Teacher. Director. Creator. Performer.
Mike O'Mara has been working professionally as a music and theater educator and performer since 2000. He currently maintains a private piano, composition and vocal coaching studio containing students of all ages and experience levels. Mike holds a Master’s and a Bachelor’s degree from DePaul University’s School of Music in Music Composition with added emphasis on vocal education, where he studied composition with Dr. Kurt Westerberg, piano with Dimitry Paperno, harpsichord with Roger Goodman and choral work with Dr. Clayton Parr.
As a teacher, Mike has become known for taking on the students other instructors wouldn’t and inspiring them with his unique methodology, repertoire and opportunities for personal expression. Over his 20 year professional teaching career, Mike's students have ranged from both children and adult beginners to fellow professionals, and their goals for study have been just as varied as their ages and ability levels. Whether a student is looking to win auditions, enter college as a music major, or simply for the love of the arts and the enjoyment that comes with artistic study, Mike's studio is open to all.
