My name is Shera Haase, and I’m one of the instructors at UP Music. I’m looking forward to helping your students explore and discover their own love for music!
What was your first experience in music?
My first experience with music was singing in church, and singing to Disney Movies.
What instruments do you play, and which one is your primary expertise?
My main instrument is voice, and I play piano, and ukulele.
Have you performed professionally or collaborated with any notable musicians or
I was a professional singer in Branson MO, for four years, and I did three national tours with
The Missoula Children’s Theatre.
Can you share any success stories or testimonials from your previous students?
I had a special needs student that overcame their stage fright and other challenges to perform
in our school musical.
If money was no option, what dream vacation would you go on?
I’d love to travel the world! I think my first stop would be Salzburg Austria. I’ve always
wanted to go there ever since I saw The Sound of Music.
What do you do when you’re not teaching?
I am new to the Chicago area, so I like to be a tourist in my own city. I love live shows,
museums, karaoke, and the restaurant scene!
