Deanna Peden will be in SW Florida teaching lessons in Port Charlotte as of April 2020 and is also available via online lessons. She thoroughly enjoys developing new talent (minimum age 13) when they are preparing for auditions, competitions, scholarships and either struggle with or need to improve their quality of sound (tone), breathing, diction (pronunciation) as well as projection of sound, communication, confidence and presence to help them compete to get lead roles, get more scholarship for college (money) and place higher in competitions. She also helps refine professional singers and works with adults who like to sing for the sheer joy of it. She helps adults that enjoy singing for personal pleasure and as a hobby to find music that is suitable for their particular voice and help find ways to perform and get involved with the community, if desired. She has a great track record of working with choral singers as well. She helps with preparation of anything vocal and has spent her entire adult life doing so!
