About Alicia

I received a bachelor's in Music at Adrian College in May, 2013. I have been playing violin for many years and have performed with several orchestras including the Adrian Symphony Orchestra. I have also performed for several weddings, benefit events and recitals. On top of performing, I have been teaching lessons for five years and really enjoying working with my students. It is really rewarding for me to see my students improve and work to achieve their goals. Sharing my passion for music, especially violin, is my goal as a tutor and I look forward working with new students!

Playing piano after 2 lessons

I am learning how to read notes and understanding how music is written along with timing and playing. I am very happy to be able to sit at my piano which I never played before and actually play simple songs using both hands after two sessions. Thank you!!

About Kathryn

I am a singer with over 10 years of classical training and have been teaching voice for several years. I have performed in opera, oratorio, musical theater, jazz, folk and Irish ensembles. I can teach repertoire in French, German, Italian and Irish Gaelic. I can also teach beginning piano which is great for some of the younger students who aren't ready for full voice lessons and want to combine both.
I have years of experience singing professionally. I have been lucky enough to tour North America, Asia and Europe with different Irish groups form small bands to performing 8 shows a week in the touring company of the Broadway show Riverdance.
Singing is a huge part of who I am, I have been doing it since before I can remember and I love sharing what I have learned with my ...

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!
