Ms. Daniele is the best!!
Originally from Brazil, Daniele is a piano and voice teacher, accompanist, and performer located in Champaign-Urbana. She holds a bachelor’s degree from the EMBAP University (Escola de Musica e Belas-Artes do Parana) in piano pedagogy and music education and a master’s degree in composition from the Southeastern Louisiana University. During her academic years, she collaborated as an accompanist for recitals and plays, performed in musical theatre and operas, and participated in many Musical Festivals and Masterclasses in south Brazil.
With more than 12 years of teaching experience, Daniele believes the most crucial goal in piano lessons is fostering an enjoyment of music that lasts a lifetime. To nurture and develop that music appreciation, she believes students need to become musicians in their own right.
To help students become well-rounded musicians, she likes to instigate discovery learning by asking questions and having students think independently rather than merely giving instructions and corrections.
She loves hiking, biking, and spending time with her friends and family. She has the privilege to help more than 50 students at the Champaign School of Music and loves meeting with them every week.
