About the Author
Dana Lentini is passionate about teaching the art of singing to people of all ages. She began her professional work in music as a successful classical singer, but along the way she would find herself in circumstances that led her to share music with children. As someone who had been told that children shouldn’t take voice lessons, Dana began an educational journey to learn about how the art and science of singing might be effectively applied to young singers. After cultivating techniques during her time teaching K-6 general music and directing children’s choirs, she combined her education experiences and vocal pedagogy knowledge to create Born 2 Sing Kids™, a voice program designed to nurture the development of beginning singers ages 5-13. A noted pedagogue and expert in teaching methodologies for this age group, her articles and podcasts have been distributed worldwide.
Dana holds a Bachelor of Music degree in vocal performance from the University of Southern California and a Master of Music degree in vocal pedagogy from Oakland University. In addition to her work with Born 2 Sing Kids, she has served as a member of the voice faculty in the Preparatory Department of the College Conservatory of Music (CCM) at the University of Cincinnati and in the Department of Music at The College of New Jersey. In recognition of her excellence in teaching, Dana was a 2018 recipient of the Joan Frey Boytim Award for Independent Teachers, presented by the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS).
When she is not teaching and writing about her studio strategies for young singers, Dana enjoys physical activities like running, yoga, and Pilates and spending time with her husband and three wonderful children, all of whom share her love of the performing arts.
