beautiful sound and extended range from young singers. Their reaction is so amazing!
Solange is a good teacher with a welcoming professional studio. We have learned so much already with the first few lessons.
Solange is wonderful! She helped me prepare for a musical audition for which I got a part in. Yay! I'll certainly be back to see her again soon!
For piano lessons, I have to see if I have to start from scratch or figure out where they are in their knowledge.
For voice lessons, I have to hear the student first to see what technic and exercise would be the best choice to start with.
As a pianist, Solange holds a D.E.C. and Laureate Degrees from Montreal’s Vincent-d’Indy Music School.
A graduate with Bachelor and Masters’ degrees in Vocal Performance from the University of Montreal and a former apprentice with Lyric Opera Center for American Artists (Chicago), Miss Sior has performed with many organizations in the Midwest and in Canada. She is a former winner of the Canadian Music Competition and winner of the National Bel Canto Competition, as well as finalist of The Metropolitan Opera National Council.
A starting package of 4 lessons for the price of 2 is available for new students. Lessons are set at $30 (half hour lesson)
I started teaching piano when I was 16 years old. I have always been a free-lance musician.
I work with all type of students from beginners to young professionals. The majority of my voice students participate in the school musicals. After only a year or two of training they end up getting all the lead parts!
Some students are great achievers! Several of them have won competitions including the annual Granquist Music Competition held in Geneva, the Kane County Talent Show, the IAAF talent competition, and Elgin Opera Vocal Competition. They have been cast as lead singers with Children’s Theatre of Elgin, Fox Valley Rep, Christian Theater of Elgin and of Crystal Lake, Cirque du Soleil, Goodman Theater, Chamber Opera Theater and Elgin Opera.
Students pursuing college educations in opera or musical theater have received $30,000 - $45,000 in scholarships due to the quality of their training.
