Voice Lessons

Darci has been performing professionally since she was 15 and has studied voice extensively since she was 16 with some of the country's premier vocal coaches. Over the years she has molded together the best of everything she learned to create her own "Tech and Truth Method™" and now shares it with her students. 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:

~A daily vocal workout that will keep your cords in tip-top shape well into your golden years.
~Chest mix - Darci's specialty; her techniques will keep you from blowing your voice out ever again.
~Breathing - it's just not as complicated as some would have you think.
~Tone - color, warmth and fullness can be yours, usually with minor adjustments.
~Range - did you know you could hit that note? Totally true. And easy.
~Power - louder is not correcter; learn to hit the back of the room without shouting.
~Flexibility - clean up licks, smooth through passaggios and switch placements with ease.
~Style development - find your own voice as an artist and/or learn to sing varying styles.
~Song choice & interpretation - the vocalist is merely the vessel for the story.
~Performance skills - it's less about choreography and more about singing your truth.
~Vocal "cheats" - how to save your voice during performance and still make it musical.
~Confidence building - say #byefelicia to the Negative Nate or Debbie Downer in your head.
~Audition/show/tour prep - Darci can get you ready for whatever is on your horizon.
~Speech protection - learn how to save your singing voice by protecting your speaking voice.
~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 Skype, ages five and up.

Overview

Darci Monet is a seasoned professional vocalist, vocal coach, songwriter, comedic actor, talk show host, speed demon typist and retired nanny. Over the years, she has managed to make jobs out of nearly all her favorite hobbies, so in her private time she likes to Netflix and chill or have game nights and wine with friends. She enjoys swimming a lot but does not enjoy long walks along the beach because walking in sand is very difficult and no one bothers to mention that before you've gone and gotten yourself trapped in a dune.

But you're here about vocal training...

Darci has been performing professionally since she was 15 and has studied voice extensively since she was 16 with some of the country's premier vocal coaches. Over the years she has molded together the best of everything she learned to create her own "Tech and Truth Method™" and now shares it with her students.

Darci Monet CAN DO and STILL DOES what she teaches! She is not only an expert vocal coach, but an active professional vocalist, performer and award-winning songwriter. A native upstate New Yorker who started her career in Nashville singing backup for some of the most accomplished recording artists in the business, she brings twenty-plus years of formal study, hands-on experience and a joyful, down-to-earth presence to her coaching. Either in person in her studio in L.A. or anywhere in the country via Skype, Darci offers training in contemporary vocal styles, basic musicianship, ear training and songwriting consultation.

Darci's clients include a 2010 Tony winner, currently touring performers, contestants on American Idol, X-Factor and RuPaul's Drag Race, professional actors and dancers (Lady Gaga tours, Avatar, American Idol, 24, Fringe, Disney Paris, various commercials, Pandora, XM Radio), corporations (Choice Hotels, Emu Australia) and several up-and-coming entertainers currently performing at L.A.'s historic rock clubs, cabarets and theaters. She was head judge for a popular local singing competition for two and a half years and her award-winning songs have been heard on television, in independent films and on radio worldwide. Darci performs all over Los Angeles and often travels for performances and master classes throughout the country.
