“Your voice is your truth is your power”
singer / vocal coach Diane Louise Roy
I’m an intuitive vocal coach and if you have vocal blockages. I can target the largest of them within the first few minutes of our meeting.
As the constrictions start to unravel, specifically designed vocal exercises are applied to clear away vocal blockages layer by layer allowing your true voice to shine through more and more, whether for song or for speech.
Once this process is set into motion, your voice will continually get stronger and grow organically, with minimum effort and maximum gain.
Express yourself! True expression is true art…the place where you and your higher power meet.
In my early 20’s,voice. I had the good fortune of studying a tried and true method of singing called Bel Canto, which allowed my voice to grow exponentially over a course of only 2 years. From that point on, I never looked back and have performed as a singer/pianist and vocal coach for over 30 years worldwide.
- Diane is a fabulous singer and she knows how to impart her know-how. As a fellow professional, I can testify that Diane’s approach starts in the right basic places, so that singing develops naturally and just gets better as you go along. – David Cambrin , Baden Baden, Germany Guitarist/Songwriter/Singer
- I can say from the moment I started singing with Diane I felt comfortable (which had never happened before in a vocal lesson.) I loved her energy and her method help my vocal technique increase in an effortless and really enjoyable way. I will never forget how it felt when I first sang open vowels over her piano – Emily N., Special Needs Therapist – Vancouver BC
- Thank you for your patience and marvelous coaching! – Allison R., Singer/Actor/Dancer, Vancouver BC
- I am a fairly new student of Diane’s. She has just rescued me before a very important audition. Through very gentle exercises, she has targeted my weak spots and revolutionized the way I approach singing. I also find her ability to help with song interpretation exceptional. – Ulrike L. , Actor/Singer – Berlin, Germany
