Goldie from Chicago, IL

Starting a music career is twice as hard w/o support. Help me hire a vocal coach!

I want to be a voice empowering women of color through my rock-metal band. I'm working part time; vocal lessons could help me reach the next level!


I am a lead singer in a rock band that I created in Chicago 5 years ago. I initially started as a jazz vocalist but began self-teaching different styles of singing in this band. I am now seeking to take my vocal training to the next level by working with a trained coach.

My goals are to do a Midwest tour with the band and be able to perform professionally all over. I work with a lot of local organizations empowering girls and women and we want to really bring more focus to women of color in the rock-metal genre of music.

I need 3-4 months of vocal coaching to jump start my training. The vocal trainer is specialized in metal vocal training and can provide professional guidance so that I do not injure my voice.

Meeting this need will help me because performing at the Taste of Chicago later this year is a big opportunity and additional coaching to prepare for this and future shows will really help the trajectory of my career.
