You will learn the secret to a natural, shared coordination of the singing muscles coordinated with the ear and proper breath management, no matter what style you sing.

It truly is the whole body that sings. With these tools, you will have the ability to increase range, stamina, pitch control, and more; in short, total management of your instrument in all registers and styles with no breaks, thus leading to more confidence in your own performance, whether professional or ameteur. Darlene's proven vocal technique and coaching style makes vocal study easy and fun. You'll also experience higher levels of self-confidence and new techniques for ear and brain to focus and learn at accelerated speeds while enjoying the health and emotional benefits of the art of singing. Awaken these new sensations and learn things you never dreamed possible you could do with your voice. In addition to her professional studio, Darlene has developed her proven special technique to quickly help those who have difficulty singing out of tune or out of rhythm or difficulty in matching pitch all together.
