"She has such wisdom of how to communicate to each singer in the way in which it will best relate to them. I began to immediately apply my newfound technique to my auditions and was thrilled to walk away from them feeling like a better singer...a better storyteller. This might be the largest gift that she has given me thus far. Diane Tauser is truly a gift to those seeking their ultimate voice.”

"Her methods are direct, organic, creative, and rooted in a tradition of solid, healthy technique. I’ve seen her approach work in numerous styles from Classical to Show Tunes to Rock, Folk, and R&B, and with students of all ages and experience levels. She’s the real deal.”

"Diane's methods are as helpful in rock and pop as they are in classical and Broadway styles, and her gentle spirit and patience make lessons a pleasure. Diane is a master teacher for singers of every level. And I know you'll feel as fortunate as I do about having found Diane! "
Kathy Searle (Android Commercial - Crown Jewels Teaser)
"Working with Diane has made me a better actress. I use her breathing exercises and vocal warm ups all the time! She not only coaches you vocally but she works with your confidence so you can deliver the best performance. Diane is more than a coach and teacher; she is a mentor and an inspiration! She challenges me and pushes me to be better. I am forever grateful."
Lisa Ortiz (Pokemon The Movie – 2011)
"If you plan on opening your mouth to make a sound in performance, see this woman! I do a lot of difficult and rangy character voices. Once, I was cast in a project where I had to perform a voice that would have been extremely strenuous on my vocal chords."
"Diane Tauser has been a blessing for my vocal health, auditions, performances, and self-esteem. Her techniques have allowed me to access new colors of my voice and have taught me to sing with ease. Her advice regarding repertoire and performance technique has been invaluable. Not only does she help you build a more consistent and beautiful voice, she enriches your spirit with her constant encouragement. I highly recommend Diane to anyone looking to improve their voice, repertoire and performances."
"I have studied with Diane Tauser for many years. I still study with her today, both in person and Via FaceTime. She has always had my best interests in mind and she has influenced my career in very positive ways.
Thank you Diane for all your insights and knowledge which you have so unselfishly shared."
Christine Rowan (The A List – New York, Season 2)
"I received a BFA in drama from New York University and have been a working actor since graduation. Despite my fantastic education, I never felt that I really had a voice teacher who I could relate to. I was so lucky to have found Diane. After the first meeting with her, I was so inspired. Although I have worked professionally as a singer, she helped me find areas of my voice that I didn't know existed. My range is significantly bigger, and those results were almost immediate."
(Connie’s Avante Garde Restaurant – Founding Member)
"She is one of those rare teachers who possesses both the technical knowledge of how to make a voice produce better sound, as well as the in-depth acting knowledge to help you better affect people while on stage. Nothing gets past her: when you know you're faking it, she knows too, but when you're riding that wave, she's right with you. Diane's training not only increased the confidence I had in my singing voice, but it also dramatically improved my speaking voice—making me not just a better singer and speaker, but a better actor as well.”
(2006 Gemini Award Nominee – Cartoon Network)
"I am the creator of Naughty Naughty Pets showing on the Cartoon Network in Canada & USA. I came to Diane because I was given the opportunity to contribute one of the voices for the cartoon. With her vast knowledge and unlimited patience she has given me the confidence to use my voice professionally without fear. I have had so much fun learning with Diane, and even though I find it to be the hardest workout of my life, it has also been the most gratifying.”
"Diane Tauser's technique of connecting mind-body-spirit to the voice as instrument has augmented not only my performance skills, but also my directing, choreography, and teaching. Her method of training the body to enable and free the voice is infinitely empowering! ”
('97-98 World Tour Rocky Horror Picture Show; 2002 World Premiere – I'll Be Seeing You)
“Diane Tauser is by far the most important voice teacher I have ever studied with. She has succeeded in freeing my voice from the constraints I'd put on it, and is constantly directing me to new discoveries in multiple styles of music. From opera to rock she finds the path of least resistance in my instrument so I can comfortably and safely tackle any style of music.”
