Elena D. is a talented teacher and singer. She brings experience from many years of training and performing to each lesson. This is her calling and she makes each lesson a joy as I continue to learn more about music and how to take my voice from ok to wonderful. After each lesson, I walk out excited about something new I learned that I can practice and use. She instinctively knows where I am and where I need to go to get to the next level. She is patient and encouraging. If you want to be your best, Elana will help you get there.

This instructor completely transformed my voice from mediocre to pro. She found ways to bring out the best of my voice while building my self confidence! I went from a non-singer to lead singer with two studio albums.

Very much recommended.

I can honestly say she's one of the best vocal instructors out there. In my personal experience I have never encountered the most amazing teacher in my life. She's the reason why I truly do not give up on singing, in addition to her encouragements to strive for more then my personal best. She knows how to teach vocal techniques and is far more specialized then any person to help achieve the best results.Through many personal lessons and workshops my voice started to improve tremendously. She had many professional experiences of her own, along with getting her students to the best places. For the younger students, her rate on getting in to the performing schools are extremely high. Once you are in she will be able to help with many things school related such as exams and etc. For the older students she can definitely help with preparation for college auditions. Elena even provides competing and outside performances to experience what it is like to perform in front of others.hat means no more stage fright. For those who just love to sing or are interested in singing this is the place to go. You'll have a lot of fun and make all your friends go crazy over you perfectly shaped voice. Overall, she has the best preparation and experience and helps you become the singer you always want to be. This is the teacher to go to.

Elena Diaz-Acosta is one of the greatest teachers I ever met. She is also a great person! I am training to be an accompanist as well as church musician under her instruction. Her instruction provides a warm and welcoming environment and will also make students into better singers with voice and acting techniques. She encourages students to make the best of their voices by having them sing the repertoire that is meant to bring out the students voices. wonderful person and teacher!
