I am passionate about helping people of all ages to develop their singing talents! I am a classically trained singer and a certified K-12 music teacher. I have a Bachelor's degree in Voice and Music Education from the Hartt School, and a Master's degree in Early Music/voice from the Longy School of Music of Bard College.
I take an individualized and exploratory approach to teaching singing; I believe that students get the best results when they have an equal part in improving their skills through self-reflection, critical thinking, and practice.
In addition to building a private studio, I am on the voice faculty at the Hartt School Community Division, where I teach students ages 9 through adult, and I teach voice to non-music-majors at the University of St. Joseph.

· Singing · In studio Dana is great! I was so nervous and she put me right at ease and made the lesson a lot of fun. She is very patient and knowledgeable and I highly recommend her!
· Singing · In studio I've only had the privilege of working with Dana for 3 months, but have already noticed great improvement in my voice! She is patient and understanding, while still keeping students focused and motivated, offering encouragement along the way. She is incredibly knowledgable and thinks it's important to share the "why" behind the "what" so that her students are really using their voices properly. It has been more than a decade since my last formal singing experience, and my time with Dana has helped me access better technique than I've ever had, which has given me a huge confidence boost. I would absolutely recommend Dana to anyone looking to improve vocally!!
