Deanne really helped me grow as not only a singer, but as a performer! I saw great improvement over my three years working with her and she the most caring and supportive teacher!

Deanne has been so wonderful with this shift to online teaching. Deanne is talented, patient, intelligent, and really makes any student improve tremendously. Any student is lucky to learn from Deanne.

I agree with everything the other reviewer and student said. Deanne is very knowledgeable, positive and enthusiastic. And she makes voice lessons really enjoyable. I was on the fence with taking voice lessons and I am extremely glad I went with it, and Deanne is a big part of this reason.
