Singing is one of the most powerful vehicles for communication, confidence, and joy. As a voice teacher, I aim to help my students discover all the benefits offered by a musical education, and cultivate the freedom of expression that can be achieved through healthy singing.

Drawing from lifelong experience in voice performance and education, I practice a holistic approach to singing. My teaching philosophy is grounded in the science of vocal function, dramatic interpretation, physical awareness, music literacy, and self-exploration.

I welcome students of all backgrounds, ages, and levels of experience into my studio. Whether your goals are to pursue a professional career in performance, or to simply have fun, I am committed to helping you find your voice and achieve your goals!

Testimonials

Danielle is such a fantastic voice teacher! In my first lesson, she immediately put me at ease with her warmth and positivity! She’s given me fantastic guidance and tips to help me navigate my vocal technique and rep, as well as a safe space to make mistakes and learn from them. I truly enjoy working with Danielle and always look forward to our lessons! — Brielle

Danielle is a great teacher - super encouraging and fun. She is a lovely singer and so inspiring to her students. My 11 year old felt really comfortable exploring her voice and it’s range, and the vocal exercises really strengthened her singing and confidence! I would recommend Danielle to anyone, especially those who are shy and quiet (regardless of age!) and need a gentle touch and warmth to bring them out of their shell! — Lisa

Danielle is an extremely talented and kind teacher. She is a wonderful performer and has first-hand knowledge of the music world. She also has a wide range of knowledge when it comes to style and repertoire- from classical to music theater and the like. Danielle is super patient and dedicated as a teacher and anyone would be lucky to work with her! — Martha

Danielle has been teaching our daughter for about 3 years now and we have had such a great time working with her! Not only has my daughter’s singing voice improved, we’ve seen her grow into her confidence. When she had told us she wanted voice lessons years ago, honestly, my husband and I were shocked. We had barely heard her sing and NOW she’s not shy to share her talent. She even got a part in her school musical this year! “Ms. Bavli” is incredibly supportive and sweet to her and we can’t thank her enough for the work she’s done with our daughter. She’s very professional and makes scheduling easy! Highly recommend! — Ruth
