Hello. I’m Jill Wilhelm.

Jill Wilhelm has a passion for singing, developed through years of study and performance. Jill draws on years of teaching, coaching and performing experience to craft a voice lesson experience that helps students develop their confidence as well as their voice.

Jill Wilhelm’s Lessons

Jill’s lessons help students develop a breadth of skills and are paced to push the student to new places with their voice.



Good singing technique is a universal trait among professional vocalists in every genre. No matter the style, learning how to sing with proper technique makes your voice stronger and prevents you from doing damage to your vocal chords. Jill uses a hybrid approach, developed from her range of experience, to help voice students develop great technique.



While technique is universal, every genre of music requires a different style. Singing musical theater requires a different mindset and tonal placement than opera. Jill teaches her students and theater ensembles to match vocal tone to performances and roles. Learning to place the tone in different parts of your body will allow you to sing a wide range of genres and style.



A good performance can make up for less than perfect vocalizing. But a good performance, when added to proper technique and singing placement, will let you move an audience. For the last 7 years, Jill has helped hundreds of students and performers develop personal styles that animate their performances and entertain their audiences.
