Instructor Bridget Becker – Voice
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.
“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.
“I study voice with Bridget. 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!”
