About Danny V.

Danny is a voice development/performance coach, recording artist, singer, published songwriter and motivational speaker. Danny has to work in professional acting, singing with various local bands, improvisation live, acapella groups.

Danny has been a voice teacher since 1999 and has learned that the best way to develop a voice is by isolating a vocalists range and working as a team to strengthen what needs developmental work and also reinforcing long-term knowledge of longevity.

There is no one size fits all. Each student has a custom plan developed on day one with timelines and short/long-term goals. Think of it as personal training, but for the voice. There are areas to think about;

-Blending
-Range
-Control
-Riffs and Runs
-Multiple registers and how to use each one
-How to transition between vocal registers
-How to sing around vocal break (Passagio)
-Vocal mixing
-Twang
Each technique can be demonstrated and taught by your instructor in a gradual progression.

These classes are best suited for students who are goal-oriented and who already have proficient knowledge of singing/vocal technique as a recommendation.

My First lesson was outstanding, we picked up and move pretty wuick. Taught me about the voice and how it works, Danny is very adaptable to your needs and knows how to find your sweet spot. Great motivator as well. Highly recommended.

This was a great lesson. He knows his stuff and can really develop a person. I did 20 minute lessons to start, but honestly the more time you can the better. He taught me way more than I expected I could learn, but I could tell there's so much more he can do with more time. My lesson was as long as it took to drive there but it was worth it even for how short it was. I'm doing longer next time for sure.
Danny's really great to work with. He's very skilled and I'm glad he's teaching what he knows because I'm pretty sure he keeps himself busy with a lot of projects. I highly recommend lessons with Danny. It's fun and comfortable because he's a great person and funny and easy to be around even if you haven't taking any lessons on singing.

Danny came to our house and did lessons for my son in our living room. My son used to take group classes with Danny at a Network for Young Artists, a non-profit but since we moved out of that area, we needed more one on one time. My son has improved in confidence, singing has gotten better. He even sang at a family birthday party for his little sister and even did a speech. I would have never imagined that type of confidence.

My first class with Danny was great. Immediately, he was able to identify strengths and weaknesses and was able to ignite confidence in me.

Danny has helped me with a project I had for my church. It was my first time singing in front of my congregation or more than a few people and my dogs. So I set up classes and could only find good acoustics in my walk in closet. So with my laptop I did classes and right away Danny was able to point out my problem areas. Long story short Danny's advise is to always "work with what you have". So the day of the performance we had some tech issues and one of two monitors went out. I learned and was reminded to why I was singing and kept smiling. It was a success. Even though was nervous and shaking a bit. They loved me. Now I perform every chance I get.

First time taking Skype lessons. Danny is very diverse in explanation and in music terms since, I have only sung karaoke and in my shower. Despite my low end camera and microphone and also limited space...The advice and coaching were top notch. My friends and family are already giving me props. What a great feeling! Thanks I recommend.

I hired Danny early this year 2016 at my home studio in Austin,TX. I have been working on a recording studio project. With 6 songs I needed to record. I did three songs on my own. That took a week and a half and at least 5 to 6 hrs each. I looked around and hired a local coach who was very classical and just didn't get it. 3 hrs I will never get back. I found Danny online, hired him, and it was perfect...We warmed up with scales and light cardio. Very different I will say but effective. Anyways, we finished the 3 songs in just under 2 hrs. Wow! Straight to the point. So I sing Gospel music and had so many techniques wrong. A little bit of good habits goes a long way.

Danny has been working with my daughter for almost 5 years now and we love his approach. My daughter has learned to be a stronger performer, she knows how to interact with the crowd and also knows how to audition. She has landed a local lead part at her local theater production. My daughter looks forward to the classes.

Danny has an approach that is professional and realistic to real life situations. Most coaches I've worked with before were only able to help me with basic piano scales. Danny actually went further and worked on my song which is R&B and taught me how to interact with a small crowd. Yikes, it works.

