Daniela was great at helping my daughter feel more comfortable during her first lesson. She was very knowledgeable and gave really good advice to take home and work on.
Vidita S.
Daniela was very patient with my child. My daughter was a little nervous but Daniela made her comfortable and boosted her confidence.
Tammy F.
Daniela is wonderful and our lessons are always fun. She lets me play pieces that I enjoy plus introduces me to new music that she believes I will also enjoy. She allows me to play freely but will correct my mistakes (wrong fingering :). But this only make me a better player and learning a new piece easier. As an adult learner I cannot say enough good things about her and her style. I really enjoy my lessons with her and I highly recommend her.

"I found Kelly to be a total professional in teaching. Prompt, educated and well versed in the principals of the flute.
She also was competent in the composition I had requested insight on, the Poulenc Sonata for flute, which is not an easy piece to play.
If you are intermediate to early advanced you will not go wrong or left wanting.
Highly recommend for beginner to early advanced level teaching."

"I cannot recommend anyone more incredible both as a singer and teacher, but more so someone who will bring your voice to new heights almost instantaneously other than LORI ANN.
For over 10 years, Lori Ann helped me learn the music, language, etc for several complicated operatic roles I learned in Russian, Italian, French and German. She grew my voice to new Heights and without her training, I would not have had the singing opportunities I did.

Lori Ann herslf is a mainstage performer with the Los Angeles Opera, having won a Grammy for her role with them in "The Ghosts of Versailles. "

She is warm and friendly and truly throws herself into making you successful at your craft. You never feel like any time is wasted."
