Deanna Peden - voice coach (studio in Litchfiled Park, Arizona).
Ms.Peden is a teacher who gives her students the feedback they need to be the best they can be. A "no nonsense" approach gives her students the kind of information they need to succeed in a very competitive business (even when they are singing for the shear joy of it).
Ms. Peden went to school at The New England Conservatory of Music in Boston and lived in New York City where she performed and taught from 1993-2000. While in New York, Deanna made her debut at Lincoln Center in 1996. After leaving New York in 2000, she started a vocal studio in Miami, Florida where she taught voice, musical theater and classical music at the New World School or Performing Arts as well as at The Harid Conservatory of Music at Lynn University in Boca Raton. In 2002, Deanna opened a vocal studio in Southern California and taught voice at the Orange County High School of the Arts in Orange County under the artistic direction of Susan Egan (original Belle in Beauty and the Beast). Ms. Peden lived in Houston from 2003 to 2010 where she was the producer and director of DLP Productions "Houston on Broadway".
I love that Deanna really relates with her students and makes you feel like you are in a safe space where you can learn and grow.
comfortable teaching a variety of material (classical, pop, musical theatre), challenging and encouraging- pushes me to do my best, to be better than I ever thought I could be :-) Flexible and understanding with the demands of other activities in my life
