Excellent vocal instructor & coach

Mariana has been a consistently impressive instructor over the past year. She has shown that she can identify improvements for her students in a surprisingly accurate and quick manner. A year later, I still rely on her tips in performance scenarios and when just sitting at home practicing.

When I first started taking lessons with Mariana, I was bad...real bad. Now I am considerably better and that feedback is from very honest (and very forward) friends of mine!! I am thankful for the fact that Mariana does not let my mistakes go unnoticed and works with me to correct them. It should be noted that she has an incredibly polite delivery when identifying mistakes and offering improvement tips. This is something I don't personally need but is so out of the ordinary for instructors that I feel it deserves recognition.

I would highly recommend Mariana to any type of student singing in any genre. She is very big on the fundamentals but understands a person's musical style and goals so she tailors her lessons to fit the student. Whether it be critique of a recording or an in person lesson - Mariana’s teaching style, polite delivery and accuracy of improvement areas lead to a shorter time frame for a student to reach their goals.

I have been able to teach myself every instrument I've put my hands on (5 so far). From the perspective of someone who has very high expectations of myself and my music...I would not have been able to get where I am vocally without her.

Awesome teacher for kids!

My daughter has always loved to sing and at 8 yrs old was ready for some training. Mariana has been very patient, gentle, and encouraging to her-never pushing her past her comfort. My daughter is not normally shy, but she cares so much about singing that she was a bit nervous in her first lessons. She just had her third lesson and was able to really open up and sing. Mariana praised her and was able to encourage her to let go and not worry about a mistake! I think the best compliment you can give a teacher is to listen to the child talk about her lesson all afternoon and share with everyone she can find what she learned and her "real voice" Mariana also works very hard to explain in kid terms what she is teaching and how to warm up. I have sung all my life, but never had any training. Im learning right along with my daughter and it has been an amazing experience. Im really glad to have this opportunity to work with Mariana.

Singing Lessons

I'm a beginner, and mainly enjoy singing at my own leisure. I came to take lessons without a background of music, solely with the intent to learn more about my potential in singing that Mariana has helped me expound on. She has taught me so much that I feel more confident in my ability to perform. I now know proper techniques and weaknesses to improve on that only an instructor is able to point out in person. She's a very kind, patient teacher, and broke lessons down to detail. I would love to work with her again in the future and recommend Mariana to any and all levels of people who are passionate about singing.

Djenane S. Saint Paul, MN

As a Spanish teacher, the curriculum I use, is content-enriched, meaning that I integrate learning of a specific subject area with language development so that language is acquired in a meaningful context. I use instructional techniques appropriate for children. My teaching philosophy: 98-100% use of the Spanish language. Activities that encourage learning through active participation, including singing, dancing, movement, role-playing, games, stories, arts and crafts.

D’jenane S. is an exemplary performing artist and educator. D’jenane was a Mentor Artist at Youth in Arts for over two years, teaching about the culture, dance and music of her native Haiti in both long and short-term residencies.

D’jenane also performed in our Assembly programs, bringing her internationally acclaimed troupe from Haiti to celebrate and honor the traditions of her culture. The opening ceremony of her Haitian Festival was held at Youth in Arts Gallery along with her costumes, photos and video of dance performances.

Youth in Arts is one of the leading arts education provider in the Northern California. Our mission is to provide the community with high quality experiences and instruction in the visual and performing arts. Youth in Arts’ programs are based upon the belief that a child’s balanced development and education must include the arts.

I served as D’jenane’s Supervisor and found her to be a remarkable educator and artist always willing to learn and grow. As a Mentor Artist she received consistently positive teacher evaluations. Teachers, administrators and students have loved working with her.

We received two consecutive California Arts Council grants to support D’jenane and honor her high quality artistic technique and knowledge. She is both a talented performer and educator. D’jenane’s manner and excellent artistry entrances teachers and students alike. Her technique and encouragement allows room for growth, creativity and unique self-expression.

D’jenane has continually proved to be an excellent collaborator, artist and leader, devoted to student success while accommodating various learning modalities. We miss her!

Djenane is an excellent Haitian dance teacher with lots of technique and exuberance. She empowers people to do their best and feel good dancing.
She teaches the history, songs, and culture of Haiti with joy and you want to learn more with each class. My life has been enriched through Djenane's work and her family is just as inspirational. Do yourself a favor and take her classes you will be glad you did.

Cheyenne is a former employee of mine at a Huntington Learning Center. She worked as an ACT and SAT tutor. I found her to be outstanding in her knowledge of the content and the test structure. More importantly, she is the type of individual who has a knack for finding ways to explain things in meaningful ways to students of all capacities. She always found a way to convey material in interesting, relatable ways to her students and always kept them engaged.

ACT Test Prep · In studio
Cheyenne and I really connected... we're more than just a tutor and a student, we're friends... but she still teaches me a lot and knows how to be both a tutor and a friend, which is what I need. So many tutors are SO dry and boring but Cheyenne is not. Before working with Cheyenne I worked with 3 other tutors, and she is the first one that actually helped me improve my ACT score, because I can actually stay awake when she's talking.

I am really a smart person, I just didn't do my homework and failed Chemistry last year. I came to Cheyenne to retake it and she helped me pass it with an A! I was really having trouble understanding stoichiometry and organic chemistry but Cheyenne was really good at teaching it and now I totally get it.
