Many singing lessons are built around ‘learning a song’. But Dr Dan works differently. It’s not Dr Dan’s job to teach you songs (you can do that at home on PlayStation or YouTube).
“At Djarts we believe it is our job to teach you how to sing!”
This means building and training your voice from the ‘ground-up’. Dr Dan’s lessons are technically focused and equip your voice to sing a range of songs–not just the ones we sing in lessons. Yes, we do work on style and song interpretation (inc. phrasing & vocal effects); but importantly these are built onto a firm foundation of technical development. Dr Dan’s sessions are not for the faint-hearted. Developing the voice for the rigours of contemporary vocals requires dedication, discipline and a willingness to learn. A highly rewarding journey awaits those who choose to engage in this innovative approach to singing tuition. Calling on more than 10 years of academic research, nearly 20 years of teaching experience and 25 years of professional performance, Dr Dan has designed a learning pathway that is both comprehensive & intuitive.
