Our Instructors

As an Ottawa Valley girl through and through, growing up in Braeside, Ontario, Danah-Lee studied music and excelled in musical theory. But the groundwork for her knowledge began at a very young age, when she would literally steal the music out of the trash after Sunday morning church services. At the time, she was determined to learn the complexities of chords, vibrations and sounds; wanting to know how each flowed together to create music. Since then, Danah-Lee has learned how to use her knowledge freely and has developed a framework for creating music to express what is happening internally.

Danah-Lee studied music at the former Taylor University College in Edmonton, Canada as well, earning her Contemporary Voice Teaching Diploma from the Voice College in London, U.K. Danah toured throughout North America with her music and after a life changing winter vehicle rollover, (which nearly took her life), Danah-Lee put all of her love and energy into building her dream of teaching students of all ages.
