Reviews for Online Singing Lessons with Jeannie Deva

  • "I am really happy about Jeannie's vocal school, it is far better than I expected it would be. It actually gives people the opportunity to get the highest quality one on one vocal instruction for an extremely reasonable price as well as being very accommodating on a person’s schedule."Michelle
  • "I was leading songs at a bluegrass jam yesterday and it feels like all the ingredients are starting to blend. I could really feel the resonance as I sang. I've also been "using the vowel" to accurately learn the melodies to the songs we sing and it is making SUCH a difference. It's really exciting to be on this path! "Larry
  • "Since I started doing the rib cage exercises regularly, I have noticed a difference in my voice: it feels easier to sing without using much effort, my voice sounds fuller and more resonant, I've got more control. I'm so glad this is happening!"Linda
  • "I have listened and practiced the first 5 vocal lessons and I have already seen results! How is this quick? I'm really blessed to have the opportunity to be taught by Jeannie and to see that music is loved by many people."Judive

  • “I wanted to tell you that your lip trills and vocal exercises have really improved me greatly to the point where I’m singing rock like how I always dreamed – in my personal style as well.”Sharmeka
  • "My voice feels free. Even the higher notes come out easily. I even tried singing a Celine Dion song that I had been struggling with. The freedom I feel when the sound comes out is unbelievable and I know it's only the beginning."Sarah
  • "Never in my life did I ever think I could learn to sing or that I would be singing in front of people, it's so cool. I am so humbled to have this going on in my life. I am so excited every day about this."Dana M
