Doreene is amazing! She believes everyone can learn to sing with proper lessons and technique. It's obvious she really cares about her profession and really enjoys what she does. I couldn't believe how quickly I learned skills that can easily be practiced anytime. She is fun, a great instructor and would be great for kids and adults alike. 5 stars all the way! Eric J

She gave our daughter great confidence in her singing abilities while correcting some bad habits she had developed. This allowed our daughter to audition and get several roles in various musicals.

I was beginner singing student and Doreene was a great teacher! Due to scheduling - I am having to discontinue at this time.

Doreene met with our daughter and made her feel at ease and comfortable from the start. She listened to her sing and made several suggestions that made an immediate difference in her singing. Looking forward to many more sessions with her.

Doreene is fun to be with and has a lot of knowledge for helping with voice widening exercises. I have noticed improvement in my head voice techniques and am happy to be working with her.

I first started taking from Doreene about three years ago. I live in a place where there seem to be absolutely NO good voice teachers, and I was absolutely lost when it came to technique. Luckily, I was recommended to her by a friend and have been taking lessons over webcam ever since. All I can say is Wow! What an improvement! I had no connection into my chest voice when I first began taking and was terrified to sing anything other than classical. Now I feel confident singing pop, theater, Broadway, you name it, because I have faith in my voice and I know that she's always right. You'll never have to worry about being embarrassed about your voice when you sing for her or anything. She's fun, friendly, happy, and she knows what she's talking about. Even if you don't plan on being famous one day, you will love being able to use all three parts of your voice and will develop faith in your own singing, something that we always try for. Thanks so much Doreene!!

Doreene is the best vocal teacher ever! She's funny, fun to be around, so intelligent and all around a great vocal teacher!!

I would recommend her to anyone looking for voice lessons. She really knows what she's talking about and she'll be honest with you! Which is what people want, right??

I've been going to her for almost four years and I plan to for a long time :) - Quaid S.

Doreene is fun, entertaining, and a very talented voice instructor. She thought of ways how to improve my singing and it has helped me immensely. She never made me feel awkward or caused me to shy away to try her exercises. She is very open to me which made it easier if I had any questions in regards to my singing technique. I will recommend her to anyone who is either looking to learn how to sing or improve their singing voice. If I did not have a crazy work schedule, I will still continue taking lessons from her. 5 stars well deserved!

Awesome!

Doreene is a wonderful teacher. She has helped me so much. At first I was so nervous, but she made me feel so comfortable. We have so much fun (which is what singing should be about), while at the same time my voice has really developed. I'm so glad that started taking lessons and wished I hadn't waited so long! Thanks Doreene, you are the best!!

Absolutely incredible!

I have learned so much in this class, it's amazing. Doreen is brilliant, just...genius! She notices every little thing, and it amazes me every time. Before every class she would ask how my throat is, if it hurts...etc. This way she knew what to expect and how to treat my voice. One time I came in with a sore throat, and every few minutes she would make me take a sip or two of water. Doreen is not only very intelligent, but she is friendly and makes you feel comfortable. You will always feel accepted and at home when working with Doreen. She is witty and nice to everyone. She is honest and kind about it at the same time. I don't think this woman has ever told a lie in her life. She has taught me more in this class than I think I could have learned anywhere else. In conclusion, I adored everything about this class. I highly recommend working with Doreen!!!
