About Cara Isadora

Hi there! My name is Cara. I am an award winning vocalist and experienced performer who loves to teach singing. My goal is to demystify vocal technique for students and help them “find their voice" pretty quickly with patience and care in a safe and friendly environment. In a relaxed, positive, and

I wrote the review below because I was mad at her for personal reasons... Shes actually a great teacher. Sorry Cara
Estevan
DO NOT! I REPEAT DO NOT take opera vocal lessons from her. She learned from someone who cant even sing. She actually believes falsetto is unhealthy and I spent years avoiding the best part of my voice due to her misinformation. Any look at vocal pedagogy will confirm that falsetto is indeed a healthy voice mechanism used to develop a strong voice especially in tenors and she has chosen to be willfully ignorant due to either bad teaching or just not caring. Wolf in sheep's clothing people. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!

She's a wonderful teacher! Very caring and patient but to the point. She knows her stuff!

Danielle is amazing and helped me make some big changes in 4-weeks. If you are willing to put in the work and take direct feedback you should definitely book sessions with her!
Douglas
Danielle is top notch. She brings so much experience, training, and talent to the table, finding new ways to help get to the root of the conversation. She helped me realize new potential by looking for ways to find my true, authentic voice. I cannot recommend her highly enough!
Ivan
Danielle is a fantastic actor and coach! I've had the pleasure of sharing a stage with her and working with her as my acting coach for many years. Her approach to material helps to simplify the (seemingly) most complicated scenes. Her focus on naturalistic acting and "in the moment" spontaneity is exactly what every actor--at any level--needs to make their work real and full of life.

Specific & clear in her instructions, open to feedback, patient and encouraging, courteous and respectful - not to mention a great singer. Looking forward to future lessons with Deborah.
Jeeyun
I was pretty nervous about taking a singing lesson, as it's something I've never done in my life. I'm so thankful I got connected to Deborah. She's a fantastic teacher and taught me so much about how our body works to produce sounds when singing and what I am doing. From the first lesson I was already given helpful tips and ways to practice things on my own! I'm looking forward to more lessons with Deborah.

After 3 years of a extremely bad brake up with musical theatre. It was really nice to be back at it and Carolyn made me feel comfortable enough to actually take my first dance lesson in 4 years.
Paul H.
i have been working with Carolyn for the past couple of years and she is excellent. Clearly very skilled and a very experienced teacher. Very patient as well, especially when I have not had much time to practice. She totally understands I have work commitments that take priority.
I enjoy every lesson and I am so pleased that I can pick up music scores and play with confidence. I thoroughly enjoy each class.

6 Mistakes You’re Making on Your Acting Resume

Professional actors often can’t help but feel a little powerless when it comes to the process of auditioning and booking jobs. Sure, from the outside people think that actors have some say in creative aspects, but your input and personal preferences are really quite insignificant in the process (well, not until you're on a Brangelina level at least). So while you're on your way to superstardom, it's smart to leverage the opportunities at hand. The first area you have control of as an actor is …
