“I think Diane’s an excellent teacher. Her approach to teaching Bel Canto is subtle, steady, sure, and really effective. She knows how to guide students to open up vocally. With her as a teacher, I was able to find beauty, musicality, power, and a sense of artistry and meaning in my singing. She’s wise and kind, professional but flexible, and she really helped me. I’d happily recommend her to anyone.”

“Diane is a superb singing teacher for a first time singer like me. She has shown me techniques for warming up my voice. They are like a relaxation for my throat even when it is scratchy from a cold.
The way she sets up her classes is great. She makes sure never to push my voice too far while we practice the low and high ranges. I’m proud to say I learned to sing well for the first time in my life with Diane!”

Plus, the online lessons are amazingly powerful and convenient…perfect and brilliant!”

She has a wonderful understanding of the voice, unlike other teachers I have met. With her guidance and subtle tweaks she has me implement, my voice is now producing a quality of sound I didn’t realize I could sing.”
