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.
