Success Stories Created From 1992-2014!


"Denise's extensive knowledge in vocal technique and performance in addition to her enormous heart and passion for teaching makes her one of the best voice professors I have had the opportunity to work with. In our time together she helped me develop a solid vocal technique and also the skills and foundation to grow as a musician and artist. In addition to her knoweldge in music, she was also instrumental in my musical theatre college audition process, assisting me in selecting and refining my audition materials and package. Denise Sherman has not only been one of the most profound musicians I have collaborated with, but also a true role model and friend. I am a better musician, artist, and individual for knowing and working with Denise."

"Denise Sherman brings a wealth of musical experience to the lessons she offers her students. My daughter has been working with Denise for two years and during that time she has excelled in every musical endeavor attempted, thanks to Denise’s coaching. When my daughter first began taking lessons with Denise she was a member of a junior varsity show choir. She now is a member of two varsity choirs and has scored numerous solos throughout this time. Denise is such a skilled teacher that my daughter looks forward to her lesson and comes out of it excited about the music she’s working on and anxious to challenge herself even further than the week before. Denise has the unique ability to both inspire and push her students as a result of her vast experience as well as her natural love for music and her students. Recently, my daughter won Best Female Soloist in a large show choir competition with much credit due to Denise’s willingness to spend extra time with her the night before the performance. My daughter works hard and is a talented singer, but the time she spends with Denise is what makes the difference between being a really good singer and being an excellent performer."

"My daughter, Amanda, was so fortunate to have Denise Sherman as her voice teacher beginning at age 12. Denise is so skilled at developing each of her students own unique vocal talents and strengths. With Denise's help in preparing for all of her auditions, Amanda was thrilled to achieve her dream of being selected as a member of The Carmel Ambassadors Show Choir for both her junior and senior years of high school. She was selected each year to be in Carmel's Spring Musical productions. Her senior year, as a Carmel Ambassador, she was selected to enter a soloist contest at one of their most challenging competitions. Denise found a song that was perfectly suited to Amanda's vocal style, and she won Grand Champion Soloist! Denise is dedicated to helping each of her students to reach their fullest potential and goals, and gives her students her complete support. My daughter is now a college freshman, and whenever she needs Denise's help all we need to do is call and Denise is always willing to help and make time for her. Denise goes above and beyond. She is an amazing vocal teacher and we wholeheartedly recommend her. Thank you, Denise!"

"Denise, On that day when you said the music festival where you are going to sing, Abi did not expect that you will let her sing too! You told [her] that some of your good students will sing and so she thought she is not. Then you told [her] that she would and that made her so proud! She needs that kind of experience. Abi still needs to work on her nerves and still need[s] to believe in herself! Thanks for making her belief in herself, by believing [in] her.
