Singers and Singer/Songwriters, it’s a new age, and we’re continuing our work to enhance your skills as performers, online.

Daria and Lua coach professional and semi-professional singers in Performance Skills ranging from technique tricks to the singing storyteller’s relationship with the lyrics and the audience.

Our goal for each participant is to help you feel confident on stage and on camera, connect to your audience effectively and become more expressive in your performance. Let’s take it to the next level!

The class will be held via Zoom. Singers please have backup tracks or you may self-accompany. 

Please email lyrics for 3 songs that you will be performing to Lua and Daria by Friday July 17th.

A Zoom link and details will be sent to students prior to the first session. Requirements include: Good internet connection, web camera and sound. An external mic and external camera are highly recommended, though not mandatory.

Daria is a jazz/pop stylist and educator who teaches private lessons, classes and workshops online. She directs the Marin Harmony Acapella Chorus.

Lua approaches the song through the lens of the theatre and cabaret artist. She is developing Zoom curriculum for the SF Opera’s Department of Diversity, Equity and Community.

Together, we coach our students in small groups, providing a supportive environment.

“Absolutely helpful for all performers, not just vocalists. The tips and suggestions were spot on and really paved the way for tremendous growth.”

Contact Daria with any questions.

“I highly recommend Lua and Daria for inspiring singers with the emotional content of a song, plus giving great technical tips for singing better.”
“I deeply appreciate both Lua and Daria for their combined expertise and experience in guiding me back to my soul and heart’s true desire. Thank you!”
