Along with phenomenons like Norah Jones and Erykah Badu, I was trained at the Arts Magnet in Dallas. I continued my education by completing a Bachelor's degree in education. I'm a skilled vocalist, dancer and choreographer. I've sang back-up for national recording artists, completed quite successful CD projects and have the gift of teaching! I do well with identifying strengths and stretching them as well as refining weaknesses.
*** Lesson Details ***
I look forward to helping you identify your goals. We will develop a plan to reach them and benchmarks that will show you how you've progressed. If building your stage presence is your goal, we'll use mirrors, practice drills and role plays to help you master the art of performing. Should you want to sound better, breathing techniques and vowel shaping are guaranteed to improve your voice. I am full of energy and know just how to motivate you.
*** Studio Equipment ***
The teacher's home studio includes a keyboard and seating in a space in a clean and finished basement space. She also has a microphone to use. East Washington includes an upright piano and can bring the microphone to use if needed. Seating is available.
*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical, Broadway and rhythm and blues. I also thoroughly enjoy country.
· · I have observed progress following the helpful instruction Dionne has given me. She is pleasant and skilled in her teaching.
· · Dionne is the best! She has helped inspire me to see more in me than what I thought was there. I'm improving and learning more with each lesson...faster than I thought I would. This opportunity came sort of by chance and I am so glad that I have the chance to work with her. Now I am a HUGE fan of her music :) Thank you Dionne for helping me find my voice!
