♫ ABOUT DARCI AND HER "TECH AND TRUTH METHOD™" FOR VOICE ♫




Darci has been studying music since the fourth grade, performing professionally since she was 15, has studied voice extensively since she was 16 with some of the country's premiere vocal coaches continuing through college at Belmont University in Nashville, has sung in the studio and on the stage with world-renowned recording artists, released two solo CDs, is an award-winning songwriter and dabbles here and there in acting. Over the years she has molded together the best of everything she has learned to create her own "Tech and Truth Method™" for vocalists and has been sharing it with her students for over a dozen years. By applying a combination of classical and speech-level methods to all styles of contemporary repertoire, Darci can help you improve upon and/or master the following:
  1. A daily vocal workout that will keep your cords in tip-top shape well into your golden years.
  2. Chest mix - Darci's specialty; her techniques will keep you from blowing your voice out ever again.
  3. Breathing - it's just not as complicated as some would have you think.
  4. Tone - color, warmth and fullness can be yours, usually with minor adjustments.
  5. Range - did you know you could hit that note? Totally true. And (usually) easy.
  6. Power - louder is not correcter; learn to hit the back of the room without shouting.
  7. Flexibility - clean up licks, smooth through passaggios and switch placements with ease.
  8. Style development - find your own voice as an artist and/or learn to sing varying styles.
  9. Song choice & interpretation - the vocalist is merely the vessel for the story.
  10. Performance skills - it's less about choreography and more about singing your truth. 
  11. Vocal "cheats" - how to save your voice during performance and still make it musical.
  12. Confidence building - say #byefelicia to the Negative Nate or Debbie Downer in your head.
  13. Audition/show/tour prep - Darci can get you ready for whatever is on your horizon.
  14. Speech protection - learn how to save your singing voice by protecting your speaking voice.
  15. Songwriting consultation - constructive critique and guidance in contemporary song craft.

Plus so much more that is unique only to YOUR glorious vocal cords and YOUR desires and dreams as an artistic, creative being. Darci takes students in person in L.A. or anywhere via Zoom or Skype, ages five and up. Whatcha waiting for? Book a session with us today!
