My approach to teaching my students how to sing is to make sure they feel comfortable each moment of the way while implementing challenges that will allow them to grow as artist! I give my students the option to pick a song of their choice that they would like to work on and then I will pick a song for them that I feel will help them meet theirs goals as singers!
I love everything about teaching! I love music; it is my life. I sleep, breathe and dream music. I am a Columbia University Chicago graduate; I graduated with a degree in Music with a concentration in Classical Voice. I have performed in numerous operas and musicals, as well as, sung on Gospel Cruises all around the world. In my eyes, the student is the main focus so whatever issues, concerns or request the student may have I will treat them with priority. I am all about strengthening the natural born talent and making my students the best vocalist they can be. I'm here to serve the students and that is what I will do until they are confident in their gift...music.
*** Lesson Details *** I take music very seriously but at the same time I like my lessons to be fun and a joyous experience. I am very patient and helpful with any strugg
les that may seem too hard to the student. I will start my students off with the basic vocal warm ups and then move on to material that they would like to cover and if so the student doesn't have material to cover, I will present them with material. Being a singer is not easy at all, so I will challenge my students by giving exercises that challenge them to sing for proficient. I will also bring in material that is brand new and ask the students questions about the piece. The student is in the lesson to learn everything about music, so any type of material that I feel will benefit them and help them move closer to their goal, I will definitely present to them. After 3 to 6 months students will be able to sing in the 3 minor keys and the major key. The student will also have knowledge and know how to sing at least 3 different modes. The singer will know how to read basic sheet music and perform it with solfege. The singer will also have 4 songs of my choice or their choice mastered and ready to perform in front of an audience. Lastly, the singer will have knowledge of proper breath control while performing, usage of a microphone, and intonation.
*** Studio Equipment *** Piano/ Keyboard Music Stand Water
*** Specialties *** I specialize in classical, gospel and R and B singing.
I could not have found a better acting instructor.

Keanon is a GREAT teacher/artist/musician/mentor
I've been working with Keanon for almost a year now. Aside from being an amazing vocalist himself, he does everything he can to help students reach their full potential and find their voice. He makes lessons fun while constantly keeping you challenged. There's always encouragement from him to strive to be better, which can really bring the best out of singers. Whether you're simply singing for hobby, performing for shows/auditions, or ready to record, Keanon has something to offer to any aspiring musician. He has a passion and love for music and understands it's a gift that must be shared with the world.
Whether your goals are for personal enrichment or professional growth, your lesson will be personalized according to what's important to you. I LOVE to teach, and appreciate my wee ones just as much as my elders...those who consider themselves "tone deaf" as much as my advanced students. As far as Special Needs go - I feel we *ALL* have special needs....every child and every adult! ;)
As the creator and producer of San Diego IndieFest and Say It Records, I have a unique understanding of the industry, and love to share that with my students.
Hello Students / Parents!
I specialize in providing a safe, fun and empowering space for each student to reach their goals - whether that be for the novice whose been wrongfully told they shouldn't pursue their passion, the more experienced musician/actor/poet/speaker looking to do more, or the budding artist looking to develop the talent and vision within them. I'm fluent in English and Spanish and have experience singing and recording in many languages.
I always remember the inspiration and patience I received from my best teachers, so I strive to provide exactly that to my own students. I sing and teach most vocal styles, with the exception of opera and screamo, and utilize my studio to create a supportive, non-judgemental experience singing, acting, speaking, writing and recording. I absolutely love teaching both children and ad
ults and look forward to learning how to best support each one of my students in their individual path toward realizing their potential.
Here's a bit about my background and musical experience:
Bachelors of Fine Arts degree (Theatre/Voice) from United States International University Graduated Valedictorian Chula Vista School of Creative and Performing Arts Graduated Valedictorian Workshops and studies with Directors, Voice and Acting Teachers Bill Doyle, Roy Mote, Andrew Barnicle, Jack Tygett, Leanne Summers, Anne Farnsworth, among others.
"After seeing Danielle, I was impressed with her intensity as a performer. Her ability to get behind a lyric was stunning, she lives every line. As an artistic performer, I've yet to see better." -Tony Ferguson / Interscope Records: No Doubt, Bush, Fisher
My original band, Danielle and The Masses, has been recording and performing since 2001. We are endorsed by Justin Tranter, Ani Difranco, The Black Eyed Peas, The Bruce Hornsby Band, among others, and have shared the stage with Jamie Foxx, CAKE, Metric, En Vogue, David Byrne, Berlin, Margaret Cho, Cyndi Lauper, Jonatha Brooke, Beth Hart, Semi Precious Weapons and more.
I have written and performed music and voice over for Ace Ventura, Nutty Professor, VH1, various TV shows and independent documentaries, Eveoke Dance Theatre, among others, and have recorded eight professional CDs of various styles on various record labels.
For over fifteen years, my record / production company, Say It Records has been producing socially conscious music events throughout San Diego and Southern California that promote independent music, film, art, community, human and environmental rights. I also co-own Durga Sound, a teaching and production studio, with producer Alicia Champion. The two of us created and produced San Diego IndieFest for over ten years, a powerful community event promoting and supporting independent music, film, art and civic engagement.
I have a great time utilizing my contacts in the industry to help my students get work/ press / entrance into the schools, agencies and studios of their choice. For example, we were able to book many musicians on the TV show GLEE, among others, as well as help students get their music placed in commercials, film and the like.
*** Lesson Details *** I start on the first lesson by becoming clear about what the new student's goals and desires are from there, we start developing technique to achieve those goals along with having fun right away doing what they came for - singing, writing, voice over, acting or using a combination of these things be it for professional purposes or personal fulfillment. Every lesson is personally customized to meet the specific goals of each student. As a teacher, I'm encouraging and fun, passionate and positive. While I'm definitely not "strict", I do appreciate focus and drive. However, I often work with people who have special needs and are working on developing those very things. I'm especially good at helping people through progress plateaus, roadblocks, stage fright, loss/ stress. Using music as a means of release and healing - for both kids and adults - is something I do a lot of and am very comfortable with.
As far as technique is concerned, I focus on utilizing posture, correct breathing and developing relaxed, strong support, so that the muscles are developed properly. We want the voice to develop without stress, enabling the student to constantly grow while steering clear of any injury that can happen as a result of straining, not to mention other habits that manifest when we sing without proper technique.
I strongly encourage students to record their lessons on a mobile device so they can practice easily on their own, and so they eventually have a record of how far they've grown. We mostly use tracks to develop repertoire, prepare for auditioning and performances, and to have fun singing the music that excites each student the most.

