Private Lesson Rates

COVID-19 Edit: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic I am only teaching virtual lessons (via Zoom) at this time. As the pandemic continues to cause financial strain for many, I have widened my sliding scale from $70-$120 / 55 min. and ask that you pay what you can. If this rate does not feel feasible, please reach out so that we can figure out a way to support your financial situation and your creative voice.
"As someone who has sung all my life, but never had lessons, I've been thrilled to work with such a talented and terrific voice teacher. Danielle brings enormous expertise based on her impressive music education, as well as from her years of training her own voice and performing. She is a gifted teacher who builds my confidence. I've been singing lead in a band and several people have told me they can tell the difference in my singing since I've been taking lessons from Danielle. I can't recommend her highly enough." -Wendy J.
"I have always wanted to sing publicly but have felt shy about what I perceive to be my voice's limitations. In just the few lessons I have had so far Danielle has really helped me understand and focus in on my strengths and offered concrete approaches to address where I am weaker. Her presence is warm and has helped build my confidence. She doesn't fit students into predefined boxes but lets them explore where they would like to go with their voices. Also, I appreciate her knowledge of jazz repertoire." -Sam I.
"Danielle was an outstanding vocal teacher! Each lesson we had was really tailored to my specific needs and provided a ton of materials for me to learn from. She really helped me develop my skills as a vocalist, particularly with her jazz expertise, and furthered me as a musician." -Nikki B.
"Having Danielle as a teacher was an incredible experience. She helped me find my voice and she did so with patience and encouragement. Not only were the lessons enriching but they were fun!" -Daniela M.
