"I feel VERY strongly that  Diane helped me find my voice. I began to immediately apply my newfound technique to my auditions and was thrilled to walk away from them feeling like a better singer, better storyteller. Diane Tauser is a gift to those seeking their ultimate voice.”

She is the real deal."

Broadway Voice Boot Camp

Experience the Broadway musical scene!

 

This 3-HR musical theater workshop meets every 2nd Saturday of the month from 10AM - 1PM. Each session focuses on a specific musical, and includes vocal and creative warm-ups, followed by a work-through and final sing-through of the score. Open to all ages and skill levels -  music provided.

"Working with Diane has really helped me to connect with my voice, and with myself as a performer. By watching others sing in this group style class and overcome their own personal battles, I was able to recognize my own habits as a singer, both good and bad.  I have become infinitely more relaxed in audition settings, helping me to book with Busch Gardens, Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line, and Carnival Cruise Line all within months of Diane's guidance."
