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.

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!
