I am a professional opera singer and current music teacher here through TakeLessons and in California. I have trained and performed in some of the most prestigious opera houses in the country. I do love performing but once I found teaching I realized how much joy I got from helping my students achieve their goals no matter how grand or how small. My honest opinion is that anyone can sing and that all should be given the opportunity to try!
As a vocal student, we will discuss what your goals are for our lessons together and what you hope to achieve in the long run. Students can expect improvements every week as you build upon the techniques and exercises I give you. I teach students to improve their breathing and tone production using the classical vocal technique and from there we will work on style and phrasing and overall performance of your piece. One common goal is to create a repertoire of songs that the student can call upon at any time to sing with ease.
Don't hesitate to ask if you would like to see my professional bio to get a better grasp of where I have worked in the country and the world.
My passions are Disney music, Broadway both classic and new, Opera, Pop, Contemporary Music, and really anything that can get your heart racing when you sing it. So let us get started on our musical journey! Looking forward to meeting you and to helping you unlock the singer you always had inside you.
At this location, I teach music and voice as well as public speaking and diction. I am in charge of both group classes and private voice lessons.
I am happy to receive new students through the school however as I work there as a contractor there will be a fee for going through the third party of the school.

Miss D'Ana is an amazing opera singer and she is so kind and helpful. She has lots of experience and really knows how to build a voice. Take lessons with her and you'll certainly begin to notice your voice improving. She teaches you how to sing and how to master your stage presence. I highly recommend her!+ Read More
