I've been teaching voice lessons for 11 years and my students have excelled at auditions and contests. Within the first few lessons, you will likely have an increased range and vocal stability and as time goes on you'll be able to follow your dreams. I specialize in Broadway, Opera, and Arts songs. I assign music based on level, ability, technical challenges, and the students likes. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Piano is a great tool for a singer and 15 minute beginning level piano can be added to any half hour lesson.

I start taking singing lesson with Dana from last may, she's kind and encouraging. In the first lesson I was always thinking of my pitch which goes really strange, and I was so scared of my own voice that for several times I could not sing properly. She encouraged me a lot and always helpful when it comes to technical difficulties. I learned a lot from her.

I enrolled my grandson for his first piano lesson with Dana and was very pleased with her. She was so professional while at the same time really setting my 10 year old grandson at ease. He loved it and can't wait to return. Thank you Dana.

Outstanding value. This is high level, professional instruction. Dana has been able to get my daughter to places in a few short months that we didn't reach in years with other instructors. With four kids, I have paid for a lot of coaching and instruction over the years - with out question Dana is at the top.

Dana is the best singing instructors around. She is very good with my granddaughter and has taught her a lot in the past few months. Dana is very understanding and encouraging. She is absolutely loved by my granddaughter and my granddaughter just loves her lessons with Dana. Dana is just a super person, with a lot of talent she passes on to her students.