First lesson was very instructive...learning the basics....will be doing exercises. Danny is patient and communicates/instructs well. Builds confidence. I expect improvements to this old voice box!!!

As a teacher, I feel I can spot a good teacher; Danny is a good teacher. His strengths lie within his professionalism and approachability. As an instructor, Danny crafts instruction that is clear, relevant and purposeful. Perhaps his greatest asset is his firm but gentle guidance into challenging material. Here, Danny is respectful, but sensitively demands greater skill and effort. If you're looking for an A+ teacher, then look no further.

Danny has helped me get comfortable on stage. I always had a fear of talking to my audience in between sets. I get so nervous. Not anymore. So going in for voice and learning how to use a the microphone but also the icing of knowing what to say. I am not perfect now, but not a horrifying mess like I was. Now I can at least speak and feel relaxed. Simplicity singing lessons that f work. :)

I hired Danny to help me in the studio. I was recording about 3 songs I needed help with. On these original songs, I had been working on with another coach unnamed that had me do scales and but after hours of recording, the coach didn't know what else to say except breathe deep. With Danny in about 15-20 min, we were able to knock out my songs easily. Danny isn't your average instructor. He actually goes beyond scales. Some of my issues in were singing close to my break and certain phrases were hard to work with. Others were as basic as the way I was standing. I am impressed.

My first time taking any type of vocal training before. I did this in hopes to be a better singer in my car. One day I was humming and a friend herd me and said I sounded amazing. I could feel my face turning red because I thought at the time I was alone. Anyways, months later... Guess who's doing karaoke on Tuesday nights?!!

I have been playing piano for 8 plus years and recently started singing and playing. Danny has shown me great techniques to positioning and utilizing a mic while playing and holding my notes while playing. As an added bonus, I even extended my upper range a whole octave higher, that was totally unexpected. After my first solo gig, I got amazing feedback. I am excited and ready to do more.

I have worked with vocal coaches since I was a kid and for the first time when working with Danny within the first lessons, I have already improved my range and control. Also just the basic use of parts of my voice that didn't even know existed. I am also learning how to use my mix and I am excited as it comes in handy in singing country pop.

Danny V is the best coach I have had in a long time. Right on our first meet, we had a talk of my long and short term goals. Danny was able to customize a lesson plan that helped me prepare from being a background vocalist to a front liner. Also helped me with how to use and hold my microphone.

Danny V is everything you could want as a vocal instructor.

I came to Danny about 3 years ago wanting to take lessons. I had a very light classical type voice but I wanted more. Danny worked with me and helped me build my voice up to be strong, powerful yet controlled. I can do everything and more that I had only dreamed of doing with my voice. Not only that but I am STILL improving. Danny helped me believe in myself and that I could achieve the voice I wanted, now I'm here and I couldn't be happier or more proud of my voice! I have and still do recommend Danny to other singers he is the best you can get!

Wow

I have worked in the industry as a musician for 25 years and have worked with various vocal coaches. Danny has made a tremendous difference and I have been seeing improvements weekly. Being that I sing soulful music it has always been hard training with other coaches because they don't understand what it is to have a flow and soul. I do recommend. This coach can also sang!

Amazing

When working with various coaches, I noticed a few have what I call ," One size fits all". Meaning one lesson plan everyone. Mine situation was very unique. I had a bit of issues with my breathing in my lower voice and then needed help expanding my range. Danny helped me with that. Not only did he guide me, Danny also demonstrated how to use the right techniques. Also the facilities was a commercial location, not someones garage. I was able to bring my friends and they relaxed in the lobby. I felt and experienced results in my first week. I still take lessons to this day. Thanks a million....

Excellent

Danny is versatile in various styles. The kicker is that he assessed my voice and then found out I had a few trouble spots and I was shy about singing in my higher registers. Not anymore! I noticed a difference in my first lesson. Homework was emailed to me and I was told if I work through it daily Ill see results in the first week...No lie.. It actually works.