*** Specialties *** Using music, writing and voice as a means of expressing yourself, growing as a performance artist, coping in challenging times, as well as a means of going professional and earning income are all areas I specialize in. Utilizing proper technique and learning how to sing / speak safely is also an area I focus on a great deal.
Learning precisely what each student wants is the key factor in my decision on how to achieve their goals. For example, using Speech Level Singing is definitely entrenched in my teaching, but I may not highlight it as much for those who want a more classical sound.
I excel with the following: first timers, very young kids, students working through stage fright, artists looking to develop their own original project, those seeking growth in their process of writing / recording / performing, those who are interested in using music and / or writing as therapy as well as with amateurs who've always wanted to do something musical but who think they are "too old" or too "untalented/short/tall/ fill in the blank" to try. I believe we all have something to say with our lives - finding the voice within you can be an incredibly powerful and transformative experience!
Ms. Danielle is a wonderful / excellent instructor. I booked 10 sessions with Ms. Danielle for vocal training and it was worth every dollar. I am singing this week at a big event, and because of Ms. Danielle vocal training, I am prepared to sing three back to back songs with the strongest voice ever!!!! Ms. Danielle doesn't know it yet, but I do plan to make her my life vocal coach.
March 7, 2019
The rating says it all. Best. Instructor. Ever. Danielle is amazing. She's so patient and kind and loving. Half the reason I take lessons from her is because she makes me feel so good about myself. She's so much more than a singing teacher. She's a creative guide. She will help you move beyond self doubt and explore your creativity. And of course, my rhythm and pitch are improving rapidly. Can't recommend her enough!
November 10, 2018
I enjoy my first lesson with Ms. Danielle. She is a great singing coach. I am looking forward to learning great singing skills from this instructor.
Group and individual lessons available; basics for healthy singing, choral and solo singing
Hillary C. has been singing since joining the Sunrise Singers in elementary school. While singing in various choral groups, she also took private lessons to develop proper vocal technique. Her own students will appreciate the classical training she received as well as musical theater styles she has learned over the years.
At Washington and Lee University, Hillary participated in University Chorus, Chamber Singers, an a cappella group, and performed in musicals on stage. She studied music history, performance, and theory. Hillary earned a Bachelor of Arts in Music, Vocal Production and received the Choral Award upon graduation. She has performed with the St. Louis Symphony Chorus, Dallas Symphony Chorus, and Incarnation church choir.
Hillary also studied piano for seven years during which time she won theory awards and was the star
pupil of her studio. She recently began a piano pedagogy class for continuing education credit.
Students under Hillary's tutelage can expect to gain an appreciation for classic works, learn basic music theory and ear training, and understand proper keyboard or vocal technique. She believes success comes from loving music and working hard to perform well.
Hillary is such a positive person and was so patient with my first time singer.

Hillary was very good with my 4 year old. He was reluctant at first, but she was able to bring him around and he ended up loving his lesson. He was so happy he called daddy and grandma on the way home to tell them about it.

