Dani Roth has over 15 years experience in providing musical theatre voice and acting training to ages 5-22. I provide individualized voice and acting lessons to students of all ages. Through a repertoire-based teaching system, my students add songs/material to their personal repertoire while receiving a strong and healthy foundation in the fundamentals of singing, learning terminology and the mechanics of phonation, and developing their own unique voice. With a strong background in musical theatre and directing, I also coach mu students on the performance of each song. I give each student a clear lesson plan with goals, a practice regimen, and achievement levels. I approach lessons with a belief that I'm not only providing students with comprehensive training that is instrumental in their growth as artists, but also with the goal to boost their self-confidence, inspire their passion for the performing arts, and broaden their communication skills.
I believe strongly in the power of music and art and have seen firthand how it can truly change lives. What is most inspiring is watching each student grow in confidence. I love empowering young people with the tools to find their own voice and their own truths through the performing arts!

I talk with the student (and parent) about what the student's past experience is, what their goals are, and what kinds of material they are interested in working on. I usually start a first lesson by vocalizing a student to see what their range and abilities are. Then I have a student sing something they know for me so I can see what shape their instrument is in and so I can see their level of performance and ability. Then I teach them something brand new to see if my teaching style works for them. Then I give the parent and student a brief evaluation of the students strengths and weaknesses and administer an overall "plan" for progress.
