Teaching since:
August 1990

I am a graduate of Cal Poly Ponoma University with a BA degree in voice. I have 20+ year experience teaching voice and piano. Building people is my passion and commitment. My students learn by doing and I love the growth each student takes from their lessons as well as their performances. I am a working artist in the music field as a vocalist, conductor, and motivating speaker.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students in a 30min, 45min, or 60min lesson will experience technique which will be translated to songs that will give students a great opportunity to put the technique they learn and practiced to good use. In 3 to 6 months of lessons students will begin to see themselves growing and getting more control of their instrument, more confident, and wanting to start performing what they are learning.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The teacher's home studio is in a room with a piano and musical books. The room is large with a grand piano and keyboard.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students need to provide piano though I am willing to work with students in getting equipment.

*** Specialties ***
In voice I have used the Alexander tech.

This was my first experience with any type of formal voice lessons. The first lesson was great. The instructor is skilled in vocal instruction, instrument training and formal music theory. The lesson was fun, informative and I easily paced for me to follow.

At first I was very skeptical about my daughter having piano lessons online. However, after the first lesson with Mr. Dansby my mind was put to rest. After 3 lessons my daughter improved so much and best of all her confidence at the piano has increased. Thank you Takelessons and thank you Mr. Dansby!

Dansby is a great instructor. In just the first lesson, he helped me gain confidence which significantly improved my tone quality and helped me hit notes I couldn't before with confidence. I can't wait until my next lesson with him!

It was awesome. He has a very nice touch on the keys as well. I went to help improve my leading for my church. And he was very knowledgeable in Gospel, as well as modern church music. But he also has appreciation for secular music, as I do, as well. Very nice man.

Excellent vocal teacher

We have found Mr. Studivant to be professional, courteous and experienced. He has helped to develop and improve my daughter's vocal ability and her singing confidence has grown (in front of other people). He communicates in a timely fashion and provides necessary feedback on her progress. We are grateful to have him.
