vocal Lessons with layla

I believe in music as a way of life; it's a form of expression and an escape during life's challenges. Music has the ability to heal people and to build confidence, identity, harmony, and community. Everyone has a voice - a great teacher guides students on the path to finding it.”

Layla Frankel is a vocal coach, specialist, and teacher who is passionate about music education and helping students find their authentic voices and authentic selves. With expertise in styles including jazz, pop, soul, musical theater, indie rock, folk, and gospel, Layla works with a wide range of voices, styles, and experience levels. 

With 8 years of teaching experience and 15 years of extensive vocal training, choral experience, and tutelage under some of Illinois’s best vocal coaches, Layla has developed an in-depth understanding of the physical, mental and emotional demands on vocalists, and guides students to better understand and master their instruments. Through customized practice regimes,  Layla works with each student individually to help develop technique, vocal control, artistry, performance skills, and ultimately, to reach their desired goals.
