Greetings, songbirds! ♪♫

I'm Darci Monet and I would love nothing more than to sing with you! I've been a professional vocalist since I was 15 and have studied voice with some of the country's best teachers since I was 16 (and let's just say that was a hot minute ago!). I've been coaching singers for a living since at least 2001 (on and off long before that, really). I just might be the best kept secret in Los Angeles because I keep my roster small in order to maintain focus on each individual singer and keep things exciting and fresh at all times. You won't catch me "phoning it in" with my singers. I love what I do and maintaining a smaller, select roster of committed artists helps me keep it that way! 😁

My down-to-earth attitude (I'm originally an east coaster!) and cozy but open environment will make you feel at home and at ease. My fool-proof "Tech and Truth Method™" for voice and years of hands-on performance experience will help you get your voice where you need it to go. I don't believe in distracting you with a bunch of bells and whistles and unfounded promises. I believe less is more. I believe in keepin' it real. I believe in helping your find YOUR voice and then helping you master it. I believe in REALLY teaching you the art of singing with safety and freedom and to perform for your audience with heart and authenticity. If that sounds like what you're looking for, then the Darci Monet Vocal Style Studio is the perfect fit for you! 👍

Darci is amazing!

I have been taking lessons with Darci for quite awhile now. She is a fantastic coach and has helped me expand my vocal capabilities, making me feel more confident in any performance or audition situation. I have a strictly Musical Theatre/Classical background and with her help, I can know comfortably sing many different styles of music.

What really makes Darci stand out as an instructor is the environment she creates. She is nurturing without pandering, supportive while being straight forward. That type of honest, thoughtful coaching is hard to come by in a city like Los Angeles. She is truly unique in a city full of cookie cutters. I would not want to learn from anyone else!
