Private Vocal Lesson


50 per session - Virtual OK - Posted Mar 14, 2017

You will receive a 45 minute private voice lesson from an Opera singer to strengthen, and bring out the your unique pure sound. I have taught all ages and various styles to hundreds of singers over the past 15 years and have developed a teaching technique which is creative, fun and delivers immediate results. I teach in a huge acoustic room on a baby grand piano in my home. You will love being able to hear your authentic sound in this room! If needed, you can also receive your lesson on Skype. We will spend half of the lesson singing vocal exercises and the second half of the lesson on vocal repertoire. Vocal repertoire can be chosen by the student if you have something particular you are working on or want to learn, otherwise, I love finding music which suits your voice as I hear you!

Daniella specializes in private vocal and piano lessons, advanced music theory instruction, songwriting, and composition. She offers a warm professional environment where students of all ages and levels are encouraged, challenged and inspired. While learning a classical technique that will bring the most natural agility out of their instrument, students are also exposed to a wide range of repertoire to suit their interests such as Jazz, Broadway, Musical Theater, Opera, Pop, Blues, and Folk music. In group settings, Daniella often accompanies students on the Baritone Ukulele, which allows her to move freely throughout a classroom.

Private students usually participate in at least one annual public performance and are encouraged to audition for local performance opportunities and/or apply for advanced music education, which they prepare for as a part of their individual lesson plan.
