I have been a professional actor for over 40 years. I first started working with Deborah in 2017 when I was transitioning from musical theater to performing jazz in more intimate settings. I found Deborah to be exciting to work with because of her knowledge and understanding of both genres. She has an ability to communicate clearly, and can easily guide a vocalist through exercises that have an immediate positive effect.
I continued to work with her while preparing for an important video demo of my work for publicity and marketing purposes. I will be forever grateful to her because she was able to zero in on some bad habits I developed as a vocalist. She was able to correct and redirect me in a way that was nonjudgmental, effective, and productive.
I highly recommend Deborah Benner to any beginner or professional vocalist. Her knowledge and coaching style is superb. Her personality is delightful. Her appreciation and fondness for vocalists and her dedication to the craft is evident.
