Are We the Right Music Academy for You?

Find Out What Makes the Confident Voice Studio Difference

  • No Registration Fees, Ever

Many schools charge $40, $50, even more just to register you, and charge you again every year. We don’t think that’s fair, so we will never charge you a registration fee.

  • All Books and Materials Included at No Extra Charge

We are the only academy that provides all books needed at NO COST to you. No more unexpected expenses.

  • Frequent Communication With Parents

We know you want to stay connected with your child’s musical growth. We’re always available by text, email or for a few minutes after lesson to talk with parents and keep them up to date.

  • Located in the Beautiful, Sunnyside Neighborhood

The Sunnyside/SE Hawthorne offers free parking, dining, salons, and shopping. We love our location and you will too!

  • Lesson Alternatives

Can’t make it to the studio for your lesson? No problem. We can have a lesson by Zoom, my private, free web conference system. It’s similar to Skype or Facetime but better. Can’t have your lesson at your regular lesson time? No problem. Video yourself or the student performing their pieces and I’ll review and provide feedback during our lesson time.

  • Student Waiting Space

Our waiting area features chairs, tables, books and games where students can study and do homework while waiting to be picked up.

  • No Long Term Contracts

Our lessons are month-to-month, so you are not tied into long commitments. We want you to be here, not feel legally bound to be here.

  • Private Lessons Specializing in Education and Artistry Development

We have over 20 years in the entertainment industry and have worked with international superstars. We can help train you for a career in music.

  • Free Annual Showcase Recital

Our low stress showcase is free for all performers, and each performer gets free tickets for friends and family.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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!
