Ms. Danielle was an awesome teacher! I used to have a very tense voice with a short range. Ms. Danielle helped me release that tension, expand my vocal range, and even helped me discover that I was counter tenor. When it came time to pick songs to work on to increase my repertoire, she picked songs that provided enough of a challenge to make me use all she taught me, but not so much that the song became impossible. Ms. Danielle also gave great advice when I was auditioning for various singing groups and helped me work on my audition pieces, helping me with both my singing, as well as my acting. Most importantly, Ms. Danielle became a true friend. I have never had such a close relationship with a teacher. I trusted her with secrets that only she and my family knows about. She gave great advice on life as well as the performing arts and always cheered me up when I was feeling down. I am truly lucky to have met her. If you are looking for a great teacher who will also become one of your closest friends, Ms. Danielle is the person for you.

Danielle is the best!! My daughter is a classically trained singer who has taken voice lessons from the best, and while I have never really had lessons before becoming Danielle's student at 48, I was well versed in what to look for in a voice teacher. However, I was nervous that I wouldn't be able to learn anything. I'd had a lesson once before with a teacher my daughter learned quite a bit from; and had NO idea what the teacher was trying to explain; every now and then I'd so something right, but it was sheer luck because I happen to be able to sing naturally! Danielle was amazing with me as a non-traditional student; she was so helpful, encouraging and most important, knowledgeable!! She was able to explain concepts quite foreign to me in a way I could understand and apply. She is very fun, energetic all while keeping you on task. With Danielle, I learned that you CAN teach an old dog new tricks!!! If she hadn't moved so far, I would still be with her today!! While I haven't continued with lessons, I still practice the techniques she taught me and have a better understanding of my voice as an instrument!

I also witnessed the amazing progress that her more traditional young students achieved while working with her at my daughters school. Kids who had a nice voice and could carry a tune, but I wouldn't say could actually sing well, Danielle turned into legit singers; I saw this with both male and female vocalists.

Whether you are a young student interested in classical training, musical theater, or just an old dog looking to improve your singing, I would highly recommend Danielle to help take you to the next level!
