Jeannie Deva Vocals ArtistWorks

Today ArtistWorks announces the sad passing of our Vocal Teaching Artist, Jeannie Deva.

Jeannie was recognized as one of the top Voice and Performance Coaches in the world today. She helped thousands of singers around the world to improve their vocal performance. Her clients included Grammy Award winners, finalist on televised talent shows, multi-platinum recording artists and leads in Broadway’s iconic shows, Capitol Records, RCA, MCA, Rounder Records and Sony.

Her teaching career spanned 40 years with the most recent three as ArtistWorks’ Vocal coach.  Jeannie Deva was a member of the Grammy's and Latin Grammy's, published author, clinician, recording studio vocal producer and session vocal coach, trainer of voice teachers and originator of The Deva Method® used by singers and voice teachers around the world. As a session vocal coach she worked with producers and engineers for such luminaries as Aerosmith, The Rolling Stones, The Cars, Amy Winehouse, Ludacris and DJ Jazzy Jeff. In 1975 Jeannie graduated from Berklee College of Music with a BA in Composition and Arranging and she assisted in establishing the college's voice department. Jeannie is survived by her husband and manager, Joe Scoglio and her sister, accomplished violinist, composer, author and teacher Julie Lyonn.

Jeannie is an uplifting spirit who brought brightness to the lives of many and we will miss her. Rest in Peace.

“It’s not an obvious technique but it’s something that pays off big time in terms of musicianship and your overall feel for the music. It just makes music more fun to play.” - Keith Wyatt

We sent this out in an email but in case you missed it, here’s a great practice tip from Keith Wyatt about improving your internal metronome. The idea is to work on this exercise for 30 days and by the end of it you should see some results. If you’re one of Keith’s students, be sure to send him a video showing him how it’s working for you.
