Why Confident Voice Studio For Voice Lessons?
With many options for voice lessons in Portland, Confident Voice Studio is consistently voted #1 by our customers. Our teachers, location, involvement in the community, business philosophy and our focus on serving our customers are just a few of the things that we believe contribute to earning that place in our customers’ minds.
At Confident Voice Studio, you are not simply signing up for private voice lessons. Rather, you are joining a community that is all on the same mission together: to inspire a growing community of passionate and excellent musicians! We create this community atmosphere based on some core principals:
• Everyone has value and should be accepted, included, encouraged and affirmed through their interactions at Confident Voice Studio.
• We must challenge each other to continually grow, develop and improve through focus, hard work and practice, AND
• We must be honest and kind to each other at all times.
This idea of community is central to who we are as a company and how we interact with our customers. It is also key to helping us serve our students in a way that builds confidence, social skills, coordination, work ethic, personal responsibility and, of course, a love for and ability to play music.
Our studio is stocked with everything students need to create a great learning environment. From inspiring posters, to music stands, mirrors, whiteboards and a keyboard, we make sure to have a comfortable and safe space for lessons to take place. We maintain an open door policy with parents who want to sit in on a lesson from time to time.
How Do Voice Lessons Work At Confident Voice Studio?
Once scheduling is out of the way, it’s time to rock. You will meet with your teacher once a week at the same time each week for 30, 45, or 60 minutes, depending on which you select. Our favorite lesson length for most students is 45 minutes because it allows time for building a relationship, warming up, reviewing what was learned in the previous lesson and providing new instruction. Thirty minutes is great for younger students and an hour-long lesson is great for more advanced students who are interested in accelerating their progress. We offer several music lesson options. These various packages offer options to our customers to match their needs related to schedule flexibility, pricing and commitment.
What Will I (Or My Child) Learn?
At Confident Voice Studio, students will learn to train their ear, expand their range and find their own unique tone. We offer training on how to properly use your voice to get the best sound and avoid injury. Every voice is different, so lessons are tailored to individual needs in order to develop the voice to its full potential. We understand that voice lessons can be scary, so we work to learn about who you are, what you want and how to best help you learn. You will spend your lesson time on a mixture of warmups, exercises and learning songs you enjoy to help build your repertoire. Many of our voice students use this time to prepare for upcoming auditions, performances, or simply to continue to develop their talent.

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.
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!
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!
Engaging, Kind, Understanding, and Informative
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.
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!
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!
