Since beginning my lessons with Diana in September 2020, we have achieved so much as a team. Diana is very encouraging, approachable and a fun teacher. She caters to all of my specific needs and explains concepts in ways I can understand and relate.

During our time together my voice has grown and refined so much. Ontop of that, I have learnt about vocal protection and health, and have learnt various genres of song to expand my technical and stylistic abilities with my voice.

I feel proud about what I have achieved as a student, and Diana has encouraged a lot of self belief and confidence in me and my singing abilities.


Singing lessons with Diana Rouvas is a dream come true. I was a fan first and then got lucky and became a student. It’s no secret that Diana is an extraordinary singer but she’s also an amazing teacher. You’ll never know the potential of your instrument until it’s been crafted by her wonderful methods and attention to detail. I’ve been with her for over five years and I now have significantly better technique, range, pitch and expression. And we have GREAT fun doing it! Diana is not just a great artist but also a really down-to-Earth human with a wicked sense of humour. What’s not to love?

Linda Harrison

I have been taking vocal lessons with Diana Rouvas for 4 years now and I have noticed a dramatic improvement in my voice.

Not only do I feel like I’ve developed greater power, range and control over my voice but I also feel she has allowed me to have such a deeper understanding and connection with my voice. Her teachings have given me such a clearer perception of the voice and the way it is utilised when we are singing. This understanding has further allowed me to identify issues or problems that are occurring in my voice and find a healthy and workable solution which is a process I didn’t really have access to prior to Diana’s teachings.

As well as being an amazing teacher she is also an understanding, caring and passionate person which adds to her dedicated teaching methods. Through her private vocal coaching sessions I have felt comfortable to discuss and work on any hurdles I am facing with my voice and feel assured that we will find a solution that I can work on.