LOVE Kiki! Couldn't ask for a better match. Just one lesson and I can hear the improvements. Excellent technique and fun instructions, can't wait for the next lesson.
I will help you access a freely produced sound while teaching basic vocal techniques to help you communicate artistically. All styles of music welcomed.
I am a classically trained singer having sung professionally in various styles of music from Opera, a capella, Mariachi, Broadway to Jazz and Barbershop.
In Private voice lessons my intention is to help you reach your goals while helping you access a freely produced sound. I also teach vocal techniques that will provide you with tools for expressive singing. This is applied to a variety of music styles and is a way for your artistic aesthetic to develop and grow organically.
For children, I provide group classes to gain music literacy and musicianship skills in a supportive environment. This may be applied to solo singing as well. I usually place a student in a private lesson setting from middle school aged kids through adulthood. Any child younger than this should be learning in a group setting for fundamental music literacy befo
re taking on the voice as a solo instrument. In my many years of teaching there have been very few exceptions to this rule.
As a trained singer, I can coach in the styles of Musical Theatre, pop, folk, jazz...I was trained classically so no matter what style you're singing, I focus on proper technique (breath support, phrasing, healthy belt, head voice, etc) to make sure you stay in the best vocal shape possible!

Every voice is a unique "living instrument", strongly influenced by so many physical, emotional and psychological factors. In my classes I love to help students exploring their own voice beyond the simple concept of learning a melody and repeating it, showing them how to use their instrument at its full potential of musical expression. I like to teach the technique together with the interpretation, going through every musical style, pop, rock, R&B, soul, country, you name it! I firmly believe that there is something to learn from every genre, and I think that the listening process is an essential step to find our own personal voice. Throughout my career I worked with students of all ages, from 5 to over 60 years old, with different levels of music preparation, from complete amateurs to professional singers.
I'm a singer-songwriter, voice teacher and Berklee College of Music alumni. I started my career in Italy, winning national competitions like the Tour Music Fest, and participating to the first edition of the talent show “The X-Factor”. I graduated at the University of Pisa in “Music, Cinema and Theatre” and I also have a diploma in “Modern singing” at the Lizard Academy of Florence, and one in “Performance” at the CET (Centro Europeo di Toscolano), one of the most prestigious music schools in Italy.
I worked as a voice teacher in music academies and high schools both in Italy and in the Boston area (Cambridge arts Academy, The Conservatory at Highlands, Plugged In Band Program, Musician's Playground). My original music project is called Perfect Mark, my first album is titled “Flesh & Voice”, for which I wrote, arranged and produced all
Learning to sing means learning about yourself and your own voice, which is a unique instrument. There are so many different techniques out there, and my job is to use exercises to guide you through the discovery of your own personal sound: Understanding your breath support, different registers, expanding your range, use of dynamics, improvisation, understanding vocal styles of different genres, etc.
If you are a singer songwriter, I love working on original music, as well as coaching during studio sessions.
Marco is a very thoughtful, attentive, and experienced vocal coach. I've started to become a lot more aware of how to delivery songs through my voice. Highly recommended!

Was quickly able to find areas of improvement and provide excersises to fix the issues.

First of all, Marco is a tremendous singer and musical artist, as evidenced by his amazing vocals and songwriting in his original music. He has years of experience singing and performing professionally, and it shows.
Even more importantly, Marco is a spectacular teacher. He is a student of the voice and knows more about the anatomy of singing than anyone I've ever met. He can describe where you should place your sound, pinpoint how your body is affecting your voice, and immediately show you several exercises that target your specific challenge spots.
Marco has also helped me improve so much as a performer and musician; he has challenged me to sing songs that are slightly out of my comfort zone and given me countless tips on how to pay homage to an artist when covering them while still making the song my own. Finally, he has also helped me develop my own musical style as a cover artist and original artist.
"Great teacher that provides practical guidance and training that can be implemented."
"Very Fun & Knows what he's doing!
I've only had a couple lessons so far & i am impressed at what my voice can do! He's very patient & understanding, does
nt matter what level you're at, he'll work with you & help you find your strengths and weaknesses. I've enjoyed every lesson so far & i lool forward to learning more each time!"
"The lessons were for my daughter and we were thrilled with Stacey. She went above and beyond."
"Wonderful first lessons. Solid tips that I have been able to put to work right away!"
"My teen son has been working with Mia for about a year. Wow. It has been a fabulous experience, he has learned a ton, Broadway, Pop, A Capella, Musical Th
eater. My son loves Mia, she is fun, works him hard but not too hard and is very supportive, knows her business."
"Katie is an upbeat, happy, skilled and intuitive teacher and mentor."
"Tim was very knowledgable and patient with my son."
"Ronnie is a great teacher. He really cares for his students, and will do anything to help you get to where you want to go with your musical goals. I am
keeping Ronnie as a teacher long-term - I will be buying more lessons from him now."
"My daughter started taking online signing lessons with Asuka a few weeks ago and we have seen dramatic improvements in her voice. Asuka was able to guide
my daughter away from singing in a way that would potentially damage her voice towards a strong technique with a beautiful tone. Her voice is now well supported and getting better every week. My daughter really adores Asuka as she is really easy to get along with and is great with kids."
If you really want to make your mark in the music industry, presenting a distinct style - something that will set you apart and make an impression - is a big part of the package. Here, Antioch, TN voice teacher Erica S. shares a few valuable tips...
For most singers and actors, making a living out of your talent is the ultimate goal. In order to be a professional, we must treat our talent as a business. We may not be marketing experts because we spend most of our time in the practice ro …
