What can I say about Yaminah. She is easily one of best instructors I have ever had. I have had lots of instructors in different disciplines but accross the board she is the best. I take hip-hop with Yaminah and she is a phenomenal dancer and teacher. I am learning so much and improving so fast thanks to her fun style and professionalism.

"Danielle is the most professional instructor I have worked with in a long time. Going way beyond musical instruction, of which she is a master. She also listened carefully to my needs and custom develops her approach so I could meet my goal. I am an aspiring public speaker and minister in training and she helped me prepare for my Inaugural Sermon. We did warm ups, opened up my vocal range, determined what my rage was. Improved my breathing techniques and gave me plenty to do on my own, not holding back on what it will take to be successful. She even helped me edit my sermons to meet my time requirements once I had gotten hold of her techniques. Danielle maximizes your time to your advantage and is an Awesome Instructor that I would highly recommend!"
