We’re Confident Voice Studio.

We are 3 AMAZING teachers who can help with voice lessons, piano lessons, and songwriting.  Our expertise ranges from preschool to adult.  From the first lesson to nailing an audition or preparing for performances.

We specialize in healthy technique, confidence and fun with music. We teach in classes, private lessons, workshops, and more for children, teens and adults.

We have performance experiences in concerts, plays, musicals, nightclubs, and events.  We have been on stages across the country including the The Crystal Ballroom, The Bite of Oregon, Boston Conservatory, Oregon Symphony, and Oregon Ballet.

I’m Deanna Maio, the Founder, a Teacher, and Certified Professional Coach.

I’ve coached countless singers and instrumentalists for auditions, concert prep, solo concerts, collaborations with large bands, and much more.

“Confident Voice Studio gets 10 out of 10.

My child loves them and has grown so much as a person and as a performer.”


“I love seeing how happy he is after every class!”


He races through the door to begin the lessons.

Anyone who helps my kid (or anyone’s kid) learn to love music gets 5 stars.


You’ve Got Questions. We’ve Got Answers.

Q: Do I need to be a naturally talented musician?

No.  It’s a common myth that you have to have a natural talent to sing or play well.  You don’t.  You’d be amazed how well your music can sound after training and practice.

Q: Aren't virtual or online lessons ineffective because of the sound delay?

A: Not at all! We’ve completely figured it out, and there’s no special equipment required. Our methods ensure seamless, interactive, and effective lessons that provide the same high-quality experience as in-person classes.

Q: Can I join a class even if I have no experience?

A:  Yes!  Our classes are designed to build individual confidence while we build your music skills. We love beginners and advanced students alike.

Q: I already have some experience. Will this be good for me?

A:  Yes!  All of our teachers are professionally trained performers as well as teachers.  If you have a love for music and you want more, you’ll be right at home.

Q: Are your programs interactive classes or one-on-one?

A:  Both!  This all comes down to what’s best for the client.  Most of our kids’ lessons are interactive classes with the benefits of individual attention and making friends with others.  Each child is on their own learning journey and can move as fast or as slow as you want. Making together is a great opportunity to develop other musical skills at a younger age.  And one-on-one can be the perfect solution for a pro, recovering from an injury or in prep mode for a big show.

Q: How much time do I need to block off for this?

A:  This all comes down to what the client needs.  Most of our kids’ classes are roughly 45 minutes a week.  And some of our clients are with us 2 hours a week.  It really depends on what the end goal is.

Q: Will there be recitals?

A:  Yes. We call them Performance Parties. We do them in person, virtually, and at local community events.  You can have the opportunity to perform in front of a live audience.  

Q: Is there a performance or recital fee?

A:  No.  All of our performances and recitals are free to our clients.

Q: Is there anything else for me to buy?

A:  No.  You just show up to your lessons ready to sing.  You will need to have access to an instrument at home eventually if your goal is to play piano, guitar, uke or violin. We can recommend a great instrument to get started with.

Q: Will I be put into a contract?

A:  No.  You can be a customer of ours for 30 minutes or 30 years.  We hope it’s the latter 🙂

Would it be a ridiculous idea to see if we are the perfect fit for what you’re looking for?

So how does this all work?

6 Tips To Help Your Child Through Transitions

Transitions are a part of growing up. The older they get, the more complex the changes are that happen around children. As a parent, it isn’t easy to see your child go through challenging times. It’s also hard at times to avoid taking their behavior personally, but it’s important to remember that they are going through many changes and need your support.

Here are six techniques that can help your child to move through transitions easily and successfully:

1. Understand what they are going through
2. Don’t take their behavior personally
3. Let them know you are there for them
4. Help them find their support network
5. Encourage them to stay connected to hobbies and interests outside the home
6. Keep the lines of communication open

Transitions can be difficult for everyone, but especially for children. By understanding their situation and supporting them in finding their support network, you, as a parent, may help your child through these changes.
