Student Testimonials:


"David Bloom and Spider Saloff changed my outlook on music and on life. I'm already a semi-professional, but they give you straight and honest feedback. I wish I had taken his "Jazz Vocals" class 10 years ago!"

Study with Spider Saloff


Learn from seasoned professional and award-winning vocalist Spider Saloff. She was recently awarded the 2017 Bistro Award for Ongoing Jazz Artistry at an award ceremony in New York City. 

A New York cabaret artist who has made Chicago her home since 1994, Spider Saloff is recognized for her masterful musical technique and her ability to illuminate the meaning of every song. Spider works with you to develop your own personal style as well as on presentation, confidence, delivery and more. 

“A thrilling singer!  This is a voice you can dig, ‘cause I dig it too.” -Lionel Hampton 

“Right-on intonation and a personal style which can sell a ballad or tantalize with half a chorus of scatting.”  -Dick Hyman 

“Full of life and vitality.”  -Studs Terkel

“Ms. Saloff is a gifted and polished song stylist.  A most enjoyable musical outing!”   -Rex Reed

“Here is a list of qualities that every great singer must have. Great pitch, Time, Clarity, (Diction) and the greatest gift of all instant identifiability - you hear a few notes and immediately know who is singing.  This is something that any singer would kill for.  Spider Saloff needn’t worry. She has all these qualities and then some! She’s incredibly musical, a great performer, and marvelous songwriter.  A perfect example of this is the title track from her latest CD “Like Glass” on Kopaesthetics. Just listen.  You’ll love it!” - Johnny Mandel
