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.

Before I started working with Deanna I was “light” in stage presence. Deanna’s direction allowed me to push past the previous limitations that I set for myself.

The thing about Deanna is that her approach to instruction allows a newcomer to feel welcomed and at ease when learning new techniques and being exposed to a whole new array of material, such as music. Deanna’s considerate, patient, and observant.

I have gained an even greater stage presence. I loved working with Deanna.  I’d recommend Deanna to other vocalists who want to use their voice as an ultimate instrument in their performances.

Deanna, I’ve attended two other audition prep programs and they were ok but nothing as comprehensive what you did. You taught us so much more. I don’t know how many auditions I’ve been through in the last 4 years…I could have used this a few years ago.

About Deanna Maio

Deanna Maio is a Voice, Piano and Ukulele Teacher and Performance Coach specializing in vocal function for singers and speakers, fun piano and ukulele for all ages. She teaches private voice instructions, workshops, classes and to kids and adults in Portland, Oregon and with remote students around the world. She is the owner of Confident Voice Studio in SE Portland.

Ms. Maio has an extensive background in performing on concert, theater, nightclub and event stages. As a versatile Lyric Character Soprano with a 3+ octave range, Deanna most often sings solo swing and classic pop and musical theatre repertoire. She is the founder, artistic director and a principal performer at Portland Musical Theater Company. She has also coached countless singers in audition techniques, competition preparation, solo club gigs, working with a big band, and much more. Over the past 40 years, Ms. Maio has been performing on stages, big and small, all over the country, including with the Oregon Symphony, at the Crystal Ballroom, and The Bite of Oregon.

Deanna started dancing at 2 years old and just hasn’t stopped enjoying the stage. She grew up performing and has continued on in that tradition, taking lessons for dance, voice, piano, ukulele, stage presence, and acting. She has also completed a 25 hour course in vocal pedagogy through the NW Institute of Voice where she was certified the Blaylock Vocal Method for teens and adults.

She scored her first professional (aka lived on the salary and didn’t have a side job) singing/acting job in 1998 with American Cabaret Theater after having completed numerous acting roles in middle school, high school and college.

She has taught privately, at summer music camps, afterschool programs in voice and ukulele, and speciality workshops like “Your Knock ‘Em Dead Vocal Audition.” She has performed with several local music groups including The Bureau of Standards Big Band, Girls., Swing Sisters, Tony Moretti and the Ray Sands Orchestra, and her own band, Deanna & the Downbeats and is a sought-after guest artist.

Ms. Maio is a certified associate teacher of the Blaylock Vocal Method. Developed at the Northwest Institute of Voice by Thomas Blaylock, it is a systematic approach to vocal development. This technique is revolutionary. It can teach you how to find and maintain a clear and fully resonant sound every day (either speaking or singing). When your voice is “under the weather”, you will learn how to work with it so you don’t have to stop using it to let it heal.

She is the Founder and Executive Director of Portland Musical Theater Company (PMTC). She has written and produced 5 original musical shows, directs and performs in many PMTC shows. She’s completed film, television, and industrial acting roles in Portland since moving there in 1999.

Deanna completed her debut CD titled” Deanna & the Downbeats” in 2008. She is a sought after voice over artist with over 100 voice over recordings to her name including the audio book version of Amazon bestseller “The Stolen Twin” by Michele Pariza-Wacek. Her own book, “GPS for Success” with Dr. Steven Covey and Dr. John Gray was published in 2010.

Other than music, Deanna loves to direct, dance and act. She just loves to perform. When she’s not doing those things she’s probably watching vintage makeup and hair tutorial videos, playing board and card games, or daydreaming of cheesecake.
