Donielle is truly gifted; a genuine artist on and off the stage. Her musicality allows her to flow effortlessly whether in a sacred music/worship format, or during a professional performance. Her understanding of Music Theory allows her to communicate clearly with other musicians and effectively with her students. Donielle's friendly and inviting attitude also make her a pleasure to work with and create with. She's the best!

I really appreciate Donielle's approach to teaching music. She's very relatable and makes things very simple to understand. If you have trouble with music theory or are beginning to get into performing, Donielle is definitely a good instructor to hire. I've learned a lot about stage etiquette, singing and basic music theory from her.

About Judi
Hi everyone! I've been teaching in a variety of areas for many years in many different respects. I teach voice lessons, and audition coaching. I've been doing that for a long time! During my "day-job" years, I was an analyst, and I'm especially skilled with Microsoft Excel. And I LOVE teaching people how to make magic on that program. I have done projects that included creating databases, training departments on the use of said databases, taught entire departments at Jet Propulsion Laboratory how to migrate to Microsoft Outlook from (the archaic) Eudora.

My musical talents run parallel with my affinity for numbers. In my life, it has manifested in music composition, arranging, and musical direction. And, of course, PERFORMANCE! I've performed in and around the Los Angeles area for many years. I own a professional Christmas Caroling co
mpany that I direct and sing in as well. So I'm a performer, and a small business owner! So come see what I can offer!

I thought I was pretty good at excel! Well, Judi was able to show me that I was only using 10% of my Excel brain. I had NO idea what I could do with Excel to make my life easier until I learned from Judi. I'm sure I will be using her again! Thanks!!!

I hadn't had a voice lesson in more than 15 years, but in one session Judi got me prepped for an audition by helping me to determine range, song selection & presentation. Who says you can't circle back on a dream? Judi gave me the confidence to do just that.
