Teaching since:

I am a vocals, piano and music instructor currently working with 7-Grammy-Award winner producer Gordon Williams (Amy Winehouse, Lauryn Hill...) at our studios located in the Manhattan Center, NYC. I am specialised in modern singing (pop, soul, RnB, jazz and all urban music). I coach young artists and help them find their voice, prepare for auditions (the Voice), live performances, get ready to record in the studio, understand the basics of song-writing, or help attain a better level and simply enjoy singing.
I also teach piano, with a very modern and fun approach so students get to play their favorite songs right away.
My classes are always laid back as I believe the main thing is to enjoy music and have fun while learning! I will accompany you through your musical dreams, and help with each step of the way!

Dee is a great teacher! She's been teaching piano to two sisters I babysit for, for over a year (current ages are 10 and 12). She got them back into enjoying piano after other teachers had bored them to death with drills, scales, and songs they hated.
Dee keeps the lessons fun with current music but is also great at instilling the foundation for reading music, playing chords, etc. She is talented, cool, and I fully recommend her as teacher for any age child or adult!
