Danielle Lo Passo
CMUS – VAPA Director
and teacher of Singing & Piano
She fell in love with the art of singing and has never looked back since! Danielle has been in various groups and bands performing mainly for big corporate events. Although she has had the pleasure of performing in the main cities of Australia, Danielle’s love of teaching has taken the main position in her life and she wouldn’t want it any other way. Wanting to give her students more opportunities to have studio time, Danielle gained an Advanced Diploma in Audio Engineering and topped the class. Her ear for music and zest for production has given her the opportunity to work with emerging songwriters and play a vital role in the production of their demos.
After 7 years of working for other studios, Danielle branched off in 2011 and created Vocal Adrenaline Performing Arts with less than 20 students. The studio has grown considerably since it’s humble beginnings which is testament to the quality of lessons each student receives. – “It’s not just about teaching someone about music, saying goodbye and doing the same thing next week. It’s about giving them the tools and motivation to be the best they can be and to fix their own problems; for them to be able to leave each lesson and say “I learned something new today”; to be able to go home and write their own song and understand what works and what doesn’t.
“If my students can watch another performance and be able to have an intelligent musical conversation about it, I’ll know I’ve done my job”
