About

A lifelong entertainer, Deanna Maio teaches vocalists strategies for giving your best performance consistently.

Coaching with Deanna you’ll:

  • Feel more confident about your voice through strengthening your vocal technique

  • Clearly communicate the message of your songs and truly entertain your audience

  • Choose repertoire perfect for your auditions, performances, and developing your skills

  • Work toward your goals with a teacher who understands your learning style, strengths, and success principles

Blending the 3 pillars of the performance, Deanna helps students find their own unique vocal expression in any genre, healthfully and with humor and fun.

Vocal Quality – Students will learn a system of vocal exercises (the Thomas Blaylock method) that will increase range, endurance, and strength, build an even color line through the voice, and improve breath control.

Interpretation – Through working with exercises and songs, students change their understanding of what is vocally possible. Old vocal patterns start to shift, allowing for new creativity to emerge.

Presence – Singing can stir up old emotional patterns, and with Deanna guidance, you will look at them with compassion. Students find more freedom to be present to the music, recognizing judgments without being stuck in them. Then singing can be done “with emotion” as an actor), but not “emotionally”.

All musical styles, skill levels and ages are welcome. From “Shower Singer” to “Gigging Performer” Deanna partner with you to help you reach your goals faster and easier than if you continue on your own. Contact us today for more information.

Engaging, Kind, Understanding, and Informative

We’ve been searching for a piano teacher for a few months. We knew we wanted our son to experience lessons and develop an early skill set for music but we also knew we needed a teacher who understands the needs of young kids and loves teaching them. But it’s so hard to find a teacher who is passionate about 4 year olds AND has a schedule that accommodates working moms.
Most of the teachers I found could only do mid-day appointments.
Deanna is engaging, kind, understanding, and informative. She connected with Tommy immediately and had a teaching style that is clear and direct. She also was able to vary activities in a way that allowed Tommy to focus and feel successful.

We Love Her!

My 4-year-old son has been taking lessons with Deanna for the past 6 months. I am a preschool teacher. I was immediately impressed by how Deanna was able to connect with my child and work with him with such calmness and ease.

My son tried many different classes and has had many different instructors. Deanna has by far been his favorite instructor and he is always excited and ready for class.

The program she uses is wonderful, it introduces children to sequencing and patterns, fine motor skills and development and so much more. I highly highly recommend classes with Deanna. We love her!

Deanna’s a Confidence Booster

Before studying with Deanna… I was less confident overall in my singing, my voice cracked in a lot of places and my range was a bit narrower. The most difficult part about that was singing in front of others and not being quite sure what notes were going to come out of my mouth.

The thing about Deanna is that she is very welcoming, supportive and makes you feel comfortable. My biggest insight learned during our lessons was that it is possible to get my voice to be more predictable, the importance of proper breathing and that it really is helpful to record and listen to your own voice. And this was valuable because it’s a confidence booster especially during performances.

I gained confidence, comfort and knowledge about singing. I’d recommend Deanna to singers that want to stretch the current limits of their voice and feel more confident singing. Thanks so much for this great experience!

He races through the door to begin the lessons

From the get-go Deanna’s been a great piano teacher to our 5 year old and each week he races through the door to begin the lessons. It’s only been a few months but we can sense his growing understanding of how the piano works. Anyone who helps my kid (or anyone’s kid) learn to play and love music gets 5 stars.

She helped me find my true voice

Before I worked with Deanna my singing voice did not feel natural. She has helped me find my true voice.

Deanna is that she is keenly focused on your particular needs as a singer, and is able to assist you in reaching your particular goals.

Working with Deanna, I gained confidence, strength of voice, as well as greater range.

Terrific job connecting with my son

My 10 year old son started taking piano lessons with Deanna Maio at Confident Voice Studio a couple of months ago, and she has done a terrific job connecting with him and helping him advance his piano practice. We highly recommend Deanna!

Could not recommend her highly enough!

Deanna is FANTASTIC! We honestly went to another piano teacher with our son previously and he was not engaged. She is patient, energetic and consistent – he is SO excited every time it is lesson day. Could not recommend her highly enough!
