Announcing Private Voice Lessons!
Dear Former Kaleidoscope Kids, parents and friends:
Over the years, I have been asked many times if I would consider giving private voice lessons. My answer has always been an emphatic: Who me? No way! But the more I was asked, the more I thought about it. So, after contemplating the idea, I have decided to take the plunge! Take the big dip-a-roo!
I’m excited to share this news with all of you. Lessons will be taught in my home in Corona and I will take on just 10 students to start. I may decide to add a few more down the road, but for now, the magic number is 10! Registration will begin online at 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 21st. This will be on a first come, first served basis. Once these 10 spots are gone, they’re gone! No groveling, no “but we are friends...can’t you make an exception this one time.”
Make sure to put it on your calendar and don’t say I didn’t tell you so!
Over the next 10 days, be sure to keep an eye out as I will be contacting you by email with specific details about my voice lesson program, the cost and how to sign-up online the minute registration opens up. I’m ready to share with my students all of the knowledge and experience I have gained over the past 25 years as a Broadway singer, actress and dancer. When I was a girl, dreaming of starring on Broadway, I would have loved to have taken private voice lessons. I never had the opportunity and it almost cost me my career. You see, I got a starring role in the First National Tour of Cats when I was 21 years old. The demands of singing 8 shows a week took a serious toll on my voice and, since I had never learned to sing correctly, I wound up developing nodes (painful calluses on the vocal chords)! The doctor prescribed a month’s rest with no signing or talking! I knew if I didn’t learn to sing properly, I would ruin my voice for good.
I was fortunate enough to hook up with one of the best voice teachers in the business, Eddy Sayegh. I studied with him every week for several years. Eddy taught me to sing correctly and, most importantly, he took my voice to a whole new level. I never experienced another problem because I had finally learned to sing the right way.
I went on and landed leading roles in Broadway shows including Eva Peron in Evita (National Tour), Claire in Jerome Robbins’ Broadway (First Nat’l Tour), Ellen in Miss Saigon (First Nat’l Tour), Narrator in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (South Bay Civic Light Opera) and my proudest moment was playing the role of Val on Broadway in my favorite musical A Chorus Line.
I will give your kids as much instruction and guidance into the wonderful world of singing as Eddy did for me. I’m so excited about this step I’m taking. Be sure to stay tuned for more details over the next 10 days and remember, registration opens up online at 12 noon Saturday, March 21st! Be there or be square!
Talk to you soon,
Diana Kavilis Morris
