DB Voice Studio
Private Voice Studio created and taught by Classically Trained Soprano, DIANA THOMPSON-BREWER
About the Instructor:
As the instructor of DB Voice Studio, my mission in creating this studio is to expose as many local musicians and upcoming artists to a level of excellence and artistry that they themselves can achieve via hard work, concentration, and discipline.
I have taught privately for over 10 years, and many of those students have been accepted into or attended colleges such as UNC School of the Arts, UNC Chapel Hill, UNC at Greensboro, University of Kentucky, Manhattan School of Music, Rutgers School of Music, etc. to major in Voice. I have also taught music degree-seeking students with a concentration in Voice since 2017 via The University of Georgia in Athens, GA as a Doctoral student (Doctor of Musical Arts degree to be conferred May 2020).
I work to expose students to varying types and styles of music, the singers who were and are famous for their level of excellence in their respective styles, as well as provide them with their own performance opportunities to perform within the studio and outside (volunteer activities, recitals, etc).
Not only do I work to help each student become a better singer, but I also work to help them become smarter singers. Learning how to read music, count rhythms, sight-sing never before seen exercises, and being able to decipher different stylistic periods are all goals of mine for each student in the studio. What's exciting is that every student seems to surprise him/herself by how much he/she knows and can do after only a short period of time of trying and studying these things!
The studio is open to high-school-aged students through adults.
Students and I work on repertoire ranging from choral literature, solos from school productions/musicals, operatic repertoire, musical theater repertoire, English/German/French art song, jazz, and some light, popular ballads.
Private voice lessons are structured to best fit the needs and goals of each individual student, but a healthy process and technique are the focus for every student in every session. We work to strengthen and expand each student's music reading abilities, vocal technique, and personal vocal repertoire based on the student's personal and professional goals and interests.
