Overview

I hold a Master's in Voice Performance degree from University of New Orleans and Bachelor of Science degree in Voice Performance from State Music Academy, Sofia, Bulgaria.
In 2001, I toured with International European Opera Company which performed numerous times in Denmark, France, Italy and USA.
I currently perform and teach in the New Orleans area and love to share my knowledge and experience with my students. There is so much more to performance then just beautiful vocalizing.....

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching is based on my own personal, classical training from Europe and North America. Whether it's opera, oratorio, musical theater or pop-style singing that is desired, I believe that classical technique is an essential source of proper singing that can be used to train singers of all genres.
Lessons are tailored to the student's individual goals and abilities. Music history and theory, as well as vocalization, posture, breathing, diction, tone production, and general technique are incorporated into each lesson.
In addition, the students also participate in performance master classes and recitals, learning stage presence and concert etiquette.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music studio room, 2 full size keyboards, music stands, book shelf, desk, parking lots (free).

*** Specialties ***
Classical, Music Theater, Jazz

Rated 5 out of 5 by Phenomenal She's absolutely amazing I couldn't ask for a better teacher she communicates in such a strong way with her student that it's unbelievable I will continue to keep using her as my vocal coach no matter where I end up in my music career. February 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb. Denise is not only a joy to be around but a true talent as a teacher, a singer, and a great friend to have. If I had the time I would take twice the lessons with Denise that I take now. Since we have been working together my voice is like a whole new instrument, I can't wait to see how she will help me progress further as we move into the future. February 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful Teacher Denise not only has a beautiful voice, but a passion for teaching. She challenges my daughter to do her best, and improve every week. She has high standards, but knows how to encourage instead of discourage her students. We strongly recommend Denise if you are serious about learning how to sing! December 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent and Patient Teacher Denise is an excellent teacher. She is tremendously patient and wonderful to work with. December 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pure Passion Denise has been an inspiration to me. I have only been taking lessons for four months and I already feel more confident in my ability to actually sing than I ever have. She is not an "easy" teacher. If you just want to take lessons but not really work at being your best I recommend finding someone else. She has challenged me to become better every week. Her passion for singing is a beautiful thing and it brings out the best in everyone it touches. November 17, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product Denise is my first professional voice teacher that I have ever had. She has instilled in me the confidence to allow myself to learn and grow. I have been taking lessons for almost two years, and I have grown tremendously. I would and have recommended her to others for those who want a professional who is passionate about music.
