"My studio has only one mission. You the Artist.”

I am deeply committed to a Mind-Body-Spirit approach to the art of the performing voice.  Throughout my musical career,  it has been proven to me time and time again that when you free the mind, strengthen the body and release the creativity spirit, the voice emerges triumphantly!

Private and Group Classes are held at The National Opera Center at 330 7th Avenue, NY, NY 10001, right down the street from Madison Square Garden.

Ryan Michael James,

Lead Singer - 88 Keys - Carnival Cruise Line.

"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 Carnival Cruise Line all within months of Diane's guidance."



"I think you have to take big risks to keep going. "
