I enjoy seeing others grow in confidence and I enjoy seeing people get inspired to do things they never thought they could.
Dana is so patient and she loves to have fun with her students. She makes them feel comfortable enough to make mistakes and encourages them to keep going. She truly loves her students as if they were her own kids. The studio is fun and inviting and I love spending time there. I'm so glad she is who she is, a true blessing to all.
I served as adjudicator for some of her students and learned that Dana Rice was challenging and encouraging to them. The students were eagerly striving. It was an amazing session.
She challenges her students with enjoyment. That encourages them to venture.
When I first meet with a new student I spend some time getting to know the student's musical tastes as well as what interests besides music they have. I ask questions to learn what their experience with music is and how their family enjoys music.
I search for commonalities between myself and the student and build upon those. I use the info from the questions I asked to guide the lesson plan that I will develop for the student.
I started studying music privately when I was only 5 years old and continued to study throughout high school while attending a performing arts high school. I continue to hone my skills through collaborations with other musicians.
In addition to training in music I have trained in theater and dance.
In addition to private study I participate in several music organizations. I've also studied songwriting with Berklee College of Music.
Besides my direct training in music, I have a degree in Chemistry which helps me greatly with the analytical aspect of music.

I work with ages 4-adult. Most of my students either work professionally in the entertainment industry or plan to do so.
Each year we showcase our students in an event called Big Dreams Concert. They get to perform solo, in groups, and with industry professionals. This year they performed with a jazz artist and actor who has years of experience leading a touring jazz band.
My advice would be to find a teacher who appreciates the type of music that you are interested in playing/singing. Look for a teacher that will dedicate time to you and your goals. Also look for a teacher that provides lots of performance opportunities because music is meant to be shared in public as well as for personal enjoyment.
